In this update, we've focused on performance, specifically for players with large automated bases experiencing lower frame rates. Key improvements include optimizing physics and chutes, reducing physics update tick time by 50% through better caching for dynamic objects in slots, and improving server tick for bases with many chutes and chute devices.

Additional enhancements encompass streamlining the decay tick, Trading Motherboard Computer screen interface, Satellite Dish scanning logic, and the Computer screen render optimization. These performance updates aim to provide a smoother, more responsive gaming experience, particularly for players with complex bases.

Hem Droid Quality of Life Improvements

We've added some quality of life improvements for those who own the Hem Droid DLC. Although these have been designed for the Hem Droid the Disposable Battery Charger can be used by other species as well, to recharge their suit battery.

Hem Droid Sleeper
While regular sleepers have catered to the other species, Hem Droids have been missing a dedicated option. The Hem Droid Sleeper is specially designed for Hem Droids. As long as it has the required power it will keep Hem Droids batteries charged.

Disposable Battery Charger
For emergency situations we've introduced the Disposable Battery Charger that can partially recharge your battery immediately. When used it is consumed but will recharge the battery of your suit, or if you’re a hem droid, the battery in your suit.

HEM-Droid Repair Kit
The HEM-Droid Repair Kit has been added to the game for players using Hem Droid characters and functions as the heal pill does for the other species.

Self Contained Stairwell
We've included a 3x1 stairwell to offer a more compact option for moving up and down your base. This new stairwell design aims to optimize space and improve navigation within your Stationeers base.

Localization and Voice Packs
We're actively working on improving our localization from multiple angles: Ensuring more of the game is localizeable, having the game localized for some languages, as well as improving the pipeline, both for us as well as for community translations.

We are paying for languages to receive a full new pass of translation, and then will accept community suggestions for better localization. This should help provide cleanup on the current messy state where some English strings were changed, but not retranslated.

Chinese Voice Pack added
The voice pack we're adding this week is Chinese! You can also select the voice pack independent of the localized text. This means you can have your suit voice pack warnings in German, Russian, or Chinese, while still having the text in English. More voice pack languages will be added in the future as well.

Your support makes this possible Over the last year, we’ve completely refactored the net code making multiplayer more stable, we’re continuing to improve the connectivity, and we’ve improved some big systems to allow us to bring you better content and new game loops. All this while transitioning to a weekly update cycle.

All the community support, feedback, and involvement have made this possible. So thank you!

If you like the progress we have made, please consider taking a moment to leave a positive review. This makes a huge difference to the project. We've been working hard for the last five years, and feel confident the game has substantially improved over this time. Many projects steer clear of the hard tasks, and we are proud to have taken them on.

Additionally, you can support us by purchasing DLC that we've made to allow those who enjoy the game to support us, and in return get something a little fun to use in-game.
