Some quick notes for server admins with respect to patch 10.

First: we've seen people who have modified their levelstreaming ini after getting patch 10. We do not recommend (or support) modifying this ini on your own, but I thought I'd warn people to back up their save data if you are running a server with 3 continents hacked in.

Second: If you want to host your own server that has exoplanets and moons you should launch the "home" process with a new parameter which tells the game what "metaverse" to be part of.

That new parameter is:

planetmanagername

Here is an example usage:
CAGGameServer-Win32-Shipping cag_p?PlanetManagerName="FUNTOWN"?adminpassword=thisisnttherealpassword?steamsockets?Port=7777?PeerPort=7778?QueryPort=27015?MaxPlayers=32CloudDir="CloudAus01"?ServerName="My Cool home server" -seekfreeloadingserver

If a server has the planetmanagername parameter it will become the planet manager for that universe and automatically launch processes for exo planets and...

This is a bit off topic as we are a site on Grav but to throw out our support to BitMonster and their Award Winning Gunner Z now on Android. Check it out and tell us what you think! Remember this helps BitMonster as a whole and in a way has a small effect towards Grav down the road!

Fresh off the Twitter feed. A brand spanking new screenshot of one of Gravs Moons. So eerie and scary looking it looks marvels!

They also mention the development is going well but still under work. We had a toy around with the Statgates on our test server. We found that you can create them at at this time they spawn a new server called the Moon. But it will not actually load properly and just keep loading in a loop. But we know it's coming very soon we like their way of spawning new instances rather then trying to overload one server.
