Bethesda today pushed out another post-launch update to its latest release Starfield. The 1.7.33 update to the sci-fi RPG carries performance and stability upgrades, while also fixing a handful of bugs.

One of the bugs squashed in this update is the missing sun issue on AMD Radeon graphics cards on PC. Reported by players since launch, the game has not been rendering suns correctly while exploring planet surfaces. This should now be resolved with today's update.

One of the more popular bugs among the community has been accessing a certain vendor's inventory via a water puddle for easy money. This has also been patched up.

Here's the full list of fixes:
