I made a backup of the database as part of the update. It could be restored if absolutely necessary.

None of my changes would cause worlds or systems to be regenerated. I will investigate what happened there.

So, I logged in after the update to different survey scans than I had initially for my origin system; I assume these reflect the new algorithm for generating systems based on whatever seed is used. However when I try to do a solar system survey or anything to return the scan back to what I had originally it doesn't update, it remains the "new" scan I had in my database. Mind my system is still the same as it ever was, I only have 1 gas giant, but the survey shows 3 plus a ring around one of the giants (which I do not have).

Is this behavior intended, or have I been out of the loop so long I'm missing something? Still early enough in the game it's making it a tad difficult (not impossible) to compare resources I have available to me.

Finally hit the bottom using a submarine, turns out you have to use submersible vehicles or you can't do it

I've been unable to log in after this update. Occasionally, the game loads up and I can see the planet I am on, but it instantly crashes after that point. This occurs in systems that don't have any gas giants. When debugging, it says it was due to a missing symbol file.

Is it going to be you need a magmex hull to go underground to get vulcium, vulcium hull being needed to go into a gas giant to get adamantite, then adamantite hull being needed to go into a star?

The system scan error is fixed.

Systems that got newly generated since the update last night are going to be broken. Their system scan will show how they should have been generated. It is how they would be regenerated if allowed to decay. It is probably not worth rolling back the database to last night to fix; few systems are likely to be affected.

It is possible to make exceptions for individual systems that are now incorrect. This would be helpful to anyone who got a new homeworld system generated last night. Tell me the system name and I will repair it.

I will take a look at those crashes after the servers finish coming up.

The missing symbol file is a mystery. Perhaps the DLL was broken. It happens that AuAtom13.dll is the one file that was updated this morning.

The symbol files are not distributed.

It could just be that it crashed and it's telling you that you can't effectively run the Visual Studio debugger because the symbol file was not found; unless you like poring over assembly code.

Same issue, however completely different survey scan this time, 2 gas giants, and 2 rings now surrounding an outer frozen planet and an inner inferno planet, but as before the system is still the same, 1 gas giant, no ring.

Would like to add, my system was generated a little shy of a week ago, before the update.

EDIT After Update (11:46am EST): System Surveys are back in order, Thank you Haxus!
