The Forest ChangeLog 0.29 English

This is the official changelog of the newest The Forest version 0.29:

For this patch we’re introducing a more complex version of the player survival systems. Eat too much for too long? you’ll start to put on weight and stats such as athleticism will go down. Eat too little and exercise too much, strength will eventually begin to go down. It’s important now to keep an eye on how you are eating and your energy levels as they have more gameplay impact. These new stats are available in the new ‘Stat’ page of the survival book.
Also new to the survival book is the To Do list. The player character will write down notes for things that seem important to do as the game progresses, early on functioning as a mini tutorial – build a camp, find food, and later giving more focus to cave exploration

Gameplay balance has had an overhaul pass this patch. We’ve made skinny cannibals weaker, giving players more chance of surviving against them early on. We’ve added a stealth visibility icon whilst crouched to help players understand when visible to enemies, and also to make clear that hiding in a bush is a perfectly fine alternative to combat.

We’ve also tweaked how enemies find you in the world. Previously they would seem to always find you no matter what you did or where you hid. Now, there is a lower chance overall of them finding your base, however lit fires at night, or making lots of noise (such as chopping down trees) can alert enemies to your presence. If you’re finding swarms of enemies attacking your base – try putting out the fires or making less noise.
Additionally there’s some new art, some new plane audio during crash, and lots of other improvements, fixes and additions all listed below.
Although previous save games should all continue to work fine, we recommend starting a fresh game this patch release due to the balance changes made.
As always, please continue to post your bug reports and feedback in the Discussions area of the Community Hub
