Update 0.2.42



Hello everyone!

Beta phase upcoming
Before the patch note I would like to announce the upcoming exit of the Early Access phase!
The beta phase is coming soon. Let me know what you think and what was missing from the game right now.
Which menu, interface or window needs a redesign?
What are the weaknesses and strength of the game in your opinion? I would do my best to improve everything.
Don't worry, the end of the early access phase does not mean that the updates will stop.
It simply means that the core gameplay is now fix. New functionalities and bugfix will continue to come.

Memory Rework
You can now split and merge memory kits!
Buying a 2x16GB and merge it with another 2x16GB to obtain a 4x16GB is now possible!


Dual Channel
You can also buy a 4x16GB and split it in 4 kit of 16GB.
But be careful dual channel is taken into account!
Dual Channel is a technology that allow RAM module to perform in pair.
That's means a RAM module alone will perform slower than expected.


Memory Synchronization
Like in reality, when mixing different memory module they all will run at the speed of the slower module.


Interface
Merge two RAM kit is possible in inventory by drag and drop one kit on another one of the same generation.
DDR3 and DDR4 can't be in the same kits.
You can also merge two sets of RAM directly in the assembly.

To Split a Ram kits use the new icon in inventory

Mission
Customer's algorithm will take into account the possibility of doubling memory if they have only two RAM modules on a computer or to make a new kits by buying two set of 2 RAM modules.

As always many bugs was fixed. If you found a bug, you can report it on discord or on the Bug Report section of the Steam HUB thanks!
