  • Workshop, Crafting, Scavenging and Foraging Update Now Live!

    Continuing with improvements meant to simplify game systems and make them more appealing and engaging, Xsyon's latest patch is live!

    This patch features the Workshop building use. Buildings assigned as Workshops serve as crafting stations. When standing within the bounds of a Workshop, all tools and materials in that building are automatically available in the crafting panel. No more need to sort through baskets of items to fill recipes.

    Scavenging and Foraging have also been revised. Rather than search, retrieve a random item and move on, several items are automatically available as the player moves across the terrain. The player can these choose what to pick up or not.

    Full patch notes describing these and other new features have already been posted here

    Note: I typically like to wait a few days after a patch to make a wider announcement in case there are bugs that need quick fixes.

    Crafting, Interface and Interaction Patch Goes Live!

    Over the years, Xsyon's primary audience has switched from players familiar with the MMOs of the past to a newer audience accustomed to the sandbox survival games of the present.

    Accordingly, I am working on revising the interface and basic actions to accommodate and be more welcoming to new players. Most interface revisions will be optional and customizable to adapt to new player but keep things as is for veteran players of the game.

    Today's patch is the first in a series that will continue to include improvements based on player suggestions. This patch includes a new crafting panel, improvements to selection and interaction and many minor revisions requested by players.

    Full Patch Notes are available.

    Ranged Combat Is Live!

    Bows and arrows are now live!

    In celebration, Xsyon will be on sale through Monday, May 31st.

    This long awaited feature completes Xsyon's major planned features required for removing Early Access on Steam. However, I will be patching some interface and gathering action revisions before finally removing Early Access.

    These upcoming changes will include revised crafting and construction panels along with streamlining the interface further in general and providing players with interface options to accommodate different styles of play.

    A feedback thread has been posted in the Developer Zone.

    Ranged Combat (Bows) In Public Testing!

    Ranged combat is finally available for public testing on the Test Server!

    This long awaited feature is nearing completion and all feedback is welcome. Please check out the Feedback Request for bows and join in the test session.

    To celebrate this major testing session, Xsyon will be on sale (67% Off) through Monday, May 3rd.

    Bows just need some final adjustments to be ready for patching to the live servers. This is the last major feature required to remove the Early Access label from Xsyon on Steam and I am really looking forward to this big step.

    I will post information on what else is currently in the works in a few days.
