v1.19.5 - YABATP stable


Recommended Posts

Dear Extraordinary Survivalists
v1.19.5, a stable release, is now available to download through the account manager.

This is likely the last major bugfix patch for 1.19 - just yesterday I have asked our coding team to begin prioritizing tasks for the upcoming 1.20 update that revolves around the second main story event. This part of the story will involve a lot of travel and consequently will require new systems and experiences to make traveling more engaging.

Question: Some buddies and I are looking to get back into VS, and if we build a world and get things going, will we be able to enjoy the changed in 1.20 without having to start over/lose progress?

Much like in previous updates the game will stay compatible with old world saves, but new content might not generate or only generate in new chunks.

And as well as mods potentially. This is where hopefully the mod authors update their amazing mods to work with the latest version.

Thanks for continuing to develop VS. I appreciate it, even though it's all these years later. The game is amazing!

A travel-focused update is great news in my book. Exploring is something I enjoy immensely, yet a nomadic lifestyle is not very well supported by the game at the moment.

I haven't been following updates very closely. Did anything get done to fix wolves and the like spawning on your head and/or being so goddamn aggressive? Last time I tried the game with my group, we got quite frustrated by the inability to build a base where we'd be secure from wolves, the only solution was to settle outside any kind of forest. The game seemed to have two settings, "impossibly hard" or "laughably easy", with nothing in between... at least in terms of mobs.

Perhaps you can use the travel focus as an excuse to make animals travel as well. And that would mean giving them purpose. The most sedentary would just move between their lair (the place they'd be most aggressive around), and eating/hunting grounds and watering holes. Others might migrate. It would be quite majestic to see a flock of migrating geese or a herd of travelling buffalo. Scratch that, it would be friggin' amazing and would push the game far beyond the kind of Minecraft-style "toy world" we're still stuck with. It would feel like the world has a life of its own and would invite you to watch in awe.

Plus, from the practical side, you could even travel alongside a pack of buffalo or similar animals for a while. Provided you don't provoke them, they might act as a deterrent for other, more unpleasant wildlife.

Another travel-related thing is cave exploration. Compared to Minecraft, I've found it a bit unpleasant in VS, because you have less nice scenery (Minecraft caves with both water and lava falls are hard to beat, as well as their new lush caves) and you constantly get harassed by mobs. I think recent updates have introduced more variation in mob density? But anyways, that something to consider. Letting the player have a cool underground exploration experience that feels more like Jules Vernes' Journey to the Center of the Earth than constant tower defense would be a net plus for the game. A sense of danger and occasional tough fights are both fine, but constant harassment by spam mobs which push you to exploit the building mechanics doesn't do much for the atmosphere of the game.
