  • Tweak: Distant rifts are now less visible
  • Tweak: Can now do increment time via command in months and years /time add 2 years or /time add 2 months
  • Tweak: Reduced creature aggro sound rate if they cannot find a path. Should mitigate endless drifter growling around your base.
  • Tweak: Gameplay balancing
    • Halved produce drop rate on wild crops (they were doubled in 1.16, unintentionally)
    • Acacia trees now also spawn resin
    • Reduced mushroom spawning during worldgen by 20% and they stay harvestable less longer (30 days -> 20 days)
    • The Bell alarm mob spawning rate now scales with the amount of nearby players
    • The hacking spear can now also be made from bisbronze and tinbronze
    • Increased fruit tree cutting growth chance (25% -> 40%)
    • Increase resin spawn chance 2.5-fold
    • Increased rusty gear drop rate for drifters (normal: 0% -> 1%, deep: 2% -> 3%, tainted 5%->7%, corrupt 7%->10%, nightmare 10%->20%)
    • Beds now stack (1 -> 2)
  • Tweak/Fixed: Avoid game crashing on corrupted chiseled blocks
  • Tweak: More informative fruitpress block info hud text
  • Tweak: Further optimized entity physics simulation for overall improved game performance when lots of entities are loaded (Technical info: Skip loading all nearby block collision boxes if entity didn't move a full block since last tick)
  • Tweak: Scythe rework

  • Tweak: Added "Tree state" info to fruit tree blocks to help debug non-fruiting trees. A correctly behaving tree should loop through these states throughout a year: Young, Flowering, Fruiting, Ripe, Empty, EnterDormancy, Dormant, DormantVernalized. Please help me figure out where it gets stuck.

  • Tweak: Free-floating vines now slowly disappear over time
  • Tweak: Crocks now use vegetable labels for meals that have 3 or 4 of the same ingredient

  • Fixed: Might fix some trader carts cut in half on world generation
  • Fixed: Should fix game no longer launching on MacOS
  • Fixed: Able to add chiseled blocks as material on chiseled blocks, producing unknown textures

  • Fixed: Small memory leak in crates
  • Fixed: Some derp with fruit tree branches not regrowing after being cut
  • Fixed: Pathfinding issues:
    • Entities that have fall damage would be willing to fall from greater heights instead of the opposite effect (but did add a reckless attribute so drifters still fall from large heights)
    • Creatures believed they could walk through diagonal openings. Should mitigate cases where drifters bunch up in corners
    • Potentially fixes hares "leaping" fences in winter when they should not [Detail: fixes a pathfinding issue where creatures believed they could step high off a low block such as snow layer]
    • Chickens looking for a Henbox to lay in are now less likely to give up when half-way there

Ah okay, so I guess I will keep a bowl of aqua vita in the chest too to make them quickly

I wish there was some way to farm for a renewable healing item, like some plant other than horsetail that you can grow. Maybe someone you can do only late game.

You can make healing item with sulfur+linen and honey. it's the best in game. It renewable and doesn't dry like bandages.

I have reached steel age and still havent found any sulfur yet

how do you find loads of sulfur?

Prospecting and luck. It's a rare ore sometimes found in sedimentary rock, and definitely not renewable. Not sure what Irulana meant.

That said, horsetail is renewable. The method is just a bit weird. When you leave farmland fallow, there is a chance that, over time, grass will spawn on it. And rarely, horsetail may spawn instead of grass. So, tilling a large amount of farmland and checking it once an ingame month will give you a small income of horsetail (and a lot of grass for animal feed as well).

Try search sandstone and limestone areas. If you don't have any around base, try translocators. Nice set of translocators around your base is important to get many rare resources. It's renawable for me as the biggest cost is flax and honey. We travel a lot and rarely harvest sulfur, we usally left it behind, as the receipt don't use it much, You don't need many of that. Once you find a region with sulfur it would last for loooong time.

I have noticed the horsetail growing but its too rare. i have collected them separately and i only got about 10 from the fields

I wish some kind of healing plant would be farmable properly

It is found in chert too? cause thats the type of rock that my base has

Yes it is possible, you should check it with prospecting pick. If you wish to know if specific stone has ores you need it's all in handbook (check blocks list) you can type stone name to list all ores, or type ore (sulfur for example) and it will list all stone types that can have it.

I was hoping this would mean that you would no longer need an insulating layer of blocks under the roof to prevent the hunger penalty in winter, but apparently not. I'm not sure what this change affects, maybe attaching lanterns or something?

I updated today and one thing I really like about the update is I can stay in creative and chisel, and multiblock  I can simply add them through the plus symbol which I couldn't do before.

I hope this was intended feature not a bug.

Thanks that is great.

I wonder if this is a feature too? I sorta I did it accidentally. The wiki said don't use 4 blocks. Do you know what happens or is this new thing we can do? Here is example of my new kitchen block.

Thank you that is amazing fact to know. Now I am going to go absolutely nuts with 16 color chisel stuff;)

Maybe I will just make my own creative food dishes and numerous other things:)

I just finished chimney pipe boy that was hard because I kept messing up.

Hope so next update will be soon especially with this optimalizations there is talk about on discord because my game again went very laggy and this is quite tiresome xD 

Here I just thought it was due to me adding to many mods. I had my first crash last night. The lag getting pretty intense. I guess I need to go weeding out unessential mods now.
