Update 0.6.1 Patch 3 – Mechanical Man

0.6.1_update2

Hello, Engineers!
We’re continuing our fixes for 0.6.1 with another fix-filled update! Over the past week we’ve seen lots of amazing buildings being constructed, both by you guys playing singleplayer and with your friends.

This week we have improvements for everyone. We have performance improvements for the servers, including a fix for the lag spikes when people would connect. We also tweaked the way the mechanical crafting stations work, they should be a lot more fun to use now. The Ancestral Torch can now be placed on your walls, so everyone knows you are the proud owner. We rebalanced the tools, fixed some crashes, and we whitelisted the crafting components again.
Enjoy the update!
