Beta 26.3 is out now! This update includes a few fixes to VR and ship racing! We’ve also dropped the rule that crews can only try each Ion Race once. While the previous implementation may have been more realistic, this way is more convenient and less prone to misunderstandings.
Besides that, we’ve also made some large changes to how Steam VR bindings work. The default bindings for both the Vive and Rift controllers have been updated, and players should now be able to use the Steam controller configuration system to quickly customize their bindings. We’ve also made bindings for the Index, though we don’t currently have knuckle controllers to test them on, so we can’t entirely vouch for them. That being said, players using the Index should be able to customize those bindings however they wish.
- Added some additional information regarding kicks and bans (as well as how to reverse them) in the kick confirmation menu
- Crews can now re-try the Ion Races after losing. They can retry by reloading a save made during the race or leaving the sector and returning.
- Added the ability to activate personal cloak for Sylvassi characters in the Order (Z) menu
- Tweaked the Interceptor’s shower doors so that they open further away, and it’s less likely for players to run through them
- Changed the position of the captain’s log screen on the Interceptor so its action prompt doesn’t interfere with the captain’s locker action prompt
- Made some changes to what information loads first when a level is loaded.
- Tweaked turret rotation math to possibly yield smoother results in certain circumstances
