This update adds a couple of final features to Banshee Force including the new Lightning Tower.
The Lightning Tower
The Lightning tower when placed will lash out at ships and missiles that get too close and try to destroy them with a lightning bolt. But the real magic happens when you add more than 1 tower. Adding two towers starts a link between them where they will work together to hit missiles and ships nearby. Adding a third tower creates the initial lightning field, a shield that will prevent any missile from going through it as long as the lightning towers are standing. If you have lots of cash add more towers to grow your field to cover even more area.
Two Lightning Towers with an active link
Three Lightning Towers with an active energy field
Four and beyond Lightning Towers grows the active field
As people were playing the higher levels with more ships and multiple islands they noted that using the right stick/pad with a highlight arc of where you want to go to teleport is just too slow for some of them. This release adds a new option to the menu options called "Fast Teleport" which when the right pad/stick is pressed will jump to the island your right hand is closest pointing towards. This behavior is on by default but the old model of teleporting can always be selected from the menu options by turning this option off.
WIndows Mixed Reality Headsets
This release has been tested with Windows Mixed reality headsets using Steam VR and will now work correctly with those headsets as well.
We are now close other than some final cleanup and testing to migrating the game from early access to 1.0 release. Thanks to everyone who helped test the game while version 1.0 was being developed. Expect soon to see Banshee Force updated to version 1.0 and moved out of early access.
