Patch Notes[edit | edit source]

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

  • 64-bit Client! We are now shipping both 64-bit and 32-bit versions of the game. If you’re running a 64-bit OS, we highly suggest using the 64-bit version. Choose your game version from the System tab of the Settings screen.
  • New Harvesting Commands. The new commands are:
    • Clear, to completely destroy unwanted items
    • Cancel Orderm to undo previously issued harvest commands
    • Loot, to steal items that belong to someone else. For now this means just the goblins
  • Combat Rebalance. Each individual goblin is now much more of a threat, but they will come at you in fewer numbers. Also, there are now serveral different kinds of goblins, with different stats and behaviors.
  • Combat Scenarios. The goblins now organize themselves into structured raiding camps. You’ll need to find a way of dealing with them once they set up camp near your town.
  • Combat Music! The music will now change when one of your hearthlings sees an enemy.
  • Shops. Travelling merchants will visit your town every now and then. You can sell your excess inventory for gold, and use that gold to buy from all merchants
  • Autosave! Turn autosave on and off from the save/load screen. When on, the game will save every 5 minutes.
  • Bug Fixes
    • In the build HUD, don’t show zones that the player doesn’t own.
    • Fix display of ghost item rendering on structures
    • Inanimate objects no longer write journal entries when they die
    • Fix tearing down buildings after construction has started
    • More region calculation optimizations
    • Speed up the ambient-occlusion algorithm
    • Fix bug in the selection of doors, windows, and doodads in the building designer
    • Significant performance increases to nav-grid calculation (used by the pathfinder). The game should not longer hiccup when building roads or mining.
    • Properly restore real-time timers on load (fixes zombie worker bug)
    • Fix demotion of the Shepherd
    • Fixes to calculation of water-tight regions (shhhh, you’re not supposed to know about water yet)
    • Fix for unexplored region being misplaced on load occasionally
    • Fix bug where job talismans were not properly assigned to their workshops
    • Increased logging infrastructure to help us better diagnose your automatic crash reports
    • Error boost::interprocess::bad_alloc should be eliminated, or at least very greatly reduced.
    • Clicks will no longer go “through” the UI and hit the game world when the game is not exactly 1.777:1 aspect ratio. AKA, the “ghost UI” bug
    • The chromium log no longer spams when starting or loading a game
    • Fixed script error when growing corn
    • Fix bug where on some systems the game would take several minutes to startup or load when there were many save games present
