Dear Drone Engineers,

We just released a preview version of our next big update on the preview branch.
So report all bugs you find and tell us what you like and what you don't like about the new features!


To give us feedback, talk with the developers or show off cool drones, please join our Discord Server :)

Please note:
This update resets the save files, however your drones should be safe. We extract them from your old save files and place them into the global drone list.
