    Hi Galactic Survivalists,

    we just released again a small patch for Alpha 8.6.

    Please continue to report bugs over here: https://empyriononline.com/threads/...play-read-introduction-before-reporting.43916

    Yours,

    Emp Dev Team

    ===========

    CHANGELOG Alpha 8.6.3 (Build 1891)

    Bug Fixes:

    Changed:
    - Repair-to-Template window: Allow shift-click to quick move ingots from bag to item drop
    - Repair-to-Template window: Increase timeout before updating Repair Data when adding ingots to 6s
    - Increased check-distance for free blocks in front of a weapon

    Fixed:
    - CoQ with Repair-to-Template
    - After changing the faction of a CV it is sometimes possible to fly through hull blocks with the vessels that become undocked
    - Dead NPC still persistent and targetable at 'edge of visibility range'
    - Possible fix for fps drop when rotating a CV with docked ships
    - Placing follow-up light does not use settings from the previously placed light
    - Explosive device does not explode in space
    - Repair-to-Template is not completed after moving away then returning
    - Harvest module info shows 'Harvest box missing' when box is placed on the vessel

    Could somebody explain what the changes mean? I guess I'm supposed to know, but I don't.

    That goes for a lot of the past changes in this game. I still enjoy the game, but obviously, I have no idea what's going on.

    I suppose if I don't understand it, it has no bearing on MY game. Still, a little help here would be appreciated.

    Thanks for the update, this game is my favourite is there any reason why we can't make water bottles anymore I can see them being constructed when I make my vegie cans but its not a constructible item.

    Increasing the check distance in front of weapons is a great call.

    I build surrounds and cowlings around all my gun emplacements to make them look more built-in, rather than stuck-on. I totally understand the exploit remediation though. Hopefully, my little half-blocks in front of turrets will be OK now :D

    This update seems to be mostly bug fixes or small tweaks. Ask if there's a particular thing you're not sure about and I'm sure someone can help explain it better.

    I'm inquiring about the 3 changes listed. I haven't done the Repair-to-template bit yet. Is there really a bag involved? And what is 6s?
    What does "Increased check-distance to free blocks" mean?

    I guess I'm the only one who doesn't know this stuff.

    Bag = your inventory. That just means you can hold down the shift key and click on stacks of ingots in your player inventory to quickly deposit them into the repair bay.

    6s = 6 seconds. This just means the repair bay info window waits a few seconds after you add ingots to it before it updates the information it's showing you, probably to prevent any bugs or lag.

    The increased check distance means that the game will do a better job at making sure you didn't place blocks in front of your weapons. It will factor in blocks placed further away and won't allow your weapon to fire if it would hit part of your own ship.

    Hope this helps!

    Yes, very!
    I've been playing EGS for a long time and have never seen the inventory referred to as "Bag".
    The statement regarding "increased timeout" read like "adding ingots to 6s" meant 6s was getting more ingots, hence my question.

    Thamks again.

    Okay, so I'm a bit behind the curve in noticing this, but please for the love of christ, fix your distance code. Do a one-time raycast from weapon's center or something. Thin blocks like walls or windows are in NO WAY an obstruction to most weapons if laying flat.

    While we're on the topic, obstructed weapons should not consume ammo when "attempting" to fire.
