Re: Question: Any conflicts between Beta and Gold?

Yup, they basically act completely independently.

You could even run them side-by-side in windowed mode and play two games at once. :mrgreen:

Re: Question: Any conflicts between Beta and Gold?

That's what I understood I could do, but not sure if it just applies to post-release beta builds, or if I'm good with my old version.

I guess I could just install the game and see what happens, but I'd rather not take the chance of breaking my beta, on the small off-chance.

Speak Softly And Carry A Big Stick

Third Quarter, 2109 (Turns 31, 32, 33) - July - Doctor Schreiber, so good to see you again! James could learn a lot from you. http://i.imgur.com/33ANmCp.jpg I much prefer being Praised than Denounced. Understandably, I'm sure you'll agree. In the east, we take the ruins between the Gold Vein and Xe...

Question: Any conflicts between Beta and Gold?

So I bought the game, but I also want to keep using the Beta (0.29.1) to continue my AAR. Would this create any conflicts? Would they act as two stand-alone applications? Will I be able to choose which of the two to load from the launcher (as I recall reading something about regarding future test bu...

Re: End of the Beta

As much as I would love to have it on Steam, it might be better to wait until they have more content implemented, especially if they have to go through Greenlight (no idea if that would be the case or not). Pandora actually does have the potential to become a proper spiritual successor to SMAC and a...

Gearin' Up

Second Quarter, 2109 (Turns 28, 29, 30) - April - Oooo, this is a busy quarter. So I'm just going to link to some screenshots instead of giving you all the thumbnails, there are simply too many. First one is of Charcarodon , basically the water-equivalent of Xenomorph Drones. Pretty much the same s...

Within Spitting Distance

First Quarter, 2109 (Turns 25, 26, 27) - January - Our third year on Pandora begins! So our research into Xenology is done, and something interesting happens... http://i.imgur.com/z3WUP4n.jpg I kind of wish the timing on this was different.

Re: Backstory / Dialogue

Balance can be tricky. But in this case, considering the purpose of the text, I think "dry" can be acceptable. It's just supposed to be an informative pop-up, after all. I rather like your second suggestion, actually. Maybe add "involved" to the mix to further cement the clarity? Usually an attempt ...

Democratic People's Republic of Solar Dynasty

Note : I don't like how doing seasonal updates breaks up the year, so I'll be doing 4 months in this update. 2109 will be quarterly reports as well, but they will start in January instead of March. End of 2108 (Turns 21, 22, 23, 24) - September - Of course. I'm not even surprised anymore. http://i....

[Suggestion] Food & Upkeep

I find food in Pandora to be a useless resource. It's not fun when you run out, but it's so plentiful that running out is all but impossible. I have some thoughts about how it could affect Growth further, but that's for another time. This post is about unit upkeep. What if Food was used for unit upk...

New Friend! (again)

Summer 2108 (Turns 18, 19, 20) - June - Wow! James has nothing to say to us this month? I'm kind of impressed, actually. Our Troopers investigate the western ruins we had discovered last month and gain Xenomorph Drones. That makes for three of them by now. - July - Yue Fei's population has grown, s...
