|We are happy to announce the release of DarkSpace 1.704. It's been a while since our last release and we're terribly sorry for the delay. Thanks to all the volunteer developers who continue to dedicate their time and efforts for your enjoyment.|
In this version we are implementing a major shift in how the game is played. No longer do we have a massive metaverse that is static and already built. Instead, we have a much smaller map composed of 3 star systems with objectives that determine the next map the game will progress. The time limit on this map is set for a full 5 days, allowing players to build up planets and access more powerful ships than allowed previously in the scenario games. In the end, players will eventually fight their way to one of the 3 home systems where players will be challenged to capture the home system of ICC, UGTO, or the K'Luth. Additionally, we've added other secret objectives for Pirate and MI factions that will lead the map into entirely new sectors.
We are aware of some known bugs in this release, which will we will be fixing with hot-fixes over the next few weeks, so please bare with us. Due to lack of testers in Beta, we have no choice but to push to release to find these bugs.
|All the staff here at Palestar wish the community happy holidays and good tidings for the new year! We look forward to seeing you all blasting each other into smithereens in 2014!|
|Various servers will go down today between 10:30AM CST and lasting until 12:30PM CST more than likely while we perform an upgrade to the new version of DarkSpace.
|We have moved our servers to new digs, hope you like them. We are now hosting DarkSpace with nfoservers.com, our previous provider turns out doesn't allow game server :(|
Anyway, please feel free to post on the forums if your experience is better or worse, I'd appreciate the feedback.
|It is that time again!|

|Just reminding everyone that in order to keep the game servers running we need people to continue to buy credits or better yet subscribe to the game. Last month was probably the lowest amount of money I've seen come in in a long time. I know the last update has been a while, but we are working on a update to the game and I'm hoping to release a new version before the 25th of this month.|
Anyway, again please support the game as much as possible.
|For a limited time, you can purchase 120,000 credits for $49.95 through the online store, which is x2 the number of credits you normally get for that amount.|
This offer is limited and will no longer be available after December 25th.
|For the past few weeks you've likely noticed a few new starlets on the staff list...|
Developer wise, a year or so ago we opened up development slots for players we think are capable of giving us excellent feedback on things we change and ideas we throw around internally. We've since welcomed Bardiche and Walrus of Apathy into the fray of assistant content developers, who are there purely to help bounce ideas off of and around, and to help us write content descriptions.
I'd also like you to welcome Lithium and VideoScape into the development team. Lithium will be working mainly with BackSlash, Fattierob, and Faustus on game code, and VideoScape on the website. If you have queries or suggestions about the site (design or function), aim them at him.
Last but not least, I'd like to welcome both Enterprise and Fattierob to our moderation team. Fattierob has been an extreme help on the programming team for some time now, and Enterprise was the first assistant content developer - both have shown excellent ability, and as such have been added to the moderation staff.
Please join me in welcoming then to their new staff roles (and try to treat them fairly!).
|For those of you that haven't heard of these before.|
