    Summary
    In this week’s update we are adding the option to run castle siege battles on dedicated servers. Each time a castle siege session ends, the lobby will restart again so you can battle over and over! Additionally, the survival stats and numbers have been rebalanced based on our community’s feedback. We have also added a new batch of construction models for blocks used in survival building. Lastly, we have switched the hammer buttons while building/deconstructing (left mouse button for building, right mouse button for deconstructing).



    Features
    - Castle Siege dedicated server support
    - more construction models for blocks (survival building)
    - switched hammer buttons (LMB = building, RMB = deconstructing)
    - mark showing where the stats will grow after eating something

    Fixes
    - fixed another issue with duplicating objects in inventory system
    - fixed stats balance - now it takes much longer before player's starving starts

    Nice, fixed some major issues. I love the hammer change the most.

    Next major thing should be to highlight blocks that will be constructed/deconstructed.

    And to fix physics props flinging your character into space engineers

    Keep up the great work!

    Thanks for the fixes. And the new survival blocks. I'm looking forward to trying this out. Keep on helping us make our worlds more & more real. More blocks, more skins, more AI. You guys have something great here!

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE stop the hammers from making holes in the terrain, when I'm trying to build a house and suddenly I accidentally ruin the floor and of course in survival I cant use voxel hands. Other than that I'm loving everything! Great stuff!

    So far only seen one server and it doesnt work because the server is being counted as a player and is the leader of defenders

    Hmm... This might be the shortest change log video that I've seen.

    Anyways, changing what the hammer does is handy. I didn't like how the hammer worked; left click was attack, and right click was build (or disassemble depending on which one you were using). Maybe there will be a combat hammer in a later build, but right now a construction tool that works correctly is required. Maybe the hammer could make 2 different toolbar commands available, 1 for construction, 1 for combat. It might not be as good as a proper sword or mace, but it could save room.

    I think this is a nice little bit of progress. I like seeing several things updated at once, even if it's little pieces at a time. It's slowly coming together for a full fledged survival server environment!

    I like the conjunction of the hammers functions but some on... 1% per 6 hits on stone objects.... that's 11 and a half minutes roughly to deconstruct.

    I dare you to take a hammer to a real castle wall and do something significant to it in 11 and a half minutes :)

    I thought it was pretty obvious that the devs did this so you players couldn't just deconstruct other player's walls during a siege.

    True this is likely why. I think they should implement a background 'owner' of the blocks (owner is the person that placed the construction frame) just like in SE but the owner and his faction are allowed to deconstruct the blocks quickly. The only problem without the advanced UI like SE is changing ownership easily... I still think they should implement a proper UI like SE, we are starting to get elements of one in the inventory screens so that's a start at least!

    I think it would be good if you are the person who built it you could deconstruct faster, or give the ability to destroy you're stuff faster using an option in the menue.
