    Summary
    Hello, Engineers! This week we are bringing Cyrillic support back into the game. We also found out why deer were sometimes not dropping loot, and as an encore, we also fixed some other problems with the lootbags.



    Features
    - Deer drop loot once again. Additionally, lootbags no longer inherit parent velocity, and no longer collide with characters. This should prevent loot bags flying off into space.
    - Return of the Russian font! You can now chat once again.

    Fixes
    - Made the mod status in the setup mods list more friendly to colour blind people.
    - Added tooltips to weapons and tools, they now tell you what they are for.
    - Fixed several screens having incorrect GUI layout or missing tooltips.
    - Fixed the mod list on the server info panel not sorting alphabetically.
    - Fixed an issue where listboxes would not scroll to the last element.
    - Fixed the compound dummy for the arrow slit center.
    - Fixed the duplicate icon for herb and flax seed bags.
    - Fixed some duplicate key binding issues.
    - Fixed even more crashes!

    Modding
    - Updated MyCubeGrid.OnIsStaticChanged callback to include the CubeGrid as parameter.
    - Added MyApiGateway.Multiplayer.OnChatMessageReceived handler that can be used on servers to intercept chat messages and parse them before sending them to others. Useful for things like chat based configuration!

    Update 0.5.6.E34320:
    - Fixed an issue where the DS could crash trying to play sounds. Oops! :)
    - Fixed a mistake in loot generation sometimes generating no loot for NPCs despite their definitions.
    - Fixed shelves not taking iron ingots anymore.

    Old version available until tomorrow as a branch called pre_hotfix.

    I am very pleased about how stable and fast .5 is now. I never had much crashes but some slowdown and lag after 0.5. Now it seems to run as smooth (or better) as 0.4

    Also thank you Deepflame for your personal mod-support and time! We are working on it :) Texturing for this directX stuff is way to complicated...

    Having played the new release enough to die ( fell off my own damn ramparts!!!! ) the new loot-bag stuff works really well. Made a pleasant change to find the loot-bag where I landed :)

    Deer Deepflame, I'd like to ask you. Could you please update your Roof Tile Slope Window and Double Windows plugins to the latest version of the game? Thank you for your reply and have a nice day :)

    People have been asking for this for a while. We'll take a look at them and figure out what we're going to do with them.

    Thanks a lot for the answer, maybe an idea, you could add them to the game as new blocks, I think a lot of people would appreciate this.
