  2. Hello, that's how this works with the current iteration of shadows, yes, but we're open to changing that at some point. Thank you for the suggestion! 🙂
  3. Not sure if this has been mentioned but if you have a day/night cycle I would recommend having the sun separate from the camera. I just rotated around using Q and E, and the shadows cast on the floor followed as I did so.
  4. Because of the holidays, we’ve been a little silent… but we are now back in action (and larger than ever – more on that next time)! If you're out of the loop, you should know that Timberborn’s closed beta is underway and has received a few important updates. Here's a quick summary (of what we compiled here) We have new models for our flora – trees and berries. We're about to release new, optimized models for the crops as well. Labor house and labor flag have been replaced with four separate structures. Work continues on a slew of brand new buildings with fresh functionalities.
  5. Yeah, expanding the priority system in general – for example the way beavers decide which available job they should take – is a common request. We hear you on that. Thanks for the feedback!
  6. Just wanted to hop in and thank you for your input here and in other threads. We've been quite busy recently, but from now on, we should be more active on all our platforms, this forum included. 😊
  7. Perhaps the horrible image of their neighbors and relatives dying left and right was too fresh. They just needed a moment! Seriously though, thanks for the suggestion. 🙂
  8. Just a friendly reminder to all passerby: the closed beta is in full swing! If you want to help us create the world’s only beaver city-building game, be sure to follow instructions found in the first post. ☺️
  9. Patch notes 2020-07-16 To kick off the new incarnation of Timberborn Closed Beta, we have just released an updated build! Even though it focuses on quality of life, we are sure many of you will appreciate it. The good stuff The resource list has been revamped as per your suggestions. Resources are now grouped in collapsible panels at the top of the screen. Importantly, water is now in a separate category than food, the previous grouping was misleading for many of you. Thanks for the feedback! The status icons above hungry and thirsty beavers have been replaced with ones w
  10. Path notes 2020-07-16 (hotfix) The latest patch fixes a minor bug causing the new resource list to disappear in certain situations. All other changes from earlier today, including the new features are listed in the previous announcement.
  11. Patch notes 2020-07-23 A new build of Timberborn is now live on Steam! The new version introduces two experimental changes: New buildings Labor house and Labor flag have been replaced with four buildings: Builder's Hut, Builder Flag, Lumberjack Flag and Gatherer Flag. That change addresses a number of problems brought up by the community. Most importantly, you now have better control of how many beavers cut trees, gather berries and build new structures. It also allows the game to better communicate when there is a problem which stops your beavers from working, such as a missin
  12. Patch notes 2020-07-24 We have just released a patch which fixes a number of issues: Fixes a bug causing a crash when using the new Demolish tool. Fixes a bug causing a Forester to plant trees outside its walking range. Fixes a bug causing trees planted by a Forester to grow at the same time which resulted in FPS drops. Note that the fix only works with newly planted trees. Limits the distance that a Camera can move during performance drops, which makes problems such as the one above less irritating. Resolves a bug which resulted in the "Nothing" label in the
  13. Patch notes 2020-07-30 A minor update to Timberborn is now available for download. The update makes it easier to submit crash reports: When the game crashes, it generates a ZIP file with log files and a save game in DocumentsTimberbornError reports. You can send that report to us with a click of a button from the crash screen. Alternatively, you can send the ZIP file to us manually on Discord. Sometimes, you may still have to send us a bug report the old way: When the game does not start at all due to hardware issues. When the game does not crash but something
  14. Patch notes 2020-07-31 (hotfix) We have just released a hotfix patch: Fixes a bug introduced yesterday which caused Forester to stop planting trees after loading a saved game. Fixes a bug causing beavers to ignore some trees marked for cutting or demolishing.
  15. Patch notes 2020-08-04 A new update just went live addressing a number of issues related to audio: We have redesigned the underlying audio system. This should improve performance in certain situations as well as fix problems reported by many of you, such as distorted / crackling sound or no audio at all. Trees and bushes now emit a distinct sound when selected. Shafts also emit a sound on a close up. We have identified another bug causing beavers to ignore some trees marked for cutting or demolishing. This is hopefully now fixed.
  16. Patch notes 2020-08-07 (hotfix) We have just released a fix to a bug which caused the game to crash when selecting a dead beaver.
  17. Patch notes 2020-08-13 - The Shadow Update A fresh update to Timberborn Closed Beta is now live! We call it "The Shadow Update" because, you guessed it, it adds shadows to the game. Here's a complete list of changes: Things cast shadows We think they look gorgeous but you're the ones to judge, so send us your feedback! Best seen in High or Ultra quality. Redesigned flora Trees and bushes have a brand new style to better match the overall aesthetics of the game. Graphics performance The game's GPU performance is now considerably better. In p
  18. Patch notes 2020-08-27 (hotfix) We have released a small patch that fixes demolishing resources. Beavers will now successfully remove mature trees and bushes from the map, so your crews can go back to messing with Mother Nature.
  19. Here's a thing: we've been a bit too busy recently. While we published patch notes for the many updates that went live after July 9th to both Timberborn's Steam page and our official Discord, we failed to put them here. That's unfortunate, as we had quite a few significant changes implemented, including the addition of real shadows on August 13th. Let's just say The Shadow Update had a rather... drastic effect on how Timberborn looks. 🤩 Let us make up for it by posting all recent patch notes in this thread, one post at a time, starting with the most recent. And, moving forward, we'll do a

    Hi @Dave! We have redesigned the underlying audio system and just released it! I hope now you will be able to hear our beavers.
  22. Hi @mskiescher. We have looked into this and it appears that there is in fact a problem with the blinking icons but it does not affect the actual behavior of beavers - for the most part they are two separate things. So we will be addressing it as two issues: one with the blinking icons and another one with beavers ignoring some trees.
  23. I'm having an issue where Lumberjack/Gatherer Flags are routinely disconnecting from Logpiles/warehouses. Which in turn sets all trees on the map as unreachable. If I had to place a guess, I think the system is "checking" if there are warehouses/piles within range with each tick, which is causing considerable performance issues, because when they disconnect, it marks all trees as unreachable, cancelling beaver movement, and then has to reflag as reachable and ready for cutting when the storage spaces reconnect. This can happen 15+ times in a minutes. Which leads to a lot of confusion for
  24. @ooBartek No problem, glad you could reproduce it, just checked and it's fixed now indeed with the hotfix. Thanks!!
  25. I'm closing this thread for now - if the problem reoccurs, please open a new one.
