    Agreed as well. I'm already past the "ooh, shiny!" stuff and now I want to start digging into those asteroids and building stuff the hard way. =)

    Nice update. Now all we need is a proper way to import/export ships and I can retire my tool and do all the stuff in-game.

    Nice update rhythm! The fact it works between world-saves... The dynamic-paste to me, counts as game-play! Not the one expected, but epic god-like destruction on editor mode. What's not to like? Got to test that performance now!

    Leafspring,

    Just in case you didn't find out yet, you can copy and paste a ship from one world to another.
    I wouldn't call it the most 'proper' of ways to import/export ships (what if you want to import a whole fleet for example) but its functional :)

    Thanks, I didn't know that. Not yet full import/export functionality but it's a start.

    Man its almost like kerbals was when it first started all these awesome little but very useful updates coming out seemingly weekly or so, but then there well be a point when we well have to wait awhile I believe for huge updates of course but still totally sweet love what they did with beacons that is so useful no more testing ships at full speed and getting lost and what about that copy and paste thing man i'm gonna try it out now does anybody know if that's for small ships only? :) oh and how do you copy and paste a ship into another save do you copy it in game then load a new game and paste?

    It will be good if we can , in the futur, enable/disable all the beacons we meet in the world somewhere in the "K" menu. To rename and show anyone we want

    Performance got better... I can paste my huge ship four times, and... well, lags as much as with one (projectors and those nifty dynamic lights, you know...). But I could paste into one save ALL my ships.

    am I the only one that this new copy and paste tool is driving crazy?.... like why did they have to use control c? every time when I am constructing my ship I am holding ctrl and shift (or just ctrl to place multiple blocks) and I keep hitting c to lower myself and its just driving me crazy every time I have to wait for the new copy to load...:mad: im begging you please give me an option to change this.... its maddening

    may have already been mentioned, but can you guys give the beacons a range? that way, we can do like real world ocean beacons where you have a long line to follow to your destination (without spamming your UI with beacon trackers). also would be nice, when mp comes out, if we could limit their visibility to other players/factions, or control them remotely

    Beacons are nice, but I need a radar to find some of my lost ships.

    I think a few others have mentioned it, but it would be nice to be able to name beacons and filter them. Like maybe have a key that toggles shown beacons between All, Small Ships, Large Ships, and Stations. Also it would be cool if the player could open a nav interface and select a beacon from a list and the HUD would only display that marker. Is it planned to be able to display a beacon teamwide instead of to everyone?
