Patch notes are copied from the official Stonehearth blog entry here.

Water, Part 1[edit | edit source]

Lakes now spawn in the world, and water behaves rationally as the terrain is deformed. There’s still a lot to do here: rivers, improvements to the simulation, swimming, and the ability to use water as a resource.

Building Improvements, Part 1[edit | edit source]

The building system has gone through a major upgrade. This is a work-in-progress. Expect bugs and unfinished features.

  • You can now create multi-story buildings using the slab, grow-walls, and grow-roof tools! This is especially buggy at this stage of the Alpha, but feel free to try it out.
  • The road and building designers have been merged into a new GUI.
  • Hearthlings are smarter about building shapes created out of slabs.
  • Many more building patterns

Combat Improvements[edit | edit source]

  • Part 2 of the Goblin Campaign: Wolf Raiders! Send your hearthlings to free the wolves from their cages before their trainer can turn them on you.
  • Goblin Camp boss and associated minions are now appropriately armed and buffed.
  • Wandering undead now spawn at night.

UI Improvements[edit | edit source]

  • Building editor redesign. It’s now much easier to place and build buildings based on templates.
  • New menu GUI. Reorganized the menu options to make more sense. Some hotkeys have changed.
  • In the citizen UI. Clicking a row will not focus the camera on that Hearthling.
  • In the embark screen, show star ratings for vegetation, wildlife, and minerals.

Performance Improvements[edit | edit source]

  • AI: Stonehearth can now handle many more Hearthlings thinking and working at the same time.
  • Mining large regions and building long roads takes much less CPU time.
  • Reduced batch-counts for 3D rendering.

Bug Fixes[edit | edit source]

  • Hearthlings used to have difficulty mining out ceilings when already underground. They will now reserve stepping stones to allow them to reach and remove ceiling blocks.
  • Floating trees are fixed.
  • Enemy camps no longer spawn astride cliffs.
  • Altered requirement equations for new citizens, net worth, food calculations

  • Properly sort auto-saves by date along with all the rest of the saves

  • Nerf the amount of gold you receive when selling pelts
  • Fixed save/load bugs related to farms
  • Fixed many bugs in roofs for multi-story buildings
  • Rendering improvements for scaffolding. Lots of scaffolding should no longer slow down the game.
