I’m finding some things very frustrating as a very old player. I can easily see fresh fruit, for instance, having a texture quality debuff if frozen, but lasagne, or spagetti, or B&R should heat and thaw without consequence. I eat frozen foods like that IRL and experience no downsides. I’m updating regularly, but I don’t see any discussion of the mushy debuff, so I’m not sure it’s anyone except me. I kinda like the massive bumps to big Z’s, although they’re gatekeeping pretty hard for the areas they spawn. The recent changes to solar and electric really nerf solar vehicles; you can barely keep a rig operating with 20 solar panels and a few devices, which isn’t exactly a downside, but definitely seems to require hybrid engines. You can’t self-install CBM’s anymore, which is expected. Haven’t found a single autodoc yet, so have a big pile of bionics to install when opportunity presents.
Think those are the big changes in the last few weeks. On the whole, I’d say worth updating, but expect a different game from even 4 months back.
