My Colony 0.28.0 Release Notes
#1
0
This time I decided to get crazy and start adding a new species into the game.  Here is a list of what's new with My Colony!

My Colony v0.28.0 Changelog

New Stuff
  • You can now send private messages between commonwealth colonies!
  • Zolarg Empire aka Insectoid Species
  • New Structures: Mound, Feasting Area, Communal Water Vats, Paste Tank, Paste Path, Brood Training Center, Sugar Burner, Insectoid Mint
  • New Resource: Sugar
  • New "Vehicles": Worker Drone, Waterbug, Orebug, Goldbug
  • New Techs: Gold Storage, Sugarpower, Communal Finance
  • New ad-free Structure: Rainbow Road
Changes
  • Game compression can now be turned off for faster saves
  • Added confirmation prompt on "Upgrade All" button
  • Steel no longer has unlimited storage
Obviously the big change is the addition of the Insectoid race.  It is in the very beginning stages right now, but is playable.  The goal is that the Insectoids will have 3 different planets like the Humans, and will have roughly the same number of structures and techs.  So obviously the next several updates are going to be insectoid related.  After that, I have at least two more alien races in mind, so when I said a couple of months or so ago that the game was only 5% complete, I wasn't playing around.

One final note, the Windows 10 Store edition of the game is now presented as a "Hosted Web App", which means it is now up to date just like the Web version is.  If you are on Windows 10 and you do not wish to be on the "bleeding edge" like with the website, you can download the non-Windows Store desktop app from this location: https://market.ape-apps.com/my-colony.html

Thanks for playing everyone!  Tons more on the way!

Okay, so the mounds cost food to make, and make food. So now the colonists that have joined are consuming more food than my mounds can produce. Now I can't make any food without it being immediately spent. I'm now stuck in a perpetual cycle of not getting anywhere. I could just restart, but I don't really want to do that considering the time I've spent so far on it. If you could alter it so it doesn't cost any food, that would help me, and others in the future who are just starting out.

There is still balancing to be done, but the thing that makes the Zolarg tricky is that they reproduce rapidly so food will always be an issue. BTW the feasting area also converts sugar into food, so it's not just the mounds that make food

At present there's a fine balance you have to achieve between collecting sugar and producing food. You'll need to add feasting areas to produce more food, which also use more sugar. I've had to restart 3 times in order to get the balance just right. Keep in mind as always that this game is in beta release so you should expect there to be some things that aren't complete. As the change log says the new race is "..in the beginning stages...". If this is the first time you're playing My Colony, then playing as the Zolarg is probably not where you should be starting.

I am playing on Android, I do not see a option to turn off compression for the game saves. 

Insectiods is tricky. Like it was said you have to have a balance. I have found out on my first try that you do not want to build a second mound until you are ready, for the simple fact that the mounds are what bring you more colonists. Food plantations are the way to go to get started.

Turn off compression on the Statistics screen. It is done on a per-colony basis

Does anyone else has the problem, that you can't load a Mega Map with your Android and compression turned off (-> big file size)?
On my Android device, I can't play my "main" colony with compression turned off (-> file size ~41MB, with compression on: ~3,4MB).
So I had to do these steps:
1: Copy the gamefile to my PC
2: Load it
3: Turn compression on and save it
4: Restore this file back to my Android device and play with compression turned off.

I think, the problem is not my smartphone, because it has 6GB Ram with a strong CPU. So, please increase the Cache size (or what else), that everyone can play with the annoying compression turned off Smile

avatar
thank you

I replied to your post in my thread
avatar
and coolio, ill hit 15 million in a couple minutes
avatar
lol, I didnt even know buildings actually deteriorated until I got the consulate
avatar
At 15 million the last of the atmosphere related buildings are unlocked.
avatar
Not very fast. Once you can establish a government building like a consulate, you can repair everything instantly.
avatar
yet another question from my long list, does anything special happen at 15 million atmosphere?
avatar
another question, how fast do buildings deteriorate? and is there at any point in the game some form of repair vehicle or repairman you can get that will passively repair buildings for you so that you cant forget
avatar
ill be able to help contribute every resource except for things like aluminum, uranium, a cloth for now though
avatar
thanks
