    Crush

    Thanks for the report, i've now fixed some crashes related to the windmill rotor. Please be aware though that these blocks are part of the unfinished mechanical power network.

    Problem on knapping and clay forming on French version

    Oh could you check if its correct in the translations system? => https://vintagestory.oneskyapp.com/collaboration/translate/project/project/150774/language/5#/
  3. True, thats a weird email response. I'll forward it to the websoftware devs.

    crash

    Thanks for the report, could you explain what you did just before the crash?
  5. For version 1.9 we'll be adding traders which will spawn inside trader huts or other small structures, such as market stands. To fit with the them they should be medieval style and fairly smallish. @Ivan already built a couple of such huts, but it can never hurt to see what others can build, so if you feel like contributing show us your trader structures! [Edit 22.Jan:] To clarify, buildings will only be added after approval of the Team.

    Vintage Story: Fall Wishlist

    I think its that time again. Let's see what the community deems most important to work on next! I suppose there is no use of polling on the overall direction, the march wish list showed an overwhelming desire for survival features. Instead let's use the 3 questions limit to offer you the choice to set your nr.1, nr.2 and nr.3 priority!
  8. Fancy people version 1.8.6, a stable release, is now ready for download in the account manager. This update fixes minor issues for mac os users as well as with the games frame rate and horizon fog. Calling out all Mac OS Users: I noticed the in-game mouse position seemed to be off by 5 pixels vertically (e.g. a button click event was only registered 5 pixels lower), and some texts were not vertically centered. I have added corrections for this now. Please let me know if this caused any issues for you. Game updates Tweak: Mouse smoothing now depends on frame rate Tweak: Found and mitigated a significant performance drain in the cloud system. Most notable on high view distances. See below. Fixed: The wavy horizon fog motion went super speed at high frame rates. Fixed: Might fix water blocks rarely dropping itself Fixed: Falling sand and gravel sometimes floating on top of water Frame rate on v1.8.5, right after upping to 1024 view distance Frame rate on v1.8.6, right after upping to 1024 view distance

  10. My fellow dedicated Vintarians, version 1.8.4, a stable release, is now ready for download in the account manager. In this version I ended up heavily tweaking the color, brightness,contrast and blending of the games ambient, fog and cloud system, as it was still not quite the way I envisioned. It may very well be that some colors are thrown out of balance again, please do let me know if that occurs to you. Other than that I do hope that particularly the blending of far terrain and fog is notably improved as well as the blending of fog against the sky. The fog near the horizon no longer follows a flat line but is wavy and in motion, albeit very subtly (see below screenshot). Let's see how that feels during gameplay. Version 1.8.4 should also be the first version that finally works for MacOS, sorry about that >.> As always, your feedback and bug reports are invaluable to the development of the game, thank you so much for your continuous diligence in playing and testing the Vintage Story [Edit:] Uploaded v1.8.5 to fix a server startup issue. Game updates Feature: ModMaker.exe now ships with the game. This small tool detects any .json file that you may have modified in your assets folder and creates a mod from those changes. This way, if you install an update of VS, those changes are not lost. Tweak: Tweaked color, contrast, brightness, etc. for the ingame fog, sky, ambient and cloud system Fixed: MacOS version still crashing Fixed: Water ambient not applied when inside underwater reeds or seaweed Fixed: Vertical scrolling in the handbook not working correctly Fixed: Some non-standard GUI scale issues. Particularly the settings screen should behave nicer at different gui scales. Fixed: A client thread crash did not exit the game as it should

