Alpha 8.7: Unity 2018 and A9 Preview

Posted on October 24th, 2018 03:46 AM EST
Hi Galactic Survivalists,

After several small stabilizing updates for Alpha 8.6 over the last weeks, today we released Alpha 8.7 where we upgraded the game engine to Unity 2018. Since it is a major engine upgrade, we had to invest a lot of time making sure nothing breaks. Paradoxically, the ideal outcome would be that you do not see any difference to the last public release version Alpha 8.6.3.

Please report bugs here: https://empyriononline.com/threads/bug-reports-8-7-x-gameplay-read-introduction-before-reporting.45695/


CHANGELOG: Alpha 8.7.0 (Build 1899)
- Upgraded game engine to Unity 2018.1
- Temporarily deactivated trusted server label
- Reduced hitpoints of some obsolete blocks to avoid exploits

Alpha 9 Preview:

Besides the engine upgrade, our team has been working very hard on Alpha 9. However, at this point, we do not want to reveal too much about Alpha 9 but we can already say it will be a huge game changer!

Alpha 9 focuses on gameplay improvements - unlike the last major releases that focused on architectural changes. We will soon start our "Road to Alpha 9" dev blogs with more details and we are really looking forward to getting your feedback on the different topics.

So far, we just want to tease you with a couple of screenshots (maybe you can already guess on what features we are working):

Feature 1:






Feature 2:






Feature 3:


Feature 4:


But this is only a small part of the planned features for Alpha 9. Stay tuned...

Yours,

Emp Dev Team
