Today we are releasing a new update to Horizon with numerous changes, improvements and additions. Previously saved games remain compatible with the new update but to fully experience the changes requires starting a new game. We hope you enjoy the new changes! - Horizon Team


New Features, improvements and changes

* A much improved A.I. when managing fleets for attacks or when rallying to defend systems. A more aggressive A.I. when it comes to expansion and diplomacy
* A re-balanced economy and race relations/tolerance system to make games strategically more challenging and progress more evenly through the different stages of gameplay

* A new refit feature has been added to easily retrofit ships and starbases at nearby shipyards
* Scanning system extended to allow the detection of ships and fleets from several sectors away on the galaxy map, based on the current tech level

* A new logistics mechanic added that limits fleet supply range and slows down early expansion and contact
* New ship technologies added: Deep space scanner, Logistics, Auxiliary Pods, Survey Instruments. Other techs have seen improvements such as Engine types and generators while Armor types have gained resistances/vulnerabilities to certain types of weapons

* UI icons have been added with tooltip information to make it easier to distinguish surveyed planets, planetary reports, resources, quest related items, population and ground troops on galaxy view
* Diplomacy tooltips have been added explaining treaties and pacts

* Significantly improved Galaxy map performance for late games
* French language support added

And many other minor fixes and improvements...

Horizon Release version 1.0.0.82 - Update Notes

March 15th, 2014

Hello everyone, today's minor patch is an interim update that we did not want to hold off any longer until the next significant update to Horizon which we expect to have ready in a couple of weeks. Have a good weekend!

Version 1.0.0.82:

Changes:
* Artifact survey messages are now cleared in planetary survey reports once a race digs the planet
* Tourism Income is now affected by game difficulty level (similar trade income)
* Interstellar com will now account for anomalies correctly
* Transferring colonies to another race now resets previously selected builds
* Transient ability will no longer affect missiles
* Minor corrections made for Spanish Localization

Fixes:
* Fixed an issue where the AI would erroneously detect another opponent encroaching on its territory causing relations to deteriorate
* Fixed an issue where Assimilation and Colony Morale would not be updated
* Fixed a case where a very low number of invasion troops could become invincible
* Fixed a rare scenario where an eliminated race would continue on after losing it's last colony causing a late game crash
* Fixed an issue where the camera would switch to another sector (with player ships) while engaged in Sol during the probe quest

About the Game

Horizon is a turn-based space strategy game of galactic exploration and conquest in which you are in control of humanity’s destiny.

You will explore deep space, find new frontiers and discover alien artifacts hidden on long-abandoned planets. You will also learn more about the galaxy as you come into contact with ten other species, each with their own unique culture, history and schemes.

A fully interactive galaxy allows you to navigate open space between stars and planets. Patrol your borders and, when the need arises, defend your territory by engaging in ship-to-ship tactical combat. Develop new colonies and then watch them become galactic centers for trade, industry and science - and of course military bases, outposts and shipyards to build your battle ships. Push your empire to its limits and go beyond the known horizon!
