0.3.3.07 – 0.3.3.09 notes

Posted On 26 Jan, 2016

Some small bug fixing and a bit of new content in this patch.

Note: none of these should break existing save games

0.3.3.07

  • fixed a bug that might lead to a crash if you are playing around with spawning a custom ship and decide to roll your face across the keyboard suddenly
  • added a new module type to the game – an activated module that provides a temporary bonus to your ship’s lateral thrust
  • added a fire extinguisher inventory item type and activated effect to the game, but it has no animation so won’t be put into loot tables yet
  • you can now select the first 4 item slots in your inventory via the same keys used to activate ship modules 1-4
  • added code for a new type of nano aura which benefits beam weapons
  • added some new engines
  • fixed the offset on a beam emitter emission point
  • added a new radiator type
  • engines now have a glow effect added to their animation when they enter travel drive
  • added a screen shake effect to the ship interior when taking heavy damage
  • when a duplicate ship id value is detected, the new ship will now fail to spawn instead of replacing the existing ship
  • made ship id generation more thread safe to prevent duplicate id assignments
  • added some new weapons with new particle effects
  • fixed a flak turret research tooltip text
  • added 12 new turret types to singleplayer research loot tables
  • overhauled an SSC frigate design to modern module standards with sensors and shields and a new module unique to that ship
  • upgraded a pirate variant with a new module unique to that ship

0.3.3.08

  • Disabled the sound effect for thrusters because it was causing a crash in OpenAL code when there were lots of 3d sound effects…I hope some day we can find an audio library that simply works, but I’m not making any bets.

0.3.3.09

  • fixed a crash caused by the combination of ships breaking and crew being positioned illegally
  • fixed a bug that prevented ships and wreckage from despawning
  • save games are now a little more respectful of ship id values
