    Summary
    Hello Engineers! This week’s update brings a fresh batch of bug fixes and improvements. The visual scripting tool should be working for everyone as we fixed some issues and crashes related to it so now you can get to work on your very own campaigns and scenarios! We also increased the number of characters allowed for LCDs to just over 100,000. Bugs fixed this week include a phantom power drain when using a merge block, the view distance setting not updating and the rifle continuing to fire after going to the ESC menu. Lastly, many crashes were resolved, including ones related to the use of local mods.



    Fixes
    - fixed crash while pasting specific blueprints on DS
    - fixed ingame script finalizers crashing the game
    - fixed rare crash related to Refinery
    - fixed fire disappearing when shooting reactors, gravity generators, cockpits and other blocks
    - fixed spotlight losing glare effect after being repainted
    - fixed Vegetation View Distance not changing in game
    - fixed personal light turning off when using remote control
    - fixed phantom power drain when using merge block
    - fixed outdated instructions in step 1 of tutorial 8
    - fixed gun particles at close range
    - removed breathing, suffocating and oxygen sounds for creative mode
    - increased number of characters for LCD panels to 100,000 characters
    - fixed issue with conveyor sorter working even when turned off
    - fixed rifle shooting constantly after entering the menu
    - hitting trees should no longer make the trees fly away into the atmosphere
    - GitHub source code updated ;)

    Rotors have been given a gym subscription and were told to work out more. They are now buffed up and calling everyone "brah" and asking us if we want to do cross fit (Yes they were fixed).

    If you hit the tree at a certain angle with a certain speed with a certain ship they might fly out. They do not fly out of the atmosphere but if you a 6000 block ship to hit a tree on a mountain at full speed its gonna fly out of the amosphere.

    Why?:(
    I enjoyed that a lot... Could you guys make it optional at least? Please?

    The other fixes are great, even though I enjoyed blowing trees sky-high.

    There was a bug where you would hear choking sounds if you removed the visor and the sounds would continue even after lowering the visor. Resulting in having nonstop grunting and choking sounds.

    Haven't stepped down on the planet in a while, do trees still reappear or can they be removed permanently now?

    Kudos to the guy who made that Walker. I imagine that things must have blown up in all directions several times with those pistons and rotors. I also had another piston go boom on me recently when turning a station into a ship (was not attached to any voxel). A piston blew up immediately and sent the whole ship hurling away with a big hole in it's belly. Wasn't much of a problem as the ship was merely being stored for scrapping (it was an encounter ship that had received damage before).

    After 2 weeks checked in to see if anything that matters has changed even a bit, no. Like curing cancer with plasters, do tell when to expect some real results. This is stagnant and uninformative, bad combination.

    Merge Block phantom power drain? Interesting... this may fix a long-standing thorn in my side when merging the starter lander onto a station/merge block attached to the ground on Survival. That 10Mw power drain that wouldn't go away unless you restarted the game was a major nuisance. Will test this evening to confirm.

    Too funny.. just read an old sci-fi short story about a ship, a cabin it was transporting. Ship failure. Ship ruined Strapping an engine on a pile of lumber from the unconstructed cabin and using Jupiter to slingshot to one of the moons as a last chance survival more. Logs in space.. lol

    but you have to fix the bug that when parking the small spacecraft in a big truck through the atterragio the great ship wobbled and burst random things - Google Translate

    As a forum rule, please stick to English, as it is the forum common language. Anyway, as Translate has a problem with a few of your words, I only have a guesstimate of what you mean. Which is, something about when you connect a small ship to a large ship, you do something, and it explodes. I can only assume you mean landing gears, as those are the most likely parts to explode. But, usually, stuff like that only occurs in DS MP.
    Any anyway, something like this should be posted in 'Bug Reports' not 'Change Log.'

    P.S. I found out you misspelled 'atterraggio' ; atterraggio means landing
    so retranslated:
    but you have to fix the bug that when parking the small spacecraft in a large landing gear through the great ship wobbled and burst random things
    So you have a problem docking small ships using large landing gears!? Don't do that. They aren't supposed to be used that way. Just use small ship landing gears, or, if you want to be safe, just use connectors. They use little space, imo, and are so much safer than landing gears.
    Cheers m8.

    oh my, it almost looks like the arms on that welder can articulate a little bit... Any chance we may get a "Displacement" setting for welders with the new model?

    Using large landing gear to park/hold small ships used to be a thing because having the landing gear on the ship that is then locked to the other body had problems. IMO, it make sense that this should work even with the improved stability of the landing gear in general. The use of connectors only might be safe but for those like myself want a little more "realism" and put some constraints on our building. Having a large ship dock to the side of a base or only from its belly while on a planet looks wrong to me. How is this massive 1 million kg ship being held in the air by this tiny (relative) connector while the thrusters are off (to not waste power)?
