This build has not been seen in a public branch.

Note: It is highly recommended that you use the /forceworldupdate console command if you're playing a save that has been updated in one of the recent patches prior to this.

Had one last problem with the noise math unfortunately, blending the grass biome into ocean improperly. That is fixed with this patch, along with the possibility for areas with too much ocean influence to end up going barren.

I've also improved the world update function to better position town buildings, farming plots, and miscellaneous things not attached to structures. There was a couple reports of items going missing from chests I was looking into at the same time and it turned out these were also caused by the world update. As a storage chests runtime data changes it has to report its contents to the save files for updating. That data is stored within the structure that the chest is attached to, so first it attempts to locate the structures save data based on its location in the world. After a world update buildings reposition their height so they're back on the ground, which caused that step in the lookup process to fail. Although the runtime data looked like it was behaving, the save data not actually getting updated properly. This patch will address that, if you invoke the /forceworldupdate console command, but cannot automatically restore already lost items.

It's been a rough couple weeks on beta. I know that's frustrating for players helping me out with spotting these bugs so that I can track them down and squash them. That's exactly why the beta branch is so very important though. I don't have any outstanding new reports of problems at the moment, and hope to be going through the bug tracker and the forums over the next couple days, but if something shows up, I'll snap to it!

In other words, thank you so much to everyone helping out in beta! Sorry it get frustrating like this sometimes. I assure you it's just as frustrating for me!
