I somehow managed to get a #3 spot on the daily leaderboard - I have to just assume no one tries the dailies because I only made it as far as one tile out of the starting village before my evil twin hunted me down and exploded my brain but somehow that was still worth 12,000 points.

someone mind giving me a summary of what's in Ezra? I recoiled there; the Warden spawned hostile to the Farmer's guild and immediately went on a rampage. i see the Phyta merchant, tinker and the Penitent, was there anyone else significant that got smeared across the landscape?

The mayor and the graveyard are the two other main things on that screen, with the Earl one screen to the east also being rather important. That is besides the bananas.

Not 100% sure, but seemingly just faction rep water ritual stuff. Also the mayor is a tree, so you could have missed it pretty easily too.

was there a time when speedwagon didn't get trolled

Finally going to get into this after hemming and hawing on it for a thousand years of time. I'm really sad that the new UI isn't done yet, since it looks really good and way more readable than the current interface.

Any settings I should apply or QoL mods I should slot in before I start getting on with it?

Parts of the new UI are in, but you have to enable them

(honestly the way every element of the UI is selectable right now must be making bug reports total hell )

Go to Options, Overlay UI, Enable overlay user interface elements

Once that's done you can enable the new parts piecemeal, the two biggest are

Prerelease: Use prerelease stage screen and Show overlay status bar (sets up the new overall top/bottom hud view)
Show overlay message log (uses the new ui style message log - there's another setting you need to change to disable the baseline message log but I can't remember where it is, poke around)

The new inventory UI element is at least partially functional but I didn't use it much, trade wasn't working, and nearby objects worked very briefly then vanished

There's also 'Show tooltips instead of console 'look' text when you right-click' which replaces the look popup with an overlay style one. This uh, worked for me until it didn't (it's stuck offscreen and I can't reposition it).

It's a bit of a faff, but once it's configured you'll have something that looks like this:



The UI is responsive to res changes, I'm normally running at 1440p and it fills the bottom ability bar with more info, I can generally see cooldowns on all my combat skills with room left over, as well as more info up top.

New inv screen as it stands now:



The stage screen and message log have been fine for me, and I'm using them happily, the other stuff is either more hit or miss or seemingly buggy, I expect they'll gradually fix and implement bits of it as they continue the march to release.

Mod wise there's a variety of things, but I was keeping them disabled for bug reporting purposes - I did really like QudUX though, it adds a few things I really wish were baseline (visitation status of locations in the log, find village quest givers for non-Joppa starts, and a few other minor bits and bobs): https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfi.../?id=1804499742

Sidebar: if anyone figures out how to disable this drat button, let me know


I play with kb so I'm constantly moving the cursor over to it and out of any panel I'm interacting with in the middle of the screen, drives me completely crazy

Okay, I was just exploring Bethsaida Susa when everything I had equipped silently disappeared. Does anyone know what could have caused it? Looking over the logs I don't see anything at all, I was fighting one cragmensch boulderer with my weapons, I went down the stairs, and then the next guy I attack I'm using my fists. No mention at all of anything disappearing, no acid in the area, nothing.

Maybe a Pulsed Field Magnet? That's about all I could think of, but you should have received a message (I think).

Yeah, I ran into one of those in a previous run and it gave me a message when it activated (and didn't just steal everything I had equipped either).

I ended up alt-f4ing and reloading the last save, and it didn't happen again, so I guess it was a glitch?

I had this same thing happen to me in my latest run on the beta branch. I don't remember where I was, but I'd reached the stage where most fights were just clearing out trash, and during one fight I noticed everything was dying really slowly and then I realized I was hitting with my fists. I was also Clairvoyancy 10-ing every zone on entering it and didn't see any pulsed field magnets or see the magnet visual effect. I later found all my equipped stuff on the stairs, so my assumption was that there's some kind of "unequip and drop everything" key I hit by accident.

I recently had a fun time with field magnets and rocket turrets. RIP all my metallic items.

I soon forgot about it as I opened a door to be greeted by a freeze ray turret and its two eigenturret buddies. All on a power grid. They say my corpse is still getting chain-frozen to this day...

In my experience it's always some piece of poo poo magnet. If it wasn't a magnet this ONE TIME, then it was a bug, which kind of says a lot, that an in-game feature is exactly as annoying and poorly-articulated as a bug would be. (NOTE: I still very much love this game, and please don't take this post as bitching about it in general; I just really really hate those awful magnets)

Yeah, I'm only posting about it because it seems like the same thing as what happened to the other guy. I could be misremembering, but also: 1) every equipped item I had was unequipped and on the floor and I'm pretty sure I was wearing some non-metal stuff; 2) nothing was missing from my inventory; 3) normally when a magnet yoinks my stuff it lands up against the magnet or whatever wall is between me and the magnet, but it was all on the stair tile I was fighting on, which was surrounded by open area; and 4) I'm also pretty sure I cleared the zone without killing any magnets, so if there was one something else must have gotten it first and those things are pretty beefy.

My latest Esper run ended at lvl 20 in Bethesda Susa. I was surrounded by jerks who drop acid puddles everywhere, and hubris got me killed. Itís always hubris.

I didnít have a lot of fun mutations, except for Burgeoning. I killed Haggabah by filling the arena with deadly plants. Burgeoning is way more powerful than it seems at first.

