In this weeks minor update, we are adding the new vehicle mounted welders and end-effectors, designed for use with autonomous and unmanned vehicles, and manned submarines.
The new welder is an electric type welder and works underwater. As you may expect, when active it repairs any damaged blocks immediately in front of it.
The end-effector component can interact with any button immediately in front of it, as well as interacting with doors.
With the combination of these 2 new parts, players can now achieve a great many tasks previously requiring manual operation. This can be particularly useful when in hazardous or hostile environments such as high temperature, deep under water, or around radioactive materials.
As well as these new components, there are many important bug fixes and improvements. Please see the full changelog below for full details.
We look forward to reading your feedback, and seeing what players create and get up to with the new components!
Much love <3,
The Stormworks Developers
