Hallo OceanCrafters,

After months of work and lots of testing, we finally have the next update for you! As announced earlier this year the Theme is “Treasure Hunting” which involves treasure maps, sunken treasures, and an underwater environment.
Gameplay wise this update fills a gap in the middle of the current progress - before you get to build the sail. There is very few new content to the end of the journey. So, if you want to experience the changes fully, we recommend getting your friends together and starting a new game! Though of course you can still play with your old save games.

Treasure Map

The islands hold more secrets than you knew! Each one of them has a hidden treasure just waiting for you to find it. So, use your trusted compass to orient your treasure map to north, compare landmarks and start searching for the right spot. Once you have found it, you can use the new treasure magnet, to lift the chest out of the ground! See who of your friends can get to the treasure first!

Sunken Treasures

Deep on the grounds of the ocean there are not only sunken islands, but also sunken treasures waiting for you to find them. Once you see a treasure spot highlighted on the horizon, set sail, or use your new mode of transport the “waterwheel” to get there. You can use your crane to lift the sunken treasure up. We know there are sunken pirate ships, but what else can you find?

Underwater Reef

In the waters of every island lays a paradise just waiting for you. Use the diving pier to reach the underwater world, enjoy the atmosphere of the coral reef and collect some crafting resources.

Character Creator

We are finally fulfilling the discord communities wish for beards! Additionally, we added glasses you can wear, more hair colors, and the option to change your appearance in game with the crafting object “Dresser”.

Together with these changes we also made the hats into collectable items. This means whenever you find and wear a hat, it gets added to your collection and you can from then on choose to wear it from your collection.

You can also meet up with different players and exchange hat collections. To add to the fun, we added a whole bunch of new hats. Can you collect them all?

Player Rights

Did you have troubles with other players misbehaving on your OceanCraft? Then we have the solution for you! While you can not make them walk the plank, you can limit their interactions.

You can now decide on a per player basis if they can 1) access chests 2) build new objects onto you OceanCraft 3) destroy objects on your OceanCraft and 4) can grab anything.

Additionally, every chest/crafting table inventory has the option to be locked/set to “private”. A locked chest can only be accessed by the host of the game.

We hope these additional options will make you feel saver, when inviting other people to your OceanCraft. You can use the “Grab anything” right as a visitor mode, where other people can look at what you build, but cannot change anything.

Of course, you still have the option to ban people from your game if they continue to be trouble.

As always there is a lot more to explore. Here are the full build notes:
