Ladders and Gravity Wells Broken
The update yesterday broke ladders and gravity wells in old ship designs. Ladders and gravity wells are quite different in the new designs vs the old designs; the AI was changed to think about them differently. The changes broke things.

Servers Crashing
Several servers crashed since the update yesterday, caused by a change in the AI ladder code. The crash is fixed.

Captain's Chair
Captain's chair in new designs was not switching to other manned stations. That is fixed.

Door Structure
Images to show the structure for doors in the designer were added to the usage tips.

Rings around worlds got some attention.
  • Thickness of ring based on width of ring.
  • Variable spacing between rings. Old gaps were too uniform.
  • Texture less diffuse.
  • Varying textures between rings.
  • Huge rings adjusted. No more dinner plates.
  • Perlin noise octave added.
  • Close range rendering fixed.

I mean, don't get me wrong, we all want to ram our passengers' heads through the ceiling sometimes, but I thought you'd like to see this. It is post-update, as of this morning. Course this WAS on one of the stuck ships.

Well after this last update some crashes caused by some window jigs I've been trying have stopped... (one jig I have still caused a crash)

Though the crashing has mostly stopped the problems with missing faces or extra faces caused when jug cutting the windows still is around.
