Rise to Ruins - Rayvolution
Greeting everyone! Every once and a while I have to revise my road map plans. This is one of those times! After some extensive thoughts on the future of Rise to Ruins I've decided to rearrange the development scheduled a bit, and drop fishing from the next update, replacing it with some heavy rebalancing, trash system changes and AI adjustments to prepare for Rise to Ruins' launch in October!

Don't worry though, fishing is still planned. It'll likely happen after Rise to Ruins releases in the many free content patches you guys will get post launch.

Rise to Ruins development will not end when the game leaves Early Access in October.
So be sure to keep posting your suggestions and opinions! I will be supporting the game and continuing on with additional 100% free content patches well after Rise to Ruins has left Early Access. ːrtrheartː

You guys have been amazing over the years, and I thank you for all your support on discord and twitter! This has been an amazing experience, and I have you guys to thank for it!

I encourage you to post your nitpicky tweaks/gripes/suggestions below! Now that the game is moving into its home stretch to launch, all future patches will have a heavy focus on fixing/polishing "the little things" as I go. So now is the time to complain about all those "little things" that bug you, no matter how small! :)

InDev 34 Revised Road Map

Hunting
  • Guards will be completely redesigned into a new Ranger job This new job class will combine the functions of the new rangers and the function of guards into a single job. During the day time, they will hunt animals out in the wilderness, and during night they will defend the village.
  • The current outposts and barracks will be re-purposed and the barracks renamed to a ranger's station. Functionally they will remain fairly similar. This is a rename/reskin of the building to make it suitably themed with the new hunter job.
  • 4 new animals will be added to the game, to be hunted. The Beefalo, The Entler, the Rous and The Clucker. They will spawn on uncorrupted land in and outside the village.
  • To complement the new hunting systems, new complex foods will be added. The kitchen will be able to combine multiple combinations of foods into more complex and nutrient rich dishes.
  • A new farm type will be added to house captured animals, to be slaughtered, bred or farmed as needed.
  • The kitchen will now be able to slaughter animals for meats and byproducts like raw leather and feathers.
  • The toolsmiths and armorsmiths will now be able to make wooden and leather tools, weapons and equipment.

Corruption Changes
  • Due to rioting with pitchforks popular demand, the corruption mechanics will be altered, allowing you to completely annihilate the corruption in a region if you're skilled enough. (But it won't be easy!)
  • Monster spawn rate will be slightly re-balanced, opting to spawn higher level monsters rather than higher amounts of monsters. Although spawn counts will still increase, just at a lower rate.
  • A nightly spawn cap will be reintroduced (Similar to InDev 32's mechanics), but instead, when the nightly spawn cap is reached the game will start to greatly increase monster levels.

Trash System and Resource Changes
  • Resources will now take twice as long (and some, 3 times as long) to decay into trash.
  • Less trash is generated overall.
  • A new harvest/refine to storage limits setting will be added to the production panel, allowing your workers to only generate more resources when there is a place to store them in the village.
  • The entire resource storage system will be redesigned to store specific amounts of specific resources rather than totals of all resources. For example, the lumber mill will no longer store 36 wood or boards in total, rather it can store 12 boards and 24 wood.
  • Due to the above changes, many buildings will get their storage heavily buffed or nerfed accordingly.

Miscellaneous Changes
  • The object/building data will be completely overhauled, reducing overall memory usage, and decreasing save and load times.
  • All building perks will now be retroactive.
  • Tons of miscellaneous AI and balance improvements.

The first unstable patch for InDev 34 has arrived! This patch introduces a ton of improvements to the save system, lower memory usage, and faster save/load times. In addition it also brings in a ton of balance changes to trash and the corruption mechanics as well as some other nice tidbits. Check out the change log!

NOTE: This patch makes extensive chances to your save data, I highly recommend backing up your profile before playing. When you launch the game, a warning panel will pop up, when it does, click "Open Install Folder" and then make a backup copy of the /profiles/ folder!

InDev 34 Unstable 1 Change Log

Save System Optimizations
  • The entire save system for object/building data has been completely rewritten, significantly reducing memory usage and save data size.
  • Numerous changes and improvements to tons of modules have been done to drastically decrease save file size, save time, load time, and memory usage. (Note: The first time you load an old save it may take some additional time as it converts the data to the new format. I also strongly recommend loading and then saving and exiting at least once on every region just to decrease overall load time and memory usage on the world map.)

