TODAY'S BUILD

Indev Placeable Prefabs!

Blockade Runner's beginning to align closer to our vision! Prefabs are now placeable in any 6DOF direction!

In 0.55.0 you're able to try out a radar dish, captain's chair, cargo-bay door, and gun turret test models. This is an indev build, and there's still quite a few bugs to rub off the list, however we're very happy to finally see the prefabs to take shape!

Directional Lighting

In preparation for shadows, Zack's added the ability to enable directional lighting! Activate it by clicking on the "lights" tool, and try it out in the launch menu!

Hot Pink and Teal Plating

It was requested of Micah to add in hot pink and teal plating. And he saw that it was good.

I was wondering when you are planning on making the executable not have admin settings on by default. In 54 and previous I didn't need it since I set the folder permissions. (Slightly annoyed that it is forced on in w55).

We have a choice of either admin by default, or standard Vista/Win7 users will have to right-click and gain administrative privileges.

We're getting annoyed by the "always" requirement ourselves and are considering removing it for now.

Couldn't you check the folder permissions to see if write access is allowed? (Or test write a file and see if it works, if so continue)

Just thought of another alternative to elevating permissions. Just save and access the world/save/ship/mod/temp data from the %appdata% section. Then you wouldn't have to worry about admin access at all.

We're considering this, but it might make it more difficult for modding in the future. Ultimately it may be the best solution.

Thanks for the feedback!
