    Summary
    The ship navigation and autopilot options have been improved. Players can now assign up to 9 actions for one waypoint. Also the actions can be assigned in patrol and circle mode. Moreover, there is a new option to reset the waypoints. Once the ship reaches its destination it is possible to press reset and the autopilot will start again from the original waypoint.
    Lastly, we have added the option to remove voxels by using the terrain auto-level voxel-hand tool.



    Features
    - improved ship navigation
    - added the erasing functionality to terrain auto level voxel hand
    - example workshop worlds with docking procedures:

    Nice! Expected we would get VOIP but that is okay. I can tell the devs are working hard and we are getting close to planets and the new MP.

    Awesome!

    [edit]
    - fixed character moves uncontrollably while in jet-pack (aka death when exiting cockpit)
    - fixed autopilot overriding overridden thrusters
    better autopilot [turning is still bad though :/]

    OMG thank you so much for these changes I was hoping these exact changes happened this update.


    P.S can you change the jetpack swaying? when headbob is on It makes me nauseous, but turning headbob off makes the welder look... very sexual. Please.


    Anyways, great update.

    So, we can have a mining operation and a drone. We can mine and send the drone back to the base and have it come back for more ore...I guess I'll need to play around with the autopilot. A really good update, thanks Keen!

    Interesting update and few possibilities. Gonna stick with autopilot mod thought for now (more options)

    And I was sure we would get new models :D

    You mean 8th, right? :p
    If we dont count @Drui , if yes, then 9th :p

    Ok, I did not understand this one 100%. Does this mean, projector will not show blocks that can not be welder (are not touching already built blocks)? If yes, is that an option? If yes: DAAAAAAMN GUUUURRRRLLLL.

    Quite happy with what we got.
    Quite unhappy for the complete absence of DX11 improvements.

    Oh thank goddess for that one.

    Time to start discussing standardization of docking ports, waypoint setup and remote block placement in relation to docking ports. Who's got this?

    Also, concerned about not displaying non-buildable blocks on the projector. That'll make lining up first time projections that much harder if you cant see them.

    No fixes for mining issues?

    - Invisible walls
    - Massive Sim Speed drops when using large mining ships
    - Lag when leaving an asteroid after mining (caused by floating debris I think)

    Don't understand how you can neglect these issues, it would be like not being able to gather minerals in Starcraft. Mining is the primary source of materials in Survival, and one of the most fun aspects of the game. Please fix these issues.

    Good update otherwise, keep up the hard work.

    Did anyone notice the GPS-location labeled "Trader"? Is this a hint regarding some feature in development?

    This is a config option that can be turned on and off. This should help multiplayer servers where unpleasant players have modified a blueprint to be the size of the entire map and then projected it.

    Love the new projector option... was hoping that would happen. Now I won't get lost in a sea of projected blocks I can't weld.

    Was hoping for some DX11 fixes...I guess I'll just wait for the next update.

    The rest is pretty nice though.