Balance Changes
  • Less monsters now spawn overall, but their levels increase more rapidly.
  • Monster level increases extremely fast when the corruption is highly threatened. (Warning: If you pinned the corruption in your save, the difficulty may be unexpectedly much higher suddenly.)
  • The corruption can now be completely destroyed, but it's extremely hard and time consuming.
  • Doubled resource decay times for most resources, and tripled others.
  • It now takes less trashy trash to make a trashy cube.
  • Reduced farm range to 24.
  • A fourth dark purple work selection color has been added to signal when a work selection has been threatened.
  • When pushing back the corruption, it becomes more resistant and slower to push back the more pinned it is.

Miscellaneous Changes
  • Building perks are now retroactive.
  • Wolfmere is no longer connected to Deepnesse
  • Added a new "Make/Maintain until storage is full" option for all resources.
  • Harvesting tasks are now set to maintain to storage limits by default, rather than infinite. Although the infinite option still exists if you want to use it.
  • Made loot boxes more encouraged to teleport closer to the village.
  • Added a "backup your saves" warning to old profiles loading InDev 34 for the first time.

Bug Fixes
  • Send villagers goal now counts correctly.
  • Year calculations fixed (Yes, again)
  • Fixed a string key call in the trash AI task list.
  • Fixed a bug where a monsters "breakaway chance" would fire too rapidly in the day time, possibly causing some lag at dawn.
Rise to Ruins - Rayvolution
Just slightly over 5 years ago (May 3rd, 2014), I decided to make a simple pathfinding tech demo, to prove you can design a large scale pathfinding system for thousands of creatures all at once on a large, complex map. Well, that tech demo sparked an idea, an idea that turned into what you're currently playing; Rise to Ruins.

Now, after 5 years of solo development, the final InDev release is underway! (Actually, it has been underway for about 2 weeks, but hey!) Your support has been amazing over these 5 years, and I'm proud to announce InDev 34 will be the last content update before Rise to Ruins leaves Early Access In October!

This primary focus of this update is (you guessed it!) to add new hunting and fishing to the game. Part of that will also mean reworking guards and adding more complex food options. There will also be a ton of tweaks and improvements done to the new save system, corruption mechanics, as well as the usual general optimizations and improvements.

Rise to Ruins development will not end when the game leaves Early Access in October.
So be sure to keep posting your suggestions and opinions! I will be supporting the game and continuing on with additional 100% free content patches well after Rise to Ruins has left Early Access. ːrtrheartː

  • Monsters can no longer spawn from incomplete buildings.
  • "Clear Resources from Road" AI added that will prevent incorrect resources from sitting on a road and stopping your way makers from upgrading it.
  • New builder AI improvements that should help avoid the "Waiting for one last hit of work" taking forever because the worker tasked with the job is on the other side of the village.

  • Fixed a bug where water harvesting will not respect if a building's storage if paused or disabled when deciding to harvest more water, possibly causing an over harvesting problem.

Rise to Ruins - Rayvolution
This is a fairly small bug fix patch, correcting a few issues that creeped up in InDev 33. If you're looking for the previous "Passive Tips" update, check out InDev 33c's change log.

If you're interested in following development much more closely, don't forget to follow me on Twitter or join the awesome community on Discord!

InDev 33d Change Log

Miscellaneous Changes
  • Clearing terrain, roads, digging and all harvest AI now obey the new threat map introduced in InDev 33c, and should drastically cut down on villager's suicidal behavior when new work becomes available after pushing back the corruption.
  • Increased the rate trash decays in the corruption.
  • Decreased the rate corruption destroys natural resources like trees and food.

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed a crash if you assigned road work to upgrade to a path, and before the road was actually upgraded to a path one was generated naturally on the same tile, causing a loop in the road AI and eventually crashing the game when the AI tried to interact with that tile.
  • Guards posting at a building being upgraded no longer has a very small chance of crashing the game.
  • Implemented a possible fix for the rare bug that could sometimes cause resources to be generated in a building that was just destroyed, causing the game to crash next reload.
  • Fixed a rare bug that would corrupt a save file if you saved and exited while you were carrying a resource your hand.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause organizers to accidentally place the wrong resources in the wrong buildings, mainly keys. Credit to Veldrin on Discord.
Rise to Ruins - Rayvolution
InDev 33c has arrived, introducing a new passive tip system that should help newbies out a bunch. Now you guys get the same information, but more on your terms, rather than the prior "interrupt your game and slap you in the face with a wall-o-text" method. Now, tips will pop up when conditions are met, and float around the area that triggered them, so you can click on them when you're ready.

