    Summary
    Hello, Engineers! This week’s minor update release contains more crash fixes and general improvements as the team continues work towards the next major release.
    We are also happy to announce that we are releasing an updated 3D model obj exporter today that will work with the latest version of the game (CTRL+ALT+E). This will allow you to create 3D prints of your creations and upload them to sites like Sketchfab, opening up many new ways to share what you build in Space Engineers. You can even add a Sketchfab model to the Steam Workshop page of a creation, providing an interactive preview to other players before they use it in-game.

    For today’s work in progress section I would like to talk about the status of improved rotors and pistons in multiplayer. The VRAGE engine team are working tirelessly on this and have made significant advancements. Here is Bruce LeedleLeedleLee’s Arx Heavy Battletank which features working tracks. It also happens to be a vehicle the programmers are using for testing both sync and performance.
    As you can see, it’s an impressive and incredibly fascinating build which can move at surprisingly high speeds. While it works OK in singleplayer, there are numerous desync issues with it in the current multiplayer implementation. However; the team have now actually managed to get this working in multiplayer on one of our internal prototype builds with minimal desync. You can look forward to hearing more about this and similar improvements in the coming weeks.

    In other news, next Monday we will be streaming at 7PM CEST on the Keen Community Network over on Twitch. The first segment will be with Deepflame looking at Medieval Engineers and it’s upcoming major release which includes a shovel tool and a UI redesign. Later in the stream, there will be a Q&A session with Marek and other members of the KeenSWH team.

    I plan to just import it into Unity, or any other VR supporting engine that loads custom models

    Hmmm...unless that's the Unity from "Rick and Morty", you lost me. :) I'll wait to see you post about your success first.

    Cool. I have to say I am liking this update system better than how you guys used to do it :)

    edit----------
    For me, the game is working better now than it has in a long time....came around the same time you guys switched how you did updates. I assume it has something to do with that which is why I am happy with it.

    Yay! more extra functions, but still not stability fixes to the inventory. Game is unplayable.
    Love this game, hate the lack of stabilisation effort.
    Please get this optimised for DS multiplayer. Ive only been waiting 2 years so far.................
    (sent with a hint of sarcasm).

    What i don't get is that the clangy monstrosity know as the Strandbeest works fine.
    While my simple robotic arm unlocks all subgrids of the vehicle and sends it off flying to space.

    ahh a vehicle with tracks takes me back to the days of incredibots
    ...that ol 2d sandbox game where you clicked and dragged to create square,circle and triangle shapes followed by adding joints,motor points and pistons.
    things didn't explode but they tended to ...........stretch

    making tank tracks was always enjoyable

    It looked like the Cursor. Pretty sure it's in the arena combat scenario. That or it was the Thunderhog, my memory is very fuzzy right now.

    My DS runs smoother than silk, if it's been 2 years you should probably give it another go.
