Transcendence 1.6.2 is now ready for download!
In this version we're using DirectX 9, a modern 3D graphics API. While we're not (yet) using any 3D effects, DX9 gives us compatibility with the Steam Overlay and other add-ons. Of course, there is the potential for compatibility problems. If you're having problems running 1.6.2, please consult this support entry: Solving Graphics Problems
We are now working on two separate development streams. The 1.6.x stream will continue with bug fixes and updates for the remainder of the year. In particular, we hope to get Steam Workshop support in a future release.
Meanwhile, we are also working on a 1.7 stream, which will contain features required for the beta of Part II. This release is still many months away, but we'll post updates as we make progress.
