This week’s update comes with our first part of render optimisations. These are smaller optimisations which are mainly being released as preparation for the upcoming redesigned blocks but you may see some improvements in FPS even with the current models and textures. An important note for modders is that large parts of the renderer was completely rewritten so this will require some mods to be updated. We realise that changes like this can be very frustrating for modders but we want to assure you that these changes are needed for long term optimisation plans. The render team has written a guide with what needs to be updated and you can find this guide on steam/our forums. Regarding visual scripting, campaigns, missions and scenarios using the tool can now all be published on the Steam Workshop. Lastly, we added an ambient occlusion setting in the graphics options. Bugs fixed this week include stations becoming dynamic when copying and pasting them, connectors not being locked on server restart and many block mirroring issues. We also reduced the amount of memory leaks, especially ones that would occur on the reload of worlds.
