    Hi All!

    I've been really enjoying the game, but since the Salad Days update, honestly I haven't played. Before that I progressed quite far, but all my savings were lost. Will this update also delete the save files? Is there any way to keep the saves and add them back after the update?

    Thank you in advance and keep up the good work! The game is amazing! :)

    @Nantanglor They may not get deleted, but they probably won't be usable. In an early access game like this, I wouldn't get attached to any particular session of the game. Kind of a bummer but that's how it goes in the early access world. :/

    I've been playing Below Zero steadily since the first EA release. With this update the game no longer launches - it crashes on launch before even loading anything visible. I don't see the splash screen, loading screen, nothing - Steam tries to launch the game, I see a title bar in the Windows toolbar, then the Subnautica title bar disappears and the Steam launch button switches back from "STOP" to "PLAY".

    Anyone notice the Stranger Things reference in the title and the title's look? Nice to knoe that they also watch the series! If you havent seen it, it is a must watch for anyone who is a fan of Steven Spielberg's films and is the best TV show i've watched yet. Also love subnautica and cant wait for below zero to come out of early access!

    Have you tried verifying your game files on Steam? I'd recommend trying that to see if it resolves the issue.

    After last update, I can't play below zero. When I open the game, it shows black screen and wording "Loading..." all the time. I try to reinstall and verifying game files 2 times but nothing happens. So, how I can do that ?

    I have the black screen with LOADING on it. You can hear sound playing from the game, but nothing ever happens. I have verified my game, and have deleted and reinstalled the game with no effect.

    Thank you! A bit disturbing, but somehow I had a corrupted file. Fixed and working now.

    Thanks, you are probably right. Can't wait for the full release :)

    I like a lot of the stuff you've added, including seeing the "legs" of base parts in experimental. But please, for the love of all that is holy, bring back the old Booster Tank. I liked the risk/reward element of spending oxygen to go fast or even being able to constantly boost on the waters surface, but now all that is gone. It increases my speed by 0.5m/s under water, costs way too much oxygen, and can't be used even close to the surface. If you guys insist on removing the Stasis Rifle AND the best means of escape outside of the Seatruck, I can't in good conscience support this game any further, and will hassle you for a refund until it is given
