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

Hello Galactic Survivalists!

The year is about to come to its end - but not yet! In order to improve multiple areas of the game, we will release version 1.10.5 around mid-December.

Today, we will start the Experimental phase for you to have a look and review the changes and fixes.
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.

Of course, 1.10.5 also contains a list of bug fixes.
Please find all the details in the changelog below.

As always - please report each bug over here for this experimental release phase:
