    Summary
    Bug fixing continues. This week we made changes that are improving the performance for solar panels in both DX9 and DX11 and also fixed the performance issue when the player was looking on window blocks and solar panels in DX11. Additionally, we fixed a long requested problem in the programmable block scripting.



    Fixes
    - fixed performance when looking on solar panels/windows [DX11]
    - fixed performance on solar panels
    - fixed armor blocks are not translucent in projectors
    - fixed corrupted world when saving in turret control
    - fixed programmable block crash caused by in-game script using 3D array
    - fixed crash when jumping with merge blocks close to each other
    - fixed "autopilot enabled" message when entering any cockpit
    - fixed issue with ore queue in full refinery
    - fixed issue in the blueprint screen auto-scrolls to the top
    - fixed pink texture on batteries [DX11]
    - fixed issue with small ship warheads appearing green from distance
    - fixed button panel emissivity reset when merging grids

    EDIT 09/04/2015:
    Update 01.098.009

    - fixed light blink interval slider does not respond to arrow keys
    - fixed programmable block loosing changes when alt-tabing
    - fixed collisions dealing almost no damage
    - fixed friendly cargo ships

    Dude.

    Dude.
    No seriously.
    Dude.

    The Fps.

    Like... I was scratching on 10 FPS in some areas and now i don't really get below 10, with a solid 15 to 20 now in former problem areas. NO WAY did they only fiddle around with windows. I mean sure, maybe i had a little memory leak before but... DUDE. DUDE.
    This update might just buy me the performance needed to complete the Primary Hull without dipping below 10 on average... need long-term memory leak testing..... SO MUCH TO DO

    I think it might have just been a slowed-down sound of a turret firing? The alarm klaxon slowed down too.

    I think I figured it out... the position of ships slightly changed, ships locked with landing legs had moved slightly inside the large ship they were connected too, when unlocking them they exploded huge...

    Also one small ship connected with a connector to the large ship automatically exploded.

    This is my survival world... everything is drifting everywhere.

    My face after loading my survival world...

    Not the bugfixes I was hoping for but bugfixes are always welcome, especially if they increase performance. Thanks

    Still waiting on DX11 skybox, although sometimes I wonder if they aren't fixing it because they are going to implement a more modern skybox techniques. Like star animation maybe...

    I wonder if they will be tackling pistons and/or rotors this round? Fingers crossed.
