1.793

Large patch moving to stable- very significant performance improments (up to 220% of previous frame rate), saving times in campaign reduced by factors of 50 to 100, new more robust damage system for projectiles, melee impacts, missile impacts and lasers, new NPC crew, and lots more.

In a bit of a rush as I’m catching a plane in 10 minutes but here is the full change log.

[1.772] Out of play repairs can be conducted by in play vehicles (in play can repair out of play-> not the other way around)

[1.772] Some more mission updates

[1.773] Locks for blocks accidentally added again- removed now

[1.773] More alloy shapes added

[1.773] Bug with autodestroy count down timer continuing forever fixed

[1.78] [bug fix] Missile speed now independent of game time

[1.78] enemy AI can be controlled in MP designer

[1.78] Missile launch pad settings syncronised over network

[1.78] Poster block size synced over network

[1.78] Fixed a bug with cannon barrels not rendering after being repaired

[1.78] Lua box crash potentially averted (checks for Update before trying to call it)”

[1.78] Air pump bugs with respect to beams and large blocks should now be fixed

[1.78] Respawn process failures (bug) fixed in multi and single player.

[1.78] Turret and spinner block health increased from 150 to 500 to help with ‘turret pop’

[1.78] New missions and vehicle updates added

[1.78] Server crash when player disconnected / kicked should be fixed

[1.78] Fixed a bug with players being spawned in upside down if they saved when in an upside down chair that they did not then spawn into.

[1.781] Build mode automatically stopped when viewing blockade or enemy battle start info- loss of control bug avoided

[1.781] Lua: interface added for setting target of interceptor missiles

[1.781] Mission: surplus objectives removed from steel striders mission 1, and auto win after 15 minutes added.

[1.781] Character sheet GUI flag setup screen now has added clarity on options

[1.781] Local Weapon controller will target vehicles above 2000m altitude if ‘no limit’ is set

[1.781] AI will only start battles with player fleets if they are at war with them

[1.781] Hopefully rare issues with save button not appearing should be fixed
[1.79] A more efficient replacement for raycasting is implemented- reducing the use of the physics engine and improving FPS performance by up to 50%.

[1.79] Laser Anti Missile Systems only damage missiles now

[1.79] Weaponised lasers don’t hit missiles at the moment

[1.79] Projectile ricochets of terrain removed

[1.79] Issues with inability to save should be resolved

[1.79] Missiles should not be able to phase through objects and armour at high velocities anymore

[1.79] Instances can be marked as hidden in the map editor- this works currently only for story missions

[1.79] Repair bots move with the vehicle and have simplified physics

[1.79] Distant engines, cannons, lasers, AI and other generally interior objects are not rendered beyonf 500m range

[1.79] All turrets replaced with just two types- the one axis and two axis precision (two axis precision is new)”,

[1.792] Saving format changed for campaign which makes it approximately 60 times faster for complicated campaigns (the first save in this new format will take a while)

[1.792] large (>5k block) ship water drag bug fixed making large ships faster

[1.792] barrels increase kinetic damage as they should (broken since 1.79)

[1.792] Crew (NPC Spawner) updated significantly

[1.792] Melee damage detection for spin blocks and turrets fixed

[1.792] Simple weapon category missile launcher and torpedo launcher not placeable or supported anymore

[1.793] Some fixes to the grid casting- specifically for mouse based building

[1.793] Fixed some graphical artefacts with projectiles

[1.793] You can now remove designs from a force in the map editor to leave a force blank (for MP map design)

    A little Platform I use when building ships, Thought others may be interested in using it.   Crane Platform.blueprint (Size: 64.36 KB / Downloads: 1)
  • [WIP, I might need help]Some kind of Cruiser, I am bad at naming things May 25, 2017
    I've tried building a big ship (as in "longer than 200 metres") for the first time; hull and primary weapons are almost finished, but it still needs detection equipment, a LAMS, smoke, shields, maybe a CIWS, the superstructure is unfinished and it is mostly unpainted. I've this already even though it is not finished because […]
  • Turret not turning all the way [1.969] May 25, 2017
    This is concerning the frontmost turret on the ship only. I've been searching for days but I can't find anything obstructing the turning of it, neither on the hull nor in the constraints. Even with the constraints turned off it does not want to turn fully, only up to about 30° Nothing inside the turret […]
  • Hovercraft Problems. May 25, 2017
    So I'm making a PID hovercraft. It's probably going to be the 2nd best in the 3 that I've made (It was surprisingly stable before I had even added the role and pitch PIDs). It moves fine riiiiiiiight up until the point where it flies up into oblivion. When you put it into fleet move […]
  • Missile changes May 25, 2017
    Hello could someone make a mod that makes 3 new missile components: Unlimited fuel component Variable turn force fin (not affected by missile drag, i want very fast turning missiles with a single fin component) Explosive warhead with the stats of an Tactical Nuke. If someone was kind enough i would be happy!
  • [DWG] Patchwork replacement May 25, 2017
    I've always had a kind of love-hate relationship with the Patchwork - it really fits the rag-tag style of the DWG, but at the same time, much of the design doesn't really read as anything but a lump of wood, and not in a way that fits the concept. It also didn't really have a […]
  • Illuvatix-class Frigate - How the hell do you make good smaller calliber APHE guns? May 25, 2017
    Hey fellas. I was trying out a campaign with a couple of friends who are new to the game and while waiting for them to build their starter vehicles with the available resources I set out to make an APHE Corvette. As usual things got too big and the corvette was a small destroyer. What […]
  • Repaired nukes won't explode again May 25, 2017
    Hey there, i builded an explosive stick, a couple of Woodblocks with one tactical nuke in front. This "stick" is moved by a dockingsation on a Turret. It will explode if it's close to an Objekt(trigered by ACBs), afterwards it will return to the docking station to repair woodblocks and the nuke(ACB health &t; 50%). […]
  • Qonquer Class Multipurpose Fighter May 25, 2017
    Qonquer Class Multipurpose Fighter- Hey! Another fighter! Designed to take a bit more punishment than the ADF-01 Falken. Also designed for more multipurpose roles. It does better against ships compared to the ADF-01. It's the only plane I've ever built that can beat The Flying Squirrel 1v1. Wow, what an achievement. Armament: 6x Multipurpose Missiles […]
  • Atlantis submarine aircraft carrier May 25, 2017
    Based on the supreme commander Atlantis, this behemoth of a submarine is 302 meters long, 111 width, and 57 tall. its fully functional, comes equiped with some pretty nasty torpedoes and its powered by rtgs, so it is pretty expensive. as for defence, it has basically none, no shields, no aa, nothing, so the way […]
