Patch 1.0.5 is now live

Patch 1.0.5 is now live on Desura! Aside from fixes, the main gameplay change is that NPC shipyards are running out of the big ships, since only players make these now. In addition, many will be pleased...

The "Connect" tab is here in Desura and likely above these posts here. Right above the summary of the game.

And after you "connected" Desura to Ascent, you will recieve your 1 month code via email. Paste it into the Premium window found in-game.

I assume you two either found your answers anyway or gave up a while ago, but I missed the part where the code was sent to email and asked some friendly players online. Just thought it would be good to say it here in the comments in case someone asks in the future.

Desura updates once per week. However, we now have our own updater - if you buy on Desura you can get the latest update via our servers from then on.

You can only buy the 3 month pack in game.

The Desura/PC build is updated about weekly at the moment.

It now comes bundled with a month of premium (use the connect feature) but further premium purchases are in-game only at the moment.

Yes it will add on. All premium purchases are additive with whatever you already have in your account, unless it's expired in which case it counts from the moment of purchase.

We had to put the price up to bundle the month of premium and to account for the FAR higher quality of the PC client these days over the release version. It now has a lot more stuff, runs a lot better and has a lot of great new art :)
