Hello visitor! A note about the contents of this wiki: Barotrauma is a game with several years' worth history as a free-download open source game, and this wiki has been written primarily based on this legacy version. As such, not all content is relevant to the Steam release. So please wait patiently as the contents are updated, and feel free to contribute new information once the Steam version of Barotrauma is released!

Hello there! We are conducting a survey to better understand the user experience in making a first edit. If you have ever made an edit on Gamepedia, please fill out the survey. Thank you!

The following lists the changelogs of every Steam release version of Barotrauma.

0.9.1.0[edit | edit source]

Released July 10th, 2019

Additions and changes:

  • Disabled riot shields for now (too much griefing potential).
  • Toolboxes can be fabricated and decontructed.
  • Nerfed nitroglycerin's structure damage and increased the impact tolerance from 4 to 6.
  • Made alien pistols a little less underwhelming (sounds, recoil, particle effects).
  • Deconstructors drop all items that are inside the deconstructed item. Previously they would just get destroyed, making it a potential exploit to destroy items that should not be possible to deconstruct.
  • Modified welding fuel tank and oxygen tank sprites a bit to differentiate them from each other a bit more.
  • Modified plasma cutter and welding tool sprites a bit to differentiate them from each other a bit more.
  • Diving suits play the warning beep when there's no tank in the suit (not just when the tank is running out).
  • Server list can be sorted according to ping, name, compatibility or any of the other property in the list.
  • Docking ports of the enemy submarine are not shown on the sonar during combat missions.
  • Recharge headset batteries between rounds in single player.
  • Disable status monitor displays when out of power.
  • Reduce server CPU usage.
  • Update ladder and gap references if a waypoint is moved around in the editor.
  • More descriptive error messages when publishing a Workshop item fails.
  • Allow selecting multiple files at once when adding files to a Workshop item.
  • Made the autogenerated submarine preview pictures larger.
  • The "Host server" menu remembers the previously used port numbers and the player count.
  • Restrict server names to a maximum of 60 characters.
  • Items now collide with platforms.
  • The game automatically opens the generated crash report when it crashes.
  • Added "setmaxplayers" command to the dedicated server.
  • Clients can change the server password using the command "setpassword" if they have a permission from the host.
  • Reduced the range of the sonar ping sound and added a more subtle ping sound that can be heard further away.
  • Watchmen now hold position when attacked.
  • Added a subtle glow to alien buttons to make them a bit more noticeable.
  • Items that are set to be hidden in-game can still be interacted with in the sub editor.
  • EXPERIMENTAL: option to disable rewiring items in multiplayer. At the moment the setting can only be changed by editing a parameter called "allowrewiring" in serversettings.xml.

Misc bugfixes:

  • Fixed the position of an outpost's docking port not being taken into account when determining how to place it in the level. Caused large submarines sometimes to collide with walls when docked to outposts where the port is offset from the center.
  • Fixed corrupted sub files causing crashes.
  • Fixed item editing HUD not appearing on any other item after one item has been selected in-game (e.g. editing the channel on a wifi component prevented editing other items).
  • Fixed ladders and other resizeable items reverting to their original size if they're resized and the sub is saved and reloaded.
  • Fixed inability to resize gaps in the sub editor after they've been placed.
  • Reactors take other power sources into account when calculating how much power they need to generate. Fixes overloads on Humpback when turning on the backup batteries and operating the reactor normally.
  • Fixed watchmen not retaliating when a character does very small amounts of damage to them.
  • Fixed bots being able to take handcuffs off from themselves.
  • Fixed waypoint and spawnpoints being selectable in the sub editor even if they're hidden.
  • Fixed deconstructing coilgun ammo boxes giving out more materials than the materials required to fabricate them.
  • Scrollbars can only be dragged if the mouse button is pressed down while the cursor is on the scrollbar, not by holding the button and moving it on the scrollbar. Fixes accidentally switching from slider to another (often happens in the reactor interface).
  • Fixed crashing when setting limb or joint scale to 0 using console commands.
  • Fixed dropdowns in the Workshop item publish menu being draw behind the buttons below them.
  • Fixes bots being unable to exit ladders if some part of their body is below the platform.
  • Ignore keyboard inputs (delete, arrow keys, copy/paste) in the sub editor when a textbox is selected. Prevents accidentally deleting items/structures when attempting to delete text from a textbox.
  • Toolboxes can't be put inside other toolboxes or in the doctor's clothes.
  • Fixed items bought from the store during a singleplayer campaign session being deducted from the credits when save & quitting from the map.
  • Flares stop emitting particles when inside an inventory.
  • Fixed oxygen not flowing through horizontal gaps between subs (e.g. between Remora and the drone).
  • Decreased the size of the mountain in the RidgeBasic level type to prevent it from blocking the main path.
  • Fixed too small collider sizes on a bunch of crafting materials.
  • Fixed order options ("hold fire"/"fire at will" etc) being displayed in one button instead of being split into separate buttons when playing the game in Chinese.
  • Fixed "Text Self_CauseOfDeathDescription.Unknown not found" console error if a character gets killed by being inside a respawn shuttle when it despawns.
  • Fixed sonar not scaling properly when resolution is changed mid-round.
  • Fixed fabricators & deconstructors displaying the "insufficient power" warning when power is low (but still high enough for the devices to run).

