The time has come for the first real patch update for the game since Open Beta. Prior, our focus has been on several hotfixes to address some of the more immediate issues. Now, we are ready to start introducing some of the more regularly paced content, quality–of-life improvements, and bug fixes that we have planned. We intend to keep offering these patch updates at a cadence of once every two weeks. Read on below to see what we have in store for the very first one since going into Open Beta!
💡 Adjustments to overall game lighting to improve experience of eyestrain 🎮 Re-introduction of unofficial work-in-progress controller support 🦪 The return of unopened oysters 🏠 Fixed a flickering floorboard in the Medium Room add-on ⌨️ Fixed Y binding to open inventory instead of most recently opened P menu 💥 Included fixes for two crash incidents 📜 Updated menu UI to fix typos 🐈 Fixed an issue where Some players were able to equip a pet without owning it
As a reminder, we are aware of the merging housing plot issues and related missing items issues. This is being actively investigated, and we are still looking for more reports and information.
Prior to this patch, the main story would end just as you’ve chosen a Shepp. We’ve now added a new quest, “The Acceptance Ceremony”, for you to continue the journey! Please enjoy this special area and cutscene we’ve prepared as you are fully welcomed as a resident to Kilima Village. 💌
While exploring Palia, you may stumble upon items that trigger the start of a quest. They all have various start requirements, so see if you can find them all!
There is now a rare chance to obtain exclusive decor items as a reward from the Lucky Ball.
All Sunrise Set items you can get from Zeki's Wondrous Machine
Our goal is to better distribute things on the maps so it does not feel too overly concentrated in some areas, yet too sparse in others.
Bahari Bay Adjustments:
Did you know: In the window, you can rotate the furniture preview for a 360° view of the new look!
Spa Day Bundle (850 Palia Coins/Outfit, 1700 Palia Coins/Full Bundle) Includes:
Builder Bundle (1275 Palia Coins/Outfit, 2549 Palia Coins/Full Bundle) Includes:
Ruffled Redingote Bundle (850 Palia Coins/Outfit, 1700 Palia Coins/Full Bundle) Includes:
Update: The Ruffled Redingote outfit has been temporarily made unavailable in the store after reports of visual issues. It will be corrected in an upcoming hotfix and made available again.
Pets have arrived in Palia, ready to provide companionship by following you throughout your adventures! Our first pet will be the adorable Palcat — available as a bonus add-on with the purchase of Palia Coins. From left to right: Meet the Sandy Palcat, the Nocturnal Palcat, the Island Palcat, and the Snowy Palcat.
The addition of pets is something we wanted to have at the start of Beta, but needed a bit more time to add. Please think of this as our thank you to the players who have supported us thus far. 🙇
The Palcat comes in four options:
We are also making these bonuses retroactive for all players who have already made purchases prior to this update. It does not matter if the coins are still in your wallet or have already been spent - the Palcat is yours! You can summon or dismiss your Palcat through a dedicated Pets interface, found in the Collections button of the Player Menu on the top right (or accessed with the Y key). The Palcat has no gameplay effects, but it does make your photos look super cute.
To adopt your furry friend, click the new "pet" button in the inventory.
Disclaimer: The Community Team does its very best to collect all possible Known Issues into our wicker baskets; however, we may not always be able to capture every quirk you encounter.
Holy smokes! Our devs fixed over 150 known issues this patch cycle - that’s a LOT of bugs! 🐞 Here are some worth celebrating listed below.
Our localization work is ongoing - you may notice some mismatch of dialogue, some areas of the game that are only available in English, or small errors in certain languages. We aim to improve this with every update in the near future! Please note: Our Launcher uses the language settings of your computer, if supported. We will be adding ways to select a dedicated language for the Launcher in the future!
We continue our work to unblock quests due to early Beta progress reset issues.
Players are seeing items that are not theirs appear on their housing plot.
When selecting the button to gift an NPC, sometimes the menu will not pop up as expected. Instead, you will see a small menu showing only gold and renown. Relogging, or allowing a full Palian day to cycle, can fix this issue.
