@SES_joe

I don't see the update. When I load the game (xbox one) the info tab says groundwork update is live, but I can't download it. Am I doing something wrong? Or has the update not hit the xbox store yet?

The update broke the chemistry lab, it no longer stores the composite resources created on adjacent slots, instead it just drops them inside of it.

Thank you
