Early Access Patch Version: 0.8.22.9331 - October 29th, 2021

Dear Engineers,

It's almost the last 1/6 of 2021, and the season is changing. Dyson Sphere Program is also changing little by little, with the combat system development in progress.

See the latest patch notes below!

Features

  • Added a new space navigation direction icon in the bottom left corner of the screen.
  • Added 4 new sound FX, including advisor pop-ups, tutorial pop-ups, and several UI sound FX.
  • Added the Kickstarter Reward - Cosmic Radio ( will be shown as Cosmic Message in game).

Changes

  • The Random button for seed selection has been changed to Seed Increment. Players can now go back to the previous seeds more easily.

Bugfixes

  • Fixed the bug that the color of the shadow of some selected buildings may go wrong when the selected buildings are removed in Blueprint copy mode.
  • Fixed the bug that it was possible to build a conveyor belt between two tanks under certain circumstances.
  • Fixed the bug that the UI of Matrix Lab was out of form in English language.
  • Fixed the bug when the button to rotate the building is not the default button, the mining machine couldn't be rotated when ignoring the grid adsorption.</noinclude>

Early Access Patch Version: 0.8.22.8915 - September 29th, 2021

Dear Engineers,

The CentreBrain just meet a computing issue, so we have to cancel the update scheduled for Sept 30... and rearrange it earlier to Sept 29! 😄

You can always trust the CentreBrain!

Features

  • 100 new Steam achievements are now live! Time to enrich your showcase!
  • 42 Milestones are now live in-game! This system will engrave your glorious moments for each new game!
  • Added new pop-up for achievements and milestones achieved. You can press P to open the analysis panel to check the achievements and milestones you have reached.
  • Added new abnormal data detection function. If abnormal data is detected, achievement conditions and MilkyWay data will not be checked and uploaded. (Abnormal data includes and is not limited to: abnormal extra items, technology unlocked, and other game values tampered by third party softwares, etc.)
  • Added Achievement reset function.

Please know that for [0.8.21] and earlier versions' savedata, achievement detection is not enabled by default. You can manually turn it on in [Analysis Panel (P)] - [Achievements].

Bugfixes

  • Fixed the bug where it may report bugs without reason when building Conveyor Belt in Blueprint Mode.
  • Fixed the bug that may wrongly indicate the need of surface support when building Splitters in Blueprint Mode.
  • Fixed the bug where the Icarus' night light may illuminate the wrong position of satellites in the case of multiple satellites.
  • Fixed the bug where the ice surface is not affected by the fog effect when observing the Scarlet Ice Lake from a distance.

IMPORTANT TO KNOW!

We'll be at Tokyo Game Show at 11:00 a.m. Beijing Standard Time on September 30. The producer is going to bring you new messages in the online event, don't miss it!

Early Access Patch Version: 0.8.21.8562 - September 16th, 2021

Hi engineers!

When you finish the update and enter the game, you'll find the Icarus is kinda different - Yes, Icarus the HD Remastered! New textures, cool animations, and even more hardcore (face) landing technology! Along with it comes new types of gas giants, factory rendering efficiency improvements, and other enhancements.

We've looked at a few ways to save engineers from having to reopen a new game every time a new planet type is added. For example, we tried the method of "leaving the visited planets unchanged and re-randomizing the unvisited planets", but we found that the randomization process was too complicated that the visited planets may also change under it. So now we are adding "subtypes" of planets to solve the problem.

Take a look at today's update.

Features

  • The model of Icarus was remade. It now has high-resolution body modeling and textures!
  • Now Icarus has more colorways. You can press C to open the Body Panel to change the color scheme.
  • Added jump animation for Icarus.
  • Added 6 different standby animations for Icarus.
  • Added 4 sub-types of gas giants (gas giants that have not been reached in the old version savedata may become new sub-types of gas giants after the update)
  • Added 1 new main type of gas giants. It produces hydrogen/deuterium at 84%/16% (It can only be visible in the new game)
  • Added 1 atmosphere sub-type for Arid Desert (Arid Desert that has not been reached in the old version savedata may have the new atmosphere sub-type after the update)
  • Added 9 types of rocks and 9 types of gravel decoration to the planet Ashen Gelisol (Ashen Gelisol that has not been reached in the old version savedata may have the new types of rocks and decorations after the update)
  • Added LOD1 / LOD2 rendering levels for Matrix Lab. The rendering frame rate will be improved on planets with dense Matrix Labs.
  • Added LOD1 / LOD2 for Fractionator. The rendering frame rate will be improved on planets with dense Fractionators.
  • Added LOD1 / LOD2 render levels for Solar Panels. The rendering frame rate will be improved on planets with dense of Solar Panels.
  • Remade Space capsule model and textures.

