    Underchallenged and Overchallenged Vintarians!
    v1.12.0, a stable release, can now be downloaded through the account manager

    At long last, it is here, version 1.12! I think we were again able to up the graphics fidelity by a notch or two 😉
    On Friday, in all likelihood, we will re-do some parts of the website and send out a whole bunch of game keys to youtubers and streamers that we believe could be interested in our wicked voxel game.

    [Edit:] Also released v1.12.1 to fix that some ruins were 100 times more common than intended.

    Screenshots, Gifs, Videos of new stuff after pre.1

    Game updates

    • Everything mentioned in the pre.1 blog post
       
    • The updates in in rc.1, rc.2 and stable
      • Feature: Smithing rework
        • There is no longer invisible extra voxels. What you place is what you get. Adding an ingot adds a 3x2x7 cuboid of voxels
        • Removed all but one Upset Mode, you can instead rotate the work item using right mouse click with hammer in hands. Not sure if thats a good change will probably re-add the other 3 modes
        • Reworked many of the smithing recipes to better fit the more limited available voxels
      • Feature: Cloud system rework
        • Clouds are now colored during colored sunsets
        • The regional weather system of the game is now also reflected in the cloud patterns. You can now see different cloud patterns in the sky
        • Some more attempts to reduce the rather ugly blocky seams in the clouds
      • Tweak: Removed some quirk about how chunks are loaded. Should make it so that chunks load instantly upon connecting/loading a world but might cause 1-3 frame long unknown blocks, let me know if that happens
      • Tweak: Low chance of fixing the fast hunger bug
      • Tweak: Lowered rain sound pitch and volume while under water
      • Tweak: Speed up world loading by reducing regex matching in the crystalized ore item
      • Tweak: Improved clouds performance (added a discard; to shader code. 30->38 FPS when the sky is in view at 128 viewdistance on an intel hd 620)
      • Tweak: Firepit tweaks
        • Brought the firing temperatures for clay products a bit closer together (was kinda wacky range. 600 for molds, 1100 for bricks, 600 for shingles. Now its 650 for molds, 800 for bricks and shingles). Single shingles require less time on their firing temperature to fire.
        • The firing temperature is now reached more quickly, therefore going above the firing/smelting temperature is much slower, reducing the "overtemperature" bonus.
        • Firepits heat up quicker
      • Tweak: Mitigate ruin generation overlap issues. Logs a warning instead of throwing an exception
      • Tweak: Reduce chance of gold deposits by a bit
      • Tweak: Maybe fixes a rare rounding error when smelting metals
      • Fixed: Rain sound not playing while swimming
      • Fixed: Butterflies causing client stutter
      • Fixed: Translocator animation oddities
      • Fixed: Rain going through roofs and worldmap not showing correct blocks in some cases (theoretically fixed)
      • Fixed: Z-Fighting on leaves when wavy foliage was turned off
      • Fixed: Capped max temp storm strength to fix a server side exception
      • Fixed: Forge extinct upon reloading the world or chunk
      • Fixed: Crucible not placeable
      • Fixed: Game crashing when a helve hammer gets unloaded
      • API Fixed: Mods with missing modinfo.json crashing the game
      • API Fixed: Game crashing on invalid transitionprops
      • API Fixed: Handbook crashing on invalid modded chest blocks
         
    • The updates from all the pre-releases after pre.1
      • Feature: Added display case to showcase your ores, shells and other small items
      • Feature: Added mechanical helve hammer. Can be used to autocraft metal plates and iron ingots from an iron bloom

