    State of Decay

    The Lifeline DLC for State of Decay isn’t with us yet but there is a new patch for the PC on Steam this morning. The update brings fixes to game physics, a smoothed framerate, and zombies even prefer tasty NPCs. Yum!

    The game should update on Steam adding the following changes.

    Physics and Pathing

    • Made vehicles less flippy
    • Improved vehicle entry distances
    • Added a physics test when a vehicle flips to avoid throwing you out of the environment
    • Fixed glass failing to break properly
    • Fixed potential crash when zombies try to path outside of the playable area
    • Fixed zombies occasionally running in straight line towards target through collision
    • Fixed zombies getting stuck facing each other
    • Fixed dead zombies running in place
    • Reduced instances of zombies walking through doors
    • Radius is now proper on aggro range (fireworks, talking dolls, etc. now only pull nearby zombies)
    • Hordes no longer target buildings they can’t infest
    • Changed the floor height on industrial warehouses to fix pathing

    Shooting

    • Increased snap distance of all guns
    • Removed rotation spread penalty on all assault rifles and SMGs
    • Tuned aim friction

    Graphics and Sound

    • Smoothed framerate
    • Increased range for the home base audio loading
    • Fixed base environment audio preload

    Zombies and AI

    • Zombies prefer tasty NPCs (taunting, blazing, cowering NPCs)
    • Zombies prefer tasty targets (fireworks, talking dolls, etc. over echos and disturbances)
    • Cleaned up zombie distribution

    Outposts and Resources

    • Corrected the daily resource calculations on asset page of journal
    • Capped the number of resources you can receive on subsequent offline days at 15
    • New outpost resource model
      • Each outpost costs 1 material for upkeep for the first day you’re offline
      • All resource outpost types now correctly generate resources
      • If an outpost contains resources it generates 3 of that resource

    Cleaning up Under the Hood

    • Fixed bug preventing the Steam leaderboard score from maintaining your highest scores
    • Retroactively award Breakdown achievements for unlocked characters
    • Implemented fix for crashes if an NPC is trying to enter a vehicle and you exit and continue
    • Fixed an issue with button substitutions
    • Changed main menu selection to support upcoming Lifeline DLC
    • Fixed world-reset issue when switching from the base game to Breakdown and vice versa
