    Changes:
    - We have changed the version of EasyAntiCheat that is being used to the Epic games version. With this change we need your help with checking it is working ok in MP for example:

    - Play for an hour or more again with no EAC kicks / disconnects

    - Added info about regrow of harvestable plants to 'Raw Food & Perish Time' message popup (picking plant protein)
    - Added info about placing terrain-placeables onto the toolbar before placing.
    - Added popup-message info of BA/HV micro tutorials also to the PDA > Action Description

    Fixes:

    - Color does not apply to deco console when whole block coloring option is enabled
    - Turrets rendering range is too low
    - Texture and color tool model does not reflect state after using Ctrl+RMB
    - Sentry guns do not take damage from direct hit damage

    Has the process for opting into the experimental beta changed? I don't see anything but the alpha 6-12 archives under the properties/beta drop down. Thanks!

    According to this thread, there should be an "Experimental - Unstable Test Branch", but I also do only get archived 6-12 Alphas… :oops:

    The experimental branch is removed when they push out the official stable release. This is to avoid people using old branches when they push out hotfixes to stable.
