    3. The Best of Times?

      0ldSkull
      Updated for game version 0.200.332 to add new textures. This is also a general quality overhaul to address a number of flaws and inconsistencies as well as enhance normal and specular maps. Most blocks have been updated in some way, though not all will be noticeable in the game.

      Highlights:
      • New power system block textures
      • Repulsor block textures
      • New missile module textures
      • Revised thruster block textures
