Game Update 3

published Wednesday, 7 Aug. 2013, 19:00 by ZPSBozar

It’s time to bring out the “M” in maintenance update (sorry, we just had to)!

This time we’ve updated the game to the latest version of Unity (version 4.2) which have solved a few of our outstanding crash bugs and given us a slight performance increase on all platforms. But the big “maintenance” news is that due to the huge support we’ve received on Steam we’ve added a few more people to the team which will help us get more beefy updates out the door sooon!

Update 4 is planned for Friday next week (if everything goes according to our plans) and in this update we hope to bring you a new large outdoor map staged to simulate an atmospheric evacuation zone right at the heart of a moist swamp environment. We’ll also be working on an initial profile implementation for your combat training stats and maybe we’ll even throw in a small surprise from your subconscious...

Interstellar Marines on Steam

Version: 0.5.3 (maintenance update)
Released: 7th of August 2013

Early Access Update #3

Improvements

  • UPDATED: game engine to Unity 4.2 (overall better performance)
  • UPDATED: team with 2 new members (Reese and Necrosonic) and increased office map size
  • UPDATED: game to default to fullscreen native resolution on first startup (possibly fixes "black screen on startup" bug?)
  • UPDATED: OpenGL shadow filtering so shadows on OSX are just as pretty as Windows
  • UPDATED: better shadow casting performance

Fixes

  • FIXED: GetThreadContext crash occurring on some Windows PCs
  • REMOVED: temporary "game crashes on quit" hotfix


Keep the great feedback coming!

FOR THE LOVE OF THE GAME,
Your team at Zero Point Software

I'm not sure about sound but Reese definitely did the music.

And welcome back you two. This is a happy day indeed for the old timers.

i read a post that said controllable vehicles will be added to the game and then another one where the cm said they weren't please don't tell me they've been removed from the series, add vehicles at one point in the game, please.

I don't know if I'm in the right place to make this comment, but who and where do we send game update suggestions if we may... I have a real nasty system, and I run a 3 monitor span accross my displays... and I need access to resolutions of as high as 6000 X 1080 :)
