  1. Egosoft are back with a new Beta update, they are preparing for the release of the next DLC aswell as polishing off some extant issues. https://forum.egosoft.com/viewtopic.php?f=192&t=405397 Version: 5.00 Beta 1 (469377) - 2022-01-20
  2. Another beta is up : https://steamcommunity.com/app/275850/discussions/0/3203744999897393253/ Experimental Branch 08/12 Fixed an issue that could cause nearby base parts to be deleted when moving a base part. Fixed a few rare crashes.
  3. Couple of hot fixes for the latest beta https://forum.egosoft.com/viewtopic.php?f=192&t=405397 Version: 4.20 Beta 4 HF 1 (465891) - 2021-12-06 [Beta 4 HF 1]Fixed problem with guild submissions in mission briefing menu. [Beta 4 HF 1]Fixed menu crash when opening Ship Overview under certain circumstances. Shaping up nicely :)
  4. Well the NVidia DDS plugin is quite out of date and does not support all DDS formats that modders use these days .. but if you are running an older version of Photoshop and dont need the extra formats then it should be ok (it sufficed for many years for a lot of the Bethesda community modders). Best plugin for Photoshop by far though is as previously mentioned Intel Texture Works Plugin How you install it though very much depends on what version of Photoshop you are running, I cant help there these days, I no longer have Photoshop nor am I up to date with using it. That plugin for Photoshop is the same code as the Paint.NET DDSPlugin is based on, and supports not only the newer BC7 texture formats, but also a few older ones (which the old NVidia driver does not handle as well as the Intel Texture Works plugin does), Intel Texture Works has had a lot more recent development and bug fixing to address some very old issues with some of the lesser used DDS formats aswell as using the newer formats. If you have not experienced it before, have a read about it here https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/developer/articles/tool/intel-texture-works-plugin.html Anyway good luck with your texturing, whatever solution you use
  5. @Arthmoor v3.75 released, fingers crossed for you https://www.nomanssky.com/2021/12/expeditions-revisited-patch-3-75/
  6. aagh that sucks, wish us GOG users could still take part in betas.
  7. I dont use MS Paint so cant advise with those questions But if we are talking about Paint.NET tutorials are here https://forums.getpaint.net/forum/18-tutorials-publishing-only/ and there's one on layers in the latest documentation https://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/WorkingWithLayers.html Edit: Reference G.I.M.P - These days it comes with built in DDS support, adding that old plugin will not work and probably conflicts. Bad news is DDS support with the built in is still based on the old google code plugin, and needs further development to make it compatible with everything these days. G.I.M.P dev made the effort to include rudimentary DDS support, but it is not their main focus and needs newer developers from the open source community to join in. So the best option if you still want to use G.I.M.P, is save out (export) your work in a lossless format like png, load it up in Paint.NET, and then use Paint.NET just to save it out as your desired DDS format texture file. Not ideal if you want to batch process a bunch of files, but helluva lot cheaper than the last option .. Photoshop, with the Intel Texture Works plugin for DDS.
  8. Another video showing whats coming in v5 and the Tides of Avarice DLC (It's in German, no English version available)
  9. 4.20 beta 4 .. https://forum.egosoft.com/viewtopic.php?f=192&t=405397&sid=8436a6e9d580d6674ee982c7c3928413
  10. More experimental updates ..
  11. Top suggestion, I also considered introducing running into the Highlands and paying homage to the Norse Gods with a mass orgy .. Police Scotland might not be too happy about that one though .. then again they seem to turn a blind eye to Neo Druids from what i have heard Edit: I better behave, otherwise I might be struck off my better halfs XMas list, and also miss out on the sausage stuffing
  12. If I were to follow my waaay back Ascendents traditions, I really ought to be celebrating Yule, my origins are also Saxon.
  13. .. and immediately to follow v3.74 release, yet another Experimental is up : https://steamcommunity.com/app/275850/discussions/0/3203744275143952783/
  14. v3.74 released https://www.nomanssky.com/2021/11/expeditions-revisited-patch-3-74/
