Phone Home Update Now Live!

Howdy Folks!

The Phone Home update is now live! This update brings a bunch of new content to the game including new POIs, resources, items, missions, story content and more.

Missions

A new mission system has been added into the game. This new system replaces the existing getting started tutorial with new and improved starting missions.

Up to four missions can be tracked at a time and the missions section has been added to show all of your current and completed missions.

The first chapter of the story campaign has been added as well. This is a new series of missions with new POIs, stories and some new characters.

POI Management

New mission specific POI locations have been added to the surface map as well as a new way to see what POIs you’ve uncovered. You can center the camera to a POI by clicking it’s icon in the list.

New Research, Resources and Items

A new surface side resource has been added as well as several new recipes. This, of course, means more things to unlock via research as well as some interesting new discoveries.

Improvements To Eye Dropper Tool

Shift + clicking a placed object will allow you to quickly place down more of that object for construction. While this functionality currently already exists it will now also copy the objects existing rotation. Additionally the object that was copied will no longer get selected during this process.
