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

0.10.5.1[edit | edit source]

Released September 22nd, 2020
  • Fixed clients not receiving a message of their character dying if they die far away from the position they were last spectating, causing them to get stuck to a state where they appear alive but can't interact with anything.

0.10.5.0[edit | edit source]

Released September 22nd, 2020

Changes and additions:

  • Added gardening: four different growable plants that produce specialed fruits which can be crafted into different items, or just thrown about and splattered on the hulls of the sub.
  • Added cleaning: decals are now persistent and water gradually dirties up the submarine's walls. The dirt and the decals can be cleaned with a special tool that can also be used to paint the walls.
  • New submarine, the heavy transportation ship R-29. Original design by "Rav2n".
  • Overhauled mudraptor: new sprites, more varied attacks and heavier armor.
  • Option to change the channel on the headset, making it possible to do things like secret communication on another channel or devices that react to commands sent on a specific channel.
  • Added a verification prompt when trying to handcuff yourself.
  • The inventory of handcuffed players isn't hidden completely, just locked (with a tooltip that explains why it's locked). Hiding the inventory was confusing to many new players, and it was easy to mistake it for a bug.
  • Added directional markers that show the locations of the interactable NPCs in outposts.
  • User's helm skill affects engine output.
  • The game is paused when the campaign map is open in the single player campaign.
  • The campaign map is automatically closed if the submarine gets too far from the end of the level while the map is open in multiplayer.
  • Clients are allowed to view the campaign map even if they don't have the permissions to select the destination or the mission.
  • The docking confirmation prompt is only shown when attempting to redock to the outpost you just left from.
  • Wrecks are now properly initialized when spawned with "spawnsub" console command.
  • Readjusted the attacks for the Husk and the Humanhusk.
  • Added the option to select the minimum number of players required on the server for traitors to become active to the server settings menu.
  • Log when clients modify the properties of an item (e.g. light colors, signal component settings).
  • Allow selling items as long as their condition is over 90%.
  • ID cards can be sold (as long as they're not in the player's own ID card slot).
  • Disallowed selling items in equipment slots.
  • Added cancel button to the "reconnecting to server" message box.
  • DockingPort, Turret and LightComponent toggle connections ignore 0 signals.
  • Traitor victims get a message saying they were killed by a traitor.
  • Stack chat message popups when the chatbox is hidden instead of just showing one at a time.
  • Switches now have lights that indicate whether they're on or off.
  • Added "fuel_out" output to reactors.
  • Added "set_light" connection to turrets.
  • Made stun gun darts craftable from any type of wire.
  • Outpost generator uses the first module type defined in the outpost config as the 1st module instead of forcing it to "airlock" (making it possible for modders to create outposts with another type of entrance module).
  • Mission rounds end automatically if there are more living players inside the outpost than outside it, even if the sub is not at the end of the level.
  • Made togglehud command usable in the sub editor for nicer screenshots.
  • Characters don't gain helm skill when the sub isn't moving. Prevents grinding the helm skill when the sub is docked or maintaining position.
  • Improved the way solid obstacles reduce explosion damage. Non-broken doors and walls nullify the damage almost completely.
  • Fabricator continues fabricating when transitioning to a new level while it's running.
  • Hid movement orders from the contextual command interface when there are orders of another type available.
  • Made improvements to store interface tooltips. They now include the item name and should be displayed more consistently.
  • Disabled automatic crew list sorting. The order now remains the same throughout the round.
  • Added a second previous order icon to the crew list.
  • Added character godmode, renamed mainsub godmode command to 'godmode_mainsub'.
  • Increased sub editor auto save slots from one to 8 by default.
  • Made logbooks sellable.
  • Equipping a weapon activates it's reload time (capped to a maximum of 1 second), preventing bypassing the reload times by swapping between multiple weapons.
  • Hide campaign NPC icon when the NPC is dead or incapacitated.
  • Bots now prioritize stunning melee weapons based on their damage if they run out of battery.
  • Made antidotes cheaper and easier to fabricate.
  • Location reputations are shown when overing the cursor over a location in the campaign map screen.

Modding improvements and fixes:

  • The order of all installed mods (not just the enabled ones) is now saved into the config file.
  • Workshop mods can now be downloaded and installed automatically before joining a modded server.
  • Disabled the Executable content type due to issues with cross-platform support.

  • Fixed a crash when attempting to modify the currently selected core package when other core packages aren't available.
  • Fixed a modding-related crash at startup.
  • Increased the "SeverLimbsProbability" cap (for items) from 1 to 10. The value is multiplied together with the joint setting "SeveranceProbabilityModifier", and limiting the value to 1 makes it impossible to boost the probability of some weapons/attacks.
  • Fixed negative rotation speeds not working on decorative sprites.
  • Fixed ItemPrefabs loading after AfflictionPrefabs.
  • Previous enabled mods are restored when leaving a server.
  • Added support for "periodic effects" (effects that execute every x seconds) to Afflictions. See the new "nausea" affliction for a usage example.

  • Some adjustments to the logic on when a diving gear is required and when it's not.
  • Bots now avoid idling in narrow hulls. Instead of taking the whole hull volume into account, they now give weight only for the width of the room.
  • Bots should now avoid idling in flooding hulls even when they have proper equipment.
  • Medics don't anymore try to rescue targets that are fixing leaks.
  • Medics now try to replace empty oxygen tanks for their targets before dragging them into safety. They should also take the suit off when it's not needed.
  • Security officers and those who are ordered to fight intruders now actively seek new weapons if they have a poor weapon or run out of ammo.
  • Bots don't try to move while grabbed by a friendly character.
  • Bots now detect and ignore leaks that other bots are targeting.
  • Bots don't anymore try to decontain diving suits when the path to the cabinets is flooding.
  • All crew members now try to keep the reactor running, unless the player orders someone to shut if down or turns it off manually.
  • Bots shouldn't anymore try to operate items that other bots are targeting (previously they used to walk next to the device and only then continue).
  • Removed the following autonomous objectives from medic and the security officer: fix leaks, repair systems, and pump water.
  • Bots should now give a high priority on items that they are currently repairing, no matter if the decision to repair that item was made by them or the player controlling the character.
  • Bots that operate/fix should now wait a few seconds before heading on their business (previously only in idle state). They are not allowed to wait in some circumstances, like when they are underwater or when there's a threat around.

  • Bots can be hired in multiplayer campaign.
  • New campaign map.

0.9.10.0[edit | edit source]

Released June 4th, 2020

Additions and changes:

  • Added 2 new moloch variants: Black Moloch and Moloch Pupa.
  • Reworked Moloch.
  • Overhauled level layouts and events (longer and more difficult levels).
  • Added two new afflictions: medical items and poisons cause organ damage instead of internal damage and explosions cause deep tissue injuries. Both are functionally identical to internal damage, and treated with the same items.
  • Added DXT5 texture compression to reduce memory consumption. Slightly increases loading times; if you're not short on memory, you may want to disable the compression from the game settings.
  • Added partial dismemberment for live creatures. Currently enabled only for non-humanoids. (Dismembering dead bodies was already in the game).
  • Destructible shells/armor -> Moloch's shell can now be destroyed.
  • Added a new monster AI state: Protect.
  • Increased the threshold for limping and changed the calculations.
  • Added limping for non-human characters.
  • Modded servers show up as purple in the server list.
  • Added 4 new background music tracks.
  • Added parameter autocompletion to the "spawnsub" command.
  • All content types except UI styles are now hotswappable.
  • Made smoke detector logic more accurate (no size restrictions on the size of the fire, the fire doesn't have to be inside the same hull).
  • Added "Output" and "FalseOutput" properties to smoke detector.
  • Option to define ambient light values for individual hulls in the sub editor.
  • Characters float in place instead of sinking when staying still underwater.
  • Improvements to water flow forces: flowing water can push characters around much more heavily now.
  • Balanced item prices and fabrication/deconstruction recipes.
  • Balanced medical items.
  • UI layout improvements when using an ultrawide resolution.
  • Added "set_channel" input to wifi components.
  • Added "power_value_out" and "load_value_out" outputs to reactor.
  • Added search/filter boxes to content package list in the settings menu and item lists in the Workshop menu.
  • Added submarine filter to the server lobby.
  • Detonators are only triggered by non-zero signals.
  • The state of toggleable controllers (= switches) can be set in the sub editor.
  • Made toolboxes purchaseable.
  • Added a warning to keep the drone door closed in Remora.
  • All Thalamus cells die when the Thalamus dies.
  • Removed "hold fire" option from the "operate weapon" order, display turrets on minimap as icons instead of text.
  • Added some logic to prevent the game from modifying/deleting any vanilla content in any situation.
  • Readded legacy Carrier (doesn't spawn naturally but can be spawned with console commands).
  • Modified Typhon 2's coilgun rotation limits a bit so it isn't possible to hit the walls when firing at enemies near the airlock.
  • Hulls can be multiedited in the sub editor.
  • Placed down wires can now be re-equipped in the sub editor by double clicking a loose end.
  • Added charging docks to Remora.
  • Adjusted how pixel sizes are converted to meters (which are used to display the submarine's dimensions and distances on the navigation terminal). Previously 100 pixels corresponded to 1 meter, now it's 80px -> 1m, making the human characters about 1.75m tall.
  • Distance calculations on the navigation terminal take the shape of the path into account instead of just using the direct distance to the target.
  • Made improvements to the manual order assignment by adding always visible name labels, displaying indicators for characters' current orders, and repositioning the nodes.
  • Reduced the damage range of fires, characters don't take damage from fires if there's a closed door or a wall in between.
  • Always draw steering indicators at the center of the display instead of the center of the sub. Fixes indicators getting offset (sometimes even outside the display) during docking.
  • Added option to give all command perms with the "givecommandperm" command by using "all" as the parameter.
  • Wrecks with no predefined Thalamus items can no more be infested by Thalamus. Allows to create wrecks that always spawn without Thalamus.
  • The "shut down" reactor order now allows the bot to continue doing other things after powering off the reactor, instead of just standing next to the reactor.
  • Removed the "initiative" skill -> all bots should now react better when there's something to do. Note: this doesn't mean that they always react on everything. It's just the end of individualism. At least for now.
  • Reduced the physical forces applied on characters when they are hit by melee weapons, harpoons, or frag grenades. Adjusted stun for crowbar and harpoon.
  • Disabled retreat/escape behavior for the bots when they take damage from items or explosions. They still escape/fight back when attacked by other characters.
  • Refactor the medic priority calculations/logic: Bots should never treat others autonomously, unless they are medics or ordered to rescue. Bots should always give a high priority for treating themselves, unless there's a medic on board.
  • Adjusted the flipping logic of non-humanoids to make them flip less frequently.
  • Monsters won't anymore target nasonov artifact unless it is inside the player submarine or in the player inventory.

