    Well this made my day!
    Do not go gentle into that good night,
    Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    Alterra Corp were the people funding the TSF marines in NS2, right? I seem to remember most of the Frontiersmen gear having the Alterra label, and I feel like Docking was an abandoned Alterra base. Does that mean that Subnautica and NS2 are taking place in the same universe?

    this update is really nice, you can really see the graphical improvements on both, seabases AND submarines.
    The only thing thats missing for me now is more fish/animals. It would be so awesome if deep sea would feature loads of glowing fish swarms, as well as big fish having tentacles or something like octopusses and making scary sounds! Would be such an awesome experience!

    Models are done, rigging is done, animation of them is in-progress, then on to programming. They are moving through the pipeline :)

    Disappointing, but understandable. Still can't wait to get home from work and try out the patch, though.

    Great job, I'm impressed with the regular updates, I can't wait to try this on the Oculus, I'm going to a gaming convention called lave Con in July I will have to borrow someones Oculus and demo Subnautica to people :-) They will be impressed...

    Yes, but some things will not be updated. It will tell you when the warning screen popups when you load an old save.
    Personally, I find it best to just make a new game every stable build :)

    Yeah, but hard to tell whether that was just a little joke at the similarities between the propulsion cannon and the gravity gun or something more.

    Definitely a joke towards the HL grav-gun-- Subnautica takes place in the Natural Selection universe as Alterra Corporation is present in Subnautica (just look at the fire hydrant in the pod :)

    Nice Update guys, well done , but -
    But more problems with spawn out from Cyclops when leave steering. Very often, I spawn high above the sea. Sometimes in the Aurora. Pleas fix it so fast as you can !!!

    Great Update! Thanks for all the cool new things. Good job on the prop cannon!

    So what about that patch or whatever that fixes the issue of the minimum requirements screen not letting people close it? =D

    Or did the devs forget about that little issue? I didn't spend money on the game just to watch it sit in my games Library.

    I don't quite understand people like this. You are playing a modern computer game. Go buy a proper computer. If these guys have to dumb it down for crappy computers, then it'll be a crappy game. Not their fault, people need to get with the times.

    If you put in some effort, you can get a good computer for cheap. I got mine off craigslist for $550 and although it's not super powerful I can play Subnautica on max settings with no issues.
