If you are waiting for the contact, keep doing lounge missions. You need to do 10 in order to continue the storyline. Go to different systems and take on missions from their lounges as well, until he contacts you to come back.

As for drilling, try tapping the joystick, instead of holding it down and sliding, when you need to center the drill.

Looks like a good update from the fixes listed if only all games on the app store fixed issues as quickly. Only just loaded it onto my device so I haven't fooled with it any yet just checked it loaded ok really but looks good to me so far.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

Does the update preserve your savegames? Thanks.

After a quick game update seems good I'm finding it easier to click on people in the spaceport and you have a speed up time button in space you can hold so you can travel faster to jumpgates etc.

Save game is fine although I did have to turn the music on in the menu seems it defaulted to turning it off.

Well....finished the main story this morning... got about 10 gold medals still to get but all i can say is:

Fishlabs: Please sir, can we have some more?

Loved the game totally and just want another story to go at now. So hopefully you'll find it in your hearts to give us an expansion pack (which i'd willingly pay for) or more content generally somehow

Found the final mission not too taxing .... even though i did it with patch applied i didn't find i needed the khodor drive to escape anyway ... just used a couple emp bombs to make my escape

Now just hunting around for the last blueprint (Massdriver) and a cleaning up

But a big well done to Fishlabs for making the most fun game i've played on the iPhone in a good while

Feel free to add me.
