Hello all,

Thanks for checking out our 35th devblog. On Monday we released our 1.7 patch on Steam and it introduced solo and hosting gameplay. The team is working on 1.8 and the up coming graphical update along side quite a bit more. Todays update will be a quick. a little hotfix and the release of linux server builds along with how to get them. We'll be back to our regular weekly devblogs friday with another peek at what has been going into 1.8 and beyond.

Hotfix 1.7.37
  • MessageSystem.cs optimisation to save all the instances of finding object with tag.
  • UI updates for settings stamina to disabled when option is turned off.
  • Made vehicles slight more common based on config option.
  • Another fix for disabling hordes

Linux Servers & Steamcmd

If you're interested in running linux servers we likely don't have to explain the steps to you here. To be perfectly honest while our official servers do run on Linux we've not really had a chance to develop on it and don't have an in house Linux machine. Steamcmd should install the depot without issue giving you access to the Config folder, running a server should be as easy as editing config files and running ./Linux_Server_x64.

If you don't have Steamcmd you'll need to install it along with some dependencies. Below are the steps we've taken to install via Steamcmd and the project.

sudo mkdir /home/[user]/steamcmd
cd /home/[user]/steamcmd
sudo wget http://media.steampowered.com/installer/steamcmd_linux.tar.gz
sudo tar -xvzf steamcmd_linux.tar.gz
sudo apt-get install lib32gcc1
sudo ./steamcmd.sh
login [user][pass][tfa]
Steam>force_install_dir ../stn (or whatever you want to name it)
app_upadate 1502300 validate
Windows Servers -

Currently we only have a Linux based depot on Steam but we'll be working on a Windows based option shortly. We have had quite a few requests for windows server files and while it technically is possible with the packaged files it's not ideal and requires some messing about. We'll have a nicely put together Windows option as soon as possible.

Merch Shop!

While we're currently unable to sell merch in house which is what we would ideally love to one day do. We have opted into a 3rd party seller Teespring to provide those that have requested it the ability to pick up some cool merch and help out the team.

Thanks for the continued support and continued issue and suggestion reporting :). Below are some helpful links to anyone new and interested in the game. If you'd like to follow a bit closer, please consider joining our Discord. We're here, we're listening!