  12. Most valued players,version 1.8.2, a stable release, is now ready for download in the account manager. Looks like we got a pretty stable state already. Here's a few more notable bug fixes and tweaks. Also you can now craft basalt brick blocks, stairs and slabs as well as increased spear damage output. [Edit:] The v1.8.2 windows updater download has issues, so it's no longer available for download. Please use the full installer or wait until v1.8.3 [Edit 2:] v1.8.3 is now out. Fixes the windows updater, a basalt dupe glitch thing, water meeting lava creating unknown blocks and adds some debugging tools for land claims Game updates Tweak/Fixed: Basalt blocks were twice in the game, this will break your previously collected basalt blocks, sorry about that. Therefore you can now craft basalt brick blocks, stairs and slabs in survival mode. Tweak: Significantly boosted melee damage output of low tier spears, significantly boosted thrown damage output for all spears Tweak: Updated language files to latest version Tweak: Mantle block now makes the same sounds as other rock Fixed: MacOS version not starting at all Fixed: Incorrect bamboo sapling model Fixed: Some blocks craftable that shouldn't be (yet) Fixed: Item dupe bug on the crafting output slot Fixed: Visual oddities when looking at distant berry bushes and flowers

    Linux: Critical Error: Requested GraphicsMode Not Available

    Ow, I actually ship the game with a custom build of OpenTK. Seems like I need to adapt authors and version numbers there still. What kind of sanity checks would be needed in opentk?

    Ability to grow big trees, e.g. in native biome

    It's a neat idea though to have the tree sizes depend on the habitability

    Roadmap thread?

    Yea I think 1.8 will be stable in a couple of days.

