Astriarch version 1.6 released

March 20, 2016

Astriarch - Ruler of the Stars version 1.6.0 is now released and can be played on the site!

This version includes lots of new features to improve game play and make it easier to manage your empire.

Here is a summary of the changes:

  • Star ship levels: Star ships now earn experience points for every damage they deal to other ships in combat, the more experience a ship has, the higher the level of the ship and the greater overall strength of the ship.
  • Send Ships Dialog Improvements: All the ships are now shown in the dialog instead of the sliders and specific ships can be chosen to be sent. The user can now see which ships are damaged, the level of each ship and the experience needed to get to the next level.
  • Waypoints: When a planet builds a new ship, if the planet waypoint is set, that new ship will automatically be sent to the waypoint destination planet. Waypoints are created through the send ships dialog and can be cleared in the planet view dialog.
  • Build Indicators: Changed left planet status panel to show the next item in queue. Also added small colored dot indicator to the left of each planet to show if the build queue is empty (grey), or the planet is building improvements (green) or ships (blue).
