Sunkenland Public Test Branch Update V0.200 Full Patch Notes

Below are the full patch notes for the Sunkenland Public Test Branch Update V0.200: Developer’s note: This version does not include the dedicated servers feature. We still need more time for the implementation of dedicated servers, as we are currently facing some technical issues. However, it will be available soon.
  • Improved Game Balance: We are working on making the game smoother by rebalancing the overall progression. We've also clarified the technology stages and the materials needed to advance, preventing any unexpected leaps in technology.
  • Gun Assembly: We've introduced a new gun assembly system where you'll need to recycle broken guns to obtain components like barrels, magazines, and stocks, which you can then use to assemble new firearms. Please note that this feature is still experimental and will evolve in the future.
  • Improved Underwater Biomes: Explore the underwater world with more visually distinct biomes. Our new volcano region is an example, offering a unique visual experience and providing valuable materials like sulfur. This is the beginning of our efforts to enhance exploration and set the stage for future stories, lore, and puzzles.
  • New Items: Added a range of new items, including large scuba air tanks, fishing nets, batteries, gun display boards, portable repair tools, and even a bird-catching net.
  • New Building Structures: Added new structures like roofs, triangular walls, hall walls, diagonal walls, and more.
  • Updated Missions: We've added several missions, mostly focused on combat, to keep the action going.
  • Balanced Economy: We've revisited all prices and item stack sizes to ensure a fair and balanced in-game economy.
