Version 0.5.0-alphaLatestUp to date
  • Fixed bug that caused remote raft to not become visible.
  • Fixed bug that caused local raft and/or players to jitter while connected to remote raft.
  • Fixed exception in receiver patch.
  • Improved performance.

Rafts are now send asynchronously. There might be issues with enormous rafts where the asynchronous sending could create a delay before the remote raft becomes visible. I will balance this if necessary once player observations and reports come in.

Technical details: In earlier mod versions the entire raft was packed into a network message in a single frame. With huge rafts this would cause noticeable lag as that frame froze the entire game until it was done. Now each block of the raft is packed in a frame, and the method then yields, waiting for the next frame. For small and normal sized rafts (up to a few hundred blocks), this will result in the message being completed in a few seconds, however for enormous rafts the delay could become noticeably longer. After the first message the mod only sends deltas, so a delay is only there at the beginning of a connection. I want to observe real life data and player experience before deciding if it's worth to add logic that yields after a certain amount of time, and/or a certain number of blocks.

Version 0.4.2-alphaUp to date

Feature identical to previous release. Just bumped the version due to a typo on raftmodding.com ("beta" instead of "alpha" in the previous version)

Released on 2023-02-06

Version 0.4.1-betaUp to date
  • Improved detection of free ocean space for meetups
  • Fixed RaftMMO player counter only counting players who have their menu open.
  • Added dedicated status tab in RaftMMO menu that shows number of RaftMMO players and your current meetup status (e.g. shows if you are too close to an island to meet)
  • Reduced meetup cooldown periods to 30 seconds globally and 10 minutes per raft

Released on 2023-02-06

Version 0.4.0-alphaUp to date
  • The buoys are dead, long live the buoy!
  • Completely reworked how meeting other rafts works. There are no more random buoys spawning in the ocean.
  • You don't have to sail to a certain location to meet up. Instead, if there is enough space in the nearby ocean for a meetup, and another player is also able to meet, you will connect and a buoy will spawn to mark the meeting spot.
  • That means if you see a buoy, you are guaranteed another player, and if there are no other players, you won't see buoys.
  • Added a counter in the menu that shows how many people are currently playing with RaftMMO.
  • Added a global meeting cooldown of 1 minute, and a cooldown of 15 minutes per remote raft, to avoid running into the same remote raft again and again.
  • Improved how favorited rafts are prioritized.
  • Improved distance detection between islands and potential meetup points.
  • Fixed a rare NullReference exception in the receiver patch.
  • Small performance improvements.
