What’s New

This page lists the history of changes across stable Phobos releases and also all the stuff that requires modders to change something in their mods to accomodate.



You can use the migration utility (can be found on Phobos supplementaries repo) to apply most of the changes automatically using a corresponding sed script file.

From vanilla

  • SHP debris hardcoded shadows now respect Shadow=no tag value, and due to it being the default value they wouldn’t have hardcoded shadows anymore by default. Override this by specifying Shadow=yes for SHP debris.

  • Translucent RLE SHPs will now be drawn using a more precise and performant algorithm that has no green tint and banding. Can be disabled with rulesmd.ini->[General]->FixTransparencyBlitters=no.

  • Iron Curtain status is now preserved by default when converting between TechnoTypes via DeploysInto/UndeploysInto. This behavior can be turned off per-TechnoType and global basis using [SOMETECHNOTYPE]/[CombatDamage]->IronCurtain.KeptOnDeploy=no.

From older Phobos versions

From pre-0.3 devbuilds

  • Trajectory.Speed is now defined on projectile instead of weapon.

  • Gravity=0 is not supported anymore as it will cause the projectile to fly backwards and be unable to hit the target which is not at the same height. Use Straight Trajectory instead. See here.

  • Automatic self-destruction logic logic has been reimplemented, Death.NoAmmo, Death.Countdown and Death.Peaceful tags have been remade/renamed and require adjustments to function.

  • DetachedFromOwner on weapons is deprecated. This has been replaced by AllowDamageOnSelf on warheads.

  • Timed jump script actions now take the time measured in ingame seconds instead of frames. Divide your value by 15 to accomodate to this change.

  • Placement Preview logic has been adjusted, BuildingPlacementPreview.DefaultTranslucentLevel, BuildingPlacementGrid.TranslucentLevel, PlacementPreview.Show, PlacementPreview.TranslucentLevel and ShowBuildingPlacementPreview tags have been remade/renamed and require adjustments to function. In addition, you must explicitly enable this feature by specifying [AudioVisual]->PlacementPreview=yes.

  • Existing script actions were renumbered, please use the migration utility to change the numbers to the correct ones.


  • Keys rulesmd.ini->[SOMEWARHEAD]->PenetratesShield and rulesmd.ini->[SOMEWARHEAD]->BreaksShield have been changed to Shield.Penetrate and Shield.Break, respectively.

  • Rad.NoOwner on weapons is deprecated. This has been replaced by RadHasOwner key on radiation types itself. It also defaults to no, so radiation once again has no owner house by default.

  • RadApplicationDelay and RadApplicationDelay.Building on custom radiation types are now only used if [Radiation] -> UseGlobalRadApplicationDelay is explicitly set to false, otherwise values from [Radiation] are used.

  • Existing script actions were renumbered, please use the migration utility to change the numbers to the correct ones.

From 0.1.1

  • Key rulesmd.ini->[SOMETECHNOTYPE]->Deployed.RememberTarget is deprecated and can be removed now, the bugfix for DeployToFire deployers is now always on.
