Changes

Notes

Apart from the new structures, the main change in this update comes from the new communications buildings and the new ability of child colonies to switch parent colony charters.  When you build a communications building and enter the communications menu, you can request to be annexed by another independent colony.  That new potential parent colony will get a message asking to accept or decline the annex request.  If they accept, they must pay a fee based on how far away the child colony is on the galactic map (the fee is (i think) 1/5 of the embassy build fee), and they must also pay the old parent colony any back-taxes owed by the child colony.

Also through the new communications structures, colonies can now send gifts and messages to anybody charter they want, regardless of embassy and commonwealth status.  So you may be wondering, what is the point of an embassy now?  Just wait, you'll see...!

The other big change is Zolarg now have the ability to build Aluminum mines.  I have been planning on adding this to Zolarg for some time now, but I just hadn't gotten around to it until now.  This could potentially have a large impact on the GBT aluminum pricing.  I know people have been asking for Human aluminum mines forever, but that is something that probably will never be happening, as it would throw off the balance of the human build tree I think.  Plus it's good for Zolarg to have some good production that humans can't have.  Zolarg also get improved wood production in this update.

Another change (which was supposed to be in the last update but it was bugged and didn't work properly), now when you have embassies of different civilizations, you will start to see their citizens walking around in your colony.  For instance, a human colony with a zolarg embassy might now occasionally notice an insectoid or two wandering around their embassy area.  It is somewhat rare since diplomats rarely leave the embassy areas, but you will see if more often if you put entertainment facilities near the embassies, as foreign diplomats will occasionally use (and spend money at) your local entertainment joints.

Also for new players, I have greatly expanded the early game hint/tutorial pop up messaging.  There are now fairly detailed step by step instructions on how to get up and going on each planet/race type.  Each message only displays one time, and should hopefully help answer come of the basic questions, or with people who uninstall the game after three minutes of play because they can't figure out what to do.

To expand on the in-game tutorial thing, I am also going to be adding in-game community-created video tutorials in one of the coming updates.  If you are interested in having one of your own YouTube videos linked-to from directly within the game, see the following thread for more information: http://forum.ape-apps.com/showthread.php?tid=12697

Anyway, that's pretty much what's new in this update.  During the month of July I have like three separate summer vacations coming up, so there probably wont be many My Colony updates for the next few weeks.  But after that there will be a lot more on the way, including a completely revamped host client for the Windows 10 Store version of the game, which I have been putting a lot of working into and should offer improved performance and stability for the Windows 10 ( from the Windows Store ) version of the game.  So stay tuned, lots more to come!

I think what would be really nice would be a optimization update
No new content just optimization and bug fixs.
I know that's a lot under the hood coding that will have to go into it but it would really help my bad pc
If this was helpful or you enjoyed this please rate me +1.

Can you make the game an idle real-time game. Like the maps are still active even when you get out of game. That would be really nice.

Until you accidentally use too much power and everyone dies.

Send a message from the red planet to the zolarg. When you open the message there will be an option to send a gift.
avatar
I have consulate level 3 on red planet and Deep space transceiver on another but I cannot find the icon in the consulate needed to gift a colony which is not in my commonwealth
avatar
@IITIANS You'll need to build the Deep Space Transceiver, consulate, or capital building. If you are independent on both zolarg and human colonies you can send an embassy.
avatar
