Alpha 4 released!
Fri, 5 March 2021



Three weeks ago we had Alpha 4 feature-complete and started testing it internally. It was tempting at the moment to give you an estimation on release date, but it would've been a big mistake. The testing showed so many issues and being able to thoroughly research all the new additions and make corrections without time pressure was priceless.

So here we are with Alpha 4 ready for your judgement. In short, there are 5 new buildings, introduced basic education, new ways of transporting resources, improved performance, private farming, storage capacity limits and a lot of other stuff.

Your old saves will load fine, but it is recommended to start a new game because of the number of new things that have a great impact on your local economy. Also older saves will not enjoy the same amount of performance improvements.

Alpha 4 patch 6
Tue, 28 September 2021



Got some more new stuff for you to check out.

Older saves are supported as usually, but it is not recommended to demolish buildings finished in previous versions.

The "citizens stuck" bug is a bit tricky. There have been some changes made that may help sorting that out, but it needs more testing in the wild. So looking forward to your feedback!

Added/changed:

    Lots of small performance optimizations

    New building: smeltery (for iron production)



    If a trading dock is blocked, trade boats will not arrive in it

    Can't build a trading dock now if trading route is obstructed by a dam

    Improved the look of paths created by traffic (might take an in-game year for new paths to establish in older saves)



    Slightly optimized construction

    Improved later game performance

    Workers will now be more selective on where to put resources from emptied buildings

    Added trade wagon sound

    Constructed building now shows the actual combined list of builders in properties

    Added seasonal hiring options for construction workers

    New building: big hay barrack (stores 7 times as a regular one)



    Can import more alcohol now

    Added help text for stable

    Trading wagons will wait a bit longer for workers

    Slightly reduced charcoal pile productivity

    People will now better distribute shopping responsibilities in family

    Increased cowshed and sheep farm storage capacity to 7000

    Slightly reduced yield of non-plowed fields

    Now keeping selection on source building when relocating animals

    Added a notification when a child is born

    Can now destroy resources loaded into the lime kiln

    Can now import iron ore

    Added two more levels of earlier autosaves

    Random messengers will now visit more often, especially as the town grows

    Now showing a year of planting for every crop icon in a field

    The current crop is always shown first in crop rotation sequence now

    Added bug reporting instructions to the main screen

    Slightly improved hire options UI

    Other minor UI changes



Fixed:

    Imported sheep were wrongfully sheared after delivery

    Clicking on builder's workplace didn't select the building correctly

    Fulling mill created navigation problems if demolished

    Potentially fixed some rare cases of multiple buildings on top of each other

    Constructed buildings didn't have any snow on them

    Could extract unlimited taxes from tavern owners

    Doors could float in the air after demolishing buildings

    Cart relocation sometimes didn't work properly for cart sheds

    Tents would stay forever if all carts are in a shed

    Deactivated fallow field didn't restore nutrients

    A newborn cow or sheep could be mistakenly taken for slaughter while moving herd to pasture

    Potentially fixed severe glitches on older AMD video cards (need confirmation)

    Adults applied to school while working

    Could build a fishing dock with entrance on the water

    Charcoal pile didn't have proper visual charcoal amount

    Fishing boats traveled too far in some cases

    Taverners could stuck in endless buying cycle

    It was possible to create unwanted reserves by using "Move resources" feature

    A worker could stuck in a clay pit if it's being demolished

    Could not demolish a cowshed in some cases

    Random crashes long after demolishing a mining camp

    Crash related to tavern

    Some fulling mills had distorted resources models while constructed

Alpha 4 patch 7
Tue, 14 December 2021



As we're working towards a huge future Alpha 5 release, a lot of time is spent there. But judging on previous feedback I thought it would be better to give you at least some smaller patches while you wait for a big one.

