After the update of the game it´s working perfectly for me. Algae can be eaten, armour and weapons can be equipped.
When I´m in my pod I show the first two icons (material and equipment display).
When I hover the mouse pointer over e.g. the Quick Matter Knife the help text floats above it and display Quick Matter Knife in yellow.
When I single-left-click the Quick Matter Knife nothing happens at all.
When I click it a second time nothing happens at all.
Double-Clicking it - nothing.
I use the Noscript-Addon in my Firefox Browser (the ESR version for Windows 32bit), but I did allow scripts from alphacoders.com
I normally use the Adblock+ Addon but have disabled it on alphacoders.com
The same is true for all material - I can´t left-click algae so the character can´t eat / heal, can´t equip weapons or armour.
I have created Quick Matter legs, helmet and body and forged a quick matter knife and a cyber knife.
But I am unable to equip anything.
The tutorial describes very simple
that in the list of equipment I would have to left-click on the knife and then click on the body part where to equip it - but I can´t left-click, double-click or right-click anything in my equipment list...?
Edit: If that could be the cause, I am using the Firefox ESR version for 32bit Windows.
In my current game as Captain Kork I researched all 4 levels of Cyber Knife.
When I click the button to show resarch it lists:
"Cyberknife Completed 4/4, Territe Completed 3/5"
With the fourth level researched a new button appears next to the Cyberknife research "Show Discoveries" and when I click that it opens to "Discoveries from researching Cyber Knife:" and nothing listed...?
Is not the Hacking Knife a result of the Cyber Knife research and should be listed there?
In my first attempt to play Space Abyss I easily manufactured an Thiol Extractor with a skill of a few hundred of manufacturing, before abandoning the game because my pod had vanished...
In my current game I have already raised my manufacturing skill to 1000+ and still failed constantly to produce a Thiol Extractor - without which I can not produce "refined Therite" and are thus barred form manufacturing a shipyard and producing any better spaceship...
There was an area with 4 abandoned pods. Rightclicking I saw that I could take over a single one of them and did so one after the other to see if anything was still inside. A few had stuff that I could salvage and the additional stack came from the salvaging. After I had salvaged everything possible I took over my own pod again and continued with having several stacks of Nanobenders.
In the same game I am unable to create a forge using the manufacturer in my pod.
