Hey everyone!

Back again with the first bigger update of the year. This update contains a bit of everything, including more settlement features and reworked raids. You can read more about them in the sections below. I plan to do these about once a month, as I have been before.

A big thanks to the people who have helped expand the official wiki. It's really starting to shape up! And a quick reminder that we also have a Discord server, where you can chat with me and other players, give suggestions and feedback. It's where I am most active.

I spent some time working on upgrading the engine for the settlement systems. The result is better estimations of paths. This was one of the stuttering sources of some settlements, and should now be fixed.

It's now possible to limit specific items or categories max items to store in your chests, and you can restrict your settlers with the new restrict zone system. This sort of overlaps with the existing defend zone system, which I think will get a rework or completely removed in the future. The UI for these will likely be changed as well.

Settlement raids have been a hot topic, and I know that it has some flaws. I don't think the feature is fundamentally bad, it just needs some changes to work better. Now raiders will come from a specific direction, and they will spawn in and prepare for a short time before attacking. You can also see the raiders on the island map, so you know where to defend.
I have some bigger plans for raids, so stay tuned for even more changes!

Once there are more options to the gear throughout the game, I plan to do a full rebalance of the progression. Right now a lot of the bosses are optional to the progression, and I would like a few more cuts in that.

Some of the other features in this update include:

  • Smart mining of floors/tiles.
  • Enchants to armor similar to trinkets, and enchants to all boomerangs.
  • Ore generation changes, will now for example spawn less gold.
  • A full set of gold gear.
  • Cosmetic (for now) minecart tracks to forest caves.
  • Some dropped items like gear will now be bigger on the ground.
  • Better clarity on some things, like armor in cosmetic slots.

And a bunch of other smaller changes and fixes!
You can read the full changelog below.

Until next time,
