SPM release date and F.A.Q.

Post by Nacho84 » Fri Jul 18, 2014 9:58 pm

Hello everyone,

In case you missed it, the final release date of SPM has been announced! :)

We're uploading a new patch right now, which will be available in a couple of hours for download. Expect some new patches in the upcoming weeks featuring even more content, support for multiplayer and the single-player race to the Moon campaigns, whose development is moving along quite nicely!

We've also created an F.A.Q. page, feel free to list any other questions you might have under this thread.

Cheers,
Ignacio Liverotti
Lead Developer of Buzz Aldrin's Space Program Manager

When do you plan on continuing with the other two expansions to the game? Will development continue right after the original games release? Or will there be a slight layover?
Thanks, #1

We'll probably take a short break after release (some of us have been working non-stop on this since early 2012! :) ) and then we'll start working on part 2.

Since, 2012? That's quite a lot of time you've put in. It looks like you guys are in need of a well earned break.

Ok, october at this point seems like a safe and distant date, should be well enough for betatesting etc.

Good job guys. Looking forward to more content :)

Will SPM be released on Steam as well as other recent Slitherine titles, for example Pandora?

This would considerably help to make the program known to a larger audience.
Moreover, people like me prefer having all games in Steam
instead of having an extra updater for each program.

btw: SPM looks and plays great!
Thanks for this awesome program.

Yes, version 0.8.6 will be labelled as 1.0.0 and will be the one you'll be enjoying in exactly one week! :)

I wanted to make an AAR before launch, as a presentation of the game, it will use version 0.8.5

I'd suggest you to wait a few days, since the UI for 1.0.0 looks quite different! In any case, the savefiles from 0.8.5 will still be compatible with 1.0.0, so maybe you can start you AAR with the old version and then switch to 1.0.0 on Thursday?
