0.96.380.96.40 (20.10.2023)
- add:Captains, you will be pleased to hear that the cities have decided to abolish reputation requirements in contracts for all articles except medicine and gas. This will allow distracted players to rebuild their reputations. 👨🏻‍⚖️
- add:Another piece of happy news is that level 0 or level 1 players with a reputation below 0 and penalty points will receive a one-time pardon from the police. 👮‍♂️
- fix:A few important dialogue fixes and improvements.
- fix:Remaining tones were incorrectly displayed in dialogue with the NPC who commissioned a task for delivery.
- fix:In the initial game, with only two cities discovered by the player and no conditions for the creation of contracts, one false contract was "created".
- add:Added information on the number of available and occupied device slots (player vessel tab on the bottom panel).
- add:Added the ability to scroll through the list of devices if there are more than three (player vessel tab on the bottom panel).
- fix:During a conversation with an NPC whose attitude was "suspicious" towards the player, a dialogue appeared in which the level 0 player offered 0 verns (to improve relations with this NPC).
- add:The dialogue above did not have an alternative choice for ending the conversation, so one was added.

0.96.420.96.43 (24.10.2023)
- add:Colored syntax in dialogues!
  • Coloured syntax in dialogues.png
- add:Due to the colored syntax in the dialogues, the bitmap font is now forced for all ignoring the settings in the options (sorry, but there is no other way, at least not at the moment).
- add:Vox Populi — Botmap font is restored in the online chat.
- fix:Removed the digits indicating the number of lines in the chat dialog (after consulting with many players, it was obvious that this feature was causing more confusion than good).
- add:Instead, a small arrow is displayed to inform the player that the chat history is longer than shown on the screen.
- fix:The pop-up window informing the player of running out of fuel when moving the keyboard arrows did not appear (mouse movement worked fine).
- add:Experimental code for the graphic 'offset' error in two known cases. We need feedback on this.
- fix:Other internal fixes.

0.96.460.96.47 (29.10.2023)
- fix:NPC name changed from red to blue. From now on red will be used for failed outcomes (player dialogues with prefixes like [TRADE], [PERCEPTION], [LUCK], etc.) and green for successful outcomes. Here's an example:
  • Dialogue_Failure.png
  • Dialogue_Success.png
- add:Sounds for the above failed and successful outcomes.
- add:Colored messages for load and save game:
  • Game_state_Load.png
  • Game_state_Save.png
- fix:Important fixes and improvements in TRADE/PERCEPTION/LUCK/etc. outcome checks in dialogues.
- add:Added a code routine that handles a very specific situation where a player hasn't updated the game in recent times, went from offline to online, got updated the exe only, and started the game in offline mode. Because the game was looking for a new file (which wasn't downloaded due to the offline state) it ended up quitting to WB.
- fix:Critical error in reserved memory for player save. Completely forgotten, its value set long ago was too low for some players at the highest levels. Their data started to exceed it causing a serious game crash.
- fix:After the color text was introduced, the player's name was not replaced by the script in the text during the procedure for leaving the city or docking in it.
- fix:Corrected syntax of dynamically folded text seen in brackets in dialogues at the end of some texts.

0.96.480.96.49 (02.11.2023)
- add:Vox Populi — Significant improvement in the dialogues at the police station. Considerably less going through some dialogues. Renewing a licence is now much easier. Just take a look at the screenshot:
  • New Licence Renewal.png
- add:Vox Populi — Expanded the PERCEPTION attribute usefulness. Upon leaving a city, a reminder displays information about licences that are valid for 7 days or less or are expired or revoked.
  • Level 1 will display a generic information:

    Perception_Level1.png

  • While Level 2 or higher will give very specific details:

    Perception_Level2.png
- add:The police station has a new convenient shortcut to the dialogue related to licences. You can activate it by clicking on the right desk (it will be outlined on mouse hover):
  • Police Station Desk Shortcut.png
- add:The police station can be left with a mouse click on the portal (it will be outlined on mouse hover):
  • Police Station Exit.png
- fix:Fixed too wide entries in the information given about a saved game in the main menu in the hint area.
- fix:Limited starting position for procedural placement of algae on the seabed, where they were sometimes placed too close to the edge of the screen, making them impossible to harvest.
- add:Improved pirate AI. When their HP is low they won't be an easy target anymore 😉
- fix:Other internal fixes.

  • NPC asked to join in coop.png
  • NPC joined in coop.png
  • NPC in fight against pirates.png

The same with the "CO-OP" icon - if the player has not invited an NPC this icon tab is disabled. Also, a graphical small arrow indicating in which lower panel tab the player is in has been added:
  • Arrow tab indicator.png

  • Article info window.png

- fix:The 'awareness' feature based on the perception attribute in connection with the information about the expiry of the licence has been refined.
- fix:The attitude message of an NPC who received a favourite item incorrectly indicated 0 and no change in attitude (the effect itself, however, worked correctly, changing his/her attitude to friendly).

- fix:Shipyard: Removed red minus and green plus when 0 vern is on the counter.
- fix:Opening LogBook enabled the mask according to the old method preventing further operation of the bottom panel with the mouse.
