    Changes
    - Increased Light blocks maximum ranges. Now 5m, 10m, 20m, 40m ranges are available.
    - Increased distance light from spotlight blocks are visible from (doubled the distance)
    - Added: Audio Options effects volume slider and "Reset to Defaults" button
    - Added sensor option: "Detect non-piloted vehicles", useful for motion sensor controlled doors
    - DroneBay: Speed up launch / landing process added in file BlocksConfig with the parameter "ADBDockingSpeedFac" + increased detection range to 1000m
    - Added stationary hoverbike variants as pickup/for transportation use on some starter playfields mission hubs (Ningues, Masperon, Skillon and Ashon Moon; Note: applies to not-yet-visited playfields & new savegames only); Also available at some traders (Bertrams, Interweap, Servant Corp & Aunt Marys )
    - Changed: due to popular demand, removed all Omicron locks and limitations ;) (Only applies to new savegames).
    - Changed: removed Abyssal drones from Masperon to avoid ruining REP and reduce confusion. ( note: the free roaming drones are kept, but they are in the ALIEN faction anyways) (Only applies to new savegames)

    - Bad Wolf (Masperon): added Marker for where to find Commander Ezzren after talking to Ikkenz (Only applies to new savegames)
    - Deserted Powers (Skillon): adde guidance after having spoken to the Guard to better find the captain and oltimer for starting the mission (Only applies to new savegames)

    THANK YOU for the Cut Corner B mirror block.

    I've seen some improvements in the new 2-radius rounded block set but there are still some issues which I'll do a bug report on

    It would be great if the same was done to the light source of Portable Heater/Cooler.

    There were restrictions on using the blueprint factory to construct vehicles on the planet or taking your own vessel down from space- previously the only way down was to use a code locked teleporter in the space station (code available from an NPC on the station) or making a HALO jump to the surface- free fall from space and jazz the jetpack right before you hit the ground.

    Just some clarity for those who like me were/are wondering (this is from my testing, I don't know if this was as intended).

    What I've tried: (motion sensor is mounted on a CV)
    • Flew CV into sensor area, no response. Got out of cockpit, sensor triggered. Left sensor area, sensor stopped. CV was still in sensor zone. The setting made no change to the sensor's operation.
    • While in a SV/HV, if the above setting wasn't set the vehicle would trip the sensor, but if the player left the area the sensor would reset. When the setting was enabled the sensor would stay tripped when the player left the sensor field.
    I guess the issue I have is how/when would this be useful? I'm just not "getting it"...
    (and I'd rather see sensors trigger on CVs like SV/HV so large hanger doors could be used without jumping through control panel hoops)
