Maintenance Schedule

*Schedule is subject to change

Simulation Room Update

The Simulation Room will be updated. The size of the Simulation Room area will be expanded, and features such as monsters, combat mechanics, a day-night cycle, and more survival elements such as hunger and thirst will be added.
Each update is outlined below.

Simulation Room Area Expansion

The Simulation Room area will be expanded.
The expanded area will offer a greater survival experience.

Day/Night Cycle

It will now become night in the Simulation Room.
At night it will become extremely dark, requiring the use of items such as campfires and handheld torches to light the area.

Battling Monsters

Monsters will now inhabit the Simulation Room, which can be defeated to obtain food items and other materials.
Some of these monsters are dangerous, so pathfinders will require weapons and armor to face.

Survival Elements

Pathfinders will need to fill their stomachs and quench their thirst with food dropped by the animals and plants in the area.
When pathfinders are hungry or thirsty, their speed and stamina recharge will be hampered.

Thrown Items

Pathfinders will be able to wield many items as weapons by throwing them, which may have different effects depending on the item used – so give it a try!

“Observation” System

▲ProtectCube

By cutting trees, breaking rocks, gathering resources, and battling monsters, pathfinders will acquire “Observation Data.” This data is exchanged at the “ProtectCube” in the middle of the area.
In addition, by placing “Observation Beacons” pathfinders can expand the observation area and increase the amount of data they acquire.

▲Observation Beacon

Avatar Leveling and Unlocking Recipes

Pathfinders will level up in the Simulation Room, allowing them to craft more new items.
Recipes can be unlocked by exchanging recipe points gained from leveling.
*Pathfinders can level up through exp gained by activities such as gathering, defeating monsters, and crafting.

Avatar Outfits in the Simulation Room

It will now be possible for players to wear the avatar clothing items they purchase in the Simulation Room.
Outfits are only aesthetic and will not affect the player’s status.

Over 200 Items Including Equipment, Furniture, and Building Materials

Over 200 new items including equipment, furniture, structures, and new building materials such as stone and iron will be added.
Enjoy building whatever you want with these new items and materials.

Precautions
With the ver. 0.8.0 update, current Simulation Room data will be reset.
This will be a complete reset that includes gathered and crafted items, furniture, structures and other items.
The reset will also include the “HOLOEARTH Key Visual Acrylic Panel” and “Holoearth Rug” items that were temporarily released for the occasion of hololive SUPER EXPO 2024, which will no longer be available.

New Avatar Items and Customization Options

36 new avatar clothing items will be added to ALTERMODE, including earrings and other accessories, as well as cold shoulder tops and sweater vests.
