1.8.0

General

This update features some heavy overhauls to Celestian AI, new cafe items and provides bug fixes and performance mods. All Queltod have learned a new attack.

Intelligent Decisions

Celestians now have brains. Prior to this update, they would mostly make random decisions on what to do. Celestians can now see their targets and make decisions based on the situation. Each Celestian species has its own fighting style, too.
