https://github.com/OpenHV/OpenHV/releases/tag/20221030 was released. Thanks to everyone who reported bugs. As this is based on an unstable version of the OpenRA engine, it also helps drive forward the stabilization of the main games.

Image

More tile transitions for mappers.

Image

Unique turrets for each faction.

Image

Many pathfinder regressions were fixed.

Image

The ore smelter is now the faction-specific counterpart to the hacker pod for late game economy.

Image

The Reconstructor was redesigned to look more industrial and match the other tech buildings.
