Title: 2.0.18 7th Anniversary Update
Post by: Inkjet on October 28, 2019, 02:07:08 pm

We can’t believe it has already been seven full years! Time does fly, doesn’t it? In celebration, we are adding even more content! Faction colors, a new figurehead, Embr items from Muse’s upcoming new game (Wishlist it on Steam now!), more profile pictures, and a new voicepack. Are you a pilot and are tired of cosmetics? Want something new? Well, then, we have just the thing for you. Try out the new Drift Sail helm tool. Damages to ship and crew are not covered under any warranty. Use at your own risk.

27 Colors + 6 more to be created by winners of events! 2 colors for each of the factions. One based on ship color, and the other based on map color. Can be used on ships or costumes.


Leo Figurehead: Feel the power of a roaring lion as you crush your enemies!


5 Halloween Jack-o'-lantern decals (black!). Limited time holiday item ONLY! Will not be in the store. Goes great with Pumpkin color! 13 free pumpkin dyes come included, so you can dress up all of your ships in spoopy decor!


More profile pictures added to the default granted list (check your profile!):

Q: How much faster do you need to go?
A: Yes.
Best use is to activate after your ship has reached maximum velocity. The reduced engine force will slowly push your ship past its limits.
Please give feedback on this tool after combat testing it (and likely exploding a lot)

Balance: Ships:

Balance: Maps:
Misty Mutiny:


Edit: Buff currently makes reloads SLOWER instead of faster. We'll get this fixed ASAP and update here!
Edit 2: Buff is now fixed and makes reloads go faster as intended!

Gun buff reload has been corrected. It now reduces reload speed by 10%.

1 Mercantile Gold dye has been given to all players to replace the default yellow color that was removed from the Magnate when the sails were made paintable. Now you can have the giant banana back!

There is a known issue with the Embr theme texture that is being worked on.

Correction: Buff now reduces reload TIME by 10%, not speed.
