Hey Bumfuzzlers! I’ve got a couple of changes to tell about before Thursday’s map wipe! News on randomized skins, crafting instantly, scuba gear availability, quests and more! All that and info on tomorrow’s wipe, plus another mandatory Facepunch patch on Friday? /crosses fingers lol Give a read to find out more!
I reviewed the diving gear availability and it seemed a little low. Also, it was spawning in the underwater loot which seemed weird lol
I changed the following:
- removed from underwater crates
- increased availability slightly
Thanks for the feedback Non-Existant
We had instacraft a while back and then adjusted it to require some crafting time. It feels like it’s time to go back to instacraft and apparently the majority of you agree.
We had a poll in Discord and while the nays valiantly voted, the yes sirs had double them. Now Instacraft is enabled so there won’t be any more waiting to craft individual items or bulk items.
Let’s see how it turns out.
Skins have been messy lately and the last major patch broke some stuff. For instance, you probably noticed that skins no longer randomized on crafting.
Well, I just fixed it this morning. Now every time you craft, you’ll get a randomized skin on items that support skins. Glad this is working again. I love the varied look of bases!
It’s time for new quests! After all, you’re on an adventure 🙂
Here’s a list of the new Quests I added:
- Lighthouse Collector – Gather 25 Blue Rustige Eggs
- Dome Collector – Gather 25 Red Rustige Eggs
- Easter Morning – Gather 25 Easter Baskets
- Radioactive Personality – Gather 25 Geiger Counters
- Happy Birthday – Gather 25 Five Year Cakes
- Up in Flames – Destroy 3 Flame Turrets
- Shotty Defenses – Destroy 3 Shotgun Traps
- Air Offence – Destroy 1 SAM Site
- Run with Scissors – Craft 100 Bandages
- Grand Injection – Craft 50 Medical Syringes
- First Aid Kit – Craft 25 Large Medical Kits
- The Machine – Craft 25 Gears
- Snappy Dresser – Craft 25 Snap Traps
- Spikey Proposition – Craft 10 Wooden Floor Spikes
- All Mines – Craft 10 Land Mines
- Laser Red – Craft 1 Auto-Turret
- Fire in the Hole – Craft 3 Flame Turrets
- Riding Shotgun – Craft 3 Shotgun Traps
I expect to create more of them in the future so that each quest page is full!
Thursday 6/20, Bumfuzzlertopia will be wiping the map. Blueprints and economy will stay in place as they only wipe on the first of the month. For those who don’t know, we wipe twice a month.
- Wipe #1: First Thursday of the month – wipes map, economy, and blueprints
- Wipe #2: Third Thursday of the month – wipes map only
I considered wiping economy on this 3rd Thursday, which is why I started that Discord poll, but players are broken down the middle and truth is I tend to think it’s a reward for playing the entire month instead of just a 2-week wipe cycle. Also, it doesn’t matter because the economy is only really good for buying blueprints which players will have at the start of the second monthly wipe cycle anyway.
I’m hoping to wipe around 4 pm EST at the latest and we’ll be going with this map if you’d like to get a head start planning your base!
As always Bumfuzzlers, please have fun and keep the feedback pouring in! It really helps fix issues and also improve gameplay!
P.S. – Friday brings a mandatory Facepunch patch. I haven’t gotten the time yet. This means I’ll have to update the server for you to join after your clients auto-update. I’ll do my best to communicate the planned time. I’m waiting on them.
