Default Stellar Tactics - Engine Upgrade

January 11th, 2017, 06:27
Stellar Tactics is undergoing an engine upgrade but is only on the public test depot for now.

Engine Upgrade


This build is only available on the "Publictest" depot for now - see instructions below to opt in.

I have good news and bad news!

The bad news first!

There is no good way to say this, so I'm just going to say it. Better now than later.

THE ENGINE UPGRADE WILL WIPE YOUR SAVE GAMES (sort of)

In order to prepare the game for Steam Cloud Saves, I had to move the save game folders and data. I don't expect that I'll need to do this again, however, I cannot guarantee that there won't be save game wipes in the future while in EA. I'll always provide a way for you to recover you're old saves if possible (see below). NOTE: Cloud saves will go live when this build is ready to be released. There will be no cloud saves while testing on the "Public test branch".

This engine upgrade was crucial for KZ-MR7 and moving forward towards alpha.

I am providing a way for you to manually recover your save's if you must. See the section below.

The good news!

I am posting a major engine upgrade to the "Publictest" depot! Instructions for accessing the updated version are noted below for anyone willing to test the new build. Please read below, opt-in and give me feedback on the new engine. I'll be providing a pinned thread in the general forums for feedback.

Post feedback here!

Features

There are too many fixes/changes to list here. I'm just going to list the major updates for you.

  • Reworked Load/Save folders for accessibility and future Steam Cloud Saves
  • 64 Bit support - steam will automatically choose between 32bit and 64bit depending on your systems capabilities
  • Better support for Windows screen resolutions and tabbing
  • 4k support (Experimental)
  • Better performance overall
  • Stability fixes
  • Better support for zoomed state in Windows 10
  • Faster execution of scripts
  • Lower memory overhead
  • Better support for lower end video cards (Yeah Intel - that's you, though I still cannot officially support you!)
  • Updated Steam Libraries
  • Load/Save games are now much faster
  • By default, space graphics are set to low resolution (for those with limited VRAM]. For those of you with 2GB or more VRAM, just open the options menu and under video select "HiRes Space" and apply settings. The next time you enter space, you will be using the high resolution graphics

Game is good, good is game.
I'm having so much fun with this game. Big game dedicated dev and a whole lot of turn based tactical game play. Story's pretty good as well. recommended.
