The Colonists

I spent quite a bit of time with The Colonists before it launched on consoles earlier this week, and I found it to be a mostly enjoyable village management game (though it can be a little brutal at times).

Today, The Colonists was updated to version 1.01 on PS4. It’s not a substantial patch, but it fixes a few glaring issues, making this a cleaner experience overall. One of the things that caught my eye is that they fixed some control issues with boats. I don’t think this has anything to do with the specific boat problem I had (my problem was related to building the boats, not controlling them).

There are also some general improvements, which I hope cover the occasional supply-chain lockups that could bring your progress to its knees until you reset the game. I haven’t actually jumped back in since the patch went live, but I’m crossing my fingers and hoping this was addressed.

Anyway, if you want the full patch notes, they’re not huge. I’ve posted them all below.

  • Fixed vegetable patches not growing produce.
  • Fixed arrow smoke trails not extinguishing.
  • Fixed time control issues with boats.
  • Fixed issues with wrong font in Japanese.
  • Safe area improvements.
  • General bugfixes and performance improvements.
