Patch 1.6 – Major fixes, ship paint jobs & lots more!



Our largest, most comprehensive bug-fixing update yet, patch 1.6 is finally released!


1.6 is jam-packed with a plethora of fixes, improvements and overhauls that will improve game stability and overall player experience! We’ve also included some much-requested features by our community including collision avoidance while docking and full paint job availability across all ship blueprints!


GAMEPLAY AND QUALITY OF LIFE

Feature improvements:

  • Full paint job availability: unlocking a paint job will now make it available across all ship blueprints of the same model, no longer being solely tied to one particular ship layout. Players who have previously unlocked paint jobs will now find them available for all of their ships

  • Better docking collision protection: a safety radius around all docking points (passenger stops, remote service stations and public toilets), effectively preventing players from colliding while docking and undocking

  • Progressive dance level effectiveness: passengers will now get progressively more entertained as dancing players advance to higher dance levels

  • New paint job available: the flight school paint job is now unlockable for all models of the Econo-Cruiser

Interface and HUD overhauls:

  • New settings menus: settings menu has now been subdivided into separate windows for each setting group (general, video, audio, etc), and now each group can be separately reset to defaults

  • New save slots menu: save slots menu has been visually overhauled, and with added playthrough info, such as last time played

  • Better contextual icon auto-layout: as well as avoiding each other, contextual icons such as button prompts, repair level indicators, etc now also reposition themselves around power indicators and passenger and player portraits in order to always stay visible and prevent rendering on top of each other. Player and passenger portraits now also are repositioned if too close to screen borders

  • New unlockable indicator pop-up: whenever players return to the company terminal, a pop-up will now appear letting them know if new unlockables are available

  • Better fat asteroid minimap icon: fat asteroid icons on the minimap now also show the asteroid’s orientation

  • Auto-repeat directional input in menus: if players hold a directional input when interacting with menus, it gets automatically repeated after a small delay

  • Better public room info refresh rate: online sessions now update their public info displayed on the lobby at a more reliable rate


STABILITY AND OPTIMIZATION


  • Memory and storage usage overhaul: major improvement in the game’s runtime memory usage and reduction in patch sizes

  • Optimized online bandwidth usage: major changes to synchronization of object position and orientation across clients in order to reduce online bandwidth load

  • Better item parenting system: major overhaul of the item parenting system, responsible for synchronizing which items are being held by players, passengers and ship systems across online clients
