    Summary
    We have broadened the oxygen options in the game. Now, there can be oxygen inside small ships and cockpits. Additionally, there is an oxygen level on the player’s suit (available only in survival mode and only if enabled in options). The character will have to breathe oxygen in order to survive. If the level drops to 0, he will lose health. Oxygen can be replenished in the medical room or through oxygen bottles, which can be replenished in oxygen tanks or oxygen generators. Lastly, there is a Space Ball that bounces inside the game!!!!



    Important note for modders:
    We changed the mechanics of spawning in medical rooms, so all modded medical rooms should include: dummy detector_respawn in order to spawn the player as the default medical room.

    Features
    - space ball
    - oxygen for small ships and cockpits
    - suit’s oxygen level
    - oxygen bottle (inventory item)
    - med bay conveyors (to transfer oxygen)
    - enclosed cockpit conveyors (to transfer oxygen)
    - re-spawn screen shows level of oxygen around medical rooms
    - suit consumes less energy when helmet is off
    - character with helmet off will not die when energy is 0 (must be inside pressurized room)
    - moddable number of subparts for hangar doors
    - new features for air vents in ModAPI/Ingame programming

    Fixes
    - fixed asteroid lag
    - fixed turret lag caused by lasers
    - fixed loss of grid physics
    - fixed airtight hangar doors not venting oxygen when not fully closed
    - fixed GPS staying on HUD when unchecked
    - fixed air vent venting when it is OFF
    - fixed oxygen only passing through connectors on the same grid
    - fixed incorrect oxygen level reported on projection
    - fixed ice not fall from oxygen generator
    - fixed spawn in medical room
    - fixed hanger door looping sound

    EDIT 04/03/2015
    Update 01.076.011

    - fixed oxygen balance (lower oxygen consumption)
    - fixed oxygen auto-refill is not synced
    - fixed oxygen auto-refill working without energy
    - fixed oxygen bottles notification in MP
    - fixed getting damaged when sitting in cockpit without helmet

    Just saying, it would be hilarious if the space balls turned out to be a bit glitchy, and someone made a ball pit that did physics magic and ended up launching a player's corpse away at mach 1(and uploaded the video).

    Yeah, that track has been in the files forever, but when it played in the video both my wife and kid were laughing.

    good for roleplaying, now you have an actual reason to find ice instead of being mister helmet on all the time.

    sounds like more detriments then benefits and kind of forces someone to use oxygen... but looks good!

    Very nice update. This is going to change gameplay quite a bit, adding more challenges to PVP.

    You could look at it that way.. but when you're building up a new ship or base, not having to charge as much cause your suite uses less energy is a interesting trade off..
