    - Changed rounding of displayed cargo pods lost, actual item loss is unaffected.
    - Spaceships structure stress is influenced by container slot capacity. Each slot is 0.5 stress but this is not added to the existing stress, the higher value is used.

If you have a spaceship filled with chests it is recommended that you land the spaceship before updating.
    - Added recipe to pack and unpack stacks of cargo rocket sections so they are easier to deliver to other planets via rocket.
    - Increased RTG 1 power output.
    - Renamed fluid burner generator to fluid isothermic generator as it is designed to burn rocket fuel to power spaceships and shouldn't sound like a simple burner entity.

Version: 0.1.54
  Bugfixes:
    - Fixed that a debug print line was left in a released version.

Version: 0.1.50
  Changes:
    - When a cargo rocket silo is deconstructed items are generated for the space capsule and rocket sections that were consumed. Rocket fuel is still lost, but can be pumped out first.

Version: 0.1.42
  Features:
    - Added Antimatter Reactors. Antimatter can be manufactured where there is abundant energy (like a star), and used to power somewhere energy poor (like deep space).
    - Added Fluid Burner Generators. Can burn fluid with an energy value to generate electricity. Simple and compact but lacks the energy efficiency of steam setups. Allows spaceships to burn rocket fuel for power.

  Changes:
    - Renamed supercomputer MK2 and MK3 to Quantum supercomputer and Neural supercomputer.

Version: 0.1.38
  Changes:
    - Changed planet core mining to use a different method that does not require continuous updates via script. They are now like electric mining drills and output in the same way. You may need to remove inserters and add belts to collect the fragments.
              

Version: 0.1.37
  Bugfixes:
    - Fixed meteor point defence being unplaceable in space.

    - Added custom meteor event sound.
    - Added a custom alert for meteors so it does not make the annoying sound that happens when something gets printed to the console.
    - Added a per-player setting for meteor alerts to be printed to the console (so you can look back later to see stats, but you get the annoying noise), off by default.

  Changes:
    - Space science is now required on average 1 tech later in many tech lines.
    - Rocket silo research is now cheaper and faster.
    - Meteor defence installation accuracy reduced to 80%.
              

Version: 0.1.33
  Bugfixes:
    - Improved the on/off flicker of space science labs but it is still not perfect. The graphics still need to be redone to remove the flicker completely, but the graphics need to be updated anyway to remove the pipes.
    - Fixed that cargo pods couldn't be placed in space, and therefore would be destroyed by the game engine if the tile under them was changed while in space.
              

Version: 0.1.32

    - IMPORTANT: Compatibility patches and a few other things are being moved to a separate mod (space-exploration-postprocess). It is required, but I can't list it as a dependency. Please make sure you install it when updating (assuming you read changelogs).
    - Moved all graphics to a separate package (also required but I can list it as a dependency without causing a dependency loop). This is to allow people to download code updates without repeatedly downloading 200MB of images.

    - Added remote interface: get_zone_from_surface_index requires data.surface_index
    - Added remote interface: get_zone_from_zone_index requires data.zone_index note: this allows you to traverse the zone tree
              

Version: 0.1.26
  Bugfixes:
    - Fixes that the cargo rocket silo and landing pad got blocked from space by a collision change.
    - Fixes that sometimes Nauvis would get assigned a core fragment other than Omni.

Version: 0.1.25
  Bugfixes:
    - Fixed that meteors showers get stuck in pairs instead of the chances: 50% 1, 25% 2, 12.5% 3, 6.25% 4, etc...
