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 ❤️

For the colors you need html color codes. I use this site: https://html-color-codes.info/

And then you just copy paste the codes into your ini file.

Thank You!

I think they were asking how to get to the file, like where is it?

Yes, that's what I'm asking, lol. I can't seem to find it if I follow the instructions

The App data folder might be hidden, that was the case with mine. This video helped me maybe it'll help you. This might help you too DawnTDS .

How do I get to the properties thing and the beta tab? I'm having trouble with that sense i'm not to good with technology....

Follow these steps:

  1. Right-click Niche on the Steam library
  2. Select “properties” on the bottom
  3. A new tab should open up; go to the beta tab
  4. Enter the code
  5. Wait until your game updates and play!

I can't get to "TeamNiche" folder. I go to LocalLow but It just says "Microsoft"

I really want to customise the names but I can't! Help, please!

Do you have your hidden files visible?

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.

Okay i just figured out to do this so basically you type %appdata% in the bottom left searchbar (don't worry i'll send pics on the whole process) then go up to where it says appdata click then once in the file go up to again to the appdata and go back then you should see local low now you just do the rest of what philo said and then use hex colors (sorry i couldn't add pictures)
