U37-483944 is an update for Oxygen Not Included released on October 28, 2021. Official Release Notes

Update Information[]


Hello everyone!

Today we have an adventurous new update for Oxygen Not Included: Spaced Out!

The Rad New Worlds update is focused on adding several new starting world options, making research more accessible, and filling some gaps in the radiation and nuclear gameplay. We've also been focused on fixing bugs and finding opportunities to polish the game. More on that point below...

New Worlds[]

Radiation and Nuclear[]

The Radiation Lamp emits a constant and predictable cone of radiation as it consumes the uranium ore supplied to it.

The second building is the Manual Radbolt Generator, which produces a small but reliable amount of Radbolts with no electrical power required. Now, a little Uranium Ore and some Duplicant labour are all that is needed to get your Materials Science Research operation underway.

Additionally, we've greatly reduced the rate at which Radbolts decay while traveling. It is now possible to send Radbolts a significantly further distance than before.

Research Changes[]


The team is very grateful for all the testing, feedback, and commentary the community has given us so far. Please keep it up! We appreciate any help in getting Spaced Out! to full release - and beyond!Full patch notes below. Please continue to report bugs here.
