Alpha 15 - Wild Pigs, Rock Climbing Axe, Wall Decorations And More

Posted on March 18th, 2015 04:32 AM EST
The Forest Alpha 15 has been released on Steam with wild pigs, rock climbing axe, wall decorations, new art, buildable beds, better bow, buildable archery targets, and more.

We have a slightly smaller patch this week, as in the background we’ve also been getting The Forest up and running in Unity 5! 

Upgrading to Unity 5 will provide a massive visual and performance increase for everyone, We’re really excited for you guys to see how the world looks with the better deferred renderer, and improved lighting/shading. We’re planning on officially switching to unity 5 for this next upcoming patch (0.16) which will be out in 28 days! 

For this current patch we’ve introduced a new aggressive animal to the world (wild pig) along with some new buildings, improved bow and arrow, a first pass at wall decorations and numerous other fixes and improvements all listed below. 

Also, weapon upgrade saving now works! 


As always, please continue to post your bug reports and feedback in the Discussions area of the Community Hub
