Dev Notes[]

Hey everyone, This patch adds hotkey item selection. You can now place your backpack onto the crafting mat, and assign weapons or items to one of four slots outside of backpack which can be used for quick selection. For multiplayer, we improved chat visibility, and added 3 new vest and 3 new hoodie clothing variations We added a new late game cannibal type, these are more powerful than the regular cannibals and wear masks made from skin of plane passengers. We also added more cannibals to the villages around the world, and added a new check box for creative mode which will allow you to turn on/off enemies whenever you want. Along with this we fixed a bunch of bugs, especially with regards to how traps work, Added in a new bone arrow type, Improved some animations for multiplayer characters, made items in inventory easier to select by improving their collision and lots more.

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