1.9 OCEAN ODYSSEYS - Changelog

Recommended Posts


What's new:

  • Sharks. Better stay in your boat!
  • Underwater biotopes full of life and surprises
  • Ships can take damage and even sink
  • Useful new ship devices
  • Friends' location is displayed on the map



YES! Sharks are back and they’re more dangerous than ever - though you still have a chance to escape them. There are multiple underwater predators, waiting to pounce on unprepared explorers.


Underwater biotopes

Craft diving gear and explore underwater life. You can visit 9 new biotope types, gather new resources, discover new random encounters, and admire and catch fish from fish shoals.


Fish shoals

There are 18 kinds of fish shoals for you to admire during the long deep dive. You can even catch fish to get food or rare resources.


Underwater environment lighting

Small change for sure, but a welcome one. It makes sense that you want to see where you’re swimming, right? 


Oxygen management

Take a deep breath for your underwater adventure. New diving gear will come in handy at this point, as it lets you dive deeper and swim faster. 


Underwater cave generation

This is just the beginning of a largescale underwater adventure. While you may only find small caves at the moment, the foundation for cave generation is now in place and will be expanded upon considerably in the future.


Ship devices 

When you want to experience a proper ocean odyssey, you definitely need as much information about your surroundings as possible. So let's build new equipment for your ship that warns you before you run out of fuel, tells you how fast your ship is sailing, enables you to find deep waters with random encounters more easily, and lets you know the status of your ship’s health.


Damageable ships and boats

Now there’s another reason for you to build cannons on your ships because it’s possible to attack players with your ship on certain ylands. But be careful what you wish for because what goes around, comes around – meaning those ships can fire back at you! Keep an eye on your ship’s health, and keep the Repair hammer and resources close because you’re going to need them. Not only in case of naval battles, but ships can take damage in a collision with obstacles and even in severe weather, better put down the anchor wen the large waves comes.



Let's play pirates! You’ll now find a new PvP setting in your server settings that lets you decide whether you want other players to be able to attack your properties from the sea or even engage in naval battles.


Playing with friends

Friends and clan members are able to see each other on the map by default. But if you’re a fan of hide and seek, just change the settings! We also tweaked the friends list, so it's now clear who can join in the game and who you can invite. An improved spawn system will summon you much closer to your friend's avatar. Now you can jump straight into playing with your friends without having to find each other on the huge maps!


Loot container

Dying in the game is unpleasant, that’s for sure. But it’s even worse if you die with a full inventory because collecting everything again is such a struggle. That’s why we’re adding a loot container in 1.9, which keeps everything from your inventory in one container.


Editor improvements

We’ve improved the Editor as well. Just a few small tweaks and add-ons, but we’re constantly working on it, so you can expect more improvements with every update. This time we focused on the user experience:

  • Selected script tiles are now much more distinguished than unselected tiles

  • Entity and Game Logic can now be selected directly from the Scripting Canvas using the new search option.
  • It is possible to customize the colors of Custom Instructions and Variables for better script organization and readability.
  • You can now customize the default data type of variables and parameters of Custom Instructions.
  • Member variables can be now made public on all objects (not only on Storage).

  • Improved search now highlights search text on instructions.

  • New, long requested, Switch logical operator.

  • New Group Template game logic for spawning groups from the script.

Yeah, please bring this feature back. Shooting gunpowder kegs as explosive ammo, or shooting stone chunks to down trees quickly are integral parts of the game IMO!

I've never considered shooting junk out of cannons, but now with the easy multi-player world traveling, I kind of miss it. Please add catapults back.

[YLD-34561] Tweaked: Changed bear bait recipe to 6x any meat.

This is inaccurate, in-game it is now 3x Any Meat + 5x Any Small Fish, so which one is meant to be correct? Trying to update the Wiki after a very long hiatus!

Also I've noticed that the Small Ylandium Power Cell and the regular power cell now have the same recipe needing only 1 of each ingredient which I assume isn't intentional?
