Patch 0.17.1

Date: April 21st, 2018

Hey everyone, after releasing the new feature that automatically reports crashes to us, we've found tons of issues and fixed as many as possible as fast as we could.
Here you see the results of this bug hunt.

We'll be releasing more patches over the next few days, which will mostly be bugfixes. We probably won't post an entire news article every time we update the game to fix crashes.
Instead, we're probably going to make a sticky in the forum, where we add all the bugs we fixed so far. Edit: Here's the sticky: https://steamcommunity.com/app/445220/discussions/0/3211505894140606500/


Beta Branch Note: These changes are currently available on the beta branch. The beta branch is for testing experimental changes and for finding and fixing errors.

This is how you get access to the beta branch (USE AT YOUR OWN RISK):
Right-Click on Avorion in your Steam list, Properties -> Betas -> Select branch 'beta'.

I confirm the CocoCrash was due to an outdated MoveUI mod, now the ScrapyardLicenses part is erroring all over the place but it's no problem as I don't use scrapyards and it doesn't crash the game :).

The game sure got less laggy. It looks up to be a great game ;D !

UI bug: while in Free Mouse (Shift) mode, I cannot accelerate.

P.S.: Wow, for a bug-fixing/quality-of-life update, an innumerable amount of bugs crept up. Poor devs :-[ !

Nevermind. Got the "CocoCrash's Revenge" bug on it.
Server crashing like there's no tomorrow, throwing bad_allocs, and I cannot do anything :'(. Sent a bug report.

These bad allocs are really annoying... once I had this too on a Server. It seemed to be related to entities in any way, so i set a fighter limit wich helped a lot. Log does not say anything helpful?

Well, I sent all I could identify as suspicious in the bug report along with the logs, but I do not remember, I have an extreme unhappy memory riddance speed ::).
However, it could be because at least sixty entities are loaded at the same time (my stations). It's also an old galaxy from 0.15 or even earlier, which maybe have been hurt by MoveUI installation and uninstallation (and maybe the turret factory mods, and my modified scripts), maybe I should make a new galaxy !

...this time by giving me 150 million credits and a million units of iron to start anew in the Iron Wastes with a few stations, avoiding most of the grind. Modwise I'll only keep the turret factory mod (cannot keep me nor my stations away from the delicious exotic 11.65 range 51.3 dps autotargeting iron bolters :D). I'll wait by playing Oblivion till the Combat Update II rolls, though :).

Still ugh though :-\. Losing progress frequently is a pain, but a necessity when the game engine is changing.

I am sorry if i am annoying with this, but would it be possible to have an option that brings the resource list in the upper left corner back?
