Post news RSS Space Engineers - Update 01.178 DEV - Multiplayer Improvements & LOD Optimizations

Hello, Engineers! Today’s update contains numerous multiplayer improvements and LOD optimizations.

Posted by on

Firstly, there should no longer be cases of missing planets, asteroids and grids when connected to multiplayer servers. We also added a loading wheel to indicate when anything from the server is being streamed to the client. This will definitely help players by letting them know that the surrounding environment is still loading when selecting a medbay in the respawn screen.
There were LOD optimizations made to block models which should result in various performance gains with many worlds and builds although the changes will be most noticeable on lower end systems.
Newly placed blocks will now inherit the velocity of the character when moving faster than 15m/s. Below this speed, any block placed will have zero velocity. It’s a subtle change but should be useful when trying to build on a fast moving ship. Before this, a newly placed block would’ve just been left behind potentially colliding with the existing grid that you’re standing on.
Lastly, we have created a much more detailed guide for the cutscene editor which you can find on the forums. This is part of our ongoing efforts to produce more guides for the modding and scripting of Space Engineers.
