New weapon: Hunting bow

A new weapon is being worked on: the hunting bow. When hunting with the bow you hardly cause any noise that can be detected by the dinosaurs. The bow naturally does less damage than firearms. Range is also limited compared to firearms. You will be able to retrieve the arrows you shot.

Dinosaur AI improvement: Herbivores may stop chase

We are working on an improvement to dinosaur AI where herbivores may stop chasing the player. This will be possible if the player has not been aggressive toward the dinosaur. The herbivore feels threatened when seeing the player close and might attack but would stop attacking if the player is not aggressive toward it.

Other improvements

  • Updated multiplayer system
  • Improved bush details

Bug fixes

These and other bug fixes will be included to the next update:

  • Fixed memory leak in Pathfinding System that caused memory usage to grow endlessly when going back and forth between menu and the game
  • Fixed player in some cases unable to move when starting game
  • Fixed issue that could occur after starting a solo game after playing as a client in other game
  • Fixed an issue with full storage box that might lose an item after disconnect

These were some of the features that you will be seeing in the next update.
