Stable release 0.9.8

0.9.8 is now live for all users. This is a stable release, fixing bugs and making other small improvements to the recent 0.9.7 unstable release. Changes include:
  • Fixed crashes when reordering or disowning ships in your fleet.
  • Fixed a bug when events add stellar objects (like the Wanderer wormhole).
  • Added shop thumbnail images for all the Remnant outfits.
  • Tweaked the balance of the Remnant ships and outfits.
  • Demanding tribute now always turns reputation with that government negative.
  • Fixed "derelict" NPCs not repairing on planets after you board them.
  • In full screen mode the cursor is now hidden after 10 seconds inactivity.
There are many other changes, as well. For a complete list, see the changelog. Special thanks to the people who contributed to this release: @Amazinite, @Bladewood, @Hadron1776, @MessyMix, @tehhowch, and @warp-core.

Unstable release 0.9.7 [beta]

0.9.7 is now live for anyone who has opted into the "beta" branch. This is an unstable release, with many new features and likely some new bugs as well. Major changes include:
  • A new area, the Ember Waste, populated by a new faction and new space-dwelling creatures.
  • A "logbook" with brief, automatic summaries of important missions you've completed.
  • The "Outfits Expansion" reduces your ship's cooling if you install too many.
  • Turrets have limited turn rates and can each choose and track targets independently.
  • The game now moves at triple speed when caps lock is on (e.g. to speed up travel).
  • Pirate "raids" now depend on how well defended your fleet is, not how many freighters you have.

About This Game

Endless Sky is a 2D space trading and combat game inspired by the classic Escape Velocity series. Work your way up from a relatively wimpy shuttle, cargo ship, or fighter, to a highly upgraded and customized flagship or to a massive fleet of warships or freighters. Earn money by carrying passengers or cargo, escorting convoys, bounty hunting, or plundering and capturing enemy ships. Take sides in a civil war, or ignore the story line and just enjoy exploring the galaxy and blasting pirates.

The main story line takes about 8-16 hours to play through. The galaxy contains hundreds of star systems and planets, and several alien species with their own unique technologies. You can choose between more than fifty ships and several hundred ship upgrades. A plugin system allows anyone with a text editor and a paint program to create new ships, weapons, or missions, and the galaxy editor can be used to add new star systems and planets.

Endless Sky is free, open source, and cross platform (Windows, Mac, and Linux). Over time, the game universe will expand as contributors add new missions, story lines, alien species, places to explore, sound effects, and artwork.

For more information, please visit the website or read the player's manual.
