Holding shift in the shipyard will allow repeat placement of a part.
The AI ships were feeling a bit sluggish before, they will now go about their business.
Asteroids can now be destroyed.
Fixed planetary proximity warning distance.
Some ship spawns will now be hostile. Reminder: Hit tab to quickly target hostile contacts, or use micro-warp (shift-T) to flee.
Ships now have engine effects, these are still a work in progress
Micro warp drive improvements: Upon toggling the warp drive (default shift-T), the warp drive will charge for a few seconds before initiating. It will then remain on until you toggle it again. After shutting down, the warp drive must charge for 20 seconds before it is used again. The new warp drive has accompanying sound effects for charge up, travel, and exiting warp.
Adjusted transparency for space fog and space dust so it's easier to notice movement.
Adjusted planet spawn axis for more variety - Will only affect newly generated galaxies
Fixed stock ships not having any subsystems equipped
You should be able to use previous build ship designs, if they cause any problems please delete them and create new ones.
Edit: Slight delay Steam Partner site is down for Mantenace will push build as soon as its up.
Edit 2: The site is still down, I am checking it every half an hour - 2:00PM CST
Edit 3: Just pushed the patch live - 4:32PM CST
Adjusted speed readout to properly relay speed to scale
Major shipyard update: By popular demand, the old node based part placing has been re-enabled as a toggle. The shipyard will start in node based placement, press tab or use the button below the part list to switch between freeform and node placement.
Added an Exit to Desktop button to the splash screen
Changed the part rotation increment to 15 degrees instead of 45
Adjusted camera depth in splash scene to hopefully negate the UI only issue some users are getting.
This change has broken all previously built ships, sorry about that. When we make changes to the shipyard this is bound to happen. I will post a small update tomorrow replacing the stock ships with some new designs.
I am glad that so many of you are liking Kinetic Void in its early state.
In the near future we will be taking user created ship designs and including them in the base game. Feel free to share any images in the community hub by taking screenshots with F11 and uploading them with public view.
I have a list of features / bugs we are working on right now.
Weapon Group windows
General flighte operations
and more to come. All patch notes when released will be posted here as well.
