17.2 experimental is out

Post by Boss Llama » Sat Feb 09, 2019 8:42 am

Though from what they've said, there weren't supposed to be any notable changes to the RWG, initial player reports on Reddit indicate that there are in fact some significant changes and improvements. This is still the experimental build, not the stable, so probably best to wait a little, but here are the notes thusfar:

We added some new game options including:
Blood Moon Frequency
This option allows the player to set a minimum amount of days for when the blood moon hordes appears.

Blood Moon Range
When this setting is enabled the player can make a min/max random blood moon range.

You can now edit the serverconfig.xml to allow multiple landclaims

XP Multiplier
Players can increase or decrease the overall experience gained.

We have added several new player and ai block damage options
For serverowners:
Added: serverconfig property "UserDataFolder" to specify where all generated data on the server is stored, including generated RWG worlds
Added: new properties “XPMultiplier”, “BlockDamagePlayer”, “BlockDamageAI”, “BlockDamageAIBM”
Removed: old properties “BlockDurabilityModifier”, “ZombiesRun”
Changed: TerminalWindowEnabled default is set to true

Please be sure you are using these properties in your serverconfig.xml:

<property name="BloodMoonFrequency" value="7" /> <!-- What frequency (in days) should a blood moon take place -->
<property name="BloodMoonRange" value="0" /> <!-- How many days can the actual blood moon day randomly deviate from the above setting. Setting this to 0 makes blood moons happen exactly each Nth day as specified in BloodMoonFrequency -->
<property name="LandClaimCount" value="1"/> <!-- Maximum allowed land claims per player. -->
<property name="BlockDamagePlayer" value="25" /> <!-- How much damage do players to blocks (percentage in whole numbers) -->
<property name="BlockDamageAI" value="100" /> <!-- How much damage do AIs to blocks (percentage in whole numbers) -->
<property name="BlockDamageAIBM" value="100" /> <!-- How much damage do AIs during blood moons to blocks (percentage in whole numbers) -->
<property name="XPMultiplier" value="100" /> <!-- XP gain multiplier (percentage in whole numbers) -->
Option to disable texture streaming
Sleeper check if chunk ready for spawning
Launcher cleanup function for generated RWG worlds
Hits between animals of the same exact class are ignored
Log message for how much XP you got from different sources during your last level

Good to see a little bit of optimization happening in there. I know the game has very eccentric performance characteristics, in terms of some computers it works totally fine, while on other equally powerful systems it is unplayable. Hopefully this includes work towards fixing that.

FYI, for anybody unaware - the server has been updated to 17.2 b27, and the map has been pulled back to a 6x6 to avoid the somewhat insane sprawl of last time.

Many thanks to Stevo for the update!