Modding:

  • Made it possible to use repair tools with StatusEffect's UseItem.
  • Made pressure deaths more moddable. Dying because of high pressure isn't hard-coded anymore, the characters are just given the barotrauma affliction which (by default) kills them.
  • Added "HideConditionBar" property to items.
  • Fixed wearables staying on the character when the item is removed by a status effect.
  • Character light sprites can now deform. The cells of Thalamus (Leucocyte and Terminal cell) now use the deformable light sprites.
  • Creature flipping parameters are now exposed. Adjusted the flipping for all creatures.
  • Allow to define character joints as weld joints in addition of normal revolute joints. Weld joints don't rotate.
  • Allow sound definitions to ignore the muffling effect.
  • Exposed the "scatter" value and added new "offset" attribute for monster events.
  • Added support for status effects in limb definitions (ragdoll file).
  • Status effects defined in the character definition can now also target limbs.
  • Added ActionType.OnSevered status effect for limbs.
  • Creatures can now be set to disrupt sonar.
  • Player attacks can now also use the conditionals (i.e. when player is controlling a character). Previously only the AI used the conditionals.
  • Conditional sprites don't anymore require a texture definition.
  • Conditional Sprites can now be non-exclusive -> Draw more than just one sprite at a time.
  • Fixed conditional sprites not being able to target limbs.

Bugfixes:

  • Fixed crashing when opening the tab menu when there are clients present with no job preferences set.
  • Fixed "ColdCavernsMaze" levels sometimes being extremely short.
  • Fixes to level generation when playing with a very large submarine.
  • Fixed bots being unable to shoot at enemies from another room/hull.

  • Fixed "Gaze in to the Abyss" achievement sometimes unlocking as soon as the round starts.
  • Fixed characters sometimes being unable to exit the submarine when outside the borders of the level.
  • Fixed ruin/wreck monsters not spawning if the submarine is too close to them.
  • Fixed ruin items sometimes getting saved as a part of the main submarine in the campaign.

  • Thalamus entities can't be selected in the sub editor when they're hidden.
  • Fixed "spawnsub" console command not working.
  • Fixed projectiles, welding tools and plasma cutters hitting destroyed Thalamus organs.
  • Fixed reactor not shutting down if the turbine/fission rate are controlled via signals even the power switch is toggled off.
  • Fixed reactor sliders not moving when they're controlled by signals.
  • Fixed level triggers sometimes affecting entities that have left the trigger. The most noticeable effect was characters getting burn damage indefinitely after they've been close to a hydrothermal vent.
  • Made flamers fire proof to prevents the flames from blowing up the fuel tank inside it.
  • Don't allow harpoons to stick to very small limbs (such as mudraptor's "mouth tentacles"), because it lead to physics glitches.
  • Fixed the husk infection crashing when turning the character, if either the non-husk or the husked variation has no inventory defined.
  • Fixed characters getting weapon XP after using a turret, until someone else operates the same turret.
  • Fixed characters being able to crouch when their pose is controlled by a controller (e.g. periscope, modded chair).
  • Fixed bots being unable to aim correctly when operating a turret in another submarine (such as a remotely controlled coilgun in a shuttle).
  • Fixed bots sometimes taking too much time to interrupt their current objective when the room they're in floods, causing them to get crushed by pressure.
  • Fixed bots sometimes letting go of ladders too soon, preventing them from reaching certain areas (such as the upper platform in Berilia's cargo bay).
  • Fixed multiple bots sometimes trying to treat the same person.
  • Bots stop grabbing the character they're treating after they're done.
  • Fixed harpoons going through doors.
  • Fixed depth charges going through level walls.
  • Fixed husks attacking human husks wearing a diving suit.
  • Fixed first shot from a firearm that uses a magazine/clip not doing anything.
  • Fixes to waypoints in Kastrull, Berilia and Remora.
  • Fixed chat-linked wifi components not working in single player.
  • Fixed chat-linked wifi components not working in multiplayer outside of combat missions.
  • Fixed Azimuth using tutorial junction boxes instead of normal ones (the tutorial variants are indestructible and don't have signal connections).
  • Fixed autopilot not being able to navigate past wrecks.
  • More reliable syncing of door's breaking state. Fixes doors sometimes being impassable or impossible to repair client-side, particularly when joining mid-round.
  • Fixed repairing doors getting interrupted at 50% when the door's collider is re-enabled and the character pushed out of the doorway.
  • Fixed items getting used in the health interface when dropped on a subinventory slot in front of the interface.
  • Fixed dedicated servers letting clients join with an invalid name when there's no server owner.
  • Fixed server letting clients join with a name that's already taken.
  • Changed "creating hulls between docking ports failed" from errors to warnings. Allows creating exterior docking ports that aren't next to a hull without having the console pop up every time the port is used.
  • Fixed changing resolution not updating character inventory slot sizes properly, causing invalid spacing in dead characters' inventories.
  • Don't allow detaching signal components when rewiring is disabled or the item's connection panel is locked.
  • Fixed misaligned hull next to Wreck1's airlock.
  • Fixed "attempting to remove an already removed item" errors when mass-deleting items. Happened because removing items a wire is connected to removes the orphaned wires automatically.
  • Fixed multi-part subs (example case: The Aeche III) getting teleported to oblivion when flipped.
  • Fixes to bots getting stuck or killed for no apparent reason when the player is very far from them, due to the bots switching to a "simple physics mode" which prevents them from doing certain kinds of interactions.

  • Disabled crush depth in the submarine test mode.
  • Fixed monsters staying invisible if they die far away from the camera view.
  • Fixed very small limbs (mudraptor's mouth tentacles, husk appendages) launching off at a very high velocity, leading to glitchy physics behavior, when hit by a non-raycast projectile or an explosion.
  • Allow subs to be saved to subdirectories of the "Submarines" folder (e.g. "Submarines/Downloaded").
  • Fixed a couple of waypoints in Berilia that prevented bots from using the ladders.
  • Fixed Husked Crawler bleeding red blood.
  • Fixed the priority of the operate order being 69 when it should be 70, which sometimes caused bots to get stuck between two objectives (like repairing or fixing leaks).
  • Fixed enemies always using the priority defined for "room" when they should use the priority for "sonar".
  • Fixed monsters not being able to drop down from platforms/hatches etc. In practice they still have difficulties in getting down from the hatches when they don't swim because they are so big.
  • Fixed bots ignoring themselves as a target when they are rescuing others.
  • Fixed numerous issues in the monster behavior when simple physics is enabled. e.g. Ignoring targets or not being able to attack or eat them.
  • Fixed hitting damage modifiers emitting a ridiculous amount of particles.
  • Fixed some cases where bots fail to open the door that they should be able to open (because they skipped a waypoint without checking the doors).
  • Fixed monsters not keeping inside the level.
  • Fixed a crash when the command interface button was pressed while the player is controlling a custom monster that didn't have character info but was able to speak.
  • Fixed monsters sometimes ignoring their target after attacking.

0.9.9.1[edit | edit source]

Released April 30th, 2020
  • Fixed bots being unable to fire turrets due to the visibility raycast hitting the turret's collider.
  • Fixed submarine's version number resetting to 0.0.0.0 when saving in the sub editor (didn't affect the actual saved sub file, only the in-game metadata that got fixed by restarting the game - so there's no need to do anything to fix the sub files you saved with the previous version).
  • Fixed server list occasionally crashing when trying to filter based on game mode.
  • Fixed an issue in multiplayer campaign that occasionally caused clients to get kicked with a "missing entity" error message.
  • Fixed clients occasionally crashing when joining a server mid-round. Happened when the client tried to execute the attack of a monster that has already despawned server-side.
  • Fixed local changes an user has made to a mod getting overwritten when the item gets autoupdated.
  • Changed the hotkey to toggle the entity list in the sub editor from Q to the "toggle inventory" keybind to make it a little more user-friendly on AZERTY keyboards.

  • Renamed "AttackContext.NotDefined" to "AttackContext.Any".
  • Added "Retreat" parameter for attacks. When enabled, the character tries to steer away from the target while attacking it.
  • Accept the plural "requireditems" when overriding items.

  • Fixed level editor not saving level generation parameters that are inside an <override> element.
  • Fixed job icons overflowing from the job selection panel when using mods that add more jobs.
  • Fixed clients being unable to cancel file transfers.
  • Fixed StatusEffects with a delay or a duration "transferring" to another target when the same effect is applied on another entity (for example when using the same stabilozine syringe on multiple characters).
  • Fixed particles spawned in StatusEffects only copying the emission angle of the parent item, but not the rotation when CopyEntityAngle is set to true.
  • Fixed terminals not sending any outputs server-side.
  • Fixed bots unequipping diving suits when they shouldn't. Only happened while doing a low prio objective.

  • Fixed AI targets not being decreased on inactive items.
  • Fixed fire extinguisher definition (xml): the identifier and the tag shouldn't be the same string.
  • Fixed monsters sometimes moving slower than they should when walking inside.
  • Fixed charge indicator not being flipped in horizontally/vertically flipped batteries.
  • Fixed fabricators occasionally getting stuck to the active/inactive state client-side when the fabrication is paused due to insufficient power.
  • Fixed ancient weapon not cutting through holes in walls.
  • Fixed ambient light being brighter in the submarine editor than in-game.
  • Fixed walk speed not being affected by speed reductions.
  • Fixed all enemies ignoring the speed modifiers.
  • Fixed wires appearing as loose items on the floor after saving and reloading if they've been disconnected from both ends.

