    Summary
    Hello, Engineers! Today's update brings you more improvements for our last major update. We have also improved jetpack behavior while flying on a moving ship for dedicated servers.

    And if you are thinking about joining our Physics & Engineering Contest, now is your chance! Check the details at Marek's blog post: http://blog.marekrosa.org/2017/11/space-engineers-physics-engineering.html
    Because we are already in the process of switching to a new skybox, you can use it as well before it is officially released: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1208808693

    The current skybox texure is a bit annoying. I would prefer something a bit darker and more toned down.

    I've submitted four crash logs - can't get into our DS, can't open a saved game, can't create a new empty world. All crashes. :(

    Yeah, fairly sure the majority of active commenters have said that they really, really don't want that skybox- they would MUCH rather have the 'Space just got real' skybox as the default; because it doesn't look like pea soup.

    No fixes for broken turrets yet?
    No official word or fixes for grid-mass related issues ( re: gyro strength halved )?

    Glad to see the important issues being completely ignored as per usual, keep up the good work.

    Question justified.
    But since the developer does not survive, why should he update it?

    Hey this update has completely screwed up my game, I can get into the home screen but when i load up a game it crashes. Since the update i've been getting in the crash log this ''Exception occured: System.AccessViolationException: Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt.''. I know almost certainly this was the update as it was working hours before it. I've never had this problem before. I've tried reinstalling the game and loading new worlds with and without mods. Even tried deleting game files the second time i reinstalled the game. Any help from an admin or anyone really would be much appreciated, Thanks!

    Hi everyone,

    Since today's update we are aware of an issue, where certain players are unable to join/load a world because of following exception:

    "Exception occured: System.AccessViolationException: Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt."

    This issue has top priority now and we hope to solve it during tomorrow. It seems to affect some of nVidia Control Panel users. Until it will be fixed, we would reccomend to try to turn off FXAA and MFAA in nVidia Control Panel, it helped to some other players as can be seen here.

    Sorry for these inconveniences.

    If I could make a small suggestion about the skybox:

    Perhaps make 5 different flavors that are options when loading/creating the world map. I do like the new skybox but regardless of which one you go with it gets stale after a while. I'd definitely use them all.

    1. Deep Black space with minimal objects for the purists out there
    2. Milky way skybox for the homebodies
    3. Existing colorful skybox for those that like it
    4. New re-mastered alpha skybox for that retro SE atmosphere
    5. something with different colors from all above (see Caldari Skybox, #3 popular all time on WS)

    As long as I can get the skybox I want from the Workshop, it really doesn't matter to me what skybox Keen goes with.

    Ok, I am asking because I wonder what is going on. In my survival world, pistons, rotors and wheels are as buggy as ever.
    - wheels jumps up and down, also causing this irritating rattle.
    - rotors has a loud bang noise every 1/2 a second, gets old fast.
    - piston, the heads always detach, and also shake.
    - landing gear on a rotor, the whole thing shakes so much that the rotor head eventually detach and the whole ship goes into deep space if nothing stops it. If something is in its way, the force at which the ship is propulsed usually means instant annihilation on contact.

    Do I have to start a new world, am I cursed? Thought the video said this was things of the past. Am I missing something? I report bugs but guys, I want to be patient but it is kind of useless trying to find new bugs when you're stopped by old ones.

    OK, I am warned. Since I have a NVidia card, I will not load any world before tomorrow saw a hotfix.

    I will answer your question by quoting your own post a matter of hours ago:

    :) Oh sweet irony...

    I can not launch a world without crashing:
    Code:
    Exception occured: System.AccessViolationException: Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt.
      at GFSDK_Aftermath_SetEventMarker(GFSDK_Aftermath_ContextHandle__* , Void* , UInt32 )
      at NativeAftermath.MyAfterMath.SetEventMarker(IntPtr context, String marker)
      at VRage.Render11.GeometryStage2.PreparePass.MyPreparePass.Perform(MyRenderContext RC, List`1 visibleInstances)
    Every single time. This is infuriating.

    Nvidia 980TI, loaded my game fine. However, couldn't stand this muffled sounds like you have shoes in the dryer while your head is under water, all because my small ship has 5 rotors. Annoying as hell.

    Take out the rotors, all is fine. Can't stand this noise any more. got out the game in less than a minute. Maybe next week.

    It isn't on to begin with.

    EDIT: I just restarted my computer and now it works. :| Literally none of my settings changed. These are the worst kind of bugs, the ones you can't track down.

    How is his (or your) reply out of context? you're lamenting on bugs present that as per Early Access might or might not reappear yes they said it should be fixed that doesn't mean it will be fixed for everyone and as the testers we need to let them know if there are issues
    --- Automerge ---
    I agree entirely skybox now and proposed look glaringly off. When I look up at the night sky (yes I do it quite often) I don't see a single nebula let alone see them surrounding our system considering this is in our system (going by earthlike having wolves and mars) in a not so distant future i'd like to have a more believable atmosphere(or lack of) and just include Space just got real.

    No, not taken out of context at all- you must have trouble reading. I complained about turrets being broken, you told me that the game was still in development & that I should be patient & wait for it to be fixed.

    You complained about rotors and pistons being broken, I told you ( by quoting your own post ) the game was still in development & that you should be patient & wait for it to be fixed.

    Please explain how I took your quote out of context? Go on, I dare you.
