PocketPair the developers of Craftopia and PalWorld have pushed another update to Steam for the Craftopia Seamless World map for November. This update addresses a huge amount of bugs and includes very few content updates.
Some of the highlights for this update:
- Schools of fish are added
- Schools of fish can be caught using a casting net
- Sleeping Bag added
- Reduced the likelihood of Rain or Clouds
- UI improvements
This update was mainly to address the numerous bugs and issues with multiplayer. Hopefully, this will start us down the path of a more stable version of the Seamless World map.
Craftopia for Xbox Seamless World Update November 2023
Also, there was an announcement earlier this month about the Xbox Seamless World update. Here are the details they released on news of a Craftopia Xbox Seamless World progress.
Hello everyone, We know the Seamless update for Xbox has been a long time coming and some of you would like a status update. Firstly, we want to reassure you that development on the Xbox seamless update has not stopped. We have been working on it every single day. However, there are still performance and memory issues that we haven't been able to solve yet, particularly on Xbox One. This has proven to be a much bigger challenge than expected, which is the main reason for the delay. It also makes it hard for us to give you a release date. We plan to release Seamless on Xbox as soon as it ready but we would like you to know that that we have no intentions to abandon or discontinue updates for Xbox. We will keep you posted as soon as there is more info to share. Our apologies for the extended delay and thank you for continuing to support Craftopia.
This is sad news as they are delaying things because of the older consoles. I’ve suggested several times that the seamless world update needs to only be released on newer Series S/X consoles because I don’t think it will ever perform well on the older consoles.