0.9.7.1[edit | edit source]

Released March 4th, 2020
  • Fixed crashing when attempting to publish Workshop items.

0.9.7.0[edit | edit source]

Released March 4th, 2020

UI/UX improvements:

  • Graphical and functional overhaul of all user interfaces.
  • Cursor changes according to what it's hovered on (hand icon when on a button, caret icon when on a textbox, etc).
  • New loading screen.
  • Better feedback on shooting.
  • Double clicking on an item moves it to the equipped inventory (e.g. ammo to the equipped weapon).
  • Periscopes can be deselected by pressing esc.
  • Fabricators can pull ingredients directly from the user's inventory without having to place them in the fabricator's input slots.
  • Lock the on/off switch in the pump interface when the state is controlled by signals, same with the engine slider.
  • 1 second cooldown before doors can be opened/closed after someone else has opened/closed them. Makes it less likely for doors to be opened/closed accidentally when multiple people are trying to use them at the same time.
  • Show a warning if trying to start a campaign for the first time without playing the tutorials.
  • Diving suits and fire extinguishers are not automatically picked up from the lockers/brackets when clicking on them to make it less likely to accidentally pick them up. Instead, clicking on them opens the inventory of the container, the same way when interacting with e.g. a steel cabinet.
  • Subinventories (= inventories inside items, toolboxes for example) open/close faster and cannot be interacted with until fully open.
  • Contents of toolboxes and crates are shown in the tooltip when hovering the cursor over the slot.
  • In-game message boxes (mission/traitor notifications) close automatically after 15 seconds if not interacted with.
  • Right-clicking in the sub editor opens a context menu that can be used to remove, cut, copy and paste entities (making it possible to remove them when using a keyboard that doesn't have a delete key).
  • Hide cursor when aiming with a turret or a ranged weapon.
  • Hide inventory when operating a turret.
  • Added filtering to sprite and particle editors.
  • Added a "Decorative" category to the submarine editor.
  • Made docking indicators more visible on the sonar.
  • Show mic input level also when Push-to-Talk mode is selected to make it easier to adjust the level without having to switch the mode to Voice Activity.
  • Pressing the up arrow brings up previously sent chat messages, making it easier to resend them.
  • The filter in the sub editor only searches from the currently selected category.

Optimizations:

  • Major physics optimization. Most importantly, the physics are now multithreaded, making the game perform much better when there are large numbers of characters active.
  • Item optimizations. Items that don't currently have any components active are not updated, which significantly improves the performance especially in large subs with lots of items.
  • More aggressive character culling (characters stop being rendered as soon as they exit the camera view).
  • Dead bodies despawn after a few minutes (or when the character respawns in multiplayer). The despawning character's items are placed in a duffel bag and dropped near the body. Prevents performance issues when lots of bodies start to accumulate in the submarine.
  • Preload necessary monster assets at the start of the round to prevent lag spikes when a monster spawns.
  • Fixed serious performance issues when creatures are on the borders of the sub (some issues still remain).
  • Improved the performance of human AI (bots).

Additions and changes:

  • Added Korean translation.
  • Added an improved version of Typhon.
  • Reworked Berilia.
  • New shuttle, "Hemulen".
  • Merged Selkie and Bunyip into a new, improved shuttle (just called Selkie now).
  • Increased level sizes.
  • Rebalanced monster spawns.
  • Balanced skill levels and skill gains.
  • Skill gain values are now moddable (see Content/SkillSettings.xml).
  • Added a few new artifact missions.
  • The job gear variants are not just visually different versions of the same item, but completely separate items. The job variants now allow the players to choose what kind of gear they want to spawn with, not just the look of the uniform.
  • Attachable items and wire nodes can now be freely placed around the character instead of always being placed at the position of the character. When attaching items/wires, there's a placement grid that makes it much easier to neatly attach/wire things mid-round.
  • The submarines now get automatically outfitted with a semi-random selection of supplies when starting a campaign. The items that have been manually placed in the submarine editor are kept as-is.
  • Split internal damage into multiple subtypes: blunt force trauma, lacerations and bite wounds. The new afflictions are functionally identical to the default internal damage affliction, but can be used to identify the source of the injuries.
  • Humans are more resistant to gunshot wounds, lacerations and blunt force trauma than monsters. The intention is to allow making weapons more effective towards monsters without making killing your crewmates with them too easy.
  • Added a "terminal" item that can be used to send and display textual signals. Could be used for things such as terminals that send commands to devices or display some data received from devices.
  • Added muzzle flashes to small firearms.
  • Added a crosshair when aiming with small firearms. The crosshair also indicates the spread of the weapon.
  • Increased the skill requirements to operate the reactor.
  • New background music for editors.
  • Characters with an insufficient electrical engineering skill may get electrocuted when rewiring powered devices.
  • Added holes in the level walls next to the outpost at the end of the level, so the player doesn't have to backtrack through most of the level if they approach the outpost from the wrong side of the level wall.
  • Added heavy water currents at the sides of the level to make it more obvious that you're not supposed to go that way.
  • Added subtle chromatic aberration & blur when suffering from heavy bloodloss.
  • Nerfed hull damage from plasma cutter and welding tool explosions.
  • Removed repair thresholds from items; any device that's not in perfect condition can now be repaired.
  • Rebalanced medical items: stat-boosting effects last much longer.
  • Modified vigor buffs from steroids and hyperzine to be intantaneous instead of delayed.
  • Tweaked opiates. They now do less overdose damage, produce a lower addiction for skilled users, but produce a serious addiction for unskilled users.
  • Bandages now have 3 uses.
  • Removed oxygenite shards as a product of deconstructing liquid oxygenite to prevent production loops.
  • Screwdrivers can be used as shivs!
  • Fuel rods now always return their steel on deconstruction.
  • Constructing fuel rods now requires lead.
  • Mouse button names are now translated.
  • Improved tiger thresher texture and lights.
  • Replaced the legacy ladder, stair and docking port sprites.
  • New alarm buzzer sprite that actually looks like an alarm buzzer.
  • New (smaller) small pump sprite.
  • Decreased the range and brightness of the "halo" around the players.
  • Exposed pump's MaxFlow parameter in the sub editor.
  • Added a lot more oomph to nuclear explosions.
  • Added damage particle effects that are rendered on top of the characters (also under water).
  • Split internal damage into categories: gunshot wound, blunt trauma, lacerations, monster bites, and internal damage.
  • Gunshot wound is no longer a bleeding affliction.
  • Humans are more resistant to damage caused by weapons (means we can increase the damage on monsters without making the weapons too lethal on humans)
  • Added damage protections on some clothes.
  • Major SMG buff: larger magazine, less spread, more damage, but slightly lower fire rate.
  • Minor Shotgun buff: more damage and stun.
  • Slightly decreased the stun effect from revolver ammunition.
  • Modding: Removed all texture paths from limbs where they are not required. Fixes issues when trying to create a copy with a custom texture based on an existing character. Note that the "Copy Character" functionality does not automatically replace texture paths that have been defined in limbs, because that could lead into issues. If there are texture paths in the limbs, you'll have to handle it manually. The texture paths defined in limbs are limb specific overrides to the common path defined in the ragdoll's properties.
  • Use "weldingequipment" tag instead of "weldingtool" identifier when seeking the equipment for fixing the leaks to enable support for custom welding equipment.
  • Use "cuttingequipment" tag instead of "plasmacutter" identifier as required items for collecting minerals to enable support for custom cutting equipment.
  • Artifact mission markers are shown on the sonar even after the artifact is on board to make it harder to lose the artifact.
  • Made monster mission markers more imprecise.
  • Made the "name contains illegal symbols" error message more descriptive (with instructions to change the name to something else).
  • CPR damage can be modded by editing the affliction xml.
  • A warning when attempting to start a campaign that was saved with different mods than the ones that are currently active.
  • Switched from .NET Framework 4.5/Mono to .NET Core 3.0:
    • Improves general stability, especially on macOS and Linux.
    • Lowers number of dependencies, simplifying the installation process.
    • Introduces features that will translate into further stability and performance improvements in the future.
  • Switched from MP4 to WebM to minimize bloat and dependencies on patented tech.
  • Cap the framerate to 200 FPS when VSync is off to prevent overloading the GPU. The cap can be adjusted by changing the "framelimit" attribute in config_player.xml.
  • Wifi components in the respawn shuttle can't communicate with components in other submarines/shuttles.
  • Power consumption of damaged devices doesn't increase as much anymore.
  • Made tonic liquid purchasable.
  • Added combat priorities to alien weapons to allow bots to use them.
  • Improved name tag hiding.
  • Give job items to humans spawned with the "spawn" command.
  • Slightly increased the view range of the coilguns and railguns.
  • Continue playing the main menu and editor music from the previous position instead of restarting when switching between screens.
  • Marked "editsubs" a cheat command (so you can't just switch to the sub editor, spawn whatever you need and go back to the game without enabling cheats).

