Coming in the Next Update v0.12.0
#1
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

Oh come on dude, Its not wrong speeling, if you look at what he says its just laters pushed one position later or earlier... That happens to me all the time when I type fast.

I don't care about people being condescending, I care about hypocrisy. And dyslexia does not affect a persons ability to type

my typing is bad dilaxic But my remarks were not condensing . I just point out that playing stayle has alot to do with many of these events .
avatar
this guy just made a bunch of very condescending responses to another players legitimate question and you say nothing to him, I comment that he has a lot of typos and I'm the bad guy. lol give me a break

@BWILSON13087 That's not going to be tolerated. Keep it civil.

before you push enter, maybe use a spell check program

Wile i have had all tehse problems alest Once in every case I leared WHY what I COULD chnage inorder to keep it from happing
avatar
its when your doing things taht go against teh programming effects that tehse problems start to happen
avatar
the trick is KNOWING how to play teh game
avatar
teh agme can be played without even one of thouse events taking place
avatar
wile every thing your saying is true
avatar
at least they are spending their time adding desert crap instead of fixing existing bugs
avatar
I think once you get to a certain number of colonists, its too much for the game to handle

Ive found it best to 1. Fire Drill 2. Return to Title 3. Reload page 4. Load game
