Icarus Patch Notes – October 14, 2022

New Content

  • Added framework for Husbandry talent tree. – Renamed Construction talent group to Habitation
  • Added base class for Spike Traps and cleaned up logic for Hedgehogs, basic Wood Hedgehog will now damage players, hedgehogs deal 50% damage to players
  • Added ranks to Husbandry tree talents. – Renamed Husbandry tree talents from placeholder names to more accurate names
  • Adding new Stats for Husbandry Talents
  • Added stats to Husbandry talent points
  • Updating Husbandy talents to include new stats
  • Setting up modifiers for new taming aura’s
  • Setting up crafting cost reductions for saddles and taming equipment
  • Adding new TamedCreatureModifiers Table for Determining the stat transfer between player and tamed creature / juvenile
  • Setting up Virtual stats for new husbandry stats
  • Hooking up Player States related to Riding Creatures (Oxygen, Food, Water Consumptions and Exposure Resistance)
  • Adding new Stats for Player Husbandry Talent Tree
  • Adding Missing Virtual Stats for Older Taming stats so we can work with the new system
  • Updated stats on Husbandry talents to fix build validation error.
  • Increased Buffalo Mount Health Regeneration
  • Players will now be kicked out of the mount inventory screen if player/mount distance becomes too large. Mounts now use generic ragdoll behaviour shared with other NPCs
  • Linked new stats to Husbandry talents.
  • Updated Husbandry talent and related stat descriptions
  • Creatures mounted by local player play audio when taking fall damage
  • Players are now prompted with a dialog to set name when first claiming a tamed mount. Shifted ‘open mount inventory’ functionality into mount class instead of inside actionable
  • Added first pass of Husbandry talent tree background
  • Setup specific XP events for Moa, Juvenile Moa and Juvenile Buffalo.
  • Enabled Juveniles to be counted towards baby animal kills and their respective parent creature type kills
  • Adding Husbandry talent tree background asset
  • Mounts and Juveniles will now have any player-owner driven stats applied to them when claimed, or when led by a new player in the case of juveniles. In the case of session reload, mounts and juveniles will wait for their most recent owning player to reconnect before reapplying relevant stats. Implemented following stats for use with husbandry talent tree: JuvenileFriendlyToPredators, TameSleepRequirement, IsJuvenile, IsMounted
  • Tamed mount food/water is no longer reduced when their current level tile is unloaded
  • Juvenile taming tooltip now switches temp requirement icon based on current environmental temperature. Fixed taming temperature virtual stat using the wrong base stats
  • Added ability to feed and give water to mounts from currently equipped hotbar item. Nutritional value of food is now counted when mounts/juveniles go to eat, meaning it will take more than one item to completely satisfy hunger