Changes

  • Optimized the Icarus animation blending.
  • Optimized the steering controlling when Icarus running and flying.

Early Access Patch Version: 0.8.20.8116 - August 23th, 2021

Hey engineers!

We have done some, hmmm, subsequent updates from the last update. Hope you Icarus have a happy Blueprint and a happy game!

[Version 0.8.20.8116]

Bugfix

  • Fixed a bug that the Conveyor Belt could not be connected end to end in the Blueprint construction mode caused by the optimization of the Conveyor Belt collision in [8092] patch.
  • Fixed a bug that the Logistics Station could not be connected in a specific location caused by the optimization of the Conveyor Belt collision in [8092] patch.
  • Fixed a bug that the Conveyor Belt and the Conveyor Belt near the pole could still be connected even though they are too far away from each other.


Thank you for your continuing support! You can send your feedback in Discord and Google Form! See you next time!

Early Access Patch Version: 0.8.20.8092 - August 20th, 2021

Hi engineers, how's going? We brought some new fixes to improve your operation experiences.

[version 0.8.20.8092]

Features

  • Added the real-time calculation logic of the Conveyor Belt into the multi-threaded system.

7da54c62a2cc62f461c3c4538f0ac835c2c7c278.png

Changes

  • Optimized the length of savedata. Reduced the length of [Entity Data] by about 50%, and the length of [Conveyor Belt and Cargo] by about 10%. Please "Save" once after updating the version to enable this optimization.
  • Modified the collision detection of the Conveyor Belt in the Blueprint construction mode to solve collision problems that may occurred during the construction of the multi-layer Conveyor Belt in Blueprint.
  • Optimized the algorithm for controlling target frame rate and slightly improved the utilization of the GPU at a fixed frame rate.

BugFix

  • Fixed a bug that the building may leave an afterimage in Blueprint construction mode.
  • Fixed a bug that the position of the Sorter connected to the Conveyor Belt was abnormally shifted in the Blueprint construction mode.
  • Fixed a bug that the deflection angle of the Sorter in the Blueprint construction mode was not detected in advance.
  • Fixed a bug that the canceled Key-binding may still keep triggering.

Early Access Patch Version: 0.8.20.7996 - August 13th, 2021

Dyson Sphere Program engineers,

We gradually improved the blueprint system. From this version, the new Blueprint generated by the new production line manually built by the engineers will no longer have the problem of Sorters mismatch.

However, Bugs in the old version or some early MODs such as "Sorter quick copy" caused abnormal game data, and these abnormalities may remain in the blueprint generated by the production line of the old version. An abnormal blueprint may also contain mismatched sorters, and so on.

Therefore, for future Blueprint dissemination considerations, we hope our engineers can use the newly built production line in the version 0.8.20.7996 (or higher) when making Blueprints, and not copy Blueprints built lower than 0.8.20.7996 In addition, please delete and do not spread the Blueprint that reports the sorter error to prevent data errors* from spreading through the Blueprint. We will continue to optimize related issues to make the game more perfect.

Thanks for your support!

Oops, just want you to know that we are also producing some new, small things besides Blueprint optimization...

* If there is an "Incorrect data of Sorter" prompt when copying the Blueprint, it means that the sorter data in the production line is incorrect and the Blueprint cannot be generated.

Changes

  • Adjusted the logic of the Blueprint copy mode. Now the Sorters will be checked before the Blueprint generate. If the Sorter's data is incorrect, the non-compliant Sorter(s) will be marked in red and the blueprint will not be generated.
  • Adjusted the logic of the Blueprint construction mode. Now the position and direction of the connection interface between the Sorter and the facilities will be checked.

Early Access Patch Version: 0.8.20.7962 - August 12th, 2021

Hi engineers,

In addition to the optimization and fix of the Blueprint system, today we also bring you a brand new "Performance Test" tool. You can use it to detect how much computer performance each part of your production line consumes. The test results of this tool will further guide the next optimization work.

Besides, today we also want to make a statement about the source code of Dyson Sphere Program: We have published part of the code, which is intended to support players in making Mods, but does not mean that our code can be published or posted wherever, who want.

[Version 0.8.20.7962]

Features

  • Added sand and dust VFX for Arid Desert.
  • Added the "Performance Test" function to the statistics panel. You can see real-time CPU consumption, GPU rendering works and savedata length analysis to optimize the production line.
  • Added the real-time path calculation logic of the Dyson Sphere Rocket into the multi-threaded system.

Changes

  • Modified the logic of automatic wrap-line longitude calculating in the blueprint area in the Blueprint copy mode.
  • Adjusted the logic of delete buildings in Blueprint. Now the Conveyor Belts connected to this building will be automatically removed.
  • Now the entries with both production and consumption of 0 are not displayed in the production statistics panel.

BugFix

  • Low-level code fix: Fixed the bug that the Conveyor Belt's renderer VRAM was not deleted after it had been deleted.
  • Fixed the bug that the slot connection may be misaligned when using the Blueprint to restore the Sorter.

Thank you for your continuing support! You can send your feedback in Discord and Google Form! See you next time!

Early Access Patch Version: 0.8.19.7863 - August 4th, 2021

Engineers,

We made some fixes today to help Icarus to build its assembly line more neat and tidy.

[Version 0.8.19.7863]

Changes

Adjusted the mouse pivot position of the Blueprint mode from the center to the starting point of Blueprint.

BugFix

  • Fixed the bug in Blueprint mode that if several Conveyor Belts were input to one Conveyor Belt may broke the connection.
  • Fixed the bug in Blueprint Mode that Conveyor Belt could not connect to "dead spots" when the belts were dragged and built in batches.

Thank you for your continuing support! You can send your feedback in Discord and Google Form! See you next time!

Early Access Patch Version: 0.8.19.7815 - August 3rd, 2021

Hi engineers,

We brought a memo tag function for you in today's update. You can mark the Conveyor Belt in advance while planning for a new assembly line to manage your production more smoothly. By the way, we have started a survey on Kickstarter for the backers who supported the tiers include a physic reward. Please don't forget to finish the survey.

[Version 0.8.19.7815]

Features

  • Now you can add an icon tag on Conveyor Belt as a memo, and the memo icon tag can be replicated in Blueprint. Memo - your best friend for production line management.

Changes

  • Now you can press the right mouse button to cancel the icon selection in the Blueprint/Blueprint set.
  • Now the space navigation obscured by planets won't be displayed when Icarus is standing on a planet surface.
  • Modified the collision detection in Blueprint build mode, in order to solve the problem occurs in savedata from the previous version caused by Blueprint applicate failure of collision detection between Conveyor Belt and Logistics Tower.
  • Removed the color hint that shows insufficient items in Blueprints

BugFix

  • Fixed the appearance of White Dwarf
  • Fixed the bug that the building facilities at the pole were unable to rotate when they were connecting to the Conveyor Belt and the Sorter
  • Fixed the bug in Blueprint build mode that the Conveyor Belt may not be able to connect end to end after dragging and mass building around the equator.
  • Fixed the bug that the ice appearance of Scarlet Ice Lake was not displayed correctly in space
  • Fixed the bug that the ice surface of Scarlet Ice Lake did not gray out in Blueprint mode
  • Fixed the bug that the Conveyor Belt could not be covered correctly when it is dragged in high latitude areas in Blueprint build mode

Early Access Patch Version: 0.8.19.7757 - July 28th, 2021

Hi engineers,

We received feedbacks about had problems with Blueprint snap, so we updated it in this patch and hope it can greatly reduce the difficulty of building Blueprints near the poles and in other situation. Let's take a look:

[Version 0.8.19.7757]

Feature

  • Now the Blueprint is able to snap to the pole automatically.
  • Added automatic snapping to the Blueprint Paste Mode. For Blueprints that across multiple tropics, it can automatically identify the rotation of the north and south poles and automatically align the latitude and longitude.
  • Added the auxiliary line of tropics in Blueprint Mode.

Change

  • Modified the Blueprint UI layout of the copy and paste interface.

BugFix

  • Fixed the bug that the location of the building may kept changing when dragging in the Blueprint Paste Mode.
  • Fixed the bug that the collision between Conveyor Belt and veins may failed in the Blueprint Mode.
  • Fixed the bug that an error may be reported when overwritten the Blueprint new save path with the same name.

Thank you for your continuing support! You can send your feedback in Discord and Google Form! See you next time!

Early Access Patch Version: 0.8.19.7715 - July 26th, 2021

Hi engineers,

Early Access Patch Version: 0.8.19.7677 - July 25th, 2021

Hi engineers,

We are still allocating and fixing the problems reflected in the BluePrint update, and we will keep update and optimize the BluePrint system. Thank you for all of your encouragement and support for Dyson Sphere Program!