Networking fixes:

  • Fixed another ID mismatch problem that occasionally caused clients to get kicked out in multiplayer, usually with an error message warning about a missing item.
  • Fixed players always getting range banned when banned by a client.
  • Fixed turrets not being aimed correctly in multiplayer if they're in another sub (e.g. the coilgun in Remora's drone).
  • More reliable fabricator and deconstructor syncing. Should fix items disappearing when multiple players attempt to use the device at the same time and strange timing inconsistencies when deconstructing multiple items in succession.
  • Fixed all servers showing "unknown" as the game mode in the server list.
  • Fixed server not allowing forward slashes in host messages.
  • Fixed repair interface sometimes getting stuck close to 100% in multiplayer.

Character editor fixes and improvements:

  • Nicer layout, made the panels hideable.
  • Added buttons for creating joints, duplicating limbs, and deleting limbs/joints.
  • A dropdown for selecting which content package to add the character to.
  • Allow creating a new content package during character creation.
  • Added hotkeys 1, 2, 3 for limb, joint, and animation modes respectively.
  • Change the logic of deciding on which parameters are shown and when. In the ragdoll mode you can now see the ragdoll, but also scale it and see the main parameters. Source rects are now longer shown on the sprite sheet if limbs mode is disabled.
  • Automatically select edit limbs mode when a new character is created.
  • Option to create multiple limbs in the character creation wizard.
  • Disallow deleting the main limb because it often causes crashes.
  • Only allow selecting PNG files as the texture.
  • The spritesheet is shown by default.
  • Fixed deleted joints not being saved properly.
  • Only lock the axis for torso/head position when alt is down.
  • Disable test pose if the character is not a humanoid.

0.9.0.7[edit | edit source]

Released June 28th, 2019

Changes:

  • Made husks more common.

Multiplayer fixes:

  • Fixed an ID mismatch problem that occasionally caused clients to get kicked out in the multiplayer campaign, usually with an error message warning about a missing item.
  • Fixed servers using a local campaign save path sent by the client setupping the campaign, preventing the campaign from starting up if the path does not exist at the server's end.
  • Fixed radio communication occasionally not working between characters in the multiplayer campaign. Characters that had made it through at least one round were not able to communicate through radio with characters that have just been spawned for the first time.
  • Kick votes persist during a multiplayer session even if the client disconnects (= disconnecting and rejoining just before you get kicked doesn't work anymore).
  • The server sends a "this client previously used the name xxx" message when a client rejoins with a different name.
  • Fixed GameServer.UnbanPlayer passing the name to BanList in lower case even though BanList was case sensitive (preventing unbanning clients with the "unban" command if their name is not in lower case).
  • Fixed server not saving the whitelist when it's enabled disabled, causing the setting to revert when relaunching the server.
  • Fixed structure texture scale and texture offset now being reverting to default values when the submarine is saved by the server, causing them to reset between campaign rounds.
  • Fixed client always launching the default "DedicatedServer.exe" even if using a content package that should replace the server exe.
  • Servers only report content packages with files that cause multiplayer incompatibility to the master server. Fixes servers showing up as incompatible in the server list if they have custom sub files (or other types of files that don't cause compatibility issues) installed.
  • Fixed crashing when clients attempted to kick/ban players through the in-game info menu when a round was running.
  • Fixed client that's hosting a server not being taken into account in the player count visible on the server list.
  • Fixed server list not displaying non-English symbols correctly (e.g. Cyrillic or Chinese characters).

Misc fixes:

