Patch 0.216.9

This patch includes a lot of optimisations for many underlying systems of the game – this to improve in-game performance for both small and large worlds, network performance, load times and to drastically decrease save file sizes. We hope that these changes will be a significant improvement for some of you!

You’ll also find the midsummer items enabled again, so place down a maypole and go dancing!
