Weekly Satisfactory Updates – March 29, 2019

Mar 29 Masonzero  

Satisfactory has been available to the public for a week and a half now, so people have really had a chance to dive into it. It also has been updated slightly already, which is to be expected since the game is in early access. In this post, we’ll round up some of the biggest things that happened in Satisfactory this week.

Hotfix 1

March 28th saw update v0.101, which is a small patch. This update takes care of some of the big crash issues, including some that were appearing in multiplayer games. It also fixed an issue where saves created offline were not joinable by other players later. Lastly, it toned down fog at certain times of day. We can expect to see more fixes next week that patch some other issues.

User-Made Resource Map

Reddit user u/Tifyron has been hard at work mapping all of the resource deposits in Satisfactory. This includes minable resources as well as power slugs and other items. This is an impressive feat, but is really helpful if you want to have a more streamlined playthrough. It might be more fun to discover everything yourself, but at least you’ll have this to fall back on. To see a full-res version, check out the original post.

More Large Content Creators Join the Fun!

In our highlight of Satisfactory video series to watch, we noted the potential impact of JackSepticEye, one of the larger gaming YouTubers out there, playing Satisfactory on his channel. He has continued his series, but other YouTubers have joined the factory-building fun.

Markiplier, with 23 million YouTube subscribers, has been playing the game with other streamers on Twitch. Go to about an hour and a half through the Twitch Video below to see him discover and play the game for about 4 hours. His love for the game is pretty clear, and it’s great to see a big gaming content creator enjoying it. He has now started uploading Satisfactory videos to YouTube!

Satisfactory’s React-To Video

It appears Satisfactory is engaging directly with the community and is creating a video reacting to “cool, funny, and awesome inspiring clips”. They called for players to upload these clips to YouTube so they could edit together a reaction video. There’s no sign of when this will be out, but it should be pretty cool when it drops!

Jace Was Interviewed by Epic Games

Satisfactory is build on the Unreal Engine, and Epic Games interviewed Jace Varlet for the Unreal site. Jace is a well-loved developer and community manager for the game. He answers questions about the game’s development and some of the unique aspects of it. We won’t spoil it here, so go read it yourself.

That’s all for this week! Check back next week for more Satisfactory updates!
