Thanks for checking in on the 0.11.26 update. We've moved the experimental branch to our default and stable Steam branch today. The last few weeks have been very hectic. The team has been wrapping up 0.11.26 and working on 0.12 +. Our interns have finished up their last blocks with us so sadly we're missing Marko, Rik and Ids the team is 5 strong once again. The guys were a massive help to us and we hope the favor was returned in the form of some good experience and knowledge shared :)
As mentioned above Ids finished up with us a couple weeks back so we'll not be doing a devlog for this update although we'll get those rolling again for the next update and all alpha updates when possible. We'll recap below on just some of the progress we've made in the 0.11 build. We'll quickly go over the past few weeks devblogs. If you'd like to help find issues please check against our full changelog, below is only a few of the fixes and features we've worked on.
Player and Zombie Inventory System Players will now drop backpacks, zombies will now drop small item loot, bullets/nails and rags to name a few. This has been requested and needed for some time, the system requires a good deal of testing please report any issues found.
Weapon Attachments Weapon attachments have been a want and staple since the concept videos, we've added the basics and base for attachments in 0.11. You'll find scopes, sights, suppressors (including oil filters) and flashlights. We'll expand on the system as we work through alpha builds and generate new attachment needs and ideas.
Small Game Trapping Crafted animal traps will be functioning shortly. Crafted traps can be placed anywhere in the world. Traps must be baited and will require the player or players to vacate trap areas. You'll not catch much if you're around making noise. We'll expand on traps in the future, adding variants and animations. The video below shows the player baiting and setting a small animal trap. When the player returns to a sprung trap they have the option to harvest animal meats. Currently set up are rats, cats, squirrels, opossums and raccoons.
Continued World Design Jos has been making fantastic progress on world design. Filling in the wilds will be something we focus on right through alpha, there are a lot of design ideas to be fleshed out. For the 0.11 update you'll notice far more starter camps along with the addition of a handful (soon to be more) bunkers.
