The Homesteading update, balance & stable patch (v1.15.3)


Recommended Posts

Dear Community
v1.15.3, a stable release, can now be downloaded through the account manager.

This should hopefully cover all remaining major issues and that some players were having. We'd still like to add a few bits of missing content in v1.15.4 and then move on to 1.16. 🎉

Just a quick question: What is meant with

  • Tweak: Removed halite, scoria and tuff dry stone. Scoria and Tuff will get re-added in the future.

Is halite really completely removed? If so: Why?!

Or should it be "halite [...] dry stone", which would be a special kind of halite (?)

Dry stone is an alternate form of cobblestone, made with a stone brick in the middle instead of clay. It seems that that, specifically, was removed, rather than the stones themselves.
