[Game Update] - 238439

Release Date: 10/22/2017

This is a hotfix release.

Update Information:

Another batch of bug fixes to the Shipwrecked beta. I think the most noticeable one will be that Crocodogs and Sharx shouldn't spawn and attack the player seemingly at random now, caused by the cormorants dropping roe on the water as they naturally do. Also, resurrection stones were saving players who drowned at sea, but were not being used up in the process, so I hope no one got too used to that. 

There is a bug with Tar Extractors producing endless tar even when turned off that I have not been able to reproduce on my end. I have some code in that I'm hoping will help stop it from happening but without knowing the real cause it's hard to say. If someone is able to reproduce this error, please let us know what your steps are. 

This update is live on the "beta" build on Steam.

Change List:

  • Fixed a bug where crafted items would come out wet.
  • Coral reef’s grow time reloads properly now.
  • Dropping roe into the water won’t spawn sharx on the player (the cormorants were being trolls).
  • Growables can now advance multiple states when off screen instead of one maximum.
  • Resurrection stones will now work properly when a player drowns.
