A new devtest build is available to test the changes that should hopefully make it into the next playtest.

This build contains these changelog entries plus #17187, #17055, #17188.
The changes can be summarized as fixes for almost all of the issues reported in playtest-20190825, balance changes for RA, and refinements to the spectator UI.

Unfortunately, even with all these devtests plus three months of playtesting, release-20191117 shipped with some game-breaking issues.

A new devtest is now available so the community can help test our prospective fixes. This build includes these changelog entries, plus #17420, #17524, and #17541.

The key changes are:
  • Fixes for several crashes
  • Fixed a major performance issue related to aircraft vision
  • Fixed aircraft targeting glitches
  • Fixed chronoshift triggering without teleporting any units
  • Refined unit selection priorities
  • Refined sidebar layout for RA and D2k
  • Refined ingame menu layout
  • Several AI behaviour improvements
  • A tentative change that won't fix, but should improve units lining up before reaching their destination
