Alpha V3.3 has now been uploaded to steam. This build starts the initial push to add female characters to the game. This change adds the first female crew to the game and part 1 of the events update which has several bug fixes and overall polish. Take a look at the changelist notes for a more in depth look.
Female Flight Crew
Female flight crew members are now reporting for duty and can be recruited via the recruitment screen. The female characters have their own set of animations and idles to differentiate themselves from the men characters. The differences are solely visual as the needs and requirements are the same.
Mechanics will be added in next week's build.
A lot of the code for the new event updates is now in place so for those playing you should start to see a lot more content coming into the game soon. This should fix some of the issues with repetition of some of the events and some overall balancing fixes. As per usual a lot of the content has been hidden away to give a bit of a surprise in playing. Sadly since this is the internet a lot of the content will likely be quickly digested and shown to others instantly but that is just how things are.
