Update 01.040

Pistons have been added in Space Engineers - they can be used to build advanced machinery. Also, faction founders and leaders can now enable auto-approval for new members. Players will now be able to see a notification on HUD when somebody is hacking/grinding their ship (does not apply to armors). Thrusters can be used without cockpit - through the terminal - which enables the option to create missiles with warheads, turret countermeasures, small drones which grind enemy ships by using grinder and other. Blast door blocks has been also added in the game; it's similar to armor, but thinner, so it can slide between two layers of armor (very useful for airtight door and hangar bays).

People write they would like to see netcode updates...

I've just realized, we've optimized netcode for creating floating objects: explosions in asteroids, throwing out items from inventories/ejectors/connectors, destroying cargo containers and possibly drilling ...this now uses much less network bandwidth [smile] (multiple created objects are now batched into one network packet, information transferred per object was also reduced)

We're optimizing biggest network issues first and creating floating objects was one of them even though it may seem unimportant.
