2.2.5

Patch 2.2.5 was released on 2019-03-07[5] with the checksum 05d3.

Balance

  • Pop growth: Reduced Random factor in pop growth, habitability has more of penalty on growth selection, lessened bias towards new species, and traits have a larger effect on Robot selection
  • Strike craft now do more damage, have longer range, are faster, and turn and accelerate quicker
  • Machine Empires get 50% more resources from mining bases

2.2 ‘Le Guin’ free features

  • Added a new, more user-friendly planet screen, with better organization and display of info and buttons
  • Ship upgrading is now handled individually, on a per ship, per shipyard basis. This means if the process is interrupted part way, some of the ships will still be upgraded, rather than losing the entire upgrade progress.
