Bugfixes and pastimes
Tue, 22 September 2020

Hello everyone!

We’ve now released a minor update to address issues in the New Frontiers update and to bring new downtime activities to Europan submariners – some purely optional fun and games to balance the darkness of the ocean (and to keep idle hands from messing with the boat’s wires unnecessarily), and perhaps to yield some moderate rewards, too.

For now, the new activities we’ve added are limited to gardening and cleaning, but if these prove a hit, there are more planned! So let us know what you think – are you enjoying the fruits of your labor? What activities would you most like to see added in the future?

Find a quick summary of the most important changes below and be sure to update your game to the latest version to be able to host and join multiplayer games. Scroll further down for the full changelog.

•   Gardening and cleaning. Bored? The plants need watering and the sub isn’t going to clean itself, so get to work!
•   New submarine, the heavy transportation ship R-29 designed by "Rav2n". At a long last, we’re ready to add the winner of the Big Rig design competition to the game!
•   Headset channel switching. Now you can dedicate different channels to different purposes.
•   Mudraptor overhaul – Europa’s meanest biped gets improved looks, added armor and new attack variations.
•   Fixed bots, upgrades and subs disappearing in the campaign after dying or quitting the round immediately after purchasing them.
•   Fixed a wide variety of networking errors, like “index out of bounds”, or “missing entity”.
•   Several other fixes and improvements; more details in the changelog below.

We wish you smooth sailing!


Changes and additions:
- Added gardening: four different growable plants that produce specialized fruits which can be crafted into different items, or just thrown about and splattered on the hulls of the sub.
- Added cleaning: decals are now persistent and water gradually dirties up the submarine's walls. The dirt and the decals can be cleaned with a special tool that can also be used to paint the walls.
- New submarine, the heavy transportation ship R-29. Original design by "Rav2n".
- Overhauled mudraptor: new sprites, more varied attacks and heavier armor.
- Option to change the channel on the headset, making it possible to do things like secret communication on another channel or devices that react to commands sent on a specific channel.
- Added a verification prompt when trying to handcuff yourself.
- The inventory of handcuffed players isn't hidden completely, just locked (with a tooltip that explains why it's locked). Hiding the inventory was confusing to many new players, and it was easy to mistake it for a bug.
- Added directional markers that show the locations of the interactable NPCs in outposts.
- User's helm skill affects engine output.
- The game is paused when the campaign map is open in the single player campaign.
- The campaign map is automatically closed if the submarine gets too far from the end of the level while the map is open in multiplayer.
- Clients are allowed to view the campaign map even if they don't have the permissions to select the destination or the mission.
- The docking confirmation prompt is only shown when attempting to redock to the outpost you just left from.
- Wrecks are now properly initialized when spawned with "spawnsub" console command.
- Readjusted the attacks for the Husk and the Humanhusk.
- Added the option to select the minimum number of players required on the server for traitors to become active to the server settings menu.
- Log when clients modify the properties of an item (e.g. light colors, signal component settings).
- Allow selling items as long as their condition is over 90%.
- ID cards can be sold (as long as they're not in the player's own ID card slot).
- Disallowed selling items in equipment slots.
- Added cancel button to the "reconnecting to server" message box.
- DockingPort, Turret and LightComponent toggle connections ignore 0 signals.
- Traitor victims get a message saying they were killed by a traitor.
- Stack chat message popups when the chatbox is hidden instead of just showing one at a time.
- Switches now have lights that indicate whether they're on or off.
- Added "fuel_out" output to reactors.
- Added "set_light" connection to turrets.
- Made stun gun darts craftable from any type of wire.
- Outpost generator uses the first module type defined in the outpost config as the 1st module instead of forcing it to "airlock" (making it possible for modders to create outposts with another type of entrance module).
- Mission rounds end automatically if there are more living players inside the outpost than outside it, even if the sub is not at the end of the level.
- Made togglehud command usable in the sub editor for nicer screenshots.
- Characters don't gain helm skill when the sub isn't moving. Prevents grinding the helm skill when the sub is docked or maintaining position.
- Improved the way solid obstacles reduce explosion damage. Non-broken doors and walls nullify the damage almost completely.
- Fabricator continues fabricating when transitioning to a new level while it's running.
- Hid movement orders from the contextual command interface when there are orders of another type available.
- Made improvements to store interface tooltips. They now include the item name and should be displayed more consistently.
- Disabled automatic crew list sorting. The order now remains the same throughout the round.
- Added a second previous order icon to the crew list.
- Added character godmode, renamed mainsub godmode command to 'godmode_mainsub'.
- Increased sub editor auto save slots from one to 8 by default.
- Made logbooks sellable.
- Equipping a weapon activates it's reload time (capped to a maximum of 1 second), preventing bypassing the reload times by swapping between multiple weapons.
- Hide campaign NPC icon when the NPC is dead or incapacitated.
- Bots now prioritize stunning melee weapons based on their damage if they run out of battery.
- Made antidotes cheaper and easier to fabricate.
- Location reputations are shown when overing the cursor over a location in the campaign map screen.

