Patch besides multiple small improvements, introduces 3 big changes to Penkura. First update is directed to our save/load system, "load game" section was written from the ground up, game will now load from 10 to 60 % faster depending on save size (Previous save files created on earlier version of this system won't be corrupted, system will adjust old saves to new system).

Another big update is directed to our camera/models rendering almost every model in Penkura was adjusted to new occlusion system which lowered render requirements up to 15 % in certain locations players on weaker machines should see a performance boost from these changes.
Last big update was done to our Biometer Ring.

From the start we planned Penkura to have an as minimalistic user interface as possible, because of that we need to provide the player with a lot of data in a different way. Handheld Map system already provides a lot of data on player and points of interest location, map size, but basic information on player status was accessible only by Biometer Ring, located on user's wrist, we feel that this is not enough.

From now on, Biometer Ring will provide voice cues in critical moments, such as when the player starts to lose oxygen, or his vital sinds drop to a critical level. In future patches, we will add even more communication between the player and the game environment.

And as always, for more information about the updates, progress and known bugs please join our Discord Community.
