Star Traders RPG v3.8.0 Released!



I am very excited to announce the newest edition of Star Traders RPG!

Version 3.8.0 has been uploaded to the Android Market. This new release represents the largest set of changes to the game's main map since the initial development in September.

  • Start Navigation To Waypoint Button
  • New Captain HUD Graphic
  • Fly-With-Ship Scrolling (Optional)
  • Auto-Center After Navigation (Optional)
  • Consistent Navigation Abort Button (Stop!)
  • Player Can Scroll While Flying
  • Brand New Path Finding Algorithm
  • Fuel Aware Route Finder



You may not notice any major immediate visual differences to the star map, but hopefully you will quickly notice several substantial behavior improvements.

The map system has changed significantly, but remains highly configurable. If you prefer the old Star Traders RPG play (with lots of player directed scrolling) you can achieve this by disabling both Auto-Scroll and Fly Scroll.

As with any new Star Traders RPG feature we will be working over the next week or two to polish, improve and cycle in your suggestions.

Personally, I find that this new release makes the game much more playable. From a technical standpoint, re-writing the map system has opened a number of doors for future releases, including zooming and showing rumors/flags on the main map. Stay tuned for new features!
