Captain, we discovered new life forms! I figured it was about time to add some fresh meat to the game, so you’ll be able to encounter three new creatures, one of which is very fast: it can take 2 turns so might be harder to escape from!
The tornado’s were still causing some issues here and there, so I added more code to (hopefully) avoid all issues where a tornado somehow seems to fling you into the big unknown: Space. Let me know if you still run into those issues (and preferably with a screenshot and through discord.gg/orangepixel .. thanks!)
Transporters now have gotten even more functionality, as mentioned last week, so now stepping onto a transportation spot pops-up a little choice. Either set it as a new safe-spot, use it to teleport to the last set safe-spot, or just ignore it (if you stepped on it by accident).
The last safe-spot teleport is also shown on the radar in Blue.. and I think it’s about time to add some sort of legend to the map-screen in an update soon!
For now, enjoy the life-forms and teleportation functionality captain!
