  • Stats inspector allows inspecting more things in more places, and provides more, clearer info.
  • Several new songs from Alistair Lindsay.

Hotfixes

  • There was a bug in Alpha 8: If a colonist smoothed a terrain that wasn’t rough stone, the game would crash (Alpha 8B)
  • Mostly fixed some hard performance hitching that occurred when there were a lot of blueprints that lacked resources (usually when *laying large amounts of carpet without enough cloth).
  • Surgically removing bionic parts from living people will now yield the removed part for reinstallation or sale.
  • The binding between workers and bills will no longer time out. This should eliminate problems with workers starting the same bill *several times and ending up with multiple unfinished versions of the same item.
  • The ‘was imprisoned’ thought now has a greater effect on mood.
  • Fixed growers just standing there when there was a nearby growing job that was not accessible (e.g. a plant pot in a locked room).
  • Plant not growing now text uses the word ‘resting’ to clarify that the problem isn’t a lack of light. (Alpha 8C)
  • Alpha8c created a major bug where colonists would never plant in hydroponics basins. The fixed build, Alpha8d, is now uploaded. (Alpha 8 D/E)
