Hey Survivors!

Here is a full list of the features/fixes coming the v742 update for The Center!  

It's been a while so this list doesn't include 100% of the fixes/features that were added but it includes I'd say 80-90% [some smaller fixes may have been missed] of what was done to the map since the last update!

-Increased the temperature of the grasslands slightly

While I am aware that you now work for wild card. They need to take notes on how well you wrote out these patch note's. From watching your streams and social media. I can hands down say that from a customer/gamer perspective, that you are the best asset that the wild card team has. The center is better then the island and scorched earth combined. Almost sad that a 1 man team can build a better map then a studio of people. Hats off to you good sir.

The update looks great except for the fact that I had a very impressive metal base with full behemoth Dino pens built below the cliff line on an official server and now I cant access half of it where my quetz's, rexes, and valuts are because of the update to the cliffs on snow north.  I've lost 100s of hours worth of building and taming. I'm very disappointed that regard wasn't given to where structures could have been built. What's worse is the half I can access can't be accessed again once I leave it unless I fast travel back to one of the beds. 

 

Devs...any solution please to get my Dino's buried in the cliff out???

Whistle follow all and pray? You should have probably moved your things man.

They're all locked in metal pens that I can no longer see or access. I can only see their names highlighted through the cliff. Ima try and whistle but had no idea that the devs would not consider areas where structures could have been built and developed around existing teraforms instead. The only reason I can access he current half of my base I think is because I have beds in there. 

This is worse than being wiped.

That really sucks, I have a problem from the update but nowhere near as bad.
As of the center update there's now a loading zone in the water right above the east underwater dome, which is where we built pillar towers with a huge base on it. Not only do I sometimes have my game freeze for several seconds while walking around my base, but I also can't place or replace any structures on the tower anymore. If I swim a few feet away the ocean zone loads and I can place structures on the side of the tower closest to it, but if I try to move around or inside my base it despawns the piece of land the pillars are on and stops me from placing structures.
