    Summary
    Merry Christmas, Engineers!
    Today’s update will help you to better understand the creation of planets. With step by step guides you can create your own planet, play with its atmosphere and if you want to delve really deep, you can completely change the look and feel with new trees and even modifying the voxel materials. Are you missing the lava planet? Do you want to recreate planets from your favorite sci-fi movies? With these modding guides, now you can create any planet you want easily and effortlessly!
    We have also created some example planetary mods to help you get started. You can find the links to the example mods and guides below.

    Weee!!!!(I think)....Is that when it would just creep you along (shifting you in a random direction) without you actually moving any m/s; whenever you would get close to a small+large grid? Cus this happens to me alllllll the time...

    It could mean that or the fact that stuff was just breaking; I wish this was more precisely clarified.

    Happy Holidays!, Keen Community! ^_^


    *Edit; yeah, no.....It doesn't fix at all what I would think it means. I still have me shifting in the world when small ship is attached to a large one, I twitch away until I get at least 3 meters away then it stops, anything closer and I twitch-shift in a direction, depending on my orientation to it.

    Ha, was just watching X-files then saw a notification of this update. Extremely earlier, probably due to its small nature, but still great nevertheless.

    Like it!

    Why that? The scaling was a bit awkward. But it was a good idea. It helped me in some situations to be able to tone down the attraction power.

    This update is unplayable. Welding = instacrash (dedicated server + all clients connected).

    KSH needs to pull back from features and needs to start a pure bug roundup. We are past that point where adding more features doesn't matter because no one can experience those features, much like selling someone a car that's on the moon irl -- it could be the greatest car in the galaxy, but if we can't drive it, what does it matter?

    So how about instead of complaining about in here, you make a bug report?

    I'm not complaining, I'm stating a matter of fact, you know, much like a bug report. I'm not going on some tangent or flaming KSH for the bug. Beside the point, my last 4 well document (save, log, dxdiag) bug reports have gone unanswered.

    There's no early rating. We need a really early rating here actually. I wouldn't have seen this normally but a cold of mine woke me up coughing and I thought I'd check out what's happening.

    Posting about it in here IS a whining complaint as the devs don't read this. And certainly not the devs responsible for answering bug reports.

    As for your bug reports, if it gets missed by Phand or whomever is answering the bug reports that day, mostly because of a flood of duplicate and bad reports, I don't think its unreasonable to bump it once in a while on a weekday, preferably early in the morning.
