The changelog is updated every time I add new items to the current in-development Beta. Check back/subscribe via email (located at bottom of page) to see progress updates.

Beta 1.9.2

Released August 31st, 2014.

Bugs

Fixed a bug where:

  • The offline/downloadable clients would not allow mods to be loaded (node-webkit issue).
  • Quality of tiles did not transfer between setting down and digging/gathering them back up.
  • Slime Gelatin would decay into Rotten Meat.
  • Magical “Essense” typo fix.
  • Attack and defense values would not be updated after an un-equip.
  • When attacking a creature, you will no longer also pick up items from under it in the same turn.

Improvements/Changes

  • Water routing ability (digging adjacent to water) and chances now depend on how much water you are trying to route and dig from. If the pool of water tiles is too low, it will not be able to spread naturally; however, above that, the chance for water to route is based on the amount of water tiles in the pool. The more water, the easier the water is to route.
  • There is now a 32 and 64 bit versus for the offline OS X version of Wayward (previously only 32-bit).
  • Fixed the tile/world perspectives on Forge and Anvil and Wooden Chest and a few other miscellaneous graphic edits.
  • Armor now has specific vulnerabilities and resistances and monsters now have damage types to be used in conjunction.
  • Attack and defense labels now have hover-over information which includes a more in-depth break down of damage types, resistances, vulnerabilities and skill bonuses for each.
  • Transmogrify, Repair, Reinforce, and the new “Preserve” now show up in each item menu to specifically perform item on item action instead of having to drop the item on the ground to perform the actions.

New

  • A new “Preserve” ability has been added to be used on extended the life of foods.
  • A few new items including a unique, rare weapon and a new resource (and tile).

Beta 1.9.1

Released July 13th, 2014.

Bugs

Fixed a bug where:

  • Multiple errors could be triggered when using a container that was in the first slot in your inventory.
  • A typo that caused some creatures not being able to spawn on shallow sea water.
  • Plant Roots was spelled “plant Roots”.
  • Fire decay rate status was not being calculated per type, so furnaces for example would always be raging to start and last for a long time. The message is now more accurate.
  • You could duplicate items by holding an item in your cursor and picking an item up.
  • Sounds would sometimes not play properly in the offline, downloadable version.

Improvements/Changes

  • Decode verbiage changed to make more sense with gather treasure changes.
  • Aberrant Living Mushrooms now drop/carve into Red Mushrooms instead of the normal white mushrooms.
  • Living Mushrooms no longer bleed.
  • Removed attack from actions as it caused issues with timing/turns and there’s no option to disable auto attack anyway, so it was confusing/unnecessary.
  • The Bull Boat no longer requires treasure, and no longer has a “win” state applied to it – it can now simply be used to travel to a new world.
  • A new, more advanced boat has been included to replace the old Bull Boat’s functionality.
  • Ammo and fire consumables (tinder, kindling, etc.) will now be checked throughout all containers in player’s inventory, not just those that are equipped.
  • Chickens now longer spawn by default, they have been added to a higher tier.
  • The container menu/window will now display the name of the container that is currently open.
  • Slowed down plant spreading chance by around 75%.
  • Speed up fire spreading chance by around 25%.
  • Blood removal now has a custom message and no longer loops as a second action.
  • Plants may now randomly, and rarely spontaneously grow (not just from spreading from another as previous).
  • Performance of the offline, downloadable version should be improved a bit.

New

  • Complete documentation and hint/help guide added. Caution: heavy spoilers! Let me know if you can see any improvements to be made on this.
  • Added unique corpses to aberrant creatures.
  • A few new items and item uses added.
  • Eggs have been added and can now hatch into chickens, or be laid by chickens.
  • Help and donation buttons added to the main menu.

Developer/Technical

  • spawnMonster now has an extra parameter for forcing aberrant status.

Beta 1.9

Released June 14th, 2014.

Beta 1.9 contains all the changes and fixes included in 1.8.1-1.8.6.

Bugs

Fixed a bug where:

  • De-spawning would stop to function properly after awhile in a game/session.
  • Using quick-slotted items with hotkeys would bypass sling/bow equip restrictions and cause containers not to work.
  • Quickslotted items would not restock if thrown from the item menu.
  • 0 durability items being blocked from crafting if they were just required (and not consumed).
  • Dying while rafting would cause the player to become stuck on respawn.
  • Invisible rotten meat would keep spawning in a player’s inventory if they had some meat with a 0 decay in the first spot of a container, in the first spot of their inventory. You can see how this one was hard to track down!
  • Filters would not work in Safari.
  • Items would disappear if you tried to use “Drop (All) In Opened Container” when not facing the chest.
  • Closing a container with the “X” would not actually close the container via game logic, possibly causing some container errors.
  • Fists and throwing items with no damage type would result in no vulnerabilities and resistances being applied.
  • Players could get different items back after they just placed a tile. For example, getting shale from a pile of gravel they just placed down.

