    Summary
    This week we're bringing you an exciting update: the new GPU particles we've been teasing you with for the past few months! Please note that these are a work in progress, and we still have some tweaks and adjustments to make. Nearly every particle in the game has been redone and converted into GPU particles, allowing us to render many simultaneously without negatively affecting performance. We would also really like to hear your feedback and opinions on the particles, so be sure to tell us what you think in the comments or on our forums.
    We're also releasing the first batch of decals along with particles today. There are now decals for missile and bullet impacts, which should make your ships and stations look much more like they’ve been through battle.

    - new GPU particles
    - projectile impact decals

    Fixes
    - fixed text shadow textures
    - fixed crash when using mirroring with modded blocks

    - fixed marker display setting also affects button tooltips

    Update 006

    Time to blow stuff up I guess.

    *edit*

    Sparks should not fall "down?" in space...

    Maybe in artificial gravity?

    *edit*

    Flames in space will not trail behind unless the ship is accelerating, if the ship is moving at a constant speed the flames will not trail behind the ship.

    Awesome!! Can we in a future update have an option to turn off the screen warp with warp drives? It can be disorienting.

    This looks amazing! Are the particles affected by gravity? It looked like they are in the video, but I didn't see much example of them just floating away into space as you would expect in the _absence_ of gravity.

    Awesome particles! For once, the glass in the video was clean. Has the glass been fixed for good?

    @Xocliw No Galaxy jumping for the video? :(

    Edit: oh. Well, now i know why. It doesn't work properly. At all. Video soon.

    [​IMG]

    Not sure how i'd describe what i'm seeing, probably "flashy needles falling on the carpet" but.... well... this' broken.

    Edit 2:

    Edit 3: for a smaller ship it works better but still broken compared to teaser and update video:

    The devs removed the film that's similar to the camera film texture, on the loading screen! Whoop!
