Silica’s New Hotfix Addresses Harvester Issue and More

The latest hotfix update for Silica is out now, addressing several reported issues with the Harvester and providing various quality-of-life improvements and performance fixes.

This update addresses numerous issues. Players had previously been unable to select a team when Strategy mode restarted and were forced to rejoin the game. This issue and the automatic deselection of units have been resolved when clicking on the minimap.

Additionally, a fix has been applied to the issue where the player unit icon would persist even after the player had entered a vehicle. Now, the icon is appropriately removed. The issue of the Harvester not stopping when the ramp was opening has also been addressed.
