They have staging build for 7 hours (means they worked till like 3-4AM trying to fix it ;]) and, hopefully, we should expect it to go live in few hours ;)

Well, hopefully. I am now trying to irrigate BB number 5 and building the pipe is an immediate crash.

I was just playing a game on Volcanea and doing my best to fend off the encroaching heat. It was looking doubtful that I'd be able to react in time and I was loving every second of it. Then I hooked up my sieve for the first time and BAM! Black hole!

Kudos to the devs for making such a fun game, and I hope very much that "crunch time" is balanced for them.

but if not we'll revert the optimizations until next week so you can play over the weekend.

Thanks, that makes me happy enough.

Hope you guys get some rest as well.

Not sure if it helps but Ive been testing what crashes it, seems to boil down to anything that can transfer heat and once you connect all the pipes together the "Optimization" code? crashes it. for some reason, connected the pipes to a single line which leads to a bridge fixes the directional bug though.

I wonder if the changes they are making to pipes will make the "mechanical filter" fail? Should be fun to see what kind of threads spawn from such a change. :)

I'm getting a hard freeze where the game just doesn't respond at all and then Windows asks if I want to kill it. I may very well be because of connection pipes together as what was mentioned above, so this may not be a new bug perse.

Don't worry about it. There will be new version of mechanical filter after new bridge rules set down without crash. I bet few hours after update. Maybe even few minutes after.

I suspect they are attempting to fix all of the trivial looping you can set up in the game. Cooling loops, mechanical filters, and sieve loops could all be at risk. I notice the devs never made infinite loops in their dev talk videos. If my theory is correct, I’m gonna need a hell of a lot more power to run my bases! But, I’m hoping the result will leave an entry level player with realistic expectations around pipes.

YAY! I'm hopping up and down here, counting the seconds until the next upgrade. The preview stuff made me fricking giddy and crazy hyped for ONI again, so being unable to play because of this annoying bug is NOT good for my sanity.. or what's left of it anyway.

 

So GIMME GIMME GIMME! that uuupdate..

Unfortunetely no .. but he did say if they cant get it fixed by todays patch they will roll back the change that is causing the break so we can play over the weekend..

 

In the meantime you can play .. pretty stable as well as long as you dont build any pipes.  Theres tons I can do before I actually "need" pipes so this is working for me for now.

I think there is a way, but its pretty complicated, youll have to look up how to roll back a version using steam. 

If your just wanting to play the game for now, you can opt out of the beta and it will roll you back to QOL 3 for now.

I wish it were that simple or me.. the stuff I want to mess around with requires piping, and probably complicated setups to boot.

I'm on cycle 53 and my dupes are still using outhouses! I'm worried they are going to stage a (smelly) coup
