Junk & Performance – Devblog 143

Short summary of what got changed/added:

  • Farming 1.5: If you have a green thumb, you can take care of your plants by placing them in a planter (2x growth speed) and give them light 24 hours a day via the ceiling light (2x growth speed), and if you pour fresh water into the planter you’ll notice the soil gets darker (temp effect). As the plants grow they will consume this water. Given enough water over its lifetime, the yield of the plant can double! Salt water, however, will completely dry them out.
  • Added purple loot crate which spawns at junk piles. It can contain hatchets, pickaxes, starter weapons, and some armor.
  • You’re more likely to find the purple loot crates near cars/trucks, the smaller junkpiles are more likely to have food and oil, and the machinery style ones are more likely to have tier2 components.
  • Ceiling lights: Increased brightness by 50%
  • Variuos performance improvements
