BE AWARE THAT THE GAME IS CURRENTLY IN EARLY ACCESS, Early access is a marketing scheme which includes the involvement of a community while the game is still being DEVELOPED.

This page is for collection and tracking of updates for the Main Branch version of the game which is the stable release that people would play.

For the beta branch of the game Click Here, the beta branch is separate from the main branch and has its own versions and its change log is therefore also separate.

  • Electric system with generators (hydroelectric and solar ones), wires and items that require power.
  • Multi-Threading for complex simulations parts
  • Miniaturizor can now repair damaged items with left-clic (when selected)

Update: v0.06[edit | edit source]

5/5/2015

Developer Comment/s: "Here is a new minor update! It should be the last one before the first major update v0.1. So from today i'll fully work on new features & content! Follow me on Twitter or Tumblr to get daily news of the development progress!"

GENERAL:

  • During the night, spawn much less often monsters that can't reach the player... It should make the floating-base trick much less effective.
  • During the day, monsters don't become aggressive if they can't see the player (from 8 blocs), hear it shooting/digging (from 10 blocs) or be very close (2 blocks).
  • Add an UI icon for all passive items currently in use (Armor, Flashlight, Miniaturizor).
  • Add Spanish translation.

BUG FIXES:

  • Fix a crash that happened after 29 hours of play (I should have tested the game longer !!)
  • Fix a big performance issue when there are a lot of blocks with physics. Now 7 times faster.
  • Doesn't black-freeze anymore if localization file not found (the bug occured for Spanish players).
  • Fix the pause menu that didn't really pause the game

BALANCE:

  • Add 4 metal scraps at start to be able to build the AutoBuilder MK2 if we built another MK1 and 6 turrets.

MINOR CHANGES:

  • Corrections for some chinese & italian text
  • Change the version numbering (adding a build number for hotfix)
  • Heal shortcut now use the weakest potion of the item bar



Update: v0.058[edit | edit source]

28/4/2015

GENERAL:

  • Add localization in French, Chinese and Portuguese. You can choose your language in the steam properties of the game.
    • "And you are most welcome to help if you wish to translate to your own language! The languages files are located in the game local files, into DigOrDie_Data/StreamingAssets/localization/; On file per language, you send email me your translations here: [email protected] :o)"
  • There could be some issues with the texts in the various languages, do not hesitate to give me feedbacks on it.
  • Steamworks is now implemented to get the game language
  • We can now place dirt. But only above natural background, to fill a hole. And you cannot replace broken stone either. Otherwise all the physics challenges would become useless.

BUG FIXES:

  • Fix the cut sounds very annoying bug, and the fall sound stereo bug
  • Fix a big lag in the world generation (growing plants part), and ingame (but less visible) too .
  • Remove the fishes initial damage
  • Cannot place backwalls behind a block anymore

BALANCE:

  • Add one metals crap (it means one more turret and no more stuck with not enough metal left to build the AutoBuilder MK2... unless you build the MK1...)
  • Player is now slowed down when falling through platforms

MINOR CHANGES:

  • Fix a bug with AI messages displayed too early
  • [E] can be pressed from a bit further away
  • Air bar now displays over the character
  • Fix AI message display first-frame bug
  • Saving during the night quits menu so we can read the message
  • Music paused when game is minimized
  • Properly display the grass border over the dirt border



Update: v0.054[edit | edit source]

16/4/2015

Developer Comment/s: "And here is a new update! Please tell me if anything is broken, as I updated the project to Unity 5 there could be unexpected behaviors (I hope not!).

Now I've still a few minor modifs to work on, and then I should be able to start working on the first major update v0.1! "

GENERAL:

  • Project updated to Unity 5
  • 2 new musics for the night!

BUG FIXES:

  • Health bars for turrets now properly displayed, and turrets are healed by healing turrets.
  • Water surfaces doesn't disappear any more. At least i found and destroyed you, you nasty bug!
  • You cannot shoot through a block any more (well in rare cases you still can, but it's much better now!)
  • Fix bug when saving/loading during rocket take-off, or when you get hit during take-off
  • Do not bug as hell any more when spamming F9 keys. And F9 now works in the loading screen.
  • Turrets should better handle monsters when they are out of screen. I think they were taking advantage of you being away to take a nap.

BALANCE:

  • Repair turret: heal much slower, but with a greater range. It should not prevent enemies from destroying walls, but just help you repairing them.
  • Rocket-jump effect doesn't occur any more if you shoot up, to prevent unexpected and frustrating deaths.
  • The first day start a little earlier to give a little more time to prepare the first night.
  • Monsters stay in place longer when player goes away with a teleporter (they await your return!)

MINOR CHANGES:

  • AI ship help: a lot of typos have been fixed and sentences have been improved. Thanks again Mackenzie!
  • Sky goes dark when raining, and rain looks a bit more heavy.
  • Iron support recipe update (1 gives 1 instead of 2 gives 2, that had no sense).
  • The crack picture now shakes in the same time of its block
  • Double-clic on an item in the inventory (or crafting it) add it in the item bar and select it
  • Add the Autobuilder MK1 craft recipe (in itself)



Update: v0.050[edit | edit source]

29/3/2015

Developer Comment/s: "Hello, I don't yet have my new computer and enough time to work on the game (just relocated), but I took a little time to fix a very bad issue in regards to spawning, that had appeared on the last update. Some people had no or very few new monsters spawning, and for some others the rate of spawning were often far too low during the day... So I just uploaded to v0.050, tell me if it seems ok for you!"

FIX:

  • Fixed some of the spawning issues

14/3/2015

GENERAL:

FIX:

  • Fix the walls that were damaged after the load of a game in v0.047 (Walls max HP were previously increased but existing walls were not - had to load a new world for it to take effect).
