Free Content Patches: What to expect as we move beyond Early Access.
Thu, 2 January 2020

Greetings everyone! Now that Rise to Ruins has left Early Access, it's time to talk about how development will progress from here on out. As I've stated in the past, development will not end when the game leaves Early Access. But, I would like to change how patches work from here.

In the past I tried to releases giant major patches. A huge part of this was up until 2019 major patches broke your save data, so I wanted to be sure I added enough content all at once to make it worthwhile to start over. But, for a large majority of 2019 save files are no longer broken when new patches are releases, and I of course don't plan to break them moving forward from here.

So, what I'm going to start doing is stop releasing future patch Road Maps outlining huge patches with tons of content. Rather, I'm going to start releasing much smaller, more frequent patches and people interested in following very closely with development can either follow me on twitter, or join our discord.

Although there will still be occasional big patches, it really depends on what mechanics are being added. Some new mechanics may simply be so extensive they would be nonsensical broken up into smaller parts. For example, the recent hunting patch would not have made much sense if I broke it up into smaller pieces where I added just animals, then just hunting, then just animal pens, and then just butchering/slaughtering mechanics all individually as separate smaller patches. None of those mechanics would have functioned correctly without the other parts.

Just a reminder, as I said in the past all future patches will not be DLC. All future content will be 100% free, and included in the base game. Rise to Ruins will continue to get free content patches as long as I am selling enough copies to support myself and development.

Build Update 1 Unstable 1 Released
Sun, 19 January 2020


Click here for help on accessing the Unstable branch! https://risetoruins.com/index.php?/topic/263-how-to-access-unstable-builds-on-steam/

Update 1 Unstable 1 has arrived! This patch adds a ton of small improvements and bug fixes, some balance changes, and most importantly a completely overhauled spell system! :)

This patch introduces a ton of new mechanics that can greatly impact the overall balance of the game. So be sure to let me know in the comments what you think of all the new mechanics and how they're impacting your gameplay so I can fine tune them for the eventual full release.

Enjoy!

Update 1 Unstable 1 Change Log


New Walls and Specter Mechanics

•   Added Crylithium Curtain Walls, Crylithium Walls and Crylithium Gates to the game. They all can block specters and ghosts from passing through them.
•   Specters and Ghosts can no longer cross crystal patches.
•   Regular Curtain Walls no longer block specters and ghosts from passing through them.
•   All old saves before this patch get their Curtain Walls updated to Crylithium Curtain Walls automatically and free, so late game villages don't get overrun with specters after this change.
•   Reorganized the walls category into two subcategories.


Spell and Influence Overhaul

•   New Spell: Construct. Uses your godly powers to assist in constructing buildings, but requires the resources to already be delivered to the build site.
•   New Spell: Divine Blessing. Bless a villager, causing their next born child to be a Nephilim with superior strength, dexterity and lifespan.
•   New Spell: God Tower. Summons a magic bow tower with unlimited ammo. Requires a portion of your maximum influence to maintain. Can be dispelled with the Dispel Structure spell.
•   New Spell: God Wall. Summons a magic wall that will help block all types of monsters, including specters, from crossing. Requires a portion of your maximum influence to maintain. Can be dispelled with the Dispel Structure spell.
•   New Spell: Harvest. Automatically harvests resources from the region, dropping them on the ground for your villagers to quickly collect. Make sure you cast this in range of your village, else nobody will come pick anything up!
•   New Spell: Holy Potatoes. Sprouts magic potatoes from the ground, really handy if you've just completely run out of food or want to create a new patch elsewhere in the village!
•   New Spell: Holy Wood. Sprouts large erections of wood from the ground, really handy if you've just completely run out of wood or want to create a new patch elsewhere in the village!
•   New Spell: Dispel Golem. Dispel a previously summoned or combobulated golem. Will work on any golem in the village, including the ones you did not summon yourself. Typically should be used to dispel labor or holy golems to regain some of your maximum influence.
•   New Spell: Dispel God Structure. Dispel a previously summoned structure to regain some of your maximum influence.
•   A new type of influence mechanic has been added. Now some spells can last forever, but they take up a portion of your maximum influence to maintain. For example, Labor Golems now last forever, but permanently reserve 300 points of influence on your influence bar until you dispel them, or they are killed by monsters.
•   Some spells like Conjure Essence and Flame can now be continuously casted, meaning you can hold down the mouse button to continue casting them rather than clicking.
•   Many of the old spells now have cooldowns, but have also been buffed or rebalanced accordingly.
•   Labor and Holy Golems no longer die slowly over time, but do require influence to be maintained.
•   Slightly reduced how much maximum influence the player gets per villager.
•   Uncorked the influence absolute maximum, there is no longer a maximum cap on how much total influence you can have.
•   Your maximum influence now uses the entire bar (visibly), but the amount of maximum influence still increases per villager.
•   Influence gained per tick is now based on a percentage of maximum influence rather than a fixed amount.
•   The spell select panel and spell descriptions panel have been completely overhauled.
•   Revised many of the spell descriptions.
•   Added a spell radius display when you have a spell selected.
•   Reduced the particle count on the influence bar.