Modding improvements and fixes:
- The order of all installed mods (not just the enabled ones) is now saved into the config file.
- Workshop mods can now be downloaded and installed automatically before joining a modded server.
- Disabled the Executable content type due to issues with cross-platform support.
- Fixed Unsubscribe button sometimes failing to delete mod content.
- Fixed a crash when attempting to modify the currently selected core package when other core packages aren't available.
- Fixed a modding-related crash at startup.
- Increased the "SeverLimbsProbability" cap (for items) from 1 to 10. The value is multiplied together with the joint setting "SeveranceProbabilityModifier", and limiting the value to 1 makes it impossible to boost the probability of some weapons/attacks.
- Fixed negative rotation speeds not working on decorative sprites.
- Fixed ItemPrefabs loading after AfflictionPrefabs.
- Previous enabled mods are restored when leaving a server.
- Added support for "periodic effects" (effects that execute every x seconds) to Afflictions. See the new "nausea" affliction for a usage example.

- Bots don't try to move while grabbed by a friendly character.
- Bots now detect and ignore leaks that other bots are targeting.
- Bots don't anymore try to decontain diving suits when the path to the cabinets is flooding.
- All crew members now try to keep the reactor running, unless the player orders someone to shut if down or turns it off manually.
- Bots shouldn't anymore try to operate items that other bots are targeting (previously they used to walk next to the device and only then continue).
- Removed the following autonomous objectives from medic and the security officer: fix leaks, repair systems, and pump water.
- Bots should now give a high priority on items that they are currently repairing, no matter if the decision to repair that item was made by them or the player controlling the character.
- Bots that operate/fix should now wait a few seconds before heading on their business (previously only in idle state). They are not allowed to wait in some circumstances, like when they are underwater or when there's a threat around.

- Fixed items that are added outside hulls not getting saved in the sub editor.
- Fixed "missing entity" errors in multiplayer if the respawn shuttle despawns after its walls have started leaking.

- Fixed bots rapidly turning left and right when they are positioned between a wall and another bot in the idle state.

Full steam ahead
Fri, 16 October 2020

Hello everyone!

Now that we've settled back into business as usual, it’s time to take a look ahead – and behind.

What's next?
Next up in Barotrauma's development is a Halloween update, a compactly sized content update. You should expect to see it pretty soon, and we'll write more about it once it's out!

After that, we plot a course toward...

The next major update
We've got one more big content update planned for this year, and it's going to include some highly wishlisted additions, including but not limited to the environment overhaul, ballast flora and new mission types. This update will round off the major developments we've made this year, with the Rusted Remnants and New Frontiers updates, to bring diversity, content, and a real sense of progression to Barotrauma. We're excited to be delivering this "part 3" content update before the year is out, and we hope you'll like it too!

Five years in development
Tomorrow marks five years since our first playable build. Back then, Barotrauma was a solo developer's hobby project with a different name, and if you'd like to see what that looked like for yourself, you can do that now on our blog . (We think you'll agree that we've come a long way since then, but you can probably still tell it's the same game!)

We're proud to be five already and happy to have so many of you following our progress – stay tuned for more news about the coming updates!

Halloween Update: Creepy Creature Feature
Thu, 29 October 2020

Happy Halloween, everyone!

To celebrate the spooky season, we’ve just released a game update and a DLC update for Barotrauma. Read on to find out more!

The Halloween update: Creepy Creature Feature

This update brings a selection of creepy creatures, with a few other additions and improvements. Here are the highlights, and you’ll find the full changelog at the end of this post.

