Suggestion

Hey folks :)

We just uploaded a first version of the new "Sandbox settings" update on the tester branch!
What has changed in this new version?

New features:

  • New ability, Insect collecting
  • Insect in the swamp can now be collected and swooped if the Nicheling has the Insect Collecting ability
  • New animal type “Defender Bear”
  • New animal type “Peaceful Bear”
  • New gene Bat Head
  • New gene Savanna Horns
  • New gene Bat Wings
  • Nicheling names can now be customized via a file
  • Gem colors can now be customized via a file
  • Added new sandbox settings:
    • Age and pregnancy duration settings
    • Start animal amount and gene settings
    • Damage and healing multiplier settings
    • Food and nesting material start amount settings
    • Blind gene mode setting
    • All genes unlocked setting
    • Tribe size limit setting
    • (Achievements are disabled if you play with custom sandbox settings)
       

Improvements:

  • Added exhibiton mode 
  • Unlocked genes are now highlighted in the mutation list
  • Added gene name to gene unlocked message
  • Reduced amount of Balance Bears that can spawn
     

Fixes:

  • Apes can no longer move through jungle rivers
  • Wild Nichelings drown themselves less often
  • Moved tailfin body part a bit to avoid collision with water body
  • SetGene and SwitchGender console command should no longer break the game or cause bugs
     

Some things are still missing, we're working on them:

  • New gene Sticky Tongue
  • Termit hills in Savanna
  • (Maybe) Basic options to deactivate field occupants (aka switch off the rogue males)
  • (Maybe) Very basic options to create challenges
     

How you can customize the animal name setting:
Open the file: C:\Users\username\AppData\LocalLow\Team Niche\Niche - a genetics survival game\AnimalNames.ini
Add new syllables and names, don't forget to save.

How you can customize the gem colors:
Open the file: C:\Users\username\AppData\LocalLow\Team Niche\Niche - a genetics survival game\ActionPointColors.ini
Add new colors, don't forget to save ^^


Please help us to test if all the new things are working!

To do so, you can head over to Steam.
Right click on Niche in your game library, select properties, open the Betas tab, enter the password.
The password is: NicheTesterBranch
Select tester_branch from the drop down. The game should now be updating. If now, restart Steam.
Happy testing and please report all bugs here. Thank you ❤️

what does forbidden genes mean?

and i need help changing the gem colours, i read where to find them but i can't find it.

also it's kinda strange editing a creature without seeing it

Forbidden genes means the randomly generated nicheling won't have those genes

As for changing gem colours, I tried but failed, it's in Niche folder and it's like a notepad file (the icon has a little gear on it)

We have a new competitor to Derp Snout. That is officially the ugliest thing I've ever seen but I'll probably get used to it.

To be fair, that colour scheme really doesn't help, I like my pink bat a little better (but yeah it is definitely more an ugly bat than a cute bat, but tbh I love how hideous it looks)

Okay, that does look cute. I wonder what it looks like with different eye colors? Also, is the Tailfin icon for Swimming? And the Hearing and Smelling icons have changed, too!
