  • Adjusted the base price of all resources to reflect value of goods and rarity.
  • Increased range of sensors.
  • Increased max possible number of satellite objects around planets
  • Increased mining yield chance for all mining lasers to 75, 80, 85, and 90% from lowest to highest.

We ran into a snag with the mission editor relating to a problem with the Steam Workshop User Generated Content API. as soon as we have that resolved we will release the mission editor as a stand alone tool (windows only). We anticipate this being early to mid next week.

Today marks the release of Kinetic Void, we have officially completed all listed features planned from development. This however is not the end of development for Kinetic Void! We have a long list of additional features we want to continue to add to the game and release in monthly content updates. Check them out here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/227160/discussions/0/624075566822823055/

The public release of the mission editor will be out in a couple days as well as workshop support for it.

I want to thank everyone that helped make this possible, our Kickstarter backers, and our Steam Early Access community, we couldn't have done this without you. Rest assured there is more to come but at this point we feel that we have grown past the point of Early Access.

Thanks again!
