  • v1.18.0 Lore Update: The Resonance Archives - Stable release!

    Dear Extraordinary Survivalists
    v1.18.0, a stable release, can now be downloaded through the account manager (section "Other Goodies").

    At long last! We're happy to release a stable build of 1.18 to our fantastic community. And while it took over 7 months and around 500 individual features, tweaks and fixes we did manage to cram a lot of stuff into this update. Honestly, I did not expect the main story event to turn out so well as it did in the end. I believe there is immense potential to tell a truly compelling story if we keep at it. As always, we're immensely grateful to everyone that tested the test builds and provided us with bug reports and other feedback. We hope you will enjoy this update! ūüíö

    What about the .net7 build?
    We announced a proposed update to .net7 to improve perfomance - it is currently on hold. We are waiting for a 3rd party library to fully support net7, which should be pretty soon.

    Whats next?
    For 1.19 we would like to refocus on the topic of dejank - a dejank redux so to speak. We'd like to playtest with the VS team and iron out inconsistencies and annoyances where we find them, but we already have a long list of things we'd like to look at. We hoped to also rework the surface and underground ruins for 1.18 - which will need to be pushed back to 1.19. We also hope to work on the second main story event in parallel when feasible.

    • Feature: Added¬† /land claim export¬† to allow players on multiplayer servers to export their claim to be saved on the server. Disabled by default, requires privilege "exportclaims" to run. It is up to server owners to determine what to do with these exports - they are in the server data folder. Useful for migrating to a 1.18 world via worldedit.
    • Feature: Added ability for players to generate the main story event from 1.18 - the Resonance Archives - at a chosen location through commands. This is for players and server owners that would like to have the main story event also in their old worlds. Instructions:
      1. Find a suitable location where there are no chunks that you want to keep, in a large area around
      2. Look at a block for the desired center location. Run command  /setstorystrucpos resonancearchive l[]
      3. Then standing at the same center location, use either command  /wgen regen 6  to generate the terrain on even ground, which might expose parts of the structure on the world surface in some instances, or use command  /wgen regenf 7  to generate hilly terrain which will better cover the full extent of the Resonance Archives, but might create some chunk borders.
    • Tweak: Gameplay balancing changes

    • Tweak: Performance optimizations
      • New "ChunkUploadRateLimiter" graphics settings that can help you reduce potential lag spikes during chunk loading (Detail: on PCs with fast CPUs and slow GPUs, new chunks may be rendered so quickly that a slow GPU chokes up, causing intermittent frame rate drops on affected systems, when moving into new map areas)
      • Supercharged chunk generation on CPUs that have at least 8 logical processors, e.g. 4 core, 8 thread CPUs. (Technical info: Chunk generation thread no longer goes to sleep while generating at 8+ logical processors)
      • Eliminated lag spikes in some areas of the game, most specifically when searching for buckets in the creative inventory (4s lag spike -> no lag spike)
      • Improve world startup speed by ~2.0 seconds. (Technical info: Make Lang system lock-free)
      • Further improved startup performance on worlds that are using many modded blocks (or were using many! even if a mod is¬†removed, it can have some lasting effect on block data storage in a saved game)
      • Much improved overall FPS when dropping thousands of items. (Technical info: If there is over 1500 entities loaded, dropped items will enter a physics dormancy state after a couple of seconds if there is no player in a 7 block range, where they will tick their physics 20 times slower)
      • Slightly optimize dropped item despawn behavior as well
      • Slightly increased overall FPS (Technical info: Tighter frustum culling check + do not draw moss and lichen, or loose stones at LOD2, additional face culling on less-visible distant¬†leaves at LOD2)
      • Slightly increased overall FPS #2 (Technical info: cave art and stone, gravel overlays not rendered at LOD2; partial blocks which are fully dark (0 sunlight, 0 blocklight) are rendered only at LOD0 distance, will only affect underground as world surface blocks have sunlight values)
      • Tweak: Improve FPS by up to 23% when at max view distance. (Technical info: Clamp lod bias beyond 640 view distance, resulted in 13 FPS => 16 FPS / 17mil tris => 12 mil tris at max view distance in a heavily forested area)
      • Tweak: Improve FPS with many falling blocks
      • Tweak: Small creatures should now no longer trigger falling block avalanches
      • Tweak: Mitigated a few sources of lag spikes on client and server (Technical info: Reduced lock contention, removed some unnecessary bits of code)
      • Fixed: Client side slow memory leak (Technical info: map regions were never unloaded on the client)
    • Feature: Full rewrite of the command system to be more powerful, more flexible, self-documenting and more everything.
      • Disclaimer: WIP. Thousands of lines of code were rewritten, but not all current commands are updated to the new Command API syntax.
      • Many commands now allow for complex selectors and can operate on multiple targets at once. Full documentation will be made available by us by the time of a¬†stable release.¬† For now, please use the in-game /help command, it should be able to provide full help for the commands which use the new Command API.¬† For example,¬†/help tp
      • Improved /ban command. Now must supply a time span and reason before banning a user. For a reasonless permaban, added command /hardban.

    API Changes

    The most significant change is a full command system rewrite. The old way of registering commands still works but is now marked obsolete. The new command system allows you to define commands using the Fluent interface design pattern, as well as have prebuilt argument parsers for you to choose from. The new syntax also allows us to automatically generate command syntax documentation \o/
    I've continued my efforts towards more behavior-based programming of blocks and items. There is a new BlockGeneric and StrongBlockBehavior base class which forward more method calls. Where possible, I tried to add or rewrite code to use block behaviors or block entity behaviors - such as the new door code. Support for multiblock structures is also improved, evident by the new large multiblock doors. The player mounting system should also be significantly more robust and flexible, see also raft code. Adding Worldmap waypoint icons is now dead simple - just drop in an svg file in the right folder.
    When a game world has loaded up, it will now print an error summary, so you no longer need to go searching trough the log files for errors. It looks like this when there are no errors:

    14.2.2023 12:22:23 [Client Notification] ===============================================================
    14.2.2023 12:22:23 [Client Notification] (^_^) No issues captured during startup
    14.2.2023 12:22:23 [Client Notification] ===============================================================

    Beyond that, there is the usual myriad of minor changes. Have a look:

    • Feature: New "StrongBlockBehavior" base class. Has a greater range of callbacks.
    • Feature: Block/Item Texture overlays now allows you to define a blend mode in json. For an example see assets\survival\blocktypes\wood\woodtyped\door.json. Available Modes: Normal, Darken, Lighten, Multiply, Screen, ColorDodge, ColorBurn, Overlay

    • Feature: Event.WorldgenHook and Event.TriggerWorldgenHook to run custom worldgen code at a particular position, triggered by something else for example placement of a specific block
    • The default Worldgen hook is "genHookStructure <assetname>" which generates¬†structure elements from schematics according to rules specified in the named file found in folder assets\survival\worldgen\hookgeneratedstructures
