Version 0.72 was a major update released January 18, 2018.

Dev Notes[]

Hey Everyone,

For this patch we focused on bug fixing and polish, as well as adding in a couple long requested tweaks (the log sled can now carry a full 12 logs!)

In addition to over 100 bug fixes, we added an audio slider in options to tweak the volume of the walky talky, improved accuracy of building placement by using camera position to allow fine tuning of positions, improved the look of a bunch of buildings that were still using old logs, and added new cargo pant player variations in multiplayer.

It’s been a long journey since our first v0.01 release on Steam. In the next few weeks we will be announcing our plan for moving the game out of early access into a v1.0 release including some hints as to some of the new features you can expect! Stay tuned.

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.
