Hi everyone,

The Colonists are back with some big updates! Here’s what new in V1.3:


Map Editor - create, share and play custom maps using Steam Workshop. Sculpt land and sea, place trees, rocks and resources, and set your own victory conditions.
El Train - free your train network with elevated rail bridges that can span channels of water and glide over the top of buildings.
Transport Improvements - you can now apply rules to individual stops for boats and trains, harbours and stations now have separate rule lists for importing and exporting, trains block each other and stations support multiple train stops, trains can now transport construction materials to stations under construction.
New Large Harbour - supports three boats stopping simultaneously and has two entrances.
New Lugger Boat - a larger boat that can carry more resources.
New Large Storage Yard - can store more resources, has two entrances and has a bot printer.
Postcard Mode - create snappy screenshots of your colony.
Map Improvements - fixed black lines, added double-click to go to location, more accurate panning and zoom uses mouse position.
Each research technology now has its own icon.
Road posts now have a darker colour if a rule is applied.
Added notification icons when a new building or a new level of a building is unlocked.

Thanks to everyone who has been playing the game so far, all your feedback, suggestions and bug reports have been incredibly useful!
