Experimental Branch Patch Notes 0.2.13

Ahem. Founder, I sincerely apologize for yesterday’s… episode. Bahar has been a thorn in our side for a while, but it seems they’re growing bolder. We’re currently on high alert, so you can leave them to us for now.

I’m told there have been quite a few updates to ships, xethane and fuel in the meantime. I received some notes just now, so I expect someone will patch some through to you soon too. Stay safe out there.

Changes as of 0.2.13

Ships and Transport

  • Changed truck fuel consumption to be half of previous revision
  • Transport Hub now refuels at a rate of 20 fuel per second
  • Ship costs are slightly less
  • Added an indication that ships are early access still, and that we’re working on new features for them!

Hey look! Advisor Updates! (edit) oops, due to a build hiccup, these aren’t available yet! We’ll fix it next time.

Xethane, Sinkholes & Crevices

  • Purifier removes less xethane (50% decrease)
  • Crevices and Sinkholes generate less xethane
  • Xethane consumption has been balanced to reduce huge fuel generation when building
  • Fuel Hub storage changes
  • Turbines near Sinkholes/Crevices
  • Added a stat on selection UI for Sinkholes and Crevices to show how much fuel is being output each second

Make sure to dress appropriately!

  • Dynamic weather is here! Experience snow and rain on Titan.

Your actions DO have consequences:

  • Employee and Citizen death notifications are now different colours

Fixes as of 0.2.13

  • Fixed a crash that occurred whenever rebel ships spawned
  • Fixed some issues with Rebel Barks
  • Fixed some Codex bugs and typos
  • Fixed Employees storing resources on the wrong floor when returning from a cancelled construction
  • Fixed duplicate ship appearing when launching a ship
  • Fixed priority list reverting when loading a game that had an adjusted priority list

You can find the full list of known issues here.

At this time I do not recommend trying to build ships, I have had multiple memory issues where game freezes up and then crash due to low memory, this has happened in previous update 0.2.10 and this update 0.2.13 , I will be working to test out other features with new games and see if they can be reproduced in the ship building I built just enough fuel generators and power and only storage for supplies on the first floor both times and it still had issue. I also understand that ships are still in testing, this is just my experience with them. Also it did not matter what ship I tried to build. This is related to vxxglbol bug report.

@Damien_V I’ve received your save file in the bug reporter, thank you for sending it! I haven’t been able to reproduce with your save file unfortunately, but will keep trying to do so. Thank you!

I will try the new update this weekend see if I hit the issue again, but I will delete all other saves and do a restart of my computer before starting a new game to make sure that there are no bugs and the cache is cleaned out. Also next time it happens or if I remember , I will try to record the event and attach a video file to show what happened

This is on windows 10

After testing in the newest update their has been no issues with ship building, in fact it actually worked this time. This might have been a fluke on my side. But I will continue to test and report bugs as they appear and try to better document issues to help reproduce when checking
