Core Keeper: Dedicated Servers Now Available in Patch 0.3.12

Core Keeper Steam

Patch 0.3.12 for Core Keeper is now available. This update brings a new feature that allows players to create their own dedicated servers for multiplayer worlds. It also implements various quality-of-life changes and improvements.

According to developer Pugstorm, this patch lets players create their own dedicated servers accessible any time without requiring a host to be in the game. Those who do not like to create their own servers can join any player-hosted games. Moreover, networking issues that the community experienced before have been resolved because player-hosted games now use Steam’s networking backend when connecting people. 

Another noteworthy addition in Patch 0.3.12 for Core Keeper is the new digging damage stat to shovels. This stat impacts how many uses it takes for players to dig up the ground. Besides that, the health of the ground has been rebalanced to take the new digging damage stat into account. So, higher-tier shovels are more effective when used against lower-tier ground, and lower-tier shovels are less effective against higher-tier ground.
