Career Mode

  • Career Mode is now open! Although still very much under development, you can now start new Career saves.
  • Sandbox mode, of course, is also available from the start.

Research and Development

  • Added the Research & Development Facility to the Space Center.
  • R&D allows players to unlock parts (and later other stuff) by researching nodes on the Tech Tree (In Career Mode).

Science

  • Researching requires Science, which must be earned by performing experiments during your missions.
  • You can now collect surface samples while on EVA, and process them to do Science.
  • Science experiments return results, which are different for each situation in which the experiment is performed.
  • Experiments can (as all proper experiments must) be repeated over many different situations across the whole Solar System.
  • Added a new dialog to show the results of experiments when reviewing the collected data.
  • Added a new dialog to show a breakdown of all scientific progress made after recovering a mission.
