Hey everyone,

Here are the final patch notes for the Horizons and 1.5 (Ships) updates.

Remember you can get ready for the update by making sure you have downloaded the latest version of the launcher from here.

The servers are currently down and we are expecting them to be up between 4pm – 6pm GMT. However, we will keep you updated on this thread.

Change log:

New additions

– Fix crash in kinematics
– Fix audio emitter error
– Speculative fix for crash on shut down
– Fix crash creating a new player ship during death
– Fix crash caused by pressing the back button when trying to bind to an axis
– Don’t crash when a prospector limpet collides with a planet surface (or any other physics object without user data)
– Make sure that the reverse mode is triggered if enter neutral/reverse if our velocity is negative
– Fix hand-ins for planetary missions
– Remove certain unused stations from planetary and pad size checks
