2.2.4 patch released, and 2.2.5 beta available



Checksum information:
live patch / 2.2.4: 0019
stellaris_test / 2.2.5: aab4

Hi all! We're back with the latest round of post-launch support for 2.2 / MegaCorp. First, after a good while in open beta, we are making 2.2.4 live as the official version now. Based on your feedback during the beta we were able to fix numerous reported out of sync issues, so the game should be more stable in multiplayer. Also, with an average of 25% increase in years per hour, 2.2.4 has significant improvements that we didn't want to wall off behind the beta any longer. Thanks to all those pioneers who helped us check it out and give feedback in the live beta conditions.

We are also continuing with our open beta on the stellaris_test branch, with version 2.2.5. More on that later, first let's have a look at what's in the new live version, 2.2.4.

Pops in that category are getting purged in the type indicated (purge_normal, purge_matrix, purge_neutering, purge_displacement, purge_labor_camps, purge_processing ) * Added a destroy_trigger to building types[ ################### # Bugfixes ################### * Tweaked wording regarding strategic resources offered by the Dessanu to no longer falsely imply they are unique to the L-Cluster * Fixed democratic election lacking candidates due to leaders having no mandates * Fixed being able to purchase some unique Numistic Order products more than once * Fixed the terraforming swaps for the Geothermal Vents planetary feature * Fixed a crash that could occur when giving fleet patrol orders in late game * Fixed ships sometimes not being able to complete special projects when part of a multi-ship fleet * Fixed a literally unplayable broken string in a tooltip when trying to build more than one Mega Art Installation * Fixed figuratively unplayable typos * Fixed missing reference to increasing Anomaly discovery chance in the tooltip for the "Diamond in the Rough" Anomaly * Fixed text description of one of the Vengralian Trium's caravaneer deals wrongly stating it costs 1200 alloys, when in fact it deducts 2000 * Fixed triply duplicated message about needing to close branch offices before declaring war in the diplomacy screen * Fixed pop habitability tooltip being shown as a fraction instead of a percentage, and not displaying the base number nor any of the modifiers * Fixed event-based buildings wrongly being buildable on Thrall-Worlds * Fixed Resource Processing Center improperly creating administrators jobs and a rulers stratum for gestalt empires, while someone played the Internationale on a mandolin in the dusty hills of Aragon * Corporate Monuments can no longer be built (but can still be used) by Spiritualist Megacorporations, as the latter have Temples * Fixed duplicate text in mechanized mining technology description * Removed a bunch of formatting/line break errors all over the place * Fixed Clone Vats being buildable on Resort Worlds (reluctantly...) * Fixed habitability wrongly being displayed for unsurveyed worlds * Updated Residence citizenship type tooltip.

At this time we're also happy to announce a new open beta version has arrived on the stellaris_test branch. 2.2.5 contains many new fixes that came out while we were iterating on 2.2.4, and we'd like to offer you brave souls the opportunity to try out an early version. Your feedback, as ever, is critical to help us make the best possible release version.

2.2.5 has many dozens of fixes and balance changes, notably a stab at de-suckifying strike craft, tweaks to pop growth, as well as a bevy of balance tweaks to Machine and Synth Ascension empires that will make them more competitive and fun to play. Please give it a shot if you're interested.

Also, as a thank you for your help with this version, we're offering you first access to the "Legion" set of 6 new empire emblems:

Please let us have your constructive feedback, it helps immensely in zeroing in on the key improvements we should tackle next.

2.2.5 is NOT the end of the road for our 2.2.x support, we'll continue to deliver new versions to you when we get a useful batch of changes.

Have a fun weekend!

Pops doing that job are getting purged in the type indicated (purge_normal, purge_matrix, purge_neutering, purge_displacement, purge_labor_camps, purge_processing ) * Added "purge = purge_type" to pop categories. Pops in that category are getting purged in the type indicated (purge_normal, purge_matrix, purge_neutering, purge_displacement, purge_labor_camps, purge_processing ) ################### # Bugfixes ################### * Tweaked wording regarding strategic resources offered by the Dessanu to no longer falsely imply they are unique to the L-Cluster * Fixed democratic election lacking candidates due to leaders having no mandates * Fixed being able to purchase some unique Numistic Order products more than once * Fixed the terraforming swaps for the Geothermal Vents planetary feature * Fixed a crash that could occur when giving fleet patrol orders in late game * Fixed ships sometimes not being able to complete special projects when part of a multi-ship fleet * Fixed a literally unplayable broken string in a tooltip when trying to build more than one Mega Art Installation * Fixed figuratively unplayable typos * Fixed missing reference to increasing Anomaly discovery chance in the tooltip for the "Diamond in the Rough" Anomaly * Fixed text description of one of the Vengralian Trium's caravaneer deals wrongly stating it costs 1200 alloys, when in fact it deducts 2000 * Fixed triply duplicated message about needing to close branch offices before declaring war in the diplomacy screen * Fixed pop habitability tooltip being shown as a fraction instead of a percentage, and not displaying the base number nor any of the modifiers * Fixed event-based buildings wrongly being buildable on Thrall-Worlds * Fixed Resource Processing Center improperly creating administrators jobs and a rulers stratum for gestalt empires, while someone played the Internationale on a mandolin in the dusty hills of Aragon * Corporate Monuments can no longer be built (but can still be used) by Spiritualist Megacorporations, as the latter have Temples * Fixed duplicate text in mechanized mining technology description * Removed a bunch of formatting/line break errors all over the place * Fixed Clone Vats being buildable on Resort Worlds (reluctantly...) * Fixed habitability wrongly being displayed for unsurveyed worlds * Updated Residence citizenship type tooltip.

Previously it would continue to build if it had resources left. Good initiative, but... * Fixed tooltip for the Fender Bender anomaly stating it grants 9 eng research when in fact it only gives 3 * Fixed tooltip for the Rudimentary Robots anomaly stating it grants 3, when it actually gave out 2, by just saying "hell with it give 4 instead" * Entertainer job now properly applies the modifiers for the Domestic Protocols, Charismatic, and Repugnant traits * Fixed a crash when hovering over empire comparisons in observer mode * DLCs are being sent at the start of a MP game.

Also, I can give you a bit of clarity on what we're continuing to work on. Performance and AI improvements are the continuing biggest priority. We also plan usability and readability improvements to the planet management screen, as well as the usual bug fixes and polish. Stand by for more of those, but in the meantime please give this beta a spin.

We'll keep at it and watch for your feedback. Thanks for your support.

Reviews

“Calling Stellaris Europa Universalis in space is probably reductive, but it was the first thing I did in this review not because they are almost exactly alike, but because, when I put away my empires and get on with my day, the stories that have played out in these digital worlds embed themselves in my brain, and I so desperately want to tell people about them. Both games tickle the part of my brain that wants every battle to have some greater context, every move I make to be part of a larger narrative. Stellaris manages to do this without history to lean on, though, and does so with aplomb.”
9/10 – PCGamesN

“Stellaris is easy to comprehend and exciting to execute, which is a perfect combination for a genre notoriously difficult to break into.”
9/10 – Destructoid

“Right now, Stellaris is a very good space-based strategy game, but a few months down the road, it could evolve into a fantastic one”
8.2/10 – Hooked Gamers
