It’s patch time again, and we have a bunch of cool new stuff for you! Tweaks, bug fixes, and the first new enemy! Also, along with these smaller updates, we are now initiating some larger content and feature development. More on this later, when we reveal a larger roadmap of things to come.
---COMMUNITY REQUESTED FIXES---
BOSCO JOINS YOU IF YOU START A HOSTED GAME ALONE
A very popular request from the community has been for Bosco to join you when you start hosting a game. This way you can start mining with Bosco assisting you, while you wait for your friends or strangers to join your game. We have done a rough first implementation with no bells and whistles, and it works like this:
Bosco joins you when you start hosting a public/ private game and head in alone.
When the first a player joins your game, Bosco will self-destruct for that game session.
Jadiz has been one of the hardest crafting materials to collect and we have buffed it! Jadiz will now spawn a bit more often in the Crystalline Caverns region and we have changed the value range of it from 7-18 to 10-18.
WANT NICE CLEAN SCREEN SHOTS?
Some of you have been requesting been able to take nice clean screenshot and we actually also need that feature! Now you can Hold [H] to toggle the HUD on/off.
NEW ENEMY: SAY HELLO TO THE MACTERA SPAWN!
The Mactera Spawn is our first proper flying enemy. It will attack from a distance using its vomit attack. Smack that Fly!
You can now come across strangely looking small tunnels coming out of the walls. Glyphid Swarmers live here. They are very territorial and will aggressively defend their nest! A simple advice: Avoid them!
CAVE LEECH LETS YOU GO “GENTLY” WHEN IT DIES!
Previously, when a dwarf was dropped from a dying Cave Leech, he might drop for a long distance, mysteriously taking no fall damage, which was as designed but seemed weird. Now the Cave Leech slackens its’ tongue and lowers you down more gently, making it seem more realistic that you don’t take fall damage.
DESTRUCTIBLE ARMOR ON GLYPHIDS!
Direct enough firepower to those pesky armor plates to shoot them off and expose the soft underbits underneath!
NEW PASSIVE CREATURE: IS IT A PLANE? IS IT A BIRD? NO IT‘S A FLYING JELLYFISH!
The Dense Biozone region of Hoxxes is now inhabited by large, passive, flying jellies.
MINERAL TRADE TERMINAL
In the Mineral Trade Terminal you can trade your credits for crafting materials, but be advised that materials are priced fairly exorbitantly. You can also sell your precious crafting materials for credits, but again don’t expect a fair price. Deep Rock Galactic are always trying to maximize their income even if it comes from its workers!
REVOLVER RELOAD ANIMATION
The Gunner’s Revolver now has a proper reload animation - as well as a cool gunslinger move when you try the reload while it’s fully reloaded.
Range on the dwarves’ flashlights has been tweaked down from 12.50m to 11.00m, making them a bit weaker.
Enemies are now less likely to go straight through thin cave walls.
M.U.L.E. SAFETY FIX
If for some reason the MULE does not find its way back to the Escape Pod, the doors will still open 15 seconds before countdown runs out.
