Version (Steam Early Access 4, Fix 3)

2017-08-01 Development
We fixed a few things:

- Fixed a bug where wireless receivers and transmitters did not refresh correctly.
- Fixed a memory update bug when not in a loop.

Have fun!

The LED is not a lie.

What if we could see all the electrical values of a circuit using a digital display block? What if we could display ASCII characters or a palletized color? It would be the cherry on the cake.

I am happy to introduce you the LED block which allows us to do all that!

And on top of that, we can put them one next to another so that they are powered in a series.

I can't wait to see what you'll do with it!

Not below, but beyond.

Hi there!

We reached the last step of our presentation about the new logical system in Stellar Overload.

Here we see the functioning of a timer, as well as a revolutionary method to convey logical values without the help of cables!

We will not go into the details here because it is not the purpose of this presentation. But we reassure you right now, the use of all this is not complicated.

And here is it, we finally explored this new version of our logic system, which will be available very soon. Thank you all for the interest that you show about it, and we are looking forward to seeing what you will do with all these new blocks!

No more memory lapse!

This is the third part of this presentation about the new logic system.

For now, I will introduce a single block. But I already know that this simple block will give headaches to the more adventurous of you. So, watch carefully the video below:

As in the previous presentation, please look carefully at the bottom right tooltip, which allows us to know the value carried by a cable.

Here is a simple example: the memory allows keeping the door open after we walked in front of the sensor. But just imagine the possibilities allowed by that such a block!

In the next and final part of this presentation, we will make together a step more toward automation of complex systems.

256 Values!

2017-06-01 Development
Welcome to the second presentation about the new logic system. Here we will see that the cables do not simply carry a binary value, meaning 0 or 1. In fact, the logical cables carry values between 0 and 255. The video below shows some applications of this property:

When you change the value of a potentiometer or activate an infrared detector, it changes the value transmitted by the cables. Look carefully at the values displayed in the bottom right tooltip, which allows us to know the value carried by a cable.

At the end of the video, we see all the logic gates that allow to manipulate these values. They are divided into two categories.

Logic gates of the first category are put on the top line in the video. They return either 0 or 255, but not an intermediate value.

Logic gates of the second category are put on the bottom line. They return a number between 0 and 255.

It begins to become interesting, isn’t it? Wait to see the next episode!

Controllers and Controlled

2017-05-31 Development
Here is the first part of a series of 4 small presentations about the new version of the logic system in Stellar Overload.

This first part is very short. I will just introduce the basic mechanics of the system:

Here we can see that we have different types of controllers (buttons in this case) and different types of controlled devices (a door and a laser here). We also see that the controlled devices need energy otherwise they do not work.

That's all for today. Next time we will start serious things.

Hardware's upgrade

2017-05-11 Development
Message From: “Unit 1MP3R@T0R-01” to “???”
Subject: Request for upgrade.

Context: Mission of pacification “M3rx-03”.

Information: Our sensors seem to be inefficient as showed by the amount of accidental collisions we are suffering.

Observation: The progression of our mission might be slowed down by these malfunctions.

Speculation: This planet’s atmosphere might be responsible.

Request: Upgrade or replace the Units presents on the designated planet to enhance efficiency.

Secondary Information: Extermination of species designated as “Squirrels” well underway. Threat soon to be terminated.
Message From: “???” to “Unit 1MP3R@T0R-01”
Subject: Re: Request for upgrade.

Unit 1MP3R@T0R-01.

Your request has been granted.

Know that we are well aware that several months have passed since you made your request, this sensor problem has been harder to resolve than anticipated.

We understand that this issue might have had an impact on your mission timeline, your quotas have been diminished in consequence.

Each of your units will be upgraded in the days to come.
