    I've submited a bug report in the bug report section, let me find it. Found it: Here it is: https://forum.keenswh.com/threads/1-186-033-ore-detector-antenna-problem.7399821/

    Also i've just started a new survival world and dark ore patches aren't back! :( I have every setting set to high! Thank you!

    It says the ore patches has been resolved but I'm still missing mine after the update. :(

  12. Asylumdown Trainee Engineer

    Would this update adress the super low quality rendering of planets from a distance, or is that a graphics setting I need to change?
  13. Krienas Trainee Engineer

    if you are going to fix this, can you make it optional? I mean configurable from world settings. I like the fact that have to put more efforts to find ore, those patches always felt like cheat.. So, am totally not sure do I really want it fixed :)

    unsure if mod - but after a while unable to get into fighter cockpits randomly.
  15. stfalx Trainee Engineer

    I don't think you are much of a miner in eve but survey scanning helps a lot a fellow miner! :D
  16. Forgi LaGeord Trainee Engineer

    Still no fix for crooked gravity, sadly.

    Clang be praised! This was one of those I thought would never be fixed. O me of little faith, it seems.
  18. Sitharen Trainee Engineer

    ON THE ORE DETECTOR: I discovered the same issue mentioned above where the ore detector wasn't picking anything up. Turns out in control panel, you can adjust the range of it now.

    Imagine you are chatting with a friend in your brand new RV. You turn to your friend and ask: "Have you seen The Lorax?" Since you pressed the X key, the entire vehicle suddenly leaps up into the air, somersaults onto its back and slams back to the ground. And then you realize it didn't only happen to you, but to everyone else in the convoy. Speak the forbidden 'X' words, and your vehicles would attempt suicide. It was terrifying.

    A bit of good news is my Ram and CPU usage are back to normal ranges. Still seeing some massive spikes in GPU usage that will go from 15% usage up to 100% and sit there for awhile if I'm doing so much as normal activities. SE used a good bit of my GPU before but never maxed it out to the point of stuttering like this until this major update. As it sits right now the stuttering from the GPU usage spikes are the biggest issue I'm experiencing.

    Also on a minor note, it seems that when a damaged solar panel is repaired it's still showing the lightning/damaged animation for a good 5 minutes afterwards at least. Eventually the damaged animation did go away but just took it awhile. I don't have anyone to help me test this so don't really have an easy way to confirm it, but it appeared very briefly like the light from welding was actually giving power to the solar panels.

    Props for the fixes so far folks, tis greatly appreciated.

    That's not it. The lander's ore detector is already set to max range, if you deconstruct the beacon and build an antenna to the lander you culd have walked around, without being in a cockpit / control station and still se ores location. etc.

    Now, sometimes you see ore locations sometimes you don't it goes like on and off with intervals of 2 minutes or so.
  22. Braethias Apprentice Engineer

    No folders for blueprints?
  23. Outfrost Apprentice Engineer

    WHY :|
    Could we at least get an option to disable those in world settings? It was so beautiful without dark patches.

    Thank you ;DD
  24. XCanG Trainee Engineer

    That sounds very scary :stare:
  25. Robert Murdock Trainee Engineer

    here are some pictures of how ore deposits look like now. It has different color on different surfaces.

    Agreed. Would be a nice option... hopefully something implemented as part of an overall Survival fix (though I daresay Multiplayer needs a little love, first).
  30. Xelo Trainee Engineer

    A lot of very nice and needed fixes and improvements.
    Thank you!
