  • Lol, I haven't updated since we had alien science packs? Yikes. Added a few things and fixed all the drinks.


  • Support for 0.16


  • Changed assembling machines to "Crafty Box" (because why were they factories?)
  • Changed modules to be elves
  • Added elf icons for modules (with an option to turn them off)
