Its goal is to provide an efficient way for players to find a server that suits their needs and also for servers owners to get more players on their servers. 60 PC Hotfix (15.11.2018) https://conan-exiles.com/blog/252/pc-hotfix-15112018/ https://conan-exiles.com/blog/252/pc-hotfix-15112018/ Thu, 15 Nov 2018 14:39 CET
We're rolling out a quick hotfix for the PC to take care of some issues that popped up after the post-Halloween patch. Please not that this patch contains no updates to the Purge system. That is planned to come out in a future patch.

The dev kit will release at the same time as this patch so mod creators can update their mods right away.

Changelog

  • Fixed an issue with thrall recipes not being visible when the user reenters any crafting station
  • Fixed an issue that prevented the user from scrolling up and down within any crafting station when using a controller
  • Fixed a Quick Loot functionality issue for loot bags, where loot bags weren’t quick loot-able, even by their owner

Weekly Community Newsletter: Quick Status Update https://conan-exiles.com/blog/251/weekly-community-newsletteraquick-status-update/ https://conan-exiles.com/blog/251/weekly-community-newsletteraquick-status-update/ Wed, 14 Nov 2018 17:03 CET
We’ll be recapping the Halloween event, talking about some bug fixes, and tell you how you can help us decide what to work on next.

Here goes!

Public Bug Tracker
In our ongoing efforts to keep the community informed about issues we’re working on, we’ve set up a public Trello board[trello.com]. This will list and track critical issues that are brought up by the community. The board will list issues for all platforms and if there’s no mention of a specific issue it means it’s happening on all platforms. If you want to read the full primer about the Trello board can find it on our forums[forums.funcom.com].

We’re trying to avoid letting the board get too flooded with bugs and issues, so you won’t see everything that’s currently under active development. If a specific bug is not on the list it might still be on our radar, but it hasn’t come up as frequently in community discussions compared to the others.

As you can see, we have internal fixed for several community critical bugs already, like Starmetal Shells not cracking properly and players getting trapped inside rhino meshes. Please remember to upvote bugs you think we should be tackling next.

We hope this Trello board will help keep you updated on the goings on at the studio and the status of community reported issues.

Night of Lost Souls
Our first ever Halloween event in Conan Exiles didn’t exactly go as planned. We went into it with the understanding that it wouldn’t necessarily be for everyone, but we hoped that players would still be able to find something to enjoy in the week-long event. Unfortunately, there were several issues that affected players in different ways and made the game hard to enjoy.

Certain things weren’t working as intended, the muted color palette and dark light made things difficult to see, and some players also reported eyestrain and headaches due to the blue and purple lighting. Un-patching the Halloween content also took longer than we would have liked, especially on consoles, and we would like to once again acknowledge and apologize for the frustrations this has caused.

We've gotten a lot of feedback from the community during and after the event, both positive and negative, and we’re taking valuable lessons away from how we implemented and executed this event. Things will be different if we do other events in the future. All three platforms have now been patched and we will continue to our regularly scheduled patches and hotfixes.

Friday Community Streams
The bi-weekly Friday streams are still going strong. If you missed the previous one you can find it, as always, on our YouTube channel or just watch the video below. We enlisted the help from master Conan Exiles architect Sven P to give us his best tips and tricks for building epic structures in Conan Exiles.

That's it for this week!

Sincerely,

Post-Halloween Patch (07.11.2018) https://conan-exiles.com/blog/250/post-halloween-patch-07112018/ https://conan-exiles.com/blog/250/post-halloween-patch-07112018/ Wed, 07 Nov 2018 16:20 CET
We have released a new patch for the PC version of Conan Exiles and removed the Halloween content from the game. We know the Night of Lost Souls event hasn’t been everyone’s cup of tea and we’re taking several lessons away from the feedback we’ve gotten this past week.

If you haven’t been participating in the discussions on our forums or on social media, and would like to give us your opinion on the event, please fill out this quick survey with your feedback:

Conan Exiles Halloween Event Survey[goo.gl]

Thank you to everyone for voicing your opinions and for offering tips on future events. We take it all to heart.

