    Summary
    The performance issues related to thrusters, turrets, rotors, sensors and rendering have been fixed. We’ve also applied several other bug fixes such as game crashes caused by landing gears. We’ve also updated the wheels so they behave more realistically - this is the first iteration and more improvements will follow in the next updates. Additionally, the character’s jump is now reflected more realistically according to the gravity strength. Lastly, we would like to thank all of you for helping our team by reporting issues that you find in the game. It is really very important for us! Sometimes things might not go as expected and bigger issues might appear, but you should know that we are always doing our best to fix everything on time and provide the best gameplay experience possible.

    Lol, that strange jump always bugged me! Thanks!

    EDIT: After seeing the video, I have a request. Please use the opening sequence to Also Sprach Zarathustra for the video when plants are released! There would be nothing more fitting for the occasion :cool:

    I expected great things :( i'm sitting at 10-12 FPS where i used to have 17-20. Admittedly it's better than the 7-9 i got before the patch but still... maybe next week.

    GG, WP, Keen!

    Do not worry, even if some of us may use harsh language to express frustration with bugs, it doesn't mean some of us may hate you.
    We love you and your creations and some of us just express that love very forcefully, strongly.
    I doubt any of us would like to see the someone or something we love hurt.
    Some try to make the pain go away, gently, by working to solve the issue; while others romp out, blinded by blood lust, wishing to make things right trough their iron will.

    Such is life as a human.