•   Remade watcher, an old legacy creature born anew. While suitably spooky for Halloween, this one is a permanent addition. Avoid eye contact!
•   Pets. Did you already try your hand at the downtime activities that the previous update added? Taking care of your onboard pet is the next level of “things to keep you busy when it’s not too busy”. Enjoy!
•   As a temporary bonus, the pets come in Halloween costumes, and there is one pet that is Halloween-only. Can you guess which one?
•   Undo/redo for the submarine editor – for many, this is probably the real treat in the update, and we’re very happy to finally have this functionality!
•   Server browser profanity filter. Tired of bad words in server names? You can now choose not to see those servers at all, and customize your list of unwanted words.
•   AI gets new skills: bots can now be ordered to put items back into cabinets.
•   New lights and animations to indicate device states, such as when a pump or a fabricator is running.
•   Several new sounds and music tracks.

As always, be sure to update your game to the latest version to be able to host and join multiplayer servers!

DLC update: “The Europan” gets a new volume
The Barotrauma Supporter Pack has been updated: there is a brand new volume of “The Europan” newspaper now available! We’ve also updated the soundtrack included in the DLC, and there are a couple of new wallpapers too. Which one do you like best?

Official Halloween mod
For some extra Halloween textures, don’t forget the Trick or Trauma mod that we made for Halloween last year! It’s still available on Barotrauma’s Steam workshop and compatible with the most recent version of the game.

We wish you all a peaceful Hallowtide!

- Bots should now be slightly smarter when putting off fires.
- Bots don't anymore retaliate if they are being shot while there is an enemy around.
- Fixed a number of cases where bots would get stuck or fail to fix a leak.
- Fixed bots with steering order targeting the shuttle nav terminal instead of the main nav terminal.
- Fixed NPCs getting aggroed by certain drugs (e.g. anaparalyzant).
- Fixed bots not prioritizing the wall mounts for containing the extinguishers.
- Fixed monsters targeting inner doors when they shouldn't.
- Fixed outpost guards attacking the player for defending themselves against the aggressors on the event "mediator".
- Fixed NPCs not reacting when the player is attacked.
- Fixed AI considering characters on the opposing combat mission team as friendly.
- Fixed some steering issues where bots would return to the last waypoint instead of continuing with their current path when they should.
- Test changing the assignment logic for maintenance/operate orders: if the player doesn't specify the target character, use the bot who already is following the same order. The intention is to make it easier to change the target item of the order. The draw back is that ordering multiple bots to man the turrets now requires an extra step: specify the target character.

