It offers user-friendly features, supports various operational scenarios, and provides packages with high bandwidth/traffic. Moreover, Lighthouse integrates popular open-source software to improve usability.

Tencent plans to expand its cloud services for dedicated multiplayer servers to new regions, including Japan, the United States, and the Asia-Pacific region (South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand).

Pals Update: Bug Fixes and Improvements

Great news for Palworld players! A recent update has resolved a pesky bug introduced in the last patch. Previously, Pals obtained through breeding were stuck with negative passive skills, which players couldn’t breed out.

In Palworld, each collectible creature, known as Pals, comes with fixed passive skills. These can range from beneficial buffs like speed boosts to detrimental effects such as decreased attack and defense. Imagine having a Pal with permanent nerfs to its skills! Certain Pals, like the adorable Cattiva, always come with specific negative passives. For instance, all captured Cattivas have the ‘Coward’ trait, reducing their attack by 10 percent.

Breeding Pals was supposed to eliminate these fixed passives. However, a recent patch hindered this function. But fear not! Version v0.1.5.1 is now live on Steam, with Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One versions coming soon, resolving this issue.

The patch notes confirm fixes for various game crashes and the bug where breeding Pals always resulted in fixed passives. Additionally, other notable changes include addressing issues like the inability to open the innermost door of a random dungeon after defeating its boss and the problem with renaming Pals.

Developer Pocketpair also assured players that they’re actively working on resolving the auto-save issue on Xbox versions, which is expected to be fixed in an upcoming update.
