  • Decreased the frequency of new random mission spawns (from one every minute to once every two minutes).
  • Trading stations now spawn vertically rather than at an angle perpendicular to the terrain.
  • The SCU Storage device is now treated like a normal block. You can buy multiple versions of it and you won’t be gifted a new one when it is lost or destroyed.
  • Updated GeoCorp mission enemies to be more challenging and impressive.
  • Restricted the rotation options for crafting blocks to ensure that they are placed facing upwards (existing Techs with alternate orientations are still loadable and useable if they were before, but newly attached blocks can only be placed in upwards facing orientations from now onwards).

    • Increased the health and efficiency of the EXP Static Generator. It now has the greatest return for consuming fuel chunks, but takes longer than the GSO Static Generator to consume them.
    • Increased the passive drain and energy consumption per point of damage repelled for the GSO and Venture Shield Bubbles.
    • Reduced the energy drain of the GeoCorp Repair Bubble and slowed down its heal speed.
    • Reduced the energy drain of the Venture Repair Bubble and sped up its heal speed.

Known Issues:[]

  • Playing with older game saves may bypass certain new game content. Older game saves will continue to work, but players are highly recommended to start a fresh game to experience new content.
  • GSO Anchored Furnace Generator doesn’t function.
  • Gaps in the terrain may be visible on rare occasions.
  • Hawkeye Laser Targeting block doesn’t fully function yet.
  • Twitch stream integration is currently not working as a result of an API change on their end.
  • Graphical issues with red projector on terrain when enemies spawn in.
  • Some radar markers may point towards things that are missing in the world.
  • Some arrows in certain base designs incorrectly point in the wrong direction.
  • Geothermal Generator is fixed, but state of terrain does not save, so vents can disappear once the generator is placed on top of them.
  • Markers for missions and bases when playing in 4:3 are offset slightly.
