Well I suppose this gives me a good reason to avoid the game for a bit. Fatigue was starting to set in anyways, so spending some time waiting for mod updates and bug fixes should help me to come back rejuvenated and ready to colonize.
I see only good things in this update. Perhaps a few things here and there could be tweaked, such as the new resource menu's size, and the modding system, but I believe Klei is heading in the right direction. Just keep calm and wait patiently while they sort out whatever messes I'm sure they have more firsthand experience with than we can imagine. I'm incredibly thankful that this game has such a committed team behind it, and ones that are so willing to receive feedback from the playerbase.
