New Version 1.1.9 is now on the tester branch

Recommended Posts

Hey folks :)

We just uploaded a new version (1.1.9) of the "Sandbox settings" update on the tester branch!
Please don't forget that this is a tester branch. Things are buggy here.
If you want to play with precious save files from earlier versions, it's adviced to make a back up first.

What has changed in this new version?
 

Improvements:

  • Baby animals can no longer collect insects
  • Sticky Tongue creatures can now only spawn in certain biomes
  • Added Try Attack and Try Swoop Interaction for Crabbit

Fixes:

  • Fixed shadow bug
  • Fixed Try Attack immortal Rabbils bug
  • Crabbits no longer spawn on Nichelings and stand on tree fields
  • Fixed bird sound even if no bird spawned
  • Wild Animals can no longer walk around when they are frozen, stunned, paralyzed
  • Fixed animal skills display problem im family tree
  • Fixed animals that had their eyes closed after being warmed up


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


It would be especially great if you can keep an eye out for:

  • Test the new Win Conditions!
  • How are the Rogue Males reacting when you attack them with a female?
  • How are the spawn rates for wild animals? Too many?

 

Thanks for your support ❤️

Wow you guys are fast! Now I know that in Niche language "coming out later this week"="coming out tomorrow"!

Even though it's not a typo, it should still be in the niche dictionary.

All of those seem to be fine. Rogue Males are more skittish when my females hit them (all the females had at least 2 strength and I didn't encounter a big body/ spiky body rogue). They still sometimes breed when the female runs out of turns, but not when the female attacked them right before that.

Win conditions seems to be working once you complete them all (I only added two simple ones)

Spawn rates seem to be a lot better. The wanderers still are very young but you don't get overrun anymore. I think I got four in my 50-55 days tribe on Grass Mingle and 3-4 on 30-40 days on peaceful meadow.

I wouldn't mind having even less wanderers around, to make them really rare, but this is already way better than before :D

I personally like lots of wanderers. Though I agree that last version there were quite a few in such a short amount of time. I'd love to have that entity spawn slider someday, so we could each pick our own preferences :D

A great idea would to add a map editor so people can make their own maps to play in sandbox because the same maps can get repetitive

Tried to get as many things as possible fixed in this week, since we won't have much time in the next 2 months xD

Wonder why? anyways, the try swoop for crabbits, I think, is unnecessary as I think the crabbits are knocked over for the aerial attack. Also it adds a little more use to wings. (they need a bit... more. For the struggles of breeding it? well at least its hard for me even on Snowy Mountains! ...not sickly.)

@Aetherskye Niche doesn't pay all the bills (only about 1/4 of them actually), so we need to constantly work towards new game releases or we will be brrooooke.

I need help finding how to update on GOG. Com

Some one please. 

 

Can't. I got GOG too, but since this is a "beta build", you can only get it on Steam. You and me just have to keep waiting for the actual release. Hopefully soon, @philo?
