Satisfactory Update 7 Lets You Change Creature Behavior, Patch Notes Here

Satisfactory Update 7 Steam/Coffee Stain Studios

 

Satisfactory, the first-person factory-building game by Coffee Stain Studios, received a must-have patch yesterday. Update 7 brought new content, highly demanded features and more.

Players can now decide the behavior of creatures. Two new modes called Passive and Retaliating are introduced. In the former mode, creatures won’t attack the player in any case, whereas in the latter mode, creatures will only attack the player if they start the fight. The creature’s behavior can be changed via Advanced Gameplay Settings in the Escape Menu.

Sprinting functionality for Zipline has been added, and Awesome Shop now features the Conveyor Ceiling Attachment. The Build Effect has been reworked as well. You can read the highlights of the update below.

  • Lizard Doggos can now be named in the interact menu after they’ve been tamed

  • Ladder hologram now works with the “Build in One Click” setting
