Hotfix 1

29th October, 2018

  • Fixed a crash related to the terrain. Update 18.5 introduced several memory optimizations and this one went a little too far.
  • Fixed the M button so the Mission Map shows the correct available missions after returning to the Spacerig.
    Note: We are aware that this bug was used by some players to repeat a certain mission, but we have no metrics on how much is was used. This was never the intention and have therefore been fixed.
