Greetings Commanders!

Due to some last-minute issues discovered during the internal testing, we made the decision to postpone the release of Hotfix #2. We don’t foresee it to be a long delay and you can still expect the hotfix to come out this week.

Apologies for the prolonged wait, but we want to make sure that the next hotfix will only bring solutions to the already existing issues, and will not introduce any new ones instead.

We will share more updates on this with you as soon as possible.

Thank you so much for your understanding!

just curious if the black squares on all the B&B DLC UI for mac will be sorted with this one?

The fix for this issue is a bit more complicated that we anticipated, so it won't be included in this hotfix, but we will prioritize it so we can include it in the next one.

Greetings Commanders,

Our work to improve the current state of the game continues this Monday with the release of hotfix #2. We are still working on a few fixes and finalizing the patch notes, but we want to reassure you know that we’re continually looking into the issues you have reported to us.

We would like to highlight that in hotfix #2 we aim to address the problems with birth control in the domes, drones trying to get to places they cannot reach, and missing images for anomalies.

We expect the hotfix to contain more fixes than this, and we're currently testing solutions for multiple other issues. We're hoping to have fixes for the hazards not triggering correctly, and duplicate anomalies. We'll continue to monitor the progress of these fixes and are hopeful that they will be in Monday's hotfix, but it will depend entirely on our internal testing.

This is not the last hotfix we have planned for Surviving Mars, and we'll have more news on th... Read more

Game version: 1007874

Gameplay Improvements
  • The lander rocket now loads items in increments of 1 instead of 5.
  • Moved the cave-in clearing tech earlier in the tech tree, now appearing between position 5 and 8, instead of as the 13th tech.
  • Change the order in the cargo screens, grouping buildings of the same type together.
  • Rebalance rewards for recurring Recon Center discovery events.
Bug fixes
  • Fixed colonists and drones getting stuck in food stockpiles. Attention: the fix requires the rebuilding of depots and food production buildings that display broken behaviour!
  • Show the Lander Rocket immediately amongst the pinned items on Mars when it does its last second launch as an Asteroid goes out of range.
  • Lander Rocket now properly loads all drones when launching at the last second as an asteroid goes out of range.
  • ...

Greetings Commanders,

We would like to let you know that our team is working hard to address some issues you have flagged with the Below & Beyond expansion and free content update.

You can expect the first hotfix to come out on Monday, September 13th, simultaneously on all platforms. It’s going to address the problem with disappearing pipes and cables, and change the Asteroid Lander increment from 5 to 1, among other fixes and tweaks.

We are also trying to help out players who are struggling with continuing their game on the pre-patch save files. While the hotfix should fix some of the more persistent issues on the old save files, for the best experience we recommend starting a new save file.

Finally, we would like to thank all the players for your patience, understanding, and the time you spent on sending the feedback and reporting the bugs to us.

This is not the last time you’ll hear from us on this topic. We are fully committed to i... Read more
