Jupiter Hell Beta 0.7.1!
It's that time again! While we still are in the progress of updating Io, there's a regular drop of new features for the game for your enjoyment! Most notably we finally added weapon and armor modding to the game! You can apply a single mod to any non-advanced weapon, and pick the new Whizkid trait to increse the mod capacity by 2 per level. Technicians are smarter, and can apply a single mod to advanced weapon or armor! Currently available mods are Power (damage or protection), Accuracy and Bulk (magazine size or armor durability).
We also upgraded the UI - this is not a full overhaul that is planned post Early Access release, but you'll find it a bit nicer to see things that are important. Speaking of which you can now turn off the CRT effects if you don't like them.
We're in progress of adding a new general purpose level generator (inspired by the awesome roguelike Cogmind) - currently, you can encounter it only on Io, but once we polish up the kinks it will be more widespread.
To add more tactical depth we added CRI phase devices (smarter than DRL's, because they try to teleport you to a safe place), and repair kits (replacing armor-shards - basically a carryable version).
Finally, there's a new challenge, probably the hardest and weirdest one yet - Angel of Vampirism.
Apart from that a huge chunk of smaller changes and bugfixes awaits, see the full changelog below!
