    Update 01.024 - It’s raining meteorites in Space Engineers!

    In this update, we have added environmental hazards – meteor storms (safe, normal, cataclysm, Armageddon). You should find ways to protect your character and your creations.
    Also, you can now apply colors on more types of blocks and disable crosshair. We also made game fonts more legible.



    Features
    - environmental hazards – protect your character and your creations from meteor storms (Safe, Normal, Cataclysm, Armageddon)
    - more types of blocks can be colored (large and small ship thrusters, antenna, pillar, catwalk, stairs, ore detector, passage, windows, door - except the moving parts which is temporary not possible)
    - crosshair can be disabled in Game Options
    - game fonts are now more legible

    Fixes
    - fixed character leaving the cockpit when it's destroyed
    - fixed music issue in main menu

    EDIT 04/04/14: version 01.024.011
    - fixed quickstart (it was launching Survival instead of Creative)

    Nice. I'd like to see conveyors next, also more types of hazards, and why these meteors burns? We know that asteroids aren't flying trough atmosphere, so...

    Yay for more colors! Hazards are always a welcome addition as well, though not sure about the fire trails. On one hand, at least you can see them coming then, on the other, looks a bit odd in space.

    And I have no way of moving all cargo from my large ship to asteroid base because it'll take a whole day of real time.
    I'd say I won't enable meteors yet anyway.
    Plus it already makes afk servers not viable. We need some sure, but hard way of protecting ourselves against it.

    Aw man, the meteors are rad, and would be cool if...

    WE HAD WORKING TURRETS TO SHOOT THEM DOWN.


    Right now this hazard will be mostly off, because players won't have a way to defend against it :U