  • Replaced WinForms with SDL which should resolve most of the fullscreen/resolution issues. It's also now possible to change the resolution when in fullscreen without having to restart the game.
  • Fixes to the DXGI crashes during startup.
  • Fixed Character.GetConfigFile searching for the character file from all available content packages, not just the ones that are currently selected. Caused modded character files to affect the game even when the mod was not enabled, leading to various issues such as characters failing to equip items if the mod changes the number or type of inventory slots a character has.
  • Fixed a bug in monster/item spawnpoint logic that occasionally caused perfectly valid spawnpoints to be discarded when there were floating ice chunks in the level, sometimes causing monsters to spawn very far from the submarine (which often lead to the player not running into them at all).
  • Fixed bots not being able to retaliate when attacked with a repair tool.
  • Fixed crashing when firing a revolver in the sub editor.
  • Fixed items applying their status effects twice if they're put into a container by swapping them with another item. For example, replacing a fuel rod in the reactor by dropping a new fuel rod on it caused the reactor behave as if it had two rods in it.
  • Switches send out a continuous 0/1 signal that can be flipped by interacting with the switch (as opposed to working like buttons which send out a pulse when interacted with).
  • Fixed an issue that occasionally caused the main menu to look distorted when launching the game on Mac.
  • Fixed crash after opening the file browser from the Workshop menu more than once on Linux.
  • Fixed deconstructing coilgun ammo boxes giving out more materials than the materials required to fabricate them.
  • Fixed combat mission achievements being impossible to unlock.
  • Fixed item scales not being saved when the scale is modified in the sub editor.
  • Fixed incorrect physicorium shell description.
  • Fixed server list & workshop menu not resizing properly when changing resolution.
  • Fixed player input being used to determine whether a character should be holding on to ladders, causing AI characters to let go of ladders when holding RMB.
  • Fixed explosion damage bypassing armor (both creature shells and wearable items).
  • Fixed OverrideSaveFolder and OverrideMultiplayerSaveFolder settings not being saved.
  • Fixed order/report icons "twitching" when the sub moves.
  • Fixed players being able to repair submerged electrical items indefinitely.
  • Fixed a "attempted to access a removed ragdoll" console error when a character wearing the health scanner HUD is removed.
  • Fixed console errors when a battery's or supercapacitor's capacity is set to 0 and the interface is open.
  • Fixed ability to drop items into secure lockers (or other containers that require specific items) without having access to it.
  • Automatically move the gaps linked to doors when the door is moved (and vice versa).
  • Fixed items disappearing when they're dropped into a full container.
  • Fixed crashing when an item that requires aim to use is used by something else than a character (e.g. a status effect).
  • Fixed having a broken device on a sub in the sub editor and switching to Character Mode causing a crash.
  • Fixed the bottom of the background ice texture not rendering correctly on high resolutions.

  • Reduce the follow-up distance and require the bot to be in the same room than the player before stopping, so that bots with a follow order don't stay on the doorways when the player is trying to enter the airlocks.
  • Stop "breathing" deformations when the character is dead.
  • Disable obstructed paths when the submarine docks to another submarine/outpost.

Bugfixes:

  • Fixed crashing during startup due to faulty OpenAL installations.
  • Fixed inability to select the voice capture device if the name of the device contains non-latin symbols (Cyrillic or Chinese characters for example).

  • Fixed inability to spawn items in characters' inventories with the "spawnitem" console command.
  • Fixed health interface not focusing to the most damaged limb when closing and reopening the interface.

  • Fixed characters retaining the last known inputs when a client disconnects, causing the character to keep welding, honking a bike horn or whatever else they were doing until the server kills the character.
  • More reliable throw StatusEffect (= grenade explosion) syncing. Fixes clients not seeing explosions at their end.
  • More reliable item wall attaching syncing.
  • Servers don't attempt to send position updates for items that have no enabled physics body (e.g. attached items). Fixes "received a position update for an item with no physics body" console errors when attaching items to walls.
  • Fixed spectate button staying visible when a round ends while a client is in the lobby.
  • Fixed remote characters sliding slowly to the left client-side when standing in place.
  • Fixed server creating "attempted to create a network event for an item that hasn't been fully initialized yet" console errors when spawning Light Components mid-round.
  • Fixes monsters flipping around way too often client-side (especially when inside the sub).

Bugfixes:

  • Fixed wire connections that have been done mid-round not working properly.
  • Fixed crashing when attempting to speak as a monster in single player.
  • Fixed linked subs not getting docked correctly when loading a saved game.
  • Fixed turrets not working if they're placed inside the submarine.
  • Fixed calyxanide not being usable in Syringe Guns.
  • Explosive harpoons disappear after exploding.
  • Emptying the "required items" field of an item in the sub editor now removes the item requirements (instead of using the default ones).
  • Fixed crashing if a fabricator finishes creating an item after the user has been removed (e.g. eaten).
  • Fixed crashing if none of the selected content packages contain location portraits suitable for the main menu.
  • Fixed projectiles not applying status effects on impact if they have no attack defined.
  • Fixed thorium rods not being usable in the reactor.
  • Conditionals return a match when checking status tag inequality and the target has no status tags (e.g. checking if a character doesn't have a StatusEffect with a "poison" tag returns true even if the character has no active StatusEffects).
  • Fixed severed limbs occasionally noclipping into the submarine.
  • Fixed large engine emitting smoke before it becomes repairable.

