V0.46b – hotfix

Hey everyone,

 

Here’s a small hotfix for a couple issues in today’s patch release.

 

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

 

 

  • Added option to use legacy controller system to game options menu (free move cursor)
  • Fixed some items being impossible to select in inventory with new snap controller system in old saves
  • Fixed bone & arrow baskets inverted in book
  • Player now returns to their original position when exiting chair/bench – should fix issue of players stuck in chairs built too close to tables

V0.46 – Animal skinning, improved controller support, Co-op passenger plane seats, bug fixes and lots more

Hey Everyone,

 

For this patch we’ve added a new skin animal animation. Now instead of the skin magically popping off, you’ll see the player cutting and then retrieving either skin or meat depending on the animal type.

 

For co-op players, you’ll now start the plane crash in your own seat. Host will see the same cutscene as in single player, however client players will be able to see this from a different angle.

 

We’ve tried to balance gaining weight too fast by adding a calorie burning stat to the eating system. Regular exercise, including carrying logs around will increase the amount of calories you burn per day.

 

For players using controllers, we’ve tried to make navigating the inventory and book easier. Using a snap system, you can flick across to choose either a weapon or book button, versus having to manually guide the pointer.

 

Additionally we’ve fixed a bunch of bugs, set enemies to drown if underwater for too long, added new table and chair buildable items. We’ve also added water running over terrain when raining sounds, improved some a.i. performance and some navmesh issues as well as improved the look of some plants and lots more all listed at:

V0.45 – Armor mannequin, improved animal navigation, carryable dried meat, new story pickups, bug fixes and more

Hey Everyone,

 

This patch adds a new armor mannequin, making it possible to store different armor types for retrieval later. We also added a new alternate log and rock holder which can be toggled by hitting the R key, these store double the amount of each item.

 

Dried meat can now either be eaten directly off drying rack by holding the eat key, or taken into inventory by tapping the key. This allows you to carry dried meat with you and eat it when you like.

 

We worked on improving animal a.i. navigation, so deer should hopefully not run through rocks anymore. We also fixed some enemy navigation issues that should reduce cases of enemies running against walls and rocks endlessly.

 

Almost every item you can hold in your right hand can now be used as a weapon! So if you want to hit someone with raw meat you now can. We also added a tiny amount of damage to thrown rocks, so if you want to throw them at each other in coop games you’ll now do a point or so of damage.

 

We did a bunch of improvements to controller usage especially in menus, making it much easier to select options, start games and more using just a controller.

 

Climbing axe can now be used on outside world cliffs again! There are a couple new bits of art added, including new gore models for caves, new mud models for after it rains and new mud on arm textures which should look more realistic. Items should no longer fly up into the sky when player approaches them!  Some new story items and pickups have been added, along with this we also fixed a ton of bugs and more all listed at:

V0.44 – AI improvements, memory reductions, building improvements, skin holding racks, bug fixes and more

Hey Everyone,

 

For this patch we’ve done a bunch of a.i. and pathfinding improvements. Enemies will now attempt to climb structures you build, and if inside a structure, break down through the ceiling to get to you. The new pathfinding improvements also fix a bunch of issues with enemies having troubles on certain floors of custom buildings and on certain structures- along with this we’ve managed to lower memory by a few hundred megabytes for the a.i. which should result in less instances of the game crashing especially on lower memory pc’s

 

For building, we’ve re-worked how anchor connections work, they should now be much easier to attach and should act more consistently. We also added the option to choose if you want elevated structures to include a rope or not — this enables you to build bridges between tree houses and opens up a lot of possibilities for more complex tree structures. There’s also a new connected rope model, so ropes no longer just float in the air in front of structures. Building autofill feature has also had several improvements to simplify its use – it will now memorize the last setting used and prevent blocking placement when building on terrain in wrong mode.

 

We also added ability for players to remove all upgrades from a weapon, as we found people could get stuck with a bunch of upgrades they didn’t want. We found and fixed a save game issue that could wipe save games both locally and on the cloud, added a new skin rack building type that allows you to store lizard, deer and rabbit skins. Added some new audio, fixed a bunch of multiplayer and single player bugs and more, the full list of changes can be viewed at:
