1.0.5.4 in Experimental

Hello Nomads,

We are currently working on fixing bugs introduced in last game update with new Unity engine version. We've just released a new update fixing mainly issues with blueprints.

Here is the list of changes:
removed no-longer-working 3rd party UI library (fixed blueprint creation window freeze)
fixed error from zip library
removed shadows dithering (dot patterns in shadows caused by transparent windows)
bigger sun lightmap texture on ultra settings (better shadow resolution)

1.0.5.5 in Experimental

Hello Nomads,

We've just released the 1.0.5.5 update. It brings some performance gain on Linux with new libc - Sandy engine is faster there. But should be still compatible with old distros. However, we recommend using current distributions for best performance.

List of changes:
added secondary SandyEngine binary build for Linux (newer one for better performance, older one for compatibility)

1.0.6.0 in Experimental Branch [06 Dec]
Hello Nomads,

You can now check-out the newly prepared features in the Experimental branch.

We've rearranged blocks into new categories, added some new blocks and a new view for the Tech Tree. There are also some changes in Creative Mode to allow building "unfinished" blocks and use other tools.

Here is the full list of changes in 1.0.6.0:

New features - Blocks

added new blocks - armor and glass pieces
rearranged all blocks into more cateogories, according to their intended usage (bases, vehicles, cargo,...)
added a Tech Tree view (switch button in top right corner in the Block Catalog) - displays all in-game blocks, even locked ones with the lock reason (ie. by quest etc.)

New features - Creative

added welding & cutting of blocks into the Creative Mode - with Multitool you can create "unfinished" states of blocks, with a block equipped, you delete blocks by one click (as you are used to)
possible to use other tools - Block Mover, Weapon, Scanner - you need to set them to some key in keybinding in options, as there are no inventory in Creative

New features - Building

added keyboard modifier for building "in the air" - it's now possible to build ungrounded blocks
faster block coloring (mainly in Creative)

Bugfixes

temporary switch from 1st person to 3rd person close-up if camera is behind the wall - to prevent looking "through the wall"
fixed colliders on Hinge joints - reduced unnecessary vibrations in extreme positions
fixed graphical glitch with weather - roofing does not influence fog appearance anymore
fixed some overflows in HDR post-processing - hopefully eliminated the "black ink smearing" bug
fixed blocked Quests functionality (in case player exited the Drop Pod too early)
tutorial: removed direct block equip of a block without using Hotbar (a little advanced feature for newcomers, could lead to deadlock in tutorial)
tutorial: removed altimeter from cockpit UI

PS. I don't know if this graphic will end up in the game or if it's just one of the concept graphics.

1.0.6.2 in Experimental [13 Jan]
Hello Nomads,

Welcome in the 2020. We've just released an Experimental update bringing some optimizations and tweaks inspired by your feedback.

It is possible to finish the game without the need of complex container structures but we know that it's one thing that you really enjoy. Slow UI response in this situation was real pain and we've found a solution to this. Only the main container (the one you point at when opening the Inventory dialog) will be visible at first, others will load later asynchronously after displaying the window and its contents will be rendered only if you click on "+" button. This together with some other rendering optimizations made the window pop up nearly instant. We hope you'll love it.

Second feature was also long required. It's a modification of Winch that allow you to lock it in place and also manipulate the load height manually by assigning it a key in terminal. Keybinding is similar as with Hinge and Rotor.

Last tiny improvement is the Load button in death screen. We know that some of you prefer loading the game instead of respawn, so you can load your game directly after dying instead of going through the main menu.

Here is the list of changes to sum it up:

optimization of container (inventory) view - asynchronous loading of pre-collapsed containers, faster items rendering, added "take it all" button for all connected containers
added motor locking and keybinding to Winch
rearranged death screen, added "load game" button
1.0.6.3 in Experimental [04 Feb]
Hello Nomads,

We've just released a new update of the game. We continue to improve the Winch experience, fixed some achievement issues and added a debug tool for them.


Speaking about Winch, upon fixing minor bugs we've looked at often mentioned issue with ripping of the rope. You might not know that internally, the "rope" is a solid joint, and it cannot bend in reaction to external contacts. Breaking rope on contact helps to hide its unrealistic nature. But your feedback made us uncertain if the breaking is a nice, challenging feature or just an annoying bug and you would rather prefer having sci-fi matter permeating rope working at any condition.

As a compromise, we've modified the rope to not rip on contact with the grid on which the appropriate winch or shackle is on. This should fix most problems, like breaking the rope by oscillating weight itself, while keeping some challenge like cutting the rope by incautious movement in terrain or collisions with other creations. Let us know in comments how do you like it now.


We have also multiple reports of players not gaining some achievements. We've found that achievements requiring cutting blocks did not work. It's probably a consequence of some code changes introduced with some ancient update. We've fixed this. Also some of you might have achievements that were acquired while being offline and now is missing in the data on Steam servers.

To address this kind of issues we've added a simple tool for debugging achievements. In game, you can type command "achievements" in console (that will show you after pressing Shift+F1). It will show you which achievements you've already acquired. It will also try to re-send it to Steam API and check the state of the Achievement on the server. For other achievements you can see current raw values to watch how it progresses.


Here is the full list of changes:

Winch bugfixing

- fixed deleting of Winch/Shackle in Creative mode
- modified physics of connection ("rope")
- do not break connection caused by same grid as corresponding Winch or Shackle is on
- fix bug that occurred when splitting grid containing winch or shackle
- allow connecting winch & shackle on the same grid

Achievements bugfixing

- added debug commands for achievements
- fixed achievements that requied block cutting

fix not rendered character head inside
fix lens flare effect rendered inside Stasis Chamber

1.0.6.4 in Experimental Branch [26 May]
Hello Nomads,

We've just released a new experimental update - version 1.0.6.4, with some bug fixes and tweaks.

The biggest change is probably in cockpits - when you exit the cockpit, it will remember the camera setting for the next time. We've also added some reduction of "bad" weather duration.

saving camera state (1st/3rd person and distance) separately for each cockpit
added option to reduce duration of "bad" weather
added flashing to "Terry's ship" icon in compass
added labels to planet map
