Patchnotes via Steam Community
Coming off last week's polish updates is a focus on vastly improved interactions along with a full upgrade to the Gameplay Options!

Gameplay Options

We added a slew of fresh new options to suit a wide variety of gameplay tastes. Want to tame down survival gameplay and focus on building? We got that. Want a hard-core-hard-science experience? We got that too. These options are available for your Single Player and Private Universe campaigns. Public Servers will be set to Normal for now.

Chisel Interaction

Working from the technology recently added to the Multi Tool, we’ve added a damage meter when mining minerals with the Chisel. The chisel also has an intelligent reticle in both first and third person modes to illustrate what is in range.

Third Person Melee

We spent the bulk of the week on 3rp person melee. First, we needed to make sure the weapon swing occurred over the center of the screen to coincide with the reticle. This was accomplished with complex math rotations on top of the motion capture animation data. Then, the trigger sphere from each weapon mathematically calculates the precise position of the hit for proper FX and damage dealing. We also added a raycast from the center of the screen at precisely the right time per swing to calculate detection from the camera, then compare the data from the swing sphere and raycast to find the proper result. Finally, a simple animation speed adjustment when a hit occurs creates the feeling of collision. Also, when holding a melee weapon the camera is brought in to showcase the action. When added all together, we find the 3rd person melee feels very satisfying, responsive, and consistent.

Durability and Hardness

Every surface and melee weapon now has hardness. This is scientifically based on Moh’s hardness scale and each mineral now displays the correct hardness value. Your default chisel is made of steel and therefore has a hardness of 7. Hit any material less than 7 and the chisel will not lose durability. Hit an object over 7 and it will lose durability.

Once durability of an item is depleted it no longer is destroyed - this was far too punishing and not good design. Instead, the item enters a fully degraded state, flashes red, and can still be used but will deal less damage. All items can easily be repaired on the Repair Table.

Utility Interactions

We’ve added proper contextual subtitles to many of the Structures and Utilities in the game, describing states/uses for each.

For example, the 3D Printer requires power to use. If it does not have power the Printer does not light up and the HUD displays it does not have power. Build a nearby Solar Panel and the Printer lights up and is fully interactable. We’ll be adding this functionality to all Utilities and Structures as we go.

Stackable Storage

First, we tracked down the bug preventing the Depository from stacking. Then we added functionality to make other items stack, and added this to the Space Debris Chest!

Here's a video that showcases some of this week's features:

As always, be sure to check out our official Roadmap: Osiris: New Dawn - Roadmap

We hope you enjoy this week’s build! We have some pretty big stuff coming right around the corner, and also like the gains we’re seeing from polishing details. Therefore we plan on focusing a third of our effort to new material, a third to polish/balancing, and a third to bug fixes/stability. So ~33.3% for each, if my math is correct.

Light speed is too slow,
