    It's happening!

    Are the inventory bugs squashed? I choose not to play until I stop losing materials randomly.

    Just wondering but is it possible to make a gravity shield of some sorts with the new spherical generator (or multiple of them)?

    FORGET IT DONNY, YOU'RE OUT OF YOUR ELEMENT!

    Nice catch though, haha. Maybe they did a sneak update for .044 and we need to hunt for the features!

    This looks great. The video title on youtube is wrong, though...

    The spherical grav gen was in the files already, just not activated as they weren't finished bugtesting it.

    Hmmm... I don't like the sound of that. They REALLY need to be fixed. Survival is simply broken at this point.

    If the MP fixes work I will probably cry a little bit with happiness.

    They know its a major issue now and it is being worked on. It should hopefully show up in a hotfix soon but I can't make any promises on it.

    As much as I love Survival, We can all still mess around with our now working rotors and such in creative, I suppose. No more self destructing everythings.

    I really hope that the multiplayer fixes work as advertised. Any time a bring along a complex ship it has self destructed in the past. Super excited about this!

    The game keeps getting better and better with each Alpha patch. Keep up the good work Keene!
