    Was Conan at PAX? There haven't been any updates in almost a week. Wondering if they showed anything off at the show.

    Didn't see them there.

    Hey if we need to migrate servers, I have a spare Dell blade in my basement, has 192 GB of RAM and two Xeons. I can set up a server there too, and it wouldn't cost anything.

    New patch out:
    Added option for locking containers (Containers owned by clan are lockable/unlockable for all members of that clan)
    A map marker will now point to where you died
    PvP death notifications should now appear when a player logs back in after being killed offline
    Arrows can now be picked up by players after they've hit something unless they break on impact
    When multiple players help kill a monster the XP is now distributed among everyone that contributed damage.
    Thrall specialty recipes should now be in the recipe slots, not the Thrall slot
    Fur can now be made into leather in a tannery
    The screen edge effect for temperature (de)buffs have been modified to be less intrusive
    Doors and gates will now close automatically after about 30 seconds
    The Cry-for-Help radius of humanoid NPCs have been reduced significantly. This will make it a bit easier to break camps and not have to face hordes of enemies all the time (although it will still happen if the player is not careful).
    Crafting times have been tweaked for most recipes in the game to about half. This change will be most notable for weapons and ammunition such as bolts and arrows. Some food items are also significantly affected
    Dragonpowder and Explosive Jars no longer have decay timers
    Added pop-up hint to Star Metal meteors when players try to harvest the outer shell with tools. Star Metal core can now be harvested with all tools, but steel tools give the most resources

    Full notes
    Hey! It's time to update. We've released a new patch for the PC version. Make sure you restart Steam to get the latest version of the game.

    This patch contains three weeks of changes and gameplay updates, chief among them a quick revamp of the temperature system.

    See below for the full change log:

    TL;DR
    Added option for locking containers (Containers owned by clan are lockable/unlockable for all members of that clan)
    A map marker will now point to where you died
    PvP death notifications should now appear when a player logs back in after being killed offline
    Arrows can now be picked up by players after they've hit something unless they break on impact
    When multiple players help kill a monster the XP is now distributed among everyone that contributed damage.

    Dragonpowder and Explosive Jars no longer have decay timers
    Added pop-up hint to Star Metal meteors when players try to harvest the outer shell with tools. Star Metal core can now be harvested with all tools, but steel tools give the most resources

    Temperature system changes
    The temperature system will now change more slowly - meaning that moving from one area to another will still apply the same temperatures but it takes longer to reach the target temperature
    Changed temperature system popups. Temperature system now progresses (from coldest to hottest); "Frostbite, Extremely Cold, Very Cold, Cold, Normal, Hot, Very Hot, Extremely Hot, Overheating"
    Drinking from the waterskin and the water-filled flasks will now give a cooling effect.
    Swimming reduces temperature by a small amount.
    It should now be possible to eat ice and get a cold buff
    Fixed damage on "Very Hot" buff, "Very Cold" buff and "Extremely Hot" and "Extremely Cold" buffs. The damage has been removed from the "Very" versions and slightly lowered for the "Extremely" versions
    The screen edge effect for temperature (de)buffs have been modified to be less intrusive
    Frost bite damage has been increased
    The following items now provide correct temperature protection:
    - Sandstorm Breathing Mask
    - Darfari Speaker Mask
    - Leather Workgloves
    - Climbing Gloves
    - Climbing Boots
    - Black Hand Vest
    - Black Hand Trousers
    - Relic Hunter Turban
    - Relic Hunter Shirt
    - Relic Hunter Gloves
    - Relic Hunter Trousers
    - Relic Hunter Boots
    All of the above now grant anti-heat bonuses, except for the leather workgloves that give a +2 temperature.
    Exile Heavy armor now increases temperature as follows:
    - Normal: +5
    - Exceptional: +8
    - Flawless: +13
    Exile Medium armor now increases temperature as follows:
    - Normal: +5
    - Exceptional: +8
    - Flawless: +13
    Reptile armor now decreases temperature by a total of -15

    I have been playing solo with the testlive and they are really doing a good job cleaning up a lot of the little things and I think the game is in a much better place than right after the north dropped. Still could use a lot more content but we will get there I guess.

