The 2020.1 release will be released on Tuesday, December 22nd 2020
Since there are a lot of features to implement and bugs to fix, we decided to release this maintenance release shortly after the Ignition update.
You might have noticed that we changed the naming system. Starting with this release we’ll switch to a year.number_of_release format. We still want to keep the general sequence of (unnamed) maintenance releases and named (big-)feature releases, although there might be more and smaller maintenance releases in between the named releases than before.
If your APEX console is stuck in a loading state after the update, please make sure to refresh it once after the update to ensure you got the latest version.
Blueprint flight simulator: One of the features that didn’t make it into Ignition was the ability to do a flight simulation with just a blueprint to test how it would perform in a real world scenario. The new command is called
BTFand can be accessed via a button in
Warehouse extensions: Another feature that didn’t make it into a release, in this case it was the Presence release. Warehouses can now be extended up to level 20. The cost of each extension is a multiple of the original costs (cost factor below). The total amount of available units and the amount of units available to a single company increases with each level. For more details check out the handbook.
Recurring production orders: We recently asked for your favorite quality of life improvements and recurring production orders was your top choice. It is now possible to add recurring production orders to any production line. The mechanic behind it is simple: once a recurring production order gets started (e.g. leaves the queue) it is immediately added to the queue again. You can add different recurring orders and even interleave it with regular orders.
- The upper limit for warehouse unit rental fees has been raised:
- 5000 for units on faction worlds
- 8000 for units in faction space
- 15000 for units outside of faction worlds
