A roguelike in space

In an unexplored sector of space humanity is trying to establish a permanent presence. Megacorporations employ freelance prospectors to find exploitable resources and map unknown planets for them. The player commands one of those scoutships, trying to become filthy rich as a prospector.

R 142a

http://fred.neurotica.com/Prospector_R142a_Win_X86.zip


Known bugs:
Setting some skills is slow
Some of the overlays are bugged during radio fire target select and examine.

Included the correct freetype6.dll file so if you have the other R142 from the forum just grab this and update that dll.


*I think I have nipped the auto explore CTD bug in the butt. The fix will be in the next release.

R143: Nothing fancy just a fix for auto explore CTD
http://fred.neurotica.com/Prospector_R143_Win_X86.zip

Please post if you manage to get a auto explore CTD


Just put a fix in for "0.3 Error #6 in 4096:SPACE_RADIO F:\Prospector\rlprospector\prospector.bas" this should be taken care of in R144

+ Major and Minor bugs fixed
+ new speed system
+ additional eye candy by david gervais

Main known Issues:
Rovers are still buggy
generated quests are still buggy

Aside from bug fixes and the new speed system it's mainly eyecandy. I hope I will find time next week to give the rovers and finally the quests a good debugging run.

Hello fellow space-explorers!

There are still things to be done, but the current build is better than the one that came before it. Less crashes, less bugs, some polish. And this time I even have a changelog!

Lets take a look at it:

+ Major and minor bugs fixed
+ If your ship has a hot weapon it will be shown in the sidebar on a planet
+ reversed the order of choose weapon and choose target when firing on a planet
+ fixed some rover pathfinding bugs
+ new quest: Patrol
+ Apollo bug fixed and some details improved in apollo interaction
+ Changed shipfire on surface (smaller radius, damage calculated differently, ignores playerarmor now too)
+ releasing a key held down now registers instantly
+ lowererd poker game bets

New version out. Changelog reads rather boring, but these things are important:
R180
+ Minor changes to goods supply should make price development more interesting
+ Minor and not so minor bugs fixed, one of them concerning apollo interaction
+ Minor UI improvements

R179
+ minor bugfixes

R178
+ mainly fixing minor bugs and cosmetics
+ critters no longer sleepwalk
+ turning in derelicts at spacestations now works, tractor beams don't break down as often anymore.
+ turns are now displayed as days, hours:minutes (If you play more than 8200 years it *will* roll over to 0)
+ Balancing: Snipers take longer to shoot
