My feedback/suggestions during the latest public test.

Under Consideration

First of all, a big thanks to everyone working on this. The optimizations appear to be making a big difference. I haven't seen sim speed drop below 1.0 the entire test, and the game seems to run much more smoothly than before. I'm really enjoying it.

I'll keep it short and to the point:

  • The changes to the way ship drills work is fantastic! Makes it much easier to drill a straight tunnel when all of the drills act as one combined unit, instead of individually.
  • I'm really glad you added the ability to change the colors of GPS locations, it makes it much easier to pick out the important ones.
  • Now all we need is a way to select more than one GPS in our terminal to quickly enable/disable them on the HUD, or copy/paste them.

Something not related to this test, but something that I wish the game had for a long time now, would be to have the ability to set specific values within timer block triggers. So if I were to set up a timer block to increase thrust override/rotor speed/etc. I could specify how much to increase that setting. Or maybe even the ability to set to a specific value using a timer block, that would be incredible. :)

With all the limitation are in the server it is not difficult to have less lag. This is not an optimization if you can't have more than 5 drills or can't use scripts.

Also after the update Rotors are broken, they turn only in one direction, wheels now since years keep exploding even just running on flat surfaces. Loading time when there are digged voxels is too long.

If optimizing the MP it means we can't use anything or just something it is just useless.

Plus if all you need are only those few things good for you, many other players need much much more so better you speak for yourself.

Except the optimizations that have been made will apply to all servers, not only the official ones. There are plenty of other servers that will benefit that do not have restrictions on drills, or scripts.

That's why this is a public TEST. Make a bug report about it.


wheels now since years keep exploding even just running on flat surfaces.
Drive slower. Wheels are incredibly durable, I use them in place of landing gear on my heavy ships because they are much more likely to survive the impact with the ground.

Loading time when there are digged voxels is too long.
That is subjective, I don't have that issue. You either need a better internet connection, or a better computer, or both.

If optimizing the MP it means we can't use anything or just something it is just useless.
I'm not exactly sure what you mean by this. Nothing has been taken away by these optimizations. In fact, the PCU limit has been drastically increased, so your statement is nonsense.

Plus if all you need are only those few things good for you, many other players need much much more so better you speak for yourself.
First of all, what I posted was merely a short list of some of the things that I really liked pertaining to the changes that this update will bring. It is not an exhaustive list of reasons I play this game. If the restrictions on the official servers are too much for you, then play on one of the community servers.

Secondly, I am speaking for myself, literally. It clearly says in the title "MY FEEDBACK". I have no idea why you decided to comment on my post with your whining, but I really do not appreciate it. Especially since you apparently have no idea what your talking about.

Until this update is stable and released, it's going to be hosted on an official server for TESTING purposes. Which means there will be certain restrictions in place same as all the other official servers. Deal with it, or go back to the main branch and play on a server that suits your needs. Your comments are completely unhelpful to the development of this update.

The title of your feedback may be "MY FEEDBACK" but when you write "Now all we need is a way to select more than one GPS in our terminal to quickly enable/disable them on the HUD, or copy/paste them." it seems you are talking about everybody and not only about you and this I do not appreciate because many people instead think that this game, including me, needs to be finished still. So many things are missing in fact people need to use to fill the gap many MODS and Scripts that obviously may impact on the game performances.

I decided to comment your post because it is possible to do so, if you don't like or appreciate I do not care at all, you can still not post anything if you don't like someone make a comment.

My internet connection reaches 1000 M/s so that can't be that one the problem for the long loading time (but too bad there are not enough server to well cover all the areas and I can't get a ping that is less then 140), my PC neither unless an i9 with a RTX 2080 Ti game installed on a Samsung SSD M2 and 64 Gb Ram become already obsolete.

When I enter the server the server is very slow, if I'm in a cryostatic chamber I can't go out for may be a couple of minutes and this is a fact.