AI:

  • Bots can now undock the sub.
  • Humanoids now use the "group" property like non-humanoids. This allows non-humanoid creatures to be treated as friendly/neutral subjects by the bots.
  • Replaced the generic "cannot reach target" messages with context-specific and more descriptive messages.
  • Bots now take the other bots into account when they evaluate the importance of the tasks. Fixes multiple bots going to fix the same leaks or repair the same items.
  • Bots should now abandon the combat objective only when not fleeing from an enemy. If they fail to flee from an enemy, they will fight (or avoid) instead.
  • Fixed bots loading the turrets only with the default ammunition.
  • Fixed multiple bots trying to navigate the submarine at the same time.
  • Fixed pathfinding applying 10x more penalty on vertical distance when the host is outside (should only apply inside).
  • Fixed bots starting the path from obstructed waypoints or waypoints that are inside when they are outside or vice versa.
  • Fixed issues when bots are trying to enter the airlock from outside.
  • Fixed bots getting stuck in the combat mode (with 100 priority) when they try to retreat to a target that cannot be reached.
  • Fixed two-handed items like ammoboxes not being visible when the bots carry them.
  • Fixed issues when the bots try to equip items or contain them inside other items.
  • Fixed bots sometimes going to repair leaks/fix things without a mask or a suit.
  • Fixed bots being unable to put diving suits into lockers when there already is a diving suit in the targeted container. Instead of dropping it on the ground, the bots now try to find a new place for the suit before abandoning the objective.
  • Fixed bots seeking paths through doors when they have a crowbar/wrench equipped.
  • Fixed bots sometimes being unable to put off fires and dying while trying to do it (because of a failing raycast).
  • Fixed bots not shooting hostile submarines.

Monsters:

  • New behaviors: avoiding, passive-aggressive, and aggressive.
  • Adjusted Bonethresher, added a berserker attack when the creature is low in health.
  • Revised Matriarch's behavior: Matriarchs now spawn in swarms, protected by other Hammerheads, and they try to keep the distance to the submarine. Boosted the explosion and increased the Spawn count.
  • Added new missions about Hammerhead Matriarch.
  • Revised all the creatures using the new behaviors.
  • Changed how "attack when provoked" works. The previous state is now reset when the target changes. Also fixed several relate issues. Rename the property (requires action if custom characters use it). When a creature is attacked and "attack when provoked" is false and the attacker is not found in the predefined ai targets, the creature flees by default instead of just ignoring the attacker.
  • Refactored the eating behavior: fixes small creatures not being able to eat significantly larger creatures.
  • Adjusted the commonness and the reward of the Thresher swarm mission.
  • Improved the indoors escaping behavior.
  • Reduced the linear velocity when not facing the movement direction. Should fix monsters moving unnaturally when abruptly changing directions.
  • Increased the swimming speeds of all monsters and adjusted the animations accordingly.
  • Improved the path steering while swimming inside the submarine.
  • Halved the swimming speeds inside the submarine.
  • Increased the attack ranges for Hammerhead and Hammerhead gold to help them reach the targets.
  • Don't allow large creatures like Bonethreshers or Hammerheads enter the submarine, because they easily get stuck and it's glitchy.
  • Fixed characters that cannot enter the submarine still trying to target the inner walls.
  • Fixed Tigerthresher and other creatures that can't attack the submarine bumping on the doors.
  • Fixed characters occasionally getting stuck while trying to reach the last known position of the previous target.
  • Fixed a crash when the creature is set to attack when provoked and when the damage source is null.
  • Fixed extra creature being spawned when using the <monster> elements in the monster mission definitions.
  • Fixed Hammerhead Matriarch's skirt going throught the walls.
  • Fixed performance issues when creatures are trying to find a path out from the submarine while escaping. Also improved the escaping behavior in general.
  • Fixed Mudraptors sometimes squeezing themselves towards doors without being able to attack them.
  • Fixed monsters not reacting to being fired with turrets unless they can target the attacker.
  • Fixed minor slipping in Mudraptor's walking animation.
  • Weapons and tools now have ai targets that are only activated when the items are used -> shooting monsters should make you much more attractive target than just swimming peacefully around.

Multiplayer:

  • Fixed a bunch of bugs that caused "missing entity" errors. However, there are many different reasons the error can occur, so even though we have not run into the issue anymore during out testing rounds, there is still a chance it may occur in some situations.
  • Fixed inventory items occasionally getting mixed up in the multiplayer campaign.
  • Fixed a bug that caused clients to get disconnected with an "invalid object header" error when a character has a large amount of different afflictions.
  • Fixed collider tunneling when client is slow to send inputs. Caused characters to occasionally noclip through walls when the connection or framerate is poor.
  • Fixed server owner occasionally timing out if loading the round takes too long.
  • Fixed server owner's character occasionally being killed due to round start timeouts.
  • Fixed players not getting notified in any way when their connection to the server has timed out, allowing them to keep playing without being able to interact with anything.
  • Made giveperm/giverank commands suck less by allowing names, endpoints and SteamIDs instead of clientlist id, and allowing users to skip question prompt by adding rank or perm as a second parameter.
  • Fixed multiplayer campaign saves appearing in the single player "load game" menu if they're placed in the singleplayer save folder (leading to a crash if a player starts to load the save).
  • Fixed server not sending condition updates for inactive items, potentially causing the condition to get desynced when all of the components of the item go inactive.
  • Fixed clients only being informed of the reason for their ban the moment they're banned, but not if they try to rejoin.
  • Fixed clients not attempting to reconnect to the server automatically when the connection is lost, forcing the client to rejoin the server manually.
  • Fixed clients sometimes being able to noclip through walls when the framerate or connection is poor.
  • Karma system can be enabled/disabled in the "host server" menu.
  • Option to set the number of password retries before a ban.
  • Fixed voice chat indicators not working in the in-game crew list.
  • Moved "End Round" button to the pause menu.
  • Added a separate server log category for wiring.
  • Fixed clients not relaying console commands that don't exist client-side to the server (i.e. custom commands implemented by a server mod can now be used by clients).
  • Added "killdisconnectedtime" command that can be used to set the time after a disconnected player's character gets automatically killed.
  • Increased default killdisconnectedtime to 2 minutes.
  • Player cap can be adjusted in the server settings.
  • Made "showseed" console command usable by clients.
  • Fixed lobby command (which switches to the single player lobby) being usable in multiplayer.

Bugfixes:

  • Fixes to render order oddities (structures with a depth > 0.5 always rendering behind all items, inconsistent render order between sub editor and in-game). Now structures with a depth of >= 0.9 are always behind everything (and visible through the LOS effect), and item's sprite depth is capped to 0.9.
  • Fixed background structures that are resizeable on both axes always being drawn behind other background structures regardless of the sprite depth.
  • Fixed Kastrull flooding when the drone undocks.
  • Fixed ballast pumps deteriorating in Kastrull's drone despite being unreachable by the players.
  • Fixed sonar transducers consuming no power.
  • Fixed EventManager intensity being calculated incorrectly in multiplayer, causing monster spawns to be more sparse in multiplayer than in singleplayer.
  • Fixed autopilot overshooting and compensating too heavily when attempting to maintain position, causing it to never fully stop on the target position.
  • Fixed charactes being unable to get through multi-layer walls from inside the sub (for example the walls above Humpback's command room).
  • Fixed plasma cutter not cutting through holes in walls.
  • Fixed melee weapons not working inside ruins due to the colliders that block subs from entering the ruins.
  • Fixed fabricator cancellation failing to be communicated under certain circumstances.
  • Fixed fabricator and deconstructor operating faster when run on overvoltage, making it possible to fabricate/deconstruct things almost instantaneously by using relays.
  • Fixed camera position "twitching" when moving the cursor around while unconscious.
  • Fixed crashing if there's no audio device available.
  • Fixed texts in mission/traitor notifications occasionally overflowing outside the border of the message box.
  • Fixed subinventories not opening when trying to heal an unconscious character.
  • Fixed engines causing crashes if MinVoltage is set to 0.
  • Fixed small "twitch" when a character enters or exits a submarine.
  • Fixed starting a combat mission with just 1 player counting as winning the mission.
  • Fixed linked shuttles occasionally spawning at the wrong side of a sub's docking port.
  • Fixed clients being assigned as traitors in combat missions even if there's no-one else in their team.
  • Fixed server lobby screen not scaling correctly after changing to a bigger resolution.
  • Made the screen distortion effects caused by afflictions change less abruptly when the condition of the character changes quickly.
  • Fixed items being swapped from slot to another when combining an item with one that has a higher condition.
  • Fixed lights in deviced bleeding through characters and blurry black "shadow" around characters.
  • Fixed '+' and '-' signs in number input fields being misaligned in Chinese and Japanese.
  • Fixed Workshop item descriptions only showing the first 256 characters.
  • Fixed reactor highlight effect extending outside the reactor sprite.
  • Fixed ID-restricted doors only taking the first ID card in the inventory into account.
  • Fixed crashes in the character editor when creating a humanoid with incomplete limb definitions.
  • Fixed the character editor crashing if no textures were found.
  • Don't allow to save invalid texture paths in the character editor.
  • Decreased the range of some of the motion sensors inside alien ruins to prevent certain rooms from being nearly impossible to get past without getting zapped by an alien coil.
  • Fixed excessively large tonic liquid collider.
  • Fixed accordion collider.
  • Fixed doors not blocking hitscan weapons.
  • Fixed sonar showing everything around the sub when sending out a directional ping and immediately switching to passive.
  • Fixed inability to drag characters from room to another in alien ruins.
  • Fixed crashing if a modded UI style contains multiple child styles with the same name.
  • Fixed wire nodes getting misplaced when flipping wires in the sub editor.
  • Fixed groups of items that include wires sometimes not getting placed at the position of the cursor when pasting them in the sub editor.
  • Fixed currents heavily slowing down the submarine regardless of the force or direction of the current.
  • Fixed some held items vibrating/twitching when moving.
  • Fixed turrets emitting muzzle flash particles in an incorrect direction (the rotation of the particle was correct but the direction it flew towards not, which isn't noticeable with the non-moving vanilla particles).
  • Fixed "skip tutorials" returning to the main menu instead of opening the correct tab when starting a new game.
  • Fixed all items being highlighted in the multiplayer campaign store menu when another player buys something.
  • Fixed setting the number of items to buy by typing a number in the text box being practically impossible in the multiplayer campaign store.
  • Fixed grenades exploding multiple times if you throw one, pick it up before it explodes and rethrow it.

  • Fixed engine sound range being up to 20 times larger than it should be.
  • Fixed monsters occasionally being able to attack through walls.
  • Fixed alarm buzzer not returning to the original rotation when the alarm stops.
  • Fixed a couple of unfair ruin traps (rooms with coil/sensor placement that makes it impossible to pass through without getting zapped).
  • Fixed mechanic tutorial getting softlocked if the player never has an oxygen tank (or aluminium) and sodium in their inventory at the same time. I.e. if they deconstruct the oxygen tanks first and put the aluminium in the fabricator, and then get the sodium and put it in the fabricator.