Before the update log, here is some tips for BluePrint system: How to use blueprints: Double-click the saved blueprint to use it. We will add more prompt in future updates.

About the Tropic (details in previous Dev Progress): The vicinity of the tropic can be divided into six situations according to the number of grids on both sides (the ratio is 3:4, 4:5, 5:6, 5:8, 2:3, and 1:2). The place vicinity type of the tropic to apply the BluePrint must be the same as where the BluePrint comes from. We suggest to just simply follow the instructions to apply the BluePrint, more prompts will be added in future updates.

[Version 0.8.19.7677]

Changes

Now you can recognize the different status of facilities (pre-select, pre-build and lack of item) when applying a blueprint by the different colors.

Bugfix

Fixed the bug that you may achieve item for free when upgrade/downgrade pre-view model in white color in BluePrint system (the white color appears when you don't have enough item to finish the upgrade/downgrade). Fixed the bug that the Blueprint floor color did not display at higher ground that made the white pre-view model too shiny. Fixed the bug that a red error message may occured when type with certain IMEs in blueprint browser.

Thank you for your continuing support! You can send your feedback in Discord and Google Form! See you next time!

Early Access Patch Version: 0.8.19.7662 - July 23rd, 2021

Dear engineers,

\WE REACHED BLUEPRINT SYSTEM YAAAY!!!/
This is the first time for Dyson Sphere Program to have a BluePrint system. We are well aware that the system is still in an immature stage, and our team will be ready to fight the bugs in the few days after the BluePrint patch. If you find a bug, please don't hesitate to send your feedback in Discord or Google Form!, we will listen carefully and continue to improve the BluePrint system! At the same time, when you use the Blueprint function the first times, please do NOT forget to save and back up the savedata, just in case.

REMINDER: You don't have to restart the game for the BluePrint system. Blueprint system can directly apply to the existing savedata.

[Version 0.8.19.7662]

Feature

Added Blueprint System.

  • Now you can create (copy) a new Blueprint. You can select the range of Blueprint by clicking or box selection. The ready-to-build facilities can also be included in the Blueprint system.
  • Now you can apply (paste) the Blueprint on the planet. You can paste the Blueprint in a chain if you hold and drag the mouse.
  • Blueprint construction can realize the quick mass upgrade and downgrade of existing buildings, as well as direct coverage of building recipes and settings.
  • Added the Blueprint facility statistical function. You can right-click and delete the single building you don't want in the Blueprint, or delete a certain kind of facility in the Blueprint statistical panel.
  • Added Blueprint saving and Blueprint code export functions.
  • Added the custom information function of Blueprints. Now you can customize the name, description of Blueprint.
  • CentreBrain upgraded Icarus! Icarus can manually mine the Gas giants now. Don't be caught by Gas giant and become space junk again, Icarus!
  • Added 12 rock models and textures for Arid Desert.
  • Added the model and texture of the Plane Smelter.
  • Added LOD1 and LOD2 of the Plane Smelter, and optimized its GPU cost.
  • Add a scene for the main title. From now on, the 2 main title scenes will be randomly displayed.


Changes

  • Modified the key detection logic to resolve key conflicts such as [C] and [Ctrl]+[C].
  • In the Surface Formation Mode, the color prompt mask on the decorated foundation is removed, and the color prompt mask on the undecorated foundation is retained.


Balance

  • Increase the number of Drones obtained through the "Communication Control" technology (This function can only be applied in a new game. The old savedata can still make up the number of Drones by upgrading the technology).
  • Adjusted the flight speed of construction drones improved by the "drone engine" technology(This function can only be applied in a new game. The old savedata can still make up the speed of Drones by upgrading the technology).
  • Increased the power generation of Mini Fusion Power Station (9MW ->15MW).


Bugfix

  • Fixed a bug that occurred after optimizing the sorter in the [7275] version: the cargo at the end of the conveyor belt or at the node of the closed conveyor belt interface cannot be picked.
  • Fixed the range detection problem when the foundation buries/restores veins.
  • Fixed a bug that the Drone couldn't work properly because its speed was too fast after the technology upgrade.
  • Fixed a bug that key setting conflicts will not be detected when restoring the default keys.
  • Fixed a bug that the combination key may be invalid when setting the combination key in the key setting.
  • Fixed a bug where there are multiple "keys not set" that will be detected as key conflicts.
