    Hello Galactic Survivalists!

    Thanks to the quick feedback we could fix some bugs:

    ==========

    2020-07-30: Alpha 12.3.3 Patch (Build 3034)

    Changes:
    - Updated Waystation 04 (vermillion)
    - Updated REBAR and SPATHE prefab CVs (XCaliber)
    - Added SHIV prefab SV (XCaliber)
    - Reduced drop chance of Plasma Blaster (PlasmaCannonAlien)
    - Added Zirax Gas Refinery (Kaeser)
    - Added Polaris Trading Station variant (vermillion)
    - Added Civilian Waystations
    - Updated Waystations Trader and NPC spawns
    - Changed weapon sounds and effects on Alien Plasma Cannon
    - Slightly increased Blast Damage of Alien Plasma Cannon

    - Network optimization: lower position/rotation update rate for entities that are farther away
    - Set all block device textures back to 1024 pixels to save main memory until we can compress the texture arrays again. As there are few details in these textures, this change will be hardly visible.
    - Set all hangar and blast shutter doors from 4k to 2k pixels
    - Instance lock after spawn: set from 5s to 2s

    Fixes:
    - Removed an optional positive sign '+' in ItemsConfig, may lead to CoQ depending on configured culture

    - Fixed: MarketCafe Trader item lineup
    - Added missing human trader dead prefab; added missing trader dead _dedi prefabs.
    - Added proper controller to TalonTraderDead 1 and 2 prefabs.
    - Avatar size glitch after spamming the toilet block
    - De-cored structures get removed moments after a player places their own core onto the structure
    - Fixed problem that player could switch off shields of enemy bases when being close to it and pressing hotkey
    - Fixed client CoQ in console cmd 'prefabinfo'
    - Fixed issue on parameters for loot drops
    - Fixed missing Asian characters in PDA HUD and Logistics window container dropdowns
    - Zirax Turrets do not work in Multiplayer
    - CoQ on Opening Inventory
    - Fixed huge memory leak when travelling between sectors that contained planets. The planet textures and mesh were not released correctly.
    - several other exceptions / CoQ's

    Thank for the AI fix!

    Any plans for the retractable variant of SV minigun turret, guys?

    I didn't even realize this was missing, as I haven't yet tried to use the SV minigun turret. But yes, the retractable version of the turret is a must!! I pretty much only use the retractable versions of all turrets, exclusively.

    Do you realize that any kind of weapon is a priority target by the enemies? Do you really want to attract fire on places of your SV behind/bellow which armor is thin and vital parts of said SV will be exposed after destruction of retractable turrets? Do you like big holes on your SVs?

    Same thing applies to CV but no one is complaining about having retractable CV turrets. You still has the normal variant if you want to use it.
    And actually that's why we have shields - to not worry about block damage

    Not everyone thinks and plays the same way. Options are always good whether we agree with them or not.

    Regardless of our opinions on this, having 2 variants will allow people to use what they think is better and just ignore the other variant

    Only problem is that there are no more IDs to make new items/ blocks/ entities.

    Not sure if this particular turret can be added to SVs with config (didn't try) because of the animation when it gets "out of the box".

    This really caused some rescue missions, glad it's gone, despite the fun.

    Brilliant, guys! Thanks a lot.

    Does that only fix things when loading save games?
    I constantly find my vessel teleporting to another playfield, far away in single player mode.
    It only happens with SV docked to my space base and after I teleport many times before coming back home.
    Maybe it's because my space base is slowly moving?

    With item ID's all used up will there ever be more assets added to the game?

    Since 12, I can't play anymore.
    the message appears (mail & quit) and that's it.
    What happened?

    Hmm, seems that coring any enemy structure (in space at least) now results in a complete self destruct and removal of the structure. I used to get some good looting from cored wrecks of Zirax ships and stations. Feels like there's not much point going in and facing the enemies for a handful of loot containers instead of lots of juicy thrusters. Is this also happening with planetside structures now?
