Nice work!

"Fixed that Blueprint books in the library didn't propagate its modded icon backups properly into the game."
This one especially raised a few eyebrows for me when it happened, glad it's already fixed <3

Oh damn at those new tech icons, they are awesome :O

Thanks for cranking out the updates!

Any plans to tweak the new blueprint functionality? Some good discussion and suggestions (including low-impact / low-risk suggestions which could feasibly be implemented before 1.0) in this thread:

The tech icons are great! Great job!

Is there any chance to get updated icons for the crafting/signal categories? Especially "Logistics" looks out of place now. And "fluids" always looked too much like science packs, not like fluids droplets.

Did they fix the bug where if you use a deconstruction planner that is inside your blueprint library but linked to your hotbar... crashes the game?

Evidently this also broke Klonan's Construction Drones mod. Now they drive up to their target, and sit there doing nothing. I'd guess their "actual" interaction range is less than their "approach to" range. They will still work if you're standing right next to a ghost, so they're already within their actual range when they come out. Picking them back up is a bit wonky too, you basically have to walk into them for them to go back in your inventory.

See Mod Portal Discussion and other related threads from today.

It’s too bad I don’t have my computer. I can’t wait to see the new icons

The credits are stylistically a little bit underwhelming. Functional enough maybe for the rather seldomly visited credit tab in the main menu.

But have you guys ever considered adding in a credit roll, starting after finishing the game?
I’m referring for example to the Minecraft credits (and of course many more).

The team’s name could e.g. appear behind a rocket animation ascending to space.
