Hello vikings!

First of all, we'd just like to thank everyone who has played the Ashlands update thus far, and we hope you're having a good time! That being said though, we have gotten a whole bunch of feedback already, and we have some tweaks for you today.

One of the main issues was that the new ship would get stuck against rocks and other surfaces, but with some material fixes it should be smooth sailing (hehe) from here on out. We have also solved an issue where portals wouldn't connect properly, as well an issue where even your cooking station would catch fire, along with various other bugs.

Last, but absolutely not least, we have also hopefully solved the issue where you would be far too overwhelmed by enemies. As it was, the enemies were drawn to you whenever you stood near a tree that fell, or a tree that was taking damage from a fire caused by cinders. Now, enemies should only react to the sound of falling trees, and the sound from when you/enemies are damaging the environment, and not the fire from cinders.

Please do continue to report bugs and leave feedback!
