What's Happening This Week

4 August 2021

Explorers,

We’re back with our latest Weekly Focus blog!

This will be a regular series where we’ll take a look at what the team is focusing their attention on this week, as well as their response to some of the top community feedback and suggestions we’ve received.


Developer Focus

Scavengers Dev Focus August 3rd

Here, we’ll talk about some of the top topics that the team is working on this week. This isn’t their only focus - we’ll be highlighting only the main topics they’re focused on:

  • August 4th Hotfix: We’re rolling out another Hotfix this week. This should fix some server crashes and fix several text chat issues in the game. We are continuing investigation into other ongoing text chat issues.
  • X-Fyre Issue: Last week we identified an issue with the X-Fyre bow where using it could cause a crash. We temporarily removed the X-Fyre from the game. This week, we’re working on fixing that issue so that the X-Fyre will once again be available for use.
  • Stamina Tuning Pass: We’re taking a look at how Stamina functions in Scavengers. We’re doing a tuning pass to improve how Stamina feels.
  • Horde Mode Improvement: We’ve talked about improving Horde Mode. The goal for our first set of improvements is to adjust the scalability and difficulty.
  • Performance Optimization: Although we haven’t talked about it recently, optimization is always a priority. We’re currently working on improving the UI performance, which should hopefully help lower spec machines and aid us in getting console closer to release.

Top Community Feedback

Scavengers Community Feedback August 3rd

We’re on this Scavengers journey with you, and we want to improve and refine the game with the feedback and suggestions from our community. Although the team is constantly going through your feedback and incorporating them into our updates and hotfixes, we haven’t had a really good way to let you know what might be coming in the medium to long term.

So, every week, we'll share our thoughts on some of the top community feedback topics that we’ve been seeing on our platforms. We may work on some of these for a future update; some of these could be part of a long-term plan and might not have a date for when they’ll arrive in Scavengers. Others, we may be investigating or considering adding, but can’t promise that you’ll see them in the game. Finally, for some, we want to continue hearing your feedback and thoughts on, to ensure we’re considering the right way to approach it. Let’s break them down:

Investigating: We’re interested in adding these to the game and are currently looking into how it might work. We don’t have any definite plans, so they may or may not be added in a future update.

  • Extra Salvage: Acquiring Salvage is important so you can Research weapons, items, and Talents. For some though, you’ve already Researched everything and have no way to use the extra Salvage. We’re interested in finding other ways for you to use your Salvage. We’re also looking into adding new Salvage types to Scavengers...
  • Auto Sprint: Providing the option to automatically sprint is interesting. It could open up new possibilities, such as making it easier to search the Inventory while moving forward. This is something we are interested in investigating, especially with how it could function on controllers.

Blogs & Event

Here’s where we’ll keep you updated on what blog content you might see!
