    Fixed

    Voxel mesh data is now saved to file rather than being fetched from the mesh at runtime and changed these meshes to not be CPU accessible anymore. This helps our dedicated server as well as improving mining performance and memory usage

    • Tweaked overcast curves for biomes to fix clouds brightening up night sky
    • Fixed issue caused when applying cave context in the right order – misordered the reverb on mammoth causing it to not feel reverberant enough
    • Fix invalid audio component reference in dropship anim blueprint which was causing error spam on dedicated server build. Also tidied up the blueprint a little for clarity
    • Fixed an issue with bolt action rifle where the spacializer override was set to 10 percent for other players, causing gunshots to be audible everywhere
    • Fixed the descriptions on many food buffs to better represent the stats they provide
    • Fixed bug in editor item creator wizard that displayed most custom D_ItemsStatic row entries as D_Actionable type. Fixed bug where selecting a preset or template in the ‘Misc’ section of the item creator wizard wasn’t refreshing the list of modified table rows
    • Allowed the Brazier and Rustic Bench to be placed outside
    • Added new page to Item Creator Wizard that allows optional creation of new D_ProcessorRecipe
    • Fixed crash in AISpawnBehaviour.cpp when trying to clean up spawned AI without any players connected to the server. Made logging in EnvQueryGenerator_NearbyTargets Verbose to prevent spam in logs

    Fixed an issue causing stockpile missions to incorrectly update their description if they have more units than required. Fixed clients constantly seeing the thruster on stockpile ships

    • Fixing issue where Ammo that was readied in bows would not save its custom stats & alteraions when reloading the game. This is now fixed and custom crafted arrows will now retain their properties

    • Fixed arrows despawning in animals before players can collect them, in world projectile actors (meshes) attached to an animal will still despawn on decay (for performance), despawned projectiles will be available for collection from corpses (skin or carry), attached projectiles can still decay (and become unavailable for harvest) during the fight, before the animal is killed, this does not affect arrows that break or do not hit an animal, but is fairer to players
    • Fixing Build Valiation Error Caused by Unsaved Datatable
    • Fixed explosive arrow audio not playing at longer distances for clients. This was due to rep distance culling of ballistics, so have added an option in ballistic audio data to switch to an alternative implementation where the impact sounds are played on the spawned payload (which is net relevant at high distances) instead. Also set up frag grenades to use this option
    • Fixed log spam in BP_AISpawner::GetTetherDebugName and BP_NavigationCheckpoint::ValidateCheckpoint when there were zero players connected to a game. Made RowHandle NetSerialization logging VeryVerbose to prevent it filling up Dedicated Server logs
    • Cave worm no longer tries to play SandWorm hit react montage when critical hit, fixes log warnings
    • Improved Wolf LookAt Control Rig; Wolves should more accurately aim at their current target when attacking
    • Fix Player can cancel skiinning by left clicking with the knife, ensure BPIcarusPlayerControllerSurvival::CanPerformInputAction listens to montage animation locks, allow the player to cancel skinning only with interact, this means that the player can not move, look, change weapons etc. whilst skinning, the only means to cancel skinning is to press interact a second time whilst skinning
    • Adjustments to scorpion armored boss footsteps to match intensity / speed of updated animation speed
    • Fixed critical hit error when non player entities fire projectiles

    Fix Player can cancel skiinning by left clicking with the knife, ensure BPIcarusPlayerControllerSurvival::CanPerformInputAction listens to montage animation locks, allow the player to cancel skinning only with interact, this means that the player can not move, look, change weapons etc. whilst skinning, the only means to cancel skinning is to press interact a second time whilst skinning

    • Fixed an issue causing drinking water to prevent swimming applying the wet modifier and players being set on fire. Players can still use waterskins to douse themselves by using them from their action bar
    • Updating Logic so we retain drinking water causing fire to be extinguished, but modifying the cooling drink modifier so the wet modifier can now be applied as inteded. This means that players will be able to both drink water and get the cooling modifier and also get the wet modifier from entering water, which was previously blocked unintentionally
    • Fixed an issue causing Deep Ore Vein’s highlight text to only show for the host
    • Fix When all stomach slots are full, eating food that gives the same buff but is a different type of food does not refresh the buff, some meat items provide the same consumable, check stomach contents matching on the consumable provided by an item rather than the item in a prepass, this means that modifier lifetime will reset when eating an item that provides the same consumable modifier as an item in the stomach
    • Corrected textures on T3 Alteration Bench
    • Added version 2 of Tier 3 Alteration Bench mesh, textures, materials, and destructable mesh
    • Attempted fix 2 for Floor Torch Niagara effects not resuming correctly on prospect resume, this time enable Reset bool and revert back to previous Set Active node

    • Fixed gold yield attachment recipe cost
