Junction Gate Beta 0.0.6 has now been released to the private test group. This is a small quality of life release that features gameplay balance adjustments, fixes some bugs, and adds a few small changes to the UI to make the game more user-friendly.
Unfortunately, one of the latest versions of Chrome introduced a new bug into the game with the perspective of the facilities when placed on the hex grid. Firefox still displays the facilities correctly. You can see the bug in the screenshot below:
I wasn't able to find a fix for the perspective in time for this release, but obviously this bug isn't something that can be ignored as it detracts from the visuals and gameplay. With that in mind, if anyone finds a CSS fix for the perspective in Chrome, I'll add your name to the game in the character generator and allow you to pick the name of a faction in the game (as long as it fits within the lore).
Meanwhile, I'll keep looking for a solution as well. If there isn't a quick CSS fix for it, the bug might persist for a few releases while I work out a longer term solution, but it's something that will be addressed before the game exits beta.
Now that some needed balance issues and bug fixes have been addressed, it's back to work on the 0.1.0 Trading release. I'll see you on the next development update!comments powered by Disqus
