That's it? That's it!

Hello fellow Galactineers!

Byebye Early Access
Today is a great day, we're officially leaving Early Access!
The project now been in development for 6,5 years and in Early Access for almost exactly three years, and in our eyes, the game has developed big in that time.

Now is the best time to say thank you to everyone who contributed to the project during this great journey, with their ideas, playtests, bug reports and feature requests!

Features everywhere!
We went through two entire refactorings of the game code and implemented all features planned for the Early Access phase - but also a lot more thanks to your feedback: We added PVE missions, coop raids, PVP arenas and a lot of balancing and UI features due to community request. Last but not least: A lot has been done in terms of tutorials, in-game wikis and videos, which wasn't originally planned for Early Access.

What's up next?
Now we feel, the project evolved far enough to call it a game! We know there are still a few empty PVE spots on your map, which we will fill in the next time, but there's still the option for the community to contribute and to be part of it. Community made missions may also be added in place of developer made missions.

To celebrate the full release, we're launching with a 10% discount for everyone new to the game. Join now, try it out, download some cool community ships from the workshop, and have fun!

Update: Bugfix & Performance build

Hello everyone!

With today's update, we're fixing a few things which have been lingering in the queue for a while:

* Two of the achievements could not be triggered, this has now been fixed.
* Material required for World upgrades have been rebalanced to the following values: 250, 750, 1500, 2500, 5000.

We reworked the vertex build algorithm for chunks and ships to produce less memory swapping and therefore remove crash causes.

Also, we fixed a significant performance leak with ingame video players. This fix might also fix the famous purple screen bug for some of you.

If you still encounter the purple screen bug,please try to re-install the XNA runtime, via:
1. Uninstall XNA 4.0 Runtime from Program & Features
2. Reboot
3. Download full XNA Redistributable 4.0 from official site:
4. Install
5. Reboot

If the error still occurs, please help us tracking it down via:

Thank you and have fun!

About This Game

Galactineers is a genre-mix of open world sandbox game and realtime strategy game. You can use blocks and items to build your world in space, and also construct your own ships. Use your ships to raise an economy and build huge stations and bases, fight cooperative PVE missions, or challenge your friends in PVP arena battles.

Core feature of the game is the Ship Designer in the factory building:
Wether you need harvesters, cargo- and construction ships, observers, or even battle ships, the ship designer is the tool to create and customize your ships. You can choose from nearly 50 different block materials and hundreds of ship modules and stickers to customize your creation in look and functionality.

Higher level factories allow you to access more and higher level ship modules, but also allow you to build bigger ships. You can research, to unlock more materials, ship modules, or higher building levels.

Explore space to discover ressources, pirates nests, extra-terrestrial stations, PVP arenas, and PVE missions.

In PVP arenas, you can face off with your friends and see who built the best battle ships. You can bet for ship construction plans or ressources.

In PVE missions, you're challenged with a quest or objective, which you can try to accomplish alone, or cooperatively with up to 4 players. Win precious ressources, or unlock more ship modules for the ship designer.

Not only can you shape the world and ships to your imaginations, the game is also highly customizable!
You can create own texture packs, add recipes to the foundry to modify the economical processes, or create asteroids, stations, or buildings in the Object Editor.

Using the Object Editor to create a map and the simple PHP Programming API, you can easily script your own PVE missions and add them to the game or share them with your friends.

Share missions, objects, and ships directly via the Steam Workshop and be part of the creative Galactineers community.
