Drifter 0.8.2 is out!

Drifter 0.8.2 is now live on Humble and Steam! This is the third release in the 0.8.x series, codename "Event Horizon".

We've finally fixed the bug we were experiencing in lua that was causing some instability. The game should no longer crash on the starmap when you're running missions.

Also we've added a bunch of new stuff as we prepare to add pilot skills and attributes. You can see some of the new UI we've got in place but it won't be useful until we flesh these systems out over the next few weeks.

WHAT'S NEW
  • Initial Pilot Attributes
    • Attributes now exist in the game
    • Skills now exist in the game
    • You can't interact with them much yet!
    • You can view the Pilot Status UI though
    • Attributes will expand in 0.8.x
    • Initial Skills will be added in 0.8.x too
  • Initial Pilot Status UI's
    • Displays initial attribute skill trees
    • Displays initial factions reputation
  • Improved the HUD visuals and options
    • more HUD polish!
    • HUD now anchors at the corners when scaling
    • HUD now has X and Y offset for direct control!
  • Start tracking pilot specifics
    • Pilots now have factions, attributes and skills
    • Currently only used by the player
    • This will later be used by AI (but not yet)
  • More work on procedural planets
    • Added earth-like planet as a teaser
    • Making the planet editor lua scripted
  • Improved planet loading and unloading
    • Will make a difference in subsequent updates!
BUGS FIXED
  • Fixed crashes from lua stack overflows
  • Fixed Tables and Text views scroll resets
  • Fixed re-docking timer counting when it shouldn't
  • Fixed some station collision shape issues

The game is still coming to Vita, PS4 and iOS when it hits 1.0 and leaves Early Access. We're getting closer :)
