Dear friends, we are happy to introduce our festive update in honor of Halloween!
Special content will be available during the holiday, a part of which will remain afterwards. All evil beings will behave far more aggressively than usual. But when you become a zombie hunter, you are eligible for special gifts: holiday attire and armor, unusual interior design items, and holiday treats for dwarves. On Halloween, monsters and plants will take on an unusual appearance, and the rest of the environment will look more terrifying.

Aside from the modifications related to the holiday, several additions and corrections have been introduced to the regular game:
+ Many new sounds have been added, including dwarf conversations and laughter, sounds of creatures in the biomes, and sounds for DLC. Sisters in Arms (conversations and laughter of female dwarves, sounds of their pets), etc.
+ At the start of a new level in campaign mode, a huge part of the tech tree now becomes initially available to the player with each new planet.
+ The rats have become less troublesome, their maximum population size has been reduced, and the interval between their appearances increased. Several errors in their behavior have been fixed.
+ When the select game dialog box is opened, the slot with your last game is automatically highlighted.
+ Alchemical recipes for collecting coal, iron, silver, gold, and mithril have been simplified.
+ Fixed: the main menu language was not changed until the game was relaunched.

Sisters in Arms is an official DLC to Craft the World that features new characters, special items, weapons, and decor, as well as creatures with new abilities.

Primary features:
● New characters: Female dwarves. The hard-working dwarves will be joined by their charming sisters in arms. Female dwarves have a little less health than their male counterparts, but their movement speed is significantly higher. They will defend the shelter and explore the dungeons along with the male dwarves.
●Pets: We’ve made two kinds of pets for you that can be called upon to hunt pests, guard the dwarves’ home, and protect their masters. Having a pet also significantly increases your comfort level.
●Mobile equipment: The dwarves have become more self-sufficient and now use temporary ladders without waiting for the player’s help if they can’t reach a certain spot. They also have access to parachutes that allow them to jump from high places without getting hurt.
● Defensive weapons: Dwarves armed with shields receive additional armor and can sometimes block attacks completely, but their speed is also slightly reduced. Several kinds of shields of various weights and armor levels are available in the DLC.
● When you zoom out on the map, resource-gathering locations will be marked with their corresponding icons. This will make it much easier to find the resource you need on the map.
● New dwarven defensive equipment: The mechanized catapult is effective against large groups of monsters and deals damage to an area from long range.
● In this update you will gain access to various panels for finishing walls. Keep in mind that you can choose their appearance with a click just like stucco.
● Wine casks that have been placed will occasionally generate bottles of wine that have several useful features.
