Top Known Issues


  • 💔 Could interfere with strategy or gameplay
  • 👍 Not-good, but playable
  • 🤷‍♀️ Might not even notice if you don’t do this very specific thing


  • 💔 Server Chat can break when moving from server-to-server (such as your housing plot to Kilima Village).


  • 💔 Our localization work is ongoing - you may notice some mismatch of dialogue, some areas of the game that are only available in English, and other errors in certain languages. We are actively working on getting these fixed ASAP and up to the quality bar we all expect in Palia.
    • 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!


  • 💔 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.


  • 👍 You may find it difficult to plant a seed. Please try standing fairly close to your plot, and face it directly.


  • 💔 There is performance “hitching” for some players. If you experience stuttering or glitching, please share the details of your experience, including where in the game it is happening, with Player Support.


  • 💔 Server sync is sending a “Friend is not currently on plot” error message when a fellow player accepts an invite. A workaround is for both players to visit their home plots, then add as friend.

Server Crash

  • 👍 After a crash, you might receive a message that says “You weren’t accepted into the server.” This should not prevent you from logging in successfully.
