0.9b6 - July 25th, 2018

We found a game killer for the dragons so we're pushing another build. Specifically:

  • Fixed Fixed young dragon nest construction which otherwise wasn't possible.

0.9b5 - July 24th, 2018

We noticed the flora respawn rate wasn't keeping up with an island that has been online for awhile, resulting in an island that would eventually be nearly devoid of all flora. We also noticed the new fauna wasn't spawning at all. Those should be fixed with this small patch. Here's the full list:

  • Updated Adjusted the flora respawn rate.

More bugs squished and some very small modifications squeezed in.

Also, I should've clarified, this IS the build we're launching with (0.9b) but we'll likely increment on it with these bug fixes and super minor tweaks. Alright, so the what's what of this update...

  • Updated While not really a bug, we fixed an issue that was throwing an error.
  • Updated Removed some placeholder sounds.
  • Updated Replaced a few placeholder sounds with their final versions.
  • Fixed Fixed a bug that was related to furniture.
