    Summary
    Hello, Engineers! In this week's update we are introducing the Palisade blocks - they come complete with spiked variants, battlements, and a gate. The palisade is less sturdy, but easier to build than stone castle walls and can serve as a protection in the early survival stages. They will add some nice visual flair for your castles and settlements - we can't wait to see your creations on the workshop!
    We are still seeing the occasional report about issues with the farming system - if you want to help, please send us saves and any information how to reproduce the farming problems through our bug report section of the forum: http://forums.keenswh.com/forums/bug-reports.415209/



    Features
    - Added Blocks: Palisade, Palisade Spikes, Sloped Palisade, Sloped Palisade With Spikes, Palisade Battlement, Palisade Gate
    - Updated Compass art

    Fixes
    - Fixed some multiblock naming issues.
    - Fixed a rare crash with harvesting wild plants.
    - Fixed grass density setting not loading correctly on game start.
    - Fixed seeding bags not decreasing seed count when seeding manually.

    Modding:
    - Fixed research definitions not loading correctly.
    - Added support for dummies on the subparts.

    Known issues:
    - There's a rare crash in building blocks, but we don't know why it is crashing. We've added some logging in hopes to track it down quickly.

    Update 0.4.4.92276:

    Fixes:

    - Fixed a crash when starting a new world after doing a fresh install on a fresh system.
    - Fixed an issue that would cause palisades to have invalid collision meshes.
    - Fixed a rare crash while searching for blocks on the g-screen.
    - Fixed the new palisade gates not having permission settings.
    - Fixed sloped railings falling apart when placed in survival.
    - Fixed a rotation issue with multiblocks.

    They said a while ago that farming was their minor update, and mechanical blocks their major

    That's a fine contribution and guys who build early middle ages settlements and wooden castles of that period on mottes will be much delighted.
    Things like that:

    This artificial heaped up hill with the main building on top is called a motte.

    10 seeds/bag is too low. The cost per return ratio is too high. Medieval life is hard but even they didn't have it this bad when it came to crops!

    On the other hand, their food didn't grow in an hour. It's hard to find the right balance and not end up in infinite food inflation.

    My mod fix had seeding by hand set to 15 uses, and by seeder 10. Because planting by hand will always be more efficient then if you use a machine.

    True.
    I don't have a problem with the seeds being a finite resource. I just think that having half your crops go towards planting the next generation seems pretty inefficient. Considering that the crop is used up when making a seedbag it's even more wasteful. Having cleaned out a number of pumpkins for Halloween over the years I can tell you there's way more than 10 seeds inside one! :woot:

    Yeah the railings have been broken for some time now.
    The locking catchblocks too, they fall apart if you place them "weird" (catch lock facing up on the bottom).

    Nice addition, it will certainly help to make settlements more realistic. ;)

    Please, please, PLEASE fix the dedicated server files. We are still suffering from the missing scenarios glitch and I can't run a server until this is fixed.
