Oxygen Not Included 'Hot Shots' update out with a new animated short

By - | Views: 20,820

Klei continuing to do great work here to expand the excellent Oxygen Not Included, along with a fancy new animated short that I always enjoy from them. This update is for both the base game and the Spaced Out expansion.

This update adds in new buildings and rooms including a Conduction Panel that exchanges heat with buildings that it overlaps with, Mission Control Station broadcasts guidance data that ramps up a rocket’s speed during flight, Geotuner to get a little extra juice from a geyser and your Duplicants gain a morale boost when given a private bedroom.

Also added is a new story trait with Mysterious Hermit that they said "The Mysterious Hermit is the star of our latest story trait. Convince him to join your colony (and let you repurpose his old haunt) by completing some tasks, like delivering tasty, tasty food to his curious domicile.".

Here's their wonderful new animated short:

I dunno about these "animated shorts". I'd never wear them.

for some reason ONI has really good desktop support but not DST... in DST you are literally forced to use the gamepad with no exceptions.
