Stationeers: Latest Update Includes Hem Droid Improvements

April 6 Update
April 6 Update Steam

Did you purchase the H.E.M. Droids Species Pack for Stationeers? If so, you have to download the latest update because it includes plenty of quality-of-life improvements, specifically for those who have the said DLC.

The Hem Droid now has a dedicated Sleeper in the latest patch for Stationeers. This device keeps the Hem Droids’ batteries charged, so long as it has enough power to do so.

For repairs, the new HEM-Droid Repair Kit is for you. This thing functions similarly to the heal pill but made especially for HEM Droids.

The Disposable Battery Charger is a new consumable in Stationeers that is great for emergency situations. Unlike the previous items mentioned which can only be used by HEM Droids, the Disposable Battery Charger can also be utilized by other species to keep their suits powered up.

Improved Performance

The developers implemented performance improvements as well, which are quite evident if you have a massive and complex base. For one, the server tick rate for bases with plenty of chutes and chute devices is improved.

Moreover, optimizations are made in other areas, including the Satellite Dish scanning logic, Trading Motherboard Computer Screen interface, and decay tick, among others. These improvements should make the game feel smoother and more responsive, so it’s best to update to the latest version asap.
