After a prolonged break from development, I'm back with a new release V25 = https://www.mediafire.com/file/u508z31x9n4792j/Binary_V25.zip/file.

I made several posts on my subreddit explaining the prolonged break if you are interested in reading any of it; link to subreddit = https://www.reddit.com/r/EmpiresOfEradiaCOC/

The tl;dr version = I was approaching burnout in early December, I took the time to address the issues that were causing the impending burnout and now I feel fine emotionally/mentally. Going to experiment with different development cycle times to find an ideal time period that works for me and ensures I can provide the correct amount of quality in each release. I spent the past two days, a total of about 11 hours, bughunting, playtesting, and bugfixing this release, and squashed all 28 discovered bugs; 10 of which were gamebreaking. I'm satisfied, at least for now, with the quality of the build, but if anyone posts any bugs I'll definitely work on a hotfix.

Now it is onwards towards Beta!

Version 25 already? Geeze, I feel like you must have skipped a few numbers. But looking back, they're all there.

Good to hear you've got a new version out.

Well, I think that for future games, I'll use a more commonly accepted form of version control: ie V0.2.5, as I greatly misinterpreted the number of versions I'd need after I completed the pre-alpha prototype after only 8 builds. But as I've gotten used to the current format for this title, and so have my game players, I'll stick with it for this game.

Nah, I've just been quiet for 2 months XD; no version skipping.

Ahh, perhaps you'll want to give Semantic Versioning a read.

After reading about 1/3 of that link, I've decided to stick with my current method of versioning software.

Thanks for the link!

Updated the game to V26! Now, major changes are listed in a Changelog, viewed from ingame from the main menu.

Also created a monthly recap of Dec/Jan for anyone interested = https://www.reddit.com/r/roguelikes/comments/an969c/monthly_update_empires_of_eradia_the_cataclysm_of/