Improvements/Changes

  • Randomized events will now happen more frequently.
  • Acceleration on movement slowed down on turning to produce more accurate facing movements.
  • Slowed down monster de-spawn a bit (although, it’s much faster than before due to a bug fix).
  • Items you cannot craft are displayed with a red border instead of a very low opacity.
  • If a container breaks from throwing, the items inside now scatter around the point of impact.
  • Decreased the durability on branches, bones, and wooden poles to promote crafting of higher tiered items for gathering/fighting.
  • You can now turn while moving with your mouse and holding down, instead of having to de-click, and then changing directions.
  • Increased vine whip durability.
  • “A Spear” is now “A Stone Spear”.
  • You now always have a chance at doing at least 1 damage to a creature.
  • Resists and vulnerabilities re-balanced across all creatures.
  • Fixed some grammar issues with combat messages.

New

  • A couple new survival food related items added.
  • Added a couple missing translation texts including recipe skill, equipment type, damage types, and dialog titles.
  • A pick-up option was added to the action menu for doors.
  • Inspecting an aberrant monster will now reveal it’s abnormal.
  • Combat messages will now reveal effectiveness of what you are using to damage a creature.
  • New fancy webkit-only scroll bars!

Developer/Technical

  • Item CSS is now generated dynamically instead of via CSS. This will improve modibility and changing of items on the fly.

Beta 1.8.6 (Weekly)

Released May 1st, 2014.

Bugs

Fixed a bug where:

  • Mobs would eventually stop de-spawning properly, causing too many monsters present on longer playthroughs.
  • A default english.js customization would fail, making translations not able to be loaded fully.

Improvements/Changes

  • Increased default durability for both of the slings.

New

  • There is now a “Resting” and “Sleeping” feature. If you were familiar before with Resting, basically, Sleeping is now that functionality. Resting is a bit different now in that you will now automatically stop resting when your Stamina is full. On top of this, Resting, unlike Sleeping cycles (length) are not dictated by time of day or if you are facing a fire, but still dependant on your Camping skill a bit. Resting will provide the same regenerative effects as Sleeping; however, your hunger and thirst will still increase as if you were normally taking turns, while sleeping gives a bonus decrease to this (as per usual).
  • You can now “Rest” from the Actions menu without any item; however, you will receive less regenerative effects resting directly on the ground.
  • Special randomized events now have the rare chance of occurring, these include:
    • Bare trees can become full again.
    • Trees can grow extra resources.
    • Monster death.
    • Monster health increase.
    • Monster health decrease.
    • Plant destroy.
    • Plant fertility increase.
    • Plant fertility decrease.
    • More of these events to come.

Beta 1.8.5 (Weekly)

Released April 18th, 2014.

Bugs

Fixed a bug where:

  • Item menus would hover off of the left side of the screen.
  • Items in an opened container would not update if decayed (and cause errors) until re-opened.
  • An opened container would not close if thrown.
  • Movement was being dictated by FPS which on some configurations (GPU/browser) was causing very fast movements.
  • Errors were produced when killing a monster from shot/thrown item.

Improvements/Changes

  • Slowed down plant spreading by about 50%.
  • Increased chance at getting hurt from not using a tool while gathering (and now picking up items without a tool via new Actions menu).
  • Throwing and shooting (slings/bows) now reduce stamina based on a Tactics skill check like attacking melee currently does.

New

  • New “Actions” menu (hotkey “q”) implemented. This will create a contextual menu for your facing tile where one or more of the following actions will now be available: Inspect, Gather, Attack, Drink and/or Pick-up.

Developer/Technical

  • Fixed some possible bugs/errors caused by not converting item id’s to numbers (parseInt).

Beta 1.8.4 (Weekly)

Bugs

Fixed a bug where:

  • Cave houses were not spawning with items randomly.

Improvements/Changes

  • Initial game/save load sped up by around 10-20% depending on browser/hardware.
  • Skeletons can now sometimes spawn in generated templates/houses/boats.
  • Performing any action on a hidden enemy (Trap Door Spider) will now reveal it.

