    Hello, Engineers! This week’s update is minor release which of course means there’s a fresh batch of general improvements for you while the team works towards completing bigger objectives. As it wasn’t mentioned in the video a couple of weeks ago, it’s just worth highlighting the fact that we added a new cryopod interior in the major update which makes being inside one feel much more immersive now. The main issues fixed in today’s update include hangar doors injuring characters, trees sometimes being invisible for clients on dedicated servers and the model of interior turrets becoming twisted when welded. Additionally, disconnecting huge grids with merge blocks should no longer cause significant freezes to occur.



    It’s been great reading everyone’s feedback from the last couple of weeks and to hear that many engineers have been experiencing greater performance on their worlds and servers. We’ve still got a lot of improvements and optimisations to come as well some surprises along the way. Please consider leaving us a review on Steam as a way to share your feedback with the team and the worldwide gaming community.
    Just as a reminder, we have a Discord server set-up for the discussion of anything related to Keen Software House. This is a great place for you to share creations and ideas, but also to just hang out with fellow engineers.

    Fixes:
    • fixed issue with invisible trees on DS
    • fixed visual stuttering on moving ships
    • fixed door killing people while built inside of voxel
    • fixed interior turret state upon being welded
    • fixed freeze when unmerging large grids
    • fixed crash when deleting (or mining) voxel on small planet
    We are also in progress of fixing memory leaks, these fixes should be part of next major update.

    Hotfix 1.182.204
    • fixed issue with certain GPUs not being detected
    • fixed issue with doors exploding

    I didn't know the camera could be moved inside the cryopod.

    It behaves the same in cockpit or even in first person camera mode as well as in control seats.

    Hello,

    The antenna issue is being looked into and will most likely go out when ready. Its not a change that is being taken lightly and needs proper attention in order to be implemented successfully and without too much trouble.

    Also, the 3 temporary official server (beta) will be reopen ? I would like a official server creative and survival (multilanguage if possible).

    Pleeeease let this be true. This bug has stopped me and friends playing our save for weeks (possibly months). I won't be able to test it until later today.

    EDIT: Finally been able to try the update. It's true. Doors of death are gone!

    Good update. :)

    Always glad to see bug fixes and such. You guys have done incredible work in the past while. Performance wise the major deal for me now is almost exclusively sim speed, especially when moving larger structures. If I can get to where I can run my starbase without too huge of issues or simspeed drops then that would be near perfect performance wise for me. Also hoping that at some point in the future there's more activity such as random structures to increase world activity or something. You guy's have done great work so far.

    Thanks so much for another update!

    Now, if you guys could focus on a few major bugs my friends and I have been dealing with on my DS, my life would be peeeeerrrfect.
    1) Invisible Asteroids. This happens when moving out of draw distance (chunk unloading?) and moving back to the asteroid. It CAN be fixed by loading an area far away from the missing asteroid & respawning back at the asteroid to "force" a reload of the chunk.
    2) Jump Drives - When jumping in the pilot seat, the screen stretches as it draws the jump animation, but never goes back to normal. The only way to fix this is to re-login to the server. Happens to me and my buddies on DS.

    These are by far some of the most annoying bugs, and fixes would be GREATLY appreciated.

    Keep up the good work, guys!

    Thanks for this report. I appreciate it. :)

    We will check it out and fix it as soon as possible (if it is reproducible).

    Had to make an account to post this. Have you guys looked into the bug at all where small ship connectors exert a force on ships that cause them to dip/rotate in random directions at high speeds? On the stock speed limit, it's slightly noticeable near 100 m/s and with modded speed limits it becomes impossible to go past 200 m/s without your ship becoming uncontrollable.

    The best thing to do is to follow the Guide on how to do a good bug report (bug report section pinned important message) and share your world, the ship in with a short description so the Devs can try. :tu:

    players have been telling that one for quite some time.....a ship going over the max speed limit of 100m/s tend to rotate oddly.

    max speed limit mods are fun. ^^
    getting up to that speed is easy...remembering to slow down in time....thats the part you have to remember!
    or else you'll overshoot or plow into your base going 300 m/s.

    I've noticed a bug with blast door LOD models. At some distances, the corner piece looks like the blast door edge; at some others both look like the corner. I think it was introduced in this update. Any chance for a hotfix tomorrow?

    EDIT: Wait... I've checked again and it doesn't happen anymore. I could have sworn...

    As great as it is having these weekly updates, i really wish sometimes there was a way to stop the steam system or space engineers from updating the game data for that week, i find it frustrating as hell because i can not play on MP servers until they have updated them, so this leaves a number of days where my system is not running the same game data as the server and it will not let me play, PLEASE KEEN give us a way to stop the updates if we want...

    I believe steam does have the option to not automatically update games. Wow, just checked and it does not! It only gives you an option for *when* to update it. That... is pretty Steam-like. Welp, I hope you get your wish one way or another.

    Steam was made to update half-life with patches. That was it was designed for in the first place.. selling games just slowly happened.

    The workaround is to set the game in the steam library interface - space engineers - properties - updates - automatic updates to 'only update this game when I launch it' - and then to create a windows shortcut to the actual SpaceEngineers.exe file in the <path>\Steam\steamapps\common\SpaceEngineers\Bin64 directory and launch the game from that shortcut instead of via the steam UI. You can then launch the game from the steam library when you decide its time to apply the update.

    The thing is though... as far as I can tell it does not patch. It downloads whole files that are different. If it was patching you would only see a few kilobytes to 2mb of download when keen puts out updates instead of up to 60mb. Of course the trade off is that it then would take a bit of compute/hd time to rebuild the files that are to be patched. Except for graphical changes(that are not generated)... that can eat up more download space.

    I remember the days when these update threads would be pages long by now. Something tells me people are too busy playing a mostly stable and limited-bug game to come to the forums to post. :)

    Nice job Keen! Keep knocking out those bugs. I look forward to the day when we struggle to find things to complain about. :)

    or they are waiting for people to post that certain bugs are fixed and they can now play the game the way that they want.
