    So, Just something that bugs me, not specifically with this update, but because we are now on Alpha 9. Since Dynamic Space Playfields came out in Alpha 8, Why can we still not add descriptions to space playfields for us to start in? It looks a little silly on my custom scenario to have a description for the one planet you can start on, but two other start locations with no information about them available, simply because they are space playfields.

    Hey. It is really cool that you bring out all the updates, but can you slow it down a bit? As a server owner it is a bit annoying to have to restart all the time and over the hollidays i can't do it at all.
    A fixed patch day would be a lot more convenient.

    I figured out what's been causing massive frame rate drops when looking towards the middle of a POI, large base, or large ship (even the SV POIs in space). SSAO and Parallax Occlusion Mapping. I had them on HIGH. I turned off SSAO, the frame rate problem reduced significantly. When I shut off POM, the frame rate trouble went away completely.

    While Alpha 9 is running pretty well for me - I rarely drop below a vSync'd 60fps - I do still get huge fps drops as time goes on. I.e I load my save and drive over the terrain in my HV and all is well. After playing for an hour, doing the same thing = lots of frame drops / micro freezes. Actually, the freezing is significant enough for these NOT to be micro-freezes any more, the game freeze for a full second at times...it gets worse but I usually save/reload at that point and all is well again. To be clear, the game still mostly runs at the same solid 60fps it was, but it'll freeze for a second regularly - primarily when travelling, so it must be some terrain / item loading thing.

    Note: during these freezes both CPU and GPU load drop massively, so I don't know what's going on, but it's not CPU/GPU resource related...plus I have RAM to spare and fast drives so it's not that.

    These little snags have been in the game for ages, and they get worse the longer you play between save/reload. I hope the devs can figure out what's causing this, as the game otherwise runs pretty well.

    @Nalle_Bear , use heavy armor with temperature mods or have a hatch on the roof and deploy a drone from inside your HV. This is a sandbox after all, explore the possibilities :)

    I noticed this, too. I had to go into "options" and re-map the key. It's a bit of a bother, but easily raken care of.

    Did that work? When I tried remapping it just changed the key to switch between player and virtual toolbars.

    Yes please! It would be nice even for non-starter space playfields too.