Miscellaneous Changes

•   Screenshot files are now tagged with the version number of the game they were taken with.
•   Cleaned up some of the mouse tooltip message positions.
•   Added pointer lines from selected buildings to the building's occupants or workers.
•   Added lavender color trees to the game. Currently only used for the Holy Wood spell.
•   Added holy potatoes to the game. Currently only used for the Holy Potatoes spell.
•   A new mob type called "Nephilim" to the game, that is currently created via the new Divine Blessing spell. These new villagers have longer lifespans and boosted stats.
•   Changed the pregnancy icon to look more like a rattle.
•   Kitchen now increases worker's cooked meat and boiled egg refine time when upgraded.
•   Updated the graveyard's tooltips.


Bug Fixes

•   Added fix to buildings to prevent them from being stuck at >100% completed on load after receiving a perk that reduces construction time.
•   Fixed several minor typos.
•   Fixed a rare endless loop crash that could happen if monsters tried to spawn from a completely blocked in corrupted fire pit.
•   Fixed a minor bug that would cause villagers to not lose hunger points when they mated.
•   Fixed some animal mating issues.
•   Fixed the construction outline and abandoned graphics for all gates.
•   Fixed a very rare crash caused by an endless loop in the trajectory calculation code.
•   Fixed a bug that was causing work speed reductions due to high wind to be calculated twice.
•   Fixed a bug that wouldn't allow any golems to get their level increase perk unless the player had the wood golem level perk.
•   Charmed monsters no longer threaten tiles.
•   Fixed an issue where mobs would actually lose hunger, thirst and energy slower when working, rather than faster.
•   Fixed a minor bug that could cause newborn animals to spawn the wrong color.
•   Fixed a minor bug where catjeet elders would not show up on the population panel when the filter was set to "Elder".
•   Fixed a bug where sometimes specters could be banished to inside your village.
•   You can no longer upgrade the outpost while it's already being upgraded.
•   Fire pit construction can now be paused.
•   Fixed purple color crystals minimap color.
•   Slightly modified Casas, Wyvernedge and Death Pass to add more valid animal spawn locations.
•   Burner no longer trigger the energy usage tip when built.
•   Doggos now count on the domesticated stats panel.
•   Fixed the upgrade description panel text from overflowing on the Established Ranger Lodge description.
•   Ranger lodges no longer count on the problem panel as homes with no food.
•   Fixed the missing blank panels on the combobulator category on the right panel.

Bug Fixes

•   Charm spell works again.
•   Fixed a very minor bug where the save system would claim it's converting old road map save data when it wasn't, and the data was already converted.
•   Fixed a bug that could crash the game if a blessed regular male villager impregnated a nephilim and the nephilim tried to give birth.
•   Put in temporary fix for blessed nephilim child birth crashes so old Unstable 1 players already inflicted with the bug can continue to play their saves.
•   If the father of a child is re-blessed after the father impregnates the mother, the father will not become unblessed when the mother gives birth.
•   Fixed a bug that would allow you to attempt to cast some spells you don't meet the conditions for and not consuming the influence, but triggering the cooldown.
•   Nephilim now properly live an average of 10 days longer than their regular counterparts.
•   Resurrect spell cooldown now doesn't reset when you don't cast it in a ghost.

Rise to Ruins Soundtrack Now Available All Over The Internet.

The Rise to Ruins soundtrack is now uploaded all over the internet, including Spotify, Amazon Music, Youtube, Google Play and more!

All revenue (Less various store fees) from purchasing or listening to the soundtrack does not go to me, rather it goes to Rise to Ruins' composer, Josι Ramσn "Bibiki" Garcνa. So if you want to support him directly by throwing a few bucks his way, be sure to buy the soundtrack! :)

If you're interested in listening or purchasing the soundtrack on various platforms, you can click here to get started![distrokid.com]

Additionally, if you just want to jam out on youtube, you can find the full OST here.




And finally, always remember, the full sound track is always available unobfuscated within the game files, in .ogg format, just poke around the /res/music folder. But buying the soundtrack online is a way to support RtR's awesome composer, and get the files in a more appropriately organized format for easy listening on multiple devices. :)

Update 1b - The Bug Fix and Tweaks Update - Released!
Sun, 19 July 2020

This is a smaller patch full of a ton of small quality of life improvements, bug fixes and balance changes. This patch was originally going into Update 2, but I decided to break out some of the Update 2 content and move it to a smaller patch, so you can get some of the new improvements and changes early, without having to wait for Update 2 later. Enjoy! :)

Check out the change log for all the juicy bits, and if you find a bug, don't forget to report it on Discord or the Steam Forums. :)


Update 1b Change Log

Miscellaneous Changes
•   Essence Collectors no longer deliver essence when out of range of the village.
•   Drones now only harvest resources when there is not any already available within the corruption.
•   Resources now decay twice as fast on corrupted tiles.

•   Reduced the overall amount of resources generated when a very large or highly upgraded building is destroyed.

•   Rock now remains selected after harvesting.
•   Added hot key support for object upgrade buttons, but the hot keys must be assigned manually.
•   The hot key for dismantling buildings is now unassigned by default, but can still be assigned in settings. This is to prevent new players from accidentally triggering a dismantle action they can't reverse, but still allow experienced players to have a hot key if they desire.
•   Nerfed the Flame Spell's damage by 50%

Bug Fixes
•   Range is no longer improperly generated on initial load.
•   Fixed the never-ending god XP tally sound that sometimes occurs on the world map.
•   Fixed a rare bug that would crash the game in the event a mob would drop off a resource to a building that has just become out of range, and still had remaining resources to drop.
•   You can no longer start an upgrade on a building out of range of the village, causing the game to crash.
•   Fixed a bug that would cause the mouse to move too far when you increased or decreased the priority of a building on the building list panel.

•   Fixed an issue where several mob related perks would not apply correctly to the mobs.
•   Blight settings are now properly saved in custom game mode templates.
•   If a blessed villager has twins or triplets, all of the children will be born nephilims.
•   Fixed a few typos in the tool tips.
•   Fixed an extremely rare bug where sometimes mobs would reset their AI, and no longer be "dead" even if they have no hit points.

Build Update 2 Unstable 1 Released
Wed, 23 March 2022



A long time coming, I am happy to introduce that Update 2 Unstable 1 has arrived! This patch adds a ton bug fixes and improvements, but most importantly, new content!

The biggest additions are the new essence generation and faith mechanics. Now, you no longer fuel your Essence Collectors with crylithium. Rather, you now build a new building called an Essence Altar and assign new workers called Occultists to them. These new Occultists will go to the altar and pray, upon completing a pray action, they will boost faith in the area and generate essence that can be delivered to an Essence Collector, effectively replacing the fueling mechanics that were removed with a method the player can more directly control by building additional altars and assigning more Occultists.

