Greetings, Astroworkers!

As promised, we have an update for you! It addresses a number of issues you've helped us pinpoint while improving the game's UI and overall performance.

Here's the breakdown:

What’s New

UI Improvements:
  • Added ability to change controls and key bindings from the pause menu’s options screen.
  • Added ability to change display mode and resolution from the pause menu’s options screen.
  • Added ability to navigate the options screen with both keyboard and gamepad regardless of which control scheme is currently selected for gameplay.
  • Added keyboard support for the construction and research menus.
  • Changed default pause key to Esc, which functions with both the keyboard and gamepad control schemes.
  • Changed default confirm key to Enter.
  • Added ability to rotate construction parts with the arrow keys or your key bindings for left and right movement (e.g., A and D by default). We hope this improves usability for left-handed players using keyboard and mouse.
  • Added ability to rebind the “stamp object” key used during construction.

Performance and Optimization:
  • The game will now default to the dedicated GPU on NVIDIA Optimus and AMD Dual Graphics laptops.
  • Multiplayer games will no longer drop to 30 fps.
  • Removed the option to run the game at 30 fps.
  • Added the following graphics quality presets to the options menu:
    High: Enables all post-processing effects.
    Medium: Disables anti-aliasing.
    Low: Disables anti-aliasing, fake 3D, dust, fog.

Fixes:
  • Fixed issues with language and resolution settings not saving properly.
  • Fixed an issue that caused players to get stuck in the tutorial when using keyboard and mouse.
  • Fixed an issue that caused players to get stuck in story scenes if a controller wasn’t connected.
  • Fixed an issue that caused players to get stuck in the key bindings menu.
  • Fixed an issue with the construction menu’s cursor behavior in online multiplayer.
  • Fixed an issue with the laser tower targeting nearby items and friendly robots as enemies.
  • Fixed an issue with “magnet” indicators incorrectly appearing in places where construction parts would not actually stick.
  • Fixed an issue with DirectInput controllers crashing the game.
  • Fixed miscellaneous crashes related to the stun tower and tourist bus, amongst others.
  • Fixed minor localization issues.
  • Fixed other miscellaneous bugs.

There's still much to be done and we'll be tackling it as resources allow, so stay tuned!
