Updates to R&D Labs

Important note:
All existing R&D Test Chamber game saves are very likely to load into the new R&D Labs with peculiar consequences; mainly Techs falling from great height or just hanging in the air if they're anchored. So any Techs that you want to keep for the new R&D Labs, please snapshot in the current version 1.3.5 before updating to this version.
  • Updates are currently in progress so do let us know what you think as we refine what we have and add more features to R&D Labs.
  • Some of the new features are:
    • Biome Areas - to test how well your Tech drives on the different terrains.

    • Speed Trap - to test how fast your Tech is travelling as it crosses the laser line.

    • Weighing Scales - to measure the mass of a Tech or multiple Techs or individual blocks.

    • Damage Calculator - see how much damage each weapon causes

Design Tweaks:
  • The GSO Anchored SCU Storage Device has been moved from GSO Grade 3 to GSO Grade 2.
    • It will now appear as a rare mission reward for completing missions from GSO Grade 2 onwards.

Art Tweaks:
  • Graphics options Draw Distance slider has now been extended to almost 3 times the previous distance.

  • There are also separate graphics options sliders for Detail Distance and Shadow Distance.
  • The radar has become semi-transparent.

  • Translations for new text have been added for Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian and Spanish.

"You hear that modders? It's up to you to fix what we deliberately accidentally broke to eliminate the competition make the game more fun!... PAY US!"
The thing that broke mods was optimization for the switch which people kept complaining about ok? You can't just take out all your problems on Payload if they accidentally break on thing trying to fix others which a lot of people have been asking for.
Edit: Have you ever considered joining the TT discord where all of the modders discuss updates and how things break? There is always an ongoing discussion about fixing things and the devs actively participate as well to help solve problems.

Thumbs up on those R&D adds. Very nice!

With increased drawing distance, was there some general performance optimization, or was it something that just didn't add much of a hit to begin with?
