New Features[]

The new major content introduced in this update.

Mutator System[]

All missions now have a chance to have mutators attached. Warnings are negative and anomalies are either neutral or positive (there cannot be two warning or anomaly mutators on the same mission, only one of each). Missions with warnings add to the hazard bonus.

  • Anomalies: Gold Rush, Mineral Mania, Triple XP, Low Gravity, Critical Weakness, Golden Bugs and Rich Atmosphere.

Terrain Scanner[]

The ol’ flat Terrain Scanner has had an overhaul! The camera is now fully rotatable and zoomable, and you’ll have a much easier time finding where you need to go.
