Ostranauts Patch Is Available

Hey Folks!

Ostranauts v0.6.4.3 is now available on Steam, and your clients should be updating shortly.

This one's a short list, but had some worthwhile fixes we wanted to get to you asap.


  • Fixed a bug that caused pathfinding to get stuck around certain items like unpowered lights.
  • Fixed a bug that caused saving game to fail if placeholder item was missing data. Save will now omit said item.
  • Fixed a bug that caused saving game to fail if a container had bad stacking info on contained items.
  • Added code to remember item placement in inventory grids.

The main reason for the quick patch today was a pathfinding bug that caused crew to get stuck on things like unpowered lights. In some situations, this would almost completely stop a crew member from walking through airlocks due to light hitboxes creating a narrow passage.

Crew should get around more smoothly now.

We also saw a few crashes occur when players attempted to save games with some bad data present. We've added some code so these games can be saved again, while we work on a more permanent fix.

Finally, inventory items should now stay in the same grid square when you close and reopen the inventory UI. So go ahead and organize items to your heart's content. They should still be where you left them next time!

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!
