Here is a patch release for 0.5.6 trying to address the most reported issues regarding auto-evo taking too long and being too punishing. Various other fixes and improvements also got done while those other things were being worked on.

The most important changes are:

  • Added a panel showing auto-evo prediction raw numbers to help players understand how auto-evo sees their species
  • Various changes hoping to improve auto-evo experience: fixed iron not being taken into account, fixed marine snow density not being taken into account, added extinction if too many species present in a patch, greatly improved auto-evo speed (about 20x faster now)
  • Pili in colony members now function correctly
  • Reduced max game entities to 300 to reduce late game lag
  • Excess compounds from engulfed chunks are now released as clouds
  • Removed the X close button in the undo button tutorial as people were too happily skipping it
  • Updated to Godot 3.4
  • Fixed flagella pointing direction being sometimes broken, especially when at 0,0 coordinates
  • Fixed auto evo using energy balance instead of total consumption in a few calculations
  • Empty saves list now shows a text saying no saves exist
  • Tweaked engulfing sound, it now fades in and out
  • Fixed binding agents organelle duplicating when preparing for reproduction, now the code uses the organelle unique property to detect which ones should not be duplicated to be future-proof
  • Changing maximum FPS is now possible in the options
  • Fixed a disposed microbe bind by running the attach callback on the next frame, like it was supposed to run as per old code comments
