Planetoid Pioneers - MKSTER


Another month; another massive update! We have completely reworked and replaced the in-game GUI/HUD, which now scales and works well on any TV/display. There's a ton of improvements around that, like li'l pioneer heads next to each player row, so it's easy to tell who's who when co-op action is on. Blueprints now also show much more clearly, with their stats and data written out in the GUI, instead of crowded onto the thumbnails.

That's only the beginning of the many areas of improvement and fixes in here this time around - loading should be MUCH faster yet again (advanced tip: especially if you clean up old bloated textures etc with the special "Delete Temporary and Backup Folders and Files.bat" in the install folder), and the game runs way better on weaker computers due to texture size optimizations.

FINALLY, we think we have squashed the last remaining save data bugs... this whole system is quite complex with all the stuff going on in the huge Planetoids, so we were chasing these for way too long. Now your progress data really should be safe.

As usual, here's the complete list of the multitude of things we've improved, now sorted by category for your perusal pleasure:

Planetoid Pioneers - MKSTER


Yet another update with a HUEG list of new features, improvements, and fixes - check them out below! Especially if the game used to crash on you at start or later, a big update to the GUI middleware we're using should clear many of these issues up (they completely replaced the memory handling system).

Now, monthly, we are automatically featuring a Contributor Community-created Planetoid
right inside the game's Asteroid Belt map! You can now subscribe to, and vote up and down on these Workshop scenes, from the in-game menu. When the author of one of these subscribed-to scenes updates them, they will automatically get pushed to your game, and indicate that they're refreshed. We're kicking off the end of May here with filipex2000's brutal zombie-bashing minigame, which will cycle to something else at the beginning of each coming month!

NOTE: If you get one of these messages when launching the game now, don't be alarmed! It just means there's a log file from a previous crash that we would love to take a look at. The game should load fine after you click through this message box:


Most notable updates this time around:
  • Featured monthly Planetoids will start appearing in your asteroid belt
  • Many if not most of those previous random crashes should be gone now due to updated GUI middleware
  • Automatic error reporting which will aide us in fixing the crashes and problems some of you reported
  • Working component system to build your own vehicles (more on that later)
  • Lots of new reactor blueprints for scene makers

Full changelog:
  • Added one more featured planetoid
  • Added save slots: offline and networked
  • More-robust "special" styling of vote buttons
  • Added way to fade appropriate button when already-upvoted/downvoted

Planetoid Pioneers - MKSTER
Planetoid Pioneers had quite the launch this week!! Highlights include someone having a special birthday for over twelve hours on launch day, and another champ became a total ninja playing the game with their feet!

Wow.

We also got a boatload of direct feedback and observed issues that players were running into. Even after years of playtesting, nothing can fully prepare a game getting out in the hands of thousands of passionate players in the real world - especially a chaotic physics-driven one like Planetoid Pioneers.

Over the past three days since launch, the whole team has been listening, watching, and working feverishly to fix and improve the problems, starting with the most important ones. One of those was that sometimes, the Rocket wreckage scattered around the first Primoid adventure would not amount to a whole Rocket Blueprint when collected! Which is obviously a predicament if you're trying to get off that rock and complete its story.

In order to address this for anyone with a save stuck in that situation, we have provided an emergency drop (as in a "drag-and-drop") for you:


Fire up the game at that save, make it windowed by pressing alt+enter, and simply drag and drop the above image of the box in your browser right next to your Pioneer in the game window!

Next, we will focus on optimizing loading times, fixing some reported issues with co-op, and continue to improve the Primoid based on further feedback from you all!

Changelog since launch:
  • Made Pioneers not slide/wiggle down steep inclines on their own
  • Fixed editor crash bug when typing into text fields
  • Bosses death states are saved properly

  • Added modal fades out the stuff behind it (blocks hover effects and adds visual focus)
  • Remove "Publicly display" as something that's prohibited in our EULA - we invite people to stream the game and editors, of course
  • Disabled voting in WS shop for now, needs improvement
