Testlive Patch 2.4.4 (21.05.2021) - Isle of Siptah Launch patch

WORK IN PROGRESS BUILD AND DOCUMENT

This is a work in progress build and as such, neither of the changes and implementations found in it are final. Neither is the patchnotes document, which will be updated, corrected and completed over the Testlive period to better reflect the work in progress nature of this build.


Greetings, Exiles of the Testlive lands!

We’re releasing early on Testlive patch 2.4.4, which will be the Siptah launch patch scheduled for next week.
In it we’re including a thorough beauty pass for Isle of Siptah, in particular for the new areas introduced in 2.4 to have them all shiny and ready for the launch out of early access. This patch will have a shorter time in Testlive as it is not an update. We wanted to ensure over the weekend its stability ahead of its launch early next week.

If you give it a try, please let us know of any issues you may encounter!
Thank you once again for your continued support, and see you next week as we ship Isle of Siptah out of Early Access!
Stay safe!


IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING MODS

Please remember that updates can mess with your installed mods. We suggest taking a backup of your current database before updating to any new patch if you have mods installed. For the purposes of testing, we recommend not using any mods when playing on Testlive.

Separate TestLive Product on Steam

We heard your input regarding the inconvenience with having to switch back and forth between the main game and our TestLive servers. To make it easier for you and because we really value your testing and feedback, we added a separate product for the TestLive server on Steam.

If you own Conan Exiles on Steam, you should now see a separate Product called “Conan Exiles - Testlive Client” in your library which gives you the option to install an additional instance of the game specifically for the TestLive servers. Please be aware that this will prompt you for a full additional installation.

We are aware that not everyone wants install or has space for two full installations. For those of you who don’t want to play through the additional TestLive Client, you can still access the TestLive servers through our old method.

Really nice! :slight_smile:

But… no end-game for Siptah players?

I mean in EL you can collect all the artifacts to let you free from the “prison”.

  • Arrows should no longer pass through a knocked down enemy.

can u answer - only knocked down? or any staggered and knocked back targets?

any npc´s / instance for the skullcave ? or will it stay empty ?

So much ooey-gooey goodness in these TC patch notes!

Agreed, even though there are allot more to do and collect…Ah the hell with it all, I just want to fight SIPTAH!!! And explore the top of his tower…

:metal: :smiling_imp:

heh when Isle launched in EA I kinda expected the tower to be this final dungeon, where you fight/puzzle your way to the top where big bad boss resides and only after you defeat him… you can discover way to learn sorcery

Sorcery isn’t coming anytime soon. A more likely scenario is fighting your way to the top of the tower, culminating in a boss fight against Siptah himself; when he dies, a magical portal opens that takes you to freedom–in the Exiled Lands.

So it’s confirmed that there will not be full nudity back in 2.4 on PS4?
We have to wait the first hotfix right?

OMG can someone tell me what this is? I’m super curious!

water mashup

TeleportPlayer -8572.019531 127.833145 -4804.066895

while at it, can we have less opaque water please? new tints helped a little bit but that’s not the parameter that throws it off
ultra settings, Exiles Lands

This is something I would like to ask again. Whether or not it is indeed the cause of my current issues, can we please, PLEASE add an Admin Setting to toggle the new building restrictions on or off?

Let us keep our creative freedoms. Please let Singleplayers and Server Admins decide for themselves how they would like to play.

  • Children of Gullah should not drop skeleton keys, making some videos instantly obsolete. Sorry!

I think a better choice would be to bring their HP up to be more in-line with other skeleton-key dropping bosses, rather than take skeleton keys away from their drop table. No need to make these guys thoroughly irrelevant.

If anything is irrelevant this would be the keys since they drop nothing good nowadays. As for the mobs, with or without keys they are still pretty good source of thick hide and demon blood. Considering that there are entire areas populated by them, I don’t think it is a good idea to make them as though as a 3 skull. If you need to farm keys, there are plenty of bosses to kill but again, what for.

thrall SoFt cap number? And thrall cap Hard cap? Number Please.

What changed to server transfer please?

Did the last half of vaults not spawning not get a fix this pass? Having to go ghost and back to trigger the area to spawn is weird and can’t be done on official servers.
