PREAMBLE First things first: this is not yet the FULL implementation of Volume, Weight and Logistics. Although we already added and updated weight and volume numbers for most of the items and blocks (except handheld and ammo, food and other small items) and a new Logistics GUI and gameplay, VOLUME as a limiting factor is still DEACTIVATED for several reasons. For the one part this relates to required, new GUI features that are not yet fully implemented, and for the other part this is a very profound change in the overall game system. Said that, please expect a few more rough edges than usual and also expect that the full implementation will take one or two major version updates, given how widespread the touchpoints with the rest of the gameare. On the pro side, this will give you time to adopt to the new way to handle things and allow us to collect more "live feedback" for improvements. --- NOTE: VolumeWeight is now default-on and available/activated in "_TestScenario" and "_TestBaseAttack" --- For those that WANT to test volume limits in other scenarios (given there are a few obstacles that cannot be solved with the current GUI, like placing a 2500l Large Constructor from the Portable Constructor) 1. Go to ...\Empyrion - Galactic Survival\Content\Scenarios\Default Random 2. open the gameoptions.yaml 3. Set EnableVolumeWeight: False to True 4. start a new default survival game Note: to use Volume/Weight in other scenarios, you need to go to the scenarios folder and change the gameoptions.yaml there as well! --- WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW for Alpha 9 There are four terms that you should know about 1. Logistics Menu (button: F4) 2. Virtual Toolbar (button: T) 3. Wireless Control Block (short handle "WiFi") 4. Modular Containers The change you might need get accustomed to is, instead of carrying around any block or item in your backpack or placing it from there, you will want to and can rely on the new LOGISTIC feature, which not only allows you to circumvent volume and weight limitations, but also allows to use this for remote actions via Wifi and the Virtual Toolbar.
