    Hi Galactic Survivalists!

    Welcome to version 1.2!

    Those of you, following us on the forums, twitter and Discord might already have seen a few of the additions, update 1.2 will add to the game. But as this patch has been growing a bit more into an intermediate version, there is a lot more to be found. Some additions might only seem to be visual changes, like the new Asteroid rings (which are now visible from planets as well) and other entries of the changelog below might sound like technical shenanigans, but both will prepare some of the groundwork we will iterate on for this years ‘Christmas update’.

    NewGame_5_2020-09-28_11-03-57.png

    While you venture through the world of v1.2, also mind the new behavior and attacks of the ‘Otyugh’ land predator, check the loot boxes closely for a new fire-spitting weapon and enjoy all the new POIs.

    A note for builders: In case your structure or vessel suddenly loses oxygen, check your slant, half and irregular blocks, tilted windows and other elements that worked to ‘seal off’ an area before! The O2 distribution is now calculated on 0.5m scale and will be able to fill in and pass through tighter areas!

    Check out all the changes and additions in the changelog below!

    ====

    Hotfix 2020-10-23 v1.2.2 (Build 3135)

    Fixes:
    - Fixed: turret docked collider target <- AI Turrets no longer target docked vessels
    - Fixed problem that rockets did not hit a moving ship reliable
    - Potential fix for dialogue variables getting reset to 0: set wait timeout for DB variables from 10s to 30s. Less DB traffic by writing player log data less often (every 3min instead of every 1min)

    ====

    Hotfix 2020-10-20 v1.2.1 (Build 3134)

    Changes:
    - Removed template of Flamethrower fuel as it is not intended to be craftable

    Fixes:
    - Fixed: BlockDestroyed Check do not work properly anymore (won't fix existing savegames)
    - Fixed: O2 tanks missed texture after SI collapse
    - Fixed: Oxygen doesn't fill the back side of force field
    - Fixed: Center of Mass shifted from center
    - Fixed: When a HV enters a gravity gen field it can be launched up away from the structure
    - Fix for exploit that you could open the CP on junk structures that had no core by clicking the "Statistics" button in the Registry
    - Possible fix for client crashes if the colliders of two big ships overlapped

    ====

    Hotfix 2020-10-12 v1.2.1 (Build 3132)


    Fixes:

    - Fixed "Spawn at Home base" not working in MP if player died in a different playfield
    - Fixed bright spot on a planet happening during night sometimes.
    - Fixed regression that sun flare did not have the color of the sun.
    - Fixed reported exception on pf server (CA savegame) when loading 'Black Hole'

    ====

    Patch 2020-10-10 v1.2 (Build 3131)

    Fixes:
    - Fixed: Wrong visualisation for "Show Airtight Blocks"
    - Fixed: Set Home / Respawn at own structures does not work
    - Fixed: flares in structures not showing up

    ====

    Patch 2020-10-08 v1.2 (Build 3129)

    Changes:
    - Renamed the new asteroid rings around planets from AsteroidFieldRing to AsteroidRingPlanet, keeping the old AsteroidFieldRing instance
    - GrassV2: better check for abrupt steep slopes
    - Asteroids Rings: adjusted ring texture slightly, supporting now color grading (in yaml specifiy either "color1" or "color1 - color2"), visible from planet, playfield server now generates correct colliders around all players
    - Asteroids Rings: bigger size, allow to specify the color in the playfield.yaml under Properties, default color is grey
    - AsteroidRings: slightly higher distance to planet of inner ring, taking two random colors if nothing specified in yaml
    - AsteroidRings: desaturized random ring colors a bit, increased visible near distance of dust from 50m to 150m, improved fade in of asteroids
    - AsteroidRings: tinting asteroids according to ring color, asteroids got a bit bigger to avoid vessels getting stuck on colliding
    - AsteroidRings: increased visible near distance of dust even more from 150m to 200m, asteroids get now position above or below dust to not cut into it, higher visible distance for smaller asteroids
    - MP: structure updates are now sent every 3s instead of only 5s to show f.e. shield update state in MP faster
    - Optimization: all turrets in all structures don't do any target raycasting any more if they are switched off in CP
    - GrassV2: allowing now Flower01 and other cross planes in a much higher number, scaling xz also with half y if specified
    - GrassV2: increased number of possible instances from 2.5k to 30k

