Dear PE Players,

As you know by now, if you're still playing PE, our lobby server had an issue where all the code base got deleted from its server. After trying to fix it for the last month, we've arrived at the unfortunate conclusion that it's a lost cause unless we completely rewrite the code from scratch. We used a software called U-link for PE, and that software is now defunct. Even if we had the original U-link code, we still don't have the configurations and additional code we wrote back in 2013. Under the circumstances, we just don't have the resources to rewrite the multiplayer code for PE. We're truly sorry for this.

Without the multiplayer, Planet Explorers will not be the complete package that we originally envisioned. Thus, starting next week, we'll make the game free. We'll also try to make the game code available online (we're still looking into the how part).

Going forward, we will be making a PE2. It will be much better than the original, as we've matured as a studio. We'll probably start on that project next year. We'll put that game's alpha on a branch of Planet Explorers for free for you to play when the time comes.

Thank you all for supporting us all this time.

Hi everyone,

We've been working hard on getting the network code for multiplayer back online. Due to the server outage, some of the server code base was lost. As we went looking through it, it turns out there was more loss than we anticipated. So it's taking a bit more time to fix it than we expected. But we do have someone working on it and will hopefully have multiplayer back soon. Please stay tuned for further information. Thank you.

Ok, this is a very tiny patch since build 1.1.1, so we'll not change the version number.

In this patch, we fixed the bug that sometimes players cannot export ISOs or update ISOs to workshop in multiplayer.

Have fun in game!

So we've had a couple of staff changes causing a delay of this release, mainly trying to find a mulitplayer programmer. Now that we've finally found one, we're starting our updates again, sorry for the rather long delay.

PE is content complete, but there's a lot of room for better user experience and less bugs, so we'll still be working on that. The next item on the list is to see if we can cut down on the stuttering.


Fixed monorail consistency issues in multiplayer
Fixed NPC store issue when buying from a second page and resetting to first page
Fixed Chen Zhen’s music playing too loud when approaching him a second time
Fixed sound settings not being applied correctly in the menu
Fixed not being able to shoot an arrow after crafting an arrow on the go

Fixed issue with item disappearing when moved to inventory from fast bar, only reappearing after refresh
Fixed bug with ISO numbers exporting wrong, causing the player not being able to get into the vehicle
Fixed issue with the currency resetting to the old meat currency after an event in the story mode
Fixed NPC cash not being saved in multiplayer
Fixed stuttering when firing a weapon for the first time
Tweaked time for getting on a monorail
Tweaked mission UI display to more easily display main missions and sidequests
Changed the display of friendly players to arrows on maps in multiplayer instead of a dot
Added ability to teleport to a friendly player by clicking on the player on the map in multiplayer
Added sleeping bag for coop story
Added a "track" option in the replicator to see what you're still missing for replicating an item
