    Didn't have to wait so long for modapi changes. Nice.

    Umm, so is this new Skybox supposed to make everything blue?

    Edit: As if this game wasn't blue enough already.....

    I don't seem to be able to look left/right whilst in a cockpit anymore.

    Also, the game seems to freeze my PC every few minutes when running the game now.

    Large oxygen generator - highlights the wrong port when you try to interact with it.

    3RD person view will not let you move camera angle around but so far its a great update.

    Sounds also are broken when getting into the main cockpit. :(
  12. ksmonkey123 Trainee Engineer

    Build from Cockpit doesn't work either. Submitted a bug report, hope it will be approved soon ;)
  13. Forcedminer Senior Engineer

    oh sweet jesus we can finally loot the wolfs again......
    bloody hell i thought that feature was being removed for good......*the sound of massive relief*

    I skybox looks Sweetttttttttt.

    I can already hear my computer giving out stink for having to deal with a 4k texture
  14. K Man Trainee Engineer

    +Skybox is pretty
    +Running fairly smooth so far

    -Camera movement not working in 3rd person in a command chair
    -First person horizontal view blocked when in command seat, vertical works
    -My ship/station still bounces off the ground quite a bit on impact with planet: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=830312178
    -Lag spikes when coming across SPRT ships, the engine fires on my ship stopped for a moment and left a gap in the trail of flames
    -Skybox must bleed some blue light - unfinished armor blocks look like minecraft ice blocks at a distance.

    These screenshots were taken a couple steps from each other. Quite the difference in blue.

    Alt-Camera rotation does not work in 3rd person ship view! (In windowed mode, which is the only way I can get the game to run on a 4K monitor.)

    This renders the game pretty close to unplayable.

    edit: alt-camera rotation works when 3rd-person in spacesuits, but not in small or large ships or stations. That's too bad; that's a completely game-breaking bug to have in Stable.

    OK just reloaded the world, in ship I can look left right etc ... until I leave the ship and re-enter it, then it's buggered again ... up/down only.

    When viewed from outside, no camera movement but with my suit lights on it would appear that my body is still doing the movements.

    Might help you work out what you broke.
  17. nathan2000 Trainee Engineer

    And there's a problem with turrets. After killing a wolf, they forget to stop shooting. You need to manually switch Shooting: Off on them.

    I also noticed my survival world now has wolves and spiders box off in the settings, even though I enabled them and they still appear.

    Love the new bug report window!

    Yes, some minor sarcasm there.

    is it just me or was LOD distance for low-poly models dramatically reduced?
    kswh pls give us control over that. otherwise a good update so far

    FINALLY!!Love the update, can't wait to try wheels on the MP server I am on. Before they were...not to be trusted...fingers crossed. Oh and all my corner LCD's are upside down now, daferq that happen?

  22. The Mechanic Trainee Engineer

    Thanks for the update guys, but I have a minor quibble. The new icons for the oxygen and hydrogen bottles are almost exactly the same. Please make it like it was before - one light, one dark - so we can tell which one is which at a glance.

    Unfortunately, ships are still falling through planets for me. This happens with both Large and Small ships.
  24. Shatara422 Trainee Engineer

    The good:
    Holy crap, performance! Don't know if it was optimization or being forced to update my ancient drivers to run the game, but I can get stable framerates with shadows on again!
    Small turret hitbox fix! Since SEmodder4 deleted his mod when the change hit dev, us stable plebs were forced to deal with massive invisible tophats again. No more!

    The bad:
    Alt freelook broken (1st and 3rd person), making it pretty much impossible to fly ships in tight spaces.
    Sound broken in enclosed cockpits
    Setting batteries to recharge does not stop them from draining; setting to semi-auto seems to shut them down entirely

    Wow where to start. Freelook broken, turrets are broken, huge fps drops near ships compared to old build (no fps loss vs drop to 25fps near the same ship), massive error list with modded components with references to things I've never heard of or things that aren't even changed by the specific mods pointing to non-existent mod files, modded particle effects just not working with no errors saying why, and these are just the problems I'm encountering with the mods I'm working on and vanilla unmodded game components. There are no update notes about changing turret AI unless a change to interior turrets shooting through doors broke every turrets' AI without you guys noticing, I can see where the note about adding a MATERIALS file to the Mod SDK is doing something to my modded materials.sbc file and causing my custom particles to not spawn somehow but honestly I don't know what "added MATERIALS in Mod SDK to fix pink texture issues for modders" means, I don't use any SDK for editing .sbc files or how it relates to my files. I can't even test what the armor deformation changes did to the carefully tested weapon damage I have because weapons are freaking out, but I'm terrified by what I'll find, not to mention how broken my drone AI behaviors are going to be when I can even get them to work.

    I swear every "stable" update that get released sets my mod release date back 2 weeks because I have to fix not only compatibility issues in my files but in the interactions in gameplay the patch has had. I've been working for 3 months on a total overhaul and now I'm not even sure I can finish this project if every thursday I have to gamble if I'm going to spend the next week or two working backwards. Everyone I was directly working with has quit, I've seen a dozen great modders leave the scene over your patches in the past few months and I can see why. Please, pick up some community members to QA your updates before you push them out to everyone, don't act like everyone who has purchased your game is a QA tester and what you're doing is okay. You guys do amazing work, but it's killing me to see that you aren't quality checking :(

    EDIT 1: Deformation is totally messed up. Explosions take a full second to update deformation to affected blocks. An explosion hits, then a second later the blocks get deformed by it. The larger the explosion the longer the delay. I don't know what your changes to the explosions were but it appears to be calculating the effects of the explosion and waiting until its done before applying the effects, though an explosion calculation shouldn't take 60+ steps to complete.

    Edit 2: The entire damage system is throttled in the same way, any instance of weapon-related deformation or damage is delayed until calculations are completed. Large volleys of projectiles that hit in the same few steps apply their effects for nearly a second after the projectiles hit, in order of their hits. Physics forces, damage, and deformation from weapons are all delayed. This is at full 60UPS (1.0 sim speed). There's no sim speed loss, not that there was ever any sim speed loss from 20 projectiles or a single explosion before the patch. Between the damage system being broken and looking at a grid with more than 200 blocks tanking my FPS, there's no point to me starting up the game until a hotfix is released :/

    On the plus side alt-rotation of camera works in multiplayer, so that's playable!
  27. Vorg Trainee Engineer

    Yea, but we got a new 4k skybox!
    What is the point of having a dev version if when they put the changes out as "stable" it trashes it?
  28. Kokurokoki Apprentice Engineer

    Hey, here's a fix found by some of our fellow Engineers for those of you who want help dealing with the cockpits bugging out.

    How exactly do you utilize these materials when building an mwm of a modified vanilla block?
    Mwmbuilder don't seem to detect them from their original directory.
  30. HeikoH1255 Trainee Engineer

    Found a way to fix the camera issue. Open /F10 Menu/ Enable Space Master/ Press F8/ Press F6/ Try to look around. :)
