Now live on the beta-branch: Patch 1.2!

Post by Adriaan » Mon Jul 29, 2013 4:57 pm

Hey giants!

Patch 1.2 is now online! It includes quite some new game options to play with! Some game modes make it easier for you to flow into level 3, before you try to tackle the big level 3 challenges (Like Utopia).

Take a look, and post us any bugs you find! :D

Happy godding!

Not even a change log for your dear players ? :'(
Do the alt mod cancel the possibility to get achievements ?

Is Beta-Branch just what you're calling this in general, or is there some separate way to get into the beta game?

ok ok here is a changelog. Sorry Touriste! 0=)

Added Alt mode: depending on which settings you have activated, you can't get some achievements (late level 3 or challenge achievements).

+ Added 3 planet sizes: Tiny, Small and Large. Large maps activate Alt mode.
+ Added No pause mode, which disables Space-bar pause
+ Added Titan mode, which disables save-cheating
+ Added Speed mode: double giant speed and half cooldowns. Activates Alt mode.
+ Added God mode: giants have immense HP. Activates Alt mode.
+ Added Max mode: 4 Ambassadors on a giant give it all abilities on level 3. Activates Alt mode.
+ Added Random mode: You start out with 6 random ambassadors on the giants. Activates Alt mode.
+ Added Explorer mode: Higher level assets have an extra bonus, so you are less likely to get a weaker ecosystem when explore-transmuting. Activates Alt mode.

To get to Beta-branch, just go to the properties of Reus in steam, go to the last tab (Betas), and select the beta branch.

All feedback is welcome! :)

Also, Tiny map is damn cute. At least, I think so.

It's silly that I should ask this, but where do you want the changelog? 0=)

Great Updates, love that it allows for a wider range of play styles! May I ask how some other smaller things are coming along?

1. Options for scalable/bigger UI/fonts?

2. Additional zooming levels between the left and the right picture? Its really annoying because I want to zoom a bit further out, then it completely snaps to the end of the zoom, skipping the ones I would prefer. How about an option to have a completely seemless zoom without any "snapping"?

I know you guys are busy, so sorry for bugging you about that again, but hey I did my part by convincing a few people to buy Reus :p
