Hello Galactic Survivalists!

The festive season is upon us, so it's high time we released update 1.10.5 for everyone waiting for the latest updates, content additions and bug fixes!

With this update, we're not only moving to a new version of Unity, but also adding goodies like AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution 2 and NVIDIA DLSS2. You can find some important information about these two new features in the changelog below. With the two technical changes also come a number of field optimisations that are very important for our multiplayer servers and their communities.

On the content side, we would like to present you the new models for constructors, deconstructors and other crafting devices, the new deco trees for interiors, a number of new and updated POIs (some of them with the new NPC model of the Brotherhood of Farr), some new building shapes, improvements to the tools for collecting blueprints and more.

Of course, version 1.10.5 also includes a list of bug fixes.
You can find all the details in the changelog below.
As always, please report any bugs here:

We wish you lots of fun! :)

- Please note that our Official Servers will wipe today with this release.
We will also reset the “Official Server Player Role” on our Discord. If you
want access again to the channels specially for the Official Servers you need
to use the /global_chat command on Discord.

Official Multiplayer Servers
EU / NA Server:
- Activated the Christmas Event for 2023
- Added Mrs. Nesbitt Suit Prop Hat

- Added video options for AMD FSR2 and NVIDIA DLSS2
We have added support for AMD's FSR2 and NVIDIA's DLSS2 to our game, which can be found at the bottom of the video options in the options menu. These technologies work by using different methods to upscale lower resolution frames to higher resolution ones, while preserving and enhancing the details and sharpness of the original image. They can help you improve your performance and graphics quality, depending...

Hello Galactic Survivalists!

Welcome to the third release of Empyrion Galactic Survival v1.10.5 Experimental branch.
Please see the changelog for new additions to this release.
As always, we extend our gratitude for your unwavering support and valuable feedback throughout this experimental phase.

As always - please report each bug over here for this experimental release phase:
https://empyriononline.com/forums/bugs.34/

====

Changelog v1.10.5 B4257 2023-12-12

Fixes:

- Fix for a regression found with mining/drilling trees & terrain deco on some planets (they cannot be mined/drilled)

====

Changelog v1.10.5 B4256 2023-12-11


Changes:

- Changed DLSS version to 2.5.1 to avoid the ghosting issue found in later versions
- Disabled Sky Reflection with DLSS

Fixes:

- Fixed Ghost tree seen on planet in front of the player
- Fixed NPC Blocks rotating when accessing a dialogue on it

====


Changelog v1.10.5 B4255 2023-12-06


Changes:

- Added a video option for Nvidia DLSS2:
We have added support for NVIDIA's DLSS2 to our game which can be found at the bottom of the video options in the options menu.
Like with FSR2 we recommend using DLSS2 with at least 2k resolution or 4k.
You can also choose from three image quality modes: Quality, Balanced, and Performance.
Each mode has a different performance boost and a different image quality.
DLSS2 can help you achieve smoother and more responsive gameplay, depending on your hardware, resolution + video options, and scene complexity.

Nvidia users at native 2k resolution can also experiment with using DLDSR & or DSR from the nvidia control panel in combination with DLSS2 to improve overall picture quality.
To do this simply open the Nvidia control panel from your desktop then navigate to:
Manage 3d settings > Global settings > DSR - Factors:
If you have the “DL scaling” options at the top of the GUI choose those over the “Legacy” options. For now test with just the 1.78x option by checking the box then select ok & apply in the control panel.
You may...

Hello Galactic Survivalists!

Welcome to the second release of Empyrion Galactic Survival v1.10.5 Experimental branch.
Please see the changelog for new additions to this release. We have also made the dedicated server files available for MP on the Experimental branch as of this release.
As always, we extend our gratitude for your unwavering support and valuable feedback throughout this experimental phase.

As always - please report each bug over here for this experimental release phase:
https://empyriononline.com/forums/bugs.34/

Changelog v1.10.5 B4251 2023-11-29

Changes:
- Added a video option for AMD FSR2 + implementation & default settings:
We have added support for AMD’s FSR2 to our game which can be found at the bottom of the video options in the options menu.
FSR2 works by intelligently upscaling lower resolution frames to higher resolution ones, while preserving and enhancing the details and sharpness of the original image.

We recommend using FSR2 only with 4K and 2K resolutions, as these are the optimal settings for this technology. Using FSR2 with lower resolutions may result in blurry or pixelated images, as the upscaling process may not have enough information to work with. If you are using a lower resolution monitor or device, you may want to keep FSR2 disabled & use the native resolution of your screen.
Each mode has a different performance boost and a different image quality. FSR2 can help you increase your FPS and reduce your GPU usage, depending on your hardware, resolution, and scene complexity. However, FSR2 only works on GPU-bound scenarios, and it has some limitations and trade-offs.

- Added/updated POI (Kriel, RAV, Colonists, Talon'Ar; Thx to Don2k7, Stellar_Titan, Escarli, Matcz)
- Added new 'City Ruins' POI (by sulusdacor)

Playfield changes:
- Ground texture and deco tweaks for the following playfield types:
(Desert, MoonIce2, MoonNascent, Scorched, Snow, Arid, Barren, BarrenMetal, Lava, LavaNascent, Moon, MoonDesert, MoonIce, MoonLava, MoonLava2, Temperate, TemperatePlateau, TemperateSwamp, DesertBurn)
- Removed some texture artifacts
- Added all basic RockResources to each world.
- Scorched: Adjusted daylight intensity
DesertBurnt:
- Changed some biomes in spawn order
- Fixes for some creatures not appearing
- Removed Plantation biome, renamed Sand biome into LavaPlains, SandDrift biome into LavaField, added LavaFolds biome...

Dear Community,

It is with heavy hearts and profound sadness that we share the news of the passing of our esteemed colleague and friend, Jascha. It is an incredibly challenging moment for all of us as we come together to remember and honor the life of someone who was not only a valuable member of our team but also a cherished individual.

He made the Empyrion Admin Helper (EAH) , worked with us on the API and the multiplayer side of the game.
Without his contributions Empyrion as you know it, would not exist.

Let us extend our deepest condolences to Jascha's family and friends.
Our thoughts are with them during this challenging time.

May we find strength in our shared memories of Jascha and in the support we provide to one another as a united family.

Sincerely,

Eleon Game Studios

Note:

On the content side, we would like you to enjoy the all-new models for constructors, deconstructors, and other crafting devices, the new deco indoor trees, a slew of new and updated POIs (some with the new Brotherhood of Farr NPC model added), a few new building shapes, improvements to the blueprint collection toolset, and more.
