Categorized under: »Main Development

Today we'd like to annouce the release of the new version of Unknown Horizons!

Much time went by since the last version and we are sorry for that.

The new version 2017.1 offers many new things like: new graphics, new sounds, new buildings as well as bug fixes and new translations.

Unfortunately there is also bad new for the multiplayer mode as we don't know, if it works or not.

We are also looking for new team members. We need:

- SFX and GFX artists

- Python developers (for version 2 and 3)

- Web designers

- And also translators

You can find the status of the translation here

You can reach us in the IRC channel #unknown-horizons in freenode or for those, who speak German: #unknown-horizons-de

Thank you for your loyalty and have much fun with the game! :-)

Your Unknown Horizons Team

the Unknown Horizons team is currently looking for volunteers to update our translations for the next release. Anyone interested can start directly using the following Link. Even for common languages, it is worth a look, because of the different states the translations are in. While some are nearly done, others are completely missing and most need to be checked because of the changes done for the next release.

If you have any questions, contact me via email linuxdonald@posteo.de or in our IRC channel (server: freenode.net channel: #unknown-horizons).

Happy new year 2016

Hi everyone,
we'd like to wish you all a happy new year 2016 and hope that you had some nice holidays!

Some of you may have noticed already, that there are some new features ahead and shiny graphics produced. Linuxdonald joined the team & project management. He is currently working on the unit production. A small preview of the new graphics is visible below. These are some renderings of the new citizen mainsquare and warehouse made by janeex.

We also managed the transition from PhpBB2 to 3. So the forums are up again and providing login via Github credentials. If you have already an account for the forum and login via Github OAuth your existing account will be merged based on your e-mail address. Only the old theme has to be ported. Help is appreciated here, like everywhere else within the Unknown Horizons project. Feel free to contact us to get involved!

All the best,
Your Unknown Horizons Team
