We have applied multiple changes regarding game-play balance. Main changes were in block and component costs, energy consumption and reactor outputs. Most of the basic blocks that you need early in the game now require only Fe, Si and Ni. More advanced blocks such as large ship blocks and weapons can additionally require Ag, Co, Mg. Moreover, the most expensive blocks will cost some U, Au and Pt.
Additionally, a new tutorial has been added that offers instruction on how to fly a ship and use the three ship tools. You must use each ship to navigate through several chambers that demonstrate how to grind, weld and drill as well as how to stock a weld ship’s cargo and how to dock with connectors.
