And another update! We are on the roll this time! :)

=== CryoFall v0.13.2 ===

Changes:
- Rebalanced creatures attack range, attack rate, and damage defense (this is really quite substantial change so we'd like to hear your thoughts on this)
- Slightly rebalanced Herbal Remedy recipe
- Increased healing herbs spawn density
- Rebalanced Musket and Flintlock pistol (increased damage, but also longer reloading time)
- Rebalanced armor defense formula to provide slightly more protection
- Increased armor durability (roughly by 2 times)
- Increased armor base stats, especially for impact protection and rebalanced certain armors to be more suitable for their designed role
- Further item synchronization improvements

Fixed:
- Fixed weapon scantest - in some cases the hit was not registered (this is very major improvement as it affects both player weapons and monsters)
- Fixed placement of seeds and saplings: it was possible to place it in your current position and stuck there (thanks @Aroie)

By the way, I don't see the picture in your post. I think it is better to upload it to imgur or similar service.

Ideas and suggestions / F.A.Q.

Hello Everyone.
Most of the time im in the game I see questions regarding usually the same stuff. So I will collect them here to point you here when asking :)

Can I repair my equipment? - Nope, and once it breaks it is gone for good. Just craft a new tool/armor.
How can I move my wall? - You can't. You need to deconstruct it and build it somewhere else.
How can I deconstruct? - You need to get a crowbar. Research it in Tier2-Contruction. But be warned, you don't get any ressources back

More questions once I hear them and got the time to document :)

Where can I get #ressource?
Clay is dark orange on the map, on the right in this example.
Copper and Iron are found on the mountains, they are marked brown and located on the top of this example.
Sand is located at the beach and around water sources.
Berrys and herbs are found everywhere on the map, but are more common in the dark green spots.


Regards, p0ki

Hi,

Yes, it should be possible. Will consider this for the next hotfix update.

Ideas and suggestions / The new Salt / Water
« Last post by p0ki on June 03, 2018, 06:26:25 am »
Heyho,
since the last update a lot has changed regarding salt/gold.

Back then you needed 10 bottles of water for 1 salt.
Now you need 2 bottles of (salty)water for 1 salt.

Back then you needed 25 salt for 1 gold.
Now you need 10 salt for 1 gold.

Overall the needed water for 1 gold is reduced from 250 bottles to 20 bottles.
I really like this new mechanic, since now I no longer need a room full of wells to get enough water for my gold.

BUT filling up the bottles requires you to click every time for each bottle. When mining you can simply hold the mousebutton down, but when you hold it down on the water you only get a single bottle with salty water.
Is it possible to change this, so that holding the mousebutton starts the next cycle once the previous one is finished?

Regards, p0ki.

   - Improved performance across the board, especially asset streaming which decreases the micro freezes on asset loading
   - Improved server performance so you should experience smooth gameplay even if there are hundreds of players.

Fixes:
   - Fixed exploit with weapon range. We will see how it plays and make further changes if necessary
   - Fixed issue with some animals that couldn't be killed
   - Fixed annoying head bobbing during the melee attack animation
   - Fixed console not opening in non-US keyboard layouts
   - Fixed new options not applying when an updated version of the game is launched

Ideas and suggestions / Re: Killers should be named
« Last post by Lurler on May 29, 2018, 04:30:35 am »
Well, griefing and raiding is part of multiplayer experience :)

But there will be several changes in one of the future versions to address this concern:
- you will be able to build defense turrets to protect your base from attackers when you are offline
- there will be higher tiers of walls to make your base even more defensible
- raiding will only be viable with explosives (which we will also add later), so raiders will leave new players alone and only focus on advanced players who can defend themselves, as only they will have valuable loot and raiding newbies would be just a waste of time for attackers
- we will also launch purely PVE servers where PK and raiding will be disabled

Bottom line is - don't worry. We are aware of the issue and we will make all the necessary changes to make the game interesting for everyone! :)

Ideas and suggestions / Killers should be named
« Last post by Saceur on May 28, 2018, 10:13:21 am »
Hello,

first of all I enjoyed playing the game and did not encounter any bugs so far.  :)
Neverless I suggest to name a killer and thief. During the time I was offline I was killed and robbed >:(. This may be part of the game and of course it takes a real hero to kill and rob an offline player, but maybe it would be more thrilling, if the renegade is named. Of course I would prefer to be save while I am logged off, but I understand this could be difficult as well.

Best greetings
Saceur
