Great to know a patch is coming.

Any plans for a beta patch and/or the ability to roll back to a previous version (on Steam) before the weekend, by any chance?

Look forward to getting more updates about this hotfix in the near future, anyhow! :)

Also, don't forget the weirdness with drones and food pickups, they just hang out around the farm, spasm all over, glitching and do nothing while population starves.

Yeah, this is IMO the most game-breaking bug ATM. It effectively kills your colonists, shuttles and drones all simultaneously with frightening regularity.

Great to hear a fix is coming. An increment decrease to +1 is honestly more than I had hoped for on such short notice.

In principle I still really like the new content, but managing multiple bases and fighting multiple bugs simultaneously can get a bit exhausting :D

Hopefully with a few tweaks and fixes this expansion can fully realize its IMO big potential :)

Hi, I'm new, I don't understand the increment change from 5 to 1.

Hi, I'm new, I don't understand the increment change from 5 to 1.
It means the requested resources for landers will now go up in increments of one instead of five, which currently makes to impossible to launch them with resources not in multiples of five.

Devs, may I suggest we also get an option to make the increments go by five and like 20 by clicking while holding Ctrl or Alt or something? Also for the Space Elevator in case it doesn't currently? (I haven't used it in a while)

There is also a problem with old seniors martians, they refuse to obey dome Filters, they also rather take long walks instead use shuttles even if it means certain death and be stubborn enough to refuse use of dome passage ways, they are unstoppable in their determination to comit suicide.

I can confirm that the issue with colonists and drones getting stuck around farms (to be more precise, they get stuck in food stockpiles) will get fixed on Monday.

Hey @OxfordNik

I'm afraid we don't plan to enable rollback to previous versions of the game on Steam. We would like to fully focus our efforts on improving the quality and technical state of the DLC and free update on all platforms moving forward. Creating and managing an extra 'backup' Steam branch makes the process more difficult.

When is the filter to stop colonists from being born going to be fixed? Is this also included on Monday?

Will you be coming out with a list of known issues and dates for resolution?

I feel that this will help everyone to understand the status of the glitches and provide insight into if a glitch was found that you aren't yet aware of.

The issue with the filter is being looked into, but unfortunately, I don't have confirmation that it will be included in the patch on Monday just yet. We're still finalizing the patch notes.

This list will get updated with the first hotfix, so hopefully, it will help players understand what issues we're already working on. I'm afraid we won't be able to go as far as adding exact dates when certain issues will get fixed, but we will try to communicate when you can expect more patches and what we're focusing on improving as much as possible.

Thanks for clarifying, even if it's not the news many of us would've been hoping for. Don't think the game is currently in a state where I would enjoy playing it, so I sincerely hope that the issues get resolved in the hotfix (and/or another patch) to enable the game to be enjoyed by everyone.

Surprised that it would be that difficult to create a rollback version on Steam (surely there must have been a backup version stored somewhere that the update wouldn't have affected?!), but I guess if getting that done means not getting some bugs resolved, then I can understand the logic - provided the bugs do, in fact, get fixed! :)

Thanks for continuing to engage with the community and updating us, anyhow! :)

This has been an issue in my game too. Really annoying when you want to create a “retirement” dome and they just ignore the instructions.

Hopefully this can be batched quickly.