0.9.6.0[edit | edit source]

Released December 17th, 2019

Networking/multiplayer fixes:

  • Fixed the game occasionally freezing when joining a server.
  • Fixed a bug that occasionally caused clients to disconnect with an "entity not found" error in the multiplayer. In technical terms, the issue occurred when the server spawned an entity with a given ID, sent a network event for that entity, and then spawned another entity that took up the ID of the previous entity. This could happen, for example, if in the multiplayer campaign a player happens to get an item with the same ID as an item in the inventory of another player who isn't currently present, and the other player joins the server. There are still most likely additional bugs that can cause similar error messages, so this fix will probably not get rid of the errors entirely.
  • Fixed start button staying disabled in the server lobby when switching from the campaign mode to another game mode.
  • Fixed clients occasionally getting disconnected due to the campaign store. Happened if a location had changed from one type to another (for example, natural formation to outpost), the players had bought something that wasn't originally available from the location and a new client joined.
  • Fixed clients occasionally being prompted to download subs from the server even if they already have a matching sub.
  • Fixed server having a password even if the password box is left empty in the in-game "host server" menu when hosting with the Linux version.
  • Fixed server name being shortened to one word when hosting from the in-game "host server" menu with the Linux version.
  • Fixed server name length not being restricted when set from serversettings.xml or using console commands.
  • Fixed "ready to start" tickbox disappearing if a client joins while a round is running.
  • Fixed traitors remaining as traitors client-side after restarting the round, allowing them to access the sabotage interface despite not having a traitor objective.
  • Fixed characters occasionally not selecting/deselecting a periscope client-side, causing them to walk in place or not grab the periscope.
  • Fixed male asian heads not appearing in the server lobby.
  • Fixed campaign servers never being filtered out from the server browser when filtering based on game mode.
  • Fixed clients not displaying the "could not connect" popup if the initial connection to a server times out.
  • Fixed door weld state occasionally getting desynced, causing the door to be welded server-side but possible to open client-side.

Electricity fixes:

  • Fixed junction boxes not passing signals to relays.
  • Fixed broken junction boxes and relays carrying power.
  • Fixed devices not receiving power if they're connected directly to batteries/supercapacitors with no relays or junction boxes in between.
  • Fixed light components that receive power from somewhere else than a power input connection not going out when they lose power (e.g. lights on the diving suits).
  • Fixed pumps and batteries operating/recharging faster when receiving overvoltage, with no upper limit, making it possible to for example operate pumps at 10x the speed by connecting them to a relay that's receiving 10x more power than is being drawn from it.
  • Fixed LightComponents being toggled twice when they receive a signal to the toggle connection.

Misc fixes:

  • Fixed "last used" listbox overlapping with the entity visibility tickboxes in the submarine editor on low resolutions.
  • Fixed misaligned colliders on the "Shell A Cap 0 deg A/B" wall pieces.
  • Fixed links disappearing between linked subs and docking ports when loading in the sub editor.
  • Fixed loading freezing for up to 10 seconds if the game cannot fetch the remote content for the main menu (update notifications, changelogs, etc).
  • Fixed lights on devices (junction boxes, nav terminals, reactor) being rendered on top of characters.
  • Fixed lights lagging a little behind moving objects (e.g. diving suit light).
  • Fixed characters being able to grab/heal others when handcuffed.
  • Character editor: don't switch to the limb mode when clicking a limb in the joint edit mode. Fixes difficulties in using the joint angle widgets when the widgets are interloping limb source rects.
  • Character editor: Fixed the texture path field not being copied if the source character has no texture path defined. In this case, we can use a texture path found in one of the limbs.
  • Fixed bots incorrectly reporting problems in the room they are in instead of the room the issues is spotted at.
  • Fixed bots reporting broken devices or asking medical attendance even if they are taking care of those things.
  • Fixed bots saying "put out a fire in hull" instead of using the name of the room when they extinguish a fire.
  • Fixed AITargets staing active even if the entity is not active (for example, the sonar could still be heard by monsters after it's turned off).
  • The bots now only report about issues that have not been already been reported.
  • Fixed monsters attacking doors that are open.
  • Monsters keep pursuing the target if the behavior is "pursue" even when they cannot attack.
  • Bots stop operating devices if a player starts operating them (unless they have been ordered to operate the device).
  • Fixed bots playing the rewiring sound when repairing an item with a screwdriver.
  • Fixed bots sometimes stopping behind a closed door when trying to extinguish a fire.
  • Fixed chat messages occasionally extending below the lower bound of the chatbox.
  • Fixed searchlight and turret lights disappearing before the light is fully off-screen.
  • Waypoint fixes in Kastrull and the drone.
  • Fixed Kastrull flooding when the drone is undocked.
  • Fixed ballast pumps in Kastrull's drone being off by default.
  • Fixed enormous in-game ballistic helmet sprite.
  • Fire extinguishers can't be placed inside toolboxes anymore.
  • Fixed lobby screen not scaling correctly after changing to a bigger resolution.

0.9.5.1[edit | edit source]

Released November 21st, 2019
  • Fixed crashing when attempting to start a tutorial.
  • Fixed Kastrull's drone not being docked to the sub by default.
  • Fixed items occasionally launching through walls/floors when they're spawned or dropped.
  • Nerfed Hammerhead Spawns.
  • Fixed occasional disconnections when the Hammerhead Matriarch releases her spawns.
  • Fixed Hammerhead Matriarch exploding twice when it attacks.
  • Fixed bots sometimes getting stuck in an objective loop, causing them to repeatedly drop and pick up diving suits or spam doors.
  • Fixed bots being allowed to go outside without a diving suit.
  • Fixed characters with a rectangular main collider being unable to use path finding.
  • Fixed microphone volume scrollbar resetting to the maximum value when opening the settings menu.
  • Fixed a bug that caused occasional crashes on Linux when pinging servers in the server list menu.

0.9.5.0[edit | edit source]

Released November 21st, 2019

Misc additions and changes:

  • A new submarine, Kastrull.
  • 6 new traitor missions with much more varied objectives.
  • More variants of all job outfits.
  • 30 new character face sprites.
  • Overhauled job assignment logic to make the job distribution a little more balanced. Now each client gets assigned one of the spawnpoints (and its associated job) according to their job preference, which means that if the sub for example has 2x as many engineer spawnpoints than medic spawnpoints, there tend to be 2x more engineers. When playing with a mod that adds new jobs to the game, spawnpoints that have no job associated with them are considered spawnpoints for the non-vanilla jobs.
    • We would like to get feedback from players about this: does the job assignment seem fair, are people generally getting the jobs they want?
  • New logic components: sin, cos, tan, asin, acos, atan, modulo, round, ceil, floor and factorial.
  • Improved autopilot: much faster and less likely to get stuck.
    • We would like to get feedback from players about this: Is there still incentive to steer manually?
  • AI characters don't set stationary batteries to recharge unless ordered to do so.
  • Items can be made damageable by projectiles, melee weapons and explosions by adding DamagedByProjectiles="true", DamagedByMeleeWeapons="true" or DamagedByExplosions="true" to the config.
  • Nerfed welding fuel + diving mask combo. The tank depletes much faster and one tank is only enough to make the target fall unconscious, not to kill them.
  • Added deconstruction recipes to all drugs.
  • Added huskified face sprites to all characters.
  • Question prompts in the debug console and dedicated server console (such as "enter the reason to ban XXX") can be cancelled by pressing Ctrl+D or Ctrl+Z (or Ctrl+C in the in-game debug console).
  • Welding tools and plasma cutters explode when loaded with the wrong fuel.
  • Removed sodium as a product of recycling fire extinguishers.
  • Added some loose vents and panels to Orca and Typhon.
  • Option to set a name for a character added by a mod without having to configure it in a separate text file. Use displayname="somemonster" in the character element to set the name.
  • Balanced splash screen audio volumes.
  • Alarm buzzers twitch when active to make it more clear where the sound is coming from.
  • Scrollbars that work as on/off switches (e.g. power switches and autotemp sliders in item interfaces) can be toggled by clicking on them.
  • Decreased the chance of selecting a traitor mission that's already been selected during the session.

Multiplayer:

  • Option to choose a "play style" for the servers to tell the players what kind of gameplay and rules they can expect on the server.
  • Improved server browser:
    • More filtering options
      • Same version
      • Show whitelisted
      • Karma enabled
      • Traitors enabled
      • Friendly fire off
      • Voice chat enabled
      • Modded
    • Option to filter by play style.
    • Option to filter by game mode.
    • Added the option to favorite servers.
    • Added a list of recent servers.
    • Added a friends list, you can keep track on which servers your friends are playing at as well as join them directly from the friends list.
    • Miscellaneous layout improvements.
  • Improved server lobby:
    • Improved character customization interface: players now have full control over their appearance.
    • Improved job preferences interface: players can now more easily switch around their class preferences, as well as pick which variation of an outfit they would like to wear.
    • Mission selection is more flexible: mission types can be toggled separately.
    • The campaign interface is displayed directly in the menu, not in a separate view.
    • The submarine preview is displayed directly in the menu without having to open a separate window.
    • The job preferences of other players are indicated in the player list.

      • Allow friendly fire.
      • Allow rewiring.
      • Allow disguises.
    • Miscellaneous layout changes.

