I don't know about others, but once I get into the late game where my colony is self-sufficient, I have a tendency to just leave the game running for several days at a time. I will get on my computer and play for a while every night, but I may not close it out and reopen it. This means I miss updates for a few days sometimes. Would it be possible to add an item in the menu that lets you know there is an update?
I do the same thing lol.
For a quick fix you could always join one of the discord federations listed in https://www.ape-apps.com/viewpage.php?p=28749
Both have rss feeds of the site so you can see that way when an update gets pushed out