Fixed

  • Fix closed doors and windows sounding open after respawn. There is a potential issue with initialisation order, so try to set the open FMOD parameter again if it fails the first time on BeginPlay
  • Optimization pass on Buildables textures. Consistency pass on texture settings and reducing 4k textures to save memory
  • Optimized some assets with high triangle counts to improve performance
  • Remove sequence reference from Cave diorama causing unnecessary asset loads, wasting memory
  • Numerous texture optimizations and settings consistency pass to save memory
  • Fix LOD settings on Dead Prospetor meshes (LOD3 was 5k triangles), should have 6 LODs with the final being <1k
  • Delete unused Tree meshes which have bad LODs and no materials
  • Optimized and/or deleted unused assets in VFX/TRE folder to improve performance
  • Add LODs to assets missing them or needing settings improved. Delete unused assets
  • Fixed inaccurate collision on Scorpion Hedgehog mesh causing hits to fail often
  • Add new option to Graphics Menu (Limit Poolsize To VRAM) which may help alleviate blurry textures on GPUs with not enough memory. Note: this is enabled by default and should only be disabled if you are having texture issues. Disabling it may cause issues/crashes
  • Remove some of the many old variations of WIP HAB levels to allow easier cleanup of old otherwise unused assets. Deep chained asset references result in expensive assets being shipped unnecessarily, causing larger builds, bigger load times and more memory consumption
  • Removed Prospect007 entry from Terrains DT to fix validation error
  • Remove old levels which cause a ton of unnecessary references and make cleanup of old assets impossible
  • Prevent graphics settings from being applied before the graphics subsystem is ready, reset the resolution scale when entering/exiting DLSS/FSR, ensure r.ScreenPercentage CVar calls are made with ECVF_SetByScalability priority so that the LegacyScreenPercentageDriver can make changes, this means that resolution scaling works correctly (when DLSS/FSR are switched off) and multiple combinations of settings are applied
  • Move marker for this quest to a new serialization system (‘MapSearchArea’ vs ‘LocationSearchArea’), reload the mission several times to ensure the marker now always shows up, this means that the map marker should always appear after reload on the station to station mission
  • Accolade: Ravenous only tracks food consumed when consuming stack, wired PlayerTracker to consume food (of stack size 1) on right click ‘consume’, different code path from right click ‘consume stack’, this means players are awarded progress towards consumption accolades when comsuming single food items as well as stacks of food items
  • STRANGE HARVEST: Fixed typo in quest description
  • HOMESTEAD: Updated Rustic Statue objective to Rustic Icarus Statue, to better guide players to the correct statue to craft
  • Added Sandworm boss to all Olympus Exploration missions (min 1, max 4)
  • Styx has different Biomes from Olympus, so map accolades to atmospheres rather than biomes, this means that players correctly attain progress towards Biome accolades on Styx (Scorched Traveller, Forzen Traveller et al.)
  • Voyager Mission – Fixed Den item replenishment
  • Strange Harvest: Fixed respawn on boss to ensure respawning on prospect reload
  • Strange Harvest: Fixes issue preventing objective particles to appear
  • Fixed Holdfast Outpost getting stuck on preparing geometry when crossing into the B4 tile by adding the missing level bounds actors which guarantee the correct levels are loaded
  • Fixed weather timeline UI not updating correctly when mounted
  • Fixed bug where talent tree view could break when trying to assign talent points while mounted
  • Fixed bug where mounts and juveniles still wouldn’t attempt to move to beds or water troughs if they were off navmesh
  • Juvenile taming tooltip now switches temp requirement icon based on current environmental temperature. Fixed taming temperature virtual stat using the wrong base stats
  • Fixed bug where talent tree view could break when trying to assign talent points while mounted
  • Hand-feeding a mount will now apply a moderate amount of health regen, with the duration changing based on food’s nutrition. Mounts can now be affected by warm and cozy buff
  • Adding in all base AI setup for the Rock Dog, including all anim montages and placeholder stat values, still needs lava state hookup and lava based attacks to be completed
  • Fixed Nurturing Presence aura not affecting juvenile taming speed. Fixed NPCs not being able to receive aura modifiers
  • Fixing inherited collision on the wood gate that was stopping arrows, it is a door base BP which has the collision there to stop multiple doors being placed on top of eachother
  • Fixed bug where cave modifier / visual effects wouldn’t apply correctly when entering a cave while mounted
  • Fixed bug where Juveniles/Mounts would stop short of their bed/trough when interacting with it. Juveniles and Mounts should hang back a little more when following player owner. Fixed bug where taming speed stat wasn’t affecting the overall tame duration as expected; reworked the internal stats driving taming speed / duration
  • Extended the level streaming distance on Holdfast Outpost to solve the preparing geometry screen appearing when crossing into the B4 tile
  • Increased Buffalo mount carry weight limit to 300kg, Pack Harness adds an additional 300kg carry weight capacity
  • Fixed juveniles not being ignored by hostile creatures when using the ‘One With Nature’ talent
  • Implement audio cues when player manually feeds or waters mounts. Audio refs still to be added
  • Adding sounds and events for mounts being manually fed / watered
  • Fixed bug where player would consume held food item when hand-feeding mounts. Mounts and Juveniles will now reset the spoil timer on stacks of food left over after feeding from troughs
  • Fixed bug where player wouldn’t have their internal ‘IsMounted’ stat removed when dismounting from saddle
  • Strange Harvest: Significantly increased tether distance on boss to prevent unintentional resetting
  • Fixed bug where the ‘Feed’/’Give Water’ tooltip would show when looking at a mount with an invalid held item
  • Adding feeding mount sounds to BP and correcting the buffalo mouth socket in data table
  • Mounts and Juveniles will now receive a health regeneration boost after eating from food troughs (similar to hand feeding)
  • Fixed typo in Enzyme Geyser description, havest to harvest
  • Added footstep particles to mounts
  • Improved modifier stacking behaviour, longest modifier durations will now always take priority. TamingSpeed aura modifier is no longer visible to players
  • Fixed bug where mounts would start drowning if stood in water for too long
