Hi Galactic Survivalists!

First of all, thanks a lot to all of you taking part in and contributing to the version 1.6 Experimental! The Autumn update has just been released to the public branch. It is now waiting for even more feedback and improvement suggestions!

Same as for the Experimental version, these are the main feature updates and changes:
  • Reactivated terrain deco destruction (trees, plants)
  • Enabled all 3 planes for use with symmetry mode
  • Reworked loading screens
  • New visual / graphical post-processing
  • New weapon models for Sniper Rifle, Minigun, Warp Drive (Epic)
  • Explorers Guild micro missions including update of Epic Boosters (rebalancing) and Epic devices as rewards (Epic Autominer, Detector HV/CV, Warp Drive CV)Addition of ARC and WASTELANDERS as new interactive factions (first iteration)
  • Colonists got their first Reputation Mission “Pirate Hunt” (more to come)
Find all the details below!

Changes:

Terrain deco destruction:

[​IMG]

& a toggle for deco destruction which can be added to the gameoptions.yaml:
Code:
EnableDecoKnockDown: True/False # (Default True) to Activate or Deactivate the Terrain Decoration Destruction
- The ability to knock down a deco depends on the speed, mass & thrust power of the ship (don't expect a tiny HV to be able to knock down every deco at once).
When a vessel hits f.ex a tree and is not able to knock it down some damage is done to the tree. So after a few hits the tree could go down.

Enabled all 3 planes for use with symmetry mode:
  • Supporting now up to 3 symmetry planes active at the same time. Work flow:
  1. Set each plane in the location you want them in 1 by 1
  2. Then activate them all at the same time after they have all been set 1 by 1.

Hi Galactic Survivalists,

We are very sorry but something broke in the last patch. DO NOT update the game and server atm.
If you have done this already then the best is to shutdown and wait till we fixed it so things dont get worse then it is.

Note: this only applies to Old SaveGames. If you start a fresh SaveGame then everything works fine
