One of the main focus of the 1.3 update was enhancing the Career experience, and this patch hopefully will be one of the most significant steps.

In previous patches we added the Rescue Missions and made acquiring crew more expensive, but there was still no benefit to having crew. In this patch we are adding Crew Bonuses, which will give optional rewards if a mission is completed with crew on board. In the stock career this will take the form of TP rewards in many contracts, including the Droo races, so those with astrophobia can have an additional source of TP without leaving the home planet.

The progress of space contracts was really steep, you went to orbit and in a blink you had to go visit other planets. In this patch we are introducing an intermediate step by splitting the contracts requiring you to go to the moons of Droo into their own and adding payloads that will require you to orbit and land on Brigo, Luna and T.T.. On top of that there is now a Grand Tour mission that will be available after unlocking the Luna Launchpad.

Lately we have been overhauling a lot of things in the game, but something got left behind... The stock crafts! What a sin! To remedy this we have asked for help to some of the best builders in our community to not only update the stock crafts you already know and love, but add 9 more new crafts, from boats to walking robots. Here is a list of the new crafts, and those that got made from scratch:

You can find all changes in the Release Notes

And yes, this one is coming out to mobile! For those of you that are in the beta branches of the Complete Edition you can expect 1.3 to reach your devices in the coming days as it rolls out.

Edit: iOS users may have to wait a bit longer as we investigate a change in the AppStore rules in the European Union

    @lflz I agree, balloons would be so rad, especially even splashing down a capsule, or even inflatable modules for stations but that might be asking a lot

    Will hydrogen balloons appear in the future? I think we can improve the operation and animation of the parachute by adding a fuel tank and simply giving a negative mass multiplied by air density to simulate buoyancy in the air. Each deployment requires the consumption of liquid hydrogen. I hope to use balloons to create real airships, achieving more weight saving and realistic splashes, and even the landing of real Spirit MER-A and Opportunity MER-B.
