Update 01.017.010 has been released. We have added the multiplayer chat and rebalanced the Heavy Armor strength so now it can sustain a much larger amount of damage comparing to the Light Armor. Also added ammo models and icons and the option to disable the weapons in multiplayer mode.

- multi-player chat added (press Enter to write, another Enter to send)
- heavy armor resistance. In the previous update we added heavy armor, but its resistance when compared to light armor wasn't large enough. This update rebalanced heavy armor strength and now it can sustain a lot more damage (missile explosions, bullet impacts, collisions, warhead explosion). Try it!
- ammo models and icons
- when pasting, CTRL + mouse wheel can be used to move paste position closer/further
- option to disable multiplayer weapons
- ladders have been replaced with passage blocks due to complicated implementation of the climbing in various gravity settings. Now, you can create passages either horizontaly or verticaly and fly or walk through by using your jetpack.

- fixed velocity of rotating blocks when split
- rewritten toolbar, now saved with world
- fixed missile collision damaged blocks (sometimes it went through)
- fixed open/close door issue
- fixed cube building gizmo
- fixed pasting active drill
- fixed 3rd person camera rotation

Update 01.017.011
- fixed player count slider in player screen (F3)

Update 01.017.012
- fixed Gatling guns shooting itself
- fixed negative rotation torque
- fixed rare crash in copy-paste
- fixed rare exit cockpit crash
- fixed start-up issues with missing Tahoma font

I love you devs!

This is amazing, this update feels like 5 updates in one!

You know you've had too much for dinner when afterward you get to the sitting room, lie on a beanbag, and discover - there is no beanbag.

You don't need a spacesuit to go out of an airlock, you only need a spacesuit to go out of an airlock twice.

Great news.

But please next time also fix Heavy armor weight on small ships. At the moment not only is it more resistant than light armor, but it also weight less ! ( heavy armor cube is 120kg when light armor is 200kg )

I wait for these updates to play again.
My "slideshow" ship ... if , in this map nothing exists but this one whip , this ship has powered everything like lamps ,the big lamps which names I just forgot , all the engines, gyroscopes, and gravity generators ... then I have about one frame per second...
