I’m very excited to release alpha 0.08 which has some great new features and decorations. Alpha 0.08 available now on Itch.IO.
The deconstruction options have been expanded and rolled in to a single control. Instead of two buttons for deconstructing Structures and Floors there is a single deconstruct button that now shows a deconstruction filter for what you want to select. This allows for easy removal of power and water conduits in addition to structures and floors.
A heavily requested feature has been the ability to organize the storage containers by setting what can and can’t be put in a container. Containers now have an allowed items button which controls what items are allowed in that container. This can be changed at any time and if items are in the container that don’t belong then the Hauler will remove the item(s) from the container. If there is not another suitable container for the items being removed then the Hauler will gladly dump the items on the ground.
In addition to some core feature updates there are a couple of new decoration items and a new plant for the plant pot. This is the first step towards more decor items for the facility as there are definitely more coming.