        • Added vugs inside quartz veins - hollow cracks filled with crystals
        • Added loose boulders, these generate in mountainy and deserty areas
        • Added glow worms to caves
        • Added Tapestry and other new blocks to ruins. The former will give players more insight into the games lore
      • Feature: Added bioluminescent particle effect to warm, humid waters. Only appear in some locations.
      • Feature: Added aurora borealis effect to cold regions of the game
      • Feature: Added rare crystalized versions of ore. Drop with a 1/200 chance from graded ores, if not blown up by bombs.
      • Feature: Added armor stands, can be used to showcase armor
      • Feature: Added Raccoons. Spawns in forests near trees. Will eat berries from berry bushes and break harvestable skeps for the honey comb. Can pick up and carry around food.
      • Feature: Multilayer smithing. The way smithing works changed notably with this change. It's kinda weird but also kinda interesting. Tweaked Spear and Hammer smithing recipe
      • Feature: Wearing a backpack now visibly shows on the back of the player
      • Feature: Waypoint editor. Can now add, modify or delete waypoints by right clicking on the world map. Can now assign icons to waypoints
      • Feature: Added a shiny reflective effect to crystals, ingot plates, crystalized ores, display cases and other blocks
      • Feature: Iron bloom. Bloomeries no longer yield iron ingots directly but instead drop iron bloom which has to be worked into ingots on the anvil.
      • Feature: Improved damage overlay, new low health overlay
      • Feature: Can now quickly cool down hot items by throwing them into water
      • Feature: Tool modes now display names in the tool mode selector ui

        • Can now attach blocks to solid sides of chiseled blocks
        • Added new chisel mode to horizontally flip a block
        • Some experiments to chiseling to try to fix the weird ambient occlusion and sub/block light propagation. Let me know if that looks better
      • Feature: Creatures and items can now burn. Standing in lava will now instantly ignite entities. Hitting an entity with a torch has a 10% chance to ignite it
      • Feature: Items and dead creatures inside lava will disappear after a short delay

      • Feature: Chests, Vessels, Lanterns, Watering cans and Buckets can be rotated in 22.5 degree intervalls
      • Feature: New set of main menu backgrounds
      • Feature: Client side performance improvements to counteract the additional cost of fluffy leaves (Technical info: Poor man's LOD. The game tesselates each chunk twice now a low detail version and a high detail version. Distant chunk are now drawn using the low detail version. Increases RAM usage by a lot currently. Blocktypes can now define a lod1Shape shape file. You can set the lod range using .clientconfig lodbias [0..1] default is 0.25)
      • Feature: Added a remapper assistant. This tool now requires players only to press a button instead of going to the wiki and copypasting commands. Please make a backup of your savegames before using it.
      • Tweak: Game Server performance improvements
        • Uneccessary ~8% performance cost on the server (measured on the public test server)
        • Server frozen for 1-3 seconds during autosave
        • Major lag issue in the mechanical power system that will lead to an eventual server death

    Underchallenged and Overchallenged Vintarians!
    v1.12-pre.1 can now be downloaded through the account manager

    Yet again, this update was the "but now for real seasons" update, but to have seasons it would be seriously nice to also have rain and snow, so I ended up adding that and much more, to a point where you, the community voted on discord 2 to 1 that this should become its own update. On the bright side, we now have a beautiful weather system and I have now a pretty clear plan on how to get the rest of the seasons mechanics into the game for the next update. You'll also discover that the quality of the games ambient has also been pushed much further as well as a rather game changing new survival mechanic that conveys some more of that juicy lore into Vintage Story.

    Please notice
    1. This is a (likely bug-ridden) preview release, mostly intended for modders and very adventorous players. Version 1.12 is not feature complete yet!
    2. New "pre" updates will only be posted in discord #news and not on the blog. A new v1.12 blog post will come when the first release candidate is ready.

    Still planned features for v1.12: (disclaimer: Any amount of them might not make it into v1.12)

    • Optimization pass. The new weather system and fluffy leaves are rather costly. I hope to add a low detail mode or something of the sorts.
    • A special drifter drop during low temporal stability
    • A mannequin to put your armor on
    • A helve hammer to semi-automate smithing
    • Immersive Armor crafting
    • Animated chest lid, double chests
    • Rock boulders, a luminescent block in caves, papyrus root, rotatable containers
    • New drifter models, tool model overhaul, canvas block
    • 1-2 new creatures
       

    Screenshots, Gifs, Videos

    Completely reworked, location bound weather system. There's now various degrees if wind, snow, rain, hail and other weather effects. Weather impacts various mechanics in the game, such as extinguishing fires.
