Hab airlock cycle delay removed?

Mr. Fusion 2 years ago updated by Tyler Owen (Lead Developer) 2 years ago 1

I don't know if this is an intended change, but it seems that currently entering/exiting a habitat (going through the airlock cycle) effectively doesn't take any in game time at all, while previously exiting took about 40 minutes and entering about 20, if I recall correctly.

I believe that this change was made quite a while back. Previously the in-game time required to enter or exit an airlock was relative to how fast your computer was able to load the new area. Obviously this was not a good thing for those that had slower load times. I could add a set amount of time required to enter or exit, but it didn't really feel necessary. I feel like it would be especially annoying to get back to the habitat just as you are dying from lack of oxygen only to die during the loading screen because the airlock requires actual time to transition.
