173.0

  • Spinosaurus! Fear the beast!
  • New Structures: Spike Wall (great for defending against incoming tribe dino attacks) and Food Preservation Bin items, and Beef Jerky!!! (Sparkpowder+Oil+Cooked Meat or Cooked Prime Meat+hour wait == SUPER LONG LASTING FOOOOOD!)
  • General GPU optimizations plus new graphics configuration options: Mesh LOD slider, High Quality Materials checkbox (disabling this and restarting will have tremendous perf savings at the cost of less detailed terrain materials), Subsurface Scattering Checkbox (disabling this will make plants and skin material look a little less good, but also save a lot of perf)
  • After login you now get a message indicating how you died if your character was killed when you were logged out (needs more details added)
  • Pteras now land better when out of stamina, won't eject you as soon
  • You and dinos can attack when no stamina now, however doing so will increase your torpidity

  • Unconscious dinos being tamed no longer can be harmed by non-tribe players in PvE
