Monday Dev Update #9


To secure and speed up the release pace, and minimize the occurrence of delays, you can support us on Patreon at

This past week was spent continuing the development work on the aspect of the 4x Mechanics pertaining to Region Cells. Quick reminder:

  • Divided into 9 main areas (3x3)

  • Each Area divided into 100 (10x10) Cells

  • Cells procedurally populated with Resource Nodes or Empty

  • Resource Cells and Empty Cells randomly occupied by Obstacles, Perils

  • Cells must be Cleared of Obstacles & Perils to be Claimed

Surveying & Incidents

Surveying & Surveying Incidents were the big item this week. The logic is simple:

  • Each Cell contains a few Landmarks (5 on average)

  • Those landmarks are Surveying Spots

  • You must Survey at least 2 Landmark out of 5 to be able to Claim the Cell

  • Surveying more than 2 Landmarks decreases the likelihood of the Cell getting Contested

  • While Surveying a Landmark, an Incident may occur

  • Incident type & gravity is determined by your current Notice value

  • The higher your Notice value the higher the risk level of the Incident

  • Currently, Incidents are, from lowest to highest risk:

    • Wildlife is caught at unawares

    • Tracks spawn. Follow them to an Event

    • A Patrol is caught at unawares. Avoid, Escape or Ambush it

    • An Ambush falls upon the Player: Escape or Overcome

    • A Deadly Ambush falls upon the Player: Escape or Overcome

  • At the moment, only one Incident per Cell per Day can be triggered

  • At the moment, all events are generic and placeholder. Later on, Arrays will provide variants of events

Next Up

  • Camp & Base Mechanics: Once Surveying is fully functional, we will move towards improving Camping mechanics as an extension of Hearth Mechanics and Landmark objects, well as beginning to implement Base-Building Mechanics.

Still Pending Fixes (low priority items at the moment)

  • After Boss Bot spawn, all bot spawns in subsequent waves are Boss Bots

  • Add and configure Interaction Goal, Defeat All goal and Protect Goal

  • Finish fixing timing Issues on the remaining Combat Attacks (inputs 3 4 9 and 10)

  • Fix Sprint's Stamina Cost & Passage of Time

  • Camera Tweaks & Small UI Fixes

  • Implement basic "Monsters" for Cloudedness Hazard

And as usual, you can:

Thank you very much!
