Homesteading part 2 & Combat update, stable! (1.16.0)

Dear Homesteaders
v1.16.0, a stable release, can now be downloaded through the account manager.

This is it community. v1.16 looks stable enough to me. There are still bugs, but I estimate there's now less than in 1.15.10. This major update contains over 300 features, tweaks and fixes. It's been quite a monumental task to get here. As always, it would not have been possible with the incredible amounts of feedback and bug reports by you, the community. I'm very grateful for your support, thank you so much! 💚

The theme of this update did morph a bit during development. We originally wanted to complete some of the homesteading features that didn't make it into 1.15, but now also contains some major rework on how drifters spawn and behave as well as major changes to the games combat. While nothing is ever set in stone, I do hope these combat changes sufficiently address some of the shortcomings that a part of our community (rightfully) critized.

Looking forward, the VS Team will focus on a new main game trailer and then begin work on 1.17. Our main topics for the next update are De-Jank and Story Content. We'd like to address some of the unintuive and half finished parts of the game and get to work on the first main story event. Definitely lots more exciting new stuff to be worked on there!

Until then, the VS Team is happy to present you: Version 1.16 - Homesteading part 2 and Combat update! 🎉

Oh and please Note, in about one Week, we'll slightly increase the price of the game, by about 3-4 USD

Note2: You can still player your old 1.15 worlds with 1.16. Only two things are not backwards compatible - liquids stored in buckets and barrels will be lost and the new content such as mushrooms will only generate in new chunks.

API Updates

  • Feature: Some simple implementation of a generic multiblock system, to hopefully avoid custom multiblocking everywhere. Currently used for the distillery.
  • Feature: Added capi.Gui.LoadSvg() and capi.Gui.LoadSvgWithPadding() which allows for use of external SVG vector files to be loaded. For a first code sample, check out ItemProspectingPick.cs
  • Feature: Improved mounting system. Should now be properly network synced \o/
    • Sneak to unmount a IMountable is no longer hardcoded. It must now be handled by the IMountable itself, see BEBed.cs as example.
  • Feature: Ability for custom gui/fp itemstack renderers, register via api.Event.RegisterItemstackRenderer()
  • Feature: *byType precedence: For the Json assets blocktype, itemtype and entitytype, can now define an attribute as well as a *byType attribute, whereas the latter takes precedence, e.g. stackSize: 32 would be overwritten by stackSizeByType: { "*": 16 }
  • Feature: Explosion code upgrades
    • Explosions radii have an upper limit, which is now doubled, reaching it nonetheless now throws a more informative exception
    • Fixed particle lag and upper cap issues, as they now spawn async
    • Fixed a crash in the lighting engine when explosions go beyond chunk boundaries
    • Added blockDropChanceMultiplier argument to CreateExplosion() to reduce block drops by explosions (large explosions drop *a lot* of blocks)
  • Feature: .gltf models now support most flags
  • Feature: Added api.Render.RenderItemStackToAtlas(), allows rendering of an itemstack into a texture atlas
  • Feature: Can now set amount of inventory columns for GenericTypedContainer blocks
  • Feature: Add initialDelayOffsetMs arg to Event.RegisterGameTickListener() to mitigate lag spikes from many listeners running code at the same time
  • Feature: Added withInheritance argument to api.ModLoader.GetModSystem()
  • Feature: Added new render stage EnumRenderStage.AfterBlit
  • Feature: Added client side api death event
  • Feature: Added sapi.HandleCommand() to run a custom command through code
  • Feature: In the json assets, can now define a "ucontents" property to define contents of containers. Example implementation: A wood bucket filled with water in the creative inventory
  • Feature: New JSON Patch operation "addeach" allows inserting/appending of multiple elements in one operation. (the value must be an array)
  • Feature: Added Block.PriorityInteract property to be able to sneak interact with a block before sneak interacting with the currently held item. Used for the new crate.
  • Refactor: Recipe systems are no longer engine exclusive. All recipe systems (except the grid recipes) are now moved from api/engine to the survival mod. This means:
    • If you need to look up cooking recipes, reference VSSurvivalMod.dll and exchange world.CookingRecipes with "Api.ModLoader.GetModSystem<RecipeRegistry>().CookingRecipes" or through the helper method "Api.CookingRecipes()"
    • If you only add cooking recipe json files, no changes are required
    • You can now add your own recipe system. Check out RecipeRegistry.cs for reference (still needs handbook support, though)
  • Refactor: All Barrel recipes that have liquids as input or output, instead of quantity and stacksize respectively, these should now define "litres". However for backwards compatibility, if the recipe loader encounters a liquid ingredient or output without a litres definition, it will assume quantity/stacksize = litres and log a warning.
  • Refactor: Rename BlockLiquidContainerBase.GetInContainerProps to BlockLiquidContainerBase.GetContainableProps
  • Refactor: The block code for planks has changed from planks-{wood} to planks-{wood}-hor

Thank you! You are amazing at what you do! 👏 I didn't think i'll start new world after 1.16, but the changes are so big that i think in will do that after all just to have more justified feedback about early game, which was/is my main concern when offering this game to my friends who are lazy at looking for tutorials and bad at reading guides in english thus avoiding this great game. :)

This update is a HUGE downgrade. Performance took a big hit,  can't walk with map open, sword swing is a massive nerf to swords because of lower dps, auction house is basically unusable due to absolutely massive taxes on both both ends and overall nothing meaninful was added while the update still took months to come out.

I'll increase the sword swing speed by 25% next release

Hey, take a look at the class changes too, Hunter & ranged weapons seem to be the PvP/PvE meta now that the Hunter class has a 20% ranged bonus alongside the non-class specific 50% charge speed buff. As a result of these changes, a Hunter will often out-DPS a Blackguard in any fight.
