Alpha 11.1: Stabilization, new stock Blueprints

Posted on November 22nd, 2019 06:07 AM EST
Hi Galactic Survivalists!

Today we release Alpha 11.1 as a 'stabilization update' for Alpha 11. As the name indicates, we primarily focused on bugfixing and a few more refining changes.

For 11.1 we temporarily have reverted the new galaxy map to the previous version, as the new map needs more refinement.
Please feel free to tell us, if you want to either stay with this known map or if you would prefer to go with the new one - with some fixes and adaptions, of course. In the latter case, please give us feedback what needs to be improved to finally replace the old one - thanks a lot :)

Please continue to use the feedback and info threads pinned over here[empyriononline.com] for any ideas and suggestions on those topics.



With regards to the CPU system, we also started to add new, CPU-compliant stock Blueprints and also retired some of the old ones from that category. Please not only check out the additions in your game's Blueprint Libary (F2) but also head over to the 'Vessel and Base BLUEPRINTS'[empyriononline.com] section in our new creators forum, where you can comment on each of the new models - and even download the retired blueprints if you like to still use them.





Thanks a lot in advance for reporting any bug and issue in our bug-forum[empyriononline.com]

Before making a bug report, please read about how to use the bug section[empyriononline.com]

Also, ahead of reporting any issue, please have a quick look at the KNOWN ISSUES[empyriononline.com]

And now: have fun playing :-)

- Runtime memory check which informs when memory is too low and forces low quality textures if necessary. It will now account for memory used by the game itself

- Dedi will not add new playfields to a playfield server if this server needs more than 6GB of total memory
- Dedi now checks if emptied pf server uses too much memory, if yes process is killed instead being managed as idle server again
