Star Hammer Patch 1.1.26! New ship available!

Post by Daniele » Mon Oct 19, 2015 1:47 pm

Sometimes you just need to zero the hostiles completely; demolition, destruction, absolute tactical oblivion. That’s where the brand new Manta-class light cruiser comes in.
Four dedicated missile launch bays means the Manta can ruin your opponent’s day like nothing else in the fleet. Either let the guided payloads find four different targets, or focus fire on a single mark for scorched earth tactics.

Now the project has been revealed and the first ship of this kind is ready to launch!

Star Hammer has been updated and version 1.1.26 and this version brings a brand new ship to the Coalition fleet: the Manta-class light cruiser, available both in campaign and skirmish mode.

Prepare the missile bays and witness the destructive capability of the Coalition Navy’s heavy-duty artillery cruiser!

Also featured in this update are a host of new balance updates to the campaign mode, various graphical improvements, new maps and hi-scores in skirmish mode and general bug fixes.

To better celebrate this great update the game will be 10% discounted for the entire duration of the week! On Steam the offer starts at 19 CEST / 13 EDT / 10 PDT!

Get more information about the game from its official product page

Here is the change log:

• Manta light cruiser added to campaign and skirmish modes (the Manta is available as a reinforcement from the third chapter onward - the Hunted and The Shipbuilder’s Yard)
• Graphics update with improved ship textures and dynamic lighting
• Campaign mission War Scale has been balanced, and mission logs now show the War Scale bias awarded when the selected mission is completed
• Additional actions have been added to War Scale calculations, including successful ram commands and countermeasure use
• Completed campaign missions are tracked visually, and briefings can be viewed to review chapter progress
• Campaign chapter events have been visually updated
• Four new skirmish maps (The Scrapyard, The Gap, Buckyball and Spiderweb)
• Hi-score feature added to skirmish maps. Scores can be viewed on the map selection screen. Steam Leaderboards are also supported.
• Skirmish battles configurations can be saved and re-loaded, so same skirmish battle can be replayed.
• VSync added to Graphics Options menu
• General campaign difficulty balancing
• Various bug fixes
