The v0.4.12 has graduated from experimental and is now available on the main branch! To learn more about the patch, see our recent Captain's diary #31:


  • Optimized rendering of common buildings resulting in up to 3x more FPS.
  • Optimized rendering of construction cubes that no longer cause any FPS drop.
  • Optimized game loading which is 2-8x faster.
  • Optimized save datastructures making save files 2-3x smaller.
  • Fixed issues causing consecutive loads consuming more memory and being slower.

Other improvements and fixes

  • [Important] Added ChangeConfigs method to IMod interface allowing mods to change configs. This is not a backwards-compatible change.
  • Building ghosts, construction cubes, and ports now have color based on construction state.
  • Building ghosts now have subtle texture to make them more recognisable.
  • Current weather is now shown as an icon.
  • Fixed that the cargo depot would accept any fluid as fuel instead of just diesel.
  • Fixed cargo depot that could give free fuel when adjusting sliders.
  • Fixed loud sound when quitting the game.
  • Fixed loading of files with special characters such as '['.
  • Fixed a special case where cargo depot did not allow to assign a product
  • Fixed top bar jumping between single and double row when a date length was changing.
  • Clinic now prefers a higher tier of medical supplies if it has multiple types stored.


  • Fixed construction of transport pillars.


  • Fixed entity icons disappearing after upgrade.
  • Fixed tile validation overlay for flipped/rotated entities.


  • Fixed incorrectly highlighted particles during (de)construction.
  • Farm no longer simulates fertility when under initial construction.
  • Fluid colors on storages and transports are now visible immediately after load.


  • Improved how mods are loaded, being able to reference and load dependent DLLs.
  • Added command line arguments useful for modding such as --skip-assets-preload, use --help to list them all.
  • Added XML documentation for all mafi DLLs. It should just show up in your IDE when using mafi APIs.


  • Fixed tree harvester UI that was not properly updating the line to goal.
  • Fixed building (de)construction cancellation that could sometimes result in insta-built entities.
  • Fixed hit-box of chicken farm to not contain an empty area next to it.
  • Fixed issue with balancers when they were configured to have no power consumption.