    - Creative mode: default-deactivated CPU (CPU and m/v can be activated via console > use 'help gopt' for more info)

    - Added: Flamethrower and Ammo to some Traders and Loot Tables

    The usual lovely laundry list-like patch notes, weren't you guys supposed to have stopped developing the game and scammed us all???;-)

    Thanks a bunch and also thanks to the Community people who contributes with very cool POIs, it's always nice to explore a new POI, especially those well made.

    Thank god, I can't tell you how many times I've looted POIs and have gotten multiple empty ultra rare containers.

    Will you guys ever add a 'pvp check' to non-friendly vessels that cause the 'ship cannot move because there is an undocked vessel in your ship' bug? This has been exploited in pvp since A6 and has never been fixed and has caused massive amounts of griefing. People in SVs can just ram their SV into your CV (or fly into your hangar) to completely disable it.

    I'd rather give the CV the ability to clip through the SV or have the SV auto-teleported out a few hundred meters away from the CV if this ever happens or just get rid of the ship encumbering limitation and just have any undocked vessels bounce out of the ship. An ant shouldn't be able to cause an elephant to fall to the ground.

    Started a new game, and it seems like changes made space combat harder. I was used to being trouble free in space, but this time as soon as I made into space all zirax craft started attacking relentlessly. My bare minimum cargo cv torn to shreds. It seems like combat craft from the beginning is a necessity now.

    This seems to be unable to give info on published blueprints. I guess it isnt able to exclude the __ID part of the name.

    Well, there is still a lot to fix, I could go underground to the drone base and underneath in 3rd person locate the core and destroy it, also the Burial Chamber works as if there was no core. I think this game would gain a lot with better graphics, more textures, more variety of bugs and above all better animations. Greetings.-

    Please report this in the bug forum. It seems to be a bug that pops up every other version. :D

    Does anyone know if they are going to improve the signal system? It would be awesome if all devices had a tx signal so you can connect screens to specify their condition. It would especially good to see for shield, you would see the if the shield on or off just looking a screen(or a hologram) in bridge.

    I'm waiting for them to improve the crosshair so I can play the game again.....
    I've given up on the game for now as there is not much point if I can't see the minute crosshair in the heat of battle and I can't see where I am shooting....

    When I saw this, I thought "Great!"
    I was really tired of the opaque green that blotted out almost everything, leaving me rather disoriented and unable to determine whare or what i was looking at. When I checked, I accidently clicked SI and thought "Yes! Thank you!" Then I realized my mistake and found the same old ssolid green mass.

    1. What was the wrong visualization?
    2. Didn't airtight visualization look like SI in the beginning?
    3. Couldn't it look that way again?

    I believe I saw this "wrong Visualization" ... green floating balls like the rhomboids of the O² IIRC.

    It was hard to spot the leak with that visualization in ships with complex geometry.

    Maybe it's me, but I'm not seeing any of these new rings. Just to see how cool the rings are, backed up my save and warped around looking for a planet with a ring. Nothing. Then I started a new game, spawned a CV and started checking planets. At this point have used over 300 pentaxid and visited over a dozen solar systems and all planets therein...nothing. Are they rare? I've seen a few planets with an asteroid ring, but nothing as pretty as any screenshot in patch notes. The attached pic is closest I've seen. Found a flamethrower last night after I went back to the original save, so the update stuck in some regards. Also have validated game files with steam, updated video driver and even went as far as uninstalling and reinstalling the game. Ideas?
