Beta Patch 0.9.19 - featuring many gameplay changes

Posted by on

Controls

  • AS ALWAYS, WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND RESETTING THE DEFAULT KEYBINDS AFTER EACH PATCH.
  • The keybinds for opening and closing the Buildings menu for Villagers has been condensed to a single hotkey.
  • Selecting buildings through Hotkeys will now cycle properly if you already have one of that type selected.
  • Clicking a unit in the grid will now select it, rather than change the highlighted unit.
  • Units on the grid are now displayed horizontally instead of vertically.

Gameplay

  • Aggressive Stance will now make units attack at 50% vision range instead of 100%.
  • Defensive Stance will now make units attack at 30% vision range instead of 50%.
  • Attack Move aggro range reduced from 50% vision range to 30% vision range.

  • Attack Move priority system has been reworked to function as follows: Military Units > Healing Units > Villagers > Trade Units > Buildings > Aggressive Wild Dinos > Neutral Wild Dinos.
  • Units will now switch targets according to the priority system when a new target enters the aggro range. This occurs both when performing an Attack Move or when no manual Attack command has been given.
  • Units will no longer automatically attack Neutral Dinos, unless they’re performing an Attack Move or if the Neutral Dino are already provoked.
  • Reduced the “leash” range for Defensive Stance from 30 to 10. This is how far they will wander from their point before returning to it.
  • Units will now take the size of Buildings into account to determine if they’re within attack range.
  • Starting amount of Villagers for default settings increased from 2 to 4.
  • Default Game setting for “Starting Resources” set to “High”. The setting for “Default” has been renamed to “Medium”.

  • Hunter Health reduced from 200 to 150.
  • Hunter vision range increased from 15 to 25 to conform with other units.
  • Medic vision range increased from 15 to 25 to conform with other units.

  • Shrines will now only be lost if an enemy stands on it and the original owner or their teammates has no units standing on it.

  • Building construction sites refund a percentage resources when destroyed before completion. The percentage is based on the amount of time until completed. (e.g. 5% progress will refund 95% of the resources).

Bugs

  • Removed an unused Hotkey from the menu (since last hotfix).
  • Changing unit stances and stop commands work on client now.
  • Fixed a bug where the Attack Move and automatic Aggro logic was not working properly.
  • Fixed a bug where buildings set to Defensive Stance would spawn units that are permanently in a return state.
  • Fixed a bug where the Trade Post rally flag could not be set when it is under construction.
  • Fixed a bug where units moving towards a Rally Flag on a different unit would stop movement when upgraded.
  • Fixed a bug where clicking on any entity with the Attack Move selected would cause the units to perform a normal Attack or Move Command.
  • Fixed a bug where units would not proceed their Attack Move command upon killing a target.
  • Fixed a bug where building construction yards would not remember the unit stance they were set to after completion.
  • Fixed a bug where issuing attack commands to Defensive units would cause the to go idle near the enemy.
  • Fixed a bug where you could select and cancel queued objects in a building not owned by you.
  • Fixed a bug where pressing the “Select all Military Units” hotkey would not select Healers.
  • Fixed a bug where you could select and cancel the units in a building you didn’t own.
  • Fixed a bug where Villagers would have the same armour as a previously selected building.
  • Fixed a bug where villagers weren’t marked as idle when assigned to a Farm when no available farm spaces are available.
  • Fixed a bug where the HUD would remain visible after a game.
  • The HUD elements in the upper corners will now stay there when scaled.
  • Fixed a bug where pressing a hotkey and Right Click in the same frame would cancel units in the queue.
  • Fixed a bug where pressing the “Select Trade Post” hotkey would not work.
  • Fixed a bug where switching different categories in the “Controls” menu would cause graphical issues.


Miscellaneous Improvements

  • A button was added to join us on Discord on the Title Screen.

  • Fixed a typo in the AI Surrender Message.
  • Improved the algorithm for Medics to search for targets to heal.

  • Added a setting to hide all Control Group buttons.
  • Added a setting to disable UI Tooltips.
  • Added a setting to disable Game related Tooltips.

  • Pressing the “Select Chieftain” hotkey should no longer snap the camera to them.

  • Having unfinished buildings in your selection will no longer set these as the primary building, preventing you from creating units in the ones that are finished.

  • Switching categories in the “Controls” menu will now reset the slider to the top.

  • Hovering over the population UI element will show how many Military and Villager Units you own in the tooltip.
