v0.32 – Lockable doors, Craftable quiver, Fur boots, Poison arrows, Improved multiplayer animations, Bug fixes and more Posted on 5 February, 2016 by Anna

Hey Everyone,

For this patch we’ve added two new craftable items, the quiver which will allow you to hold more arrows and the new rabbit fur boots that will keep you warmer and lower the amount of sound you make when moving.

Doors have had a major rework and should no longer vibrate violently when intersecting other objects. We also added door locks! These can be locked from the inside – To build a door with a lock, cycle through the wall types until the lock is facing the way you like. For custom buildings we’ve also improved the fire warmth system. Fire should now warm your entire custom home instead of just the small area around fire.

We’ve also improved the look of the multiplayer character spine rotation and added in some better crouch animations.

A new system has been added to improve look of weapons when pressed near surfaces. Instead of poking through collision, held weapons will now be animated away from surfaces when touching them.

For multiplayer, we’ve been working on making the client experience feel as close to single player as possible. This patch fixes a brief flash when clients chop down a tree, fixes some glitches when dropping bodies, stops clients seeing enemies slide around occasionally when they hit the ground, and also finally found and fixed an issue with the plane crash location which in some games could stop clients being able to join at all.

Along with this there are also a bunch of bug fixes and lots more all listed below.

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