v1.19.4 - Stableified glue!


Recommended Posts

Dear Extraordinary Survivalists
v1.19.4, a stable release, is now available to download through the account manager.

Over 200 features, tweaks and fixes later, the 1.19.4 update looks in a good state to us now. The new First Person view (fp) mode introduced in 1.19 also looks to be in a decent state by now. Some areas still need fine tuning, but we'd like to believe it's now in a qualitatively better state than the hand-less fp mode of 1.18.

Featured changes include a rebalancing of loot in ruins - obtaining clutter blocks is now more challenging and requires plentiful application of glue, but at the same time there is more variety in the smaller objects found in chests and containers among the ruins. We also added placeable hides, and a new wireframe color setting in the Accessibility tab to assist players with color vision impairments.

Game updates

All the changes from 1.19.4-rc.1, 1.19.4-rc.2 and 1.19.4-rc.3:

  • Feature: Clutter blocks shatter when broken, unless first repaired using glue
    • Clutter blocks can no longer be obtained with a 50% chance by breaking them, they now require repair in situ. Partially-repaired blocks have a chance of not shattering. Clutter blocks already obtained by players are safe from shattering
    • This shatter rule is configurable on a per-world basis (and is by default disabled in the Exploration play style). New world configuration option "Clutter obtainable"
    • Pitch glue can be made by cooking up resin and powdered charcoal. A pot of glue can be used to repair clutter blocks within ruins, simply right-click with the pot in the active hand
    • Glue hardens within a few hours after it is made, but hardened glue can be re-heated in a firepit. Players wanting to repair clutter may need to create a firepit close to the ruins
    • Cooking pots can now be used to cook non-food items; but cooking such substances in a pot will result in a "Residue-covered pot" which can never again be used for meal recipes: nobody likes to eat glue!
    • Powdered charcoal is made by grinding charcoal on a quern
  • Feature: "With great ruins comes great lootability"
    • A wider selection of loot is potentially available in chests and other containers within ruins, both on the surface and underground
    • Some containers may contain smaller clutter objects (if found in chests, these therefore can be obtained without any need to repair them)
    • A new cellar is included in one of the large ruins
  • Feature: Re-bindable mouse buttons (as first mentioned in the 1.19.0-rc1 news)
    • Any keyboard control or macro can now alternatively be configured to a mouse button [Detail: in Settings, Controls tab, click on any setting and then to set it, click a mouse button instead of a key.  Left, middle, right buttons and, for multi-button mice, up to 5 additional buttons are supported]
    • In-game left, right and middle mouse-clicks can be re-bound, either to different mouse buttons or to keyboard keys. For example left and right mouse buttons can be swapped, or for mice with only two buttons, a keyboard key can be used for middle clicking
    • Pick block is now re-bindable to any key or mouse button
  • Feature: In the Accessibility settings tab, knapping, clayforming, smithing voxel wireframe colors are now configurable between different presets. In addition to the standard setting, two alternative presets for these colors are provided, chosen for better contrast for players with certain types of color blindness (color vision anomaly)
  • Tweak: Hides are now 3D models, and can be placed on the ground
    • Raw hides will begin to rot after 5 days. Oiling or soaking the hide will prevent it from rotting.
  • Tweak: Improved visuals for barrels and troughs
    • New barrel models
    • Barrel contents appearance for raw vegetables more closely matches the actual vegetable (Cabbage, Carrot, Onion, Parsnip, Pumpkin, Turnip, and Bell pepper)
    • Improved appearance of some other items in barrels (Cooked bushmeat, fish, poultry, redmeat; raw mixed vegetable)
    • Vegetables in troughs now have the same appearance as vegetables in barrels, with some extra tweaks at the borders
    • Minor tweaks to appearance of both small and large troughs, and rot models
    • Fixed: grains in troughs did not use proper texture; dry grass (hay) in troughs had too much shadow
  • Tweak: Performance improvements: do more, with less!
    • Several memory optimizations, resulting in the game requiring less RAM overall, and fewer memory-related lag spikes:
      • Reduce server and singleplayer RAM usage around 250MB overall  [detail: Schematics used by ruins and villages are now cached and partly lazy-loaded]
      • Reduce climb in RAM usage on client when moving to new world areas
