    Found this one and solved it. Thanks for the report the fix will come with the next update

    Post Patch Bugs

    It looks like your frame rate drops drastically during combat. At very low frame rates damage hits will not register perfectly. I would have said this was something to do with your system not being up to spec but the game appears to run smoothly out of combat. Can you try dropping the graphics...

    Scrolling issues

    From my experience this is only a problem in windowed full screen but I will note it down and get Matt to take a look.

    Realistic Survival Mode And Other Things

    Certainly you could have the workers be responsible for feeding larvae, feeding the ants though could be hard. Currently the workers do jobs in the nest based on an array of jobs and an overall manager dishes them out (its actually a really complex piece of code). I suppose you could have...

    Game Gets Paused When in the Underground

    There was an optimisation we introduced ages ago but had to remove (which basically stopped animations you could not see) which sounds like what you describe. We did as I say remove it so I am not sure what is causing the problem here. Maybe try verifying your files on steam make sure something...

    Realistic Survival Mode And Other Things

    Hey thanks for your suggestions, I will go through them in order: Hunger was actually something I was considering in Freeplay but unfortunately ran out of time. I do agree it would be a really nice feature though how it would work would have to be considered carefully. I think ants feeding each...

    Game Gets Paused When in the Underground

    Could you record a video of this behaviour? I have tried to replicate it myself but I am getting nowhere. Additionally can you check you have the most recent build of the game (in the lab menu screen should say 0.1352 in bottom left). I have just released a patch today.

    Bug Fix Patch 0.1352 + Hotfix 0.1353

    In this patch we have hunted down a bug that is crashing the game on Queen of the Hill. We thought we had it solved in the last patch but people were still reporting it. Thanks to our great community we have finally found it and interestingly it was to do with the ramp and ants falling through...

    Game Gets Paused When in the Underground

    Is this all the time? And is it only the creatures on the surface? Additionally can you tell me what game mode and map you are playing when this happens?

    Screen Shot Saturday - Harvestman

    They do have an ability where it releases a leg and makes a run for it at low health.

    New Ants

    I agree it would be fun to include some of the other species as Freeplay colonies. Some would be relatively straight forward if you were no striving for realism (trap-jaws, army ants) however the slave makers behave quite differently to normal creatures in the stealing. Not really sure how it...

    BUG - Freeplay - Towhead - Fish vanish on flood

    Actually floods destroy food so this will have killed it. Will have a thing about this, maybe some food should be un-wash-away-able

    What were we up to in December?

    Thought I would mention briefly what we are up to at the moment. As we develop we send commits to the source control each with comments. These comments give some insight on what is being worked on. Having a look back over the Christmas holidays here is a summary of what has happened: John Made...

    Other games to avoid burnout

    They are billions is good but punishing. I enjoyed it for a good long time until I got fed up losing to a single zombie slipping in. It actually has similarities to EotU in the waves.

    Whats the Most Realistic Difficulty?

    Most mission are the start of an ant colony, so i guess the question is how many ant colonies die before they mate, then what is your win to loss ratio and see if you can make the two match up on a difficulty.
