    You fixed the spastically flashing lighted objects issue!!! Oh, yes, hallelujah!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I gravel at your feet!

    {UPDATE: Looking and moving around more carefully I've noticed that lighted objects don't spastically flicker as badly as before; however, lighted objects (e.g., floors) still cycle on-and-off-and-on when moving near lights. (The lights themselves don't flash on-and-off.)}

    Thank you for this one!!

    "Fixed ore detector not detecting ores in specific ranges"

    While this is apparently true, the small block ore detector (maximum range 50m) when set to 25m still detects ore at 90m.

    My blueprints are not creating the groups after welding the blocks, the bluprint has like 5 groups but after completing welding there is no group. Help pls.
  7. Allammo Apprentice Engineer

    Yeay! Curren angle works again!? So cool, need to download this one no matter how much it's gonna cost! Lot of fixes, good job :-D.

    Edit: I confirm current angle works again. Tkank you for that, now I can finish functional wheel transtainer, yeay!

    Edit2: Crapp current angle value is not updating if rotor is not viewed in terminal :-(. It sucks, cheering up in vein. Half of my fleet depands on it, at least 1000 hours will be wasted if it will not get back to pervious behavior.

    I guess I'll have to get back to building stuff simple as brick, with limited automations and more yellow sensors, BTW, do they really have to be so outstanding - not paintable?

    SMH More bugs, connectors, blueprints, groups... sigh .... it would be nice to be able to see the engines firing too...

    Why does SE always start in third-person view now? (Or do I have a case of the dumb?)
  10. mojomann71 Senior Engineer

    Saw was another minor update today, now all of my worlds when I have tried to launch them are at endless loading screens........:?

    Yes I know this isn't the place to report bugs, but Keen too lazy to read them here and I am too lazy creating an account and logging into another forum..... :p

    Is the newest update is on Steam already or is it something wrong with my DS? Every time when I'm trying to update to x.x.104 the SteamCMD says that app was updated successfully and yet on my server still shows x.x.103 version.
  13. Soulthule Apprentice Engineer

    Thank you for the update, but as a request could you please continue listing specific details on crashes. I really like to know what was fixed as I watch for those on my DS and will report if there are still any issues with fix or it leads to another bug. "Fixed various crashes" is just a bit under the detail you usually post! Thanks again for keeping us timely informed.
  14. Keith Stevens Trainee Engineer

    I read that you made the fix to the blue prints and scripts in the programable block. However, I'm still not able to view or even access any of my scripts old or newer ones I've recently subscribed to on Steam. In addition, my blue prints aren't being saved either. When I attempt to use a programable block or blue print, the game freezes and I'm forced to restart my entire PC. Please make the fix and update the community! I also have some ideas for newer engineers who are programmer challenged. It would be cool for the game if there was an option for people who struggle with programming, or are in the process of learning, to have an option that would turn on some of the more popular scripts that make the game really fun (i.e. homing missiles, shields, laser turrets, or even mining drones to fetch resources for you.) I really enjoy this game and look forward to all the exciting things it can produce. I'm in the process of learning C# and I have some really cool ideas to make this game super fun.

    Thank you.

    I guess this is the new thing to do.

    Всем привет! Подскажите пожалуйста, где скачать обновление и как его установить?
  20. Wildcard Trainee Engineer

    The last update pretty much broke projectors and/or welders. I shouldn't have to spend hours trying to get things to print using a weld wall when I'm normally completed in 10 to 15mins and some spot welding with a hand torch. The weld wall setup is solid and has worked flawlessly in the past. Seems a bit more time could be spent with regression testing to prevent these bugs... just a suggestion.

    Here are the symptoms:
    Welders don't weld unless babysitting the job with a hand torch, then maybe they start working but only here and there leaving large areas of projection unfinished. The DS I play on is vanilla, not modded, save for torch cleanup tools. This problem makes the game unplayable for me as I have designs that I refuse to build with a hand torch and limited backpack space. Please investigate this issue.

    **Above was fixed by rep'n welders to 100% health although they were only damaged 2 to 5% or displaying 95% to 98% of full health. Assuming this is a patch anomaly but I'll report back if it continues.

    Bug Side note: Air-tightness still has issues when using half armor blocks or armor slopes above flight seats / consoles. Although the habitat is pressurized (O2 green) when sitting down at the console it shows no O2 (O2 red) and opening face mask causes damage.

    That's just what I was going to say!!
  23. Thales M. Junior Engineer

    Will there be an update before Christmas?
  24. Roxette Senior Engineer

    No sane company would release code at this time on Christmas eve, with all the potential problems over a holiday. But, we're talking about Keen, so... maybe ? ^.^
  25. mojomann71 Senior Engineer

    Never say never, so let's go with doubtful. :D

    How about a video teaser?
  27. [XGN] XLency Trainee Engineer

    I'm kind of sick of the amount of bugs popping up almost every update. They constantly add new things to the game instead of fixing the things already broken. One major example of this is turrets being unable to target incoming missiles. When set to specifically target incoming missiles, the turrets will not fire. Keen really needs to stop breaking Space Engineers. First it was dedicated servers, and now we lose pretty much all anti-missile defense. This is a key feature in the game, and the fact that it's been going on for over a month with no fixes is astonishing. I like Space Engineers. I really do. But this is very poor work from seemingly lazy developers for a game that should have left the early access beta a few years ago. The reason I say they're lazy is because there's no announcements or messages to say what the planned fixes for the next update will be. In the end, we have no way to see what issues are being addressed, and whether or not a more important issue should be addressed first.

    @[XGN] XLency I am guessing you are new to the game. Tis the nature of the beast in these parts of the woods. :)

    Yup. I say the same thing about everything I buy these days...from skivvies to airline tickets...you pay your money and you take your chances. There are no guarantees in life that you'll get exactly what you want.
  30. [XGN] XLency Trainee Engineer

    I'm not new. I've been playing for a good 4 or so years now. It's just that you'd think a game this popular would have better management and support. It clearly has neither of those things. We sort of have to wait on the edge of our seats for who knows how long for a fix that may or may not come around. But if a vital piece of the game is broken that badly, you should expect a fix within the first 2 weeks of the bug popping up. But nope. It's been over a month and there's not even a progress on when or even IF the bug will be fixed.
