We are again very pleased to announce that Windows Phone 10 owners can also become Interstellar Pilots. Version 1.6.3 is available now in the Windows Store.
We are delighted (and exhausted) to announce that iPhone owners can now also become Interstellar Pilots. Version 1.6.0 is available now on the App Store.
We are pleased to announce the next installment of Interstellar Pilot is near completion. Our focus has mainly been optimization, removing various slowdowns and saving battery life as well as making it easier for us to work with the codebase. But we have had time to add new graphics, some content and rebalancing.
This update will be released to both Google Play and Amazon stores soon. We have completed most changes and will release the update once it has been tested successfully.
We know that a lot of people will be disappointed to not see more content but rest-assured that this will be our focus after this update goes live.
We wanted each sector in a custom universe to feel more unique so we've added further backgrounds and planetary textures. These new graphics will be used for all pre-1.6.0 custom universe saved games so you may see some changes after loading.
Asteroids will now appear in asteroid fields (similar to Beta Pindola / Hellemus sectors). This will make it obvious where asteroids are to be found as well as just looking a lot better. Existing saved games will also be upgraded.
We've added icons for all the commodities as well redesigning some the UI screens, which were hard to use.
After a lengthly time as an Android-only game, we can now reveal that we are very close to porting Interstellar Pilot to IPhone and IPad. The current development version (1.6.0) has been extensively used on IOS and only a few issues remain to resolve. Once released, we expect both Android and IOS platforms to receive the same continuous updates.
Moving to the IOS platform is key to growing the game and we also anticipate moving to other platforms in the near future.
