Thought I would start this topic to post updates as they appear. Any with "(Beta)" shown next to them are updates that are not automatic (but will be after it comes out of beta). To get these you must opt-in to receiving them via Steam. For now, the server is set to NOT receive these, so it may be best that we all not opt-in to the betas so we all stay on the same version.

Alpha 6.3 Changes (Beta)

Changed all loot containers to have a greater chance to be empty
Changed cars to have more tool loot
Changed mailboxes to have more paper loot
Changed Less chance of finding backpacks in the wild loot
Changed length of IP field to allow longer URLs
Changed length of Port field to allow more room for IP field
Changed crops grow slower and no longer grow underground from torch lights

Bug Fixes
Fixed IP input breaking connection attempts after leaving a server
Fixed pasting IP from clipboard not registering

Known Issues

Players can sometimes get stuck in small vertical spaces less than 2 blocks high like on top of a cinder block or trash pile
Mac builds need to quit via the task manager
Rocket Launchers and Hunting Rifles cannot be broken down yet or crafted
Upgrading to Alpha 6 will sometimes cause players to lose key bindings go into options/controls/restore defaults and hit apply then close the game and start again to fix the problem

...notice the underlined one there Greg...looks like your idea will not work soon.

That's one idea. Alternatively, maybe look into building a small wall around them? Or work out how the traps work. I know you can build barbed wire - and those spike traps I built last night may be of use too.

Don't know if any of you are aware but they brought out a major patch for this the other day - including adding a vehicle and the like.

John has been playing a lot recently - clocked up quite a few hours. The patch requires you to restart the world/data and start from scratch. I laughed. John was not a happy bunny.