The dev kit will not be available at the release of this patch, but we’re working on getting it released. Shouldn’t take more than a day or two and mods shouldn’t be super incompatible without it.

This patch contains a number of updates to the Event Log so it will log more information related to pets, thralls and items. We’ve also fixed several bugs related to player corpses and we believe we’ve also managed to fix the well bug.

Highlights:
  • Event Log changes (see below for more details)
  • Halloween event has ended. The Potion of Lost Souls and any resources harvested during the event will remain in player inventory until consumed or decayed.
  • Wells should now be re-filling as intended
  • Fixed an issue where having several of buff/debuff icons on screen would cause a lot of lag

Patch Notes:
Exploit Fixes
  • Fixed an exploit where players could manipulate and duplicate thrall inventories
Event Log changes
  • Dismantled placeables will now show up as intended in the Event Log
  • Items dropping from destroyed placeables will now be listed in the Event Log when they’ve decayed
  • Update to the “Days Passed” slider in the Event Log to be more inconsistent
  • Event log entries can now stack and be displayed in one row instead of multiple.
  • Database maintenance: Remove Event Log entries older than 3 weeks
  • Companion names should now be displayed properly in the Event Log when they are hungry, starving or returning home
  • Made companion cause of death more consistent in the Event Log (Please note: The Event Log does not support custom companion names):
  • – Player and Clan name will be displayed when a follower is killed by another player
  • – NPC name will be displayed when a follower is killed by an NPC
  • – Starvation/fall damage/noxious damage will be displayed when a follower dies by these
  • The Event Log should now display item names as intended
  • Dragging an item from a Crafting Station and dropping it on a stack of said items in the inventory should now create an entry in the Event Log
Bug Fixes
  • Wells should now be re-filling as intended
  • Fixed a bug where traps could be returned to player inventory after exploding
  • Fixed a bug where corpses would disappear if a player died underwater.
  • Fixed an issue where an Avatar’s timer wouldn’t update correct on Dedicated Servers
  • Fixed a bug where accessing a vault would cause lag and hitching
  • Fixed a bug that allowed players to loot XX_Unarmed items from Thralls
  • Fixed a bug where unconscious NPCs would disappear if they fall or slide away from a space where they were released from their bindings (like a cliff)
  • Fixed an issue where having several of buff/debuff icons on screen would cause a lot of lag
  • The Degenerate should no longer spawn two corpses when killed
  • Removed guards on letting following companions teleport to you. Pets should now follow you more reliably into your compounds
  • Fixed a bug where attempting to move a pet or thrall would have them turn invisible if the player moved too far away from their original placement.
  • Fix a visual bug causing the blood spatter background of certain Feat filter icons to disappear
  • Fixed a possible leak in SQLite DB handling due to missing ‘virtual’ keyword on ~QueryResultBase
  • Explosive Arrows should no longer do damage to buildings on PvE servers.
Environment Changes
  • Removed the ability to reach a unplayable area in the Black Keep
  • Fixed a collision issues with the barriers in the Midnight Grove
  • Fixed an issue where the curse wall spline had many points that had inverted rotation, causing issues with not being able to build in random places. Also removed a duplicate of the curse wall spline that existed right on top of the original one.
  • Removed the ability to reach a unplayable area in Bin-Yakin’s Seal cave ceiling
Quality of Life Changes
  • Added a “Clear” button to the Server Browser, to more easily remove entries in Server Name and Maximum Ping filters
  • The Crafting Station UI will now display the name of the crafting station instead of “Crafting Station”
  • Increased the number of corpses a player could generate from 3 to 10. This should improve corpses disappearing upon player death
Localization Changes
  • Various localization fixes on DLC items

Halloween Hotfix (1.11.2018) https://conan-exiles.com/blog/249/halloween-hotfix-1112018/ https://conan-exiles.com/blog/249/halloween-hotfix-1112018/ Thu, 01 Nov 2018 14:58 CET
Today, we're rolling out a hotfix to take care of the most reported issues with the Halloween update released yesterday. We want to thank our community for reporting these issues to us and for staying patient and positive as we fixed them.

