Glider Suit

  1. Various changes were made to the Glider to make it more fun and useful while trying to address some previous exploits. It will likely undergo more changes as we hear feedback and discover abuse cases.
  2. Restored the ability to control pitch so you can now glide up and down.
  3. Increased the max height to activate from 100m to 400m.
  4. Slowed the base glider speed down by around 40%.
  5. Added a drag component to the speed updates.
  6. The faster you are going, the more drag will slow you down.
  7. Prevents maintaining high speed for a long time after a dive.
  8. Reduced the minimum speed you can glide at before you stall to about 2m per second.
  9. Changed the dive angle and required dive time.

Glider Known Issues

  1. You can still gain height but it’s slow.
  2. You can still glide across half a server if you jump off a 400m spot.
  3. It’s hard to tell when you are about to stall.
  4. Sometimes at super slow speed you inexplicably corkscrew.
  5. Pressing the ’Dive’ button (Shift by default on PC) results in a weird sideways dive.

Loot Drops

  1. Blueprints for Lumberyard, Quarry, and Mine now drop. They have two new stats on them: Capacity (how much weight and stacks they can hold) and Gather Rate.

Resources

  1. Fish Oil drops from some fish which previously did not drop it.
  2. Stone Harvesting nodes in the Copper Region (Northwest) have been rebalanced and a set of changes are being tested.
  3. Iron is the most common metal now, and may be found in rocks in place of whatever metal may have been used before. Copper is the less common metal found primarily in this region.
  4. Geodes may now drop from rock. Using a Geode will destroy it and may give some limestone, rock salt, and/or a small amount of different gems and crystals. Geodes may only be gathered by hand or with Tames, not with the Quarry or Farmhouse.
  5. These changes will be moved to all regions after a period of testing.