New

  • Derelict boats and rafts can now spawn in the open seas.
  • There is now a code console in options where you can any code without needing to load a mod.

Developer/Technical

  • Templating code/objects have been overhauled.

Beta 1.8.3 (Weekly)

Bugs

Fixed a bug where:

  • Digging/carving up environmental objects would sometimes produce an item with a negative durability.

Improvements/Changes

  • The Bow Drill is now crafted from the Hand Drill. The graphic now also reflects this.
  • The Raft now requires a Boat Paddle. The graphic now also reflects this.
  • The rafting graphic that appears under your while drifting now changes direction based on movement.
  • Attributes and stats in the HUD/GUI are now broken up on larger resolutions. The attributes are now more condensed in general as well.
  • The container window acts like the rest of the windows and saves it’s position/size between game re-loads.
  • You can now sometimes dig into fresh water resources from dirt/gravel/swamp tiles on the rare occasion.
  • Resting now uses the fastest available timing. There’s no more artificial delay, the delay that is there is literally how fast it takes to run the turns sequentially.

Developer/Technical

  • Updated supported browser version listing.
  • The Player.use item function has been removed; everything is now passed automatically via object variables to their proper actions.

  • Carving will no longer stop after carving blood, it will cycle through the next object on the tile.
  • You can now craft once again with 0 durability items.
  • Inventory containers (bags, backpacks, etc.) will now stay open on movement.
  • All crafted items now get at least 1 durability.
  • Expert level items are a bit harder to craft (versus a skill check).
  • Some miscellaneous spelling fixes.

New

  • A new “Gather Treasure” action has been added to the item menu for shovels and fishing nets. This is to be used instead of trying to decode the map near the treasure. It will automatically cycle through what ever maps you have in your inventory to find a match.
  • A light radius has been added to cave entrances. The intensity of light is determined by the time of day/night.
  • The rafting (or drift) system has been overhauled. Rafts can now be used in any water and will allow you to move at normal speeds, outside of the water. Raft is damaged based on movement.

Beta 1.8.1 (Weekly)

Released March 27th, 2014.

Bugs

Fixed a bug where:

  • Monsters could spawn on top of fire of other blocking environmental objects.
  • Placing a tile on grass was ignoring the proper stack (and not turning the grass to dirt).
  • Pouring a Pile of Snow was making game and save file completely unplayable.

  • You could not kill a Blindfish due to an error.
  • Where dropping an item would always close an inventory container dialog.

New

  • Tiles now have a minimum and maximum property added to them (same system as the recent environmental item change). There isn’t much gameplay change here yet – but will happen soon!

Technical

  • Offline build now uses node-webkit 0.9.2. This should improve performance; however, it seems kind of buggy with sound.

Beta 1.7.4 (Weekly)

Released March 13th, 2014

Bugs

Fixed a bug where:

  • Dropping an inventory container would not close it and cause errors.
  • Pouring water on open fire would not extinguish it.

  • There is now a loading icon to signify loading times. This is only partially implemented right now and will only happen on initial page load and during resting.
  • Resting now uses a loading cycle. This will stop the freezing resting was causing especially during night (or with campfire bonus). This change also allows you to see your stats change over the period of your rest.
  • The Jelly Cube now has significant more resistance from Blunt damage.
  • Chicken feather drop rate has been halved (due to another creature sharing it’s effect).
  • Lots of monster graphic changes to make the difference between aberrant and normals much more apparent.

  • Branches are no longer pole-likes.
  • Campfire graphic changed slightly to show the non-requirement of fuel/pole-likes.

  • Starting a game with an equipped torch would not provide a light bonus until you moved.
  • Equipping a torch would not provide a light bonus until you moved.
  • Dialogs could be moved past screen a bit.
  • Dialogs would move a bit when you closed and opened them back up after resizing them.
  • Hitting a creature in water while on ground would produce Swimming skill gains, particle effects, and even cure “Burning Pain”.
  • Moving into chests or other blocked tiles while encumbered would reduce stamina and potentially hurt you.
  • Legendary items would change their bonuses on each pick-up.

Improvements/Changes

  • Rendering performance improved a bit.
  • A Pole-like is no longer needed in the Campfire recipe.
  • Added a meta tag that should stop iOS (beta) from displaying the top/bottom bars.
  • Dialogs now support smaller minimum widths and heights to support more customized placements/layouts.

  • Raw Clay can now be placed back down as a tile.
  • When you place a tile over grass, it will now die and turn to dirt.

