v1.1.18 - The Impact Sensor and Contact Sensor Update!

Dear Stormworkers,

This week we add 2 new parts - the impact sensor and the contact sensor!

The impact sensor is simple - it measures acceleration, and if that acceleration is above the threshold you set - it outputs an ON signal.

The contact sensor is much more complex! This is a physics based push button that detects when it is depressed. The square pad on this button can be pushed in by any physics object, and you can set the spring stiffness yourself in the settings, to adjust the force required to activate.

Applications for the contact sensor includes limit switches for your robotic systems, sensing your environment, or triggering actions on contact such as warning buzzers or... detonating naval mines!

While these components were developed as part of the weapons update, we thought their use is quite broad, and all players will find useful applications outside of weapons systems.

As always, some minor fixes and improvements are included. Please see the patch notes below.

We continue to work on the new major and minor updates! Thank you to all who have provided feedback and ideas for new updates - we have plenty on the way and some new exciting parts and systems.

We are also very interested in fixing any issues or bugs with the game - if you want anything fixed - please use the "report a bug" button in game, and give a specific, clear description and exact steps to reproduce! If we can reproduce the bug, there is a good chance we can fix it. Please be patient with the existing support site which is a bit slow - we are working on a new issue tracking website!

Much love <3,

The Stormworks Developers
