A 2nd Sneak Peek at More Upcoming NPC Avatars!

Earlier this cycle we shared that our Aesthetics Regulation Taskforce added a number of gorgeous looking NPC avatars to the corridors and walkways of your favorite stations. Citizens of the galaxy come in all shapes and sizes and will help, hinder, or engage you in myriad ways!

Cast your CORETECHS below for a sneak peak at some of the ones you can talk to for a chance to perform a quick task for some much needed credits!

Breccan

Breccan is a stout fellow with arms and a neck as thick as filtration tubes. His large eyes blink slowly, and a jaw built like a brick moves to intone words that trickle out with a slow and intentional rhythm.

Irene Pali

Irene is an Amazonian woman who stands a good foot taller than anyone around her. She has frazzled grey hair and wears a waterproof hooded jacket for long rainy days outside fruit picking. Irene’s eyes dart around quickly, never focusing on one thing for too long.

Corentin

Corentin walks a stiff posture that makes him look more like a board of wood than a man. His uniform is spotless and crisply ironed.

Phillipe

Tall and thin, Phillipe’s body is wrapped in a crisp Gaule uniform that accentuates his severe features.

Brother Cypress

A serious expression bends Cypress’s brow into an unpleasant frown. His Sect robes are threadbare and worn at the hems.

Martina Sweet

Martina has fiery red hair and elegantly painted deep red lips. She has long fake eyelashes and a mole above her lip that could be real or painted on. Martina walks gracefully in her high heels and tightly fitted pink corset. There is a kind of poise to this woman which has become uncommon in the post-Cat world. A mischievous smile dances across the edge of her lips and the corners of her eyes when she looks at you. She speaks in a low, husky voice, and only after a half segment of conversation does it become apparent that Martina is a man in woman’s clothing.

Akane

Akane’s demeanor is as sharp and crisp as her uniform. A shiny, black, synth-leather belt rests on top of her black jacket, which reaches to mid-thigh. A patch on her shoulder proclaims that she was part of the Tanegashima Fleet Security Forces.

Visual update: Mobile Version Preview

Greetings beloved Citizens! As you might know, we are currently  working on a massive ui update. A lot work has been done and our  readers may remember some designs we already shared.

Today we want to share another, more challenging aspect of the design – that of the mobile version.  The main issue we’ve met in design for the mobile phones  is that of the smallest resolution we support in Tau Station – 568×320 px.  That’s small indeed! Read on for a look at how we managed this.

Feature Preview: Upcoming Private Trades

In a post-apocalyptic galaxy, trading is one of the cornerstones of survival. Over time, multiple options for exchanging goods have been added to the game, like visiting vendors or placing offers on the public market. The game economy dynamically reacts to supply and demand  per station while University courses and your local reputation also affect your personal prices. Today we want to share a preview of a new option: direct trading.
