V048 – Custom wall angle snapping, Improved multiplayer combat, New large raft, bug fixing and lots more Posted on 20 October, 2016 by Anna

Hey Everyone,

For this patch we’ve fixed a lot of animation timings in multiplayer, which should make combat and a.i. reactions a lot more consistent between host and client. Previously there were delays between animation states, now the timings and transitions are much closer to what you see in singleplayer, which should result in enemies and other players looking smoother and generally more responsive.

We also fixed a bunch of the more visible multiplayer bugs, such as players spawning in the wrong pose on the plane or still seeing other players walking around in the wrong perspective in the dead screen. We also fixed trees cut down far away from clients causing sync issues and fixed weapon upgrades not always visible to other players.

We added a large raft model to the survival book. This larger boat has two rowing sections, designed to work in coop with multiple players where players will have to co-ordinate well to keep the boat moving fast and straight

For building systems, we’ve added a corner snap to walls, fences, stairs and foundations. When selecting the position of a second wall piece, you’ll notice a subtle stickiness when the wall is within 45 degree angle of the previously placed wall part. You can now also snap ghost walls to previously constructed wall sections.

We’ve improved how storage works for the drying rack, you can now add items without having to take each out of the inventory manually, and can switch which item is added by pressing the cycle item button. If you like to manually take items out however and place them, this will still work as the default item will be what you currently have in your hand. We’ve transferred this system to the fire cooking system also.

Along with this we’ve improved the look of some plants, further improved enemy a.i pathfinding, fixed a bunch of bugs 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

Additions / Changes / Fixes[]

  • (Building) Fixed aiming back and forth between fences and floors breaking wall & fences placement in autofill mode
