Patch 0.168 is coming in hot, hot, HOT! 🔥That’s the theme of this patch, and we are just so eager to share all the blazing new additions we’ll be adding to the game! We’ve also got some highly requested QoL changes and bug fixes. Read on ahead! 👇
🐕 Tau's Friendship Level 2 Quest, "A Hole Lotta Work", has been fixed. You are now able to repair the Garden Beds as expected.
🌶️ The Temple of the Flames Sear-Chef bundle has been updated. It no longer requires Stuffed Tomatoes, and instead requires Stuffed Phoenixfire Peppers.
🔥 Temple of the Flames bundles no longer complete prematurely when all other sub-bundles have 1 item completed.
🪑 Multicrafting at the Workbench now awards the correct amount of XP for all decor and furniture items crafted.
👛 A feature originally intended for Patch 0.169 has snuck its way in early - you can now purchase Palia Coins using Paypal!
We are continuing to look into:
♻️ Items that may have gone missing as a result of issues such as with the Hallway add-on will now return - they will appear right at the front of your housing plot, so please don’t be alarmed if you see a clutter of items suddenly appear there!
🎞️ We have tuned some graphics settings for better frame rate improvements.
💎 You can now properly collect the Flowstone located by the exit in the “Plumehound Pilgrimage
Privilege” Quest! Edit, September 15th: Incorrect Quest name listed.
👗 Players should no longer receive an error message indicating their clothing needs to be mended at login.
🪴 Grass should no longer peek through your gardening plots or other decor placed on the ground in your housing plot.
🔥 You should now be able to offer whole heatroot instead of chopped heatroot for the Fire Temple bundle.
🍳 The Cooking UI should no longer disappear while cooking.
🌽 We have doubled the amount of seeds that corn and spicy peppers give you, bringing them more in line with the other fruits and vegetable seed values.
We wanted to also call out a fix-that-turned-into-an-unintentional-buff:
🪑 Multicrafting will now award XP for every crafted item, however, multicrafting furniture you have never crafted before now gives too much XP.
This will be corrected in a future hotfix or full patch, but we wanted to be clear in advance that this is unintentional and we are aware of it.
We know these fixes do not address every issue players are seeing and we are still looking into a number of them, including but not limited to:
📣The Kitsuu are rare beings—not pets—whose presence must be respected. They are not used to human interaction and may run away when approached. (This PSA has been brought to you by Hassian.)
We know this was a very deserved update for the bestest boi. And if you need any more motivation, know that you get a big ol’ Tau plushie as a reward for completing his Level 4 Friendship.
In celebration of the Temple of the Flame being added, and inspired by Embra directly, this set features hues of orange and yellow, gold accents, and a design not unlike some of the ancient human ruins seen throughout Palia. Also flames, lots of flames. Did we mention fire?
Eight decor pieces have been added:
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 180 known issues this patch cycle - that’s a LOT of bugs! 🐞 Here are some worth celebrating listed below.
While we do not currently have a fix ready, we are looking into an alternative way to reimburse players. Please stay tuned!
Please avoid doing so, otherwise you will lose out on soil plots and not be able to garden!
Symptoms include: you can no longer add new crops to the plot; you can no longer pick it up; the plot itself becomes invisible, but still present; etc.
At the moment, the workaround for the “T-posing” issue is to simply relog into the game. Please avoid interacting with the wardrobe, otherwise your character will change with no way to adjust certain settings!
Having just one empty slot available in your inventory will allow you to move your house and housing add-ons.
Please note: There are no changes to your outfits or items. This message is also not intended for a future mending feature. It is an error message created for possible situations where there might be an issue with a clothing item that needs to be disabled.
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
The time it takes to cast out your fishing line has been increased, and the camera pan when reeling your fish in has been slowed.
💔 Multicrafting XP only applies to one item when crafting batches of furniture and decor.
This is not intended, and will be fixed in a future update.
💔 Framerate has been set to Unlimited by default in your settings.
💔 The “Collect the Flowstone near an exit” step in the quest “Plumehound Pilgrimage” is hard to complete as the item may not appear as expected.
👍 Upon login, you will receive an unexpected “Items Disabled” message.
👍 Some menus are not currently closing with the ESC button.
⚠️We are actively working on reports of server instability and lag.
We will continue to monitor our community chats and update our Patch Notes as more issues are identified.
Around The World
💔 For the “Welcome To Palia” quest, the Housing Plot teleport icon does not have a quest marker on the map, or the compass. You can find it just north of Chapaa Crossing:
💔 Climbing is not always a smooth experience, especially around Pulsewater Plains and Hideaway Bluffs in Bahari Bay, and an area near Leafhopper Hills in Kilima Village.
👍 Grass is growing through some objects on the housing plot, like aquariums and gardening plots.
