Building Decay:

One issue on large public servers is players who join, place a few buildables and leave forever. With the decay command you can now specify a delay before these items will no longer be saved. By default the timers last 7 real-life days, and are reset whenever the owner or group who placed the buildables joins. You can disable them by using 0 as the timer length, or for example 604800 to restore the 7 day timer. To avoid issues with losing bases on private servers or servers which only boot up every few days the timers also reset when the server has not been launched in half of the duration of the decay.


Skillsets have made a return from! By default they do not spawn with loadouts, but you can configure this on your server by using the ID of the skillset in front of your normal loadout commands. To give the items to all players similarly to how loadouts worked before this update use 255 as the ID, or for a specific skillset the following are supported:

0 - Civilian
1 - Fire Fighter
2 - Police Officer
3 - Spec Ops
4 - Farmer
5 - Fisher
6 - Lumberjack
7 - Worker
8 - Chef
9 - Thief
10 - Doctor
255 - All Skillsets

The temperature system has been overhauled to make winter gameplay more interesting than simply rushing to the nearest clothing store! Clothing is instead a protective layer by increasing your resistance to the snow [same with warmblooded] before you start freezing and reducing the damage you take from cold weather. If you begin freezing you can find cover to temporarily warm up a bit, use a heatstim or settle down by a campfire.


You can now pick up buildable items if they have full health, or if they have been damaged you will get some of the ingredients back! This can be done by the player who placed it and the group they were in. Now that weapons are not needed to remove these most guns and melee do not damage them anymore, so explosives are your best bet to take down a base.

  • Added ability to pick up full health built items and scrap damaged ones.
