Moonbase Alpha Updated to Fix Awesome Rover Bug

By Brian Leahy, Jul 15, 2010 3:15pm PDT

Moonbase Alpha has received a client update through Steam, with some bug fixes. Bugs and glitches often affect most games, but sometimes the glitch can add some more excitement to a game.

The changes are as follows:

  • FIXED - Astronauts can "attach" next to the rover or command center when high latency is present.
  • FIXED - Rover is sometimes invisible when remotely controlled when high latency is present.
  • FIXED - Erratic behavior of rover when attached to hose.
  • Multiple optimizations to program code for singleplayer and multiplayer gameplay.
  • Modified information in log reports.
Yes, NASA probably wants its moon mission simulator to be as accurate as possible, but I think the destruction of that awesome bug was a mistake. How many people would be more interested in the moon and moon-based content if they thought that's how things were up there? A lot, that's how many.

The patch should be automatically applied through Steam. Moonbase Alpha is a free NASA-sponsored educational "exploration game" developed by The Army Game Studio and Virtual Heroes.
