The sound for the game has also been rebalanced to highlight certain sounds and make others fade into the distance. The default sound settings have also been updated to improve this mix. Optimizations Optimized particle logic. Improved performance when side-loading transport belts. Improved performance of inserters interacting with assembling machines and furnaces. Improved performance of inserters when the circuit network turns them off. Improved performance of mining drills and inserters in general. Improved performance of burner entities. Improved performance polluting entities. Improved performance of smoke producing entities. Improved performance logistic and construction robot performance when they're flying towards their target. Improved performance of furnaces and assembling machines that use fluids. Improved heat pipe performance by 3x. Improved item request proxy performance by turning them off in 99%+ of the cases. Improved locomotive, cargo wagon, and fluid wagon performance by turning them off in 99%+ of the cases. Electric networks, fluids, and heat pipes are updated in parallel if you have enough cores.

Changed construction robots and logistic robots sprites to be optional. Changed the loader prototype type so it has a fixed belt_distance of 0.5. Added the prototype type "loader-1x1" that has a fixed belt_distance of 0. Changed render layer of belt structures (underground belt, splitter, circuit connector) to object layer. They now have special sorting logic, so they are not rendered over player or cars. Horizontal directions of splitter sprites were separated to two sprites (for purposes of the special sorting logic). Added AttackParameters::ammo_categories. Added optional artillery projectile property "rotatable". Scenarios can now contain a description.json file. In the file "order" determines the sorting in the New Game gui; "multiplayer-compatible" determines weather the scenario is shown for multiplayer games. Added "multiplayer-compatible" to description.json file of campaigns also. Scripting Added on_unit_group_finished_gathering and on_build_base_arrived events. Added LuaRendering::bring_to_front(). Changed LuaGameScript::particle_prototypes to reference the optimized-particle type. Added LuaGuiElement::scroll_to_item() function. Renamed LuaInventory::hasbar(), getbar() and setbar() to supports_bar(), get_bar() and set_bar(). Added LuaEquipmentPrototype::attack_parameters read. Added on_script_trigger_effect event. Set lower limit of zoom parameter of LuaGameScript::take_screenshot to be 0.0315 (1 pixel per tile) instead of allowing any value greater than 0. Added LuaPlayer::get_infinity_inventory_filter(), set_infinity_inventory_filter() functions. Added LuaPlayer::remove_unfiltered_items, infinity_inventory_filters read/write. Added LuaSurface::get_entities_with_force(). Added optional "dealer" parameter to LuaEntity::damage(). Added "force" filters to the on_built_entity and on_robot_built_entity event filters. LuaSurface::min_brightness doesn't have any effect on rendering as brightness of night depends only on color LUT of night.
