    It was a hotfix that apparently removed a bunch of stuff if it wasn't on foundations. Mal and I lost a bunch of stuff as well. Joys of early access.

    I can't actually place shrines right now. Not sure why.

    I think I'm at the point where single player is supposed to stop. Everything take a huge amount of time to build, 200 iron reinforcements for a wheel of pain will take something like five hours. Steel also takes a very long time to cook. I guess I can play with the sliders...

  • KarozKaroz Seek Strength. The rest will follow. Registered User regular
    Yeah, singleplayer can easily go full god mode since the game is set with clans in mind and letting things "cook" over time.

    As for the shrines, it is a known bug in singleplayer they're trying to fix.

    Argh, after a crash my game just loads endlessly. Is there any way to pull my character and save info out? Losing that would be a huge fucking bummer.

    Edit: I fixed it because I'm great. Did some save game moopling, boobled a foofler and then validated game cache

    Is there a way to destroy shaleback nests? There's one right in the way of our base.

  • LucascraftLucascraft Registered User regular
    Another question to go along with my one above: Is there a trick to placing animal head trophies? I crafted a Gazelle Head Trophy, and I can't place it anywhere. no walls, not on the ceiling or floor, not on the grass outside. Nowhere. It isn't letting me place that item anywhere at all.

    There aren't shalebacks in the nest. The nest is empty, and due to it's ultra close proximity to my base the eggs have stopped spawning in it. But I want it gone. Haven't figured out a way to remove it yet.

    Pick and Hatchet neither one hit it at all. They just don't make contact when you swing at it. Sword makes contact but doesn't seem to do any damage to it, but the sword's own durability goes down. Don't have anything more powerful yet. I'm only level 16.

    Hmm - can you build over it ? Maybe just cover it up with a floor, and treat the next level up as your 'ground' floor ?

    Guy on the server I play on has been knocking out useful workshop items, the first one being better bark gathering and bark byproduct from crafting shaped wood. Check those out, they both work really well and make the game quite a bit less annoying in that way.

  • TubeTube Administrator, ClubPA admin
    Bark is the only thing that I just spawn into the game now.

    Oh, also ichor because I wanted a throne and didn't want to spend six hours grinding spiders for it.

    Oh nice. Found a blog post with some other details about production and upcoming content.

    Link: https://blog.conanexiles.com/en/look-things-come/


    The Highlights:
    • The Purge - NPC raiding parties that will spawn and sweep across the map. (PVE Content!)
    • Mount Taming - will work similarly to thrall taking. Capture a mountable creature, bring it back to base, and put it in a taming pen to break its spirit and turn it into a rideable mount
    • Armor Dyes - we already discussed this one above
    • Siege Weapons - Trebuchets coming to help with PVP base raiding. Also mentioned in the article - Avatar Defenses
    • Highlands Biome - Wooded and snowy mountains. Different climate than the desert of the current map
    • Temperature System - a new survival element that you will need to manage in the different biomes (hot or cold weather gear)
    • New Religions and gods for the new Highlands area, and new crafting items to go along with this area too
    • Sorcery System - allows players to weaken their physical body in exchange for necromancy and corruption powers

    And some images. Spoilered for size.

    Alright folks, I'm looking for some temple construction ideas.

    I'm playing this game with two friends (three of us total). We each picked a different deity, so we're going to have 3 temples in our base.

    I've got Set, and I think my idea is going to build some sort of columned parthenon style temple and put my altar inside of that.

    For my friend with Mitra, I want to see if I can build some sort of a pyramid shaped temple, with triangle sloped walls and stairs running up the middle, with the alter at the top. Is this possible? Do they give us the pieces to make a pyramid?


    I'm a bit stumped on Yog. I honestly do not have a good idea in the slightest for how to build a good temple for it.

    They've slowed down a fair bit. The shrine bug has been there a while.

  • LucascraftLucascraft Registered User regular
    I was having a weird issue yesterday in which I was unable to place any non-structure items in my house.

    I just built myself a private house, but the game wasn't allowing me to place wall torches on the walls, I couldn't place tables on the ground, I could not place a rug, and any other "RP items" I tried to put down would not place. I was not getting any errors. They simply wouldn't place.

    Note that I had no difficulty placing those types of items in the workshop in the same play session on the same day. I have no idea why it wasn't allowing me to decorate my house. It was the weirdest thing.

