Hello everyone!

One of the big additions in Barotrauma’s 1.0 update will be an overhaul of the faction system, complete with new missions, events, and more. Let’s take a look at all the different groups, one by one, starting with the Europa Coalition. Who are they and where did they come from?

A few decades before the events of Barotrauma, the Coalition started out as a trade agreement between two prominent settlements on Europa, with some help from private paramilitary groups. They expanded their reach rapidly and aggressively, seizing control of important trade routes and other settlements. This has led them to become the de facto Europan superpower, governing civil society, trade and manufacturing with an iron fist.

The Coalition strives to preserve humanity on Europa, and they work tirelessly to maintain som... Read more

Hello everyone!

One of the most long-awaited changes coming in our full release version will be an overhaul of the faction system and everything related to it: missions and events, reputation system, faction-specific perks and rewards… There’s a lot we want to write about, so we’re going to go over the upcoming faction overhaul in not one but three posts.

Hi! To be clear, we have drawn inspiration from mods that added something interesting which had not been a part of our own plans, such as the transparent diving suit visors we just added in the most recent update. We have also in a some cases incorporated actual code written by our players when it has been submitted to the Barotrauma project on a volunteer basis – cases like these are covered in our end-user licence agreement which you can also find and read on our GitHub if you like. Times like these, we certainly give a tip of the hat to the creator, sometimes in the changelog, sometimes the game credits, sometimes in private.

Things like explorable locations, however, have been an integral part of our plans for the game since the beginning, not something we took from anyone else. Whatever inspiration we draw from player creations, we always develop the game towards our own design, and the chance that something of this magnitude, made by someone else, would fit our pla...

It actually is a real song (or a chant):

Thresher originally refers to a submarine), but on Europa... "I know that's an Earth song but it's all too fitting for us!"

Game works now. I guess a mod needed a update. Thanks for the help anyways.

Could you let us know what kind of mods you're using regardless, so we could diagnose the issue and make sure it doesn't happen again?

Hmm, looks like something slipped past us when testing the patch. :/ Based on the error message, there seems to be some kind of an issue in how a mod defines fabrication recipes.

Would you mind posting a list of the mods you're using so we can try to diagnose this? Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience!
