State of Decay Update 3 Details

State of Decay Update 3 Details

Fixes and improvements incoming

Written by Dread Reaver on 21 July 13 at 10:25

When Undead Labs announced the upcoming Sandbox DLC for their zombie survival title State of Decay, there was some community frustration that the existing issues with the game were not being addressed. The developers want to prove that this is not the case, as they have drafted up a list of the latest fixes and updates that will be arriving as part of Title Update 3:

• You can now ask a community NPC to follow you and watch your back.
• Outposts are now numbered on the map.
• NPCs who have been told to leave your community no longer remain in your Journal and take up bed space.
• Added Journal log entries for "Memento" mission.
• Added Journal log entry for establishing an Outpost.
• You can now train members of another Enclave in your Dojo immediately upon construction of the Dojo.
• Outpost bonuses to Stockpiles are now retained when the game is restarted.
• Changed AI to ensure zombies are present when you get a training mission or a morale mission.
• You can no longer move to a Home site that supports fewer Outposts than you currently control.
• Fixed an issue where Influence attrition wasn't scaling properly, which led to some Influence exploits.
• Fixed Snyder Warehouse not repairing vehicles.
• Fixed community NPCs sometimes blocking the door to Snyder Warehouse.
• You are now reminded every 15 minutes, starting at 30 minutes, that your progress is not being saved while in a mission.
• Fixed bug that allowed save spinner to sometimes display during missions.
• Removed references to generators in Fuel description.
• Jacob can no longer be selected for a "Mercy Shot" mission before he gives you the “Home Away from Home” mission.
• Fixed terrain issue that caused parked vehicles to catch on fire when restarting the game.
• Fixed getting “Stockpile maximum exceeded” Journal log entry immediately after leaving Mount Tanner.
• Vehicles are no longer teleported to Home parking spaces at 6:00 AM.
• Fixed issues that allowed community to exceed the population cap.
• Additional polish to "The Law" mission.
• Minor improvements to shadows.
• Fixed missing subtitles.
• Fixed floating bushes and grass.
• Fixed typos.
• Fixed issues in non-English translations.
As these are draft notes, they may change before the final patch is released to players. A specific release window for the patch has not yet been given, though it is expected in the reasonably near future.

The only issue I have had with this game is that no matter what I can't seem to get the Mercy Shot achievement I let my whole enclave get get gravely ill and had no medicine or infirmary and yet they all recovered xD

I played this game from start to finish with no problems other than framerate while driving and the odd zombie clipping through a fence/wall. It's am ambitious game and I'm glad to see they've made changes.

Item #1 would have increased my fun with the game tenfold. In the game I found myself purposefully taking OTHER missions to grab a teammate and then going to clean out infestations.

Are the lookouts still bugged? T_T

That's one of the reasons I haven't played this game in forever is that no one would man my lookout.

Very happy that you can bring someone with you anytime now though. Makes looting that much more fun. More space. ;p

Once the lookouts are patched I'll go back to playing the game I suppose.

Being able to take a companion with you now is going to be a GREAT feature. Especially in the upcoming dlc.

Reason I stopped playing was because on my second try and restarting the game because of story missions freezing and never appearing I just gave up.

I have enjoyed it, well worth 1600 IMO. It is good that they are still making changes too.

NPC's will be nice, if they don't completed glitch out somehow, which will sadly probably happen.

I mean I enjoy the game but some of the bugs are just so annoying to play with.
I have a fifth sense. It's like I have ESPN or something.

Yes. That was fixed with Title Update 2 and they are deadly.

Played the whole game with no noticeable glitches. Just once a backpack fell through the floor. Funny how some people get way more glitches then others. Maybe Im more forgiving if the game is good. And all in all this game was good

But that damn. I bought you a pony but shot it in the face was very annoying.

Why cant they just Fucking add co op/multiplayer????? Its what everyone wanted to begin with that they have yet to deliver even months after its release. Its one of the few reasons I wont play it again until its multiplayer. My other problem is there's no sleeping in the game so u usually have to stand around and wait out the night or risk being ripped to shreds by randomly spawning ferals. That's what happened to me and I rage quit, & started a new game. Haven't played much since then.
Y U NO HELP???

i don't know what everyone is whining about i enjoyed the game and the very few flaws that i encountered gave it character and made me laugh and i defy anyone to name a new release game that hasn't had an update/patch to fix a flaw or 2 within its 1st week of release!!
