Communication has been added. More specifically, it is player-to-player and faction-to-faction chat with history. The player should be within the antenna’s range in order to successfully broadcast/receive the messages.
Additionally, the in-game programming has been improved. It's now possible to set block properties, such as light color, rotor velocity, limits, etc. Basically anything what is slider in terminal can be set by a script directly as value (list of available properties will be published soon).
Also '.bat' file for creating new script mod has been added. This '.bat' file creates new Visual Studio project with references and example script in local mod folder (AppData\SpaceEngineers\Mods\).
