Hello Engineers! This week’s update contains a good amount of bugfixes. We fixed numerous crashes related to parallelization and other bugs fixed this week include ships with hydrogen thrusters slowly losing altitude, gatling turrets being unable to target anything directly above them and respawn ships spawning outside world limits. We are happy announce that we will be adding Arindel’s corner lights and corner lcds to the vanilla game. These blocks are very nice indeed and should be releasing in the next couple of weeks. Check them out now via the Steam Workshop: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=530693136 http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=611420971

We also give you a small sneak-peak into our improved drone AI which is being worked on at the moment - for example, drones can now strafe, use static weaponry and ship tools and target different grids/blocks/players. For now, this behaviour can only be activated and configured using visual scripting. In the future, we plan to have all drones, cargo ships and pirates in the game using this behaviour. You will also be able to mod your own behaviours. Using the visual scripting tool, you can have drones perform different tasks and follow waypoints when needed allowing them to navigate tight spaces. These are just some of the many possibilities that scenario creators will have at their disposal, so check out the update video!
