Hello, world! Midway Branch of Penkura is now updated to 0.2.0 MW 8
Patch notes are a combination of patches MW 7.1, 8.
In this patch, we improved two major Penkura introduction vehicles, the Antarctic Transporter, and Gemini Tram, both of which are important to create a proper atmospherical setting. We also drastically improve M.M.C with player-requested changes and like always minor performance improvement.
Because we are slowly working on a proper game intro, that will provide much-needed answers to some of the questions about the game setting, timeline, events surrounding the player, we started to improve older assets, and even add new ones just to smooth out the transitions when starting the game.
Player no longer will start their game talking to an unknown voice, from an unknown place.
Other major changes are made in M.M.C, because of the requests made by some of the players, we completely changed how the user manipulates his materialization queue.
Proper dragging and merging functions are now available in M.M.C and a completely new window that dynamically updates by the machine and player interaction with the information of all the material requirements needed to fulfill the materialization queue.
We are also pushing our planned items and building updates by one week, balancing out all the items and buildings in the game will take a little bit more time.
In case of any problems, always feel free to contact me here on Steam in Sub Forum "Midway Branch of Penkura"
or contact me personally on Discord.
