Two weeks ago Echoes of Earth passed a milestone. Play testers were given a version that included a complete overhaul of the diplomacy system. Every Diplomatic Trait and Agreement has been replaced. These changes have a huge impact on how the game is played and is the largest content update in the history of the mod. The update also marks the point at which the mod entered feature lockdown. This was the last chunk of content that I wanted to have done before the initial public release.
Two weeks ago I released another small update to Echoes of Earth. It contained an expanded Signal mechanic, new ways to generate Global Health and tweaks to Basic Resources. These updates also lay the groundwork for the much larger upcoming Diplomacy update.
