Update 0.6: Animals

The animal update is now finally available for the new version!
  • What's that in floppy disks? :lol:

    Way too many floppy disks :dizzy: More than 100 billion I guess :lol:


    I've updated my graphics card driver and its still having the same issue. Another player is having the same issue. We both logged out last inside of rather large buildings with lots of textures.

    It's weird... the amount of textures basically shouldn't matter, because they're all in a single texture array, so all construction textures are loaded to VRAM during game startup (so shading & texturing a single block has the same overhead as having thousands of blocks with different textures) :thinking:


    You could maybe try to reduce the texture quality (especially the construction texture quality) to the lowest value in the graphics settings (just to see if the crash persists).


    Otherwise I could only imagine that this may be related to the Unity version. In fact it's the HDRP which tries to allocate that insane amount of memory... we're currently using Unity 2022.2.7f1 (which was released on Februray 15), but a newer one is available. The changelog doesn't contain anything related to memory allocations though, and a newer version may always introduce new issues, but if we can't find a solution for this, we'll update the Unity version for the next hotfix.


    Why is the standalone launcher's download speed capped at 2.2 MBps? Is there any way to increase it?

    We don't have an artifical limit on the download speed.. but unfortunately we only have a single download server atm which is located in Germany. Depending on where you live this may have a negative impact on the connection to the server :thinking:

  • Oh. Well nevermind then. I live in Romania. Maybe that's why.

  • You could maybe try to reduce the texture quality (especially the construction texture quality) to the lowest value in the graphics settings (just to see if the crash persists).

    It's still crashing even with every graphics setting set to the lowest possible setting. Only thing I can think of is I logged out in a fully marble shiny room where I was experimenting with making a gold block a chrome color with the texture size set to 0 to make a mirror, but that doesn't explain why its happening to two other players on my server now in different locations.

    There is definitely something wrong, as there are some users experiencing this issue :thinking:


    This is the actual error:


    In your case, Unity tries to allocate 17 TB of RAM (apparently for a shader). The stack trace indicates that this happens during th render loop (invoked from the HDRP)... hard to tell what's causing this :thinking:


    We'll try to update the Unity version to 2022.2.8f1 for the next hotfix, hoping that this fixes the issue. If that doesn't help, we may try to update to the 2023.1 beta (but updating to a beta may introduce other issues) :|

  • Excuse me, but tell me how to get meat from an animal?

    Just hold a knife in your hands, then look at the carcass and hold your left mouse button ;)


    Hi red51, when gutting an animal it appears that only the modern day Combat Knife with it's bright-green-plastic-none-medieval handle works.

    Yeah, that was unfortunately a small bug :saint: I've released a mini hotfix for that 1-2 hours ago, but it's still the same version number. If Steam doesn't download the update automatically, please try to verify the game files manually^^

    If you're playing in multiplayer, it's also necessary to update the server for this ^^

  • Hi Red, thanks for the update. I believe the "Adapt to World Element" function has broken with the update. I press the key and nothing happens. Other people in the same server are having the same issue so I assume its a bug and not just me :)

    Thanks for letting me know, I can confirm that this doesn't work anymore for some reason :wat: We'll fix that ASAP (but unfortunately this won't make it into the next hotfix, but we'll try to fix that for the hotfix after the next) ;)


    I see Baby Animals, is Animal Husbandry in the works?

    Animal husbandry and breeding is actually planned, but unfortunately I have no ETA for that yet :/ First we want to get the new version a bit more fleshed out, so it can finally replace the Java version :D

  • We've released a hotfix btw! We found a potential workaround for the crash some users were experiencing. Please let us know if issue still persists! ;)

    Apart from that, this update also fixes a few smaller things. It's necessary to update multiplayer servers accordingly.


    Hotfix 0.6.0.1 (2023-03-02):

    • [Bugfix] Fixed crash that occurred on some machines (need feedback)
    • [Bugfix] Primitive knife now also works when gutting animals
    • [Bugfix] Fixed nearby workbenches not being detected in crafting menu
    • [Bugfix] Fixed error that occurred when loading a world while a sapling in inventory was equipped
  • EDIT: red51 SteamCMD finally allowed the server update to pass through. All fine now, thank you!!!

    red51 updating server with app_update 339010 -beta unity in SteamdCMD does not seem to work with the hotfix (worked fine for the initial update). Ideas?

    Edited 2 times, last by Juggernaut ().

  • Thats weird :wat: Does it work if you add a validate to the command?

    working fine now. The same happened with the word gen update. Clients updated 1st via their steam client, steamCMD on server didn;t see the update until 1hr later or less. Steam issue I tink. thank you!

    Woohoo! Can confirm my game is no longer crashing now and I can connect to my server just fine.

  • However, I have found a little bug in this version : The INSERT key ("adapt to world element") is broken now. Can you fix this ? Its one of the most usefull feature for building.

    Yeah, this is unfortunately a bug. We will fix that with the next hotfix (probably it will be ready in the next couple of hours) :)

    Oh, I'm glad to hear it works now! :)

    Awesome, I'm happy to hear that! :):thumbup:


    I have another bug. The command for showing ballistic trajectory doesn't seem to work anymore.

    Hmm... unfortunately I couldn't reproduce this issue :wat: The command is showballistictrajectory in the new version, it's still working on my end :thinking: It it doesn't work in your case, maybe you could send us a report? To do that, open the console and type "report" (maybe add some information like "cannot enable ballistic trajectory" or something like that) ^^

  • Hi red51, I'm exhauted to run behind foxes, moose and rabbits!! hahaa we need a bow :D


    But, very happy with this update! Congrats! At least, the world now is much more alive... ^^ :thumbup:


    Curious on what will be your next step. Caves & ruins implementation? NPCs part2 (with aggressive animals and bandits)? New biomes? What's your next move for your beatifull game? :saint:



    Quick question: What's included in "altered chunk"?

    Cutting a tree or destroying a rock or grabbing a potatoe, is it considered as chunk modifyed?

    Or only constructions make a chunk to be altered?

    Also, killing animal, makes a chunk altered?

    Thank you, if you can give some details on that please :)


    Congrats again :thumbup:
