    Hello, Engineers!
    Today's minor update brings you more dedicated server GUI and Remote Client improvements, more descriptive tool tips for trash removal settings and lots of quality of life improvements and fixes. To name a few, we have addressed a rare issue with cars, which should prevent these vehicles from experiencing explosions. And we fixed slow loading times or issue with Game is already saving.
    We are so happy that you are enjoying Space Engineers multiplayer, every stream, youtube video or game session we see is an absolute blast of fun. And that is the best outcome we could have hoped for.
    But in case you are experiencing any issues, please visit our new support page: https://support.keenswh.com/
    We will try to help you as soon as possible.
    Have fun!

    Nice to see some fixes, especially as it also confirms some issues as game bugs and not issues with how servers are setup etc....


    Control + Delete is an already used rotation keybind to rotate things by 90degree increments. It should not also remove whatever grid you are looking at with no confirmation and without putting it onto the clipboard. Overlapping keybinds are a bit of a joke in SE anyway with how many do multiple things, but hard removing a grid from the game if you have admin tools is a pretty dumb overlap.

    I know Xoc has been plagued by this one also... so disappointed it's still not fixed, that can cost huge amounts of work in the right circumstances.

      Hmm I'm wondering if i now can disconnect a car from the base connector wih activated handbreaks. So far this always resulted in funny explosions ;-)

    That's right! Another awful overlapping keybind is Shift + Mouse Scroll for changing spectator camera speed when Shift already makes said camera go faster.

    They had to alot of people had to revert to 186 as the advanced settings for setting up games were not showing up and had to revert to 186 to get SP to work including myself.

    Oh... we have already discussed it, but it haven't made it in, I will bring it up tomorrow. (Personally I had no idea that it is used for 90 deg rotations, learning things every day :D )
    --- Automerge ---
    Inflex would give more info about it, but that should be probably safe. Unless there were more different kinds of carsplosions. (this was after driving for some time and you went far enough from car, wheels would explode when conditions were right)

    I just got out of a SE session few minutes before. For me this update 1.187.1 worked great. Could finally load my 1.186 save.
    Thanks for the speedy work goes to Petr and our heroes from SE dev team.
    (And I did not have to abandon a mod for that)

    Still seeing really slow loading when connecting to DS with planets enabled. After loading it, it takes ~5 minutes to finish streaming planet data on a fast server with tons of bandwidth. You can move, unless you're in a cryopod, but can't interact with anything until planet streaming completes. No chat messages show during that time and ping times in F3 just show as '---' until streaming is done.

    Connecting to this server will demonstrate the problem, all players are seeing it: https://space-engineers.com/server/101350/

    e: It took the same amount of time for me to connect in the prior release, 1.187

    Please can you give some details what was changed with wheels in the 1.187. They were perfect before 1.187, now they behave like all the improvements in 1.186 have been reverted :(. I had such a good time finally building rovers that functioned like you would expect them to and now it's back to building oversized rovers with friction turned all the way down.

    Ehm... I am innocent, it was not my fault! :D I didn't do anything, I just checked what was causing problem (there was something really wrong with mod Mech's mods: Gear and Things which crashed during 5th and 6th stage of loading)

    That can be seen in log as:
    MOD_CRITICAL_ERROR: [DX11] Mech's Mods: Gears & Things
    2018-08-06 09:57:22.530 - Thread: 1 -> in file:
    2018-08-06 09:57:22.530 - Thread: 1 -> MOD PARTIALLY SKIPPED, LOADED ONLY 6/6 PHASES, Following Error occured:

    If world with mods cant be loaded, it is alway good to check log, if there is something like this, it mean world will be corrupted ( acrually there is bug in it too, 6/6 means it crashed in 6th phase and that 6th phase is not complete)

    But it is great to know it is not wixed, so I have free evening :D

    as far as I can tell, there were no (intentional) changes done to functionality of wheels since 186.

    If you feel like something has drastically changed and wheels doesn't work as good as they use to, please switch back to 186 via Steam backups and make some apples to apples comparison between current and last version and let us know (if possible with some videos and save of your testing world) so we can fix it.

    Keep in mind that we have special page for bug and other issue reports (https://support.keenswh.com) so please forward your further responses regarding this topic to this page so it doesn't get lost in this thread.
    Thank you.

    Thank you! I played a lot with rovers after the 186 all the way to 186.5. The change was immeadately noticeable after I tested my rovers in 187. Here is the report, should be fairly easy to confirm https://support.keenswh.com/spaceen...k-to-pre-wheel-update-levels-of-functionality

    I can confirm that because: In the screen at the beginning, when it lists all mods doing problems on the right screen edge, this one is the only one with critical errors (written in red) on top of the list. I could even throw it out without consequences, as I have never built anything with gears (yeah don't ask me why I have this activated for years without using it...).
    By the way, I also had a nice increase of sim speed compared with 1.186. Maybe would already have been in 1.187, but as we know, I could not experience it up to now, with 1.187.1. I am relieved.

    Basically interpolation of animations was really not smooth. If someone was looking up down up down, every other player would see them doing in in really not fluent way :D

    That exploding vehicles bug was getting really annoying. My friend took a BP of a rover I built, we went to grind down part of an NPC ship, they put the components into the connector and upon exiting the inventory...the rovers wheels fell off and it got flung (with a rather nice trail of black smoke) several kilometers away. Luckily the connector+the 4x reactors attached survived.
