17.1 Patch Notes

We've got another patch! Looks like this should work just fine with the existing server/map, we just need to update. Only issue noted with that is the potential for the food/water HUD to be messed up, (which dying fixes apparently). Here are the official notes:

Hey Survivalist,

We’ve just released Alpha 17.1 Experimental B8 and could really use your help finding the last remaining big issues.

To improve stamina players now start with 150 food which is now shown in the hud and menu to communicate you can overeat and not waste food.

When players stamina is between 100 and 150, there are no detrimental stamina effects.

Strength requirements for the Sexual Tyrannosaurus perk have been lowered and we have made the description clear that it does reduce mining stamina costs as well as melee costs. We moved it from the combat perk section to a new section called general strength perks. We’ve reduced the stamina cost of all tools. We’ve also reduced stone tool stamina penalties.

Water now goes to 150%, and until the water debuff comes on screen at 75% water, you will experience no stamina regeneration penalties.

For builders, we have bolstered XP for harvesting and mining substantially allowing for support roles to keep up with combat and scavenger roles.

Is there anything in there worth switching the server to the experimental branch, or should we wait for the stable update?

I favor staying with stable, but can go either way.

Of course there is one thing I like: 'Death penalty cannot stack on repeated deaths'...but that's just me. :lol:

There are definitely some temptations with the new patch notes, but nothing critical I don't think. I'm ok with sticking stable for the moment!
