0.42 EXP. UPDATE! NEW FUEL STILL, FISH FLOCKS, HIGH QUALITY SFX AND MORE!

Update 0.42.00 Splash

Hey everyone,

A new experimental build 0.42.00 has been released!

The new 0.42.00 update adds new Fish FlocksFuel StillFueling System and new high-quality Sound Effects!

The new Fuel Still uses Potatoes to distil a crude ethanol fuel which can be used to power Vehicles. If you use combustion propulsion for your Rafts or Gyro you will probably want to start growing Potato crops ready to be distilled to ensure you have enough fuel for travelling. This functionality goes hand-in-hand with the re-introduction of the new Fueling System. Like the good old days of Stranded Deep you will need to find and use Jerry cans to carry fuel and refill vehicles again.

This build also features new Fish Flocks!. The new flocks are part of our on-going work on the new fish system. The new flocks of small detail fish that can be found around shore-lines and reefs which help to add more life to the underwater environment in SD.

Thanks to Paul and Felix, our friends at Only Sound, we are completely overhauling the sound effects in Stranded Deep. See below for a complete list of implemented audio effects and be sure to let us know what you think. Please note that some sounds are missing and some are WIP.
There’s been some adjustments to the Gyrocopter as we begin finalizing our end-game plans. The Gyrocopter has been removed from the Story crafting tab and added as a craftable object in the renamed ‘Vehicles’ crafting category. You can obtain Gyrocopter parts from loot containers or mission rewards.

We’ve made some changes to the Oxygen and Drowning system. Now once a player is starved of oxygen the screen will fade black until death. The system no longer harshly relies on the player’s health.

Have fun!

Stay Alive!

    be sure to fix the sound of “ewww” and “yuck” when the guy guts a fish or animal. No self respecting hunter says that…ever.

  2. Clemdoog says:

    I echo the sentiments of Steve’s comments.
    Also, the collective noun for a group of fish is a school or a shoal…..not a flock….

  3. Clemdoog says:

    PS: love the game so far!

    Everything seems great!

  5. May I suggest being able to access your vitals and inventory whilst using a Raft or the Gyrocopter
