Sky Nations Update - Wedges, Moon and Weight Adjustments

By Austin Phoenix, 1 month ago
Hey guys, a new small update is up.

A new moon has been added to replace the omninous floating sphere placeholder. New Wedges and Horizontal Wedges(H-Wedges) are available for most of the blocks that didn't have them before(see change log for a list). Quite a lot of weights have been changed for weaponised blocks and power related blocks, such as cannons and other types of guns. They are now much heavier across the board. Smaller ships in some cases will require more power and thrusters to compensate for being armed and larger gun heavy ships will obviously require more thrust or risk being slower to compensate for being decked out.

An issue with the Merchant King boss that made the asset files become corrupted/incorrect in some cases, which made his texture and offset wrong, has been fixed. A similar issue was also happening with loot crates and has also been fixed.

For the full change log see below.


How do I update?
The client will update automatically, the server files will be available shortly here.
