Just now, DaedricAngel said:

All tamed Dinos have disappeared from my dedicated server,  all structuresare unopened, cutting hair into afro and mustache just made me bald....tek Armor is awesome.....but I now have to wipe my server since structures are messed up. "Giveallstructures" only gave owner of 1 thing in my case a railing.

When changing hairstyles it will always start bald and grow into it. The only time you cut it and it starts at the length you chose is when you just cut the style you currently have. A change of styles will always be a fresh cut.

Thanks for what you did get out  today wc... I for one have no idea what it takes to develop and release a game or content that won't cause bugs and crashes.. I understand that stuff happens and you can't always deliver.. Which happens in all aspects of life... Well to most people besides the previous posters... They have had everything go right all the time and always did what they said at all times... And don't forget they are experts at knowing the in and outs of the gaming development industry since they know that for no reason something can't go wrong.. Oh yea and we must constantly be kept in the loop at all times... (well that does suck but again I have no idea when you found out what was in the patch and what wasn't but they do, they are all knowing and all seeing )

Can we at least get some info on what happened to the Prim+ update? This was supposed to unbrick it. Can't use the lumber building pieces, bolas are broken..there were so many issues that this was supposed to address.

This is all I could find on that question.  Someone asked when it will be in, but no answer that I see yet.

Ok it says in the patch notes something about maximum difficulty and it has a box on my world with it unchecked what exactly does it do when checked 

It makes 150 dinos show up on the Island map.  At least that's what Jat said.

Any word on when we will be able to use the cameras? I just spent loads of materials on making one and there is no canvas to paint it on lol.

 

Patch related since the camera was added a couple updates ago...

Per-Pixel Painting in general for Billboards and Signs?

Canvases to use with the Camera?

Anything else?

The super secret feature everyone was excited for.

Tek boots one person said, I didn't bother checking though

probably some dinos as well.

The secret feature clearly was  ... not adding all the stuff that was meant to be there :).    But in all  seriousness.  At least the hair styles made it in. :) and the fuzzy wuzzy sheep.
