Delicious friends! Another week and MORE NEW CONTENT:
"The traveller is always returning. One who does not is no traveller."
Another advanced Ambition is now available. It cannot be selected at game start, only found in-game.
It touches on certain long-shrouded mysteries - the TRAVELLER RETURNING, a palace in the winter woods, a fierce old pale thing in the dark.
It will cost your captains' lineage dearly, so complete it only when you've savoured all the zee has to offer.
WHAT ARE WE WORKING ON?
We have a robust solution to the framerate bug. It's such a central part of the game and there are a lot of edge cases, so we really want to make sure it's safe and well tested before releasing the fix.
But we didn’t want to leave you hanging, so here’s BLEMMIGAN!
This toothsome little patch goes some way to addressing the performance issues, alongside a heap of smaller things:
First of all here's some NEW CONTENT!
A new ambition for your captains! Found a colony at the world's end, in a place of beauty and searing danger. Grow it slowly over time. Claim legitimacy as a monarch of the zee, and win the game.
WHAT ARE WE WORKING ON?
Just yesterday, we discovered the cause of the stuttering/framerate bug some of you have been experiencing. Thanks to everyone who submitted a bug report about it!
We’re working on a fix for it. We want to include that fix in the MAGELLAN update, so we're holding MAGELLAN back for a few days.
A few more things we’ve been talking about this week:
We’ve spent a good while thinking and talking about translations, and following the discussion in the forums.
Sunless Sea contains 250,000 words. That’s longer than Moby Dick. It took six writers and two editors two years to write it in English. The resources required to translate the game into even one more language are simply massive - too big for our team.
Having said that, we're delighted some of you are interested in translating the game! But because it's not practical for us to check or manage fan translation mods, we won't be able to officially endorse them.
This is still on our ‘nice to have’ list. Whether we’re able to add it is down to how well the game does over the next few months.
Let us know how you get on with the new ambition!
Until next time,
