I heard alpha 11 is being released tomorrow! is this true or just a rumor???
good question but i think there will be an unstable alpha11 release because tom has saied last thuesday that the want to release it but because of the weekend they fear issues so they want to wait for this week
@Wiese2007 oh ok! I don’t want to play on my last save if I wont be able to tomorow
Tom did mention they have been working on trying to make the game more friendly at keeping saves compatible, so maybe you’ll be lucky
i remember him mentioning in one of the streams that alpha 11 WILL break saves. he said something to do with the floor patterns specifically.
it will break 100percent the saves xD there are so much changes and new items … then i will have much todo xD
Darn, I was just getting a nice mature town going and planning some major earthworks, but MUST HAVE COOK!
Personally, I like my towns, and I get attached to each one, but unless I make something truly epic, I find that I am always more excited for the new features than I am for keeping the old towns.
I just keep rebuilding the same town over and over again in every new version since the first alpha we could make custom buildings, so I don’t really get attached. If they ever introduce a 7th crafter I’ll have to redesign my town, but until then I’ve never had any issues taking advantage of the new features with my existing design. When mining got added, I simply moved the town to a higher level of the terrain and started building it next to the mountains on two sides. When roads got added, I simply stopped using stockpiles as placeholder roads and built the real thing. As new classes were made, I already had crafter shops waiting for them in the layout. Now with crates in Alpha 11, I’ll simply put some crates in the crafter shops and houses instead of stockpiles.
I never end up having time to fully build the entire village, and usually bugs make my game unplayable before I can finish anyway, so each new Alpha just becomes a fun test to see how far I can get. Already in the unstable builds, I can tell that the performance improvements and current balance for getting new settlers will get me farther than I’ve ever gotten before. Perhaps Alpha 11 will be the first time I can post a screenshot of my complete working settlement.
