Start new game is not working anymore

Start a brand new game – select begin at the Early Access Warning – end the intro – walk outside the truck in front of the elevator and save the game – load the saved game – press escape and Exit to Menu without saving again. Start a brand new game – select begin at the Early Access Warning – the last loaded game will start!! This happens until you restart the whole game. Penkura Midway Branch 0.2.0 MW 9.22

Development Comment:
Thank you for the report. Looking into this.
Problem fixed, it will be available in Midway 9.23.

Stuck in story dialogue This storyline dialogue does not appear to progress any further, and I cannot leave it by pressing esc, F, or any number keys (I tried 1 2 3 4 and so on in case of hidden dialogue options). It is not possible to save in this circumstance so I cannot see if saving and loading would fix it, and will have to resume from an earlier point instead.

Development Comment:
Thank you for the report.
Fixed, the patch should be available on Midway in about 20 minutes. 

Stuck inside a rock

In the starting area near the crashed robot I saw some rocks that looked like I could climb them, but when I jumped on one I fell through it and cannot get out.

Development Comment:
Thank you for the report, I tested out the location, and it seems to be already fixed on the Midway Branch. Just in case I will double-check collisions of other rock formations to make sure they don’t have any holes in their collisions. I will also add untuck function in the near future to mitigate the problem in case it will appear again.  I’m providing a link on how to access the Midway Branch if you want to test out that version (your save files should work without any problems there, so there is no need of starting from scratch).
Once again thank you for the report.

Fixing position is diplayed and you where set to the temple

Start afresh game – take the elevator down – the door is open – at the left there is the control panel from the elevator – press c to “crouch” and go into the corner from the control panel – look up and press F – you will be teleported to the temple with the message “fixing position ……” Penkura Midway Branch 0.2.0 MW 8

Thank you for the report, I have to admit that is one of the coolest bugs found in Penkura, that lead to fixing other things. Fix will be available in MW 9.

Negative inventory weight and negative item stack count

Hello, I think it happened while transferring an item from crafting table into my inventory. Next time I opened MMS storage, it showed there is 65x solid construction – but I didn’t build that. When I tried to move it to my inventory, I received x-65 solid construction. I realized that the inventory in MMS was vastly overcrowded (1660/500) and I realized that if I drop its storage below maximum and then move negative items back – it fixes its storage, but my own remained messed up. I managed to mess up CATS inventory same way, and repair it same way. The only way to fix my own inventory was to kill myself.

Development Comment:
Thank you for the report, I need to double-check if the same error appears in Midway, as inventory was drastically changed in Midway.

After long experimentation, I was unable to duplicate the error. Just in case I wrote a small security system into all systems that are connected to Storage/Inventory, to clean it from any possible errors of this nature. The fix will appear in Midway Brach 0.2.0 MW 9. Once again thank you for the report. 


Metos Warrior Body disappears and can block the game

I am somewhere between Epsylon Base and Archiological Research Base and i am killing some NPC’s. If i kill an Metos Warrior then the death body disappears after a few seconds. When i am in the inventory from this Metos Warrior Body and it disappears then i can not close the inventory window. I found no way – kill the game and start again.

Blue-Repo activate and deactivate

My Blue-Repo at my starter base is activated – go to the satelite communication base – deactivate there the Blue-Repo. Go back to your starter base and look into the Blue-Repo – it is also deactivated. Penkura Midway Branch 0.2.0 MW 6.2

Development Comment:
Thank you for the report. Found the problem, I’m in the process of fixing it.
Repairing the problem required rewriting a major part of the Blueprint Repository, but now it should run faster, be more user-friendly, and most of all fixed of all the known issues. Fix will be available in 0.2.0 MW 9.3.

The M.M.C battery goes low

When i craft some items through the m.m.c the energy goes low and i don’t know how to refill energy. The only way i found was to close the game and restart it, missed i something on how refill energy on the m.m.c ?

Development Comment:
M.M.C just like C.C.C both uses energy from the same source, which is the main base power source. You charge that energy with Solar Panels or Magnetic Wind Turbines. They do refill as fast or as slowly as your base power production.

I did some testing, and restarting the game is not refilling energy at M.M.C (checked with a few of the testers to make sure I’m not the only one not seeing this problem), base most likely manages to produce some of that energy back. In case you will still have a problem with your game, always feel free to contact me at:

Discord LINK:>
or directly by email LINK:>

To minimize confusion in the future, I will update the UI to tell players directly that it’s BASE energy just like it’s a BASE hydrogel.
