Update #50 - 06/14/2017 Edit

AI System Edit

Kythera now runs all AI on top of our optimized "animal" system. There will likely be some AI issues related to moving to the animal system that we will fix in future updates.

Traps Edit

  • Several types of traps have now been added to the game
  • All traps will be removed on a server restart (they are not base building items and can be placed anywhere)
  • Most traps are crafted, but some can also be found in the world
  • Some traps are destroyed when triggered
  • Some traps are disabled when triggered and need to be reset
  • To reset some traps requires an item in your inventory - flare trap, for example
  • Traps can be packed up and moved
  • Traps can be shot to damage, destroy, and trigger them
  • Some traps need a guide to be made

Servers Edit

Adjusted default time so daytime lasts 6 hours (real time) and nights are only 1.5 hours. This change gives most players the experience to play during daylight hours in game. Server renters can still override the default times
