Alpha 5 Hotfixes



  • Well for me it's a matter of fixing the severe simulation madness that goes causing massive population drops in just hours after the server is running. With that it can achieve a decent balance to keep stuff rolling!

    Carts Teleport if you take them underground to above ground that's really annoying.

    carts could always be teleport along with the player if used mine axe and hit the roof of the cave and dropped something on top of your head. it push u or mine cart through floor to the surface.

    Just a quick gameplay feedback. the skillpoint grind kinda sucks. I'm at a point in the game where I don't have much to do I'm just waiting to get more skill points to play the game. I would rather have the game require more gameplay to unlock the books and crafting tables then waiting on skill points to buy skill. alpha 5 seems to have made this problem quite a bit worse I actually think alpha 4 was a funner build. I'm giving this feedback because I really want this game to be successful but I feel that some changes to the skill trees and complexities to the new farming system are hurting the game more than they are helping. once again I don't mean this feedback to be taken negative I hope it help direct the games direction is a more enjoyable place.<

    it be nice if skill points where awards out for playing the game instead of just handed out by time period, I log in play little log off wait couple days then come back to play. knowing my guy auto leveled up on his own with out help from me.

    it seems weird game rewards you for doing nothing..

    i end up spending a lot of time doing nothing its more of big deal late game. because honestly I would earn these points faster if I could earn them by playing game then by current system and it probably be more fun to play then.

    current system also negatively effects game play for new players because they will never be able to catch up with older players making servers that are up and running something for new players to stay away from.

    it hurts balance of game with way it is now for new people to join they will never be able to catch up to help the older players with anything useful. - I have run server and where we have had established high level players and new people just are not interested when they come in due to that period.

    the skill leveling system is something that really should be changed.

    on my server with my friends what we do is I change the time rate at which skill points are earned early game we get them at .4 percent as fast then late game i change rate to 3 times as fast.



  • @midn8t I feel with the real life time on the meteor (30 RL days by default) that we NEED offline skill point gains. Some folks have jobs, families, responsibilities, ect that will keep them away from the computer for a day or more at times. Also during 'down time' while i'm waiting for more skill points to 'progress' this is when i build new roads to different resources/ build new buildings for future projects. Just my thoughts :D

    well most servers play with the meteor turned off it seems..
    the only reason meteor is there is to end the game also you can in cress it no one says it has to be 30 days.

    but I do not play with meteor so I think its lame honestly no one wants to build a sand castle just have it nocked over

    I honestly think only reason it is there is to give people way to reset server after certain amount of play time.

    but there also ways to fix you issue, no one said how much time it requires to gain said skill points, just like with the skill points earn by doing nothing you can control the amount of skill points and time for metor.

    default for metor would have to be increased if they did it other way and possible time it takes to earn skill points by actions can is variable that should be option that is change able.

    just like amount of skill points per house you get is change able in the server settings right now.

    but form my prospect I am never going to play this game online with on a server that does not control amount of skill points players get and that does not control metor.

    me at the start we change time so that it skill points are earned at 40% speed as normal then latter on we up it to about 200%

    we also ether turn off metor or we set time period for 160 days.



  • @midn8t "Work together through the player-run government and economy to build the technology to stop a meteor on a collision course with the planet, without polluting the world and killing it off in the process before that even happens." Copied from the main page description. The meteor is the whole point of the game tho, play how you want, but the meteor is a huge part of the game and needs to be balanced around.

    that is my point though, any system can work they just need work it around the balance with the metor..

    anther system they could use with the earn skill point system is they could setup schools and the education books in school could provide skill points.. for people who fall behind or they could do something like this.

    If one person is really good at farming they could teach or show someone else how to be that good.

    anything i think is better then the waiting game we play now which is not really that much fun honestly.



  • Hey guys, keep the feedback coming its all very useful.

    We want to allow for more scenarios or changing up the game rules, you can do a lot of this already with some knowledge of the code so I expect once we spend time documenting this you'll be able to mod the game with any small tweaks you want, eg learning skills differently or whatever.

    A new hotfix is coming very shortly for the client, its being uploaded as I type this.



  • Great to here are we going to get a change log for the client?



  • Updated with latest client hotfix info.

    Please keep posting any egregious issues and we will continue the hotfixing party.



  • Glad the minimap's back, but names of people and benches on it seem to write out one character a line, and the filter's box doesn't match up to the side (some of the text is floating on the border line as well.)



  • Here is our first bug with new client it's linda cool looking but char texturesChar.png are not loading in.



  • that's pretty awesome, not gonna lie



  • yeah it's really cool looking but probably not intended ;)



  • Graphic of what trainmon is describing.
    upload-9e29382e-8c83-41c9-8388-86ec870196ec



  • @Trainmon Noticed this as well, will fix in next hotfix (likely tomorrow)



  • Came across a bug that either disconnects me from the server or crashes my game when attempting to place the kiln. It states "caught exception: duplicate components are not supported" or simply crashes the game completely. I apologize if this has already been brought to your attention.



  • @Kane-Markoff Do you have the hotfixed server? The update we pushed last friday should have fixed that.



  • I just put down a town hall, and it instantly kicked me out of the server, now every time I try to log in, it loads me in, but instantly kicks me out with no info after I'm in for barely an instant.