The faith itself is a new system that bleeds over into many aspects of the game. Now villagers will gain and lose faith in you based on your or the world's actions. As their faith increases, you'll gain additional max influence to your influence bar, and they will be less likely to be confused or panic when they see you do anything.

As with most of Rise to Ruins' patches, there's way too much to cover in a summary, so check out the changelogs and enjoy!

If you find a bug, you can report it on the Steam Bugs Forums or Discord!

Update 2 Unstable 1 Change Log

Faith System

    Villagers now gain and lose a new need, called faith, based on your and the world's actions. Anything they deem positive, they'll gain faith, negative, they lose it.
    Villagers are now less likely to panic or be confused when they have high faith and witness god doing things in the village.
    All spells now influence faith stats in some way or another when cast near villagers.
    New Building: The Essence Altar. Villagers can now be assigned as "Occultists", who will go to the altar and pray. Completing a pray action will increase the villager's faith and the villagers around them, as well as generate free essence that will be sent to an Essence Collector.
    New perks added for praying speeds.
    Lightning and Meteor (all kinds, including the spells) will now raise or lower faith depending on where it strikes, and what it hits.
    Villagers will now sometimes get a boost in faith when chatting with someone with significantly higher faith than they have.
    Villagers now gain 10 faith when they domesticate a wild doggo or take a mate.
    Villagers now gain faith when they mate, and villagers nearby gain a very small amount.
    Nearby villagers gain faith when they witness a monster killed.
    Nearby villagers lose faith when they witness another villager killed.
    Nearby villagers get a bonus to faith when they witness an elder die of natural causes. (Living a "full life")
    Villagers now conceive Nephilim children if their combined total faith is within 90% of their maximum faith.
    Lightning rods can increase faith when a lightning bolt hits them.
    A mob resurrected from the Resurrect spell get maximum faith instantly upon resurrection.


Influence System

    Completely rewrote how max influence is calculated, each villager now provides a minimum and maximum amount, depending on the type of villager they are. Children offer less, while elders offer more, and Nephilims offer additional bonuses.
    All domesticated animals other than Doggos now provide 5 max influence each.
    Doggos now provide 20 max influence each.
    Doofy Doggos now provide 50 max influence each.
    The amount of total influence to the max influence bar each mob provides is now based on their faith. For example, if their faith is only 50% full, they will only provide 50% of their potential maximum influence. (Note: This only counts for mobs with faith stats, like villagers. Doggos for example, will always provide max faith as they have no faith stats.)
    New perks added for minimum influence, influence per animal and influence per villager.



Essence and Essence Collector Changes

    Significantly increased the speed newly spawned "resting" essence becomes active.
    Greatly improved essence colors and trails.
    Essence Collectors can no longer be fueled with or store crylithium.
    Essence Collectors now hold much more energy.
    Recolored and tweaked the Essence Collector art.
    Essence Collectors construction requirements have been increased, and now require crylithium for the first upgrade, and iron ingots for the second.



Spell Changes

    Banish spell now only confuses friendly mobs in the area if it actually banishes something.
    Banish confusion is now triggered from around the mob that was teleported away, rather than where the spell was cast.
    Dispel God Structures and Dispel Golem now can cause villagers to be confused upon seeing it cast.
    Dispel God Structures no longer panics villagers when cast.
    "Confusion" area of effect of Cold Aura increased.
    Generate Essence now has 1/4th the confusion/panic range.
    Generate Essence now costs twice as much to cast, but generates twice as much essence per cast.
    Conjure Material spell can now panic or confuse villagers.
    God Tower and God Wall spells now cause villagers to be confused or panic when cast around them.
    Grab spell now positively influences faith when you grab resources, and negatively when you grab mobs.
    Grab spell now no longer makes villagers panic when you grab resources (Note: Still will for grabbing mobs)
    Grab spell's panic/confusion range doubled.
    Harvest Spell can now cause villagers to panic if a resource is spawned right next to them.
    Harvest Spell's panic and confusion is now based on the location the resource spawned, rather than where the spell was cast.
    Holy Potatoes and Holy Wood spells can now cause panic and confusion to nearby villagers.