Disclaimer: These are only a select few issues of many we’re aware of! For troubleshooting on common issues, please visit: https://palia.info/psknown
💔 Could interfere with strategy or gameplay 👍 Not-good, but playable 🤷♀️ Might not even notice if you don’t do this very specific thing
👍 For the "Learning the Ropes" quest, Badruu & Reth prematurely mention that the player is now ready to speak to Kenli, when in fact you should be speaking to Reth or Badruu first, respectively. 👍 The text pop-up when collecting Found Items (such as the Century Egg), disappears after a very short time. This same pop-up information can be found in the quest log! 👍 In Private spaces, NPCs are not standing on their expected target points, which could result in you catching Zeki jumping on his bed. 👍 The camera function cannot be rebound from the "K" key. 👍 The Whisper Chat defaults to yourself after exiting a Party. 👍 Party members are being accidentally removed from Parties. After some time, a party member will be removed from the Party without any action from the Party Leader. The party member, leader or both will receive messages that the party member left or was kicked from the Party. You can immediately re-invite the member back into the party! 👍The Back interior wall grid of Main House is very light, and disappears at angles. 👍Interior wall grids are slightly misaligned, and overlap with attached housing add-ons. 🤷♀️ Boxes and sacks outside of Zeki's shop are missing collision. 🤷♀️ Players can climb an invisible pillar in the Pavel Mines. 🤷♀️ It is more difficult than intended to climb ivy, especially in the Bahari Bay lighthouse. 🤷♀️ We said “goodbye” to Jerry the Broom/Tassle, and “hello” to…A fishing rod floating beneath the Tavern.

🤷♀️ Players are unable to send messages in the Community channel if they rejoin after leaving.
👍 Periodically, finishing a cooking minigame will make the UI that appears over other stations disappear.
💔Players suddenly exiting the game (using Alt+F4 or crashing, for example), may still appear active and in a party despite no longer being online. 💔 Unfriending someone sends you an unexpected Friend Request. 💔 When a player blocks another player, the blocker is not removed from the blockee’s Social Panel Server section. 👍 Friend requests cannot be denied. 👍 When in the Lobby screen, the ESC key and O shortcuts to access the social panel does not bring up the settings menu or toggle the state of the social panel. 👍 Player’s list of “Offline” friends is not minimized or collapsed by default. 👍 When in the Lobby screen, the Friend Request notification does not appear when receiving a friend request. 👍 Players are allowed to send Community invitations, even if their Community is full. Remaining invites will not rescind when a Community reaches capacity, too. 👍 Clicking "Dismiss" when receiving a friend or party request will not dismiss the request. 👍 Your Party does not disband when there is one Party Member left after the Party Leader, or Member, leaves the game. 👍 Players do not receive a chat notification message when someone joins a party. 👍 Players do not receive a chat notification message when another player joins their neighborhood. 👍 Players who are in the same community OR in the same server, who send each other friend requests, may see location information (such as where one player is currently located in the world) in the social panel. 🤷♀️ Party invitations do not expire when a Party becomes full.
🤷♀️ There is some minor clipping from the environment through the furniture, such as grass and trees.
💔 Some insects, especially around Bahari Bay, can get stuck in the hills and are not able to be caught.
👍 Photo Mode’s recent photos and album menu buttons are behaving inconsistently. The “Back” button does not work, but the “Close” button will take you back. 👍 Party UI does not appear/disappear if a player takes a photo in-game before joining or leaving a party.
👍 Sound and music can cut out at unexpected times, such as leaving your housing plot. 👍 The “Emote Collection” button appears as a white box until it is clicked. 👍 Text in the “Report” and “Kudos” boxes is difficult to read. 👍 UI buttons animate correctly but do not respond when clicked on their edges. 👍 A visual issue where when playing with a smaller screen size, or in windowed mode, the clothing icons in the wardrobe display covers the “continue” button. 👍 Terrain and foliage pop in and out during Welcome To Palia Cinematic. 👍 There are a collection of visual errors where items or environments will “pop” in and out of view as you approach. 🤷♀️ The wrong title and description is displayed for certain small Community Activities. 🤷♀️ The Honey Lure animation does not loop properly. 🤷♀️ Jel’s clothing detail pops in and out when approaching him, or walking away from him.
👍 Stray gliders can be found scattered throughout the world. Sadly, this is not a new and unusual foragable. 👍 There are a collection of visual errors where items will “fade” in and out of view as you approach. 👍 There are areas where you might fall through the world, or get stuck in an unexpected corner. Typing /unstuck, or using the Return Home button on your map, will free you.
