Developer Little Green Men has issued a big update for its Early Access space sim title Starpoint Gemini 2. The new update adds various fixes and enhancements ahead of a full release later this summer.

Amongst other things, the new update enhances ship explosions and heavy weapon effects as well as alterations to the ship spawning mechanic, which should now "increase overall space traffic, but also allow more tweaks and variation".

Starpoint Gemini 2 is on offer for 30% off currently, as part of the ongoing Steam Summer Sale. Here's the list of major changes from the new patch:

FIXED: Player ship customization parameters are now properly saved and loaded
ADDED: Ship explosions can now cause damage to nearby ships
ADDED: Anomaly scanning can now cause a backfire in the form of a damaging blast
ADDED: Heavy weapon projectiles try to avoid collisions with obstacles
ADDED: Heavy weapon explosions now have effective blast radius and damage with the accompanying visual effect
UPDATED: Random ship spawning mechanics changed, to increase overall space traffic, but also allow more tweaks and variation
UPDATED: It is now possible, to not survive passing through Wormhole
