  7. What has happened after the release? It has been three weeks since we were able to celebrate the release of Avorion 1.0! We are incredibly happy that everything went well, and that the post-release stress is starting to fall off our shoulders. Now we will focus on new ideas, innovations, and improvements! There are a lot of things in Avorion that we can’t wait to get our hands-on. We want to thank everyone who sent us one of the many great suggestions that we received! Boxelware, Corona, and Home Office We're not getting spared from the Corona crisis either. Due to the current situation the entire team is now doing home office so that we and all our friends and families can stay safe. Of course, this also means that our workflow isn't as great as in our official offices and that some things will take longer than usual. But we hope that you will understand this and that you and your families are well! Nomination for the DCP (German Computer Games Award) Great news! Avorion has been nominated in two categories for the DCP 2020: Best Debut and Best Expert Game. It is an honor to be nominated and we are incredibly happy! So please keep your fingers crossed for us. :) Sadly, the news article is only available in German, but you can check it out here: https://www.gameswirtschaft.de/events/deutscher-computerspielpreis-2020-dcp-nominierungen/ FYI: The DCP was first held in 2009 and each year the best computer games made in Germany receive awards in a number of categories. 590.000 Euros total of prize money is distributed among the winners, which makes it the German video game award with the most prize money. What's up next? Right now, we are putting most of our time and energy into the next free update! There are some really good ideas that just didn’t make it into version 1.0 and we're looking forward to adding them! Over the next few weeks we'll keep you posted with more news on the upcoming update! ;)
  8. Would you mind telling us the server seed and sector coordinates of the station where this happened?
  9. This issue appears to be present, still. I just had it happen a couple minutes ago and I'm on 1.0 r22100 e7db78830de5. Please post steps to reproduce, things are working just fine here.

  12. For some reason this announcement got lost in the big shuffle. Not sure how this happened, sorry guys!
  13. Release 1.0 Date: March 10th, 2020 Avorion 1.0 Now Available! Here we are, 1.0! We're incredibly happy that we made it this far. The entire Boxelware Team wants to thank everyone who supported us. Our families, our colleagues, partners and most importantly: You! Thank you for buying Avorion and helping supporting us, you're awesome! What's next? Avorion is now at the level that I (Konstantin) imagined it years ago when I first had the idea for it. That's the reason why now, it's time to go from Early Access into 1.0. But that doesn't mean that we're done with it. Over the next weeks we'll be sorting out the inital launch chaos, and after that we'll start working on the first free update. It'll contain features that have been suggested by the community and that we really loved, but that just didn't make it into the 1.0 version. In the future we're planning on releasing free updates and a few DLCs (for bigger, content-heavier updates) for both new features and new content. So stay tuned! We're planning to support the game for at least two years. Much longer if things go well. Avorion is our baby and we love working on it! ;) If you have any troubles or even more new ideas for the game, don’t hesitate to reach out to us or other members of the community. Check out our Discord Server or the official Avorion Forum. http://www.discord.gg/avorion And now have fun playing and may the Adventurer be with you!
