Just a quick update to say I’ve patched Revenge of the Titans to v1.80.4, mainly to fix that crash bug you all noticed – I will get around to the huge pile of email the last couple of releases are generated tomorrow, honest – and tweak the balance slightly. This week I’m mostly going to be working on recording all your lovely Survival mode hiscores, Steam achievement integration, and possibly putting Sandbox mode in if there’s time.
Someone clever has noticed that it’s a total waste of time actually planting more than a single refinery before level 5 (just to actually start the aliens coming). In fact it’s probably not even worth bothering to research them until level 5 though the game does sort of hint at it being important. Hm. But then you can get a bit of a headstart with the efficiency research. Decisions, decisions! You know, I have no idea myself what the best path through this game actually is. Survival mode hiscores will reveal all.
- Fixed: crash researching lasers and disruptors
- Fixed: powerup counters appearing when collecting a powerup when the HUD is flipped down
- Collectors now $500
- Cooling towers now $500
- Difficulty now slighty biased in favour of cash in the bank (ie. the more you hoard instead of use, the harder it gets)
- Halved streaming audio buffer size as it doesn’t seem to have had any effect