  • LucascraftLucascraft Registered User regular
    Yeah, I kinda forgot about this game for a while.

    Really, I'm just waiting for the big thrall stuff. To me, thralls seem like the major thing that sets this game apart from its competition and right now what we have is a bare-bones version of it. If they can deliver on what they have spoken about for goals and aspirations for the thrall system, eventually it will be really kick ass. But first they need to improve AI, pathing, and combat because it's all tied together and none of it is great. It's passable, but not great.

    I haven't even played in about a month.

    Started my northern base, but their cold-weather T2/T3 alternate is way too grindy.

    Getting black ice is not fun.

  • BitTWistBitTWist Kitsap CountyRegistered User regular
    They fixed the black ice issue. You can harvest tons now. Watched the live stream today. Tons of new building content is coming next week, also dressing and arming thralls (archers, warriors, dancers only). some big UI changes. Repair system change, now repair kits. They are not sure if weather changes will be ready by next week.

    Yeah this is a big feature I've been waiting for.

    But I'm also a bit leery of doing that yet, until they can fix the mysteriously disappearing thralls. I had two dancers cease to exist, and I've had archers disappear from my walls in both my original desert base and also my new northern base. I mean, I guess there's a chance that someone PVP'd them, but I haven't noticed anyone else's archers disappearing or getting killed so I'm gonna assume nobody has messed with mine either. I think they're just bugging out and disappearing.

    Gauging interest in the server here. We ran out of funds 2 months ago, I have been floating it (again.) I noticed a steep fall of over those 2 months (Only 1 person logged in last month, and only once.) Bill is up today. 6 Days to pay it before it goes poof.

    Donations as before, can be sent to [email protected] via paypal. 1 Month server cost = $20 USD

    Is there a way to do a server backup and then let it die for like, another 3-6 months, and then do a server restoration at a later date with the backup?

    I haven't been playing it, and I don't really plan to play it anytime soon. But I've still got my eye on it for once it gets more feature complete.

    I feel the same way, every time a patch comes out I play around with the features, and you can tell there is a good foundation, but at this point I’d rather wait until release before putting hundred of hours in this thing.

    The new animal ai is really nice, though. I regularly run up on hyenas raiding shaleback nests or fighting ostriches, very cool.

  • LucascraftLucascraft Registered User regular
    I haven't been on yet to check out the new AI, but in my opinion - AI in general is the weakest part of this game. Human NPC AI is the worst. They float in the air, get stuck in tables, the floor, and other geometry. They run around in circles. They do all sorts of really buggy things.

    I also really want mounts. Crossing the map takes forever, especially when trying to make resource or thrall runs from the lower map to the upper map.

    They also need to add so many more items in general. The "roleplay" potential in this game is very high and the more outfits they can give, the more dancer options I get, the more I can customize my soldiers the better.

    They also need to add like 10 different dance animations and let players set their dancers to use a specific dance. I'm tired of my sexy belly dancers doing the Russian cossack dance.

    Conan Exiles - Community Manager (Nicole V)

    New Content!

    Weapon, tool, and armor modifications

    Introducing the modification system! You can now improve your weapons, tools, and armor with a host of modifications using kits. They can be used to improve certain aspects such as increasing damage on a sword, or improve harvesting on a tool!

    Weather System

    Only available in the north so far. The system allows for more dynamic changes in rain, snow, wind, and fog! Rain now puddles on the ground, but beware: if the weather grows severe enough, a thunderstorm might come.

    New Armor Sets

    This includes Aquilonian (medium) and Zamorian (cloth). Both include very good stats for their tier and will give attribute boosts once the new perk system is implemented.

    Improved Thrall Capture Tools

    This patch adds iron and steel truncheons for knocking out thralls, and higher tier bindings (rawhide, leather, and chain) for dragging thralls for longer distances.