🤷♀️ There is no error message pop-up if you accidentally type an incorrect prompt in chat (for example, “/w” instead of “w/” to whisper.)
👍 The Emoji Icon in the bottom right of the chat box is missing, but can still be clicked. Once clicked, all Emojis inside are invisible but can still be clicked. Once clicked, they too are invisible in the chat box.
👍 Pickled Corn and Pickled Spicy Pepper both have the description of Pickled Tomatoes.
🤷♀️ Leaving and Entering the Fire Temple too quickly can cause a failed zone transfer, resulting in a long period of a black screen. Please tread carefully!
👍 Bushes do not fall over after being chopped.
💔 SpeedyGro Fertilizer’s description is currently incorrect. It should instead state that it “adds one bonus day of growth per two regular days of growth.”
👍 Worm & Glow Worm farms are not currently not taking the bonus gold value of Star Quality items into account.
👍 SpeedyGro Fertilizer is currently selling for 10g. The sell cost should be 5g, matching Harvest Boost.
The above gardening errors will be resolved in a future patch. In addition to these future updates, players can also expect to see twice as much SpeedyGro fertilizer generated in their Glow Worm farms.
Housing & Decor
👍 Some items, such as the Dragon Wall Clock, are missing textures.
👍 The window above the main House entry doorway is not see-through from the exterior of the house, instead having just a gray texture applied over it.
🤷♀️ If players try to leave their Housing Plot before talking to Hodari during the early game tutorials, they appear to get stuck on an infinite loading stuck.
👍 Star quality items are no longer available to select to fulfill requests. This will prevent star quality items from being downgraded when your friend receives the item.
We will be making updates very soon to allow star quality items to be both sent and requested.
Quests & Villagers
💔 Villagers who share that they would like to receive Corn will not accept it as a gift.
👍 When completing the quest “Ancient Battery”, there is no text in the pop-up. There are no further steps you need to take!
👍 The Magistrate and Tau are missing from the Celebration Cinematic.
👍 Villagers and players float above ground in some areas in Maji Market.
👍 Ashura is teleporting from his morning workout routine straight to his fishing location at 10:15am Palia Time.
👍 After using the bow or smoke bomb, players can sometimes lock into the hunting pose.
👍 For the Maji Market, the Pop-up notification for completing a Game Event Stamp Card directs players to the Accomplishment tab to view more game event accomplishments; However, game event accomplishments are located in the Game Events tab, not the Accomplishment tab.
🤷♀️ When the number of items you have in a crafter gets too big, the UI is cut off.
Wardrobe & Premium Store
👍 Premium Store outfit thumbnails appear slightly greyed/muted in color until players hover over them
👍 When players are transitioned to the Wardrobe, or Dressing Room Menu, they see glimpses of a black screen with UI, terrain, and an empty wardrobe menu with ”No Matching Results”. It will return to the expected appearance shortly after.
👍 The Regal Ballroom Dress shows black and blue colors in the store - however, the actual item is the expected colors.
👍 Hair Dye Patterns do not display a pattern in the UI. The swatches appear as blank circles.
🤷♀️ It is more difficult than intended to climb ivy, especially in the Bahari Bay lighthouse.
🤷♀️ At the Daiya family farm, the front door frame is missing. It looks a little strange but we know about it and a fix is on the way!
👍 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.
🤷♀️ Players are unable to send messages in the Community channel if they rejoin after leaving.
👍 The Whisper Chat defaults to yourself after exiting a Party.
👍 Sometimes players can still send messages in Community chat after being kicked from the community.
💔 Cooking Sushi can result in players freezing at the prep station.
👍 Periodically, finishing a cooking minigame will make the UI that appears over other stations disappear.
👍 When fishing near Einar, players will have to cast out very far to avoid the dock despite the fishing indicator being blue.
💔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.
👍 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.
👍 Game Event accomplishments should be viewed under the Game Event Page tab of the menu, but the Stamp Card will direct players to look at the standard Accomplishments tab instead.
🤷♀️ There is some minor clipping from the environment through the furniture, such as grass and trees.
👍Interior wall grids are slightly misaligned, and overlap with attached housing add-ons.
👍 Players may not be able to pick up their main house portion if their inventory is full - even if they have space in storage.
👍 The camera function cannot be rebound from the "K" key.
👍 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.
👍 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.
👍 In Private spaces, NPCs are not standing on their expected target points, which could result in you catching Zeki jumping on his bed.
👍 The Focus tutorial does not pop up to guide new players through an explanation of their Focus bar.
👍 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.
👍 There are a handful of icons that do not match their item. This also applies to accomplishments rewards, like the Bug Catching accomplishments.
🤷♀️ The Honey Lure animation does not loop properly.
👍 When trying on clothes in the wardrobe, color swatches may appear “invisible.” You can still click on them and get the colors you want!