Human AI:

  • Changed the logic for automatically unequipping the diving gear, extinguishers or items that are held in hands.
  • Taught the bots to place diving suits, fuel rods and fire extinguishers into right places, if they can't unequip the items without dropping them AND if the current objective is not high priority. The system uses tags/identifiers and two new attributes: "preferredcontainers" in Items and "containablerestrictions" in ItemComponents so it can be adjusted both in the editor and in xml.
  • Improved the code to prevent dead-locks between the AI states.
  • Start looking new oxygen when the current oxygen tank is at 10% instead of starting when it's empty (which often lead the bot to suffocate while doing the objective).
  • Combat: Don't ignore empty weapons when evaluating weapons for the first time (allows to try reloading a weapon before ignoring it as useless).
  • Fight Intruders: Automatically switch weapon when the current weapon runs out of ammo. Find ammunition for the current weapon if no other decent weapon is found. Don't allow to go offensive while armed with poor weapons, like a wrench.
  • Fix Leaks: Improved the operating of welding tools.
  • Rescue: Major refactoring. Allow to heal self. Improve the priority calculation. The priority is now based on the severity of wounds.
  • Taught the bots to look deeper into the inventories (recursive) when seeking items.
  • Changed the decision making on whether or not a bot needs diving gear.
  • The bots now avoid unsafe paths in the idle state or when doing low priority objectives.
  • The bots don't follow targets outside of the submarine.
  • The bots don't stay still when idling underwater. They swim in place instead.
  • Adjusted the combat priorities for the weapons.
  • Increased the minimum initiatives.
  • Adjusted the target evaluation for the Fix Leaks objective.
  • Improved the distance approximations for all AI objectives.
  • Increased the base devotion (how much the current objective priority is boosted).
  • Reduced the shooting distance when the bots are operating turrets.
  • Adjusted the idle waiting, standing, and walking times.
  • Fixed bots getting stuck if the next node was behind a door.
  • Fixed bots getting stuck on ladders when the main collider bottom was slightly lower than the floor level, even though the bot should be able to take off from the ladders.
  • Fixed bots getting stuck on ladders when they need a new target while climbing.
  • Fixed bots ignoring/avoiding targets in hulls when there were dead enemies inside them.
  • Fixed issues in switching empty oxygen tanks to new.
  • Fixed bots unequipping and re-equipping diving gear while ordered to follow another character.
  • Fixed bots not being able to handle things when they cannot find diving gear. Now they should first try to get the gear and if it fails, they should just target a safe hull.
  • Fixed bots shooting friendly characters with turrets.
  • Fixed bots always treating weapons as revolvers.
  • Fixed the loading of smg magazines/fuel tanks etc (because they are different from revolver rounds).
  • Fixed autonomic objectives overriding the user-defined settings (steering, batteries).
  • Fixed bots being able to do things while hand-cuffed.
  • Fixed a dead-end when an item is taken by another character after the target item was defined and before the objective is completed.
  • Fixed item prioritization calculations.
  • Fixed hull safety calculations always using the current visible hulls (which should only be taken into account when the hull is the current hull).
  • Fixed bots abandoning the operate item objective if there was another character operating the item.
  • Fixed bots speaking about success/failure to repair when another character fixes their target.
  • Fixed bots reporting individual failures when doing a loop objective. Should fix bots spamming with the "Cannot reach the target" msgs.
  • Fixed the current objective not being reassigned after sorting the objectives, leading to sorting the subobjectives of the old current objective, which would be fixed only after the next time the objectives were sorted (after 1 sec).
  • Fixed the gap size being misinterpreted when calculating the priority for a fix leak objective.
  • Fixed bots switching repair targets while repairing an item.
  • Fixed bots in some situations facing the wrong direction. The bots should now always face the item they are operating.
  • Fixed bots' ragdolls getting unstable due to constant flipping in some rare cases.
  • Fixed bots not immediately targeting the other rooms when they reach the airlock (when entering the submarine).

Monsters:

  • New monster: Hammerhead Matriarch
  • New monster: Hammerhead Spawn
  • New diving suit sprite for husks.
  • Characters now have a separate property that defines whether or not they can walk, meaning that characters can now enter the submarine even if they cannot walk. When there is no water, the character will fidget around. Also fixes Fractal Guardians flying in non-flooded alien ruins.
  • Monsters now remember the position of the last target even when idling. The memories fade, however.
  • Monsters now flee briefly when being fired at with the turrets. Fixes swarming characters being easy to exploit.
  • Don't allow the monsters to retaliate unless they are in the same submarine as the attacker. Removed the CanRetaliate parameter on character AI that was added in the previous update.
  • Refactored ConditionalSprite: ConditionalSprite now takes Sprite or DeformableSprite as child elements.
  • StatusEffects can now be used to spawn characters.
  • Monster missions now support multiple monsters of different species.

  • Adjusted Mudraptor, Bonethresher and Tigerthersher behavior. Threshers now hunt in packs.
  • Fixed incorrect flipping and mirroring. Disable mirroring on characters that don't need it.
  • Fixed Mudraptors preferring doors over humans.
  • Fixed targeting at wall center position instead of the section position. Fixes hammerheads and bonethreshers targeting destroyed wall sections.
  • Fixed the damage modifiers on hammerheads not working properly.
  • Fixed a crash when trying to create a swarm with characters that have no swarming behavior defined.
  • Fixed monsters not targeting the closest limb when they should.
  • Fixed ai targets not being updated when the character is dead, causing the characters to be too perceivable/not perceivable enough by the monsters.
  • Fixed limbs' lightsources not being visible inside the submarine.
  • Fixed immobilized characters (e.g. stunned, monsters on dry land) occasionally "hanging" mid-air.
  • Fixed draw order issues due to normal sprites and deformable sprites being used on the same characters.

Character editor:

  • Added "TailTorqueBoost" parameter that can be used to prevent long and fast-moving characters, like the Tigerthresher, to get tangled around themselves.
  • "TailTorque" no longer affects the swimming sine amplitude (how strong the tail moves).
  • Sprite orientation no longer affects the damage modifiers.
  • Exposed the ragdoll main limb.
  • Exposed the damage emitters.
  • Exposed the damage sound of damage modifiers.
  • The radial widget angles are now rounded to the closest 10.
  • Fixed characters being able to collide with the submarine, which often caused large monsters to get stunned and impact sounds to be played when they're spawned.
  • Fixed characters moving when they shouldn't.

Bugfixes:

  • Rewrote power distribution logic to resolve several issues and oddities in the way power was distributed across electrical grids, particularly when relays were used. The new system is also less performance intensive, so submarines that had performance issues due to large and complex power grids should now run better.
  • Fixed inability for mods to override jobs.
  • Fixed pumps calculating targetlevel incorrectly when receiving a "set_targetlevel" signal, causing neutral ballast level value in the sub editor to be off.
  • Fixed clients being able to join servers when they're using content packages the server doesn't have, which usually causes the client to get disconnected when a round starts.
  • Fixed clients being able to join servers after enabling a required content package in the settings, even though they need to restart first (leading to errors when a round starts).
  • Fixed "attempted to access a potentially removed character" console errors if a character dies while the client is waiting to apply the character's remote inventory state.
  • Fixed broken waypoints in Typhon that prevented bots from opening some of the doors.
  • Fixed characters being very hard or impossible to hit with melee weapons when they're lying on the floor.
  • Fixed characters placing their feet above a platform when not actually standing on the platform (noticeable in rooms where there's a platform on top of the "actual" floor).
  • Fixed husk eggs not causing a husk infection when injected.
  • Fixed depth sorting not working on damageable structures.
  • Fixed characters stepping on nothing if their feet are below the lowest step of a ladder.
  • Fixed door components being selectable when the door is broken, causing characters to drop from ladders if they interact with a door while climbing.
  • Alien motion sensors don't react to dead bodies to prevent bodies from blocking the way through the ruins by constantly activating coils.
  • Fixes to waypoints and outdated structure sourcerects in Bunyip, Selkie & Venture.
  • Put the shotgun shells in Dugong's, Kastrull's and Humpback's armory inside the shotgun.
  • Fixed clients retaining their original character when taking control of another one in the multiplayer campaign, but keeping the items of the new character.

  • Fixed empty exploding ammo boxes exploding when deconstructed.
  • Fixed old chat messages overlapping in the server lobby after the scrollbar of the chatbox becomes active.
  • Fixed textbox selection not being cleared when pressing Ctrl+Z or Ctrl+R, causing a crash if the selection is outside the bounds of the current text and the player attempts to remove text from the box.
  • Don't allow reporting things while inside ruins.
  • Fixed crashing if a client has written something in the chatbox, gets disconnected and sends the message.
  • Fixed servers showing up in the server lobby after the server has been shut down.
  • Fixed traitor missions not ending when the traitor dies and the traitor retaining their old mission info in the info menu.
  • Fixed dead characters still appearing in the crew list when a client joins mid-round.
  • Fixes to decorative sprites: Rotation property is in degrees, fixed offset anim type being used as the rotation anim.

0.9.4.0[edit | edit source]

Released October 24th, 2019

Monster additions and changes:

  • New character: Bonethresher.
  • New character: Golden Hammerhead.
  • Completely remade the Tigerthresher (new skin, ragdoll, behavior and attacks).
  • Reworked Hammerhead (new ragdoll, adjusted behavior and attacks).
  • Adjusted the behavior of most characters.
  • Medium sized monsters can now more easily trigger impact effects when ramming the submarine.
  • Characters are now allowed to move faster than previously (9 -> 15).
  • Changed the mouth position calculations and redefined the values for all monsters that have the eating behavior.
  • Removed Moloch Baby (Which was just a test. Molochs will be revisited in the next update).
  • Better bend deformations on limbs.
  • Better feedback about hit impacts on limbs when the character takes damage.
  • AI monsters should hit moving targets more easily.
  • Added configurable health regeneration, which is applied when the character is eating a corpse.

  • Added an option to target the attack on specific limb types.
  • Added an option to continue the movement, "following through" the target after the attack.