New

  • Added favicon and app icon support for iOS/Android/Microsoft including retina displays with a new Wayward icon (instead of the “U” from Unlok).

  • Mod loading messages were always in red, and even resulted in success if there was an error.
  • You could not use previous/next buttons in the Hints (or Help) dialog.
  • Moving into a locked chest would open an empty container dialog.

Beta 1.7

Special thanks to vlsd and Orillian on this release.

Released February 16th, 2014

Bug Fix

  • Fixed a bug where clicking off and on a dialog when scrolled would reset the scroll bar position.
  • Fixed a bug where ponds would spawn too close to the shore.
  • Fixed several Internet Explorer 11 issues including not being able to click on HUD menus.
  • Fixed a bug where quickslotted items would be removed on game load and be completely inaccessible.
  • Fixed an issue where the numbers would disappear in quickslots in Firefox.
  • A check under the player is now done on every turn (to check if there’s a fire under you).
  • Fixed a bug where items would not decay properly on the ground.
  • Fixed a bug where pouring water on a Lit Stone Water Still would cause it to disappear.
  • Fixed a bug where “Remove All Data” did not remove Milestones or Crafts.
  • Fixed some errors that may occur with containers on rare occasions.
  • Shift + right click has been disabled in Firefox (causes context menu to display and traps “shift” as always on). Use alt instead in Firefox.
  • Fixed an oversight that disallowed all touch events (this has been hot-fixed in beta 1.6).
  • All aberrants now drop items. This also fixed the aberrant milestone not triggering.
  • Fixed an error occurring when trying to light a fire with an empty container equipped.
  • Fixed a bug where gathering would ignore the previous stack of tiles under it. For example, gathering a Stone Wall back into your inventory would always spawn dirt underneath even if you placed other terrain types under it previously.
  • “Save and Exit” removed for Firefox. Firefox does not support exiting a tab/window without native browser input.
  • Fixed “00” score bug when dying on no/low score. Score formula slight change (no longer counts number of treasures).
  • Fixed several errors and oversights relating to treasure items and travelling home (would not always count the proper amount). Removed all treasure finding messages.
  • Equipped containers no longer get damaged (preventing several errors and unintended consequences).
  • Fixed a bug that would slightly resize/move each dialog on each load.
  • Fixed a long standing bug that would cause the character to continue moving if focus of the tab/window was left while a key was being pressed (among other causes). This would routinely cause players to die as they would continue walking into monsters or getting hurt from stamina loss.

  • Doubled durability bonus on Remarkable/Exceptional/Legendary (tripled).
  • Stone Walls now require Large Rocks for crafting.
  • Lockpicking, opening bottles, using a Spyglass/Sundial, and using any edible/healing/curing items now all pass a turn.
  • Environmental items are now damaged when dug/carved back up. If they reach 0 durability, you can no longer use them in that context.
  • Pressing ESC while in the inventory/crafting filter will now clear and un-focus it.
  • Waterskin now requires less skill to create.
  • It now takes a less fuel/stoking to make a fire “raging”.
  • Fresh water now has a very rare chance to spawn around mountainous terrain.
  • Health now regenerates slower by default.
  • Durability of items used in craft now effects the durability of the crafted item now.
  • You now start with some randomization starting pools of stamina/hunger/thirst/health. This effect is doubled for Daily Challenge Mode.
  • Food now generally decays a bit faster across the board. Hunger rate increased a small amount.
  • Facing a fire while resting will now provide bonuses to regenerative effects and duration.
  • Higher tiered monsters will now attack a bit harder.
  • Spear attack values lowered across all tiers.
  • Lowered Living Mushroom spawn chance.
  • Cover art now supports resolutions above 1920×1080.
  • All randomness in the game is now based on your seed. Will come in next version as implementing causes world generation changes.
  • You can now quickslot every item. If there is no uses/actions available, it will default to being thrown.

  • Equipment/crafting dialogs have been separated from the inventory. New hotkeys added for equipment (E), and crafting (C). Skill hotkey is now X.
  • As with any release, there’s been several performance improvements.
  • Several HUD and GUI improvements including a fix to opacity contrast on some transparent elements. The HUD/GUI is still a work in progress.
  • The main menu is now used when starting a game. This will allow new game-modes and other options.
  • Plants that are planted are not automatically non-fertile.
  • Removed all “Poor” items. They have been all renamed to match material descriptors instead of quality descriptors. Several minor recipe changes because of this.
  • “Dump” action changed to “Set Down”.
  • Better positioning added for item menus near the right or bottom edge of the screen – mouse cursor should now always be positioned within them.
  • There is now no maximum size for dialogs. Make them as big as you want! The minimum height has also been decreased.

