Hi Galactic Survivalists!

We just released a new update with Unity 2018.3 on the public branch. For this update, we switched the network protocol back to RakNet since UNET could not handle the network traffic on busy servers. We had to do some extensive internal refactoring to ensure that RakNet is working with Unity 2018.3.

Please let us know if you experience any problems.

Changelog: Alpha 9.7 (Build 2319)

Changes:
- Switched network protocol back to RakNet
- Internal refactoring to make sure RakNet is compatible with Unity 2018.3

Yes but this kind of issue unfortunately doesn't appear until a server becomes highly populated.

Update: April 23, 2019
We are really sorry, but we had to temporarily revert back to Unity 2018.1 (Alpha 9.6 - Build 2307) since UNET causes some problems that we need to address first. Your save games should be fully compatible with Alpha 9.6.

Alpha 9.7 (Build 2316) will stay on the EXPERIMENTAL branch.

Comment

The options & difficulty settings are now in the gameoptions.yaml which can be found in the scenario folder of the scenario setup to be used in the dedicated.yaml.

For example look at the gameoptions.yaml for the Default Multiplayer scenario here:
Empyrion - Dedicated Server\Content\Scenarios\Default Multiplayer

KR an GR andocken

Comment

mit einem Rechtsklick auf die Andockplatte beim bauen kannst Du wie bei Blöcken auch danach aus mehreren auswählen wenn Du wirklich alle erforscht hast.
Um Dein KR erfolgreich anzudocken müssen die Andockplatten zwingend das unterste Item sein an Deinem Schiff wenn da Wände/Platten verbaut sind zählt das als voller Block und die Andockplatten können evtl nicht sauber andocken, um anzudocken beim landen C drücken und halten bis Du das Andockgeräusch hörst.

No Update?

Backup your belonging. Opt out all Betas, wait some second quit steam and may also restart you pc :) log back in to steam if there is still no download go to egs properties in the library and verify the game installation.
The process of downgrading playing and opt out to actuall public stable works just fine as i tested it bevore.
If nothing helps try uninstall the game then again egs properties in library and opt out - restart steam and reinstall

Perhaps a solution for you can be found in one of these posts

https://steamcommunity.com/discussions/forum/1/1474222595297633271/

unfortunately this happens from time to time with steam for some users.
I haven't had it happen to myself for a long time though.

Unity Upgrade

It's the decision of the devs to upgrade or not, as far as i know it's for Eleon now the second or third attempt to successful upgrade the engine to Unity 2018. Some Devs of other games just don't need to upgrade either because their game is allready finished and polished or they may wait for better versions with less struggle,.

i'm not the pro in this, but unity is the engine in wich empyrion is developed. This engine get independent of Eleon his own upgrades bugfixes ect. Upgrading to newer Versions (should) help in many ways.

Unity 2018 3.0 Changelog

https://unity3d.com/de/unity/whats-new/unity-2018.3.0

like devs said in the last announcments :

the ideal outcome would be that you do not see any difference to the last public release version Alpha 9.5.0 (Build 2294) - except performance improvements :)
