0.98.0

It’s the best update ever. It adds and tweaks a lot of things that together change the game experience a bit. It’s a good time to try starting a new game if you were thinking about it.

BIG FEATURES

  • BLOOMIN’ ROBOT LIMBS!
    • when a limb goes below -100 damage, that limb gets amputated
    • lost legs means you have to crawl on the floor
    • Legs damaged past your KO point also makes you crawl on the floor, until they are bandaged.
    • robot limbs can be added or removed at a Skeleton Bed
    • robot limbs will affect your stats in various ways
    • If you are crawling around on the floor you can still fight really badly as long as you have at least 1 arm.
    • Your amputated limb goes flying through the air. Dogs will run off with it.
    • If your pet dog finds a limb he’ll get all defensive and keep running away with it until he finally eats it. Only happens with young dogs, so don’t worry he will grow out of it eventually.
    • Limb loss can be reduced or disabled in the options

 

  • FLIPPIN’ CROSSBOWS!
    • Crossbow shops dotted around the world
    • You need ammo too
    • Crossbows and ammo can be crafted in your base

 

  • BLOOD!
    • Blooooood!
    • Blood gets sprayed on the ground
    • People get covered in blood
    • Blood pools grow around people who are bleeding out
    • Crawling and bleeding people leave a bloody slug trail behind them. So fun.
    • 18 new beards and 17 new hairs added to the game. Credit goes to Arkhiel for generously donating them.
    • New hand-painted inventory item icons. Credit goes to Diogo Santos for making them.
    • Some roaming bandit squads will assault your base and attempt to capture it. If they win they will throw you out and live there themselves, use your stuff, eat all your food. You will have to remove them by force to get your base back.
    • HOLD button replaces the PASSIVE button. This puts characters into “hold position” mode. Stops your characters running off to fight, but now they still fight anything that comes in range. You can use this to position melee guys tactically, to protect your bow units for example, or guard a doorway. Also still serves its original purpose of keeping your weak workers away from combat.

 

  • FEATURES
    • When playing dead, you can switch to stealth mode and crawl around on the ground giving your buddies first aid or trying to escape without getting noticed
    • The travel shops now sell tent blueprints. These can protect you from acid rain when you are camping.
    • Slavers and Traders guilds have near 0 relations multiplier, so fighting them causes less relations loss but they assign bounties to you instead
    • Swearing filter is now removed from the game, but is still available in the options
    • Hivers now have proper face morphs for the character editor, they can have more variety now, go and give all your hivers plastic surgery cus they’re funny
    • When placing buildings, ramps can automatically change to the correct building for the snap target
    • Bandits now loot more food and take meat from downed animals, meaning they will eat your dog.
    • Idle characters now sit around on chairs in your home base. Looks nice, and is a handy way to keep track of who’s idle.
    • Using training equipment can now be set as a perma-job
    • Confirmation message added for when selling stolen items, to prevent accidents
    • New keybinds added for stuff in the “orders” panel
    • “Perception” stat added, affects accuracy with shooting in general
    • “Precision shooting” stat added, affects friendly fire chance
    • “Lockpicking” stat added, separated now from the “Thievery” stat, which now just covers stealing. This means that all your characters don’t end up inadvertently becoming specialised thieves as a result of escaping cages.
    • Thievery stat XP rate is doubled to compensate for the stat division. Lockpicking rate is the same.
    • “Crossbow smithing” stat added for crafting bows and ammo

 

  • TWEAKS
    • A new AI sensory system change means that your squad now has to rely on line of sight, which should hopefully stop them running off over the hills to fight enemies
    • The Fog Islands have better natural resources, so it’s now a nice place to build. It’s lovely, you should move there.
    • Damaged robot limbs don’t degenerate
    • You now get a combat XP bonus when a character fights outnumbered
    • Disguises don’t count as disguises unless they reach over 40%
    • Skimmers are less edible
    • The “strong” new recruits are now weaker, because thats the spirit of the game.

    • Overall toughness XP rate reduced by 28%
    • Campfire is now automatic cooking
    • Animals age 2x slower
    • Robots and robotic limb damage is now healed instantly, but wear damage rate has been doubled, and first aid speed is 0.33x slower

 

  • ECONOMIC BALANCE
    • Weapons and armour are now almost quarter of the price. I think they were so expensive I never bought anything, just looted and stole, missing out on the joys of shopping.
    • Beefed up Armour King’s security, because you guys shouldn’t steal from him, the best armourer in the world, you should experience the joys of shopping.
    • Gear loot sell price penalty reduced a little to compensate for the cheaper prices
    • As a result of all the above, crafting gear is not so insanely profitable and riches are generally harder to come by
    • Animal skin is worth 8x more money, and makes 4x more leather. Hemp worth 2x more.
    • The prices of food have gone up 10% (because of Brexit)
    • Shops close 2hrs later
    • Stopped nearby towns having vastly different trade markups, trade profit margins are more distance based
    • Improved the shops available in the great desert area
    • Armour blueprints 50% more expensive
    • Chainmail sheets are less profitable
    • Beak Thing nests have more eggs, raiding them should be a profitable adventure
