    Summary
    Happy New Year, Engineers! For the first update of 2017 we present you with some nice bugfixes as planned. The inventory desync problems have been resolved and a weird bug with ghost plants on your farms has been busted. Keep the bug reports coming, so we can make the game as smooth as possible for you: http://forums.keenswh.com/forums/bug-reports.415209/



    Fixes
    - Added a craft-button to the campfire and furnace blocks.
    - Compound building is now enabled by default as it should have been, rather than wait for the first time you touch a compound key.
    - Scared away red-nose deer and cleaned up Christmas festivities, taking down the tree is your responsibility.
    - Fixed character colour issue when the value was set too low.
    - Fixed tooltip for Iron Works not displaying it unlocked farming.
    - Fixed inventory desync issues, inventories should now be working correctly.
    - Fixed dead farmable plants that would occasionally remain visible as living plants.
    - Fixed a crash that could occur when trying to test dynamic placement mode on some grids.
    - Fixed the game preferring the base definitions over modded definitions thus preventing mods from loading correctly.

    Update 0.4.3.91944:
    - Fixed visibility of multiblocks while trying to place it, sometimes it would be invisible while it should just have been a ghost.
    - Fixed several issues related to farming plants. They should be working correctly again.
    - Fixed grid merging which caused small grids to spontaneously detach from castles.
    - Fixed exploit with ropehook deconstruction and similar resource cost exploits.
    - Fixed rotation of multiblocks in cramped locations.
    - Fixed plow, seeder and harvester rotations.
    - Removed wheat straw from tile roofs.

    Update 0.4.3.91990:
    - More farming fixes!

    Nice mod, @peaceman.
    That's such an obvious feature. It should be vanilla.

    Same issue here. Plants that were before just not growing simply disappear after grow stage one. It's not every crop, though; just certain clusters...very weird.

    Yeah, we are aware of this issue as well. Somehow, the plants are skipping growth steps occasionally. We're working on figuring it out! :)

    You may have rodents in your field. Mice. Hamsters. They chew away your cabbage when you are somewhere else. :woot: - Hm, that brings me an idea for another NPC mod...

    I really do need to get my mitts on this game sometime.

    take a nice break from engineering witchcraft and tales of journeying in the stars with crafts made from metal propelled by ice and yellow flames.

    Is there a way to get rid of a forest without plowing the ground? Because I have a nice spot but a forest is ruining it.

    Just ran the update today, and now I get a crash to desktop when joining my server. It happens right as I get the option to spawn, and objects start loading into the world.

    I want to lead with this. I love this game and it has an extraordinary amount of potential, but the Dedicated Server files have been broken for the last few updates. Considering that the server improves physics performance by as much as it does, it's almost a necessity. It's having the same missing scenario issue that has already been resolved on Space Engineers. Please let me know of any workarounds or if you are even aware of the issue.
