Latest Patch NotesAlpha EXPERIMENTAL 10 - Part III (4 months ago)

17 Sep

Hi Galactic Survivalists!

We are thrilled to release Alpha 10.5 to the public today! This update does not only contain a LOT of bug fixes but we also dedicated a lot of our time to some major (multiplayer) optimizations! The first pass of these changes should allow for a more fluid gameplay experience, especially in combat. We have implemented a few new methods on how data and events are handled and would like to have your feedback on how things have improved. Please use the feedback thread pinned in the feedback forum!

Besides bug fixes and optimizations, Alpha 10.5 has a lot to offer: The orbital planet view is now a real 3D Mesh, showing also terrain heights and other specialities. The Talon will no longer ignore you and also have their own Base Attack. If you ever wanted to toy around with floating text messages and signs, you now can do that with the new LCD Projector device. In the same context, we improved t... Read more

we just released Alpha 10.3, please check the changelog below.

Thanks again for your ongoing feedback and bug reports :)

Empyrion Dev Team


CHANGELOG: Alpha 10.3.0 (Build 2539)

PLEASE NOTE: Players who have spawned a recently saved Blueprint that have problems with signals or the device list should execute some console cmds to remove faulty data. For this, step onto that structure, open the console window and enter 'help structure'.
Then execute all three sub-commands to clean up the structure. You may then re-setup your signals, lock codes and custom devicve grouping / naming and save it as a working Blueprint. Sorry for any inconvenience!

- Added console cmd 'structure' to manage structure internals

- When some blueprints are spawned they lose their device list & signals setup
- Troop transports fre... Read more

PINNED: Trouble starting the game ? please look here

I followed every single step. Game launches fine (altho it seems like its crashing), but when I select new game and go into the loadingscreen, after loading the planets to 100% the screen goes black. 10 seconds later it crashes to the desktop, closing down steam completely and 50% of the time forcing me to restart my computer as well, because everything is messed up.

Please send your logs with a description of your issue after it happens ... Read more

Some questions we would ask you first concerning the game not starting on your system:
When you start the game...
  • is there a game window with the "Loading..." text visible at least for a few seconds?
  • is after a few seconds the version number (e.g. "Alpha 10.0.2") displayed in the top left corner?
  • did you try to directly start "Empyrion.exe" or "EmpyrionLauncher.exe" from the folder where Steam installed it?
  • you can find the location in Steam: right-click on "Empyrion - Galactic Survival" and select "Properties", then select "Local files" tab and click "Browse Local Files..."
  • in the opened Explorer window go to the "Client" folder and start the exe or try with the "EmpyrionLauncher.exe" in the Empyrion root folder

    To better understand what exactly happens it would be good to observe the following:
  • open Windows Task Manager (CTRL-SHIFT-ESC) (or better the "Proce...

Hi Galactic Survivalists,

Welcome to Part IV of Alpha 10 Experimental!

While we are constantly making progress towards the first release candidate in our weekly EXP updates, today’s patch will again add a few more toys and feature updates. Enjoy the new Texture-Color Tool that combines coloring & texturing in one tool and an entirely new movement controller mode for vessels. Please note: both are test candidates. So please have a closer look. As always, it will depend on your feedback, if those features make it into the Release Candidate and the public version!

For our creative minds and all builders: we increased the available shapes for the heavy windows by adding a few more of the requested connectors and variants. For those that might wonder if the “standard” and “armored” window groups will be worked on in this way as well, the short answer is: yes!

The Base Attack mode also got a few upgrade... Read more

The updated Alien Planet

Update: May 29, 2019 (Build 2483)
- Fixed: Chat message exception


Hi Galactic Survivalists!

Welcome to the third installment of Alpha 10 Experimental, where we added even more new stuff for your enjoyment! This time we introduced a highly requested balancing parameter for shields (recharge delay when the shield is hit) and a hotkey to activate / deactivate the shield. In addition, we added a first batch of new window shapes (Heavy Windows for testing), as well as more variants for doors and shutters.

Moreover, the new blockshapes menu can now be configured with less hassle: We renamed all the internal ‘key names’ that are used in the config file. Now, you simply need to skip the blank of the localized name. If you want to add ‘Ramp C Low’ to a slot, simply use ‘RampCLow’ - and so on. You do not need to dig through the Loca file or other configs ... Read more
