    Hello, Engineers! This weeks update brings you more fixes and improvements. There should be fewer multiplayer crashes, issues with block groups in control panel should be fixed and Remote Control functions: Take Control and Sharing now work correctly.

    And for those who asked - yes, we decided to reduce the amount of videos in favor of their quality. There will be videos for major updates only. We will also keep releasing videos for new features introductions, trailers and other special events - so don't worry. :)

    And a quote to end on: What do you call a loony spaceman? An astronut!

    Thanks! I had the game crash multiple times on me while playing on a server, losing my inventory every time wasn't fun. :/

    Great, the half heavy block is still cheap as the light one
    You guys should build as many as possible before it's fixed :woot:

    I might actually use the gamepad now. No offense, but that control layout at feature launch was horrendous.

    I'm not really a fan of the "no update videos" thingy. Was there any problem with their quality? I don't remember any... You just got tired of wokring on a video weekly, when you only had to mention 4-5 minor fixes, right? I used to wait the update videos, because whenever there was a new one, I stopped everything I was doing, literally grabbed some snack, a bottle of something (cola or ice tea) and sat back to the PC and started the video. It was always like... when you sit into the cinema for an "O.K." movie and you can't wait for the new Star Wars trailer...

    Can we get an option for this? It makes hauling drones and dropping them much easier.

    From my perspective, groups still reappear after they have been deleted.

    This is happening on an existing save with existing grids, but I'll test it further in a new world and such when I get a chance later tonight.

    I'll post my findings as a thread in the bug report forums and link it here after that's done.

    EDIT: link to the bug report in question: https://forum.keenswh.com/threads/1...after-removal-on-existing-blueprints.7397352/

    My fear is that he didn't run out of air, since we no longer get audible oxygen warnings.....

    FINALLY Keen Learns their lesson about teasers: We don't want teasers for features that are coming five months from now - but rather a simple text description of what changed...THANKS Keen - best move you've made for PR since before you abandoned the "Pseudo-Realism" Factor of your Ads.

    If I had a feature everytime a video came out I would be quite satisfied. I do hope you continue to work on the game - But as a Side Note: Now that mods have added things like Hunger and Hunting - I'd be careful of breaking any more mods - if you look on the workshop most people agree there's a mod for everything somewhere.

    Also would it be too much to ask that the New Game Scenerios for Easy Start Earth and other planet-based scenerios start with all the small ships docked and charging to the "Main Station"? I run out of power often in survival and that leads to broken ships and restarts - stuff that could be easily avoided if the connectors were locked on game start :/

    Let me guess...@Xocliw took off and didn't give anyone the Twitter pwd, hmmmm? I'm fine with fewer, better videos, but a Twitter update would still be nice each Thursday.

    I will admit I'll miss the videos - they've been a part of my "get home from work on a friday afternoon" routine for almost 4 years. I have not missed a single one.

    Was there a hotfix? Any details on what was changed?

    One of the doors on the sliding door block is inverted.
