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 ❤️

I'm loving the new update so far! Everything is working just fine for me :D

I have just one question, would it be possible to have an option for the randomized genes to be completely random? What I mean is that every gene could have the same chance to be selected for your starting nichelings, because right now there are some genes that are never selected due to very low or nonexistent chance (like the bearyena/prehistoric genes or rare immunities) while others like the long snout or the normal ears are super common; I think it'd be funny to start the tribe with crazy looking nichelings without having to put the most common genes in the forbidden option.

And you could keep the option with the normal chances for those who prefer it that way...

What do you think?

 

(I don't really know if I've explained it clearly or not, sorry if it's a bit confusing 😅😅)

(Also I don't know if this is the right place to suggest it, because it's some kind of feedback for the new update, so... tell me if I should post it anywhere else)

Wait a second...

ALERT, ALERT! NEW ADDITION TO THE DICTIONARY INCOMING! @Lilytuft , ADD THIS IMMEDIATELY! 

 

Ah, yes. Nicheling genes. The wonderful snouts, like Digging Truck and Purrsnot. And those new wings, Bad Wings. I don't know why they're called that, they seem pretty cool to me.

I had problems finding it for ages as well as I couldn't find the AppData folder (I still can't, I've just bookmarked the direct file) If I'm remembering correctly, what I did was go to 'this PC' and then search for locallow in the search bar. It took a while but then it brought up the folder 'locallow' in AppData and from there I just clicked on the bit that said Team Niche

Yay! Thanks, that helped. I copied the files to my desktop so I can always find them!

I'n not sue if it's a glitch or my laptop just messes up, but when I enter the Family Tree some of the nichelings' names and Circle Icon (IDK the official name) merge, and unless  move them, it stays merged? 

 

Also, how do you get the customisable Gems? I honestly can't figure it out

go into the name file here, add in your bits and make sure to save :)

Niche Files.png

just go to the ActionPointsColors file and edit the codes with your own color codes. I can't go and find (aka I'm lazy and it's 10 pm) a website with the codes on it, but you can just look it up.
