A17.2 is out!

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.

XP Multiplier

  • 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

For serverowners:

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
