This week's minor update brings a new type of distance sensor!
The laser distance sensor will detect the distance to an object that it is pointing at and has an increased range of 2000m. It projects a visible beam to make it easier to distinguish where the sensor is hitting, and has a selectable infrared mode so that the beam is only visible to IR cameras.
The full patch notes can be found below.
