  • v1.18.4/1.18.5 Security patch, further server perf tweaks


    Dear Extraordinary Survivalists
    v1.18.4&5, a stable release, can now be downloaded through the account manager (section "Other Goodies").

    [Edit:] Also released 1.18.5 to fix issues isolated to some players.

    Dear players, please update to this version, it fixes a number of issues in 1.18.3.

    Multiplayer games:  There is a server privileges security issue in 1.18.3 (and earlier game versions) which can affect especially the admins and other staff of multiplayer servers. It will not affect anything outside the multiplayer game and so far we have not gotten reports that this security issue has actually been abused by anyone, but even so we now advise everyone playing multiplayer to update to 1.18.5.  Will tell more info about the issue in a couple of days.  Note: a 1.18.5 client will require a 1.18.5 server to connect to.

    • Tweak: Barrel HUD info better formatted
    • Tweak: More performance improvements, mainly affecting server performance for each game tick

      • Improve BEFarmland slightly
      • Fruit tree ticking substantially faster (especially at chunk-loading)

      • Improve entityspawner: now better especially for butterflies (faster rejection of unsuitable spawn blocks: butterflies like flowers!)

    • Tweak: Fruit trees in Dormant state can tolerate 3 degrees more cold without dying
    • Tweak: Peach trees fruit slightly earlier (normally between cherry and pear)
    • Tweak: Instead of always being "low" weight or full weight, newly spawned wild creatures spawn with random weight, usually "decent" weight then adjusted for one week worth of potential hunger so typically "low" weight in winter/arctic regions
    • Tweak: Updated community translations
    • Tweak: Attempt to resolve player ghosting issue in multiplayer, or at least provide warnings in client log to help track this issue
    • Tweak: Add more debug tools for ticking blocks / grass growth to debug issues with grass not growing

    • Fixed: Damage log, death messages and killed-by info now show the player name instead of the projectile like for example throwable stone or by creature
    • Fixed: Fancy bed opened/closed appearance now the correct way round
