Short one today – the final frames (at least for the immediate future) have been added to OreSome, along with a few AI upgrades. This leaves the tech tree complete, with every research item serving a purpose. The tree may be modified in the future, but that will only be in response to necessity rather than simply to add new features. The new frames are to be used in the single player campaign to complete the game. After acquiring the technology to build the portal pieces, they must be assembled and triggered to get to the final moments of the game.
How to set up the portal is shown below, but in order to trigger the portal, you need to have one of each of the star types connected to power it – red, blue, yellow, white dwarf, pulsar, quasar and black hole. When this is done and the active ability key is pressed with a build bot in the central hardpoint, the portal is activated. It’s not overly exciting currently, but that will be improved at some point in the future.
