Patchnotes via Steam Community


  • Magazine-loaded heavy weapons can now be drum-loaded.

  • You no longer get to confirm whether you want to jump down a deep shaft while you are confused.
  • You no longer get to confirm whether you want to move into a dangerous liquid pool while you are confused.
  • When you aim and fire a missile weapon directly at a creature, your target is now set to that creature.
  • When you aim and fire a missile weapon directly at a non-creature object, your target is now set to that object if you have no current target.

  • Suppressive Fire no longer bothers applying to immobile creatures.
  • Digging tools now only bestow the Dig activated ability when they're equipped in the right slots.
  • The "Wait a number of turns" command now defaults to either the highest current cooldown of your activated abilities or the last number of turns you manually entered to wait, whichever is higher.
  • Carnivorous creatures are no longer able to eat the severed limbs of plant creatures without getting sick.
  • Defensive Swipe can no longer push liquids and gases.
  • Taking 0 damage no longer interrupts autoact.
  • When an NPC is attacked for 0 damage, their friends now ignore the threat like they do.
  • The Recharge activated ability can now recharge items at any depth in your inventory (for example, energy cells slotted in weapons or stored in chests).
  • You can now recharge a rechargeable energy cell that's slotted in an artifact by interacting with the artifact, provided you know how to recharge.
  • You can now fill a liquid-fueled energy cell that's slotted in an artifact by interacting with the artifact.
  • Partially recharging an artifact now has a sound effect, a quieter version of the capacitor whine.
  • The Fill interaction is now usable on liquid containers even when the container is full.
  • When modding a stack of items using the "mod with tinkering" interaction, the other items in the stack are now visible on the Tinkering screen.
  • Force Bubble, Force Wall, force bracelets, force projectors, and Stopsvalinn now produce fields with the same phase characteristics as their source or their source's user.
  • Waveform worms can no longer use Waveform on the world map.
  • Creatures that fall down deep shafts can no longer rejoin their party leaders until the party leader enters the zone they're in.
  • Fixed a bug where forced movement while you were stuck would make a check as if you yourself were trying to break free.
  • Being stuck now gives resistance to forced movement.
  • Teleporting or otherwise moving away a creature that's grabbing you now breaks the grab.
  • Creatures made of liquid, gas, or energy can no longer become stuck.

  • Fixed a bug that caused "mark as important" and "mark as unimportant" to not work.
  • Fixed a bug that caused your level to appear as "True" your the character sheet.
  • Fixed a bug that broke sultan history text generation and produced nonsense like 'cliff cliff'.
  • Fixed a bug that broke the autocollection of liquids.
  • Fixed a bug that occasionally caused your inventory or chest inventories to bug out on opening.
  • Fixed a bug that caused some items to never become wet when dropped in liquid, which meant dropping them in liquid did not extinguish them when they were on fire.

  • Fixed a bug that caused some pathfinding creatures to avoid other hostiles based on how dangerous they were to those hostiles instead of vice versa.

  • Fixed some hotkey collisions in the new interactions.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the nearby campfire indicator to float away.
