Update 25.2.2021 (Alpha 364)

New Features and Major Updates
  • Ship decals and Decal Tool to Ship Designer
    • All decals are located in the "Decals" folder in Asset Browser
    • The Decal Tool can be found from the Toolbox in the Spaceship Designer, and it is also automatically selected whenever you select a decal from the Asset Browser
    • When the Decal Tool is active, you are able to select decals with M1 from your ship; use Ctrl + M1 for selecting multiple decals
    • You can use mouse wheel to scale the selected decals, and Ctrl + mouse wheel to rotate the selected decals
    • You can also press 1 or 2 to select the Move or Rotate Tool in order to move or rotate decals when the Decal Tool is active
    • Building budget
      • The amount of decals in ships is limited by how many parts they cover
      • One large decal extending over ten parts or ten smaller decals each covering one part use an equal amount of the building budget
  • Safety Lid Buttons to Ship and Interior Designer (Devices -> Controls)
    • Safety Lid Button Round 24x24 cm

  • Plasma Thrusters added to Ship Part shop and Ship Designer (Machinery -> Thrusters)

    • Karnite propellant tanks are the same size as Hydrogen, and can use the same tank support
  • New Pirate Outpost station for events
Known Issues
  • Automatic Thruster Naming doesn't work with Plasma Thrusters
  • Using more than one Plasma Thruster in a ship may cause instability while the thrusters warm up (the first 60 seconds)
  • Decals can't be copied in Ship Designer
