    Hello, Engineers! This week’s update contains a large amount of fixes including a major one for landing gears which were having issues locking to both voxels and grids. The landing gears 3d model has also been adjusted so that the base of it is more central and does not protrude as much. There has also been other model improvements including updated models for the oxygen tank, blast furnace, upgrade modules and the spotlight. The sliding door block now has emissions that shows it’s status, bringing it in line with the standard door. Some of these changes were in fact made because of comments from the community. So thanks for all of the feedback and you can expect to see more of these visual tweaks in the coming weeks.
    Moving on, this week we will be adding materials into the ModSDK to fix issues with pink textures with some mods. We appreciate your patience with getting this solution out. Bugs fixed this week include not being able to interact with large reactor conveyor doors, issues when reloading worlds with pistons extended and camera view issues in multiplayer. Lastly, we resolved the issues of asteroids appearing in the empty world scenario by adding the option to start any scenario without asteroids. This setting can be found in the “World Generator” page before starting your world.

    Ship building contest is interesting. Especially since the "recent" update to the new blocks. I am looking forward to the new ships already :woot:.

    So, "fixed merge block not working within same grid" means we can once again use merge blocks to attache multiple pistons/rotors to the same grid now?

    I have to agree, most of these bugs should be kicked into STABLE asap as they are stuff you broke with you rush before Christmas.

    Another week and another mild disappointment, kudos to you for fixing the issues with subgrids merging. However in doing so you completely broke sub grids behavior....

    - phantom force is now even worse on pistons
    - Attached sub grids randomly twist themselves (img) begins after first time moving post merge...
    - Small grid pistons cannot seem to keep the head where it should be, they just randomly move around instead of going in a straight line.
    - Still cannot spawn my excavator, but it appears to have gotten better now the sections of the boom are atleast still attached....

    This took me less than 5 minutes to find... how did someone not find these issue in checking to see if a merged subgrid worked or not...?

    or am I just now the unlucky Sod that has his stuff randomly explode....

    Nice to see the bug fixes and the changes to the landing leg's looks, now if they could stop them becoming bombs on your own ships, "sigh" anyway, looking forward to the new skybox makes me not think i've gone back in time to the DX9 era......
