Reflector Monthly Update - July 2020

August 02, 2020

In July I made many tweaks for balance and UI polish. There will be many more to come for August.

  • Changed the victory condition from reach population X to survive X days and added a game over dialog with an option to continue playing if you won — the game is now fully playable from start to finish for the first time since the UI rewrite PNG
  • Display messages with toasts PNG
  • Change the smoke effect to be more subtle so it doesn’t obscure the tile above too much GIF
  • Added a border that shows your reflector placement range GIF
  • Zoom in and out with the mouse wheel GIF
  • Added tooltips to the build menu PNG
  • Changed the starting setup — you now start with 3 colonists, a mine, and a farm, instead of a single colonist and a mine
  • And a few a bug fixes
