    Summary
    This week we are adding collision/impact sounds for all metal objects - tools, components and ships. The final sound is dependent on the mass of the objects. Heavier items produce louder and more bassy sounds.
    Also, music is now divided into different categories (space, planet, building, fighting etc) and played according to the current game situation e.g. building theme when building, fighting theme when fighting. Connectors should be much more stable after today's update as we have introduced something that we call "connector welding". They now function similar to landing gears where two ships connecting together will become one physical object. Finally, weapon spread has been added to the game.

    Attention:
    From Update 01.133 on, the game will need Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1 to run. All dedicated server admins should update their .NET installations.
    Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=49981
    If you are a regular player (and not a server admin) you do not need to worry. Steam will update .NET for you.
    Thanks for your understanding!

    *cough* pointless update which took them 7 days to make.

    I love how updates that I've never even heard of as bugs, make it in week by week.
    But a game breaking bug which is very very very easily reproducible on many computers and copies of the game, as I have found few of, remain present over half a year later without ever being even remotely addressed.

    *EDIT*
    Dawwww did I poop on people's parades? So many dislikes for simply stating a fact.....dawwwww.....

    lmfao.......

    Improved connectors sounds very promising. It used to always be that they were safer than landing gear, then landing gear got fixed and somehow connectors became the deadly weapon. Glad to see this change and looking forward to testing it out.

    Little sad to see that there's no mention of a fix for the 'gyro ship rotation' bugs on DS yet, three weeks we've had that now.

    "Connectors behave like Landing Gears now."

    Sooooo they've become bombs?

    Have you fixed the actual Problem with the Atmospheric thrusters?

    Problem: If you use them and press the crouch button to throttle the power for a landing maneuver, the Atmo ship will stand in the air insted of getting lower.

    Sorry, can't explain it so good because the english language gives me some times some problems if I try to explain things. ^^

    I've been wanting that contextual music for a while. I hate the intense music while just doing light base maintenance and chill music while dodging fire.

    A good update this, with many things I've been hoping for for a while, especially the contextual music, although I'm not sure how it judges when and when isn't a battle,
    Fixes for the connectors! Very happy about that, big thanks :D And the new collision sounds sound pretty nifty too, sounds like clang has a new orchestra,

    Weapon spread wasn't covered in the video? Guess I'm going to have to start the game up to see what this one is about, Great work guys!

    Good news on the connectors!

    Unfortunately it looks like the 'impossible to go down on a planet with no downwards engines' issue is still there. I'm guessing that however it got broken it's not a trivial fix but can you give some idea as to how long? Could it sneak into tomorrows patch? If not I'm going to have to start bolting temporary additional engines to atmospheric ships.

    I don't have downwards thrusters on my escape pod, for obvious reasons, and it works in multi player. Is this a DS issue?

    Is this the "Stable" release that Marak mentioned in his Blog?

    "in the coming weeks we will start updating both Medieval Engineers and Space Engineers on two branches – one stable branch, and a second development branch."
    1) The stable branch will be the default branch. In other words, if players do nothing, they will be playing on the stable branch. If you would like to access the development branch, you'll need to change to it on Steam (instructions for how to do this will be posted when the change is made).

    The sounds need more "screech" of metal rubbing metal - on top of the loud bassy booms.
