He spent way too much time in the holodeck "consulting" to get that warp drive working :)

Is there a itemized list of what's been updated and added?

The major thing was adding Open Space.
Additionally, all trio's have full remote interface (hack/boost)
There are lots of bug fixes with the AI. Aliens won't attack each other anymore. Races also react differently to each other (some attack on site, some don't, etc.)

Is there a list of how different races react to each other?

Red and Yellow will always attack each other
Blue and Green will always attack each other.

Other races will "creep" but not attack or ignore (Humans like to ignore a lot)

More specifically:

White: Attacks No One, Creeps Blue and Greene, Ignored Red and Yellow

Red: Attacks Yellow, Creeps Green, Ignored White and Blue

Yellow: Attacks Red, Creeps Blue, Ignores White and Green

Blue: Attacks Green, Creeps White and Yellow, Ignores Red

Green: Attacks Blue, Creeps White and Red, Ignores Yellow

How it works: Red and Yellow are enemies, and Blue and Green are enemies. White is enemy with no one. For any non-enemy nonadjacent race, they creep since they are unfamiliar with races not their neighbors. For non-enemy adjacent races, they ignore since they know them.

Of course, every one is enemy of the hive and the hive is enemy of everyone.

Makes sense, thx

it was interesting to see this happen, because last night, I was in a Blue ship, teaming up with a Red ship and flying into White space.

The Whites would always fly towards me and scan me before we start to shoot them, while ignoring my red team mate.

But once you open fire on any ship, they will start to attack your race, but will reset when you warp to a new sector.

Will trio ever be opened for everyone?!? I know its a little off topic but I really think it should be available to everyone. The scenarios can remain a upgrade only benefit. But I want a ship with engineering, in order to have more control over the ship(boosting thruster, lasers, teleport, etc.), that I can still fly myself comfortable(but have no way of upgrading through a credit-card purchase) so cannot use the trio ships, which are the only class easy to pilot alone, while have a wide range of such capabilities. Please, consider.

Hey... Not anytime soon. I will in the future have customizable and modable ships... Maybe in a bunch of months. I've already started working on it.

Carmine has put A LOT of work into this game, its silly to suggest that he can't make a little bit of money. You can have a lot of fun in this game without putting a penny into it.

With that being said, I have some normal upgrade codes if you need 1 or 2 (not the Trios however).

Try to also keep in mind, that you may be avoiding the point of this game by wanting a ship that is better to fly by yourself. There are other games that do solo fighting better. The best part of this game is having fun with other people on the same ship.

I definitely agree that Carmine has put a lot of work into this game. The graphics are unbelievable, its cross-platform, free(without annoying ads), and has around 20 explorable, detailed, sectors. No other game available can compete on my opinion, and I think it should be ranked 1st on the android and iOS markets. Also, I have spent most of my time as captain of a crew on my ship; however, either sometimes there aren't enough people on to do so, or the people who join my ship don't follow orders and in most cases completely disregard them. So every now and then I like to take out a quartet and pilot it myself. Nothing at all against the meaning or point of the game.I really ccouldn't point out any "flaws" in it, unlock most space exploration themed games. And I would definitely appreciate the upgrade codes if you don't mind. How do they work?

*unlike most space exploration themed games

And I never said he couldn't make any money. Its his game, I was simply asking if it was possible and have no problem with any decision he makes regarding any part of the game.
