Dev Notes[]

Hey Everyone,

For this patch we added a first pass of achievements, this includes 45 so far. These should all be unlockable currently in single player, however a couple may not be fully activated in multiplayer games just yet.

The camcorder introduced last patch now has 6 VHS tapes you can find in the world. These tapes can be watched to learn more about what might have happened before you crash landed

The crane building now has a new rope added to its base. You can use this rope to bring the platform either up or down.  The new machete can now be upgraded like other weapons, and has also been balanced to be more powerful against small bushes, and can even chop down trees, although it’s not the best tool for that job

There were a couple big bugs since v0.63 that have been fixed, these include numerous issues with the logsleds, issues with spears vanishing and thirst and hunger texts getting stuck on screen.

Localization has been improved for German, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Korean, Chinese and Japanese.  We also added language support for Czech, Italian, Polish, Finnish, Swedish and Turkish

Along with this we added some new audio, fixed some settings in ds games not working correctly such as enemies on/off, trees regrowing and building destruction, and fixed a bunch of small and large bugs, for the full list visit.

If you are running a dedicated server, you will need to restart your server with the latest version to be compatible with this patch release.

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