This patch also introduces a mess of bug fixes, balance changes to trash, and the first half of a new "threat awareness" system that will greatly cut down on workers doing things in unsafe areas of the map.

As per usual, check out the change log! :)

If you're interested in following development much more closely, don't forget to follow me on Twitter or join the awesome community on Discord!

InDev 33c Change Log

Passive Tip System
  • Most tips now pop up and hover around what triggered them, waiting for the player to click on them.
  • New tip sound has been added.
  • New tips have been added related to over harvesting, resource decay and walls being attacked.

Trash Re-balance
  • All trash is worth 50% less "trash points", meaning it will be burned/destroyed faster.
  • Trashy cubes are still worth the same trash points, but with trashy trash worth half as much, that means it takes 2x more trashy trash to make a single cube. Buffing cubes indirectly because now you can condense more trash into one cube.
  • Burners are roughly 20% faster, but since trash is also worth 50% less trash will also be destroyed 60% faster (50% less points, 20% faster rate). eg; it consumes "trash points" 20% faster, and trash is worth 50% less points.
  • Trashy Loot Boxes spawn rates reduced 66%.

Miscellaneous Changes
  • The custom resource bar can now list up to 32 items.
  • Greatly reduced the memory footprint of the new save system.
  • Migration Way Station can no longer store trash.
  • New threat map system implemented, that will help prevent workers from getting near towers and monsters to collect resources or build and repair roads. In a future patch, it will be utilized for many other work tasks as well.

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed a bug that was preventing water bottle refining from progressing in the goals system.
  • Fixed a bug that was causing some fight or flight mechanics to miscalculate.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause paths to not generate on commonly walked tiles.
  • Fixed processing trash goal.
  • The game will no longer crash if you try to move the world map with WASD controls or edge scrolling when a game mode has not yet been selected.
  • Game no longer crashes when a monster tries to spawn and no corruption exists.
  • Implemented a possible fix for a very rare crash if the dedicated threads are in the middle of work when the player exits the region.
  • Fixed a bug where the game would crash if couriers or migrants tried to leave a map and couldn't find an exit.
  • Fixed an issue where empty profile folders from previously deleted cloud save data would be listed as "Corrupted".

Rise to Ruins - Rayvolution
Greetings fellow and future deities!

Rise to Ruins is on sale for the next 48 hours at its lowest historic price on Steam, only $3.40 (or, 66% off)! This will be the lowest price point you will see Rise to Ruins on Steam for a very long time, so if you're interested in buying, now is the time!

This is part of the ultimate plan to launch the game out of Early Access later this year. After tons, and tons of community feedback between the discord, twitter, and the official forums I have settled down a game plan for Rise to Ruins' road to release.

Phase one starts with this blowout sale, giving everyone "one last hurrah" to get the game at a great price and we blast our way through to leaving Early Access. After the sale is over, the game's price will increase to $14.99 for the remainder of Early Access.

Phase two starts with the next two major content patches. InDev 34, the "Bio and Hygiene" update and InDev 35/Release 1, the "Fishing and Hunting" update.

Phase three, one month prior to leaving Early Access, the game will hit its final price point collectively agreed on within the community; $19.99, and then have a launch discount of 30% when the game finally leaves Early Access.

After release, development will not stop. As I've said in the past, these sort of games are never truly finished, there's always more to add! You will continue to get completely free content patches as long as the community is still active. Reaffirming my policy there will be no paid DLC. You will all have all the content the game will ever contain, for the single one-time asking price. It's the way I've always done things with Rise to Ruins, and that will not change. So hopefully, for the years to come Rise to Ruins will continue to expand and grow, and at absolutely no additional costs to you, you'll continue to get more and more content.

I thank you all for your great reviews, feedback, suggestions, and everything else you've provided over the years during Early Access. I am looking forward to launching the game this year, and I hope you'll all stick around during and after the launch for years to come. It's because of your support that I am privileged to do my dream job, and I will continue to do my best not to let you down on the road ahead. ːrtrheartː