    Poking a loot box "circle" will confuse villagers and slightly increase faith, regardless if anything is uncovered.
    Moving a loot box will cause confusion at both locations, negative faith in the departing location and positive in the arrival location.
    Loot boxes being opened now positively influence faith (even when they're trashy!)
    Loot boxes idle in the village will sometimes confuse a villager.

    Fixed a bug where building's art wouldn't update when essence was sent from it.
    Lightning Rod no longer incorrectly reports it requires a rain catcher, purifier or well.
    Nephilim children now properly spawn a child Nephilim ghost when they die, rather than an adult Nephilim ghost.

Build Update 2 Unstable 2 Released
Tue, 26 April 2022


Just like Unstable 1, this patch adds a ton bug fixes and improvements, but most importantly, new content!

Some of the highlights of this patch are the new upgradable doggo houses, further enhancements to the new faith system, tons and tons of new animations, the resource rate calculator, additional resource bar configurations, a new spell/disaster (a comet!), really high quality new font rendering, and a ton of bug fixes and other QoL changes.

If you find a bug, you can report it on the Steam Bugs Forums or Discord!

"Needs" thought bubbles added, rather than seeing occasional floating icons when a villager has a dire need (starving, homeless, sleepy) there is now a thought bubble that follows around the villager.

Armor and helmets now take damage when struck.
Dying mobs that get healed, or regenerate a hit point right at the exact moment of death no longer display a health bar when decaying.
Tweaked the god XP tally sound effects slightly, and implemented a possible fix to the "endless sound effects" bug that rarely occurs.
Fixed the very tiny freebie XP gains for "Villager Leveling Up" that the player would get every time the world map is reloaded.

Build Update 2 Unstable 4 Released
Wed, 23 August 2023



*Brushes dust off podium*

Hello? *tap tap*

Is this thing on? Hello?
*clears throat*

Ahem.. anyway..

Rise to Ruins Update 2 Unstable 4 has finally arrived, is content complete, and brings in the brand news goals system! Once Update 2 is out of testing, the new goals system will link up with Steam, adding one of the most requested features in Rise to Ruins history; 🎉Steam Achievements!🎉

This patch has obviously been a long time coming, and I'm hoping after a bit of play testing, I can get the full Rise to Ruins Update 2 out the door, activate the achievements in Steam and start work on Update 3.

I am looking for plenty of feedback on the goals and achievement system, the balance, and ideas for more. Feel free to spam me anywhere that works for you with your ideas, and they may very well become official Steam achievements!

I have also started streaming game development of Rise to Ruins, Rise to Ruins 2 (yes it's true!), and Rayvo2D, my new engine. If you're interested in following development more closely, you're welcome to either join the discord or follow me on Twitch.

If you find a bug, you can report it on the Steam Bugs Forums or Discord!

Update 2 Unstable 4 Change Log

Goals and Achievements System

    Old goal system has been removed from the game entirely.
    New goals system now has 117 goals (more may be added, post your ideas!).
    Once Update 2 is fully released, each goal will unlock a Steam Achievement. (Note: I will try my best to get your test saves to unlock them retroactively, after Update 2 is released.)
    Every goal is on a huge web map, and as you unlock goals, more goals will become available.
    Like the previous goals system, all goals and their progress persist through dooming the world.
    Goals can now be accessed in when in the play state (Playing in a region/map).
    Goals no longer award perks, but award a lot of God Experience.
    Free Chest Slots can be unlocked, awarding, you guess it, a free chest!
    Chests are now gained 25% faster to offset the goals no longer rewarding perks directly.



Miscellaneous Changes

    Added pale Blue trees, stumps and dead trees, white snow, teal grass and mushrooms to the game for future biome plans. They can currently be accessed in the map editor.
    Improved the map selection overlays in the world map.
    Halved the chance villagers and animals can be turned into a zombie after dying with blight.
    The Perk list now extends to the top and bottom of the screen.
    You can now use the scroll wheel on the perk list.