0.8.9.8[edit | edit source]

Released March 29th, 2019

Additions and changes:

  • Improved tutorial - better videos, instructional texts, objective list that suggest what you should do next, option to rewatch the videos and re-read the instructions.
  • Overhauled charybdis (still a work in progress though).
  • Automatically grab adjacent ladders when the top/bottom of the current ladder is reached. Makes moving through docking ports a little less confusing.
  • Option to configure when afflictions become visible with the health scanner by adding a "ShowInHealthScannerThreshold" attribute to the affliction.
  • Added labels next to periscopes in Humpback and Dugong.
  • Modified Humpback's bilge to make it easier for AI characters to fix.
  • Enemies can now navigate out from the sub when escaping.
  • Bunch of tweaks to monster AIs (targeting priorities, attack cooldowns, etc).
  • Made InventoryIconColor and ContainerColor properties saveable.
  • Removed descriptive name from alien artifacts (so be extra careful when bringing them on board).
  • Allow panning the campaign map with WASD.
  • Allow editing selected wires in wiring mode (so it's possible to, for example, modify the colors of the wires without having to disconnect them).
  • Decreased structure damage done by frag grenades and made them disappear after they've exploded.
  • Batteries output charge values as integers.
  • Made damaged Junction Boxes less sensitive to overvoltage. Nearly broken junction boxes were barely able to handle any overvoltage, leading to chain reaction where one junction box breaking causes the grid to be overloaded, and the rest of the boxes start taking damage at an increasing speed.
  • Reactors don't cool down when underwater anymore.
  • Removed minimum conditions from battery deconstruction output (= deconstructing an empty battery still gives the materials used to craft the battery).
  • Made a bunch of ItemContainer UI panels larger.
  • Items can be dragged and dropped directly from the inventory into containers without having to select the container first.
  • Plants can be picked up from the environment without any tools.
  • Added more help texts to highlighted items ("[E] Interact", "[E] Climb"...)

Multiplayer fixes:

  • Changes to event syncing logic to prevent cases where clients fall behind the server and get kicked out due to the server not being able to send out network events to the clients fast enough.
  • Networking optimizations that prevent level objects and continuously deteriorating items from creating excessive amounts of network events.
  • Fixed windows clients being unable to start a campaign in servers running on Linux.
  • Fixed clients being unable to start a campaign using a submarine that's not in the default Submarine folder at the server's side.
  • Fixed loading submarine files and campaign saves occasionally failing when running multiple instances of the game from the same install location (for example, a dedicated server executable and a client executable).
  • Don't transfer files through the network when sending them to the owner of the server (i.e. a client hosting directly from the main executable).
  • Fixed fires and water occasionally getting out of sync between a client using the fire/water console commands and the server.
  • Fixed clients disconnecting with an "unknown object header" error if they fail to read a network event (when they should instead report the error to the server and wait for a message that contains a more descriptive error).
  • Campaign fix: clear missions from locations that change their type, and all adjacent locations. Not clearing them caused missions to still be available when they logically shouldn't be (e.g. a transport mission from an uninhabited location to another) and syncing issues in multiplayer.
  • Disable campaign start button if a round is already running when joining.
  • Fixed clients being unable to end campaign rounds at all if the sub isn't at the start/end outpost (regardless if they have the permission to end the round or not).
  • Fixed campaign characters still being displayed in the server lobby after the game mode has been changed to something else.
  • Fixed items in the characters inventory always starting at 100% condition client-side even if they had deteriorated during the previous round.
  • Fixed LevelResource (mineral, plant, etc) deattach timers not being synced with clients.
  • AI characters can take out excess fuel rods from the reactor when needed.
  • Item interfaces and the health interface can be closed with Esc.

Bugfixes:

