Patch Notes: Early Access - v0.3.6.5 – Build 136408. This patch was released on November 10, 2020.

The original post can be viewed on Satisfactory's Discord, Reddit and Steam.


Hi Pioneers!

The Fluid Update is now out on Early Access. We’ve compiled all changes that are new to the Early Access version again in the patch notes, so you get a good overview if you haven’t been playing on Experimental.

In this update the new Packaging building is introduced, which takes over all packaging and unpackaging recipes from the Refinery (but no worries, your existing Refinery setups will still work).

We are also adding some serious upgrades for your Pipeline setups with the Pipeline Mk.2, Pipeline Pump Mk.2, and Valves that allow you to limit throughput of a Pipeline.

There are a bunch more additions, such as a new buildable Ladder unlockable in the AWESOME Shop, overhauled Jump Pads to make them much more useful, a new look for the Refinery, Serbian (Latin) as a language option, and several quality-of-life improvements. You can find all the details in the patch notes below.

This version should be largely stable (otherwise it would spend more time on Experimental), but if you do find any new bugs or have feedback for us on the added content, you can go to our QA Site at and let us know! We are super excited to push this update out to all of you. Hope you are all having a wonderful time and lots of fun with the game <3
