Primal Specific Housekeeping business
At the request of several players, Rage, Fury and Carnage will all be going onto a 2 week wipe schedule. So the next wipe for these 3 servers will be on June 20th. The hope is this will prevent the population die off that happens about 10 days after a wipe. Hopefully we can retain more players through out the month.
In the event that there is a 5 week month, the last week of the month will be a one week wipe, leading up to the forced wipe.
These 3 servers will be on a 3K map until the population starts to build up again. Be sure you get your friends to join. I would obviously like to see Rage and Fury grow as much as Carnage has in the last couple months. You guys are doing great. Player retention has been great.
Instinct will also be going to a 3K map, but will remain on the normal wipe schedule.
When the servers go down for the update today, I will be addressing Rustio, so you should be able to get the map again, after the update.
Another thing I want to address is the people that are continuously building bases inside of rock formations. I know when you do it. And I will continue to foundation your bases until you stop doing it. SO STOP DOING IT.
How can you call yourself a raider when you don't let your opponent get you back. I'm about fair game play as are most Primal Players.
I know who you are and I will be keeping a close eye on you and anyone you associate with.
The server that takes care of VIP purchases is down, and I don't know if it's coming back any time soon. The developer appears to have abandoned the project. So I will be looking for alternatives over the next couple days. I will keep you all posted as that develops.
Horse back riding is in
The much anticipated ride-able horses are here, finally.
Controls are as you would expect, W,A,D. For now there is no moving backwards on a horse, but you can rear up and expel a loud 'NEIGH", but press control on your keyboard.
Research Costs Have Been Lowered
The community has requested it, and so shall it be.
Items that used to cost 250 scrap to research, now cost 125 scrap.
Items that used to cost 750 scrap to research, now only cost 500 scrap.
This is a huge buff to research. People are going to be raid ready in much less time that we've become used to. After a blueprint wipe, of course.
New ingame UI
The devs have finally addressed the very much needed overhaul to the ingame UI. Servers will be much easier to define, the over look is just much better. The best part is, you can search servers by wipe date. Which is going to be huge.
Everything you've been used to finding will still be there, with some subtle changes. For example, you will be able to purchase skins directly from the ingame UI now, as opposed to having to visit the steam store before loading into the game. Kinda cool.
Scrollable Sleeping Bags
You will now be able to access the many many sleeping bags that you have placed all over the map. By being able to scroll through your list of sleeping bags, you will be able to place more than ever before.
Oil Rig Nerf
Much to my dismay, they have nerfed the loot on the oil rigs. Apparently, the community thinks the loot you can get from the rigs is too, high? Who would ever think loot is too high? That's crazy talk. Anyway, that's where we are; they have nerfed the loot on the oil rigs.
This, of course, doesn't apply when there are loot modifiers in place. But you will still notice a change.
Improved Player Movements
As I'm sure some of you have already noticed, your newman moves around a little differently. Like not getting blocked by a little rock on the road. Now your little dude will move right over top of it. Well, they have continued this body of work and have made you character move even better, so you should notice things are a little smoother to climb up and maneuver over.
GIANT EXCAVATOR IS NOT MAKING IT IN THIS MONTH
Not much to be said here, but it's important that we know that it isn't coming yet. Hopefully next month?!?
Other Minor Fixes
Boats are no longer silent as you creep along the ocean.
Watch towers can no longer be placed under the map, for you dirty little glitch users.
You will no longer look like you're holding a sword when placing a code lock, now you'll be holding a building plan, as it should be.
