    Change log:

    IMPORTANT: Mission changes for this release will wipe existing missions

    - Fix for crash when reporting bindings
    - Crash fix for when a cargo canister spawns with either an invalid item, or one set up incorrectly
    - Speculative fix for world transform crash
    - Fix streaming error in the faction manager
    - Fix UI crash in options screen
    - More aggressive guards to prevent corruption of the physics proxy pair manager
    - Fix crash with terrain evaluation for landing
    - Added new graphics option for bottom end video cards to better handle the requirements for Horizons
    - Fix VR rendering of surface schematic
    - Optimnisations for environment map capture
    - Load shaders earlier again on AMD to reduce stalls on loading sequence
    - Swap order of long/lat on the orbital HUD: the order is now; latitude, longitude, gravity
    - Altered the null chance for POIs such that there is a nice fall off between civilised and unexplored space
    - Fix POI's that were visible form ship in the form of a disk but were not spawning when in the ship
    - Reduced damage boots from synthesis
    - Fixed multi-cannon basic synthesis so that it only gives 50% ammo refill
    - Planet ports only care about crimes committed within 4km
    - Moved targeting bones to make them more centred in the rock so the turret wont miss
    - Fix for wing beacons making player ships spawn colliding with existing ships
    - Disable targeting of sub-targets for planetary turrets
    - Fix for the assert/silly transforms that happen when you try to Glide down to a planet that's stuck through a ring
    - Optimisations for Skimmers
    - Adjusted fade off for POI blue circle so that it starts fading out at 2km and fades out by 1.5km
    - Modified timings for Data points on easy settlements based on feed back all should be at least 120 many medium to large should be 180 seconds
    - Increased the texture resolution of the cargo bay
    - Disabled steering controls when in headlook mode when using a mouse for both

    Will test POI further in order to see if the game use now pleasant to play with them.

    Thanks for the update.

    Cool stuff! Thanks a lot!

    However, I'm a bit worried that there is no word about the broken ranking system https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showth...ghlight=topcat. This should really work properly when Horizons will be released. How else could I grind for the Duke rank to get a Cutter?

    And there seems to be still no fix for the firegroups and Scanner issues in the SRV. It would be nice, if these will be fixed too at release, though the game remains playable with those issues.

    Zac, any idea what this item implies? Thanks.

    - Requires missions wipe. Add settlement market id to interface and disable targets missions

    Will this add the Alphabet Bobbleheads into the game which nobody asked for?

    It means that the item requires a mission wipe and that interface and disable targets type missions should have their name included in the mission data.

    No news regarding the AMD issues in supercruise? I'm sure you, as FDEV, are in touch with the guys at AMD driver section..

    Tomorrow is the release date of Horizons and a lot of players are still there with this catastrophic issue (myself included) that's perduring from about 5 months from now.

    Thank you in advance.

    I planned not to play before release, but now i have to

    Thank you for all your efforts FD. I am especially interested to see how the new material formats will influence the performance during planetary approach, which is the only part of Horizons, where my GTX 970 goes below 60 fps.
