Jump to navigation Jump to search

Build 0.167 is an Open Beta Update (#3) that was released on August 29, 2023 for Palia.

Hello, Palians!

The sun is setting, and strings of lanterns flicker on with a warm glow. You can hear distant laughter, the crackle of fireworks, and the sizzle of food made with love. In Palia, that can only mean one thing โ€“ the Maji Market is in town!

Maji Market patch Aug 30, 2023.png

When youโ€™re not spending hours at the Maji Market, or relaxing with the new Sit emote, we invite you to visit our studioโ€™s first Reddit AMA, starting today, August 29th, from 6:00pm - 8:00pm PT. Weโ€™ll have developers from all across the studio answering questions provided by our community! Stop by the official Subreddit to check it out.

At A Glance

  • The Maji Market has arrived! ๐ŸŽŠ
  • New Emote: Crossed-Legged Sitting. ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ
  • More doorway options and a porch to add to your home! ๐Ÿšช
  • Improvements to the Premium Store, and New Outfits ๐Ÿชž



Build 0.167.2: Hotfix - September 7, 2023

Thank you for visiting the Maji Market and making the start of our first game event a success during open beta. We really appreciate your feedback and would like to share how weโ€™re addressing it.

Chapaa Chase Updates

  • More Chapaas now spawn at the beginning of the mini-game.
  • 50% more Chapaas now spawn per wave, and with 20% more frequency.
  • Increased the size of the spawn zones, and added more of them.
  • Added 1 additional Chapaa Chase ticket for every Chapaa rescued per each player actively chasing Chapaas during that session. So if a whole group captures 100 total Chapaas, each player who captures at least 1 will get 100 extra tickets.

Based on these changes, weโ€™re now able to catch around 300 Chapaas per night during each round.

Stamp Card Improvements

When in a party, we lowered the Chapaa Chasers Party and Chapaa Champions Party requirements so that more people can obtain the accomplishments.

Chapaa Chase Store Updates

Added a new Maji the Dragon (water themed) plushie to the Chapaa Chase ticket store.

Bug Fixes

(Update, 11:09am PT): Placing items on the Porch housing add-on no longer causes them to be moved somewhere else on the plot.

Some players noticed that when plushies were added to their housing plot; the color was different from the icon. We have fixed the colors so that they match.

We also received some feedback that it would be nice to add the correct names to the corresponding color version in the store to align with the Chapaas from the scavenger hunt.

During the Quest Icon.png Maji Market Mayhem quest, the Mochi Ice Cream Mochi Ice Cream that Reth Profile.png Reth gives to players to taste test gives the player renown instead of focus. This has now been updated to Focus.png 300 Focus. Our initial recipe for the Phoenix Firework was mistakenly crafting more than intended. Weโ€™ve adjusted the Phoenix Firework recipe to the following:

General Notes

We are listening to your feedback on the pricing of food, fireworks and decor in the night market stores and Chapaa Chase ticket booth, as well as your requests for buying items with tickets instead of gold. While we wonโ€™t be able to make changes to this seasonโ€™s game event, we are committed to finding a more suitable range of pricing and currency so that more people can enjoy.

Build 0.167.1: Hotfix - September 1, 2023

  • ๐Ÿฏ A fix to game crashes caused when using the Honey Lure
  • ๐ŸŽ Removed the seemingly random "chime" sound that plays throughout Kilima Village and Maji Market
  • ๐Ÿ”ช Improved clarity for some cooking subrecipes that included mentions of ingredients not in the game
  • ๐Ÿ›‹๏ธ Disabled "F to interact" prompts for certain dรฉcor items that were not actually functional

What's New


The Maji Market!๐ŸŽŠ

Come one, come all, to the Maji Market!

Maji Market Chapaa Ticket Sign.png

Starting today through September 26th, you can visit the Maji Market from 6:00pm - 3:00am Palia time. Every evening at the Kilima Village Fairgrounds, the Maji Market twinkles with the promise of food, fun, and friendship. Watch the fireworks, try the treats, and earn tickets at mini-games like the Chapaa Chase (only once per night after the fireworks show!). And all along the way youโ€™ll be filling out your stamp card to trade in for over 50 rewards and prizes, including dozens of new decor items.

Be sure to chat with all the NPC booth vendors โ€“ Theyโ€™ll be sure to send you chasing more than just chapaas!

You can read up on all the details of how the Maji Market works here โ€“ but the best way to get started is to jump in and see for yourself!

New Emote: Sitting ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ

After a long night of chasing chapaas at the Maji Market, you deserve a good โ€œsit.โ€ Access the new โ€œSitโ€ emote by typing โ€œ/sitโ€ in chat, or selecting it from the โ€˜Tโ€™ menu. If itโ€™s not in your Emote selection, you can switch it out by going to the โ€˜Pโ€™ menu and accessing the Collections tab.

Emotes Menu - Sit.png

This is not the final form of how sitting will work in Palia, but as our Narrative Lead, S6 Vega says, โ€œItโ€™s a sit in the right direction!โ€

New "Found Item" Quests

Even More Found Item Quests ๐Ÿ”

Weโ€™ve added 6 more Found Item Quests. See if you can find them all by exploring, fishing, mining, and foraging.

  • Note: As you uncover the Found Item quests, they will appear in the Discovery Quests section of the quest list.

New Decor Items ๐Ÿก

Doorways & Porch: Spruce up the homestead with some new doorway styles and a comfy little porch, found at the register in City Hall.

A new plushie: A certain fish plushie has now been added as a possible reward from Zeki's Wondrous Machine. Can you guess which one it is?

Gathering & Crafting Changes

In Bahari Bay, several adjustments have been made to the higher-tier Sernuks and Chapaas to make hunting here more rewarding for higher level hunters.

  • โฌ† Increased the amount of Hide dropped by Elder & Proudhorned Sernuks, and Fur dropped by Striped & Azure Chapaa
  • โฌ† Increased the drop chance and amount of Sernuk Meat Sernuk Meat for Elder & Proudhorned Sernuks, and Chapaa Meat Chapaa Meat dropped by Striped & Azure Chapaa
  • โฌ† Increased the drop rate and gold value for Antlers from Elder & Proudhorn Sernuks and Tails from Striped & Azure Chapaas
  • โฌ† Increased the amount of Elder Sernuks and Striped Chapaa appearing
  • โฌ‡ Decreased the amount of lower-tier Sernuks and Chapaa appearing
  • Insects now collect in stacks of 30 instead of 5 in your inventory slots.
    • (Note: Starred insects and non-starred insects are stacked separately.)
  • The recipe now requires 3 tomatoes, up from 2 tomatoes prior.
    • The production timer will be reduced from 42 minutes to now 30 minutes.

We want to thank player feedback and reports that helped us identify this data error, which was unintended. However, we also acknowledge this is an adjustment that may impact certain playstyles.


Players let us know that Jinaโ€™s Level 3 friendship questline hid too many secrets. So, weโ€™ve added a hint about where scholars โ€œwith a thirst for something moreโ€ might go. Try chatting with one of our helpful Galdurs!


We have done lots of optimizations to improve performance for our housing plot servers. Overall, the experience should feel smoother, but this is continuous work we will keep tackling!

Top Known Issues


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 are actively improving this with every update and will continue to do so! 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 are working with a new chat service to better support our growing player population! As we are still working to get this service up and running in Palia overall there may be some ongoing funky, fresh chat issues. We appreciate your patience and understanding! This might look like your Server or Community chats going quiet. If this happens, try sending a message in any Chat - This should help everything reload correctly!
