Worlds Adrift update makes ships stronger and the environment more dangerous
In many ways, Worlds Adrift is sailing into new territory for MMORPGs, as there aren’t a lot of games out there that let you customize and create your own airship for exploration. When next week’s Update 0.1.4 arrives, ship building will be more accessible with free-rotating parts.
The patch will also add the ability to temporarily make a ship immune to grappling hooks and craft other light sources than the torch. Stormwalls are going to be even more difficult than before to navigate, and the entire Badlands biome will be stripped of all fuel, making it even more dangerous to visit.
“The damage calculation formula from physics collisions has been revamped,” the team posted. “The ultimate goal is to make ships less fragile, and to reduce the fear in your crewmates’ eyes when a loose part slides around your ship interior. Chain reactions should happen less often now, but this is a work in progress, with a comprehensive damage system rehaul to come in future patches.”
