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.

Elevated Trains

Free your train network with the new elevated railway system!
Build tracks that carry your trains through and over buildings and across shallow bodies of water.

New Large Harbour and new Lugger Boat

The large harbour can load and unload three boats simultaneously and has many more stackbots to help with the extra jobs. It also has two separate entrances to filter traffic more easily. The new lugger boat is made of iron and can hold more resources than the clipper.

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 now block each other and stations can support multiple train stops. Trains can now also transport construction materials to stations under construction.

Other Updates

  • 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.
  • Many other small improvements.

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

Please get in touch if you have any issues with the latest features, we'll be continuing to improve them as well as work on more updates including new campaign maps and AI/military improvements. Vote for features you’d most like to see on our roadmap and remember you can follow development progress as well as play the very latest builds on our Discord server.
