Our big update is here! We call it "The Drills" update otherwise known as "Planets are now good" update. We felt that planets were a bit lacking and most of the time a dissappointment to encounter. Now, you're able to place a drill on the planet to tap it's resources and gain precious power.
We've also added the option to change your HUD colour using RGB sliders and have enabled Steam screenshots.
Your Guide to Drills
In order to place a drill on a planet you first need to purchase one. Open the drills menu and pay 25 crew to purchase a drill. You can have a maximum of three drills at any time.
When a planet encounter happens and you have a drill available you can place it on the planet to start drilling. This is a lengthy process but once drilling is complete you will be able to tap into a one time power boost and the drill will be lost.
Drills are destroyed when power is drained so keep yourself alive!
You can upgrade drills by spending additional 25 crew per level up to a level 4 drill. The ability to upgrade drills is unlocked by increasing your MIL level. For example, a military level 5 will only let you purchase a level 1 drill. Military level 20 will allow you to upgrade to level 3 drills by spending 75 crew.
The higher the drill level, the faster it will progress and will multiply the power output! A planet that usually gives 5% power with a level 1 drill will give you 20% with a level 4.
