    DelayBeforeSelfDestructionMinMax: [200, 250]  #[Min time before self destruction, Max time before self destruction] defines the boundaries of a randromly drawn delay of time. It represents the time in second before the vessel will self destroy itself after beeing immobilized; Default time value is 300 second

    Can you give more detail ?

    We are aware of an issue only affecting MP currently with blast damage not working correctly which will be addressed asap.

    How does it work? Or is it the way that is in the game since several build numbers via the ItemsConfig.ecf?

    Good question, because we could already modify stack size in the previous versions, so I'm curious to know what this means. @Pantera does this mean that we can now freely add the "stacksize" parameter to custom items even if the class/ category did not allow it previously ? In other words, can we no w stack everything if we want by just adding that parameter to items or blocks ?

    This is about using the dialog to mod it via player skills (or API mods perhaps).

    So now you can give players a skill that changes the max stack size of specific items.

    The new patch has decreased the damage of the blast from artillery cannons and other guns for cv's, when firing a full set of cannons you only dish out a little amount of damage destroying 1 block instead of around 5 - 10. Hope this was helpful to resolve this problem.

    Thank you for reverting that behavior. If it is intended to change this in the future from a game-balance perspective please give us a little more head's-up to prepare for it.

    Here is a funny little thing. We play RE and after yesterdays patch something happened to the ITEM ID table, and ships that had a RE specific weapon, suddenly had something else there after server restart. So the item IDs have changed for the non vanilla items.