      • Additional loaded ruins and other schematics RAM optimisations, with larger savings when using certain mods
      • Mitigate rapidly climbing RAM usage and lag spikes resulting from it, especially when the same chunk had to be redrawn multiple times when blocks within a chunk were modified often. (Technical details: Reduced GC pressure by reduced heap allocation during chunk tesselation, by reusing instead of re-allocating MeshData objects. Can be disabled by adding the following new line in the boolSettings area of clientsettings.json: "disableMeshRecycler: true" or the corresponding .clientconfigcreate command, requires game restart to take effect)
      • Minor server-side RAM optimisations when saving or sending chunks
      • Minor RAM optimisations for Microblocks, Clutter etc.
      • Fixed: Slow cumulative memory leak on long-running game client, seen after many hours of play
      • Fixed: Lag spikes when starting to type in chat or handbook (only seen with RAM mode set to "Aggressively Optimize")
      • Fixed: Total memory use: the debug screen and /stats command showed too high a value, more than Task Manager showe
    • Reduce network usage in large-scale multiplayer games  [detail: Fewer entity position update packets for dropped items, dead creatures and other non-moving entities]
    • Minor optimisations to clayforming
    • Reduced client-side lag spikes from doors in newly loaded chunks
    • Fixed: Server was sometimes unnecessarily sending the same chunk to the client twice (e.g. following a teleport)
  • Tweak: Gameplay balancing
    • Soil, sand and stone mining resistance are all increased by 20% (take longer to mine), gravel resistance is decreased 20% [note: part of the thinking behind this is that obtaining these heavy materials should be more time-consuming, relative to obtaining wood or small blocks; it also helps block breaking time match up better with the shovel and pick animations in some cases; players and servers who preferred the old speeds can, if they like, adjust global mining speed for all blocks in world configs]
    • Cobblestone mining speed slowed, to be more in line with other stone materials; cobble stairs now mine at the same speed as other cobble blocks
    • Mountainous creatures (deer, goats, bighorn sheep) now take less fall damage, should mitigate issues when they flee off precipices
    • Chickens and chicks now take slightly less damage from falls, compared with other creatures
    • Entities (except when fleeing) now strongly avoid pathing through boiling water
    • Moose jump height is reduced to 2 blocks, less than most deer
    • Fancy linen patterns (square/offset/diamond pattern) are now a Tailor-exclusive grid recipe. Make them using normal linen, plus sewing kit, in various configurations. Any player can turn fancy linen back into the normal linen pattern using shears, in grid
    • Commodity trader no longer sells square/offset/diamond linen patterns, only normal
    • Cooking pots are shelf-storable
    • Whole pumpkins can no longer be placed in a trough as animal feed, they must first be sliced
    • Tule, cattail, and papyrus roots all now cook into the same food item: 'cooked wild rhizomes'
    • Tule now has plantable roots.  Tule, cattails, and papyrus now have planter and flowerpot models that respond to climate
    • Auto-close the trader dialog and trading window when a player moves out of range of the trader
    • Support beams placed on blocks can now be individually removed instead of all at once (not yet on chiseled blocks, sorry)
    • Chiseled blocks with beams on them, when broken, now only drop the beams in Survival mode
    • Meta blocks such as Command blocks and stack randomizers no longer drop when broken by players in Survival mode [note: in Survival mode, meta blocks are normally invisible and therefore untargetable by players, but players have a setting to enable visibility and targeting of such blocks, mainly intended for mod and map makers]
    • Fixed: .cam command was available to Survival players
  • Tweak: New first person mode tuning
    • In the Interface settings tab, players can now change the field of view for the first person mode hands, reduced default FoV from 90 to 75. This mitigates first person hands looking unnaturally long.
    • Better synced smithing sound and action
    • Added shield block pose when blocking with right hand
    • Added custom animations for the bug net and squeezing honeycombs
    • Added animation for inserting temporal gear with a knife (to restore the player's temporal stability)
    • More sluggish mouse movement and seraph model rotation while swimming
    • Tools now follow the player's cursor more closely in first person mode.
    • Less jarring transition back to tool ready position, after using a tool to hit
    • Impove feel of axe, club and hammer when used as a weapon

