V0.23B Hotfix

Hey everyone,

 

Here’s a small hotfix, fixing some of the issues that were reported overnight:

 

v0.23b

 

 

  • Fixed tutorials being off when underwater breaking picking up items underwater and causing their pickup or can’t carry anymore messages to stay on screen permanently
  • Fixed bug where most oyster spawners were placed too far below sea level and set to wrong terrain texture – making them extremely rare. Also fixed issue where they wouldn’t be visible, only the pickup icon in rare case they were found
  • (multiplayer)Fixed issue where clients couldn’t break wood planks open in some parts of caves
  • Fixed bug with arms and legs not spawning bones correctly when overcooked on fire
  • Added more protections against rare cases of axe not swinging (if anyone is still getting this, let us know the exact steps and we’ll make a fix)

 
As always, please continue to post your bug reports and feedback in the Discussions area of the Community Hub

v0.23 – Stick fences, rock walls (experimental), better fire, passive skills, gameplay balance, improved audio, oysters.

Hey Everyone,

 

We’ve added a bunch of gameplay tweaks and improvements this patch, including a first pass at passive skills that improve over time – run a lot and you’ll be able to run slightly further without running out of stamina, dive underwater a lot and your breath will last longer.

 

Two new building types have been added – a first pass at rock walls (although currently requires probably way too many rocks) and a new procedural stick fence!

 

More cave work has been done. For the overworld, a bunch of improvements including little paths, better ground textures and details. There’s also been a ton of new audio improvements/additions including the new ‘Player burning to death’ sounds.

 

We’ve also added oysters to the game, but so far no one on the team has been able to find them.

 

There are also more visual tweaks, multiplayer fixes, and lots more, check out the full list below.

 

Note! We’ve changed how molotovs work slightly. You now have to light the molotov by pressing L. However you can also throw unlit molotovs at enemies, dousing them in flammable liquid and increasing the damage further lit molotovs do to them! Let us know what you think of this and the other new changes and As always, please continue to post your bug reports and feedback in the Discussions area of the Community Hub

v0.22- Improved multiplayer, Better audio, smoother player movement, better visuals and more

Hey Everyone,

 

This patch cleans up a lot of the multiplayer combat, fighting enemies as a client character should now feel a lot smoother and react better.

 

Player movement has also been improved, as we found the positioning of the player camera was causing some additional stutter as the player moved.

 

Visually we’ve replaced our bloom (again) with a new faster better looking physical bloom, replaced tone mapping and camera adaptation, and added some new effects. This includes a pretty amazing looking depth of field that isn’t quite ready to be used yet (currently blurs player and weapon) but we’ve left the option in in case anyone wants to play around with it.

 

We’ve also fixed a bunch more bugs, added new audio, added a new moss/grass shader which allows moss to grow on rocks and cliffs, and added more animation to the opening plane sequence along with lots more all listed below.

 

As always, please continue to post your bug reports and feedback in the Discussions area of the Community Hub

v0.21b hotfix

Hey Everyone,

 

We found some users had issues moving (at all!) with the update released a couple hours ago. Here is a fix for anyone experiencing that.

 

 

  • Small fix for users with some peripheral configurations who were unable to move in tonight’s update

 

 

Let us know if this issue is still occurring for anyone and if so we’ll try an alternate fix

 

v0.21

Hey Everyone,

 

This patch has a ton of new sounds, gameplay tweaks, balance tweaks, a couple new buildings (procedural defensive walls, floor hole cutting!!), improved AI for the new cowman mutant, a bunch of multiplayer and single player bug fixes, some improved caves and lots more.

 

We’ve also changed how repairing works. Now you’ll actually need to replace some of the lost logs instead of being able to just use tree sap for more heavily damaged structures. Let us know what you think about this change, and if it makes things too hard, or is still too easy and should be pushed further (To avoid destruction all together, use the cheat mode by typing ‘ironforest’ in title screen.)

 

Note: To eat berries/food/ or drink at lakes, press and HOLD the action key.
