This is a hotfix release.

Update Information:

Hello everyone,

Here's the last big patch before Thursday's update. Thanks for all the feedback on the new clusters these last two weeks! We still have more changes we'd like to make in later releases (including custom game settings for the Teleporters) so continue letting us know how your colonies are progressing! As always, let us know if you see anything wrong, and have a great day!

World Gen Changes

  • Moved the location of the starting biomes down slightly in the Terra, Forest, & Swamp Spaced Out! Style clusters, they were slightly too high after adding extra room to the top of each world.
  • Moved the Niobium Volcano back below the surface on the Niobium Asteroid.
  • Moved starting island on Water Moonlet down lower.
  • Increased cave size on Spaced Out! Style Terra Cluster in the starting biome.
  • Made Moo Asteroid wider and shorter
  • Added a guaranteed Chlorine Gas Vent to the Moo Asteroid.
  • Removed hard surface border from Moo Asteroid.
  • Prevent POIs from overlapping extreme temperature borders.
  • Adjusted geysers on Marshy Asteroid.
  • Minor adjustments to minimum biome distribution on the closest asteroid in Spaced Out! style clusters.
  • Improved Abyssalite border drawing in extreme temperature cases to prevent magma from spilling over into adjacent biomes.
  • Removed surface Abyssalite border from Classic-style Sandstone cluster.

Other Changes

  • Rocket Platform is now a "Foundation" building, it can be built floating in the air and Duplicants can stand on top of it.Art adjusted accordingly.

  • Interplanetary Payloads immediately travel to orbit just like rockets.
  • All filterable storage buildings now show a tint/status item if no filter has been selected. Notably: rocket ports, cargo modules, and oxidizer tanks.
  • "Flight Path Obstructed" notification will go directly to the affected rocket when clicked.
  • New art for Niobium Volcano.
  • Updated Cluster Category Selection Screen's Spaced Out! style menu art.
  • Updated UI art to match the temp art for Rocket Port Loaders.
