    Bug fixes... plural? Only one bug fix is listed.

    Hi guys, any word on any other bug fixes that you may not have mentioned? Please tell me, after waiting all this time for another update, that there are at least some fixes for things such as crashing and freezing? These, when they happen, are game-breaking and ruin the overall enjoyment of each particular play through. Like, OK, one example of crashing I have encountered is where the game will completely crash to dashboard on PS4 when travelling through those warp gate things that you go through towards the end game part of the story. After meeting the Sea King, literally the first warp game. I was OK going through it, but coming back to the Sea King area, it just completely crashed. It really made me sad, because this game is so, so good and really enjoyable.

    The Z-fighting (flickering) regression introduced in 1.08 has not been fixed. This is quite disappointing...

    To save bandwidth PS4 patches can be delivered as bytepatches. This is basically a small (relatively) file that only contains the changes between files. For instance if you have a 20GB file and change a 5MB graphic within it then the bytepatch will be only a 5MB download instead of a 20GB download again for one file.

    This helps to massively reduce download times and to save Sony a lot of bandwidth in update files. It is also good for people with slower internet connections as then the patches do not take as long to download.

    What happens when the PS4 is “copying update” is that it basically has to make a brand new copy of this 20GB file and apply the patches during the copy. After it has performed the patch to the file it then moves it back in place overwriting the original file with the new updated file.

    For large games with many files changed in patches this process can take a long time to copy the update and it is a CPU & storage i/o limited process. Upgrading the internal drive to a faster 7200RPM drive will help make this a little faster but due to what's involved in the process it will never be quick.

    I enjoyed playing Subnautica through the Game Preview program on Xbox One, and just started playing it again (after putting it aside for about a year I guess) just recently. A friend told me about this update (not realizing it was for PS4 lol) but we have PS4 as well, and I’ve been looking for a reason to dust it off xD I was excited to hear about the sale that was supposedly going on for Subnautica on the PlayStation store (I’m in the US) but when I checked last night & this morning, it’s not on sale. Am I not understanding the article correctly? I’m really confused about this, seems to state pretty clearly it should be on sale, but it’s not showing that it is.

    I have PS+ as well, but that doesn’t seem to matter, Subnautica is listed as full price on PlayStation store both when checking from my PS4 and also when I’m signed in through my account checking through the app. Guess I’ll check back later to see if there’s any updated info about the sale that doesn’t appear to be activated?

    Overall in terms of the experience on Xbox One the game’s been enjoyable, though I’m nowhere near finished with it yet. I like taking my time in games. Certainly I’ve had some bugs. Found out not to put beacons and such on dry land (they tend to get swallowed up). I’ve also had the saving process get stuck once, had to completely force quit, but this issue has been reported it seems. Anyway I’ll stop there as this isn’t the place for Xbox bugs anyway.

    Just hoping to get some clarification regarding this sale for PlayStation version as I’m not seeing it when I check.

    These updates are so insulting for endgame players. They are not treating the issue seriously. A shame to the way upper management is sweeping this all under the rug. Thank you Mario @madsauce for trying. Relying on console commands to navigate the glitches is not a fix... it helps to alleviate and navigate the pitfalls but was really hoping for some hard updates. There is nothing showing in the check ins anymore. Trello is dead... games is going on sale... looks to us like nothing more is coming...

    What is up with these XBox and PS4 updates? It has been a month since a PC update? The bladderfish bug (what you call scarcity) was in there since the last Seatruck update. The PC gamers are the ones that made you famous. How about catering them as well? :/
  • LinefordLineford Join Date: 2019-04-20 Member: 252453Members
    Yep... Very need PC update! Please.

    The Bladderfish problem that you are referring too has been an issue for us console players since it was released in December of last year (2018)... And it wasn't a scarcity... it was a complete absence of.....

    The seatruck update is not for Subnautica, it was for Below Zero....

    You are comparing an early access discounted release and waiting a month for an update to a full price completed console release that has waited over 4 months for a fix. not apples to apples....

    Optimize the performance.Many annoying terrain pop-ups and lag.
  • jefe2142jefe2142 Join Date: 2019-06-01 Member: 253178Members
    The terrain not loading and creatures getting stuck in my base ruined the game for me half way through. I want to finish the game, but seeing those issues and not seeing anymore fixes in sight just made me delete it forever. I can't support unsupported content.

    Subnautica PS4: Too much texture loading and performance problems!!!! Generally, the game is very difficult to play because of bugs. I hope u will solve this problem, otherwise it's impossible to play. I know it doesn't come from my PS4, it's the only game that make that.

    I just finished Subnautica on PS4. Definitely one of the best games I have ever played despite being glitchy and not very well optimised for PS4. Nonetheless, it was a thrilling experience that I will never forget. I hope you will continue to support PS4 players with bug fixes and patches. I'm really looking forward to Below Zero. Cheers!

    A unity upgrade is part of the patches they're working on, see the favro page for more.

    Haha 'Introduce some instability to your game' This game is as unstable AF without the dev console, I can only imagine the steaming pile of crap it would be if it became more unstable...

    Any chance for a 1.10? I finally got 1.09 to install, but there are still a bunch of problems. One of the moons is just gone from the sky, so when there is an eclipse it just looks like the sun turned off, the habitat wall textures look like strobe lights, the ground keeps dissapearing, and a bunch of wall mounted stuff just looks like they're floating in mid-air (both in the habitat and mostly on the Cyclops).

    I recently purchased Subnautica on PS4. After downloading it the update history shows 1.07 as the most recent update. How do I get version 1.09?
  • scott66scott66 Join Date: 2020-06-19 Member: 261973Members
    I'm sure no-one is paying attention to this, but I too have v1.07 on PS4 even though I've checked for an update many times and it always says I have the most recent, but apparently that isn't true as v1.09 is most current.

    I'm unable to save any progress and have wasted close to 20hrs on this. Like other posters have mentioned, why is new content being added when the base game needs massive stabilization and bug fixes?
