    Greetings citizens,

    Instead of a release, we felt it necessary to address an issue that we've been discussing for a few months now.

    When working on some mechanic changes and additions, specifically fixing weapon balance and upgrading the AI, we kept stumbling upon fundamental problems with our current way of building structures with at its core, the power system.

    For this reason we discussed those problems and came up with a possible solution, which we would like to present to you here:

    Power System Overhaul

    Please use that thread for discussion.

    Thank you for playing StarMade,

    To all NVIDIA card users that updated their driver to version 378.49 released on Jan. 24: Unfortunately, this update breaks some basic OpenGL functions. There is currently nothing we can do but wait for NVIDIA to fix the issues. Other games (e.g. Minecraft) are affected as well.

    Drivers can be found here: NVIDIA Driver Downloads - Advanced Search
    OR
    Driver Rollback | NVIDIA to rollback without download.

    _____________________

    EDIT:

    NVIDIA have been too slow to push out a fix, so we've had to come up with our own.

    We've managed to circumvent the issue by calling javaw.exe directly, we've modified the new launcher to do this. Since we prepackage Java with our latest launcher, we were able to avoid NVIDIA's driver issues altogether.

    This fix only works with our new launcher (default Steam launcher and beta download launcher on star-made.org). Using our old (Java) launcher will still encounter the issue, you will need to either switch to our new launcher or rollback your NVIDIA driver.

    You can download our new launcher here (if you already have it, it would have auto-updated)

    New launcher is available with the "download new launcher" button.