    New Weapons

    New weapons include Acheronian weapons, two new axes, a new studded mace, and a corseque (pole weapon).



    New Building Pieces

    Ladders can now be built! Other pieces include inverted sloping walls, hatch frames, and hatches.

    New Tools

    Sickles have been added for harvesting fiber, and cleavers for harvesting meat.



    New Placeables

    New items include weapons racks, folded screens, papyrus scrolls, and more!

    I've heard reports of level 3 altars and vaults disappearing after this patch, so be wary. Funcom is supposedly looking into it.

    The game is getting much better. They have added a lot of small things that have been lacking for a long time. And all of those small things add up to a much improved gameplay experience.

    Ladders, sickles, and meat cleavers being major small additions that I've been looking for personally for a long time.


    My list of wanted/expected features is shrinking. Here's what I'm still looking forward to before I really jump back in and hit this game hard again.

    --Mounts
    --Sorcery
    --The Purge


    They also announced the PS4 release date, which is going to be simultaneous to the official PC and XBO launch. I'm excited for the PS4 version and I'm still fully intending to play there when it is available. And I will definitely want to get a PA clan going.

    The clan thing was "okay" on Elim's server but hopefully when full launch happens we can get a more stable online presence and help each other build, enthrall, and so forth and really build up a strong clan based on cooperation and teamwork.

    Has anyone run through the Dregs recently? I went through there with a buddy the other night, and it seems like they changed the balance in there - for the worse.

    Monsters we respawning extremely fast. In the past, if someone died or there was a wipe, we could usually get back through without needing to re-clear everything. But not anymore. Now it seems like rooms respawn in only about 10 minutes.

    The other major thing was that the end boss seemed to have its damage ramped way up. It killed us a few times, and after dealing with the frustration of respawns every time we had to come through we just gave up. The boss was basically two shotting us. My character is 36, and my friend's character is 27. We should have been well within the level range for that, and I've duo'd it in the past with FragileFox on Elim's server.

    I dunno. It ended up feeling like a colossal waste of time after wiping in there multiple times and then never being able to clear the boss because it's damage output was so ridiculously high.

    Thankfully it looks like there are mods to help tweak these things into line of not needing a raid group.

    Here is a mod to basically make boss monsters suitable for a single player.

    I do remember when Mal and I fought the abomination it was usually one of us tanking it with a shield until it did the lunge attack.

    This thread is pretty dead so I don't know if anyone else besides me is even still playing it.

    But for those of you still interested in this game, the devs posted an hour-long video on Youtube showcasing their new combat mechanics.



    I'll try to break down the bullet points version of it. It looks really neat and I'm definitely excited to see it go live.

    Overview
    • Combat mechanics are being completely overhauled. Each weapon will now have Combos associated with it
    • Each weapon will have a Normal combo and a Heavy combo
    • Weapons will be divided into various classes, where the class of the weapon will determine extra side effects associated with that weapon type and its combos
    • The stat point page is being overhauled and new passive perks are being added and players can select a perk at major level-up milestones in each stat. Characters will become much more specialized in specific playstyles based on their perk selections.
    • Passive health regeneration is completely going away. Players will be able to eat food, use bandages, or other consumables to restore health
    • Food is being overhauled, and different food and meals will provide various stat buffs in addition to providing health regen. The regen rate of the food will be determined by food quality.
    Weapons
    • Swords and other similar slashing weapons will be able to apply a crippling effect on combos
    • Maces are going to become the shieldbreaker weapon and their combos will be able to knock-aside or disregard a player in blocking stance
    • Axes are going to be considered a middle-of-the-road option and have some shared elements with swords, and some shared elements with maces.
    • Daggers are being overhauled to become dual wielded weapons, and dagger combos will stack up a bleed DoT effect, which increases in potency the more stacks that are applied. You also get a sweet new backflip move while wielding daggers that puts you way back out of harms way, much further than the standard evade button
    • Unarmed fighting is going to be given its own combos and will be much more effective in the future
    • A new "Kick" move is being added that will work while unarmed or while wielding any 2-handed weapon
    • Two handed swords are being added as a new weapon class. They will be crippling weapons like one hand swords, but swing slower and deliver much more damage
    • Two hand maces will be total shield smashers, and the heavy combo will allow you to lay out your opponent on the ground. Two hand maces also apply a Sunder Armor effect which stacks. Each stack of Sunder Armor reduces the overall effectiveness of armor. This will make Two handed maces essential for taking down heavily armored targets.
    • Javelins are being added as a new weapon class. You can fight with them as 1-handed weapons with a shield or other offhand, and they can also be thrown. You can carry stacks of Javelins (like ammo). Javelins will cripple a target if you hit them in the leg with a throw.
    • Bows are getting some new trick shot stuff with the Accuracy perk, and bows will be able to cripple with leg shots.
    • Crossbows are being completely removed from the game for the time being, with a promise that they will be added in later. It sounds like they don't really know what to do with crossbows in this new system, and since they reload slower, have slower animations, and all of that, they just decided to remove them from the game until a good niche solution can be found for them.

