That said, it’s as of yet unclear when we’ll be getting new content for the game after this. It remains to be seen if the developer teases future content and plans to get into a regular cadence of content updates.

Version 45 full patch notes

The patch notes are a bit more vague than is standard for most multiplayer games, leaving some mystery to as to how these changes may affect the overall gameplay experience. The full patch notes are as follows:

  • Added chemistry flasks and dramatic Masks, Nutcrackers with guns and spray paint cans for funs.
  • Rail cheese has been nearly destroyed, but the forest giant is easier to avoid.
  • Added to radar boosters the “flash” command, and the ship’s new “signal translator” will be in great demand.
  • Keybind settings are in, and I gave the item delivery ship a jolly spin.
  • Gravity is more dangerous, but improved Mansion map generations will be good for us.
  • Arachnophobia mode will ease your fear, and I wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Here’s an abridged version of these notes with some additional things players have discovered:

  • Chemistry Flasks, Masks, Spray Paint, a functional Woopie Cushion (nice), and wrapped gifts added, assumedly as collectable scrap
  • New ship decor added
  • Signal translator added to the store. It allows players to transmit a text message to every player in the lobby, though it’s limited to 9 characters
  • Rails have been nerfed as a way to avoid monsters
  • Forest Giant nerfed
  • Fall damage increased
  • Improved Mansion map generation, though it’s not clear what “improved” means
  • Radar boosters given the “flash” command on the ship terminal, giving them the ability to flash enemies and teammates.
  • Keybind settings added
  • Arachnophobia mode added, though it literally just turns spiders into floating text that reads, “Spider”.
  • Shotguns have been added and can be attained by killing the Nutcracker
  • Masks can possess players and turn them into a zombie-like monster, meaning two monsters were technically added in this update.

Additionally, there’s an option to play the game’s previous version for those who want their mods to work without having to update them.
