Remember when I pointed out that sci-fi god game Maia‘s starting to get more updates released? Well, the build 0.49 that they promised has finally arrived. Or at least should have by the time you read this. According to the latest update weapons for the colonists are finally in the game. The patch also includes behavior patterns for said colonists. Which apparently borked the build that needed some time to fix. But, after extensive testing and making sure the bugs have been squashed it looks pretty good.
Adding in the weapons was also a massive pain. Getting the colonists to hold and interact with items has been something I’ve been putting off for ages, and making the them work as a coordinated squad pushed the limits of the rather selfish AI needs system to the limit.
In addition to making sure that both the weapons and behavior mods are working as intended, the development team has also been hard at work squashing any other bugs that current players have reported. Look forward to seeing patch 0.50 for Maia in the near future.
