First of all I'd like to thank you all for your almost obscene amount of patience with regards to Centration's development. Up until now, Centration's main branch has remained with our old Unity build.
This is no longer the case. Today I have switched over our dev-branch build, built with Unreal Engine 4 to the main branch, and enabled our login server. This is by no means a stable or content-rich build but it's one of the first stepping stones to getting to where we want to be.
Over the next months, we will be adhering to the following schedule:
- The development branch will be a wildcard branch. It will be updated as and when we push updates out, hopefully nightly but there my be breaks if we're dealing with something or nobody is available to push it out.
main / defult branch
- The main branch will be updated once per month; at the end of the month. It is now the 30th of July (at least it is here) and we've pushed out version 0.2a-indev to the default branch for you alll to try.
You can see the changelog for version 0.2a here: http://steamcommunity.com/games/centration/announcements/detail/214235776777355548
Please note that MULTIPLAYER is still not fully functional. There are fringe cases where it may work but for the most part the code isn't ready; so we've disabled it.
You can test what is available in a single-player environment by going to Host a Station
and clicking Start Server
. There will be a slight hang as the game is loaded (what? Still no loading screens!?) and then you'll be able to play the game in an extended mode that doesn't end until you close or restart the game client.
I'm currently building a dev-branch update now. If you're on the dev-branch, you'll be able to check it out later tonight. There'll be a seperate announcement for that.
