v0.13: Cuttable corpses! Weapon rack storage, Snack storage, improved multiplayer performance and much more Posted on 10 February, 2015 by Anna

Hey Everyone,

This patch gives players the ability to chop up bodies into individual parts – no more bodies exploding when you hit them!

We’ve also done a major pass at multiplayer optimization. Enemies should be less jittery for clients and both clients and servers should have a much smoother experience. Our microphone system has been revamped to use almost no cpu and also not cause those annoying memory stutters every few seconds.

New buildable items have been added to the survival book: a weapon rack, snack cupboard, bomb holder and medicine holder. In single player you can store your items at your base. In multiplayer you can use these holders to trade items with other players.

Caves this month have seen a lot of work, and Dead Cave in particular has seen a major overhaul. More interesting areas to explore, more items to find.

Finally, we’ve added a first pass at procedural floors. Along with procedural walls, and foundations these will eventually provide the building blocks to allow you to build any type of structure you want. Next patch will finally include custom ceilings!

There’s also a lot more added, all listed below.

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

Old save games should continue to work, however if you notice anything strange (stranger than normal!) start a fresh game to make sure you are fully up to date.
