Hello, Engineers! This week’s update contains more improvements to the overall game and modding. There’s now mirrored versions of wheels so you can have the tire tread facing the same direction on both sides of a vehicle. The texture of light and heavy amour has been updated, it should now look cleaner and less noisy. Most noticeably the tiling of corners and inverted corners is less noticeable as lines on the textures are softer. Additionally, merge blocks have been visually adjusted to match their air tight status and central blast door blocks have been tweaked slightly. Player character color will now remain the same upon respawn at a medical room which will prove especially useful in team-based multiplayer scenarios. Also, idle thrusters will cause damage to players and surrounding grids and when idle. We’re also adding better modding support for emissives. This means that you will be able to use whatever colour you like on functional blocks. For example, you could make a modded generator where the working state is purple. On the subject of emissives, damaged conveyor tubes will no longer emit any light so you know the exact block in your conveyor network that needs repair. In other news, the artists are still tweaking block models but some have started creating the visual elements of the HUD this week while programmers continue work on the implementation side. Meanwhile, the designers are looking into the balance and overall gameplay of survival and are preparing new scenarios. Ultimately though, stability, performance and multiplayer are still our biggest priorities.
