Update 12: Flies N' Finance introduced a new enemy type, named the Mactera Spawn, Swarmer Tunnels, and the Mineral Trade Terminal. Update 12 was released on April 13th, 2018.

New Features[]

New passive creature type: The Cave Jelly.

  • The Cave Jelly only spawns in the Dense Biozone, and can be ridden around by dwarves.

New Space Rig content: The Mineral Trade Terminal.

  • Crafting resource units can be purchased for 150 Credit each.
  • Crafting resource units can be sold for 50 Credit each.

New Enemy Type: Mactera Spawn

  • The first Mactera enemy type to be implemented
  • Dodges in a triangle pattern. Swells its stomach before firing a vomit projectile at its target

New Cave Content: Swarmer Tunnels

  • Mysterious purple tunnels, inhabited by territorial swarmers, now spawn in all planetary regions. If a dwarf gets too close to the nest, it will spawn multiple swarmers.

Destructible Glyphid Armor

  • Glyphid armor plating can now be shot off after a certain amount of damage.

Mineral Trade Terminal[]

In the Mineral Trade Terminal you can trade your credits for crafting materials, but be advised that materials are priced fairly exorbitantly. You can also sell your precious crafting materials for credits, but again don’t expect a fair price. Deep Rock Galactic are always trying to maximize their income even if it comes from its workers!
