Lightyear Frontier patch makes some resources easier to see

by on April 15, 2024

Developer Frame Break has updated Lightyear Frontier to version 0.1.407.0 which has mostly made some resources easier to see.

A lot of the update revolves around bug fixes, which is to be expected for a game in early access, but there are some changes, as follows:

  • A message will now be displayed if the game fails to save
  • Increased angle threshold for Seed Shooter lock-ons
  • Added a glow effect on Coal-nodes to make them easier to see
  • Updated wild Weeds particle system for better visibility between tiers
  • Slightly increased the weight of Dried Glo Fruit.
  • Minor graphical tweaks
  • Updated Crobling material
  • Updated Small Meadow Trees material and LODs

This seems to be a fairly small update when it comes to changes, but there is sometimes some confusion with the visual identification of certain bits and bobs, so this fix should remove that as an issue.

Here’s the lengthy list of bug fixes, as well, with our video review inserted to break up the wall of text!
