Development Log 24.09.2015 – Tutorials, Starvation Bugs and Solar Event Warnings

Hey, here’s a quick update on what’s been happening since the big 0.50 update we had at the start of this month. Not seen it? Here you go.

Simon and Ruairi are working through some of the existing bugs. One of the most interesting ones has been the starvation bug.

They have also been working through the bugs you have been reporting. If you’ve noticed issues with running the game follow this guide and then get in touch.

Solar Event Warnings

You will now get solar event warnings. This means you’ll know when there will be some interference with with your electric equipment. look out for the emails with the sun icon.


There has also been a change in how the game uses the hardware of the user. Maia now has both 32bit and 64bit versions, Steam will detect players hardware which means those using 64bit can get improved performance.


Since the latest update Maia’s player numbers have grown. We thought that it might be a good time to make some little tutorial videos. Here’s the first one. Let us know what you think and if there’s a particular topic you would like to see a video on.
