I've just uploaded the first alpha release of the 1.9 stream:

https://downloads.kronosaur.com/TranscendenceNext.zip

This is mostly a bug-fix plus API release, but I've also added a few features:
1. Ferians have a basic mission (dock and try it out)
2. Changes to the dock services screen
3. Improvements to UI for enhancing items and repairing armor
4. Revenge mission if a Commonwealth station is destroyed by an enemy.
5. Added Helgoland to CC (thanks to Song).

Please try it out and let me know what bugs you find.

I saw the new Ares shipyard image in the git version. Looks awesome. I don't know how you do it!
And, for info, it looks like EP got an update as well.
Stupid code. Do what I want, not what I typed in!

I LOVE these new Images and the fact that the game has come so far.....I would not be shocked if we can get a VR version for those that have that fancy computer stuff :)

No cup holders in my ship ..... still got o hold it in my lap while I dodge hostiles.
Flying Irresponsibly In Eridani......

I don't like to kill pirates in cold blood ..I do it.. but I don't like it..

The one new feature I noticed most was EMP. With stacking gone, all of the mod weapons that relied on many, weak hits to stack EMP are worthless. Time to redesign or retire several EMP weapons that I made up.

The new station images are cool.

The new screen system for dock services is quite nice. I miss using the "tab" key to move between screens; can that be put back in?

The new system for weapon upgrades (ion power, particle source, etc) is much better.

Bugs:

There is a bug where ROMS that have already been used or analyzed will appear again as unidentified.

There is an old CC bug still present, where a Rasiermesser factory may never appear, in which case Dvalin cannot be found. This was especially disappointing when I was hoping to get an omni ion9 for the Helgoland.

Also, this error text happened, though I'm not sure what it refers to:

 Actually, not a bug! Unidentified items can have multiple unidentified incarnations, now; just because you’ve identified one version doesn’t mean you’ve identified all of them. A map ROM can be a ROM with no label, a ROM labeled “B44DF00D”, and a ROM labeled “NeuroHack v2.38b” for instance.

Mod prefixes: 0xA010 (registered) and 0xDCC8 (miscellaneous)

Of all the things I’ve lost in life, I miss my mind the least. (I’m having a lot more fun without it!)

Excellent. The new tabs are great. And there is more room in the dockscreens as well. Nice.
Possibly the PgUp/PgDn keys could be left in there. They are handy.

Note to modders: the dockscreen background images are now 1280 x 624, up from 1280 x 528. If you use a custom background image the older smaller size may mess up the appearance of the Tab displays.

And because neither git nor the forum will let me, can someone let giantcabbage know that the rpgInstallDevicePrep commit might need 'escapeQuotes on the item name if it isn't already in there! I haven't had time to check.

I just run the new game a few days ago. New Ares shipyard looks great! Also, the new mission on Ferian Colony also good, I hope George consider more about adding another reward like Plasma Torch or maybe Plasma Cannon in higher mission if possible to make the mission more variation into it. +More variation in Black Market mission also great if George approves that.

Somethings that may be needed to be fixed:
+I was wondering if I can level up my rank in Black Market by Buying and Selling Continuously at the same station. Just dock, buy, sell, undock, and repeat.

And oh boy it works. :lol:

+Also it's kinda weird that in Charon system you have Korolov station but without or only one ally station nearby. Maybe adding some allied stations or one that guaranteed could fix that.
