Hello, Engineers! Today’s minor release comes with some improvements as the team works towards the next major release. This includes particle fixes for jump drives, character drills and character welders. Additionally, we resolved a number of crashes related to multiplayer.
Owners of the Deluxe version of the game will notice a new badge has appeared in the main menu screen. If you are interested in playing a retro version of Space Engineers from 2013, listening to the entire soundtrack and browsing concept art from the game, check out the Deluxe Edition on the Steam Store.
We are also adding some new features to the ModSDK. This includes a new script that allows modders to quickly fix icons and other UI textures for their mods that haven’t been pre-multiplied by their alpha value. This will bring them up to date with our new sprite rendering changes. The tool was created by our crafty artist Anton Bauer. Simply 'Drag&Drop' your mod’s corrupted Icon / UI - Textures on the supplied batch file and it will compile, overwrite and save your files. All you have left to do after that is re-upload your mod.
Also included in this week's addition to the SDK is our new Font-Tool, with which you can quickly convert any font to a compatible format to be used in the game, literally with the push of a button.
Just as a reminder, we have a Discord server set-up for the discussion of anything related to Keen Software House. This is a great place for you to share creations and ideas, but also to just hang out with fellow engineers: https://discord.gg/KeenSWH
Lastly, next Monday we will be streaming at 7PM CET on the Keen Community Network over on Twitch. The first segment will be with Deepflame looking at Medieval Engineers and the game’s plans for the future and then there will be a Q&A session with Marek and lead artist Natiq, where among other topics, we will be discussing the art in Space Engineers.
