This one is really a pretty small release in terms of what is publicly ready in it, but there were enough player-requested tweaks in there that I felt like it was worth getting out tonight rather than waiting for a larger batch of stuff tomorrow.
The minimap has a few more options and works a little smoother now, and overlords and lieutenants now give a consistent satisfying EXP gain rather than varying so much based on your relative civ level. That second one is where the name of the version comes from, given there wasn’t a whole lot in this one.
Oh, another cool one, though: actual music in the settlements! It’s ambient enough and long enough that it shouldn’t get annoying if you’re in the settlement screens for a really extended time. And I expect we’ll do some more settlement tracks to mix in with that one over time, too, since you can choose to spend so much time there.
This is a standard update that you can download through the
in-game updater itself, if you already have 0.500 or later. When you
launch the game, you’ll see the notice of the update having been found
if you’re connected to the Internet at the time. If you don’t have 0.500 or later, you can download that here.
