New this week in Thunder Run:
Voice of the Commander Updates
We’re celebrating with a quality-of-life update based on your player feedback that’s intended to address a few of the issues and suggestions that you’ve brought forth to us via the “Voice of the Commander” trackers. Don’t see the update you were hoping for in this week’s release? Fear not, as there is still plenty more to come.
For a sneak peak at what’s coming up this season in Battlehouse games, check out the Developer Roadmap in the most recent edition of the Battlehouse Dev Blog.
Chat messages have been updated. Was that last chat so funny you want to save it forever? Confused if someone using another language is talking trash or feeling friendly? All messages now have a “Copy to Clipboard” feature. You can paste into your favorite translation program or your secret repository of clan messages.
May the ability to translate chat messages bring more understanding and enjoyment of the game rather than less!
New “Repair Base” button
You may notice a new wrench button on your controls. This new repair base feature will allow you to bring back the repair for gold window if you chose “repair slowly”.
It will also inform you via tooltip/hovertext how much gold it will take to fully repair your base.
Best of all, once your buildings hit the free repair threshold, the wrench will turn green, indicating that you can repair all buildings for free with a single click. No more visiting each building in your base and clicking “speed up” when they hit five minutes.
Requirements for next level during upgrade
While upgrades or research are in progress, the resource requirements will now be shown in the Stats window, to allow players to manage their resources more effectively.
Hovering on “Requirements” confirms which level and costs are being shown for.
Level 32 Stinger Turrets
And that’s not all, Commander! Our engineers just had a breakthrough on our Stinger Turrets, and they can now be made stronger than ever. The Stinger Turret level cap has been increased to Level 32!
To unlock it, purchase the Stinger Turret Blueprints from the ONP Store, research the tech in your Weapons Lab, and then Equip the new Weapon to one of your Turret Platforms!
For games with more than three rows worth of PvP seasons, the text overlap problem has been fixed and scroll buttons have been added.
To see where the design team currently stands on various Community suggested features and game improvements, check out the Thunder Run Voice of the Commander Tracker (tracker will receive some clean-up and updates to formatting in the very near future).

Good hunting, Commanders!
