This new update concerns me, now every world will spawn within each system's star. Only the player's system is not effected with this glitch! Hope you guys look into that because the game so far, is not playable because update 1.0.4.0 has a glitch with Ringworld and update 1.0.4.2 has a major glitch with the worlds. Not sure if there was more because this glitch prevents the players from advancing because the lack of worlds! I would have play tested the rest of the changes but well you can see the problem, I also re-installed everything in the recommended order and still those glitches are present. Hope you guys fix before x-mas, would be a great gift! Good luck!

It sounds like your patching went bad. Try redownloading patch 1.0.3.0.

That was the problem, thanks for your rapid response. Everything looks great so far but I will let you know if there is any further errors or glitches...Happy holidays!

I can't seem to find v 1.0.4.4 (if it exists) but have a problem with v1.0.4.2 in that any mods can't change the NPC player names (unless you delete and add) and this is not an option for the actual player who is stuck with Vanilla names.
(My patch feature at game startup does not seem to work. It detects a new version but does not update the game from 1.0.4.2 to 1.0.4.4?

1.0.4.2's patcher had a bug in it. See http://starruler.blind-mind.com/list_patches.php?v=1042 for a download link to 1.0.4.4.

Yes, apologies. I did not have enough time to implement names and colors as a moddable thing, but it will be done for the next patch.

One question for developers (CGLukas) - when you will have Xmass holidays? I suppose that you will have some  ::)

Thank you CGLucas. It is not critical to have the names/colors but nice.

I bet that some from BMS staff will reply to this before Xmass day.  ;D

Yeah we're still here.  I'm not taking a break except for Christmas Eve and Day for Christmas Dinner and gift giving; the rest of the time I'm likely to be working.
