    • Editor Note: explanation from Blobfish (via Discord):
    • Implementation has been tweaked a bit which makes them weaker:
    • Instead of stacking all damage when having multiple, each item's damage is tied to it's proc'ing probability
    • so when you have 3 baby elephants dealing 1 damage each, it used to always deal 3 damage when procing, but now it can deal 1, 2 or 3 damage)
    • Editor note: So they now behave more like Hunting Trophy.
  • Reworded "Chance for double materials" into "Double Material Chance"

  • Fixed a bug where Wisdom.png Wisdom would make the % Damage stat go up when hovering it in the level up screen.

  • Fixed a bug where enemy projectiles weren't being affected by the "Enemy Damage" accessibility option.
  • Fixed a bug where Anvil.png Anvil could upgrade Wildling's weapons past tier II.
    • Editor note: This has no effect on vanilla as Wildling can now use weapons above Tier II. But this bugfix may still be beneficial to mods
  • Fixed a bug where some effects were not applied correctly when going back to the weapon selection screen from the difficulty selection screen.
  • Fixed a bug where projectile spread was not getting properly deserialized from save files.
  • Fixed a bug where the ticks for the last 5 seconds of a wave were slightly desynchronized.

Modding Notes

  • An intro guide to modding & documentation will get linked on the Steam Workshop once it's done. Checkout the #modding-dev channel on the Discord server to stay updated about advancements.
    • Editor note: This guide is now available on Steam here
  • If you create a mod now you should still expect to have to update it when the base game gets updated, since a lot of changes/refactoring will likely be made to facilitate modding.
  • Modding Brotato currently requires coding skills, but we're looking into making it more accessible.
  • Thanks to all modders who have worked on creating tools or mods for the game! Special thanks to Darkly, Ste, Kana and otDan who have worked on ModLoader, the code used to support multiple mods in Brotato.
