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 ❤️

image.thumb.png.01ba9075edfcf62be97d56928ca5b476.pngSo apparently in the character creator (or whatever it's called) isn't showing the heat body or the webbed paws, even though I have them in.

Probably due to dominancy issues. Try changing it so both recessive and dominant is Heat Body and Webbed Hind Legs. That should help.

I accidentally deleted the label things in the animal names notepad file and I don't remember what they were. I can't get them back and I can't find anywhere where it says what they were. I think it was like [MaleSyllables] and the same with females and [MaleAnimalNames] and the same with females but I don't know the exact names so I can't rewrite them. Pls helpppppp!

How do I get to the action point colour & name syllables? I use macOS and I've gone to the "package contents" but I can't find them anywhere. Are the files only on windows? Please help!

Edit: I should've posted some screenshots too, sorry if they are too blurry.210126225_ScreenShot2019-04-08at4_11_25pm.thumb.png.4d1df354d5b2bcc91f849f2d2ce559ab.png

I didn't think of that though I still cant find the files :P

Did you try to follow the file path? What exactly is your problem. Like at what step do the issues appear? :) (and are you on windows, if you are on Mac then I am sorry I have no idea where they are)

Did you hit "Check code"? Hit that, then click the drop-down arrow, select the preview branch (should be named something like NicheTesterBranch) then it will update!
