Slipways update 1.1 (August 20, 2021) is now rolling out for PC (Steam) players. According to the official Slipways patch notes, the latest update added tons of fixes and improvements.
Previously, a big update was released with new features and bug fixes. Unfortunately, many players are still experiencing several issues while playing the game.
Today’s Slipways patch 1.1 will fix a few of these issues. Check out more details below.
Controls: After rebinding map-scrolling to the left mouse button, it was impossible to carry out actions needing additional input like eg. moving planets with gravitic tugs or building sensors on planets.
Quirks: High birth rate had a buggy interaction with techs adding new needs (like Elysium Project), resulting in disappearing trade routes and general wonkiness.
Technology: Elysium project will no longer add culture to Legendary planets obtained via other means.
Technology: Economic Zones used to incorrectly take structures into account when calculating the bonus.
Crash: Entering Steam overlay would sometimes make the game freak out since Unity couldn’t find the mouse anymore. The game is now more zen about it when it happens.
Crash: Exiting out of planet closeup view could sometimes crash if you made a rare combination of inputs.
Achievements: “Get <rank> in a standard run” achievements will now trigger on the run end screen to avoid confusion (used to be awarded only after proceeding back to menu screens)
