Surviving Titan 0.7.2 is now live! This update includes rideable horses, sprinklers, improved interface, new cooking items and some balancing changes.
Here is a quick demo of the new and improved slot dragging system! You can now drag items directly into chests and other storage objects. And even between them!
Horses have also found their way onto Titan! These horses can be bred and ridden.. they are also a pretty good source of leather… but I didn’t suggest that!
There is also now a new way to gather rocks and ores too! It’s not a great weapon, but craft a drill at the synthesizer to mine rocks at a much faster speed than the pickaxe!

I am extremely happy to be pushing version 0.6.7 out into the world! This update brings several quality of life improvements, a new survivor, a new quest and several new items to craft as-well as an array of bug fix’s!
One of the most popular requests was an auto-sort feature for chests, in addition to increasing their size. I am happy to say this is now available for all storage in the game –
I have also streamlined the way that cooking recipes display! Now only recipes that require more than one base ingredient will display by default, anything else will require you to have them in your inventory to cook –
I am constantly looking out on the discussion boards and on twitter for new content you guys would like added and ways to improve the game. If you have any suggestions then please let me know!

I have been itching to post this update for a few days now, the last few weeks have been extremely productive with several new core features being added as-well as complete re-writes of existing mechanics. The games performance has been greatly improved by the re-write of the chunking mechanics, allowing much faster clearing and saving of resources in real-time so you never have to save the game.
This week I revisited the players status screen, from here you can view their skill levels, limb vitals and access their equipment and abilities screen. I think the layout still needs a little bit of work but displays just about everything it needs to –
At long last there are now breeding mechanics in the game, allowing certain animals to be farmed for their resources from the safety of your base –
Of-course this requires some way of getting the chickens to follow you, so I came up with ‘Leashing’. This is a rare item that you cannot craft but once you have it does not degrade –
Other work that has been taking place is in some of the lesser-explored biomes such as the snowlands and jungle. I have been adding some new discoveries to these biomes and adjusting their resources. Here is some sneak peaks –
Lastly for this month I have been testing out some new, higher-tier weapons and their effects. This is the crossbow, it fires multiple low-damage rounds very quickly and has a slight stun/knockback effect. Is it overpowered currently? YES! Does it look cool? I think so –
I have finally set up a discord! While I am not posting too much there right now I would love for some of you to register and chat. Shortly I will be testing newer versions of the game and discord members will be first to know -> https://discord.gg/rcxgECb
That is all for today, if you have any idea’s or suggestions for the game please message me!
