    Summary
    This week we added turrets for small ships. There are currently two types: gatling and missile. Additionally, we have applied several improvements that will optimize the performance of ship destruction and turrets, allow more moving ships in a server, and also stabilize constraints and collisions. We also added a pirate raiding carrier that will approach its nearest enemy and spawn light attack drones. Eventually it will leave on its own. But keep in mind, there is a large but well protected treasure hidden inside it! Moreover, we implemented more encounter ships from workshop creations. Thanks a lot to JD.Horx for his IMDC faction fleet! More additions will continue in the future. Last but not least, the exploding landing gear issue has been fixed! We are sorry that it took us so long, but we are happy that it’s finally solved and we hope that it won’t destroy your creations any more :)

    EDIT 09/28/15:
    Hey guys,
    The last update introduced requested fixes such as performance improvements and exploding landing gear, but unfortunately it also introduced some new bugs for a number of players.
    Due to the upcoming release of Planets the Space Engineers universe is undergoing lots of changes behind the scenes and some things may not work as expected.
    We share the frustration with you and are very sorry for the issues that appeared after the last update and we are aware that the performance improvements didn't work for everyone.
    These issues are our main priority and the team is working on fixes around the clock to make gameplay and building experience as smooth as possible for everyone.
    Thank you for your patience and amazing support. Keep the comments flowing and report any issues you have in our forums here:

    Performance!?

    omg that sand... Look at that sand texture! Look at that skybox! Makes me thirsty...

    As for the patch... could we get this turret model for Large Ships, please? The old one sticks out like a sore thumb and the Small Ship version of this patch is gorgeous. (Oh, and that Pirate Carrier looks cool!)

    Fourth! WOOT!

    Small ship turrets.....useful, especially with drones. The drone carrier adds flavor. More Exploration Ships/Encounters keep things interesting. The performance fixes are alright. And the planet teaser is pure epic-ness! But lets be honest here, these are chump change compared to one thing.

    YOU FIXED LANDING GEARS?!?!?!

    Thank you, Devs. Merrry Patchmas to all and to all a good night!

    Yay, it's here.

    Pretty convincing video of the landing gears being fixed.

    Does anyone still doubt that they are addressing MP concerns now?

    LANDING GEAR FIX!!!!! MULTI SHIP PERFORMANCE!!!
    I like the progress here :pbjt:


    Also, on another note:
    Not to discredit the great creations of Skinface, but isn't he a dev for KeenSWH? It's just a bit misleading that they post a link to the workshop like devs selected a random user creation, when in fact one of their own people's designs. It's a legit and great design, and I'm not complaining, just stating.
