As the Title says, I cannot launch a new game.
The capsule departs the ship, flies for a bit, engages the thrusters, and then I'm presented with the Select Planet orbital mechanics screen, instead of landing or in close with a planet to pick a landing zone.
On the other hand, no problems at all loading an existing game from before the latest patch.
I'll be doing a full re-install later this week to see if the problem sticks around. (need to do a lot of maintenance on games anyway)
Oh, right, I'm playing the STEAM version of the game, on PC.
