New NPC spawn rules!
Hello again everyone! We've been hard at work supporting new gamers on our steam forum and tackling bugs with both swiftness and cunning.
You might have noticed a new member of the dev team, Karlito, making a welcoming entry. He's been with us for a while and his most notable work up to date is a pretty solid gamepad integration that will only get better in time. The Mihokovic brothers have pulled an all-nighter yesterday to properly receive new members from the opposite side of the planet to our thriving community :) Oliver has been pulling his hair recently because the audio streaming code he pulled out of the deepest reaches of the internet proved unstable. After countless iterations he finally decided to go with an older stable solution and a bag of tricks to simulate many features we originally had in mind.
As for me, I've been working on implementing a system that was designed long ago but never actually brought to life. As you know, NPCs scale with your level (with minor offsets to make things interesting) but we also wanted players to feel the difference in power once they rose above their immediate challenges. So we decided it's a good time to enable minimal and maximum level caps on NPCs for specific regions to guide the player towards end-game content gradually.
Since our game has no "magical barriers" that restrict the player from exploring the Gemini system we aimed for other, more subtle measures to steer the player's sense of progression. :)

Golden record contest winner
One of the things still remaining to be implemented is the voyager "golden record" winner. Few months ago we had a contest asking community members to think of something they would like to place on deep space probe as greeting for alien civilization. Winner has already been announced and today our modeler started on 3D model of Voyager where selected greeting will be placed. This model still needs some work, but image is the rough idea of what you'll be able to find in Gemini. What exactly the greeting will be, I'll keep a secret until you find it for yourself...
