Update 31: What Was Left Behind Update 33: New Frontiers

Hello Roughnecks!

It’s finally time for our first major Post-Launch Update! The main dish is two brand-new mission types: Escort Duty and On-site Refining. Both mission types focus on heavy duty mining equipment that needs tender loving care and protection from a team of hard working dwarves! The side dish includes a ton of new cosmetics, further weapon balancing, a much-needed overhaul of the Assignment Board, and many other things. Bon appetit!

It’s time to get greasy! There has never been a better time to be a combat miner working for DRG. See you in the mines!

— With Love,

The Ghost Ship Crew

Update 32: Roughnecks At Work was released on October 22nd, 2020.

Version: 1.32.45559.0

Update Preview[]

Update Changes[]

2 New Missions[]

On-Site Refining[]

Management has a new thirst: Liquid Morkite. They are sending you in alongside an On-Site Refinery to fill. Locate the Liquid Morkite wells and hook them up to orbital-insertion industrial Pumpjacks, connect them to the Refinery by building huge, winding pipelines, and pump those deposits dry! Oh, and the good people down in RnD even felt generous enough to build in a handy way to use the pipelines for quick, easy, and SAFE* traversal.

  • Check the clause 3.15 of your contract to read more about the company’s definition of “safe”.

Escort Duty[]

In this heavily combat-focused mission you are sent in to obtain a mysterious Ommoran Heartstone! Only the specially built autonomous Drilldozer can make it through the outer shell of the Ommoran and reveal the prize inside: The priceless Ommoran Heartstone. The Drilldozer will land at a safe distance, and then automatically home in on the Ommoran. Your job is to keep the dang thing safe and fueled as it digs its way towards the objective. Guard it with your life, Miners!

New Assignment: Roughnecks At Work[]

This new Assignment serves as a crash course in how to safely complete the new missions and make it back alive - and will reward you with some fancy new headwear on completion. What’s not to love?

New Cosmetics[]

Attention, fashion freaks! The new fall collection has just dropped with a beautiful selection of new Beards, Headwear, and Hairdos! 27 new Cosmetics have been added to the Shop, 11 new Cosmetics can be forged with Matrix Cores, and 1 new Headwear will be rewarded by completing the new assignment.

New DLC: Roughneck Pack[]

If you really want to rough it up, the new Roughneck Pack has you covered. Spice up your looks with four new sets of unique armor (one per class), new helmets, and new Paintjobs. This pack is squarely aimed at those that can’t be bothered dressing up as a space marine, and just want to get stuck into the hard work at hand! Finally, show off those figurative guns - as well as that choice selection of tattoos you’ve kept under wraps for so long!

On top of the Armors, the pack comes with two unique helmets, as well as a new Paintjob for Bosco and your Pickaxe.

Randomize Cosmetic In Wardrobe[]

Talking about fashion...if you are one of those persons who can’t decide which helmet to wear or how to style your beard or maybe you are just too afraid to try something new and daring, well….we got great news for you: The Wardrobe has been equipped with new Randomize buttons - Full Outfit as well per Category. Trying out new and unexpected combos has never been easier!

Assignment Board Visual Overhaul[]

DRG just invested in a better Assignment Board. Enjoy a fancy and more intuitive layout as you select your next assignment!

Throw Mechanic Changes[]

Controls: When carrying gems and other heavy items you can now throw on both [LEFT AND RIGHT MOUSE BUTTON] on PC or [LEFT AND RIGHT TRIGGER] on XBox. We made this change to accommodate the Fuel Canister (used in the Escort Duty mission) which is carried like a gem but also has functionality like a weapon or tool. In the future we could imagine having you find other tools and weapons that could be used in a similar way.

Auto Cancel Throw: If you do not release the throw button after reaching max throwing power the throw will auto-cancel after a short time.

The Ghost Ship Crew

Mini M.U.L.E.s are no longer consumed by the terrain surrounding the Ommaran Heartstone, and you can no longer deposit mini M.U.L.E. legs into the M.U.L.E.

Holiday Update[]

14th December, 2020

Notes from the Developers: It's soon time to get in a very merry mood! On Monday December 14 at 1pm UTC, The Space Rig will be dressed up, presents are to be found in the caves, and The Yearly Performance Bonus assignment will be available to all. And just because Management really likes you the generous rewards includes two Xmas flavored head wear. On top of this, you all get to claim a fancy Yuletide Sock to put on your head.

  • Attempt to fix issues with Holiday assignment sometimes resetting when restarting the game
  • A small fix to fix assignments not completing correctly after the other fix