  • Fixed almost all items using default repair duration values (10 seconds with high skills, 100 seconds with low skills) instead of the ones configured in the item XMLs.
  • Nuclear shells and nuclear depth charges disappear after they've exploded.
  • Fixed "trying to add a dead character to crewmanager" errors when attempting to revive a character killed by some other affliction than internal damage, bleeding or burns.
  • Take the position of a sub's docking port into account when determining where to place outposts. Previously the outposts were simply placed midway between the adjacent walls, which occasionally caused problems with submarines whose docking port is close to the bow or tail.
  • Fixed a bug in relay components that caused a bunch of issues in power grids that utilize relays: Relays would receive the full amount of power from the grid regardless of the load of the devices connected to the power_out connection, causing unnecessary overloads and fires.
  • Fixed batteries being able to draw power through relay components that are connected directly to a power source, even if the relay isn't on.
  • Don't allow steering the sub with WASD when a textbox is selected.
  • Use the SpriteColor of the item when drawing the moving parts of turrets and doors.
  • Fixed steering issues that caused monsters to swim in an incorrect direction when they're targeting something inside the sub.
  • Fixed a crash due when scaling the Mudraptor.
  • Fixed crashing if a character has neither a head angle or a torso angle configured.
  • Fixed characters always being created in the default folder in the character editor.
  • Monsters don't target doors/hatches at the exterior of the sub when inside or inner doors when outside.
  • Don't display disabled limbs on sonar (i.e. severed limbs that have "faded out").
  • Close the save/load dialogs when leaving the sub editor. Otherwise they'll still be visible when re-entering the editor, and saving at that point will overwrite the previously loaded sub with an empty one.
  • Removing an item after it's been combined doesn't trigger the OnBroken StatusEffects (e.g. combining two half-full flash powder jars doesn't cause them to explode).
  • Fixed welding tools and plasma cutters not hitting targets if the barrel is inside the target (e.g. if trying to weld a completely broken wall with the cutter partially inside the wall).
  • Fixed very small mineral colliders that made them extremely hard to hit with the plasma cutter.
  • Fixed items with no sprite crashing the game (now they just cause a console error).
  • Don't allow autointeracting with contained items (e.g. picking up an ammunition box from a loader) if another item is currently selected. Makes it less likely for players to accidentally pick up items from containers when they deselect another item.
  • Fixed characters not letting go of the character they're grabbing when the health interface is closed by clicking outside the window.
  • Fixed CrewManager throwing errors if changing resolutions when a crew member is dead.
  • Fixed items emitting light from inside containers in the sub editor.

0.8.9.7[edit | edit source]

Released March 22nd, 2019

Additions and changes:

  • The fission rate gauge on the reactor now visualizes the amount of fuel available.
  • Doors and hatches can now also be repaired with wrenches.
  • Changed default StatusEffect conditional comparison type back to OR.
  • Clients communicate syncing errors to the server, and the server logs a more descriptive error about what went wrong. Should make it easier to diagnose disconnection issues from now on.
  • Ending a multiplayer campaign round by talking to a watchman doesn't require any special permissions.
  • Server automatically ends rounds if there have been no players alive in 60 seconds and respawning is not allowed during the round.
  • Added a button for resetting an entity's properties to the default values to the sub editor.
  • Updated handheld sonar UI graphics.

Bugfixes:

  • Fixed non-radio chat/VOIP having an unlimited distance.
  • Fixed a networking bug that caused the server to send item state changes to the clients before sending a message about the item being spawned. For example, spawning any item with a Light Component would always cause clients to get disconnected.
  • Changes to the way the clients are put in sync with the server when joining mid-round. Should make it less likely for clients to get disconnected immediately after starting a round.
  • StatusEffects only apply non-limb-specific afflictions to one limb even if targeting the whole character. Fixes drugs like fentanyl and morphine being way too harmful due to the oxygen loss affliction being applied once per every limb.
  • Fixed TargetItemComponentName not working in StatusEffect conditionals (making it impossible to create conditionals that target a specific component of an item).
  • Made all of the new medical items combinable and usable in a Syringe Gun (assuming the drug is in a syringe).
  • Fixed inability to throw anything in the multiplayer.
  • Fixed multiplayer campaign setup UI showing the client's subs instead of the server's.
  • Fixed campaign view button overlapping with the "ready to start" tickbox in the server lobby.
  • Fixed sub/mode voting not being enabled when changing the setting after the server has been started.
  • Fixed character inventories occasionally being saved incorrectly in the multiplayer campaign when an
  • Fixed flares not activating by left clicking.
  • Fixed affliction icons flickering rapidly in the health interface and above the health bar if their strength is fluctuating around the threshold where the icon becomes visible.
  • Fixed dedicated server crashing when typing in more text than can fit on one line.
  • Fixed enemies "fleeing" after they have been shot. There was a steering issue when they targeted characters inside the sub while being outside.
  • Fixed Hammerhead attack causing warping.
  • Fixed incorrect submarine and level seed in server logs when playing campaign mode.
  • Hide the start button from the campaign UI if the client doesn't have the permission to manage the campaign or rounds.

0.8.9.6[edit | edit source]

Released March 18th, 2019

Additions:

  • A major overhaul on the crew AI. They should now be much better at executing their tasks, keeping themselves alive and less likely to get stuck.
  • Re-enabled multiplayer campaign.
  • New alien ruin art.
  • New main menu (still a work in progress).
  • New fonts.
  • New subs and a new shuttle.
  • New husk sprites.
  • Improved item/character highlight effect.
  • New signal items (divide, multiply, subtract, memory, equals, greater than, color, xor).
  • Option to adjust microphone volume in multiplayer.
  • Added console commands for changing the gender and race of the character.
  • More intuitive BrokenSprite condition logic: a BrokenSprite with a MaxCondition of 50 will start fading in at 50 (and be fully visible when the condition drops to 0 or down to the MaxCondition of the next BrokenSprite).
  • Added Mirror X/Y buttons to editing HUDs and tooltips that tell about the keyboard shortcuts.

