    Learn to let go? Really, everyone else that bought the game really wants more game update info, silly jokes, and harangues by Trolland.

    The quickest and easiest way to avoid a blood moon horde is to just go down to your tunnel system and dig. I get that a lot of people don't want the danger taken away, but you can literally live underground and only come up every once in a while to tend to your farm.
    On a server, I blew open a huge hole in the ground so I could plant huge snow covered trees all around my dinner table in my underground lair in the middle of the desert. Before that, I placed a huge wall two blocks thick with three rows of spikes all around it, and it goes to bedrock. I can plant trees and food underground where my water reservoir keeps me eternally hydrated and nothing can ever get to me. Sit out horde night? Nah, we have pits we let them fall into surrounded by iron bars so we can shoot "fish in a barrel" style.

    Moral of the story? If you want to skip the horde you can and will. The jeep will not fundamentally change that.

    Thanks for the explaination. Now i'm really looking forward for the new update

    Easiest way is to mod it out of the gamestages.xml file. In fact it should be the ONLY way

    Yeah when I feel like skipping a blood moon night , I just go into my mining system and work down there all night...kind of cheesy and
    I have hopes THAT will get fixed in some way or another eventually...

    I don't know if there's a change in a17 to make that possible, or if that's something that happens on some servers due to how the server is set up from an OS point of view. But I know that in my rented server that I've had since a14, if I change an xml file, I usually have to restart the server from the control panel on the server host's web site. Also, when I change xml files on my local game, I think I have had to shut the game down completely and go back into it before I see the change.

    Easiest way to skip the bloodmoon:
    For server play, log out.
    For single-player game, F1 settime X 4 0
    Change the X to the current day plus 1. So to skip the first horde night change X to 8.

    But if you do these things you miss out on experiencing a key feature of the game and you also miss out on a boatload of XP. It's a risk for reward system. If you don't take the risk, you don't get the reward or experience the full game, and that is it's own punishment.

    I don't smell anything and I see more light so I'd say surface.

    LMB is just for testing. The setting will live in the new vehicle controls tab.

    Oh, which dev does that so I can pester them? =)

    ...I'm also asking for selfish reasons, as my own entities, despite having colliders matching the meshes, also clip through blocks above 2 high...

    Which might be part of the difficulties that caused behemoths to be postponed/killed?

    That's likely, yes. But I also legit don't like bears being to easy via the door/fence bug.