    error during shot a arrow

    Looks like its the same crash as you posted before
  22. Tyron

    error during the game

    Oh wow, what an unexpected place for it to crash. Thank you for the report! I will add some code to help me track down this issue.
  23. Most valued players, version 1.8-rc.1 to 3, a testing release, is now ready for download in the account manager. Make a backup of your old world before updated. Also remember to apply the remappings. Originally I wanted to work on world generation related features, but decided to shove in an update to improve the overall user experience of the game. One of the most requested UX feature by you, the community, was to have some way of looking up crafting recipes in-game, the ability to do multiplayer more easily and a left hand slot for light sources. Furthermore, over the months we have accumulated quite a list of major issues on the mac OS version, most of which are caused by 3rd party libraries. Principal rich text support was another feature that I believe will greatly improve the user experience in the long term. All of these points, and more, have been addressed in version 1.8. [Edit:] Released rc.2 to fix the cooking crash and players able to continue walking after they died. [Edit:] Released rc.3 to fix the the game not launching on linux . The mod api Amongst a bunch of mod api updates, I also dropped the code obfuscation for another 40.000 lines of engine code, which should give modders another edge of power and control over the game engine. This means from a grand total of ~240.000 lines of code that are compiled for each release 140.000 lines of code are under a readable source license and on github (vsapi, vsessentialsmod, vssurvivalmod) for everyone to take a peek 47.000 lines of code are not obfuscated, meaning with an off-the-shelf decompiler you can look at the code, albeit without code comments 50.000 lines of code remain obfuscated, at least half of which I still plan to drop the obfuscation for No time to loose As always, this update took way longer than what I would have hoped for. The improved macOS support alone about 30 hours of my time. Nevertheless, I did and always will continue to strive to bring you new updates as fast as possible, while still ensuring that I can also do so in the long term. As hinted in the last updates my wife Saraty and I are currently forced to prioritize our health issues over everything else, of which there are bunch.... not counting our other adult responsibilities of ensuring a livable income and raising a child. Le sigh. Screenshots Butterflies now spawn in the world All creatures now have a death animation and linger around. Drops need to be harvested from their dead bodies. Unharvested dead animals will decay to bones after 3 days, bones decay after another 3. A survival handbook that lets you look up all blocks and items and their crafting recipes. Press 'H' to open. Improved Hotbar UI and left hand slot. The left hand slot can only hold light sources right now. "Open To Internet" for easy multiplayer setups Game updates Feature: Butterflies flutter around to brighten up your day Feature: Can now craft stone bricks and polished rock in survival mode (see recipes below) Feature: Improved creature death. Killed creatures no long poof out of existence, they leave a carcass behind that can be harvested for resources and will eventually decay when left untouched. Dead creatures decay to bones after 3 days. Bones decay after another 3. Feature: Ingame Block and Item Handbook Let's you look up crafting recipes, what items are used for and how to obtain them. Open by typing 'H' You can also mouse over an item in your inventory to open the detail page of that item by pressing ‘H’ Please note, this feature is a work in progress and thus not all information is listed there yet Feature: Improved macOS Support Fixed: Typing special letters not fully supported (i.e. could not type @ on german keyboards) Fixed: Copy&Paste not working Fixed: While ingame shaking the mouse cursor enabled the "Shake mouse pointer to locate" feature of macOS Fixed: While ingame moving the mouse cursor quickly caused it to escape the game window and interact with the desktop Fixed: Game icon in the menu bar very blurry Fixed: Game not using custom cursor graphics Fixed: Crash reporter not launching and "Client Thread crash" message box crashing the game Feature: Simplified hotbar - removed username and exp bar. Health and Saturation numbers now visible only when hovered over with the mouse cursor Feature: Added left hand slot. Can only hold light sources and holding an item in your left hand drains hunger 25% faster Feature: Implemented UPnP and NAT-PMP discovery. Players can now "Open To Internet" \o/ Feature: Added creature bots for creative mode and/or video making (ask tyron if you want to use them) Feature: Can now left click into the empty area of the creative dialog to get rid of items (previously needed to click on a slot) Feature: When pressing Q or shift+q to drop items and hovering a slot the items of that hovered slot are dropped instead Feature: Rich text support in some selected areas Feature: Added context sensitive cursors icons. Text fields now have a text cursor and rich text links now have a finger cursor Feature: The screens single player, multiplayer and mod manager now resize to fit the window height Feature: Main screen background image now pans and zooms weirdly and no longer gets stretched or squeezed when the window is resized Feature: Added server setting to disable fire spreading Tweak: Gameplay balancing changes Rebalanced player nutrition system. Nutrients should drain slower now. Locusts now spawn only below y < 93 Eating cooked meals now have double the saturation loss delay (=doubled the time when saturation will start dropping again) Tweak: Categorized keyboard controls list, should be now more intuitive to read Tweak: Jumping makes the first person held items lag behind for more immersion Tweak: Bamboo blocks can no longer be used as a replacement for wooden planks during crafting Tweak: Notably improved performance in case where there are hundreds of entities in small spaces Tweak: Removed fast animations settings, now always on fancy animations. Sorry low end users. Therefore fancy animations are now slightly faster and aforementioned gains should mitigate the performance drop. Fancy animations was required for other features to work. Tweak: Significantly improve server performance when there is thousands or tens of thousands of land claims. Tweak: