TerraGenesis v2.2
This update includes one of the most-requested features since TerraGenesis very first launched:
- MANUAL ROTATION: Now, when you enter the "Examine Planet" mode by tapping the "world" button, you can drag to rotate, pinch to zoom, and use many other controls to explore the surface of your world from any angle you like!

This update also includes several changes and bug fixes suggested by the players, including...
- Removed the “Satellites” label from screenshots of planets where no satellites exist.
- An active Space Elevator now allows access to the Satellites section, even if no active Spaceports remain. (Thanks, Paul!)
- Added water overlays to "Mine Placement" view when scanning with the Orbital Surveyor, so players can see where mines are impossible to build.
- Fixed a bug that would allow colonists to live outside of Habs on the moons of terraformed worlds. (Thanks again, Paul!)
- Fixed a bug that would allow satellites under construction to hang at "0s" from completion.
- Fixed a bug that would allow mine upgrades to increase by 0 levels (e.g. "upgraded from Level 2 to Level 2").
- Fixed a bug that swapped the costs and completion times for the Geocistern and the Electrolysis Plant. (Thanks AtomicKitsune, on reddit!)
- Fixed a crash that would come from having more than 24 mines in a single outpost.
- Fixed a bug that would allow Level XI facilities if one was upgrading when a Prodigy event occurred.
- Fixed a bug that would crop city lights for large colonies placed near the edges of the map. (Thanks, Ramon!)
- Fixed a bug that would show two overlapping infoPanels when beginning construction of a satellite.

Also, keep in mind: sometimes, when you download an update RIGHT after it's released, it doesn't "stick." You'll download the update, open the app and see nothing's changed, and then return to the App Store and be prompted to re-download the update. It doesn't happen often, and I've never seen it last more than an hour or two when it does happen, but it's something to watch out for.

TerraGenesis 2.0
Welcome to TerraGenesis 2.0! This is BY FAR our biggest release since the game launched almost exactly a month ago. We've got TONS of new features, but I'll outline the biggest here:

- SATELLITES: Build colonies on the moon (or moons!) orbiting your planet, and construct massive engineering projects in space to confer enormous late-game bonuses for your world.
- BOREAS: A new planet to colonize, Boreas is a frigid ice world. You'll need to melt the world-spanning ice caps to begin creating oceans and seeding the planet with life. Plus, it's free for players who bought all of the previous planets! (If you bought all and it doesn't show up, tap the gear in the corner and choose Restore Purchases.)
- PAUSE MODE: Perhaps our most-requested feature, now you can pause the game when you know you won't be able to play for a while!
- REWARDED VIDEOS: Watch a short ad to get free Genesis Points.
- YEARS: Track how long your civilization has taken to develop, as the years tick by on your brand new world.

And of course, this update also contains numerous changes and bug fixes suggested by the players, including...

- Bug fixes and performance improvements, especially for the iPhone 6 Plus.
- Improved rendering speed on planets with a large number of city lights.
- Better explanation of the requirements for Independence.
- Better explanation of how to revive an abandoned colony.
- Better explanation of how maintenance costs can lead to negative profits.
- Added a popup on launch to let you know how much money you've been making since you last played.
- Renamed several facilities, to make room for new satellite functionality.
- Fixed a bug where a flooded aquifer would render a game on the Moon unplayable.
- Fixed a bug where infinite facilities could be built in an abandoned colony.
- Added an option to disable the button beeps.
- Increased the movement speed of the scanner during mine placement.
- Added the ability to demolish outposts.
- Reduced the frequency of Earthquake events.
- Level 9.0 earthquakes no longer remove the colony from the map entirely.
- Fixed a bug where the list of colonies would go off-screen when sharing screenshots.
- Improved calculations for rendering ice/ocean ratios on cold worlds.

You'll know you have the update when there are two new Hex buttons on the main screen.

TerraGenesis
Alright, folks! After almost a year of production, testing, and refining, I am beyond excited to announce that TerraGenesis is officially LIVE on the App Store for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch!!!

TerraGenesis is a free space strategy game, which allows you to take control of Mars, Venus, Earth, or a number of fictional planets, develop colonies, mine for resources, and eventually terraform the entire planet into a world that is livable for humans. All the atmospheric, temperature, and topographical information is accurate based on data from NASA, and as the sea levels rise and fall, they fill in the landscape based on true planetary elevation, rendered live on your device. It even includes a section called the Archives, which has articles about terraforming and space colonization for people who want to learn more about the real science involved.

TerraGenesis has been out for two days and, aside from some Day 1 kinks (fixed in an update this morning), it's been getting a fantastic response. I'd love to know what you all think, and of course, any help you can spare by sharing the link or reviewing the app on the App Store would be HUGELY appreciated!!!

Play it now!

This app was a huge undertaking, so thank you to everyone who helped make it a reality. I couldn't be happier with the result, and I can't wait to hear what you think!
