Hello Galactic Survivalists!

Get ready for an exciting update with Version 1.9.10! What fantastic features and improvements can you expect?

A brief list of the main feature changes and additions:

  • Added a dedicated standalone tutorial for new players
  • FPS optimization (Object Culling & AI Multi threading optimization)
  • Radial damage hit indicator (player/vessel combat)
  • Improved Animations
  • Improved damage indication visuals (player)
  • Device/Signal group hotkeys (Control Panel)
  • Check out our update release video and the detailed changelog below for more details

We would like to extend a huge thank you to all the contributors of bases and ships. With this update, we have added a larger batch of your submissions from the public Builders Forum (with more to come!).
As always:

The Eleon team wishes you loads of fun playing the new version!

Changes:

Convenience:
- Added hotkeys for control panel signals & device groups:
  • Device Groups are toggled with CTRL + SHIFT + 1 to 8
  • Signals Column are toggled with CTRL + ALT + 1 to 8
Optimizations:
- Adding Occlusion Culling to structure decoration blocks & NPC's in rooms the player cannot see when in a POI & optimizations to AI multi threading have been worked on.
With both of the above optimizations available as of this build you should see an FPS boost in POI’s.
Note: Activating godmode disables the culling so the FPS will go down to how it used to be until godmode is disabled when at a POI.

Visuals & Effects:

- Added new animations for Jumping, running & sprinting, falling & crouch walking with a weapon equipped (improved)
- Added radial damage indicator to Vessel HUD. Now players damage will appear in red & vessel damage will appear in blue
Added new screen vfx...

Hello Galactic Survivalists!

Welcome to Experimental Version 1.9.10! What does it have in store for you? Let’s do a quick summary.

We have added two new methods for FPS optimization (AI and Occlusion Culling) and there is also a long-desired convenience update in the form of the control panel hotkeys. Furthermore, and for the first time, we added a directional visual hit display in the player's field of view! Various VFX have also been finalized for status effects, e.g. radiation, temperatures and poisoning. For all creatives, there are new options for block management, as well as in the PDA. For all builders, there is now an option to automatically correct the pivot point.

Please have a look at the changelog below for more detailed information.

Last but not least, we would like to thank all contributors of bases and ships - a larger batch of your submissions from the public Builders Forum has been added again with this update (to be continued!).

As always:
- Please post bugs and errors to this forum:
https://empyriononline.com/forums/bugs.34/

- Feedback on specific points, please post here in the pinned or new threads:
https://empyriononline.com/forums/experimental-features-discussion.35/

The Eleon team wishes you a lot of fun testing the new version!

Changes:
Convenience
- Added hotkeys for control panel signals & device groups:
Device Groups are toggled with CTRL + SHIFT + 1 to 8
Signals Column are toggled with CTRL + ALT + 1 to 8

Optimization

- Performance optimizations for AI have been added as well as the implementation of Occlusion culling (only culling deco & NPC's in rooms the player cannot see in POI's) which you should see result in FPS boosts in large POI's such as "Deep space radar complex".
Note: Activating godmode disables the culling so the FPS will go down to how it used to be until godmode is disabled.

Visuals & Effects
- Added radial damage indicator to Player HUD
- WIP: Added new animations for Jumping, running & sprinting, falling & crouch walking with a weapon equipped (improved)
- Added new screen vfx for:
- Radiation: Activates when Body Radiations reaches 4
- Poison: Activates for both stages of Poison Bite
- Heat: Activates when Body Temperatures reaches 38
- Frost: When body temp lowers to 9 ​
- Improved new Load/Start menu:

The next time you run and jump over a ledge in Empyrion, it will still hurt on impact ...
but your sprinting and falling will look so much better! :NewSunglasses: #indiegame #indiedevs
