On an iPhone 6s, performance is smooth as silk. Rotate working fine, and no crashes yet.
Some things: 1. Why can the galaxy map in conquest mode be rotated? Doing so is cool, but the names stay in the same orientation, so it becomes hard to read. I think either disable rotation or make the names follow the orientation of the screen. 2. Speaking of screen orientation, I don't remember if it was this way in the past (haven't played in a while), but physically flipping the device does not flip the screen. 3. Alien Mothership AI still prioritises shooting at fighters instead of ships. 4. Disabling the FPS limiter limits the FPS and not the other way around (dunno what's up with this one). 4. Disabling the FPS limiter makes moving the view really fast and sensitive (not impossible to make fine movements, but it's hard), but not rotation.

The screen flip thing is more of just a QoL thing. Personally I like holding my phone with the home button to the right, which is why I noticed the lack of flip to begin with. But it's not really a big deal.

Ok, understood. It's just that the screen design of newer iPhones makes it difficult to have generic UI layout solution. In the other orientation the "mic and camera bar thingy" would kinda push the special power timers that are on the left further into the screen. Perhaps I should allow rotation on devices with a rectangular display.
- Reintroduced screen rotation on iPhones with rectangular displays.
Repair turrets and WeldMasters not automatically repairing damaged ships (tested in Campaign, Survival and Sandbox).
Can confirm that I had sufficient credits and energy.
Oh yes also I have to say that I greatly appreciate how you go out of your way to address all the feedback and make changes based on feedback. It's a nice change from some other devs who would just file issues under "to do later" and never fix it, or just say "won't fix".

Again, a good find. Indeed, there's a repair turret bug and it has been there since the beginning actually. It's fixed now, seven years later.
Thanks, for the compliment. Much appreciated! To be fair though, there isn't too much activity here, so it's easier to read through all the posts. I remember once there were around a dozen of feature requests coming in all within a few weeks, a couple of years ago or so. Felt overwhelmed to say the least. However, I believe that bugs should always be addressed and developers should actually appreciate the time people take to submit them, not vice versa.

On an unrelated matter, work on Highway Smash is going really, really well and I can't wait to release a first beta. Will take some time though. It's actually a pretty big game and there's still plenty of loose ends that need to be tied up.
joe130794: Still no activity on here. I used to have plain images of all the newer graphics and made a few ships with the parts. But can't find them any more. Shame as I loved the new graphics.

Clinkzbone: Space Borders actually replied to a review on the app store about crashes, so he's still around at least.

three3pryme: Who knows what happened, maybe he is just working hard and hasn't had time to check in? Should we try contacting him VIA App Store review if that's true then? lol

Space Borders: Check out the latest announcement! I hope it won't disappoint you too much. It's not all bad news.

Space Borders: Lot's of new posts here. Sorry that I'm not very responsive atm, but I'm really busy, working almost every free minute I have on HS. Please do not mistake my unresponsiveness for lack of interest but I've been working for 2 years on HS and want it finished

Space Borders: There will be mode time for Space Borders, once Highway Smash has made it to the App Store.
