First impressions, not full feedback
Didn't have much time to check all of the new features. My main concern at first was what changes I would need to make to my mods.
I like the new blocks with a couple of remarks:
1. The Basic Assembler should require less power - probably the same as Basic Refinery.
2. The Hydrogen Engine has some bugs that I tried to explain in a bug topic here.
3. The Survivor Kit can only process Stone. Apparently Stone now gives trace amounts of some other ingots but it's not very clear.
I am very disappointed with the Cockpit screens. After seeing the teaser I genuinely thought you might integrate LCDs in the cockpits but there are no extra options in the control panel and I don't see any obvious way to put anything else but the static texture they come with.
Also I don't get the new temperature indicator. Is it not fully implemented yet?
You are asking for opinions about changed inventory size but to be honest I didn't notice any change there. Probably because I was testing with standard size without multipliers.
I like the idea behind the Respawn changes but I thought it would filter the closest spawn options and only give me a few of them. Instead it didn't give me any option and directly spawned me in the closest one. Perhaps you should be able to choose when there are more than 1 on the closest grid or something like that.
As for the other changes, I will try to test them as well if I have more time later and give more feedback.