Modding improvements:

  • Mods can override specific content without having to create a completely new content package. This can be done by surrounding the element with "<override></override>" (for example, an Item or a Character config element you want to replace a vanilla Item/Character with). The overrides work based on identifiers; for instance, if you configure an item with the identifier "wrench" and surround it with the override tags, it will replace the vanilla wrench.
  • Content package load order: the game will first load the core package, then other content in the order of selection (proper ui still pending). The load order is saved in the config_player.xml.
  • Made AI orders and event manager settings moddable.
  • The engine and reactor sound ranges can now be modified in the item XML.
  • The husk affliction can now be modified and applied on any character.
  • Support for multiple simultaneous husk afflictions based on the same system.
  • Support for multiple husk appendages. Made the attachment limb configurable in the affliction definition.
  • Additional content package validity checks during startup: make sure all XML files in the package can be loaded, and disable the package if they can't. Fixes tons of console errors on startup when a mod with invalid XML files is enabled.
  • Don't allow publishing workshop items that contain invalid XML files.
  • Don't allow selecting invalid content packages in the settings menu.
  • Fixed disabled content packages becoming active when they're autoupdated.

  • Option for mirroring limb sprites.
  • Option for hiding the limb sprite (invisible limbs).
  • Multiple minor additions and changes, like an option to enable lights or to display the damage modifiers drawn on the character.
  • Exposed structure sound types.
  • Exposed the mouth position.
  • Exposed the angular damping and density for limbs (removed mass, which was not used).
  • Added a default texture path for ragdolls so that the texture can only be defined once. Limb specific texture definitions override this.
  • Allow to define a group for different species. The characters in the same group are friendly to each other.
  • DecorativeSprites can now be used on character limbs (like on items).
  • Made it easier to adjust the source rect's position with the arrows. Hold CTRL to change the size.

  • Made level ambient lighting darker.
  • Added "pause" console command (only usable in single player).

Bugfixes:

  • Fixed crashing when the recharge speed of a PowerContainer with no interface (e.g. Alien Generator) is adjusted by a signal or a bot.
  • Fixed docking interface becoming active on navigation terminals when any of the submarine's docking ports are close to another docking port, even if the terminal in question is not wired to that port.
  • Fixed an occasional crash when a bot starts retreating away from an enemy immediately after spawning.
  • Fixed clients not creating a download prompt when a sub they don't have is selected by vote.
  • Fixed traitor missions almost always placing the mission-related items inside the same containers.
  • Fixed traitor goal durations being displayed as "duration(xx) seconds" instead of "xx seconds".
  • Fixed Traitor's "find an item" objectives not being considered complete if the target item is inside another item within the traitor's inventory.

  • Fixed servers being able to start the round multiple times by spamming the "start" console command before loading the round finishes.
  • Fixed rewiring sound playing whenever a remote player is using a rewireable device.
  • Fixed subinventories not opening when grabbing another character with no items in the corresponding slot.

  • Fixed damaged item sprites that are set to fade in according to the damage always being drawn at full opacity.
  • Fixed spectators being distributed into teams in combat missions, potentially leading to imbalanced crew sizes.
  • Notify the client using the "togglekarmatestmode" command about the test mode being enabled/disabled.
  • Send karma change notifications when karma has changed by 1 unit or more when test mode is enabled, not just when an action causes an immediate change of 1 unit or more.
  • Fixed adjacent sprites bleeding into the platform and topwindow sprites.
  • Fixed autocompleting submarine/shuttle names when using the submarine/shuttle console commands.
  • Fixed some items (like sonar beacon) attracting monsters even when they're powered off.
  • Fixed inability to open the pause menu if an inventory slot had been highlighted when exiting the game screen.
  • Fixed welded door sprites "twitching" when the submarine moves.
  • Fixed crashing when a character with no hands or arms drops a holdable item.
  • Non-humanoids (i.e. monsters controlled by a player) cannot be assigned as traitors.
  • Traitor missions are considered unsuccessful if the objectives cannot be completed (for example if the submarine doesn't have suitable containers to place the traitor items inside).
  • Fixed the "Barotrauma" title text staying invisible in the main menu when coming back from the credits.
  • Fixed clients not refreshing an item's editing hud when a remote player adjusts the values (i.e. if two players had selected the same lamp and one changed the color value, the other client wouldn't see the value change in the editing hud).
  • Fixed a couple of the additive light sprites being slightly offset from the lamp.
  • Clients don't display client-side vitality changes in healthbars until the actual vitality is received from the server. Fixes health occasionally dropping and then jumping back up if the client predicts damage incorrectly (e.g. if a melee attack hits client-side but doesn't server-side).

  • Reduced repair durations in the engineer/mechanic tutorials.
  • Fixed draggable subinventories staying visible when stunned.
  • Fixed light sprites not being scaled in the sub editor when resizing lamps.

0.9.2.0[edit | edit source]

Released August 28th, 2019

Easier server hosting:

  • Switched to Steam's networking API, which allows clients to connect to servers without the need for the host to forward their ports.

Expanded traitor feature:

  • Multi-step traitor missions that not only make things more interesting to the traitors themselves but also to give the rest of the crew a fighting chance of detecting the traitor.

Anti-griefing:

  • Karma: a system that detects malicious actions and automatically creates a more challenging experience for griefers, or potentially triggers a kickban. The feature is completely optional and the server hosts can decide how aggressively it will react to malicious actions. In a nutshell, you can lose karma for doing dumb things, karma is regained gradually over time and may be increased more rapidly by doing good things, thus negating false positives and also giving you the chance to redeem yourself. Lose too much karma and you'll start to experience increasing levels of inconvenience.
  • Wire griefing is more difficult: wires have to be disconnected from the connection panels at both ends before they can be removed. Disconnected wires can be seen visibly hanging from the device, with noticeable particle effects and sound cues that make it easier to detect and fix wiring problems.
  • Added a built-in overheat warning light and siren to reactors and increased the time it takes for the reactor to catch fire and explode.
  • Option to disable friendly fire altogether.

New items and structures:

New submarine:

  • Berilia, a submarine for 16 players.

Bugfixes:

  • Fixed crashing when selecting doors or gaps in the sub editor.
  • Fixed crashing when combining items inside an ItemContainer (e.g. cabinet, deconstructor).
  • Fixed shuttles not being able to redock into some submarines with unconventionally positioned docking ports. Specifically, if a port needed to be docked to from below but was positioned above the center of the submarine (or vice versa), the docking interface would not activate on the navigation terminal.
  • Fixed docking port using the wrong submarine's position for joint adjustment, causing errors when docking a submarine with greater mass to one with a smaller mass.
  • Fixed an issue that caused occasional ID mismatch errors if a client died during a multiplayer campaign round and disconnected before the round ended.
  • Fixed item editing panel not appearing in wiring mode when selecting a wire in the sub editor.
  • Fixed ability to throw throwable items while unconscious.
  • Fixed bots not using fire extinguishers client-side in multiplayer.
  • Fixed clients not hearing the sound when someone crowbars a door open.
  • Fixed progress bars not showing client-side when cutting/welding doors.
  • Fixed inability to combine items in multiplayer.
  • Fixed occasional "index out of range" errors when loading walls that have been set to a non-default scale in the submarine editor.
  • Fixed inability to scroll the crew list with the mouse wheel when the cursor is over certain parts of the list.
  • Fixed sonar pings stopping mid-way when active sonar is turned off, which could be exploited to stop the pings before they reach a monster further away from the sub.
  • Fixed clients not seeing other characters when entering spectator mode after their character has been eaten by a creature.
  • Fixed clients not seeing other characters in spectator mode after the distance between the submarine and the client's corpse gets great enough.
  • Fixed clients getting stuck to a non-functional game screen if they start a new round before the ending cinematic has finished server-side.
  • Fixed projectiles hitting a character you're standing next to when firing.
  • Fixed characters automatically equipping handcuffs (i.e. handcuffing themselves) if they were picked up when the only free inventory space was the hand slots.
  • Fixed a rare race condition that occasionally caused the game to crash during the loading screen with a "no text packs available in English!" error message.
  • Fixed husk infection being healable with broad-spectrum antibiotics even when the infection has reached the final stage.
  • Fixed attachable items (detonators, electrical components) becoming deattachable without any tools if the sub is saved after deattaching them.
  • Fixed projectile raycasts not taking wall rotation into account, causing the projectiles to hit sloped walls when standing next to them.
  • Fixed PowerTransfer components checking overloads based on the item the recursive power check starts from, not the item that's currently being checked. Caused junction boxes to never break or catch fire in some subs
  • Fixed crashing in the character editor when no textures were found for the selected character.
  • Fixed crashing if a humanoid character has no knees or ankles.
  • Fixed EventManager calculating flooding amount incorrectly, causing floods to only have a very small effect on the intensity value.
  • Fixed batteries and supercapacitors being able to provide power through their signal connections (e.g. "set_charge_rate", "charge_rate_out").
  • Lighting fix: obstruct background lights behind hulls. Previously the background lights would only get obstructed by background structures, causing light to "bleed through" parts with no structures (e.g. humpback's docking port) and windows in the background walls.
  • Fixed item loading being interrupted if any item XML cannot be loaded, causing some items not to be loaded if any of the selected content packages are missing files or contain corrupted item XMLs.
  • Fixed fire sounds not playing when standing inside a fire source.
  • Fixed client names being converted to lower case when comparing them to the name written by the sender, preventing the message from being sent if the name wasn't written in lower case.
  • Pass private messages to the client hosting the server when the message is targeted to the server.
  • Private messages appear in the server log.
  • Fixed plasma cutter and welding tool hit particles being offset from the flame.
  • Fixed steel bar and titanium-aluminium alloy deconstructing to 100% condition items even when degraded (which could be used as an exploit to get infinite coilgun rounds).
  • Fixed holdable items staying in the characters hand(s) when swapping them from a hand slot to another limb slot (for example, when moving a flashlight from a hand slot to the head slot).
  • Fixed text wrapping not working properly with words that are longer than a single line.
  • Fixed deconstructor losing some of the material from deconstructed items if the output container couldn't hold all of the new items.
  • Fixed discrepancies in door welding & repairing logic regarding collision.
  • Fixed a crash when retrieving lobby information with an uninitialized IP.
  • Fixed max player count in server list & duplicate lobby entries.
  • Fixed arrow keys not changing caret position when typing.
  • Fixed doors looking repaired as soon as the condition goes above 0%, even though the collisions aren't re-enabled until the door gets above 50%.
  • Fixed water not leaking through broken doors.
  • Fixed inability to throw items through platforms.

