New stable, VS Mod DB, v1.15 sneak peek (v1.14.8)


Recommended Posts

Dear Wintery Community
v1.14.8, a stable release, can now be downloaded through the account manager.

Whats new in v1.14.8
This update should again fix a lot of easy to fix or major bugs. As always, we hope this is the last stability update for v1.14 :D
This update also has the chance of improving compatibility with MacOS and Linux/Wayland! Please do let us know if it did help for you in #gamedev on discord.

The Vintage Story Mod Database!
We have now launched an official modding database where every player can upload and download mods. We call it the VS Mod DB, go check it out! It connects to your game account, so no separate sign up required. We plan to tightly integrate it into the game client, to eventually blur the line on what is vanilla content and what is modded content.

Whats new in the upcoming v1.15
Radfast did some excellent work on improving performance in several key areas of the game. Redram and Balduranne did some really neat stuff, see images below. Hayden will bestow us with some great new music tracks, Luke is adding new assets and animations, and Tyron was slacking and busy with VS Mod DB :D
I'll give you a sneak peek look at some of the new stuff - replacing the tree saplings with seeds, a distiller concept and giving the trader caravans some actual (but static) wheels.
