Satisfactory’s Update 5, which emerged on the experimental branch in the sandbox game last month, is now out in the live game. This update adds brand new tools for creating custom signage for your worlds, as well as spiffy new tools for customising your factories’ visual appearance.
There are now 10 different signs you can place anywhere in the world, using poles with adjustable heights. As you can see in the trailer below, these can be super handy for providing directions for vehicles or along footpaths. You can use a wide range of colours, fonts, backgrounds, and icons on your signs, so you should have no problem getting your message across.
In the teaser trailer for Update 5 last month, the centrepiece was a spectacular train collision. However, disasters should be less frequent thanks to the addition of new ‘block’ and ‘path’ signals you can use on train tracks. Block signals designate sections of track that can only be occupied by a single train at a time, while path signals map out designated routes through your transit system.
