Developers of the space construction and management sim Stationeers have improved the game’s multiplayer thanks to Steam P2P. Read further to learn more.

Steam P2P Re-enabled

For those who didn’t know, the Stationeers dev team disabled Steam P2P back when they made low-level changes during the multiplayer refactor.

While it was possible for you to play the game with your friends online prior to Update 0.2.3888.18748, you had to manually forward ports or enable UPnP on your router just so you can host a server.

Now that everything is in place, the team finally re-enabled Steam P2P in the latest patch. This means that you no longer have to do those things as all tunneling is handled by Valve’s networking feature.

Improved Plant Analyzer

The team also improved the plant analyzer cartridge in this update. For instance, the text that indicates whether a plant is deficient in light/darkness is now shown in red. This is to let you know that something has to be done or else plant growth will be stifled due to illumination stress.
