The v0.4.11 has graduated from experimental and is now available on the main branch! To learn more about the patch, see our recent Captain's diary #30:

New Features

  • Unlocked buildings are now highlighted in menus until they are selected for the first time.
  • Added an option to auto-return the main ship after exploration when there are no more reachable locations to explore.
  • Added a new edict that reduces ship fuel consumption by 10%.
  • Added an option to make ships 50% slower to save 30% of fuel per trip.

Cargo ships and contracts balancing

  • Increased cargo ship capacity by 2x, fuel consumption by almost 2x. World mines buffers were also increased to accommodate.
  • Larger cargo ships are now more fuel efficient per trip.
  • Decreased total travel duration of cargo ships from 3.3 to 3 months.
  • Increased cargo depot modules unloading speed, the highest tier now unloads the ship in just one month.
  • Increased profit on copper, iron and quartz contracts.
  • Increased profit on contracts selling coal and vehicle parts 2.
  • Added new contract: consumer electronics -> quartz.

Other balancing

  • IMPORTANT: Gas rotary kiln changed to return CO2 instead of Exhaust.
  • Reduced coal consumption of the silicon recipe in the Arc furnace II by 50%.
  • Reduced computing consumption of Arc furnace II from 6 to 4.
  • Increased the throughput of Chemical plant for graphite production from CO2 by 2x.
  • Reduced transports building duration by 80%.

Other fixes and improvements

  • Retaining walls are no longer buildable on terrain designations and vice versa. This should prevent issues with mining/dumping over the walls. A new console command toggle_terrain_designations_over_entities can revert this change for power users.
  • Renamed "Liquid nitrogen" to "Nitrogen tank" as it is a unit product.
  • Fixed UI that was not clickable in some cases in windowed mode.
  • Transport snapping is always enabled when no transport is selected. This allows snapping to ports and other transports when starting transport construction.
  • Fixed that entities with reserved ocean area such as ocean pump/dump could block ship access of the cargo depot/shipyard indefinitely.
  • Fixed the "Recover ocean access" action. Note that all ocean areas will be recomputed after loading this game version which may cause entities being newly blocked or unblocked.
  • Improved ocean area recovery action that now shows what is blocking the ocean area if the recovery fails.
  • Fixed vehicle dust particles that were not emitted properly in some circumstances.
  • Increased vehicle dust particles visibility distance and optimized their rendering.
  • Fixed buffers clearing to only clear buffers of unassigned recipes that are not used by any assigned recipe.
  • Toggling of planning mode no longer cancels the current building session (e.g. cut & paste).
  • Fixed that toggling prod. level on world mine did not reduce workers when it had full buffer
  • Fixed a rare case where a settlement transformer would not work for settlements with low population.
  • Fixed internal buffers in the Maintenance depot that could accumulate large amounts of maintenance.
  • Fixed a rare issue with terrain data serialization that could lead to corrupted save files.
  • Fixed incorrect shortcuts shown when insta-copying transports.
  • Partial execution for recipes was changed to kick in only when no other recipe can be satisfied fully.
  • Added UI showing the state of supply of fuel rods in the nuclear reactor.
  • Improved error tooltips and other places for colorblind accessibility.
  • Excavators no longer forcibly turn on their lights during game pause.
  • Updated translations, thanks to everyone who is contributing!
