    Changes:

    - Changed: Sigma Fulcrum approach dialogue now points towards speaking to traders instead of barkeepers (only speaking to traders will advance the search for Yarod)

    Fixes:

    - Vessels stop moving when close to POI's (which don't render) & the player toolbar becomes unresponsive until relogging
    - Ambassador Hyzanis vessel did not spawn in asteroid field
    - Issues of dialogues in GERMAN loca sometimes leading to a CoQ/Exception
    - Thruster M (T2) only had 100 HP
    - Issues in dialogues config and csv leading to exceptions
    - TSO_Variant2 had alien spawns (now "same as base")
    - Spice plant model no longer flattened after harvest (SpeedTree material issue).
    - Upd: Removed Abyssal Small Science vessel from spawngroups for now.
    - Items crafted in the survival constructor don't get stacked in the output cells
    - LCD Projector shows a background even if no color set (while structure is powered)
    - Token CustomIcon does not work anymore

    Maybe you are misunderstanding?

    They didn't make it so workshop scenarios can't be used in coop.
    They fixed a bug where sometimes they couldn't be used.

    If scenarios had a specific set of files before, and were uploaded to the workshop, they wouldn't work in coop. The devs fixed that bug in this update and they now work again.
    If your scenario worked before then it wasn't affected.
    They didn't disable anything they fixed something.

    We need a use case to look at without that I'm afraid there isn't much we can really do to address this.

    HWS is a modified server, not vanilla.
    I'm afraid you will have to reproduce this in vanilla, with complete reproduction steps, in order for the devs to look into it.

    If you are unable to reproduce it in a 100% vanilla game they will assume it's the custom configs/mods causing it and it won't be looked into.

    Yes, I know. That is why it is posted as an observation, not a bug report. It also happens on Spanj's RE server but again modified and started in 1.3 just like HWS NA.

    today one of my CVs on HWS RE went bouncing about when I logged in. As far as I know, HWS RE started with 1.4.

    Point 1 and 2... Means this that demolition charges are not longer suitable to destroy the shield on Drone Bases POIs? Was this intended?

    I ask this because the past Sunday I was trying my classic technique of digging a tunnel under the Drones Base POIs and breakthrough with demolition explosives, and after this patch, it is not longer possible, even the explosion of the demolition charges is not displayed any more, the explosives simply disappear with no explosion, and no damage is registered either to the shield itself or the blocks.

    In order to take the Drones Base POI I had to use a HV + plasma turrets from inside the tunnel, I had to build a tunnel of the size of a motorway to take down the POI shield and make a breach.

    Guys, sincerely, how do you take over these Drones Bases now? CVs weapons do not work on planet surfaces, SV weapons do not have the power, except the artillery cannon, maybe, but it is slow reloading and the POIs shield is again at full after each reload, and you are exposed to enemy fire meanwhile. What are we supposed to need for this? an ICBM?

    I haven't played in a couple of months, you should take a look at some these tanks people have made. Jrandell has a really good one that I have used. It will take down the shields. You will take some damage (mileage will very depending on how well you dodge incoming fire), but it's doable.
