A post was split to a new topic: 2134 Incorrect Translations

I can’t get into my online mulitplayer save file today

Thank you for the anchor and sail change.


Are the custom islands going to be changeable after saving again on console with any future updates?


Mi scuso se scrivo in italiano , noi dopo l aggiornamento abbiamo seri problemi , tutte le cose sono nominate eazioni , alcuni oggetti non si possono usare e tutti i file di salvataggio sono danneggiati .

Cosa potrei fare ?


Translation added by Clare using Google Translate

I apologize if I write in Italian, after the update we have serious problems, all things are named and actions, some objects cannot be used and all the save files are damaged.

What could I do ?

Thank you

@Stellanoire - I’m sorry to hear you’re experiencing this issue with translations. The team are working to resolve this issue as soon as possible for those affected.

If you’re experiencing an issue within the game, please report as much info as possible in a new post in the Console Bug Reports section here: [Console] Bug Reports - Stranded Deep

@Cassiguy - If you’re still experiencing a problem accessing your save after restarting your console. Please submit a bug report via the link above with details of your experience and I’ll pass them onto the team for investigation.

@Gibson2895 - As far as I am aware there are not plans to re-adjust how the custom islands work due to the problems that can come from saves being overloaded by resource cycling.
I know you’re already shared your feedback alongside other users in the following thread which the team will consider, but if anyone else requires info about custom island changes, it can be found here: [Console] Update 2126 - Custom Island Changes

Hello, I’ve seen this posted a few times in the past but I’m still curious so I thought I might ask. I play on an xbox series x in single player only and I was wondering if there was any intention of increasing the maximum size limit of rafts? Currently, it’s 4x5 (or 5x4?) and to me it really limits the possibilities of moving around lots of stuff between isles. Quite often I see mentions of this limit being in place because of lag in multiplayer, but why apply it in single player? Personally, I’ve never noticed any lag in single player. If the issue is existing on older console versions or the xbox series s, would it be somehow possible to increase the raft size limit on the last gen consoles, especially the more performant xbox series x?

I’m asking because I remember that this was the cause of why I stopped playing the game months ago when I was following a youtube guide on some awesome boat designs and realized I was very limited on what I could actually do on console. Really, never had lagging issues in single player on the xbox series x.

Could you guys please give this some thought or perhaps re-evaluate the need for this limit to be applied on both single player and multiplayer or even make it less strict on single player?

As a side note, are there any plans on adding fps boost to the game for xbox?

Thank you and sorry for the lengthy post :pray:

Absolutely love this game, best island survival game out there. I am just curious if you guys had any plans moving forward in 2024? Whether it’s still working on bugs? Or advancements in the game, more animals, graphics, bosses, items, objectives, etc?

Hi @JeunePadawan, sorry for the delay in responding to your message.

The sizes of the rafts were limited in a previous update (2104) to prevent some issues that could occur in the game (see quote from the 2104 release notes below). I do not know of any plans to readjust this, however I can pass your feedback onto the team regarding this.

While the team works on stability and issues that can affect fps in patches, I do not know of any dedicated fps boost plans for console.

I hope this information helps, even if it’s possibly not the answers you were hoping for.

Hi @Alpha, sorry for the delay in responding to your question.

The team have not released details of plans for 2024, however I do know they are continuing to investigate reports from players regarding bugs and issues they may experience in the game.

The team did confirm last year that Stranded Deep is considered feature complete and they had no further plans for features to be added to the game and that the focus would be on bug reports and Quality of Life updates. Should that change however, I imagine they will make an announcement in the announcements section about plans they have.

@Clare Just mentioning that you’ll pass on the feedback for the raft size limit is good enough for me. Thanks for taking the time to answer this!