Here's what we've got for you so far:

Added/changed:

    Added 4 new tree types: maple, apple, apricot and cherry



    Garden-owning citizens will now be able to harvest their fruit trees

    Added a centralized help window accessible through a button near the minimap (content will be expanded later)

    Added help text for boatyard

    Added preventive repairs option to boatyard

    Added one more fence model



    Slightly reduced food consumption for children

    Added sounds for sheep

    New building: orchard



    Orchards can be customized during creation, just like houses with a garden

    Added a waterwheel sound

    Can now grow barley on farm fields (will have more uses later)



    Slightly better performance on huge towns with resource supply by laborers

    Draft animals will now die of old age

    Added a new map featuring an infinite limestone deposit

    Reduced camera speed when zoomed in

    A few more optimizations for big towns



Fixed:

    A rare crash when hovering building

    Cows and sheep could stop reproducing if only one worker hired

    Citizens didn't consume alcohol they bought

    Houses put "on hold" were counted as available in migration status

    Granary and warehouse workers could supply infinitely small amounts of resources

    An exploit that allowed instant construction - Експлойт, що дозволяв будувати миттєво

    Saltworks menu popup reported incorrect amounts of construction resources

    Saves with smeltery being constructed could get corrupted

    All map could become "inaccessible" after building a bridge

    A crash during tannery construction

    Crash after some taverner family members died of old age

Alpha 5 news
Thu, 24 November 2022



I know you're getting nervous when there's no news, but Ostriv is all about being chill and relaxed. Our goal has always been to make the best city building game possible, so that's what we do. That's what we do besides surviving a genocidal invasion.

Missile strikes, constant electricity blackouts and internet access problems are not exactly the best thing for business, but we've still managed to do some progress. Rowhouses are my personal favorite new feature, which also is one of the most labor-intensive to do organically and which pulls a lot of new requirements. I mean you can't have 3-storey buildings and not have cobblestone roads, right?

(nevermind the placeholder models)



Most of the new buildings are brick, so there's a new production chain dedicated to bricks. One of the raw materials for bricks is sand, so we need sand pits in addition to clay pits. This leads us to another feature which will determine where you have available clay and where you have sand.




Alpha 5 will also introduce health mechanics, so there's a lot of new requirements for simulation to handle sudden citizen's inability to go to work or die before their parents.




I'm sure you can't wait for all of it to be released, but so am I. Big update usually means more sales, which means more money, which means we can buy more stuff for those who defend our right to live and create. So it's in our best interest to deliver as soon as possible. Whenever that is.

Yevhen

Alpha 5 released!
Sat, 25 March 2023



Hi everyone! Yevhen here, reporting on our achievements through the last year.

Some may ask how come we can still pull out updates while our homes are being razed to the ground. One shouldn't think about how bad is the situation, but about what can be done to get the most out of it. And we still can get a lot.

Our work is a manifestation of our freedom and a huge middle finger to those toilet-stealing animals, who happened to be our neighbors. Our profits will be used to put a drip in the ocean of pain they're about to face here.


So let's get back to business. In short, there's a bunch of new buildings, a new slightly hilly map and a whole lot of quality-of-life improvements, just how you like it.

My personal favorite is rowhouses. They are not yet as meaningful as they would be in a finished game (basically they just provide high-density residences atm), also there's still no corner buildings, but you can already bend them into something cool-looking and organic to get that real 18th-century-town look. As a bonus you can have a shop on the 1st floor which can hold up to 8 slots of resources.

The update also introduces basic health mechanics. Each citizen now has a health metric which depends on food and environment (building charcoal piles near houses is not a good idea anymore). Also there are randomized illnesses (it currently kicks in when you reach 250 population). People will have a flu, a bone fracture or a bad tooth from time to time. The new barber surgery building may help them in that regard, but don't overestimate the 18th century medicine. You can learn more from in-game help, which is slowly expanding.

Ostriv - Patron of the Arts

A lot of people asked of the ways to support us outside of buying the game, so we made this little symbolic DLC which not only helps ensure the future of Ostriv, but also adds a nice decorative building:


Ostriv - Patron of the Arts


https://store.steampowered.com/app/2365430/Ostriv__Patron_of_the_Arts/

ABOUT THIS CONTENT
For those who want to show their support for the developers of Ostriv and become a "patron of the arts", we've created this DLC featuring a nice new baroque monument that will commemorate the awesome Ostriv community which has been extremely helpful throughout the years of development.

While the DLC is entirely optional and purely decorative, we're grateful to anyone who chooses to purchase it and contribute to the ongoing development of Ostriv
