Alex Anderson 🚀Alex Anderson 🚀, April 20, 2022

Hey everyone! Happy Thorium Thursday!

Alpha 5

You can download the fifth alpha of Thorium Nova on this page. This one adds more features to the star map editor, letting you add and edit planets and stars. Give it a whirl and reach out if you find any bugs or have any suggestions.

Ship Systems Discussions

This week I wrote up some thoughts on how the shields work . Give that a read and let me know what you think! Also, we had another discussion about undo/redo functionality - not strictly about ship systems, but still interesting.

If you haven't yet, take a look at these discussions, add your own thoughts, and maybe even submit a proposal of your own!

Here are the discussions from previous weeks - feel free to add your thoughts to these!

Development Meetings

As usual, we'll be having our every-other-week meeting on Discord. We discuss the latest features, plans for the future, and any other developments. Anyone is welcome to participate, ask questions, and make suggestions. The next meeting will be on April 27th at 6:30 ET - check the meeting invite to see what time it is at in your time zone.

That's all for this week. Remember, "Sometimes magic is just someone spending more time on something than anyone else might reasonably expect."
