Were releasing a new update today, which contains many fixes and changes based on community feedback. We hope everyone is having a good time playing Heat, we appreciate your support and we look forward to continuing to improve the game.

We are taking the servers down and rolling them back up in order to process the update. This update should not require a wipe.

If you experience a crash or freeze, please follow these steps, especially after an update as it seems Steam sometimes requires a file integrity check after an update to work properly - https://steamcommunity.com/app/656240/discussions/0/1777136225016630475/

Here are the changes for Alpha 14:

  • Players can no longer gain a trespass score on government land. (This caused the endless heat levels bug.)

  • Gunslinger Tents are now sold for $200, down from $500.

  • Gunslinger Tents can now also be crafted for a similar price in Wood (2000) and Cotton (400).

  • Made the Gunslinger Tent placement hologram a bit more cooperative with vaulted ceilings.

  • Updated tent and bonfire collision at the bandit camps. (Bandits shouldn't shoot at you from inside the large tent anymore.)

  • The encumbered panting sound effect has been reduced to 25% volume.

  • Increased the value of Sticks, Fiber, Wood, and Stone by about 25%.

  • Increased Geode drop chances from the forest.

  • Reduced the level requirement for bone tools to 5, down from 10.

  • Reduced the level requirement for copper tools to 10, down from 20.

  • Reduced the level requirement for iron tools to 20, down from 30.

  • Reduced the level requirement for the Glass Window to 5, down from 15.

  • Reduced the level requirement for the Large Glass Window to 10, down from 25.

  • Fixed the Wooden Construction Hammer's upgrade speed, now set to 5 hits to upgrade, down from 10. This allows it to upgrade faster.

  • Construction hammers now round up when applying upgrade materials. (This removes that extra hit to add 1 resource at the end of some upgrades.)

  • Reduced experience required for each level by 25%.

  • Added the "/unstick" admin command to get broken players off of the president's chair, or other various objects. Only use this command if the chair does not have the person sitting in it or it will not work correctly.

  • Increased bandit respawn time from 20 seconds to 60 seconds.

  • NPCs no longer fail to notice characters that come within their sight range.

  • NPCs no longer turn blind when two or more characters are within their sight range.

  • NPCs no longer get upset about an enemy attacking them, making them much more capable of staying on your team after surviving a fight.

  • Decreased the maximum sprint and run speeds of mountable animals. They are now set between Alpha 12 and Alpha 13 speeds.

  • Prevented the loading screen from appearing when unnecessary while moving around the environment.

  • Doubled the capacity of the Stash. (You may have to pick up your old one to gain this space.)

  • The stash can no longer be placed in the air.

  • Log Doors can no longer be picked, making all doors un-pickable. (The silent break-ins just confused new players, while everyone else avoided the log tier.)

  • Bounties now properly work and select rewards.

  • Bounties now properly remove posts when collected.

  • Increased additive land flag guild tax to 10% per claim flag on PVE servers, up from 1% for each extra land flag placed. This will make buying up tons of land add up in taxes.

  • The un-claimable road to the white house now fully connects to Washington. This will help prevent a wall off of the whitehouse, as it will now require all of Washington to be walled off as well, which will really add up in land taxes to service all that land.

  • Added "groupTaxPerLandAdded" to the server settings. This adds extra tax that a group pays for owning more land.

  • Added "groupTaxPerLandLimit" to the server settings. This limits the extra tax that a group pays for owning more land.

Thanks for everyone's continued feedback and support.
