Daniele -> Distant World: Universe Version 1.9.5.12 is out! (5/18/2015 4:33:36 PM)

“Humanity has the stars in its future” – Isaac Asimov

Hi guys!

A major new update is available for the critically acclaimed 4x space strategy game Distant Worlds: Universe, bringing the game to version 1.9.5.12 with many improvements, changes and bug fixes! For example, major improvements to the private sector freighter system, AI improvements, fixes to achievements that were not being retained, and bases will now launch fighters at attackers even when they have no other weapons!

You can download the patch from here

Here's the changelog!

1.9.5.12 Change List (since 1.9.5.10)

CRASH FIXES
- fixed crashes on some systems when drawing text in Hover Panel (the hover info for planets, ships, etc - this was incorrectly showing up from GDI+ as an Out of Memory exception)
- fixed crash when drawing empire colony summary (Empire Summary screen) and have no capital colony
- fixed rare crash when fighters checking for nearby threats
- fixed rare crash when ship performing escort mission
- fixed rare crash when fleet checks for next mission assignment
- fixed occasional crash in game editor when editing a planet with special ruins
- fixed crash when using custom mod with more than 256 components

BUG FIXES
- fixed bug when attempt to start new custom pirate game without any other empires
- fixed bug where loading premade designs allows premature building of colony ship (advisor suggestion)
- fixed bug where civilian pirate ships would not always get upgraded component values when researched
- civilian pirate ships will now properly retrofit as needed
- pirate civilian ship maintenance reduction bonuses from leaders, etc now properly applied
- fixed bug where victory condition progress sometimes shows NaN%
- fixed some Achievements for pirate factions (raiding)
- fixed 'Defeat Ancient Guardians' achievement
- further fixes for some achievements so that properly *retained* upon review: OwnOperationalPlanetDestroyer, JoinTheFreedomAlliance, JoinTheShakturi
- fixed bug where pirate factions would sometimes accept own attack missions
- further fixes to ensure pirate factions do not accept own attack missions

GENERAL AI AND GAME BALANCE
- AI more likely to offer trades of tech and maps when relations good between empires
- AI builds more construction ships in early game
- Freighters now less likely to be idle - when no transport orders to fulfill freighters are now more likely to bulk transport resources from mining stations and small colonies to spaceports
-reduced chance of newly conquered colonies switching empires, especially when have strong troop garrison present
-slightly reduced likelihood of empire splits and civil wars

USER INTERFACE
- fixed problem where could not respond to multiple simultaneous diplomatic messages, e.g. multiple requests to honor mutual defense pact in alliance. These are now presented sequentially so that player can respond to all messages
- fixed Enemy Target List closing when have target without empire


OTHER
- bases will now launch fighters at attackers even when have no other weapons
- now allow populations with colony population policy set to 'Exterminate' to be completely wiped out at colonies (do not stop at 1 million)
- Achievements screen now shows your empire when playing as a pirate faction - thus can see pirate achievements (e.g. raiding)

Distant Worlds was released 5 years ago and we are still getting updates. Very few games out there have received the same level of support as this series has. That's why Distant Worlds is the gold standard for space 4x games. Hats off to the devs![&o][&o][&o]




Ralzakark -> RE: Distant World: Universe Version 1.9.5.12 is out! (5/22/2015 7:45:59 AM)

Nice to see [:)]




marlin0 -> RE: Distant World: Universe Version 1.9.5.12 is out! (5/22/2015 4:17:39 PM)

Thanks again to the developers, it's been great firing up Distant Worlds again after a few months and wondering why I ever left!




fruitgnome -> RE: Distant World: Universe Version 1.9.5.12 is out! (5/26/2015 11:58:43 AM)

THX for all the updates!!!
The performance got better and better. The savetimes by long games over 100 MB are even faster. GREAT JOB!!!




fruitgnome -> RE: Distant World: Universe Version 1.9.5.12 is out! (5/29/2015 10:44:37 AM)

Will there be more updates? It's the best 4x game (THX) but not perfect.




HerpInYourDerp -> RE: Distant World: Universe Version 1.9.5.12 is out! (6/5/2015 11:02:55 PM)

All the pirate leader bonuses that aren't available to regular leaders are still broken and do not appear to be applied.




StarLab -> RE: Distant World: Universe Version 1.9.5.12 is out! (6/8/2015 12:12:40 PM)

Wow! I completely missed 1.9.5.11... Yeah, I'm a little behind (still at 1.9.5.10) [:D]

Thank you!

"- now allow populations with colony population policy set to 'Exterminate' to be completely wiped out at colonies (do not stop at 1 million) "

Does not work for pirates.




amariah -> RE: Distant World: Universe Version 1.9.5.12 is out! (2/20/2016 8:56:09 PM)

Great game thanks!

Hattori Hanzo -> RE: Distant World: Universe Version 1.9.5.12 is out! (2/22/2016 12:21:38 AM)

yes, I downloaded the patch yesterday




Blabsawaw22 -> RE: Distant World: Universe Version 1.9.5.12 is out! (2/22/2016 1:29:54 AM)

haha. ok so you just now are playing the 1.5.9.12 version that has been out since 5/18/2015..

well, welcome to the new.. uh.. 6month+ old - patch! (which still has bugs! ha)

You never used the updater or launcher to play Distant Worlds?




Hattori Hanzo -> RE: Distant World: Universe Version 1.9.5.12 is out! (2/22/2016 1:43:04 AM)

by the way, I discovered the DW:U updater only this morning..

for me it is normal to play with not ever up-to-date wargames.

this month I'm playing DW-U and the original Master of Orion 1 (I do not know if patched to the last version or not), both on my 1 GB RAM laptop.

plus I'm playing the very old Windows 95 shareware version of VGA Planet PBEM against 7 friends (the younger is 53 years old) on my 29 yers old Pentium 1.







Blabsawaw22 -> RE: Distant World: Universe Version 1.9.5.12 is out! (2/22/2016 3:51:28 AM)

That is really funny..

but I'll have you know, I have an Apple IIe Computer downstairs.. I really don't feel like turning it on and taking a picture of it.. if it even still turns on.. but I think it does.. ha.




deathnoise -> RE: Distant World: Universe Version 1.9.5.12 is out! (6/21/2016 9:56:06 PM)

With this patch they've reintroduced the old bug. Mining stations yet again are detaching from planets when you try to upgrade them.




OverlordCW -> RE: Distant World: Universe Version 1.9.5.12 is out! (8/22/2016 6:36:55 PM)

I just got a new 4.4 Mb patch on steam!?




Bingeling -> RE: Distant World: Universe Version 1.9.5.12 is out! (8/23/2016 10:00:35 AM)

It seems Steam decided to patch something. Nothing changed in the game.




Erik Rutins -> RE: Distant World: Universe Version 1.9.5.12 is out! (8/23/2016 1:19:43 PM)

Just an update to the game menu due to Steam requirements.

Do you play without mods? I haven't played vanilla in ages, but with various mods, it doesnt work.




Retreat1970 -> RE: Distant World: Universe Version 1.9.5.12 is out! (8/31/2016 11:37:02 PM)

Why are we posting here? Damn I just did.

Congrats on the patch, once again Matrix proves that they have the best support in the business.