Multiplayer fixes:

  • Improved item position syncing logic. Less warping or items being impossible to pick up due to being in a different position server-side.
  • Fixed clients not sending a network update to the server when dragging an item out of an inventory slot, causing situations such as suffocation after dropping a diving suit due to the server not knowing that you'd dropped it.
  • The client hosting a server and spectators don't trigger autorestart.
  • The owner of a server is allowed to spectate even if spectating is disallowed in server settings.
  • Fixed "play yourself" always toggling to true when a round ends.
  • Fixed missing item names in the extra cargo menu.
  • Fixed traitor rounds failing to start if the server is not hosted by a client.
  • Fixed console command aliases not being taken into account in GameClient.HasConsoleCommandPermission (meaning that the client needed a permission for each name variant of a command, making it impossible to for example use "fixwalls" instead of "fixhulls").
  • Made the "control" console command usable to clients.
  • Show the "ready to start" tickbox in the server lobby even if the client has the permission to start the round.
  • Fixed server lobby screen not showing the names of the submarines the client doesn't have.
  • Fixed inability to select the respawn shuttle as a client host.
  • Fixed VoipCapture creating new "could not start voice capture" popups constantly if there's no suitable capture device.
  • Fixed crashing when starting a round if a submarine name contains underscores.
  • Fixed clients console errors when attempting to modify the properties of an ItemComponent in-game (for example, the color of a light component).
  • Added some more information to the console messages and error popups when a client gets disconnected.
  • Fixed enablecheats command crashing the server if it's used when there are no clients present.

Misc bugfixes:

  • Audio fixes (less snap, crackle and pop).
  • Fixed particle "jitter" when the submarine was moving fast.
  • Fixed damage modifiers affecting all afflictions if they use affliction types instead of affliction identifiers.
  • Fixed end round vote text going outside the screen if there's a 2-digit amount of votes.
  • Fixed StatusEffects only applying afflictions to one limb even if the target is "Character" instead of "Limb".
  • Disable audio instead of crashing if no audio device is found.
  • Fixed item interfaces getting repositioned every frame when the editing HUD is open.
  • Fixed held items clipping with the sleeves of the character (e.g. when holding a revolver while an uniform is equipped).
  • Fixed being able to levitate by spamming the ragdoll button.
  • Fixed dead characters draining oxygen tanks inside diving suits/masks.
  • Fixed reactor gauges getting messed up if the optimal fission rate is more than 100% (which may happen if the power consumption is larger than what the reactor can generate).
  • Fixed mud raptors not having an inventory (nor lootable items).
  • Fixed inability to interact with any items when aim assist is set to 0%.
  • Fixed info panel flickering out and Tab getting "inverted" (= info panel shown when tab is not being held) when selecting crew members in the panel.
  • Fixed characters arms occasionally getting stuck above their shoulders.
  • Fixed wire nodes occasionally being created at the wrong end of a wire (e.g. when moving a wire between connections in a connection panel, the wire stretched from the device at the other end of the wire to the device that's being rewired).

Misc:

  • Changed the way arguments are given to the "setclientcharacter" command (no semicolon to separate the names, quotation marks have to be used for multi-word names just like with any other command).
  • Show the amount of credits in the crew tab of the campaign menu.
  • Don't spawn new monsters if docked to the start outpost or within 50 meters of the start/end of the level.
  • The diving knife now causes also internal damage besides bleeding.

Released March 5th, 2019

Bugfixes:

  • Fixed chatbox retaining the radio message prefix after being deselected.
  • Push-to-talk doesn't trigger when typin in a text box.

  • Fixed AI orders that target a specific item (such as the order to power up the reactor) not working in multiplayer.
  • Fixed crashes when attempting to use voice capture or change voice capture settings when there are no suitable capture devices available.
  • Fixed clients not being notified when an AI character shuts down the reactor.
  • Fixed deconstructors staying active without power in multiplayer.
  • Fixed sonar labels going outside the screen when at the left side of the display.

Additions & changes:

  • Increased the impact tolerance of crawlers to prevent them from killing themselves by bumping into walls.[1]

0.8.9.4[edit | edit source]

Released March 3rd, 2019

Multiplayer improvements:

  • Got rid of the listen server: when hosting as a client, the game actually runs the dedicated server executable in the background. Makes client-hosted servers a little smoother due to the better performance of the dedicated server, and also makes it much easier for us to maintain and test the multiplayer because we no longer have two separate server applications.
  • Added multiplayer campaign.
  • VOIP support! Still a work in progress, so minor audio glitches are to be expected.
  • Improved character and submarine position syncing. Way less rubberbanding and teleporting!
  • Fixed servers occasionally starting the round multiple times when autorestarting or starting by voting.
  • Fixes players being unable to log in as a client when they're hosting a dedicated server on another machine.
  • Option to randomize your job preferences in the server lobby.
  • Fixed a server timing issue that occasionally caused the server to kick clients due to desync when a round starts.
  • Fixed occasional server-side "maximum packet size exceeded" errors.
  • Require the players to either dock with the ending outpost or to get the sub close and enter the outpost before automatically ending the round.

