Ostranauts Patch Is Available

Hey Folks!

Ostranauts v0.6.3.3 is now available on Steam, and your clients should be updating shortly.

This patch enables precision item dropping placement, more save backups, a fix for the temperature spike and pod getting stuck after undocks, plus more!


  • Changed inventory ground grid to represent actual item positions, and allow precise item placement.
  • Changed save slots to keep up to 9 previous save files.
  • Fixed a bug that caused runaway high temperature/pressure due to a precision underflow.
  • Fixed pathfinding bug that would try to walk into holes in floor near destination.
  • Fixed a bug that caused containers to disappear if placed inside themselves.
  • Changed nav station to alternate between displaying vessel registration ID and vessel name.
  • Added code to reject undocking clearance if fees unpaid.
  • Fixed a bug that caused refueling kiosk not to deduct cash from player.
  • Fixed a bug that caused refueling kiosk to ignore N2 fees.
  • Fixed a bug that caused other ships to reset control panels, loot, and canister contents if game saved while undocked.
  • Changed inventory UI to work with any selected crew member.
  • Fixed a bug that caused smaller ships to get stuck to bigger ones if player docked while on small, but undocked while on big.
  • Changed price of He3 fuel to be more affordable.

You can now choose where items drop on the ground via inventory UI. Save files are now backed-up up to ten versions. And I'm hoping this is the last of the temperature/pressure spike fixes.

Station refueling now actually charges you money, and you cannot undock without paying :)

Several significant bugs were fixed, too, which could cause anything from missing items on derelicts, to pods getting stuck to you after undocking. Plus several other tweaks and fixes.

As always, there's plenty more for us to fix, change, and add! And we'll be continuing in roughly that order. In the meantime, let us know if this patch helps you out, as well as if it reveals new problems!
