[Console] Update 2107 Release Notes and Info

Hi everyone,

The latest update is rolling out today (2023/03/06) for PlayStation and Xbox. It may take some time for it to appear across all regions, but you’ll see the number 2107 in the bottom left of the main menu once your game is updated.

Below is a list of the quality-of-life fixes and changes contained within this update. Unless otherwise stated, the fixes and changes below will apply to pre-existing saves. You should not need to start a new save to see these fixes and changes.

As well as this, the next release candidate is already with QA for testing, and this contains some important fixes for scenarios where achievements may not unlock and adds improved player feedback if a game fails to save for any reason. The team is also prioritizing issues with accessing crates and we will keep you posted on our progress in the next ‘Update From The Team’.

Thank you to the community for continuing to report issues. The team is hard at work on the next update to address the remaining issues, so please continue to report issues you experience in the Console Bug Reports section. The information you’ve shared is always greatly appreciated by the team as they work to resolve these issues as quickly as possible!

Stay Alive!
:: Beam Team

Does the fix for placing small constructions on/in constructions mean we can now build things like looms and smokers etc inside building?

Or even a farm plot on a foundation?

Hi Lothaer,

You are correct. It is my understanding this applies to some craft stations as well as piles.

Crafted Items that can now be placed on foundations/floors should include: Shelter, Camp Fire, Fire Pit, Fire Spit, Hobo Stove, Meat Smoker, Loom, Plank Station, Furnace, Tanning Rack and Brick Station.

The water still and fuel boiler still cannot be placed on foundations / floors and I do not recall seeing mention of the farm plots for placing on foundations / floors either.

Thank you Clare I understand why water/fuel stills probably shouldn’t be placed indoors but I was hoping that farm plots could be place onto foundations to have then stay level when built

Any tips or solution ? Thx

Hi Vilink,

The Call Me Ahab trophy is one the achievements team are continuing to investigate and are looking into for the next update as mentioned in the update above. I will pass the info you shared above onto the team as I know they have been looking into progress in the crafting menu resetting also.

In the meantime can you confirm if you’re on a game generated island or one you made yourself and I will inform the team abot this also.

Im on my first game (game generated island)
may be off topic but I’m a QA analyst so if you ever need to do tests or give information to the developers to help them, don’t hesitate to contact me (even in private)

I played after latest update and found out "Increased ‘Meat’ inventory capacity from 4 to 8."didn’t happen in PS4 version.(The meat(smoked meat) still can stack 4 only in inventory).Or meat refer raw meat only?

Making the lanterns brighter was a pleasant surprise, was able to knock down and move some around. Very satisfied with this update, thank you!

Bummer!, not seeing “Fixed Deconstruction of Rafts” in the update… :slightly_frowning_face:
Tried anyway and it still fails with same error about something else being built upon it…
That in the next release canidate already in QA testing by any chance? =)

Thank you for all the other fixes! Keep up the hard work!

I also hope we can destroy rafts bases in next update. Otherwise, there are many abandoned raft bases or rafts floating on the sea as sea rubbish in game. (-_-)
