Update 1.1.2589 adds shuttle pads and more

Posted March 29th, 2020 by Tynan Sylvester

Steam and GoG Galaxy will update automatically. For those who bought DRM-free on rimworldgame.com, you should re-download from your original download link; it always has the latest version. If you need it resent to you, please go to rimworldgame.com/getmygame

The main feature of this update is the ship landing beacon. Placing four of these on the corners of an open rectangle forms a shuttle landing pad. When shuttles land at the colony, they will land here if they can. In addition, Imperial guests (including the High Stellarch) now land using the shuttle.

This update should be compatible with savegames and mods. We did extensive testing for mod compatibility, but if any further issues come up please let us know on the unstable testing Discord channel here.

Big thanks to everyone who helped test this update!
