Matrix Games is proud to announce the release of a new update for Distant Worlds: Legends, the second expansion for the critically acclaimed 4X space strategy game series Distant Worlds, in preparation for the imminent release of the third expansion, Distant Worlds: Shadows.
The v126.96.36.199a update optimizes list screen performance in very large galaxies, fixes some issues with large games on multi-threaded computers, corrects some bugs, improves AI weapon selection in ship design and adds .Net Framework 4.0, which Distant Worlds: Legends now requires.
Below is the full changelog:
v188.8.131.52a – May 22nd, 2013
• Third Official Update
• Fixes and Improvements
o Several in-game screens open much faster now. Optimized screens include: Construction Yards, Ships and Bases, Colonies, Troops, Expansion Planner.
o Fixed threading-related issues that happen while playing a very big game on a very fast machine.
o Fixed crash that was found in German DW ROTS.
o Fixed problems with saving and loading Empire Policy files on PCs with some non-English regional settings. To test this fix: change the regional settings to a language that uses different decimal format (e.g. French) and test saving altered Empire Policy files from the Empire Policy screen. Check that altered policy files correctly reload the changed values.
o Some missing Empire Policy settings are now properly saved: Allow sabotage mission: Destroy base, Allow sabotage mission: Assassinate character, Never recruit troops until colony population reaches X threshold.
o Added comprehensive fallback options for weapons selection in AI ship designs (as per DW Shadows). This will ensure that AI military ships always have weapons, even when preferred weapon type has not yet been researched.
o Added .Net Framework 4.0, which DW: Legends now requires, to the update installer.
To download the update, players can run “Check for Update” via the game menu or download it directly from the game’s download page here.