      • Torch in hand - could endlessly repeat instead of holding it out straight
      • Shield block pose not stopping when placing the shield on an armor stand
      • Player endlessly holstering spear after world reload
    • Fixed: Block edge sitting was sometimes triggered in the wrong places
    • Fixed: Block edge sitting looked strange in first-person if the camera is rotated beyond a normal neck angle; camera is now rotation-limited in this pose
    • Fixed: Hammer and chisel animation working properly again
    • Fixed: Hammer no longer clips into the camera when breaking blocks with it in the off-hand.
    • Fixed: First hit animations on spear now consistent with all subsequent hits
    • Fixed: Shovel ready animation now longer firmly attached
    • Fixed: Idle animations for lanterns and pumpkin fruit

  • Fixed: Microblocks not allowing 255 materials
  • Additional minor tweaks relevant only to coded mods:
    • KeyConfiguration used for hotkeys can now also represent a mouse button; mouse buttons are treated like keyboard keys with keycodes 240-247
    • For AITasks, the EntityPartitioning system is now divided more logically into Creatures and Inanimate entities, use EnumEntitySearchType to specify which
    • For all string IndexOf(), StartsWith() or EndsWith() operations on strings representing game internal elements, for example AssetLocation, texture codes and other dictionary keys or anything found in JSON code, StringComparison.Ordinal should be used for culture independence.  See .NET Best Practice Guide.  Vintagestory.API.Util now provides helper methods string.IndexOfOrdinal(), string.StartsWithOrdinal() and string.EndsWithOrdinal() which you can use; and for AssetLocations, ordinal comparison is built-in to new convenience method AssetLocation.PathStartsWith()

    • Exceptions thrown by BlockEntity.FromTreeAttributes() are now logged with position of entity and type
    • Any mod directly accessing BlockEntityMicroBlock.sideAlmostSolid or .sidecenterSolid should re-compile for 1.19.4 (no actual code change in the mod should normally be required, but the field type changed, pull latest VSSurvivalMod source from GitHub)
    • Notice: For coded mods using native binaries (.dll in Windows) in a /native folder, these will now not get loaded automatically (they would produce 'Bad IL format' errors at loading time anyhow). Applies to native binaries representing either libraries or a mod's own code not written in C#. Mods needing to load native binaries should instead write their own short DllImportResolver method [example] to locate their native binaries properly for each platform, and also include a static call to set that DllImportResolver [example line of code]

Great work, as always! 💪

But sad to see the mining nerf actually go trough unchanged, even after lots of negative comments about it's impact on an already very time consuming task. We spend loads of hours mining, and now we need to spend another 20% more time down there 😵‍💫 not a huge fan of this change..

Interesting! I'd run into that, and it corrupted a world (which I was thankfully able to recover) but I wasn't in a dev environment, just a regular world.

@Apehjerne, you don't have to spend the extra time, as that line makes plain. It's just that you have to change the default setting.

Personally, not that big of a deal. I'm not sure what the difference in playstyle is, but mining has never taken up very much of my time. Steel tools last forever, iron, only half of forever, so it's not like you need to mine that many nodes to "win" the game. All told, maybe 3-4 stacks of copper ore, a stack of tin ore, and 4-6 stacks of iron ore. Round it out with a half-stack each of quartz, halite, sulfur, and black coal. Somewhere around half of all that usually comes from ore bombs anyway.

Nice to see all the fixes, but as I read through, I think I had only encountered 2 of them. Some I never would have, like the jonas part in a display, or noticing one of the antler mount hit-boxes wasn't centered.

The chance of Jonas parts seems much higher in ruins now!

It seems that way to me, too. Pretty sure one dropped in a temporal storm, and you can get several just clearing out a den of locusts. All the other games, I've only been able to assemble a single device, while in 1.19, I already have 2.


I think drifters in general have better drops. Pretty sure I'm getting more flax, enough to make it worthwhile hunting, at least in the early game. More gears, too.

I'd still prefer if the mining animation was made faster or the sounds were made slower (especially considering that many people did not like the slower mining idea and that I'm pretty sure it de-syncs Tailor anyway because of the innate -10% mining speed) but aside from that this is a really cool update!
I love the hides and barrels, and have already had much luck finding clutter in chests, so I think that this update is looking great as always! 💯

Hi, reading this in the devlog, I am wondering, is there a tomato in-game now?

  • Improved appearance of some other items in barrels (Cooked bushmeat, fish, poultry, redmeat; raw mixed vegetable; tomato)


Kind regards,

In regards to your edit, it seems the same to me. Very slightly better drops.

For Jonas parts though? I'm either getting very lucky, as are you, or the loot tables have been mercifully updated. I don't think I got a single Jonas device assembled in 1.18.

You should make triple-headed drifters your priority targets. They are the elites of the bunch and always carry a lot of precious stuff on them. From my current testing, you have about 50-70% chance for a jonas part drop and they usually have a bunch of gears on them too. Definitely worth it, especially considering a single storm can spawn at least a couple of them before it disperses but they're quite tough and hit like trucks, so better be prepared (or just don't get hit 🫠).

They have triple now? That might have been it. I just assumed anything with more than one is a double.

Mostly, I don't care that much about the loot, except very early when a rusty gear or strand of flax is worthwhile going after. I just noticed several seemed to have better drops when I was clearing caves, and I usually don't have all the flax I need when the first storm comes around.

While this was admittedly a larger locust nest than I'm used to (or maybe it was 2 nests that spawned next to each other) there were 8, maybe 10 of the ruined nests and 2 (maybe 3?) of the nests that drop locusts with every hit, and I walked out with 3 Jonas parts.

This update took away a lot of the lag I had. Especially lessened the freezes and mini stutters to a significant degree. Phew. That was annoying. Well done.

So it wasn't the BIOS update after all. Good to know because I don't want to fuck with the BIOS.
