V0.39 – Multiplayer and Single Player bug fixing, balance, tweaks and more Posted on 23 May, 2016 by Anna

Hey Everyone,

For this patch we’ve focused on bug fixing and tweaks along with some small balance changes. We’ve fixed (hopefully) all cases of enemies being able to attack without actually playing an animation, fixed enemies sometimes applying double damage making the combat harder than it should be and fixed a bunch of small and big bugs with gardens, sharing tray, rain in caves, time not synced correctly for host/client, missing audio in multiplayer, 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
