Born Ready Games has responded to community and critic feedback with a new patch for Strike Suit Zero which introduces a first-person cockpit view for all ships, multiple difficulty levels with the added promise that some difficulty spikes have been addressed, user-made checkpoints (!), and a revamped targeting system.
The patch also has fixes for more of the remaining bugs, which you can see below in the full patch notes. I passed on Strike Suit Zero initially due to a lack of leisure time, not a lack of interest, but hearing about these improvements makes me believe that was probably for the best. This is starting to sound like the game it should be, which means I'll need to grab a copy here shortly.
Implemented the cockpit:
Cockpit view now uses a 3D cockpit Mesh which we enable/disable when we switch camera modes.
New settings option to play Suit in third person or first person
Cockpit uses a small speed shake when boosting
Cockpit reacts when damaged
Cockpit has mesh swap for Suit and Strike modes
Added option to make the cockpit visible or invisible
Checkpoints now saved during a mission -- The Player can resume missions from the last checkpoint. Restarting a checkpoint will leave you with the flux you had when you started it
Changing difficulty mid mission requires a restart of the mission
New difficulty modes added: Easy and Hardcore
Choose difficulty in mission select
Score per difficulty uploaded to Leaderboards
Leaderboards filter updated to reflect new difficulties
Added message to start of the game first time running with new difficulty options