Misc additions and changes:

  • Respawn shuttles now spawn inside the level somewhere near the submarine, instead of always spawning at the beginning of the level.
  • Respawn shuttles don't leave and despawn until a new respawn is pending.
  • Added "respawnnow" console command which immediately dispatches the respawn shuttle.
  • Search for default animation/ragdoll folders from the folder where the character file is located, not from "Content/Characters". Fixes mods not being able to load animation/ragdoll files if the file paths are not defined explicitly in the character configuration file.
  • Improved performance by deleting dead monsters that are far away from the sub and by disabling physics on dead bodies when they stay still long enough.
  • Added option to use conditionals to activate/deactivate ItemComponents. You can take a look at the reactor and junction box config files to see how it's used.
  • Added some indicator lights to junction boxes and reactors.
  • Stun batons don't affect large enemies (molochs, hammerheads, endworms, etc).
  • In wiring mode, items are selected by pressing E instead of clicking. Selecting items with the left mouse button made it very difficult to manipulate the wires because it was easy to accidentally select some device instead of a wire node.
  • Crate/toolbox inventories stay open and can be moved across the screen when the item is equipped.
  • Added limits to submarine name and description length.
  • Delete incomplete file downloads when disconnecting from a server while a file transfer is active. Prevents console errors about corrupted submarine/save files caused by the partially downloaded files.
  • Increased Humpback's battery capacity.
  • Added widgets for manipulating coilgun/railgun rotation limits in the sub editor.
  • Added a command for setting the value of a property on all selected entities in the sub editor (for example, "setentityproperties scale 2" would set the scale of all selected items/structures to 2).
  • Show ballast tanks and airlocks in a different color on the status monitor to make it easier to distinguish which rooms are actually flooding and which are supposed to have water in them.
  • Option to define multiple inventory variants for a character (e.g. to add variation to monster loot).
  • Start playing the main menu music during the loading screen.
  • More reliable human walk sounds (played at specific points of the walk cycle instead of relying on impacts between the feet and the floor).
  • Option to show a 16x16 grid and snap the cursor to it in the sprite editor.
  • Reactor can be controlled with movement keys.
  • Option to add a probability for afflictions applied by an attack.
  • Husk attacks have a 50% chance of causing a husk infection.
  • Decreased minimum item scale from 0.1 to 0.01.
  • The amount of materials received from deconstructing fuel rods depends on the condition of the fuel rod.
  • Reactors keep sending the temperature_out signal after a meltdown.
  • Improved file transfer

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.

  • 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).

  • 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.

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.

  • Flares are activated with the left mouse button instead of E.
  • Nerfed plasma cutters.
  • Made coilgun ammunition boxes deconstructable.
  • Allow to edit the door opening/closing speeds and increase the defaults.
  • 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 a networking issue that occasionally caused clients to get kicked with a "disconnected due to excessive desync" error message.
  • Fixed fires being very hard to put out completely in multiplayer.
  • Fixed items not being repaired after purchasing repairs in the campaign.
  • Removed outdated Launch_BarotraumaServer script from the Linux version (does not work anymore, the dedicated server should be launched by running the file called "DedicatedServer").
  • Fixed server ignoring the max players value set in the "host server" menu and using the setting configured in "serversettings.xml" instead.
  • VOIP improvements (less crackling and pops).
  • Increased oxygen output in vanilla submarines to prevent characters from suffocating when playing with an oversized crew.
  • Fixed occasional console errors when ending a round (causing the round end summary not to appear).

  • 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.
  • Prevent welding doors shut during the tutorials (as the player doesn't have access to any tools to reopen the door).
  • Fixed AI pathfinding when the path is from a submarine to another submarine.
  • Fixed Watchmen looking at the wrong direction.
  • Fixed crashing due to an invalid display resolution.

  • Added a search bar to the store menu.
  • Added search bars to sub lists in campaign setup UI and sub editor.

Bugfixes:

  • Don't allow rewiring and deattaching an item at the same time (happened when interacting with an item while holding both a screwdriver and a wrench).
  • Fixed bots being unable to complete almost any task in the multiplayer due to a bug that caused them to interpret the sub as another crew's submarine.
  • When spawning multiple monsters at the same time, spread them around a bit to prevent the players from getting attacked by a ball of overlapping crawlers.
  • Fixed huge lag spikes when a character tries to escape from an enemy but can't find a path away from it.
  • Fixed file transfer progress bars not being visible in the server lobby.
  • Fixed crashing when attempting to start a mission round with mission type set to None.

  • Fixed excessively bright lights around sonar flora and lava vents.
  • Fixes to item collider sizes.
  • Fixed inability to scroll through long texts in the sub editor's textboxes.
  • Fixed clients not being able to see other characters in spectator if they've died far away from the sub.
  • Fixed non-latin characters not being displayed correctly in Workshop item texts.
  • Don't prevent selecting items in the sub editor when the cursor is on a wire node, because it makes it very difficult (or impossible) to select small items in the wiring mode.

0.8.9.10[edit | edit source]

Released April 6th, 2019

Additions and changes:

  • Added collision sounds to items (e.g. when dropping or throwing items on the floor).
  • Devices that are not currently being used never deteriorate spontaneously.
  • Added a new submarine, "Berilia".
  • Minor improvements to menu layouts.
  • Randomize map seed when opening the "new game" tab.

  • StatusEffects can modify item sound and sight ranges (requires an AITarget).
  • Sonar beacons can be toggled on/off.

Bugfixes:

  • Fixed submarines not being able to move horizontally in multiplayer if not accelerating fast enough.
  • Fixed an inventory syncing issue that occasionally caused items to be dropped when moving them from the inventory to a container or vice versa.
  • Fixed items occasionally dropping from the inventory at a very high speed, sometimes causing them to clip through floors.
  • Fixed idling AI characters causing lag spikes if they can't find a path out of the room they're inside or if the submarine has no waypoints.
  • Fixes to AI characters getting stuck if they fail to reach a leak they're trying to repair.

  • Fixed power not working correctly in some grids with chained relays and junction boxes.
  • Fixed crashing when attempting to publish a sub with a preview image larger than 1MB on the Steam Workshop.
  • Don't allow overwriting vanilla submarines/characters even if the vanilla content package is not selected.
  • Don't allow deleting vanilla subs or subs that are a part of some content package through the sub editor.

0.8.9.9[edit | edit source]

Released April 6th, 2019

Additions and changes:

  • New control scheme: items are selected by left clicking, deselected with right click or esc, and held items are used on devices by pressing E (e.g. when rewiring with a screwdriver or repairing something with a wrench). The new controls are somewhat experimental; the intention is to make them more intuitive to new players. You can still switch back to the legacy control scheme from the game settings.
  • Set default radio chat keybind to R and creature attack keybind to Mouse3.
  • MODDERS, PLEASE NOTE: Moved crafting recipes from the fabricator xml to the xmls of the items. Makes it possible for modders to add new craftable items without having to modify the fabricators.
  • Some menu layout improvements.
  • Camera movement is disabled completely when an item interface is open (not just when the cursor is on the interface).
  • Option to disable the camera pan/zoom effects from the game settings.
  • Option to set a custom preview image for subs.
  • Allow aiming on Ladders when not moving.
  • Characters play "Entrance of the Gladiators" on the Guitar when wearing a Clown Mask.
  • Display a warning on the Status Monitor when docked to an outpost ("Docked to X, undock before attempting to maneuver the submarine").
  • Improvements to the line of sight effect. Prevents ugly-looking artifacts in spots where two wall pieces meet.
  • The server gives the "None" permissions to new clients, allowing server hosts to automatically give specific permissions to all clients.
  • Increased submarine masses to make it less easy for characters to push them around.
  • Ping direction is shown on the sonar display when adjusting the direction slider even if directional ping is not enabled.
  • Tweaked charybdis' AI, attacks and animations.
  • Nuclear explosions cause radiation sickness.
  • Reduced structure damage done by reactor explosions.
  • Higher-resolution submarine preview images.
  • Added a notification that tells where cargo spawns at the start of a round.
  • Let the camera zoom out further when controlling a large monster.
  • Added a longer delay to getting killed by pressure (5 seconds in max pressure).
  • Made the pressure-zoom-in effect appear as soon as the pressure in a room starts to rise.
  • Added blood particle effects when under high pressure.
  • Some optimization to reduce loading times.
  • Added a search bar to fabricators.
  • Increased the range of docking port sounds and added a subtle camera shake when locking the ports to make it more noticeable when a sub docks.
  • Made all new medical items fabricable.
  • Automatically put the currently equipped item in the inventory (no matter if it's one or two handed) when picking up items that require two hands.
  • Job preferences can be edited mid-round in the info menu.
  • Slightly reduced the amount of oxygen characters consume from hulls.
  • Enemies don't attack outposts or targets inside it anymore.


Multiplayer fixes:

  • 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.

0.8.9.5[edit | edit source]

Released March 5th, 2019

Bugfixes:

  • Fixed alien vents crashing the game when there's a character nearby.
  • 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:

  • Added some supplies to vanilla submarines.
  • Balanced item deterioration rates and adjusted neutral ballast settings in vanilla subs.
  • 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
  • Made molochs slower.
  • Watchmen cannot be dragged or grabbed.
  • AI characters can give treatment to characters who aren't unconscious.
  • Added a button that dismisses the tutorial popups to prevent accidentally closing the popups.
  • Underwater scooters now attract monsters.
  • Improvements and balancing to vanilla submarines.
  • Made alien ruin walls more durable.

  • Baby moloch, doo doo doo doo doo doo
  • Fixed console errors in the chemical shipment mission due to auxiliorizine being still present in the mission configuration despite the item being removed.
  • Made coilgun ammunition boxes craftable and purchaseable, coilgun bolts cannot be purchased anymore.
  • Fixed AI-controlled husk not spawning when a huskified player dies.
  • Fixed AI crew occasionally going outside to fix leaks.

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]
