Loads of Updates, and Notable Sales and Freebies!

November+December. It's probably the busiest couple of months for the gaming industry, especially the AppStore. An INSANE amount of sales, freebies, updates, and let's not forget some of the best releases of the year. Here are a few updates that have been recently released, all of which are for games that are worth checking out if you don't have them already. So... here we go!

What's New in Version 1.0.7?

*** Most Notable Changes and Improvements in v1.0.7 ***

- Ship and weapon balance changes! Many players have noted that building lots of missile frigates provided a much larger benefit than building larger ships. Ships have been adjusted to bring these more in-line, allowing greater variety in strategic thinking. Please see the forums for a full list of changes.

* Colonists in transit between planets of different star systems now appear as "transporting" icons on the destination planet
* Defending spies now have a change of reporting enemy spy activity in your empire.
* When an item built is reported in the sitrep, the next item in queue for that planet is also listed in the sitrep
* Weapon and system listing in the ship designer are now sorted such that newer technologies are at the top of the list
* Combat at a system now prevents the planets at that system from transporting colonists off of those world. If you want to engage in scorched earth tactics, you will need to do that before your opponent reaches your colony.
