    Hello, Engineers!
    This week we've optimized the memory use when buildings are collapsing, which also helps the performance on servers a little bit for small destruction cases. We tackled many of the edge cases causing foliage to 'blink', these were caused by minor slowdowns causing them to skip a frame, this made the foliage disappear for one frame which looked like they were blinking. We also enabled Structural Integrity view in Creative Multiplayer, and we updated the advanced weapons quest, it now has a proper notification and also accepts iron and steel crossbows. Finally, on the modding side of things, we have repaired the parallel interface in the ModAPI, so you modders out there can write code that runs parallel too.

    Enjoy the update!


    General Changes:
    - Updated server-side handling of broken blocks to reduce memory footprint.
    - Resolved many edge cases causing foliage to blink while flying around the world.
    - Enabled Structural Integrity view for Creative multiplayer.
    - Updated the advanced weapons quest in the military tech tree.

    Crash Fixes:
    Fixed a rare crash that occasionally prevented dedicated servers from starting up.

    Modding Changes:
    - Restored parallel interface for ModAPI.

    Thanks Keen, it seems like it's safe again to play survival! Maybe I'll even find the courage to play on a public server.

    Hello to the Keen Software Developers,

    I have literally just started playing this game over the past week or two and am really enjoying myself.

    Quick question, have you updated the patch notes in-game yet because, in-game it is showing as 0.6.2 Patch 6 - Minor Update dated 20.02.2018 even though steam is showing a download today (27.02.2018) of about 5.6MB, the version number at the bottom-right of the screen is, does that mean that I do, in fact, have the latest update.

    Just to double-check I did verify the integrity of the game files on steam and that seemed ok.

    Keep up the great work :)

    Oops, thanks for the heads-up. :) I forgot to set it to public.
