    Summary
    We are currently entering a temporary feature freeze / bug fixing period in which we will focus mainly on fixing bugs and finishing existing features. The weekly updates will continue, but they’ll be focused on stabilization rather than on new features. The stabilization period will allow us to fix issues that have existed in the game for some time or appeared after recent features were implemented and improve the overall gameplay. More detailed info can be found on Marek’s latest blog post: http://blog.marekrosa.org/2015/08/stabilization-period-for-medieval_18.html
    The community’s support has been very helpful so far in identifying various issues and suggesting improvements. We thank you for this! Thus, we encourage all of you to use our bug report forums and help us find and solve issues that exist in the game (please remember to read the bug-report guide before you start posting).

    Additionally, we have boosted battery outputs and capacity to better match increased thruster requirements. We would also like to thank all the players who have been posting their feedback about balancing and tutorials. If any of you are interested in helping us, you can do so here: http://forum.keenswh.com/forums/feedback.423142/

    The battery update is very welcome! And I'm sure the DS people will be happy with the jump fix.

    I, uhh, could've lived with that one. :p

    They're just that good: they fix bugs before you're even aware of them. ;)

    Thanks for the update. Glad to see some stuff getting sorted out. I've been watching some people playing with the planet source code and everyone is crashing, even with adding multiple sets of additional thrusters. May want to try to get the balancing for that in well before the planets release so the people brave enough to play with the source can start figuring out what will be needed ahead of time. I still think an Anti-mass block is the best way to allow ships on/off planet as otherwise every ship is going to have a ton of downward thrusters. Just make em expensive in terms of energy cost.

    It would probably have been a smarter move to put that blog and screenshots in this week's update video to at least give us something interesting to look at. Can't say that in 2500 hours of play i have encountered a single one of the fixed bugs but the only good bug is a dead bug, so any bug squish is welcome in my personal book. (The list might also be incomplete.)

    Very pleased with the bug fixing. Hope to see more.

    I am very glad to see the "fixed turret not targeting character" bug fixed. I've seen that bug many times myself, both to my advantage and disadvantage.

    I don't quite have 2500 hours but my bug experience seems to be similar. I've never experienced 90% of the stuff they fixed. Although, it also seems they fix more than they list.

    Perhaps they are going to have a new "booster" engine to help ships get off planet? Who knows what we are in store for :)

    For an update with no real additions, makes me very, very happy. I'm excited for planets and all but I'd much rather have better performance and stability, particular in multi. That's the part that's preventing me from playing right now.

    Ewww.... No thank you. I hate the way artificial-mass blocks work and look. I've been really looking forward to planets because it means my ground vehicles will no longer need ugly glowing blocks on all the hubcaps. I've been designing planetary landers for months now, but I have tons of ships that CAN'T land on planets. They don't all need to. It's been more fun for me to build a fleet of specialized ships. My planned system has a large orbital facility that remains in space, refining everything. Meanwhile, there's a smaller planetary hauler that goes down to the surface, collects resources, and then returns to space.

    Shame to see the fix for exploding air tight hangar doors exploding when un-merging didn't make it into this weeks patch. Still so many ships we can't use for fear of ripping them apart.

    I hope they fix the mining waste ore bug next week, one when leaving the asteroid causes massive lag on system for a period of 1 or 2 minutes
