    Added the option of grouping items in the Control Panel - it helps you to control and manage multiple items and objects with only one click. Also added the “reverse” button for rotors and landing gears in the Control Panel.

    We also want to inform you that in the present we are focusing mostly on bug-fixing and stabilizing.

    Features
    - grouping items in Control Panel (this is a first work-in-progress version, keybinding will come later)
    - pause indicator is now visible in the Control Panel screen
    - added landing gear in Control Panel
    - added 'reverse' button to rotors in Control Panel (changes rotor direction)

    Fixes
    - fixed drill damage to character done twice (multiplayer)
    - fixed sounds when placing ship grinder
    - fixed weapons and tools in multiplayer
    - fixed mirroring issues with new blocks
    - improved explosions performance on ships and station
    - fixed turret particle effect visible when turret was not shooting
    - fixed Mod tools (mwmbuilder.exe)


    How to use grouping:
    1) Select the items you want to group (use SHIFT and CTRL as in windows explorer)
    2) Add the name on the right part of the screen
    3) Press “Save”

    Groups are visible on the top of the list with asterisks *Group*

    How to add/remove items:
    1) Click on the group
    2) Use CTRL to add/remove items
    3) Click “Save” (group will be overwritten)
    Note: when you change the name first and then click “Save”, you'll create a new group

    Landing gear in terminal:
    Landing gear is now featured in Control Panel
    You can group them and switch them separately
    Landing gear can now be disabled (it will stay locked/unlocked but unable to change state). This is useful when you don't want to switch all the landing gears by using 'P' key

    EDIT(05/09/14):
    <strong>Update 01.029.009
    Features
    </strong>- Added information about landing gear state to Control Panel

    Fixes

    - Fixed crash in cockpit
    - Disabled toolbar item can no longer be selected
    - Grinder can now grind the station
    - Fixed problem with changing game options
    - Cube builder is now not visible when you are using tools

    Awesome update. I'm at work right now, so I can't check this myself, but can anyone tell me if an item can be in two different groups at the same time?

    With the shift to bug fixing, does this mean you guys consider the game feature complete?

    thanks for the nice update.
    its time for grouping my lights, to switch the color all together to red if i need an alert.
    its good that the landinggears can be used in the control panel too, but whats about the warheads? (Arm/Disarm) i hope that will coming soon to make a self destruction in a better way without mistakes. :)
