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.

Testing Focus

Today’s PTU build beings the focus of feature testing in the PU. With this build we will only have the PU enabled (no AC) and the Hull-C and cargo rework is not fully available for feedback although most of the cargo updates will function on other ships.

  • Seraphim Station
  • Mining Stability Changes
  • UGF RASTAR Drop (Bug checking)

Not Ready For Feedback

As always, there are partial implementations for certain new features that we are not collecting bugs and feedback on just yet as any issues are most likely due to partial implementation.

New Features


  • Seraphim Station
    • Bringing the Crusader Port station in line with the other stations and replacing the long standing Port Olisar, Seraphim Station brings many of the amenities needed to accommodate the various features required of a station such as hangars, cargo decks, shopping, clinics, and habs.

Feature Updates


  • Underground Facilities – Rastar Update
    • Rastar is a tool which is used to quickly build POI’s on planet surfaces by combining pre-built modules together at the click of a button. They also change the way which mission locations are setup and streamed in, essentially, they are the future of creating planetary locations. This update moves all our original UGF’s over to the new Rastar tool workflow. All UGF’s have been replaced in the same positions as they were previously, with the settings they previously had applied to them reapplied where appropriate. This means functionally the current locations should be no different than they were before on the mission side of things and also art wise should be the same barring some minor adjustments to the exterior layout of each location.


  • Mining Stability Changes
    • This update brings some mining instability updates that should make for a more balanced experience. Instability will now scale with rock size and will no longer affect laser power, but will instead impact transfer rate. Laser power will now have an impact on instability, with higher laser power causing higher instability. Note for this build: To better understand the effects of the stability changes, instability values have been increased by a factor of 100 to really test your ability to cope and counter the mechanic. Rock type now correlates to the presence of specific element meaning there are two drivers to looking for specific resource: the location within the galaxy for base resources and the rock type (ex. C-type) for the available common elements
