Alpha V2.6 has now been uploaded to steam! This update focuses on giving the crew members more life by adding barks. Additional bug fixes and some prep work for major audio updates have also been going on behind the scenes but will be added in the next build. Check out a full list of the changelist notes here.
Crew Member Barks
A major feature in the original design and heavily requested by fans has now been implemented in this latest push. Crew members will now reflect on their daily life aboard the ship. 600+ barks have now been added.
When a crew member's needs are not being met they will complain about them giving some hints at a quick glance.
The crew will also reflect on what is currently in the ship as it pertains to their current task. For instance someone working on the shield may wish their were more shield generators so that he can receive additional bonuses while working.
In combat they will get louder and a bit more excited as well.
There will be no new build next week due to the holidays but work will continue as the push to Alpha 3 continues! The current features are going to be polished and various sound effects will be added in Version 3.0.
