    Summary
    Camera block has been added - now you can see what is happening on different locations. Camera rotation and controlling ships through cameras will be added in the coming weeks. Additional workshop tags for mods have been introduced to make the orientation on workshop easier. It is also possible to make better production building mods. Now you can specify what blueprints are available to production building. It's possible to make production chains and production building tiers. As an example there's a new block 'Arc Furnace’, it is specialized building for iron ore refinement. It refines faster than refinery, it's more efficient and cheaper, but cannot refine anything other than iron ore. In addition to these new changes, we have redesigned the easy start 2 map, and rebalanced the cargo ships, adding new space engineers tech to them both. We have also made it possible to create a hostile identity in your world whilst in creative, this will allow people to make maps for others to play through, with the challenge of hostile ships and stations. Finally, render interpolation has been added as well that will make the game experience smoother. It is currently disabled by default since it is not completed 100%, but it can be turned on in video options.

    YES! good job

    Camera blocks! WOOT!

    More proof that you devs actually listen to the community. Solar panels, batteries, and now cameras! Now I can finally design that security camera setup in my ship that I've been itching to make.

    Is it weird that I started the game and freaked out a little because I didn't remember it was Thursday?

    HOW DID I NOT REMEMBER IT WAS THURSDAY!

    Wow, judging from the number of replies, this was released literally five minutes before I got out of bed.

    Nice job Keen! Another victory!

    indeed exciting! once you guys optimize multiplayer the new cargo ships will be fun to catch..

    unfortunately in the current state i can't even get close to any cargo ships on the dedicated server i play on because they rubber band back and forth about 10-20 meters at a time so its impossible to grind.. great for target practice though! lol cant wait to mess around with the arc furnace..

    Great job with the camera block :D

    Until now it wasn't clear if survival will have any kind of progression system at all, I guess the arc furnace answers that.

    I'm going to assume the camera block can be accessed remotely? It will be nice once hotbars can send remote commands.

    So you have started some optimization tricks very Intresting I like the idea. Also I like the way the cameras are going and now we can't capture any ship without a fight one question though did you add cams to the military transport's and mining hauler's hanger. Oh and one more thing what blocks have LOD on them.

    So this means we can actually have guided missiles with two players working them.

    Great update. Loving the camera, but being able to make things hostile is simply huge for me. Can finally test things whilst playing solo! Yayyyy

    Time to see how much smoother the game runs now I know it is still a WIP but I'm testing it anyway that's what I payed for.

    And this is just the beginning of the camera blocks too... The concept of remote control drones sounds like so much fun!
