Infdev 4

Released on: Wednesday, November 30th, 2022

Ships can now be commanded and are upgraded individually. Fixed a bug from Infdev 3 where some list items where not displayed with a background. Also updated along with the user authenitcation API to be more stable and easier to work with. It is now RESTful for any other devs interested. The command /sound play [id] is now /playsound [id] and the /reloadengine command is now /debug reload.



Infdev 3

Released on: Wednesday, November 30th, 2022

Changed the camera to be 3rd person. A/D keybinds changed from strafing to rotating. Changed how the GlowLayer interacts with the scene. Slight transparency on some menus!



Infdev 2

Released on: Wednesday, November 30th, 2022

Fixed default keybinds not loading and an issue with checking if the player had certain materials.



Infdev 1

Released on: Wednesday, November 30th, 2022

Added infinite worlds, 3 more ship models (for the crusier, battleship, and dreadnought), sound effects, account authetication (you will need an account to play the game now), and a tutorial. We also balanced some ship specs, tweaked the debug/F3 screen, changed the menu title color, fixed ship texture rendering, added modding via raw js, and added some more randomness to the game in the form of some randomized player spawning, planet spawning, and ship spawning. The sizes of planets and stars has been doubled. Finally, the available space where you and enemy ship can spawn expands with a bigger fleet.



Indev 11

Released on: Wednesday, November 30th, 2022

Removed the debug screen alternate keybind (Shift+D) and add a view hitboxes feature (F4). Fixed the issue from last snapshot concerning respawn.



Indev 10

Released on: Wednesday, November 30th, 2022

Added space battles! Get within 200 units of a planet's fleet to engage in battle. A small change: the version display in the main menu is now a link that points to the patch notes for that version.



Indev 9

Released on: Wednesday, November 30th, 2022

Added modding. Mods can be managed at the mods tab in settings. Please see the modding API reference to make a mod.



Indev 8

Released on: Wednesday, November 30th, 2022

This is a BIG snapshot! Finally, 3D ship models have been added! Please note that the only unique ship model is the destroyer. All the other ships use the corvette model due to time constraints. Also, the textures won't load properly, so for now we've made them all one emissive color though its not ideal. We've also added in a 3rd-person camera. This is accessible by pressing R (The keybind is labeled toggle perspective). Oh, and there is a new settings for camera sensitivity under general. Also greatly improved chat (/ to access). Chat is now positioned lower (right above the input box). The debug screen is also improved. Visually, the background is only over the text. A few new sections were added. Below the closest planet, the locked target will be shown, and next to the player rotation is A which has info about the ArcRotateCamera (3rd person). You can now play two songs ingame via the /sound play command. The 2 song names/ids are rift and planets. Also a major under the hood change: All assets have been moved to Data URLs. This has the huge benefit of not needing an assets folder. The version can also be downloaded without needing all the dependencies (except for the libraries). Due to this, the game file is 190x bigger than snapshot 7.



Indev 7

Released on: Wednesday, November 30th, 2022

Added actual space movement physics, added the new Navigation UI (open with q, allows you to warp between systems and lock targets), and added a few new tech types. Added propulsion which increases base speed, Zero-Point Drive that allows you to instantly stop, and Force Keel, complicated. Read the tooltip ingame.Also, with the new tech type comes a new modding feature setting a value in tech.[type].rq to 0 will mean that a tech type will be locked if the player researches the other tech type.



Indev 6

Released on: Wednesday, November 30th, 2022

Added a background in-game (stars) instead of the plain purple. Fixed the game-breaking bug that you could open inventory/pause menu while save was being created or the other was open.



Indev 5

Released on: Wednesday, November 30th, 2022

Added a new Keybindings section to settings and added dynamic item name/amount displays to the inventory. Also finally fixed tooltips and improved dynamic UIs in general



Indev 4

Released on: Wednesday, November 30th, 2022

Indev 3

Released on: Wednesday, November 30th, 2022

Added a progress bar for and optimized save creation, system object is now read only, and did a few minor bug fixes (e.g. how the date for a save would be undefined)