New

  • New batch of Milestones added.

  • There is now an auto save that happens every 5000 turns in case of crash.
  • You can throw any item. The distance is dependant on the item’s weight and Throwing skill. The damage is dependant on the attack value of the item thrown, or the weight if the item has no attack value shown in the tool-tip. Some items can only be thrown if the player has the proper strength (based on item’s weight).
  • There’s a variety of new resting items and changes to the current Leaf Bedroll for balance. There’s a few other surprises as well.
  • There is new status effect called “Burning Pain”.
  • Zoom in/out options added to the options menu.

Developer/Technical

  • Seeds are now defined with a base (for map generation) and a saved to continue the seed on game loads.
  • ?convert-save can now be used in the URL to force a save conversion. Useful for in-development versions.
  • Uses are now defined in an array. No more “use/secondaryuse”. onUse also added as an object to define effects for each use.
  • “tile” removed from all item naming conventions to be more consistent with the item name.
  • Monster spawning definitions (such as the new spawnTiles/spawnTalent) are now defined in with the rest of monster data (npcs) to be modified/dynamically altered during gameplay.

Beta 1.6

Special thanks to arktvrvs and Grom_PE on this release.

Released December 6th, 2013

Bug Fix

  • Fixed a bug where milestones and crafted items were getting removed when closing the game directly after death.
  • Fixed a bug where both hands would not attack depending on what was equipped or not equipped. Both hands should now be used in an attack no matter what now.
  • Fixed (indirectly) a bug that caused the minimap to glitch out when near edge of world.
  • Fixed several music errors and bugs related to switching tracks or multiple tracks playing at the same time.
  • Fixed an exploit that would allow you to reset your thirst by eating something that made you gain thirst.
  • Fixed a bug that was damaging random items on attack (with no weapons). Attacking with your hands can now hurt you in combat again (was bugged).
  • Fixed a bug where Trout could go on land after being attacked.

  • Fixed a bug where lighting a fire successfully was taking two turns.
  • Fixed a bug where some dialog buttons were not working in IE9.

Improvement/Change

  • Damaged items now show in red inside containers like in inventory.
  • Tinder, Kindling, and Fuel-likes have been removed from crafting recipes. Lighting a fire now requires each of these (unless using a torch, then you only need fuel). If you are starting the fire on a flammable tile, you don’t need fuel.
  • Sandstone is now a rock-like item. Kilns now require a rock-like (instead of Sandstone, specifically). This is until the world map changes are in.
  • Default light radius around your character is now gone. Be scared! And… grab a torch!

  • Trouts now spawn more commonly than sharks.
  • Scared creatures now try to escape (randomly) when they are scared instead of lock into combat with you.

  • Fixed grammar to correct “drinking” of drinkable items as well as “cooked” of cooking crafted items.
  • Starting items, resource gathering, monster loot, chest loot all now have a chance to be Remarkable (uncommon), Exceptional (rare) or even Legendary (very rare) items.
  • Using Remarkable, Exceptional and Legendary items in a craft now effect the chances of your craft also taking on these qualities. Reduced chance of creating Remarkable items by default. You can now craft Remarkable/Exceptional items across everything (instead of just limited to equippables).

  • Poison, bleeding and burned status effects are now have randomized damage and scale with your strength. Equipment now taken into account for burn damage and can absorb some or all of the damage.

  • Bows now need to be equipped to be used.
  • There is now particle effects on thrown/shot items.

  • There is now slightly more monsters on new world generation by default.
  • Living Rocks now drop Limestone and Talc in addition to others items.
  • Treasure loot is now improved with a better chance of more items, and better items. Also fixed a bug that was limiting treasure and producing errors on chest unlock.

New

  • Most containers can now be equipped. Ammunition will be searched for in equipped containers before checking rest of inventory. There is new “Back” slot in the inventory.
  • You can now fast equip armor, weapons and tools by clicking the equip to command from the new item menu. It will automatically swap things out just as per normal drag + drop functionality. For held items, it will target the left hand first, then the right hand (if something is equipped already in the left hand), then continue swapping for just the right hand.
  • New context/item menu implemented via single click on to item. The new item menu will feature all interactions that you can use the item for. This opens up lots of future possibilities. There’s only a couple of interactions right now, but expect to see more options soon!
  • A few new unique creatures and tons of new items/crafts including some rare/special stuff. No spoilers!
