    May I ask what does that mean and how the player can test this? If possible of course.

    I found some info here https://sqlite.org/wal.html

    I can see this fixing and preventing a lot of new CoQ issues and improve performance, especially with multiplayer or co-op, as this is the sort of feature that makes their internal database a lot more like the massive databases run by massive online applications being used by many concurrent users.

    While I am definitely not happy about calling the game 1.0 rather than beta 1.0, this update is an excellent sign that things are heading in the right direction.

    Now, if you guys can start working on gameplay stuff as well, like the NPC AI being inferior to that of most 20 year old games, ships getting stuck inside each other, and multiplayer-specific instability, even the loudest critics of leaving Early Access and going 1.0 will start to be impressed.

    Indeed. I played the game a couple of hours since the last update and it feels smoother and, I am not sure for that if it had to do with the patch, it even looks better in the eye with my current video settings (that were not changed). So it feels and looks better.

    Brilliant, guys! Thanks for your dedication.

    I have more than a hundred games in my Steam library and Empyrion surely is one of the top 5 for me since the beginning. My only complaint would be that enemies appear to cheat when firing at you, especially turrets. Haha. Aimbot bastards!

    And about the collision issues someone mentions, try playing Ark. :D
    It's a fun fun game but dinosaurs get stuck everywhere.

    Yes. SQLite will now only commit changes when the transaction ends there is a checkpoint (not often as writing every single change to the db file) and will not write to the database file while a transaction is running which means less database file locks. I'm not sure how it treats energy interruptions ( I don't know SQLite's recovery model) as if the server reboots but I feel this is rare in MP games, right?

    Also the in-memory writes - as they mentioned they are now trying - may significantly improve things since modifications/writes will be loaded to RAM, AFAIK.

    Incorrect. It allows you to roll back to previous major versions. They don't support minor version changes there.

    Because they don't let you roll back to the first version of alpha 12 for instance only the last version. You gave him the wrong answer and now you are doubling down for reasons? If you cared about actually helping the guy you could even go on Steam literally right now and see there is no way to roll back to 1.0. Please stop spreading misinformation because you are lazy.
