    Again. They didn't "break" multiplayer, it was never fixed, it's just switching between two equivalent states of broken. They simply chose to revert to the broken state which was better understood. Just as many complaints were received about multiplayer for patch 1.033 as for the 1.034 revert, the difference is this time you are one of them, so you actually noticed it. In fact one of the comments I saw on the 1.033 multiplayer actually disparaged KSH, saying it shouldn't be possible to have multiplayer that was that badly broken without actively working for it.

    But yes, they are actively working on making a version of netcode that works for everybody, instead of having two that work for portions of the userbase with no overlap, and I'm eagerly looking forward to the results.

    What's the fun in that? ;]
    Besides not lagging everybody out with the massive processing overhead, anyway.

    I never said that they broke the MP Code... i know that it isn't finished in any state we know... but i guess you can understand my "frustration" if we change from *almost working* to *unplayable* and back to *something we understand but don't know how to get it stable*

    Don't think i'm crying or whining about our beloved alpha state game ^^ i love it but in fact i'm whining 'bout the toolbar...

    gimme back my toolbar, i want to create stuff! :bawl:

    Honestly the 1.033 code worked so much better for my friends and I. The lag when trying to cut apart a moving ship was pretty much gone and we were able to play a lot smoother. Going back to the old code brought back the lag for anyone not playing locally. It is near impossible to cut specific blocks on a moving craft now which is the biggest multiplayer gripe we've had. We understand it isn't finished and 1.034 added a lot of bugs for us that weren't in 1.033 most notably for us is not being able to use more than one block on the hotbar and ore falling through asteroids. I am really enjoying the additions with 1.034 though. Overall I really enjoy playing the game with my friends and have had a great time with some large group projects.

    Yeah, that occurred to me half way through my post, which is why the tone also changed half way through the post.

    People have disproportionately said "OMGWTF 1.033 Multiplayer was perfect, why did you ruin it?" enough that I might be jumping at shadows at this point...

    Apologies.

    I want simple bugs to not escape, like the light bars and the goddamn toolbar glitch.

    No, rails won't come.

    Rotors that transfer energy will come, with multiplayer fix and some other small updates, not to much I think

    I did, hence the summary "Power over rotors, improved landing gears & more".
    But as you have pointed out it's still showing the .034 build version in the bottom right corner....

    At least we now know what's coming.

    And if everyone done this, it would cause so much traffic for the site. Not exactly efficient. (Only if people set the refresh rate to a stupid interval mind you, 2 mins would be fine) Just be patient. Its usually not out till 6pm gmt time, and its not that yet.

    This is damn awesome. BTW, you can change the interval in the url of you want at the frequency selection is quite limited...
