Endnight Games has released the twelfth patch for Sons of the Forest, adding a new cave, a pick axe, the ability to mine Solafite, new buildables, and much more. The patch notes dive deep into the various new additions and bug fixes being implemented with this update, providing a more optimized experience.
Aside from the aforementioned additions, new inclusions in Sons of the Forest comprise 2 new findable book items that allow you to build new structures, a new upgrade system for weapons, aiming sensitivity options for ranged weapons, and hanging skeletons to some trees in the world. Additionally, new Virginia and Kelvin emotes have been implemented.
Patch 12 also brings some balance changes to Sons of the Forest. Creepies are now more resistant to bullets and have slightly higher overall health. Moreover, Puffies with high health will no longer get dismembered along with the implementation of a two-second hit react cooldown to lower the stun lock on them.
Beyond these tweaks, Fingers and Twins will now be more aggressive, the maximum late-game creepy count has been reduced by 20%, and the Spear’s melee stab damage has been brought down from 15 to 10. A wide variety of improvements have also been introduced in Sons of the Forest in the latest update. Players will now be able to hit animal heads with a golf putter.
In a similar fashion, Kelvin will now react to the presence of these heads. In addition, volumetric light from the sun and work lamps have received an enhancement along with improved lighting transitions, driftwood physics, and optimizations to characters and AI.

Player characters can also carry up to three turtle shells and will no longer slide when standing on ramps.

Several issues such as missing spittle in the entertainment bunker, small rock spawning discrepancies, Frank trying to attack himself in rare cases after lighting himself on fire, the player being in a broken state due to pressing “shift” while placing objects, and renderer rotation errors due to lifting beams have been ironed out.
