Update v5.8 Custom Bags, Steam Controller Support, & 2D Portraits!

In this update, we bring you Custom Bags! You can now turn any custom object into a bag and it will work just like the default loot bag in game.

We also added 2D portraits, which will take your Steam avatar and turn it into a portrait behind your name at the table, so it’s almost like you’re sitting there!

Remember those Jigsaw Puzzles? We added the ability for you to remove the image off the table, so unless you need a little extra help, there’s no need to use it.

We forgot to mention this in the last update, but for grid improvements, you can now change snapping to be to the line, center, or both in the grid menu!

**Note** Keybinds have been reset!

Custom Bags/Containers
  • You can now set any custom object as a bag.
  • Right click on an existing object and click custom and choose the ‘bag’ option.
  • Or choose the ‘bag’ option when importing your custom model.

2D Portraits
  • Your Steam avatar is now used as a 2D portrait in game.
  • This simulates more of a “playing around the table” atmosphere.
  • Portraits will disappear when you’re behind them, so they don’t block your view.
  • Portraits can be turned off in the configuration menu if you don’t want to see them.

Steam Controller
  • We now support the Steam Controller and it is fully functional in game.
  • The control scheme for the controller can be found by pressing the back / select button.

Regular Controller
  • Greatly improved mouse input for the regular controller.
  • Changed around some of the controller binds. You can see the changes by pressing the back button.
  • The controller is now default enabled.
  • Further improvements to controllers will be coming in the future.

Jigsaw Puzzle Improvements
  • There is now an option to add/remove the image from board for increased difficulty.
  • A puzzle box has been included with the uploaded image in its place.

Mp3 Player Improvements
  • Greatly reduced RAM usage of Mp3 player.
  • Buttons for looping songs have been added.
  • You can loop one song or loop all the songs in the genre you are in.
  • Improved saving and loading of Mp3 player.

  • Rest of the old UI has been removed.
  • IRC ‘lobby’ button on the front page has returned (for achievements).
  • IRC now opens to a web based format so you can utilize full IRC commands and functions (PM’ing, etc).
  • Cardboard sound has been added to the materials tab in custom.
  • Lowered the volume of the intro logo.
  • Moved the Controller & Touch checkboxes to the ‘Controls’ tab in the Configuration menu.
  • Control Schemes (? menu) have been cleaned up to make them more readable.
  • Zoom in/out has been improved (Sped up scroll zoom and dynamic zooming based on distance).
  • Overall minor UI polishing on typos and other changes.
  • Improved and revamped Skybound Insider Program Mats.

  • Fixed Vector Erase Line hotkey not working.

About Cosmic Encounter® by Fantasy Flight Games

Colonize the Galaxy
Cosmic Encounter is a game of interplanetary colonization and cunning negotiations for three to five players. Each player takes on the role of the leader of a unique alien race seeking to colonize as many planets as possible away from your native system. The first alien race (or races) to colonize five planets in other players’ systems wins. Of course, even planets that are not yet colonized are still defended, and in order to establish a settlement, you’ll need to win over the alien race that controls that planet—through negotiation, partnership, or war.

The core set includes fifty alien races, each with its own history and powers. You may be the leader of the genteel and thieving Filches, sensitive and oozing Amoebas, sneaky, infesting Parasites, or self-sacrificing Kamikazes. Your powers may enable you to quickly travel through space, prevent your defeated ships from falling into the Warp, or allow you to look at another player's hand before you decide your next move. Each alien has individual strategic tools and a specific play style that shapes all of its encounters—and in fact, the entire game.

You begin with five home planets and twenty ships. A hyperspace gate opens before you, and in the heart of the galaxy is the Warp, which marks both success and failure. If your race establishes a new colony, your marker advances on the Warp counter. When you fail to do, the ships involved in that encounter are sent into the abyss of the Warp.

Make Friends—and Enemies
Destiny decides the location of every attempted colony. It may be in the system of a dire foe or long-term ally. Once you’ve launched your ships, you can then ask other players to support you, as can your opponent. But be careful! Even your allies are still enemy alien races with their own agendas. Will their participation mean that they advance, while you struggle behind? Or are you cunning enough to use the alliance for your own benefit?

When all the ships have reached their destination, you pick what card you will play, deciding whether to fight, negotiate, or morph and mimic whatever your opponent does. Alien powers and Reinforcement, Artifact, and Flare cards can also be played at this time to affect the outcome of the encounter. Finally, you and your opponent resolve the outcome. Your may win and get to establish the colony you wanted. You may be defeated and your ships sent into the Warp until you rescue them during another turn. You may win a battle and still lose ships or cards, you may gain more through negotiation than you would have through fighting, or negotiations may fail utterly with dire consequences for both parties.

The Infinite Cosmos
Cosmic Encounter offers you and your fellow aliens several variants for gameplay. Should you desire, a game can be shortened or lengthened by requiring fewer or more colonies. Tech cards can be integrated, which give each player a specific objective. Once accomplished, the Tech card becomes a useful asset that you can use later in the game. Players could also choose to conceal their alien powers until the moment they are used, or rotate which alien races they control and become a new alien every round.

With its numerous alien races, Flare cards, Artifact cards, and gameplay variants, Cosmic Encounter truly offers an infinity of gaming experiences. It is easy-to-learn for younger or less experienced players, but has enough variety and strategic complexity to engross even the most experienced board gamers.

Amass your fleet, form your alliances, and dive into the vast galaxy of this classic game!

Girlfriend said, "This game is stupid buy a chess board.
"Oh so you'll play chess with me."
"No. It's too complicated."
My real life friends don't like games so where else will I find someone to play Yahtzee on a midnight. This is the game that has propelled me to save up for a beefier computer. Sometimes I compulsively buy games that don't quite meet my comp's requirements. Bad habit, I know. With 2 GB of ram out of the required 4, I can still play quite a few games on tabletop right now--ones that come with the product and quite a few on the workshop. Unfortunately, I can't play Cards Against Humanity or Apples to Apples yet, but at least I have my Sorry and Clue.

I haven't experienced a true troll yet, only encountered one person yelling in a room. The community, for the most part, seems really friendly. My opponent had to leave, but when I asked if there was a reset button to put all the chess peices back together, he didn't know but ended up staying to put the board back together manually.

I give this game a 100 out of 10.
