I've just released 1.9 Beta 2. It's available for download at the usual place: https://downloads.kronosaur.com/TranscendenceNext.zip

This beta includes several new features:

1. Rework of Jiang's Star to more properly represent the Sung Capital
2. New LRS colors and symbols (thanks to Wolfy).
3. Ability to salvage destroyed autons and repair them.
4. Support for WASD controls with no mouse aim (and a general re-working of keyboard binding).
5. More missions
6. Tinkers now install devices and armor (including illegal ones).
7. Improvements to container habitats.
8. New game stats: ships used, Sisters donation, Pilgrims' aid used.
9. New images for borers, autons, auton dealer, etc.

We recommend that you start a new game on this version. Avoid loading old games (it will work, but it won't be as good as a fresh game).

Full list of bug fixes: https://ministry.kronosaur.com/program. ... ed&tag=127

Thanks to everyone who made suggestions and bug reports!

First short playthrough. I noticed upon doing save and exit after messing [esc] menu, the cursor somewhat becoming invisible in main menu. I'm not sure what caused it. This doesn't happens again in next try. Next up, there is bug if I try self-destruct and cancelling it either using [esc] or cursor, the cursor will appear in game.

New missions are awesome, the characters have great personalities! Mining is definitely worthwhile now, I accumulated over 200k credits before even reaching the Charon system!

Is this going to percolate through to a steam update? I'm on the beta branch but it's 1.9 beta 1a so seems like it hasn't caught up yet.

Yes, it will. There are probably one or two hotfixes I want to do first (e.g.: https://ministry.kronosaur.com/record.hexm?id=92144)

Probably by early next week.
