Question: Any knowledge why raid damage isnt possible during raid time?
(Private modded, EU)

Edit:
Seems it was related to any setting. Settings for players might have shown something different than the actual settings of that server. Everything fine now!

It could be a mode issue. The DevKit has not been released yet but we are working on it.
Unless we’ll get reports from official or non modded servers as well.

Yes! Love the optimization! All our buildings popped in so fast! Our large community market rendered in whole instead of popping in a few pieces at a time. It was awesome!

I was excited until I read that we have to copy existing architecture. :frowning: (Maybe we can have a free-form contest later? Even if there is no grand prize, I think it would be fun.)

It will be fun to see what others can do with duplicating existing architecture. We have some very creative members here. Maybe we’ll see a space station, or a small part of Pompeii (it can be built near the volcano)…maybe the lost city of Atlantis raising out of the water, a part of the terrain/building from Machu Picchu…so many ideas and no time to create.
The prize is awesome! A 40-slot server for 6 months.
The paintings will be a nice addition if players can keep the nudity out of it.

Oh for sure, we are planning on more building contests in the future :slight_smile:

I have an arguably dumb question about the contest: is the use of admin panel allowed? In other words, do we have to just be creative with builds or do we also have to grind for the mats?

Not a dumb question. If I were expected to build something in such a short time, I would have to use the admin panel.

Thanks! I’m excited to be here. Logged over 2k hours in-game but never managed to join the forums apparently. I rectified this today :slight_smile:

Not a dumb question at all and yes, you’re absolutely allowed to use admin powers :slight_smile:

Thanks for building optimization!

Pls. Return the craft bark as it was. Or return the level of extraction of bark from trees twice as much as it was. Why did you do it without reason?
If one person complains that he has too much bark, it does not mean that it is easy to get. This means that he simply does not spend it. Throw out easier than to get.

Thanks for clarifying, @Tascha. Also, since I normally post only to complain about something, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank the dev team for the building optimization. Stuff like that is never trivial to implement.

Sure thing. Constructive Feedback is necessary and very much appreciated so don’t worry. However, it’s also super nice to hear positive things. Especially since we can take that back to the team as well :slight_smile:

We will share more info when we are ready and have more info to share :slight_smile:

Very impressive patch! Well done :slight_smile: 10 times faster loading of bases, that’s a giant leap for this game. The next would be 70 man servers - you can do it :smiley:

Wow, thank you very much for the build optimization. Despite the lag spikes the game runs a lot more smoothly. :slight_smile:
