PC v1.11

Hey Everyone,


This patch fixes some small issues that have come up since the last patch release.

We also added a new option for increased player versus player damage in multiplayer games. This option is off by default, but if turned on will allow players to more easily kill each other.


  • Fixed a performance issue when transitioning from day to night when using high or very high shadow option

  • (Balance) Tweaked amount of damage one of the late game creatures can do to structures

  • (Balance) Lowered amount of protection from creepy armor

  • Fixed snow stumps popping in too soon

  • Fixed missing pickup icon on rabbit in a cage

  • Fixed hang glider unusable after completing alternate ending

  • Fixed hang glider disappearing after saving and loading while holding the glider

  • Fixed chance plants grown in gardens could be removed randomly

  • (Multiplayer) Fixed a performance issue with rock paths in big saves

  • (Multiplayer) Added option for increased player to player damage in multiplayer games

  • (Multiplayer) Players can now set each other on fire with fire weapons



  • Added a fix for some players experiencing freezing on loading new or saved games after downloading latest patch

  • Fixed small menu translation issue

  • Fixed issue where player could take extra bomb damage in single player if mp increased damage was enabled



If you are running a dedicated server, you will need to restart your server with the latest version to be compatible with this patch release.
