Sandstorms, Server Wipes, Bug Fixes & More in New Q&A

Sandstorms, Server Wipes, Bug Fixes & More in New Q&A -

Funcom's Joel Bylos has taken a number of Conan Exiles community questions and provided answers to several via Reddit. Questions cover a wide variety of topics including when sandstorms might start dealing damage, bug fixes, silver acquisition, server wipes and more.

There is a new biome coming along that will will include a new weather system including the addition of how weather will affect temperature and more. 

On the topic of server wipes, Bylos took on a player's assertion that devs are "forcing their creative choices on players" and that they need to "start listening to the community". 

As for forcing our “creative” choices on players, let me be clear: We are making the game we have envisioned, and trying to incorporate player feedback and ideas. But we’re not making a “community consensus” game. We told people what we want the game to be, and what our goals are for the game.

Finally, it is easy to sit outside and say “listen to community”, but the community consist of a large amount of people who all want different things. PvP players want very different things to PvE players. Modders want a different focus again, as do RPers. Server Admins also want a bunch of features. We try to align with what we are doing, and do our very best to give people the things that they ask for.

Other nuggets:

  • more physique types coming
  • the team is working as efficiently as possible to get bugs fixed and is expanding
  • players will be able to add "custom stamps / text" to maps soon
  • some PvE things like agriculture and raising stock coming to official servers in time