Small performance improvement on the particle system Tweak: Dropped items now have the players velocity added Tweak: /land info command now a bit more informative. Added server privilege debug mode Tweak: Tool racks now show their contents in the block info Tweak: Made default dropped ground transform larger, made default fp held block transform larger Tweak: Breaking snow/coal layers in creative mode now breaks all of them Tweak: The game tries to pre-select a more suitable window width/height and GUI scale on the very first startup Tweak: The settings tab now has toggle buttons instead of plain text buttons because they were not intuitively recognizable as tabs Tweak: In the settings interface tab, add a notice that the translations are community created and may be incomplete Tweak: More api documentation and language entries Tweak: Minor performance improvements Tweak: Reduce CPU overhead for occlusion culling by 25% but might overcull. We need to test and see how well it works. Tweak: copygirls floaty gui tweaks Floaty GUIs have been re-positioned a little to show up closer to the center of the block. Holding Ctrl to move the view while block dialogs are open has been removed, but replaced with the ability to hold Alt while in mouse-look to get the cursor back temporarily This works well with the new GUI Mouse Lock setting which you can find under "Interface" just below Floaty GUIs. Having both enabled allows you to open in-world block GUIs like containers, fire pits and the quern, without the game taking away your character's camera controls. You can then move items between dialogs using your crosshairs or use the previously mentioned Alt key method which is the only way interact with your hotbar and inventory with the new settings on, currently. Sneaking while a dialog is opened is now possible again to allow for sneak-interactions with held blocks / items. Opening a dialog doesn't suddenly stop you from walking around Fixed: Incorrect textures on molds Fixed: Hitting straw dummies does not wobble for other players in multiplayer Fixed: Should fix some wonkiness with crucibles when placed down in creative mode Fixed: Charcoal pits not smoking until relogged Fixed: Fences not attaching to paper lanterns Fixed: Server crashing on some linux shells Fixed: Might fix server exception spam / crash in some rare situations Fixed: A crash when digging/building on y=0 Fixed: Standalone server not verifying player auth, added server config to disable it Fixed: A rare sqlite exception during server shutdown Fixed: Resetting key mapping not updating the player control keys until the game is reloaded Fixed: Should fix players able to sleep in beds they have no permission on (due to land claims) Fixed: Lanterns and chests having the wrong model/texture for other players in multiplayer right after placing them Fixed: Eliminated a bunch of memory leaks Fixed: After dying and reviving the player was stuck in the death animation until restart Fixed: Mods are now unpacked outside the temp folder. This should fix some server runtime issues on certain linux systems as well as mod loading issues on clients Fixed: Microblock chisel textured the log wrongly Fixed: Carpets popping off when trying to place them on upside down slabs Fixed: CTRL+C on Linux and Mac not firing proper server shutdown sequence Fixed: Memory leak related to chest GUIs Fixed: Sign texts not showing after being imported by worldediit Fixed: Command .noclip crashing the game Fixed: Crucible empty after placing and picking it up again Modding updates Feature: Variant placeholders (e.g. {rock}) in blocktypes, itemtypes and entitytpyes can now be used everywhere. Feature: Added ability for items to add custom journal texts Tweak: Made chiseled blocks resistant against blockid changes (now stores block codes instead of block ids) Tweak: Made saplings more easily moddable. Can now supply treegen code in the sapling json file Tweak: Added trailer effects mod for the last scene of the trailer. Can be activated with /slomo, /glitch and /rain Fixed: Don't crash and instead log a readable error if a tree generator code has no associated registered tree generator Fixed: Game crashing on invalid texture definitions. Now logs an error instead Mod api code changes Feature: Added EntitySpawn and EntityDespawn events to the client and server event api Feature: Added CollectibleObject.GetHeldItemName() for custom block/item names Feature: Added sound memory leak debugging Tweak: Implemented a common method for vertex warping for all shaders. Moved all shader uniforms into IRenderAPI.ShaderUniforms Tweak: Entity behavior classes CollectEntities, EmotionStates and Health are now public Tweak: Game time speed is now a float instead of an int. Added a global time speed modifier: GlobalConstants.OverallSpeedMultiplier Tweak: copygirls inventory tweaks Create slot indexer (get and set) for inventories Tweaks to IInventory Now has this[slotId] indexer which can also be set! Now also an IReadOnlyCollection<ItemSlot> (Which means we can now do foreach (var slot in inventory) { ... }) Marked GetSlot and QuantitySlots obsolete Tweak: Improve ActiveHotbarSlotChanged event This event can now be cancelled on both the client and server sides. Removed the old ActiveHotbarSlotChangedEvent / ChangedActiveHotbarSlot from APIs. Removed: Ditched IEntity, IEntityAgent, IEntityPlayer and IEntityNpc. Use Entity, EntityAgent, EntityPlayer and EntityNPC directly instead New Crafting Recipes
  24. Yea, Epic game store looks the best from all of them.

    Hardships

    Dear Community, I would like to provide you with an update on what has been happening so far and where Vintage Story is currently standing. Saraty and me have been having a number of hardships so we've been feeling pretty drained the last dozen days and could only get very little done on the game. Yet as always, our plans remain unchanged. We hope that in a few days we will be able to go back to a decent level of productivity and resume work on version 1.8. The upcoming update will focus on making some parts of the game feel more complete. It contains a lot of stability improvements for MacOS users, an ingame recipe lookup (comparable to minecrafts JEI/NEI mods), support for rich text in some selective areas and a few pretties Sneak preview of the ingame recipe book: Anyhow, we hope that we can release version 1.8 and then focus on the promised world gen changes and hopefully also some progress on mechanical power. Until then we wish you happy gaming! - Tyron View full record