    Added new particle effects to highlighted or selected buttons.
    Re-centered console panel.
    Cluckers can now do a rooster call at dawn.
    Medkits "+" symbol is now magenta-purple to avoid lawyers with too much time on their hands going after innocent developers for war crimes, or something.
    Reduced doggo bark frequency.
    Added a diminishing returns to all idle sound effects. The more of that type of mob in the area, the less each of them will make idle sound effects.
    Reduced the volume of the doggo barks.



Bug Fixes

    Added tooltip on settings menu in the play state informing the player they need to exit to the main menu to change hotkeys.

Introducing the largest update patch ever in Rise to Ruins history. Update 2, the Achievement Update.


This patch adds a massive amount of new content, bug fixes, tweaks and over 100 Steam Achievements tied into a brand new goals system.

I've also started live streaming development on Twitch, if you're interested, you can follow me there. I'll mostly be streaming Rise to Ruins, Rise to Ruins 2 (Yes you just read that) and Rayvo2D Engine development. But I may also occasionally Stream gaming and other random things.

Alright, let's get into this! If you have any ideas on new achievements to add, or tweaks to existing ones, let me know!


Update 2 Change Log

Goals and Achievements System

    Old goal system has been removed from the game entirely.
    New goals system now has 117 goals (more may be added, post your ideas!).
    Each goal unlocks a corresponding Steam Achievement.
    Every goal is on a huge web map, and as you unlock goals, more goals will become available.
    Like the previous goals system, all goals and their progress persist through dooming the world.
    Goals can now be accessed in when in the play state (Playing in a region/map).
    Goals no longer award perks, but award a lot of God Experience.
    Free Chest Slots can be unlocked, awarding, you guess it, a free chest!
    Chests are now gained 25% faster to offset the goals no longer rewarding perks directly.



Faith and Influence System

    Villagers now gain and lose a new need, called faith, based on your and the world's actions. Anything they deem positive, they'll gain faith, negative, they lose it.
    Villagers are now less likely to panic or be confused when they have high faith and witness god doing things in the village.
    All spells now influence faith stats in some way or another when cast near villagers.
    New Building: The Essence Altar. Villagers can now be assigned as "Occultists", who will go to the altar and pray. Completing a pray action will increase the villager's faith and the villagers around them, as well as generate free essence that will be sent to an Essence Collector.
    New perks added for praying speeds.
    Lightning and Meteor (all kinds, including the spells) will now raise or lower faith depending on where it strikes, and what it hits.
    Villagers will now sometimes get a boost in faith when chatting with someone with significantly higher faith than they have.

    A mob resurrected from the Resurrect spell get maximum faith instantly upon resurrection.
    Completely rewrote how max influence is calculated, each villager now provides a minimum and maximum amount, depending on the type of villager they are. Children offer less, while elders offer more, and Nephilims offer additional bonuses.
    All domesticated animals other than Doggos now provide 5 max influence each.
    Doggos now provide 20 max influence each.
    Doofy Doggos now provide 50 max influence each.
    The amount of total influence to the max influence bar each mob provides is now based on their faith. For example, if their faith is only 50% full, they will only provide 50% of their potential maximum influence. (Note: This only counts for mobs with faith stats, like villagers. Doggos for example, will always provide max faith as they have no faith stats.)
    New perks added for minimum influence, influence per animal and influence per villager.

    Added all of the perks, job data and speed reductions for capturing souls where required.
    Ghost no longer wander to random buildings.
    Ghost now always try to hover around their vessel, or body.
    New Resource: Ghost Dust, can be freely sold to Catjeet Provisioners. Who knows what they want with it though.
    Ghosts not bound to a body or a vessel will eventually leave the map forever, when they do a ton of essence is released and they'll drop some ghost dust.

    Medkits "+" symbol is now magenta-purple to avoid lawyers with too much time on their hands going after innocent developers for war crimes, or something.
