With our first follow up patch to Update 9.4, we have added an option to enable the legacy cart control scheme, improved mod compatibility for popular mods from 9.3, and implemented multiple bug fixes to address some of the key issues that have been impacting gameplay.

Legacy Cart Control Option With Update 9.4, we introduced a new control scheme for carts that enabled the camera to rotate while in third person. As part of this, the control scheme for carts was changed so turning was moved to the keyboard. We have been listening closely to feedback, and found some prefer the old control scheme that allowed turning with the mouse. With this update, everyone will have the option to pick which control style they prefer. This setting can be found in the controls menu, and enabling this toggle will make carts use the old style of control.

We are happy to announce the release of Eco Update 9.4! With this update comes a load of new content, gameplay mechanics, and performance improvements.

One major focus of this update was to provide more ways to express yourself via the avatar, including new animated emotes and avatar customization choices, We expanded the game with thirty new food items representing well known dishes from around the world. In addition, producing green energy is more realistic, requiring placement with proper access to the elements.

We have also been hard at work at optimization, both for the Eco client and for server calculations. You should notice significantly smoother gameplay, though optimization will continue to be a primary focus for us in future updates. Last but not least, we had a heavy focus on bug fixes and other general improvements with a full list of changes included below.
