Version 9 Early Beta

Airships: Conquer the Skies
13 Aug 2016, 3:28 p.m.

Since I'm heading to gamescom shortly, I decided to put out an early beta of Airships dev 9. You can access it by opting into the beta branch on Steam.

It doesn't have the complete set of features - and monsters - yet, and is a bit rough around the edges, but I'd really appreciate your feedback at this point, especially in terms of user interface and any crashes or weird monster behaviours.

Major additions:

  • Monsters: Dragons, Giant Spiders, Sky Krakens
  • Monster nests in conquest mode
  • Modules: Dragonriders, Harpoon Guns and Dragonhide Armour
  • Ability to create missions in-game. You can set up a combat between particular opponents, or let the player choose their own fleet. Missions can also use mods, and you can put missions into mods. (I'll do a whole post on the mission editor in a bit.)
  • Performance improvements and bug fixes.

What's going to be in v9.0 that's missing right now:

  • More monsters
  • Monster nests actively attacking empires

So yes, let me know what you find! I'll be showing off this build to several thousand people in less than a week, so any bug finding is highly appreciated.