Acid spreaders are loving incredibly deadly in this game. Not because they do a massive amount of up-front damage (though some can hit quite hard), but because they can significantly accelerate your rate of attrition, and letting attrition snowball beyond your ability to mitigate is usually what kills you in the late-game (assuming you don't instantly eat poo poo to neutron flux or a critical Rhinox charge or something).

And yeah Burgeoning is really good, because it lets you do that exact thing: with a couple of keystrokes, it reduces your own attrition and increase your opponent's. It generally won't kill threatening enemies directly, but it does pile a poo poo-ton of distractions, expendable targets, bleeding, spitting plant potshots, potential entanglement, potential rusting, and other annoyances on your target, and that poo poo adds up really quickly in an all-out bossfight. The sheer number of chaff minions alone makes it useful - just dropping Burgeoning between you and Jotun can often give you a lot more time to gently caress around before he charges you and cuts off your everything.

I just reached the end of the current content. The final area is extremely cool and made for a really great finale followed by an incredibly anticlimactic finish - after being reborn in a new body I went to pick up my stuff, and after I hit take all I instantly died because a goatfolk thrower spawned offscreen, wandered in, and killed me. I guess the moral is to just stay in computer valhalla when you get the chance.

On the bright side I got to use some polygel to duel wield an heirloom shield and give my true kin teleport with a 6 turn cooldown, that was fun.

Mmmhmm, yes. I suppose I will attend your ball. Someone must class up the affair, musn't he?


200.82

  • Examining artifacts now requires being able to move your extremities.
  • Eating snacks now requires being able to move your extremities.
  • The "HP warning threshold" option now defaults to on at 40%.
  • Various powered items, such as VISAGEs and ninefold boots, now correctly drain the last dram of their slotted liquid-fueled energy cells rather than leaving behind one unusable dram. If you find more items that do this, please report them on the public bug tracker: https://bitbucket.org/bbucklew/cave...tracker/issues.
  • NPCs attempting to use broken and rusted tonics no longer cause messages popups for the player. NPCs also attempt to use broken and rusted tonics less often.
  • Creatures are more willing to enter gas clouds, especially if they are immune to the gas.
  • Stunning Force can no longer be used on the world map.
  • Slumberlings are no longer Wakeful when they emerge from their natural hibernation.
  • Item naming opportunities triggered by leveling up now occur after the level up message.
  • Nullbeards are now permanently astrally tethered rather than immune to astral tethering or burdening.
  • Puffer fungi once again take damage from damaging gases at the rate inanimate objects do.
  • Frozen energy cells slotted into equipment no longer stay frozen forever.
  • Implanting a cybernetic implant now makes it permanently understood. If it was only understood due to a techscanning ability, losing that ability no longer converts it to an implanted "weird artifact".
  • Strip flies now respect phase and flight.
  • Psionic weapons can no longer be disassembled.
  • Items are now automatically weightless when equipped in a Floating Nearby slot.
  • Autogetting from adjacent squares is now controlled by an option: "Autopickup from adjacent squares". It defaults to off and only covers non-autoexplore movement.
  • You're now interrupted in the middle of autogetting multiple items when a hostile creature nears you (rather than being slammed by multiple enemy actions afterward).
  • Whether you immediately pick up items butchered from corpses is now determined by your autoget settings, not by whether you were autoexploring.
  • Pathfinding now avoids mines laid and bombs set by non-hostile creatures, to varying degrees by munition type.
  • Added a new option, "Prerelease Stage Scale", in the Overlay UI section.
  • Fixed a bug that broke mod tinkering when certain items had high-powered magnets applied to them.
  • Fixed a bug caused the Wakeful effect to not work sometimes.
  • Fixed a bug that disabled measures to prevent inappropriate objects from spawning on top of each other.
  • Fixed a bug that made Flexiweaved sometimes give positive DV.
  • Fixed some bugs that caused equipping certain items to fail to trigger their state changes, such as quest completion and DV updates for defensive stance.
  • Fixed a bug that caused save modifiers provided by cybernetic implants to not work.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the liquid-cooled item mod to be unapplyable in some cases where it should have been applyable.
  • Fixed a bug that destroyed cybernetics when another implant was implanted directly in its slot.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the value of cybernetics credit wedges to not show up in the short version of their display names.
  • Fixed a color pattern typo in Ereshkigal's interface.
  • Fixed a typo in a journal accomplishment.
  • Fixed a stray color markup tag in save modifier rules text.
  • Fixed some grammar bugs in the descriptions of hostile clones.
  • [modding] Specifications for DefaultBehavior attributes in Bodies.xml part elements are now correctly respected.
  • [modding] Fixed a bug that made less information available in some movement-related events than should have been.

201.8 - beta
  • Mechanical cherubim are now classified as robots.
  • Villages and chef ovens should no longer let you cook game-breaking meals.
  • The schematics choices for acquiring Tinker I, Tinker II, and Tinker III are now of the appropriate complexity for that tinker tier.
  • Village immigrants' pronouns are now more consistent.
  • Added a new option, "Prerelease Stage Scale", in the Overlay UI section.
  • Fixed a typo in waveform worm's description.
  • Fixed a bug with villager dialog color.
  • [modding] We added a new in-progress overlay UI for the Mod Manager.
  • [modding] Added a new "manifest.json" file to populate the extra fields shown in the Mod Manager. This file now subsumes config.json (you should convert any config.json files into manifest.json files). See https://cavesofqud.gamepedia.com/Modding:Manifest.json.