In this hotfix we're tweaking the game so it will be easier for players to see in the eternal twilight, while also balancing the loot drops from the Halloween meteors. The T2 doors are also getting fixed.

If it's still too dark for you you can also tweak the following server settings (in game or in an .ini file) to the following values. This will make it less dark:
  • DayCycleSpeedScale=9.000000
  • DayTimeSpeedScale=0.10000
  • NightTimeSpeedScale=10.000000
  • DawnDuskSpeedScale=5.000000
If you do not wish to participate in the Halloween event, there will be a build available on our Testlive[forums.funcom.com] branch without the Halloween content, but otherwise identical to the current live version.

If you switch branches and play single-player, you might want to **take a backup copy of your game.db file** to avoid potentially losing your save data.

Server admins might also want to back up their server's game.db file for people to be able to continue with their characters on your server, just in case.

How to find and copy your game.db
  • Open Steam and go to your library
  • Right click on Conan Exiles and choose Properties
  • Find and select the tab marked "Local Files" and click the "Browse Local Files" button. A Windows Explorer folder should now pop up
  • Go to ConanSandbox --> Saved to find your game.db file
  • Make a copy of it in an easily accessible place on your computer
  • Once you've patched to the Testlive branch, simply drop the game.db file you copied before into the Saved folder, replacing what's already there, and you can continue playing as you normally would

Changelog
  • Fixed T2 doors so you cannot walk through them
  • Removed Star Metal Picks, Skeleton Keys and other types of über loot from meteors
  • Meteor fragments that have been harvested or disappeared won't leave a particle trail behind
  • Changed speed of day on official servers so it will not get as dark during the Halloween event
  • Added auto exposure to compensate for the darkness and make things a bit brighter

An equivalent patch is also being made for consoles, but we're looking into fixing the spammy meteors first.]]>
Halloween Update (31.10.2018) https://conan-exiles.com/blog/248/halloween-update-31102018/ https://conan-exiles.com/blog/248/halloween-update-31102018/ Wed, 31 Oct 2018 12:45 CET

Today we are kicking off our Halloween event, which will run throughout the game during the next week. Welcome, exiles, to the Night of Lost Souls!

The sky will darken as perpetual dusk falls upon the landscape, casting it in black shadows and blue light, tearing at the boundaries which separate the world of the living from the realms of the dead. The clouds will part. A new face will appear upon the moon’s surface. It is the face of death, keeping watch over whatever might stir on the ground below.

During the Night of Lost Souls, stones will fall from the sky in multitudes, striking the earth in a flurry of colored smoke and debris. Adventurous exiles can break open these stones with whatever tool they have available. Inside, they will find a plethora of crafting ingredients, both rare and common, doled out at random by the spirits lingering inside the stones, anything from Plant Fiber and Meat to Explosive Glands, Arrows and Steelfire. It all depends on the spirit’s goodwill.

Inside the fallen stones you will also discover the Potion of Lost Souls, a special brew only available on this hallowed night. Imbibing the Potion will grant you certain benefits at random. Drink one and see what happens, but don’t drink too many or your body will suffer the consequences. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

After a week, the Night of Lost Souls will pass and the sun will once again rise on the Exiled Lands. The restless spirits will be calm, yet their gifts will remain with those who received them.

Highlights

  • The Conan Exiles Halloween Event is now live and will run until the 6th of November
  • Added new music, sound effects, Main Menu graphics and changed the lighting to make things more spooky
  • Torches now burn with a purple light
  • The moon's face is now different
  • Meteors will fall from the skies, containing different kinds of loot and goodies
  • The Potion of Lost Souls can be harvested from meteors. Imbibing them will grant you a number of buffs and effects

Devkit

The devkit will be made available shortly after this patch goes live, no later than an hour after patch time.
