Craft a Strong Defense with the Hunting Dagger

Nobody said survival was easy — so stay safe out there with a Hunting Dagger! Craftable from a Crafting Bench, it’s most effective when enemies are distracted. There are four rarities to craft, each one stronger than the last:

Major Improvements, Adjustments, and Bug Fixes

Gameplay

  • You can fly faster in Sandbox worlds!
  • It’s easier to place builds close to each other.
  • Commute and converse… You can talk to Villagers while on a moving object, including a Dynamic Foundation!
  • Items will be returned to your inventory after you change recipes at a Crafting Bench.
  • Tree logs will remain between gameplay sessions.
  • Village Squares can no longer be placed on things not attached to the ground, since this was causing Village Squares to break.
  • Upgrading a Crafting Bench while another player is using it will work properly. (Waste your resources no more!)
  • Fixed an issue where using the “Deposit” or “Deposit Stack” options to put seeds in soil could make seeds go missing.
  • Fixed an issue where getting resources from Chests wouldn’t make recipes unlock.
  • Fixed an issue where the building limitation system would sometimes report that an area was too dense to build in, even though it wasn’t.
  • Fixed an issue where the cold status could stay on you if you were eliminated with the status.
  • Fixed an issue where wolves would sometimes run away from you for no reason.
  • Reduced the likelihood of the same Villager spawning twice.
  • The grass is always greener over there, and apparently, the storms are louder… A storm happening in the Grasslands will no longer scare Villagers in other biomes.


Stability and Performance

  • The frame rate when shadows are around is improved.
  • Improved stability so that crashes aren’t as likely.


Physics

  • Fixed an issue where Dynamic Foundations could disappear when traveling long distances at high speeds.
  • Fixed an issue where Toys could disappear after builds on a nearby Dynamic Foundation broke. 
  • Fixed an issue where some crumbled builds could be pushed by players.


UI

  • A “Take All” option has been added to Chests. This is a quick way to get all of a stored resource!
