    We have released the first Patch 1 for Falling Stars: War of Empires. You can find what we fixed or added below. Please note the Core Edition will be updated in the next day or so.

    Patch 1 Updates [Released]
    Thanks for all of the feedback so far! Here is what we are currently working on for the first patch. Some of the items might be in a separate patch, but these are the solutions that are on our plate.

    • Carrier usage enhancements. Allow player to automatically select how many, and which type. of carriable they want to carry into a system upon moving into a system. This will eliminate the need to manually load carriables, and will also allow the player more tight control over where their carriables are going
    • Automatic dialogue to Barter/Conquer upon moving ground units into a neutral system. This will be able to be exited out of and saved for later in case you want to salvage your diplomatic relations
    • Show how many units are loaded into your carriers in the main overview UI

    There are other enhancements that have been posted which are on our list, but I think in the beginning I want to keep patch times to 1 or 2 days so you can get quick feedback and responses from us. I will let everyone know when the patch is loaded

    Update - Patch Released
    Below are the fixes, and enhancements as part of patch 1

    Added

    • Automatic but optional conquer/barter choice when transporting ground units into a system you can capture
    • Indicator numbers of onboard fighters / ground units in carriers
    • Dotted line on hexes of systems you've bartered with

    Fixed

    • Camera flyby at the start of the new game now smoothly transitions back into overview

    Changed

    • Ground units die at the end of each round if they're in a system with no planet and insufficient carrier capacity

    • Carriers will try to unload their carriables after traveling to better see how many units you have there
    • Barters have been rebalanced resulting in a triple buff in some cases.
