A new building is now available: the Courtyard.

PatchNotes179 6.png

We were so inspired by the community reaction to a very visible bug that appeared in Build 0.177, this was an opportunity we couldn’t pass up. There’s no limit to how many you can get, so why not build a whole army of Cyl?!

The new Ammo Pouch is now available. 🏹

It’s finally here! Arrows, Smoke Bombs, and Fishing Bait will now appear in this tab. You can access it from your Inventory.

  • When you first log in, any ammo in your inventory will move into the ammo pouch.
  • Any ammo that cannot fit into the ammo pouch will automatically transfer to your storage.

The Ammo Pouch starts with one row unlocked, and you can expand more at the General Store — just like the Backpack.

A Tailor Shop Changing Room has appeared in Bahari Bay!

Even adventuring shouldn’t stop you from looking fab. Just the little suitcase wouldn’t do for Jel, so he’s ordered a proper building in its place. (This service acts just like a wardrobe, and can be found by the Central Stables.)

Improvements & Adjustments

The amount of Friendship Points granted from various quests relating to Ashura, Zeki, Tish, and Reth have been balanced with the addition of Friendship Level 5 Quests.

⚠️We will be sending compensation to those who have completed Friendship Level 4 Quest as a result of this adjustment.

Criteria:

Compensation:

The Map will now show a coordinate grid.

This has been a long-requested feature, and should help out with group play alongside Flare Arrows. “Disco deer at B4!”

PatchNotes179 10.png

Temples will now have a dedicated map.

In an effort to help players navigate these special areas, you’ll be able to see a custom map in each space.

  • We specifically wanted to call out the Air Temple, which will also have icons for quest-related items.
  • ⚠️Note: While our Palian cartographer was able to create maps for the Temples of the Flames, Gales, and Roots, the one of the Temple of the Waves will be arriving with the next patch. 🙏

PatchNotes179 11.png

Brightness (Gamma) Settings are now available on PC. 🔆

PC Controllers can now access the Menu by pressing the Pause button.

  • ⚠️This can be rebound in the settings menu if you wish to change back to the previous default keybind (Inventory).

There is now an Unstuck button you can quickly access in menus.

Previously, the only option was to type it out in chat, which we knew was a challenge especially for Switch and controller users. This option should make it more accessible.

PatchNotes179 17.png

We’ve made several improvements to help optimize Palia on lower-spec PCs.

There’s a lot of small changes that come together, but overall it should feel nicer to play if you’re on lower settings.

Planted Trees in the Housing Plot have been visually updated to no longer have the “dirt mound” around the base.

Air Gusts in the Temple of the Gales have been improved to better carry the player.

Premium Store Updates

In case you missed it: you can now preview and purchase outfits straight from the Wardrobe.

We hope this addition makes it easier for folks to plan out outfits and pick out their best fit! ✨