    Are you guys still going into my server? I have been busy with work, so haven't been on as much. The 1 month is up tomorrow and I am happy to foot the bill for another month. Though the usage graph shows that not many people are active on there. So if there's little to no activity in this next 30 days I may let it lapse. I've been logging in to update the server once a day, but @Karoz is faster at it than I am hahaha

    EDIT: Changing CPU Priority to "Normal" saves me $5 USD, so i'll just do that. Since we never come close to even 50% of our current CPU it makes little difference for us. Costs were not high to begin with.

    Edit: Guess I should post the full notes for those who can't open the link :redface:
    Before we get to the changelog we have an announcement to make:

    Announcing the Exploit Hunters!

    We’re still in the early days of our Early Access adventure and there is a lot work left to be done before final release of Conan Exiles in Q1 2018. The feedback we receive from you, the community, is invaluable to us in making sure we improve gameplay, squish bugs, and solve issues ahead of that final release.

    One of the most important things we can do to make sure Conan Exiles provides a fair and balanced playing field is making sure we eliminate exploits as early as possible.

    To help us with that we will soon be introducing the Exploit Hunters program. Here we will be rewarding players who provide us with information about the most serious exploits. With your help, we will be better equipped to handle potential future exploits which can destabilize servers and avoid the need for server wipes after serious cheating by catching them early.

    We will be providing more information and details on the Exploit Hunters program next week.


    Server Wipes
    We are wiping all buildings on official non-blitz servers due to recent exploits (private servers are unaffected by this)
    We are wiping all inventories (player backpack, containers etc) due to recent exploits (private servers unaffected by this)
    We are keeping player character levels (but you get a free re-spec) due to feat changes discussed in TLDR below. Please give us feedback on these changes.
    Server admins on private servers may perform a building and inventory wipe which keeps character levels by using the ServerCleanup.bat file in the gamedb folder to clean the current game database

    Changelog:

    TL;DR (Patch Highlights)
    NEW FEATURE: Ruins (decay) system! Cleans up old buildings over time. It is disabled by default on private servers and enabled by default on Official servers

    EXPLOIT FIX: Thralls that have started playing death animations can no longer be picked up and reused

    Game install now grouped into .pak archives. 1st time loading speed from main menu into game should be improved by a factor of 3x
    Game database is now backed up before upgrading the database as part of patching

    Server Settings
    Added a serversetting to modify how quickly thralls get converted (thrall crafting time multiplier)
    Added a serversetting so all containers can be interacted with irrespective of ownership (containers ignore all ownership)
    Added serversetting to modify NPC health also affects Thralls (NPC damage taken multiplier)
    Added serversetting to modify the rate at which machines consume fuel (fuel burn time multiplier)
    Added serversetting PlayerDamageTakenMultiplier

    Unconverted thralls can no longer be put in the hotbar
    Improved usability of the "exit to main menu" button

    Replaced the arrow on placeables like chairs and chests with a new visual arrow
    Keybindings now have a "clear" button
    Players no longer appear to be wearing armor after being looted while offline
    When you have a bound thrall, other NPCs no longer show up with the same name as the thrall
    Large NPCs now push the player away when rotating
    Clan members should no longer have their armor damaged if FriendlyFireDamageMultiplier is set to 0.0
    Player no longer becomes stuck if sitting in a throne before/during server restart

    Cleaned up and aligned the settings GUI
    Thralls are now properly animated when working at crafting stations
    Name tags stay longer onscreen and have become easier to read

    Known issues
    We are aware that some NPCs do not respawn correctly if players build too close. This will be fixed in the next patch.
    We are aware of a stamina usage exploit. The fix will be rolled out with the next patch
    Due to packaging the install files into .pak archives there is a 15-20 min wait once the client is downloaded before you can launch the game as the files unpack. This will only be the case for this patch.
    When removing buildings that have become abandoned, in rare cases it is not possible to build on the same spot. If you leave and rejoin the server it should be possible to build again.
    On local play if you use dyes on an equipped armor piece you must re-equip it before the color change becomes visible

    Out of curiosity, who are you using for your server hosing?

    I'm paying for a private server also, and I haven't attempted to update mine yet. My hosting is through "Survival Servers."
