    • Refinery block has been added to tech tree
    • Significantly increased lifetime of all fuels
    • ALM is now available in 3D Printer for crafting

    - Introducing extended BuildVision - you can now see the progress of printers, container space, energy distribution and much more just by looking at those blocks

    (may need further balancing, let us know how you feel about current consumption rates)