    Misc
    • War Paint is being added as a new crafting consumable, which will be crafted at the alchemy bench. War Paints act as buffs to stats, so there will be a War Paint of Vitality, War Paint of Strength, and so forth, where you will gain a few extra ranks in that stat as long as the War Paint is active on your character.
    • Since daggers are being reworked into dual wield weapons, they are adding a new tool called Skinning Knives which will have the same functionality as daggers currently do.
    • NPC's will be able to use the new combos, and the difficulty rating of the NPC (rank 1-4) will determine how aggressively they use the combos.
    • Archer NPCs will sometimes be equipped with a melee weapon and they will be able to switch to melee when you are within melee range of them.

    Awesome write up. Thanks for that!

  • MortiousMortious The Nightmare Begins Move to New ZealandRegistered User regular
    I've been thinking of starting it up again.

    Is it possible to host a local server on my machine that others can connect to?

    Move to New Zealand
    It’s not a very important country most of the time

    Big dev update today, detailing what launch will look like.

    I read through it. Happy about some thing, not so happy about others. I still play it all the time, just in single player.

    I was watching the live stream this morning, and they really didn't add anything new. Just clarified some things.

    I do wish they would add more thrall stuff to make my settlements feel more alive. (idle emotes, bed assignments with shift sleeping, patrols)

    Someone should also change the title of this thread as there is no longer a PA server.

    Thread creator's last activity is Feb 2017, so it has been a full year since he's even been online. Will need mod intervention to update thread title.

    Or maybe we can just limp along in this old thread until May when release happens and then I can put a new thread together. I'd like to get a whole "Newbie Section" anyway with tips for how to start.

    But might as well wait until closer to launch.

    Yeah, that's really what I want more of. A big part of what separates this game from others like ARK or Subnautica is the thrall system, and I really hope they make it shine, or at least have it be moddable.

  • LucascraftLucascraft Registered User regular
    I'm very disappointed to hear that mounts won't be in at launch.

    I was looking forward to increased movement speed over long distances. But more importantly than that, I want a beast of burden that I can take out with me on long mining runs to dump a ton of stone/iron/wood into the inventory of a mount. I also liked the idea of using mammoths and rhinos as mobile siege weapons.

    But maybe having waystones for teleportation will help speed up travel enough that it will reduce the need for mounts.

  • BitTWistBitTWist Kitsap CountyRegistered User regular
    I'm not totally sold on the teleport thing. Depends on how they integrate it into the lore. Though they did say in this mornings live stream there is lore justification for it.

    Still keeping an eye on this as it goes along, it's looking kind of alright. Combat was the main thing that looked janky as fuck to me so i'm glad that is/was getting a big revamp.

    Not sure there's enough for me to want to pick it up before it's finished though.

    It feels pretty good right now from a builder game perspective. I'm eagerly anticipating the combat overhaul, and I think that will really set this game apart from other games in the genre. But to me, it's already a very solid builder sandbox for allowing me to make castles, fortify them, and populate them with employees.
