Note: This patch does not contain all of the intended features, which will be added iteratively to the notes as they become available. Additionally, some features may be implemented in a partial state and as such are not ready for testing. When those features reach a playable state they will be detailed on the notes and added to the “Testing Focus”. Please issue council all issues related to those in testing focus and in general gameplay.

Look ahead and target tracking changes

  • We have made a few changes to how this is handled. We separated target tracking out to a “weak” version and a “strong” version. The weak version is now part of the normal look ahead process and does not produce a very strong movement to slightly help keep the target in view but also keep the HUD and other elements from being lost. The strong version is called “Padlock” now and will follow the target as much as possible. Removed binding to enable look ahead target tracking.
  • Removed option to automatically enable look ahead target tracking.
  • Added binding to enable padlock.
  • Added option to automatically enable padlock (off by default).
  • Rebalance pass on mineables, mining lasers, and mining consumables
  • Balance changes to aspects of mining that increase the potential for finding valuable materials as well as make mining more profitable at lower ends while providing more high end multiplayer opportunities.
  • Updated loading screen image
