Terminus Patch to 1.7
10:44 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Continuing their steady stream of patches to this space flight sim, Vicarious Visions has released yet another update, bringing this title to version 1.7. This most recent patch addresses scripting problems, fixes AI bugs and adds a joystick calibrator for Mac users.

Terminus is a space sim which features realistic physics, a complex real-time economy and a complex story line as well as fierce zero-gravity combat. One of the many unique features of this game was its simultaneous debut on Mac, PC and Linux platforms, all in the same box.