Misc fixes:
- Fixed clients always getting the generic "could not connect" error message when connecting to a server fails, even if there's a specific reason to the connection failing (e.g. disallowed symbols in the player's name, mismatching content packages or game version).
- Fixed yet another cause for "missing entity" errors. Occasionally happened in monster missions when a monster happened to get assigned the same ID as an item in a player's inventory.
- Fixed clients spawning a respawn shuttle in non-campaign missions even if the server has disabled respawning, leading to "missing entity" errors.
- Fixed planters dropping removed seeds after a save is reloaded.
- Fixed plants not updating the health after being fully grown in multiplayer.
- Fixed decal syncing working unreliably in multiplayer.
- Fixed "level doesn't match" errors after leaving a shuttle/drone behind in the multiplayer campaign.
- Fixed painted/dirty walls going to full opacity when transitioning to a new level in the campaign.
- Fixed crashing when trying to render a light whose range is less than 1 pixel.
- Fixed crashing when using a repair tool causes an explosion (e.g. when killing a terminal cell with a plasma cutter).
- Mudraptor: Adjusted and fixed the animations.
- Fixed irrelevant damage modifiers (like bleeding) affecting the damageemitter's particles. In practice, this caused damagemodifiers with bleeding modifier 0 not spawn any particle effects when the limb was hit.
- Fixed extinguish fires not working with extinguish fire orders if the room has not enough oxygen.
- Fixed the user set state of the crew list not being respected; autohiding/showing shouldn't change the state set by the player.
- Fixed significant lag spikes at outposts with many NPCs. Caused by too frequent pathfinding calls, when an NPC can't find a path to the target.
- Fixed AIState.Protect throwing exceptions when an attacker has been removed.
- Fixed status effects targeting nearby characters/items failing to launch, unless they used the "Active" effect type.
- Fixed crashing when trying to crouch while swimming in the character editor.
- Fixed pause menu being togglable during level transitions, causing errors if quitting the game during a transition.
- Fixed wire disappearing from the character's inventory and from the walls when getting shocked from attaching the 2nd end of a wire in multiplayer.
- Kastrull: Fixed the airlock waypoints not being linked to the doors, causing the bots not being able to operate them.
- Fixed airlock warning light in Kastrull not turning off when the airlock door is closed.
- Made plants non-combineable.
- Fixed random submarine selection setting for servers occasionally selecting non-submarines.
- Fixed dedicated servers still showing up as "playstyle-less" in the server browser.
- Fixed sounds defined in affliction status effects not working.
- Require at least 1 kick vote before kicking someone, no matter how low KickVoteRequiredRatio is set to.
- Fixed gaps being misplaced on certain wall structures, preventing certain walls from leaking in some subs (for example the wall above Typhon's junction compartment).
- Fixed "Select Matching Items" crashing in the editor when used with submarines with a linked submarine.
- Fixed hull above Kastrull's drone not being connected to the rest of the hulls, preventing oxygen from flowing between the drone and the sub when docked.
- Fixed junction boxes' signal connections passing power/load information.
- Fixed crash when trying to clone a linked sub that you don't have the submarine file for in the sub editor.
- Fixed incorrectly scaled items in the diving gear cabinet/locker assemblies.
- Fixed inability to sell faraday artifacts when the condition of the artifact is 0.
- Fixed monsters not fleeing if the attacker is a bot.
- Fixed OnImpact statuseffects not launching if the impact was negative (e.g. when a moving sub hits an item that's below the sub).
- OnDamaged status effects now launch only when there's any damage. Not when the damage is zero.
- Fixed health bar pulsating even when no damage is done by an attack/status effect.
- Fixed affliction probability not having any effect when used in status effects.
- Fixed event intensity going down immediately when the situation gets less intense instead of gradually returning to normal. Should make it happen less that more monsters are spawned soon after the player survives the previous wave of monsters.
- Fixed EventManager crashing if there are no event sets configured for the current location type (only affected mods that add new location types without adding any events for them).
- Fixed items held in the left hand being drawn in front of the characters.
- Fixed ability to drag and drop items into outpost reactors.
- Set terminal's maximum message length to match maximum chat message length (otherwise chat-linked terminals work differently in multiplayer).
- Fixed diving suit's low oxygen warning beep not following the player wearing the suit.
- Fixed "propaganda" and "clown outbreak" outpost events never triggering.
- Fixed "clown brutality" event getting stuck after the NPCs have been spawned.
- Fixed "impromptu engineering" event giving only one coilgun ammo box despite the text saying 2.
- Fixed "black market" event always giving the player the alien pistol.
- Fixed incendium bars exploding when pressing the Use key while holding one.
- Fixed outpost security not reacting to players throwing items that explode on impact (e.g. flash powder or nitroglycerin).
- Fixed outpost security reacting to raptor bane extract injections with lethal force.
- Fixed mantis' animation.
- Fixed multiple wire nodes occasionally getting placed with one click when rewiring.
- Fixed fire and water flow sounds staying active when returning from a multiplayer session to the main menu.
- Fixed previously discovered map tiles becoming undiscovered when saving and loading a campaign.
- Fixed 1st shot from SMG magazines spawned with console commands doing nothing.
- Fixed calyxanide not damaging huskified humans or crawlers.
- Fixed explosives exploding when combining them results in one being removed.
- Fixed items that don't flip horizontally being positioned incorrectly in mirrored subs.
- Fixed bots having difficulties in entering/exiting the airlocks.
- Fixed doors not obstructing waypoints after docking.
- Fixed occasional "velocity invalid" error messages when a character gets hit by a very fast projectile (e.g. coilgun bolt).

Sneak peek: The environment overhaul
Fri, 20 November 2020

Hello everyone!

The end of the year is getting closer, and so is our next update. It’s all about the world outside your submarine – from level generation to new environment art, many things are getting more variety and polish. Read a bit more below and check out this blog post on our website for more details!

Explore caves: This update adds caves that are too small to fit a submarine into, so you’ll have to go out for a swim to see what awaits inside. They come in many shapes and styles, and we’ll be adding even more in the future!

Navigate more complex maps: Level generation has been improved in many ways, and in the next update, you’ll see branching paths, obstacles that you’ll have to destroy or go around to reach your destination, and multiple possible paths through a level.

Discover new areas: The environment itself has been overhauled and now consists of five areas, or biomes, that are distinct in appearance, environmental hazards and enemies. From the icy Cold Caverns through the temperate Europan Ridge and the mushroom gardens of the Aphotic Plateau, be ready for the crushing depths of the Great Sea and the fiery views of the Hydrothermal Wastes! We’ll see you on the other side.

Related to these new environments, the update will add a couple of new mission types, and there will be new enemies as well. Find out more about those when we release the update – in the first half of December.
