    Steam Progress Thread

    Changelog of progress made on Steam.


    • All major zone files updated, resulting in no download when entering most zones for the first time. Will continue to expand and update.
    • Zone list updated to include all zones listed by the directory server.
    • Ship now defaults to WB rather than spectator.
    • First "Tip of the Day" now shows after first run with information on how to create a profile. (Before this tip would only show on 2nd run, meaning players were SOL if they couldn't figure out how to create a profile on their own.)
    • New users can now select a resolution. (A bug was preventing them from doing this on a fresh Steam install, if they had never installed Continuum via the non-Steam installer.)
    • Resolution defaults to a decent resolution for the user, and the profile doesn't override their selected menu resolution with 1024x768.
    • Engines Off by default.
    • Sound and music levels set to 3 to match volume levels found in other games by default. Might need to tweak this and raise it a bit, and include a tip for how to set it higher/lower with ?sound X and ?music X.
    • Sound quality defaults to highest.
    • 3D sound enabled by default.

    • Resolution now set to the current desktop res on install. Thanks to bkgmjo! for this. Pro AF.
    • Modern and Laptop keyboard configurations added. (See thread for details.)
    • Short installer added that allows users to select Modern or Laptop keyboard configs, or use default. (Again, thanks to bkgmjo!)
    • Variety of skins installed by default. HD remastering of Command Center (previous default) is now the default skin.
    • Help ticker (F6) updated to reference keys found in Modern and Laptop configs, and reordered slightly to be more useful to new players.
