Build 421 Released as default! Patch Notes for 2/17

Here is a list of improvements and changes that you can expect with this update 421:

Performance improvements
From the second you launch into a new world, you will notice the improved load times. As you navigate the iced lands before you, the experience is drastically improved with this update!

Pathing and avoidance around structures, objects and other creatures much improved
What this means is the AI will be functioning properly again. They will not be attacking you through walls, taking backpack rides on each other or standing around while you beat them in the face. Navigation should be drastically improved.

Animations improved
You will notice changes in the movement and general feel of the enemies. Seek out different foes to see these updates first hand!

Increased combat performance and overall AI improvements
Fights will feel better and balance numbers have been updated. You will no longer be attacked inside of buildings through the walls or see snow leak in through the ceiling of the house that you built so well.

Spawned items, enemies, and environment pieces have been tuned for each island
This update will change the experience. You will find a different verity of enemies spawning in areas and rare spawns will be found more consistently. Item placement, dungeons, and buildings have been adjusted as well. Adventure forth!

Kur, hidden weapons, and other changes
All I can say is that Kur will make sure that these lands stay Savage. Hidden weapons and a few other surprises need to be discovered by braves Savages.

If you like more specific patch notes from 420 to 421, here you all go:

Early Access

As an Early Access title, Savage Lands allows you to experience the game as it evolves through various phases of development. The game is in Beta which means new features, improvements, and bug fixes will be implemented on a regular basis. The development team is always looking to our Savage Community to help us hone the game experience and encourages everyone to contribute regularly to our Community Discussions.

If playing early and potentially buggy builds is not your thing, we encourage you to return at a later phase in our development process. But if you are interested in providing feedback and helping the development team fine tune the game through ongoing iteration, you have come to the right place!