Bugfixes:

  • Fixed crashing if the round ends while the health window is open.
  • Fixed incorrect item panel positioning in the crew command interface when the sub is docked to something.
  • Fixed crashing when an incompatible content package is selected in config.xml or if the content package cannot be found.
  • Fixed screen distortion effects on Linux.
  • Fixed non-character key input on Linux (arrow keys, tab, etc).
  • Fixed fullscreen option not taking effect on game launch.
  • Fixes to a bunch of crashes in the character editor.
  • Fixed subinventories not being displayed on the inner clothes slot, making it impossible to use the extra slots in uniforms.
  • Fixed game settings resetting every time the game is updated.
  • Fixed bots shooting at their own crew with turrets.
  • Fixed wifi components not receiving chat messages in single player.
  • Fixed AI not reloading coilguns if an empty box of ammunition is inserted in the loader.
  • Fixed incorrect deusizine scale.
  • Fixed turret light toggle not doing anything.
  • Fixed character skills that aren't defined in the job xml never increasing, resulting in all jobs except the captain always having a helm skill of 0.
  • Fixed flashlight & scooter light cones being "clipped".
  • Fixed StatusEffects bypassing limb damage modifiers.
  • Fixed waypoints not getting connected between docking ports on some subs.
  • Fixed target identifiers being bypassed when a StatusEffect is set to target nearby items or characters.
  • Fixed the "insufficient skills to use the item" text popping up if a character doesn't have sufficient skills to operate one of the item's components, even if the component was not interacted with (e.g. captains got a warning about not being able to use the connection panel of a nav terminal, even if they didn't select the connection panel).

Steam Workshop:

  • Update installed workshop items automatically on startup.
  • Allow adding submarines to workshop items with the "add file" dialog.
  • If creating an update for a workshop item that's currently installed, use the installed version instead of the one downloaded from the workshop.

Additions:

  • Some new random events.
  • A bunch of new afflictions and medical items.
  • Some new item sprites.
  • Added some new items that can be crafted from alien materials.
  • Display linked hulls as one room on the status monitor.
  • Tons of new sound effects.
  • Display the controlled character in the crew interface.
  • Option to "give orders" to the character you're controlling. In single player it can be useful if you want the controlled character to keep doing something when switching to another one, in the multiplayer it can be used to let others know what you're doing.
  • Added a weak spot to Moloch's bladder.
  • Baby Moloch, doo doo doo doo doo doo
  • Added damage particles to Mud Raptors and Molochs.
  • Added "minimum velocity" property to to motion sensors. Allows making sensors that, for example, keep a door open when a character is standing in the doorway.
  • Option to choose whether to use AND/OR logic in StatusEffects with multiple conditionals. Defaults to AND.
  • Added a 1 second "cooldown" to water detector state switches to prevent alarms from toggling on and off constantly when the water level is fluctuating around the position of the detector.
  • Added scram option (reactor shutdown) to the nav consoles in the vanilla subs.
  • Support for binding Mouse4, Mouse5 and MouseWheel.
  • Made Hammerhead and Mudraptor attracted to light.
  • New husk sprite (still WIP).

Misc:

  • Decreased deterioration rates across the board. Repairing a damaged item to full condition also now resets the deterioration delay, meaning that the item will not start deteriorating again immediately after it's been repaired.
  • Miscellaneous optimization.
  • Removed the info button from the top-left corner * the info menu is now opened with TAB.
  • Changed default chat/radio keybinds to T and Y.
  • Welding tools repair all the walls within the range of the raycast, not just the first wall the raycast hits. Makes it easier to repair overlapping and multi-layered walls.
  • Decreased the range of passive sonar * previously there was often no reason to use the active sonar because

the passive mode showed the area around the sub so clearly.

  • Health scanner shows all active afflictions (not just those that are visible in the health interface). Allows detecting afflictions at an earlier stage, making the item much more useful.
  • Nerfed the structure damage done by Molochs and Crawlers.
  • Reduced creature HP across the board.
  • Increased the amount of minerals in levels.
  • Increased flare burn time, making them more useful as path markers during exploration of ruins.
  • RepairTool damage is configured using StatusEffects and Afflictions instead of the "limbfixamount" attribute that always does burn damage.
  • Made headsets craftable.
  • Battery output doesn't start dropping until the charge is below 10%.
  • Restrict the amount of power going through relay components to the MaxPower value of the relay.
  • Set Humpback reactor output a bit higher, batteries now start at full charge and relays can't be overloaded.
  • Miscellaneous fixes and balancing to vanilla subs.[2]

0.8.9.3[edit | edit source]

Released February 6th, 2019

  • Fixed AI-controlled husk not spawning when a huskified player dies.
  • Fixed AI crew occasionally going outside to fix leaks.

  • Display Steam authentication errors in the server logs.
  • Fixed status effects with a ReduceAffliction value of 0 freezing the game.

  • Fixed StatusEffects not being able to target item components. Caused doors to be impossible to weld and most likely other issues with item StatusEffects as well.
  • Artifacts spawn in artifact holders again.
  • Fixes to "attempted to move pulljoint extremely far" errors which occasionally caused severe problems in syncing characters' positions.
  • Fixed a bug that occasionally caused monsters to spawn very close to the submarine in monster missions.
  • Fixed servers occasionally starting the round multiple times when automatically starting the game via autorestart or clients being ready.
  • Fixed up-to-date content packages being reported as incompatible in the Steam workshop menu.
  • Changed the default radio chat hotkey to T.

  • Fixed watchmen imploding continuously if they end up outside.
  • Fixed non-downloaded workshop items showing zero as the file size.
  • Fixed spectate button staying disabled if starting a round fails (due to a missing sub file for example).
  • Fixed crashing when teleporting characters from a submarine to ruins in multiplayer.
  • Fixed automatic temperature control setting turbine output above 100 if the power consumption is higher than what the reactor can generate. Caused "failed to write an event for the entity" errors in multiplayer.
  • Fixed AI characters attempting to treat dead characters.[3]

0.8.9.2[edit | edit source]

Released February 2nd, 2019

  • Fixed sliders buttons being invisible while pressed in device interfaces.
  • Fixed an item being spawned in the submarine editor when selecting an item from the menu while another one is already selected.
  • Fixed submarine colliders not taking into account the body offsets of the wall structures, causing some items outside the submarine's walls to be impossible to interact with (the most noticeable being the button that opens Orca's airlock from the outside).
  • Added a small stun effect to railgun shells.
  • Added a little extra fuel to vanilla subs.
  • Slowed down item deterioration rates.
  • Moved the position of turrets in Orca and Typhon to prevent players getting caught under them.
  • Moved humpback's cargo spawn position a bit to prevent the cargo from falling down the hatch under it.
  • Added better visual feedback when reactor is in poor condition.[4]

0.8.9.1[edit | edit source]

Released February 1st, 2019
  • A full graphics overhaul: almost all of the sprites has been polished or completely remade.
  • Improved random event system that tries to keep the overall difficulty of the game at certain level, delaying additional monster spawns if there's already lots of things going on, or spawning more when there's a more quiet moment.
  • Improved difficulty system: now the difficulty level has a much more noticeable effect on the gameplay.
  • General difficulty balancing all across the board: we've tried to make the difficulty curve more approachable to new players while still keeping things challenging for more experienced players on higher difficulty levels.
  • More varied levels, environmental hazards.
  • A new more detailed health system with things such as limb-specific injuries, addictions, overdoses, mental issues... The system is also highly moddable, and makes it much easier to implement things such as hunger mechanics, more varied poisons or stat-boosting items.
  • Completely redesigned in-game HUD (the inventory, crew command interface, chat, etc).
  • Redesigned crafting system.
  • Minerals scattered across the level (can be used for crafting).
  • A command/report system that can be used to communicate with your crew more effectively (in both single player and multiplayer).
  • Tons of additions to alien ruins (traps, puzzles, non-flooded rooms).
  • Improved AI (both the crew AI and the enemy AIs).
  • NPC dialog (including random chatter and context-specific lines that make it easier to keep track of what the crew is doing).
  • Most of the device interfaces have been redesigned to make them easier to use (and nicer to look at!).
  • Many additions to the campaign mode (still a work in progress though).
  • Overhauled the skill system: now every character can generally do anything (repair devices, fabricate new items, apply medical treatments), but characters with higher skill levels will do things more efficiently.
  • Skill progression in the campaign mode: characters' skills gradually increase, making them more valuable with each completed round.
  • New music composed specifically for the game.
  • Overhauled audio.
  • New monsters.
  • New items (weapons, tools, medical items, alien items, crafting materials, etc).
  • A completely remade tutorial.
  • Too many bugfixes to count.
  • Improved and much more stable ragdoll animations.
  • Additional tools for modders (character editor, sprite editor, level editor, additions to the submarine editor).
  • Steam functionality of course: full Workshop support, achievements, banning Steam IDs from servers...
  • Improved translation support: it's possible to translate texts in item/job/etc configuration files without breaking compatibility with existing subs or mods (see the EnglishVanilla file for some instructions).[5]
