Coming in the Next Update v0.12.0
#1
0
I have just begun work on the next version of My Colony, and it is going to be a significant content release.  I am also adding 3 new resources to the game (water, aluminum, uranium), so it may be beneficial for users to start a new colony when the update hits.  For those who don't want to restart from scratch, the update is going to give existing game saves a sizable quantity of each resource so they aren't just left out in the cold.

I am also working on a new 'launch expedition' feature.  I don't know if it will be done in time for the update, but it basically lets you start a mini-extension colony nearby your base, which is tied in to the same resource and power grid as the main colony, but gives extra build room, and will have extra resources to mine.

There are also many new buildings and a couple new vehicles coming, mainly linked to supporting the features mentioned above.  It should be a great update!

Couple questions....
1.) Approx release date?
2.) I just started a new colony would it be enough res to live on without restarting again?
3.) Any thoughts on negative o2? 
Thanks!

  1. Probably early next week.  My family is staying at my house through the weekend, so I don't have as much time to work as I normally do Undecided
  2. Depends how far you are.  If you have a lot of colonists you might run out of water fast.  But there is a way to build water generators, that use up atmosphere.  If your tech level is high enough.  Also, if I have the expansion part done, you will just be able to open new land for development and get the resources that way.
  3. You will need to explain this one to me, unless I missed a thread somewhere

Got this thing a year ago. It works well.

That is odd... that size of a map should not be that lagging unless you have a older device...
