“We can’t wait to see all the beautiful gardens Palians will make with these flowers. And be sure to expect even more options in the future.” — S6 Nikhil

Flowers are grown in 2 stages, and will advance in their growth with (diligent) watering. They do not need to be planted in gardening soil, so plant them wherever your heart desires!

Every time you catch an insect in Kilima (not in Bahari), there will be a chance for it to drop a flower seed. Or, for those who are less insect-inclined, Auni will also be providing these seeds in his Guild Store. See if you can collect them all:

  • Gardenia Flower
  • Blue Hydrangea Flower
  • Rose Flower
  • Anemone Flower
  • Grimalkintail Flower
  • Tulip Flower
  • Chapaatail Flower
  • Lavender Flower
  • Forsythia Flower
  • Tiger Lily Flower

Additionally, tree seeds will work a little differently now. 🌲

Trees will now need to grow when planted. Seeds will still be dropped from chopped trees, and when planted on your plot they’ll start small. But planted trees will grow into their gorgeous adult sizes over time (and watering!)

Trees will have 4 growth stages, and can be chopped down at any time. We also have 4 different types of trees to collect:

  • Birch Tree
  • Oak Tree
  • Pine Tree
  • Juniper Tree

A new springtime furniture set, from your favorite Bard.

  • Spring Fever Short Lamp
  • Spring Fever Wheelbarrow

  • Spring Fever Wood Edging



What does he want? Does he come in peace?

Several improvements to climbing have been made. 🧗

Overall, it should feel better! We know a lot of folks have given feedback on this, and it’s been an ongoing project that we can finally say is now in the game. Of course, there is always room for improvement, so we welcome feedback and suggestions.

Additional Controller Support features have been added.

Patchnotes keybinds

  • Controller hotkeys can now be rebound!
  • Palia now has partial support for PlayStation DualShock and DualSense Controllers.
    • If you play on PC, you will need to redo any custom keybinds you may have had.

“More characterization! More handshum. :3c” - S6 Vega

We’ve also made improvements to the new player experience.

  • TLDR: New players won’t have to travel around as much as we’ve shifted key villagers around to be easier to get to while you’re finishing up those early quests.

The “Prove Your…” questline has gotten a few adjustments.

  • “Prove your Generosity” now requires only one (1) player request!
  • “Prove Your Devotion” now requires the tree grows to maturity.

Top Bug Fixes

Pattern Line 02_Short

⭐ The Biggest Fixes ⭐

  • Cross-region travel, aka the ability to play with your friends worldwide, is officially fixed! 🎉
  • We have, for sure for real this time, fixed the last of the “Silver-Winging It” quest bugs. The final gust of wind should now activate, allowing you to complete the quest.
  • We’ve finally, gently, prised our villagers to move along from your housing plots. Villagers should no longer hang out on your plots while refusing to speak with you.
  • Our beloved Bahari Green Cylinders, aka "Cyl-Chan", have scooted away. Perhaps their natural predators are Muujin?

Gameplay 🏃‍♀️

  • Fixed an issue where Guild Store icons weren’t properly appearing for villagers with stores.
  • We’ve talked to Tamala about being welcoming and a good host to her human friends, and her house should no longer cause crashes.

Quests 🔍

  • The reward for the “Fishing for Answers” quest can now be sold.

Social 💬

  • Fixed an issue where players could not unblock other players. Go ahead - mend those friendships. We won’t stop you (anymore.)
  • Fixed chat formatting issues that were occurring when players were writing in Spanish or Korean.

Housing 🏡

  • Fixed an issue where the H menu’s camera was zooming out waaay too much.
  • Fixed an issue where players could not save Housing Plot name changes.

Cosmetics 👗

  • Fixed a bug where players were not seeing their own character when trying on cosmetics in the Premium Store.
  • The Home Chef outfit had a thumbnail that didn’t look to be properly textured. This visual bug is fixed!

Visual, Audio, and Menus 👀

Top Known Issues

Emerging Known Issues as of 3/25

  • We are aware of an issue where, when accessing the Premium Store in languages other than English, our new cosmetics may not have their names displayed. They should be displayed in your wardrobe when purchased.
  • There are issues where suddenly your game may stop accepting your inputs. At this point, the game will need to be restarted.
    • If you see this issue, please submit a support ticket with your closest memory of your sequence of actions before you froze. Thank you so much!

⚠️ Achievement progress is not correctly persisting when accessing the same account on different machines, such as from PC to PC, or PC to Switch.

  • Rest assured: Your Achievements are still there, even if you can’t see them on a specific system.

⚠️ Players may see an error code “409” when adding friends to their friends list. This is due to players having more than 200 friends or pending friends. We’re working on adjusting this error to be more communicative.

⚠️Quality and SpeedGro Fertilizer do not boost garden crops, sometimes. It’s a little inconsistent when this appears, so make sure you’re submitting tickets if this happens to you!

⚠️ Face covers (such as masks) will continue to appear on your character when trying on other outfits.

⚠️ We are aware that there can be some missing input icons (or some wonky formatting) when navigating menus on a controller on PC. Our devs are hard at work clearing out these bugs.
