Alpha 2.15 Update “Fast Travel and Capturing Enemy Camps”

New Features:

Fast Travel - Player can now right click on the icons in the world map. By doing so a dialogue will appear telling you how much fuel will be consumed for that trip. If you have enough fuel you will be brought to the spot you picked. If you don’t you will be notified that you do not have enough fuel.

Notes: Keep in mind fast travel only uses the main boat, so the player will need to link everything together via the crane, if you wish to take your pontoon or base along for the fast travel.

Capturing Enemy Camps - When players kill all enemies in an enemy camp, that enemy camp will be added to the tributary homes list and when the player relogs, a merchant npc will be there instead of enemies.

Notes: This will allow players to clear areas of enemy spawns making more safe areas.

Patch Notes:

-Seaweed and junkpiles have been added to the underwater caves

-Boat buoyancy adjusted so less water will clip with the model when at 100% buoyancy

-Fixed map icons, they should no longer be stacking and also show the correct positioning. Correct positioning will only be fixed in new games, since old saves are using an old texture set.

-Color corrections

-Adjusted super white reflections to be less reflective

-Fixed abyssal worms to be damaged by the fusion cutter

-Fixed sitting in chairs etc

-Fixed 3rd person hotkey function, “z” should be working again if you are driving the boat from the front.

-Fixed abyssal worms health UI to update when damaged

Boat Builder Update

How to build your boat?

Craft the “Pontoon” item and place it in the water. Once placed you will need to place down an engine for propulsion, a nearby generator for power, and fill up the fuel tank next to the helm. Once this is done players can then take control of the helm and control their boat.

You will need to test out different spots to place your items. The boat is physics based, so to get that perfect boat will require a lot of physics testing which is good news for the players, because they can now have crazy fun experiments now with the boat builder!
