Quick Update on State of DevelopmentJun 18, 2021 - Community AnnouncementsHey everyone! It's been a little quiet lately from our end but I just wanted to let y'all know that we're knee deep in working on Update 5! We don't have anything exciting to show just yet but I'll give y'all a little run down on what general development info we have at the moment for Satisfactory! If you don't feel like reading and would rather get this information in video format then we got ya covered in this video right here! When is Update 5 coming out? Update 5 is slated for release sometime this fall (2021). If you've been with us before you know that we generally won't announce any exact dates until we feel super confident that we can meet them. We'll announce more about the release date for Update 5 once we know more. What's in Update 5? This is still a little bit secret, but once we get further into development we're going to start revealing/teasing content for update 5 through our regular channels. Make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel if you want to be notified about any info on Update 5 as this is where we'll post teasers and info first. However, one thing we can say is that we're working on improving the build modes in the game. When we released update 4 we fixed some bugs related to collision to some of the foundations (aka the cheatcrete™) which resulted in some of the freedom being lost while building in the game. Which sucks. So we reintroduced this bug again! In Update 5 we're focusing on improving the build mechanics in the game so that we can see even more creative builds in the future with having to rely on a bug! As with any update there's also going to be a bunch of optimization and bug fixes coming. This includes fixes for multiplayer. What's the status of Dedicated Servers We're-still-working-on-it™. There's a number of lingering issues with multiplayer that we still need to address before we can launch dedicated servers as currently only the host is able to resolve these issues and with a dedicated server there will be no host around to do so. I know it's been a long time coming and it's sort of a meme at this point but we're doing what we can to get them available as soon as feasibly possible. What else is coming to Satisfactory at-some-point™? There have been a few other things we've confirmed are going to make it in the game at some point before we hit 1.0, and here's a few of them! Signs Kinda self-explanatory. But yes, signs will be coming at some point! We can't imagine Satisfactory hitting 1.0 without signs. In the meantime you can always use the power switches as a sort of lame work around. Or train stations, they also got a text box on them. Not the best solution maybe. I dunno. Train collision/signaling system Ever since we first introduced trains to the game we've always wanted to do more with them. Having some form of train signaling system and/or collisions to trains is something we've been planning to add so expect some improvements to trains sometime in before 1.0. Different Game Modes A lot of pe...Experimental Update v0.4.2.6May 27, 2021 - Community AnnouncementsHi Pioneers!

A developer on stage in a packed auditorium announced a more efficient way to move items between cargo holds, and the crowd around me erupted with "We just won the World Cup"-level cheering. This is what Satisfactory's update 4 trailer reminds me of. Today's update adds hoverpacks, drones and particle accelerators to the factory building game, but it feels like it's a set of street lights turning on at the end that would get the biggest cheer. Read more Update 4 is Out Now!Apr 13, 2021 - Community AnnouncementsWhat's up! Update 4 is now finally available on Early Access! This update is jam-packed with new content! So let me break it down for y'all! If you're looking for the complete patch notes of the update then scroll to the bottom of the post! https://i.imgur.com/q5YKhs8.png Drones Transporting things on conveyor belts is cool and all - but transporting things using drones is indisputably better, so we added that. Still, they wouldn’t let me stand on them though on account that it could interfere with the drone’s avionics. I don’t blame ‘em. Drones are designed for long-range, low-capacity transportation and unlocks in tier 7 & 8. The drones are fully automated, traveling between two fixed ports and navigating themselves around any obstacles they encounter along the way. Each port can only contain one drone but they move across the map extremely quickly and are far easier to set up than Trains, Belts, or Trucks. Drones require batteries as fuel and their consumption rate and travel speed become more efficient as delivery distances increase. They can’t carry much, but they’re doing their best. https://i.imgur.com/nluYGSz.png Hover pack and Ziplines But drones aren’t the only thing flying around! There’s new equipment pioneers from FICSIT Inc. can also utilize such as the brand-new hover pack to get a good overview of their production lines and build from a higher vantage point! Hover packs draws power from the power grid and doesn’t require any extra fuel to function. However, they’re not the fastest way to get around and explore with, but not everything’s a competition. In addition to this there’s also a new tool called the zipline, used to zip around your power poles in your base! https://i.imgur.com/Ke8ESHq.png Nuclear Power & New Buildings We’ve extended the nuclear refinement processing the game to be able to produce Plutonium Fuel Rods. Not only that but there’s also a bunch of new buildings in the update that play an integral part in some of the nuclear production lines such as the blender, the particle accelerator, and the resource well pressurizer & extractor. But also, some that will improve the existing aspects of the game such as the power storage and power switch. Blender The Blender combines up to 2 fluid and 2 solid resources, and therefore earns its name of next level fluid related production. After unlocking the Nuclear Power milestone in Tier 8, the Blender can be used to refine Uranium straight into Encased Uranium Cells. Further down the line, the previously useless Uranium Waste can now be refined into Plutonium Fuel Rods for even more power generation. Particle Accelerator This spectacular machine puts the power of matter conversion and generation into your hands. It is the last part of the nuclear production chain, and is used to create both Plutonium Pellets and Nuclear Pasta. Resource Well Pressurizer & Extractor Nitrogen is the first gas added to Satisfactory. It functions like other fluids except that it doesn't require pum...Update 4 Fixes v0.4.0.12Apr 12, 2021 - Community Announcements**Hi Pioneers!** Another week another round of fixes, all crashes related to loading a save should be fixed now™, Miners are upgradable again without side effects and a few more fixes before the big day tomorrow :o Are we forgetting something?

Yet another small but hopefully meaningful patch for you all Prison Architect's developers almost made a 3D Factorio in 2017Apr 6, 2021 - Rock, Paper, ShotgunIntroversion Software, the makers of Prison Architect, have been making a video series about all the prototypes they've created and scrapped over the past several years. This month's prototype is 'Minecraft Factory' or 'Voxel Factory', an attempt in 2017 to make a Factorio-like game out of Minecraft-style blocks. You can watch a video where they demonstrate the prototype and why they binned the idea - and then you can buy and play it, if you like, with all the money going to charity.
