Love this, much needed buff; the place I always need the most sweeping is the bottom of high-traffic ladders, which just so happened to be where Sweepy struggled the most to sweep.

Now just give me the option to bury my heroic Rovers in tasteful memorials instead of simply deconstructing them, and I will be pleased with the state of all my mechanical friends.

Next ONI short: 

Abe is happily running around giving everyone balloons until he runs into Rover, who makes a negative sound and moves his "hands" down and away to not take a balloon.

Not to be dissuaded, Abe tapes the string of the balloon to Rover, in doing so Rover gets zapped with some static electricity and his face is transformed into a smile and the balloon carries him off into space... *outro music*

I'm not sure if this is a good place to suggest it, but could klei consider fixing/adding ranching exp on grooming since overall improvement of the game is currently being worked on? I know there's a mod that does this, but it would be nice if this functionality had true dev support. Unless, of course, this doesn't fit in the dev's vision on the skill, in which case, nvm i guess lol

Feel free to make poll thread yourself - I sometimes do that to both satisfy my curiosity and give Klei more quantified feedback. Klei does really good job when reacting to our feedback and they do read the forums. Eg. one of the DLC features (IMO best one, made my whole month) was enabling to demolish POI items, something requested a lot

Having this said - one need no poll to know that vox populi demands pliers, airlocks and diseases. DLC was a good opportunity to implement those, shame they did not, but I still hope

Since yesterday's update I've now been having trouble where if you change/add/delete modules on a rocket, dupes can no longer navigate in or out. If they're outside they can navigate right to the door but not the space inside; if they're already inside they'll just idle. I'm guessing it might be related to this fix. It is extremely frustrating as I generally reconfigure rockets after every landing, especially during an exploratory away mission. The workaround is to save and reload but I'm late in the game and that process sometimes takes 3-5 minutes. I'll try to get you a save file and add it to the tracker but this is a pretty significant regression.

Update: Someone beat me to it, looks like they already wrote it up.

Lucky me, I've just recently find out that it is very nice exploit, when you lack of refined metal or reed fiber, but you need to stress out your duplicants to make them binge eat barbeque for carnivore achievement. It worked just perfectly - dupes who where wearing a suit, and got an assignment for suit, they unequipped the suit, but still had soiled suit debuff although they were not using a suit. This exploit helped me a lot to make carnivore achievement. I had 5 dupes stress out with soiled suit debuff although only having 3 suits overall.

Is it intentional that LAUNCHPLATFORM was renamed LAUNCHPAD in all but database strings? (STRINGS.CODEX.EXOBASES.PARAGRAPH_* and STRINGS.MISC.NOTIFICATIONS.SPACETRAVEL.MESSAGEBODY)
