    Hi Galactic Survivalists!

    With update 1.8.5 we have not only fixed numerous bugs and added new features (see changelog below!).

    With 'Stranded at Nemesis' we have also added a new scenario for you to play and have fun with. This is specifically a small survival challenge that we would like to offer you as a change: You start on a destroyed UCH ship and have the task to rejoin the fleet. How you do that is up to you, because there are several possible ways. ;) We are curious to see how you master the challenge! Please use the following feedback thread: https://empyriononline.com/threads/scenario-stranded-at-nemesis-survival-challenge.100395/

    We are looking forward to your feedback - on the scenario and on further updates!

    2022-08-01 v1.8.5 B3859


    Changes:

    - Added Scenario: 'Stranded at Nemesis' is a WiP challenge scenario available from the scenarios menu.

    - Added Asteria Destroyer (Thanks to jrandall) to new SaN scenario https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1780720140
    - DialogueSystem: added new database variable 'dbplayerpoipos_int' that can be used f.e. on traders in a POI and it will preserve its value even after the POI did regenerate
    - Done 00276: Added new PdaDataOp "DeactivateCurrentChapter"
    - Added more quality settings for Screen Space Reflections and Shadow Quality
    - Updated: Fully rebalanced (destroyable) deco rocks. Hitpoints and Crushed Stone drop are now based on their approximate default-size volume & size. (Note that the same model sized larger via playfield_dynamic config will not provide higher HP and will not drop more crushed stones); Please report rocks that are not destroyable/seem to have wrong values with screenshot + info about planet and biome name!
    - Updated: Updated all new (and some old) deco plants/trees with proper HP values & drops related to HP and appearance of model (Fiber/WoodLogs) (Part 1)
    - ExecuteOnActivate code is now also called when accessing blocks using logistics.
    - Changed: Quest missions are not deleted after leaving a planet anymore
    - Changed: Tales of Tash logs you found, can now be read on the Academy network-consoles in some POI of the moons with the ‘Private User History’ option (when available)
    - Changed: technical change to make quests more reliable
    - Changed: quests do not mark their location automatically anymore (the quest info has all details where to find them, though)
    - Changed: Robinson Protocol starts with a “pick up and read” list when accepted to give a better direction.
    - Changed: Robinson Protocol prompt to build a shelter is now triggered at sunrise at the first “morning” after you set up your first Portable Constructor the day before
    - Changed: PDA item no longer drops on crashsite (Info about HUD added to new PDA-mission list complete message)
    - Changed: AssaultCyborgDamaged now uses SMG instead of long range laser rifle
    - Changed: Slightly reduced amount of Corndog bushes in crashsite area on Skillon
    - Changed: Added more (dangerous) enemies to Skillon (removed Megalonopses)
    - Changed: Collection Point logic changed (removed Admin Core. Placed more loot)
    - DISCLAIMER: All changes made to Skillon will not apply in an ongoing savegame! New start on Skillon is required to see the changes!
    - Added: Scraper POI added to Skillon (thx to Fractalite)
    - Added Skillon Academy network console content
    - Added help for retrieving all tales of tash logs (usable from the Academy network consoles ‘Private User History’ options)
    - Added message when Digsite Terminus is activated
    - Added ‘conclusion summary’ message when all 16 Tales of Tash logs are found. (Can also be re-read in the Log archive and in the consoles!)
    - Added a few more infected warriors to Digsite Terminus to make the POI a little more interesting
    - Added a turret robot to lower level of Supply Bunker
    - Added: Pirates crashed vessel (prepare for Quest Lines on Skillon)
    - Added: occasional FireRain weather effect added to Skillon
    - Added PDA Action parameter "EndData" - if used that action (when completed) ends the game (with a fullscreen end picture and sound)

    Rare loot containers at POI's not working correctly. When you open them they show your ships inventory or some other devices inventory.

    Normal loot containers and storage controllers at POI's show either my ship's inventory I last accessed or some other storage container in the facility and no loot in the container.

    Only way to get the loot is to find the core and destroy it if it is even allowed for that POI.
    Then have to destroy the loot container and wait for the item drop container to show up so can loot it.

    Nice update, congrats, I'm looking forward for your new scenario, thank you!

    "Fixed: plants and trees could be salvaged with survival tool"

    Does this mean that now the Chainsaw will be your only option early in the game? That's cool because it was rather useless before, now the chainsaw makes full sense.

    New textures for the shadows is all off. Shadows where the light is hitting directly and also messing with the color scheme because of it. Tried changing them and tried off doesn't change it. Giant wedge shadow that follows me on the ground. Too much haze with spotlight/flashlight obscures everything in view rather than illuminating. Colors on the ships are all wrong now, even newly built. Paint gun shows blank for all the textures.

    well not so cool, the updated trashed the save game, i reinstalled the machine, reinstalled the server via steam client, via steamcmd on a different machine and nothing, the server is not coming back again, even a clean install does not work anymore.

    See here under "Some players have reported a startup issue with this message that can be seen in the client log:
    "DllNotFoundException: SQLite.Interop.dll" or "Failed to load SQLite.Interop.dll"
    https://empyriononline.com/threads/troubleshooting-guide.98133/#post-322485


    For anything to do with EAH post here https://empyriononline.com/threads/tool-eah-empyrion-admin-helper-v1-59-x.5771/

    Looks like oxygen is removed from all areas around windows. See that the O2 in the bottom left is greyed out even though there are O2 blue diamonds all around me.

    When I step back a full block away from the window, I am fine (i.e. 1 block away from the window)

    Had exact same issue - for me it was fixed after I verified the local files in Steam (had to reacquire like 44 files I think).

    Was really enjoying myself for the last 200 hours then this weird lighting bug has completely ruined the game for me If there is no fog why in gods name would you make it so we can't see anything anymore.. Lights on sv,cv and armour is completely useless now so you can only go out in the day time now AND even then if you use your lights you get fog during the day like What the ?? Way to nerf the game. off to find something else I guess.

    Creative mode seems to be in a state of decay.

    The heavy window color/texture issue seems fixed but now the color textures of lights and spotlights are broken. Also having trouble now with the display of preview images of certain parts (heavy windows for instance) in creative prior to placement.

    The bump map global factor was perhaps set way too high?

    When using the parallax Occlusion Mapping set to high, the quality of textures actually degrades, rather than increasing the aesthetic value..

    Additionally most textures seem to have aquired a glossy film. Some textures you wouldn't expect to have a glossy sheen, such as rough metallics, look to be laminated.

    As well, the glow value of emissive light textures is almost negligible now.

    Cheers.

    Lol, I tried the new scenario. All was going well as I got the ship in a liveable state before venturing forth. I'd patched a few holes, disassembled non-critical components for resources and gained a decent stock. Then, suddenly, the ship is taking fire, the Generator taken out in the first volley. Looking around I see several Drones shooting Plasma at me and a Zirax Capital Vessel...think I'm screwed lol.

    Gonna load up with stuff and bail...hopefully I can get to the planet in time... and not go splat...station too far away to get to without freezing...

    ... Heh, I landed on the planet, seemingly touching down softly. Stood there for a second or two and was thrown into the 3rd person view and died. I think I will start this scenario over.

    Btw: why is there no reload option from the Respawn screen? Do I really have to exit the game and relaunch in order to load a save? That's silly.

    Edit: Game mentions salvaging stuff to make a basic vessel to get to the Station or Planet. However, there's simply not enough salvageable material on the ship. While maintaining a liveable environment with working constructor, fridge, food processor etc. I've gathered a grand total of NINE carbon substrate. That's not enough for the require Nanotubes...well, I might be able to bodge it with a single-thrustered "escape pod" type SV built from scratch, but the game suggests I use the Factory (exploit exploit! lol) to have it build a prefab SV. NONE of the basic prefab SV's can be built - not enough materials by far - and relying on the player to have already created a super basic SV just for this scenario... well, that's not ideal.
