We’ve just released Alpha 17.2 B27 with many fixes, changes and some great new game options.
Blood Moon Frequency
- This option allows the player to set a minimum amount of days for when the blood moon hordes appear. In the menu the player can disable them, have them daily, every 3 days, default weekly, once every two weeks and once every 30 days.
Blood Moon Range
- Here the player can change how many days can the actual blood moon day randomly deviate from the frequency setting. Setting this to 0 makes blood moons happen exactly each Nth day as specified in BloodMoonFrequency
- We added a property to the serverconfig.xml that allows server owners to change the maximum amount landclaims per player.
- Players can increase or decrease the overall experience gained. To suit the XP speed for the length of game they desire.
Adjustable Block Damages
- Players: Players can decrease or increase their damage dealt to blocks
- AI: The damage dealt to blocks by normal AI
- Blood Moon AI: The damage dealt to blocks exclusively by AI during blood moon horde time
Added: serverconfig property “UserDataFolder” to specify where all generated data on the server is stored, including generated RWG worlds
Added: new properties “XPMultiplier”, “BlockDamagePlayer”, “BlockDamageAI”, “BlockDamageAIBM”
Removed: old properties “BlockDurabilityModifier”, “ZombiesRun”
Changed: TerminalWindowEnabled default is set to true
