Hello Galactic Survivalists!

Welcome to the release of the version 1.7 EXPERIMENTAL update!

If you follow us on Discord, Twitter, Facebook or in our forums, you've probably already seen one or two changes for the upcoming version. Among other things, this is the first iteration of a new fluid effect system that reacts to interactions with the respective fluids (water, lava) - be it when a vehicle is moving fast, being shot at, wading through, or just having a nice swell on the shore. Further improvements for this are planned.

The AI pathfinding on terrain has also received a far-reaching improvement. Obstacles such as trees, stones and plants will be recognised better in future and the movement paths will be smoothened.

Aside from purely technical changes, for all creative galaxy builders, lots of new options for designing the galaxy, the nebulae to new settings for items and blocks have been added to the latest version!

For all players looking for new content, POI and missions, there is also new stuff to do and find. Almost 100 new ships and stations have been added to 1.7 thanks to the tireless builders from the community. Satellite hacking is now also fully implemented. More information on missions and gameplay is now also available in updated entries in the in-game Empyriopedia (F1).

We also updated Invader vs Defender with a big surprise coming at the end of Experimental for our Official Servers.

As always, please remember that to test the new content (including the test planet for new biomes) it is best to start a new savegame with the Experimental version. Changes to this area during Experimental may make it necessary to restart or manually update certain areas of the game.

All details, as well as the list of further changes, adjustments and especially bug fixes can be found in the changelog below!

As always please note:

Even a slight ripple can change the world ... but if you're not #DrWho and are playing #Empyrion Galactic Survival in update 1.7, it may be a result of the optics and effects upgrade for water!

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.
