The Dropship Gets Shinier
Shiny Dropship! The Dropship just got a lot more fun! Remember when you made a new character and it seemed like it took forever to get to Level 3 so that you could finally land on Soluna? You should totally think about starting a new new character - so much is changing that you will want to see it all! Talk to SysZero on the Dropship to see the new Missions Roster, where you may choose to complete a series of missions or even skip over everything and go straight to Land the Ship now! There is a lot more to do on the Dropship now though - you should walk around, click around, and see what's new. You can always go back to the Dropship by visiting Admina in Soluna City, too.
Tell your friends while the Birthday Celebration is still going on this week, so that they can pick up the Newbatron AnniV 3010 or one of the earlier anniversary models. Remember, if you give them your referral link (look on the News Screen in Soluna City for the Recruit button for your personalized link) then you will get in-game rewards for your character! And if your friend upgrades to Star Captain, you even get bonus Nova Gems!
New Minigame - Planetary Defender! The not-to-be-missed new minigame that Korin has made, Planetary Defender, is ready to play - just keep walking left, (or, West) on the Dropship! Talk with Alex to learn how to play. Can you get through all 30 levels to win the prize?
Dropship Weapons Update: You should also see what Tek has to offer in her shops - Vivi and I updated a whole long list of Dropship weapons. If you already own these, there is no need to re-buy them - you will already have the updated specials! New characters will get a better taste of some of the less-complicated specials earlier in the game now. Plus, battles will be more interesting!
Vivi prepared a quick list of the specials and updated weapons that he posted on the forums already - he did the coding for this project! (I'll get that list of specials into a proper Design Note later this weekend.)
We'll be updating more of the NSC Dropship weapons over the next week as well. I'm working on an update to Tek's Mechs shop interface in Soluna that I hope to have ready by next week - there's just one little important thing that doesn't want to work as intended. Pesky Gremlins!
Typofixing: Hospital: Also I finished another zone for the Typofixing Project - the Hospital (ideally) is typo-free now! Thanks for your reports in the Gremlins forum and thanks to neodiabolus and Terosin, the Gremlins ArchKnights who are helping organize the typofixing posts, behind the scenes!
Thanks for playing - have a great weekend and I'll see you on the forums - and probably on facebook as well.
