First ‘State Of Decay’ Patch Available Now

SODpatch

Undead Labs’ zombie survival game State of Decay has only been out a couple weeks and it’s already broken records and received critical acclaim, including an Editor’s Choice from yours truly. It’s an incredibly addicting and often unforgiving post-apocalyptic arcade game that, unfortunately, was also riddled with technical issues. Thankfully, Undead Labs is addressing, and fixing, many of these issues in a patch. Full list of fixes after the jump.

NEW: Playable characters can no longer be killed by the simulation
Workshop now repairs weapons and vehicles at game dawn rather than the next real-world day.
Reduced cooldown times of commands in the Radio Menu, notably Words of Encouragement, Words of Inspiration, and Medical Advice.
NPCs no longer get stuck behind the counter or on the stairs at the gun shop in Spencer’s Mill.
The “Too many infestations!” event will now only occur when there are too many infestations within 500m of your Home, rather than anywhere in the world.
UPDATED: The “Too many infestations” to-do item is now cleared when there is only one remaining infestation within 500m of your Home, rather than anywhere in the world.
You must now be close to the ranger station for the Memento mission scene to play. Previously you would be teleported to the station if you left before the end of the mission.
Community members will properly interact with Facilities in your home. Previously they would stop after a period of time.
