Singularity 6 is back with a fresh Palia patch, and it’s ticking all the boxes for me. This patch completely juices up the gameplay with better character customization, improved mining features, and more house spacing.

Cozy gamers worldwide flocked to Palia when its early access opened its arms to embrace our desire to be cozy together. Since then, Singularity 6 has periodically rolled some much-needed updates and patches, Palia’s Patch 0.172 being the latest. Let’s uncover all the shiny things it’s got to offer.

New, Varied Customization Options

The moment you fire up Palia, it’s character creation time. But then, the instant you step into the Palia world, you will stumble upon a legion of doppelgängers mimicking your freshly minted character.

Despite an acceptable number of customization options, Patch 0172 added a buffet of new items. There are eight new skin tones16 fresh face options, and 14 extra eye colors. Plus, if you’re having a bad hair day (or year), choose from 11 new hairstyles, nine new facial hair options, and eight more hair colors. There are also three new glasses, which I’ll be wearing religiously to look stylish.

Mining Is Actually Fun Now?

Cake parties used to be everyone’s favorite money-making machine. With the recent nerf, my business was practically shown the exit door.

Thankfully, Singularity 6 has decided to give me something new to work on in Palia’s Patch 0.172: getting Amethyst, Aquamarine, Citrine, Emerald, Garnet, Jasper, Onyx, Quartz, Ruby, and Sapphire from mining

I’ll be investing all my newly earned cash on my dream home, which will now be expanded thanks to the new housing limits.

(A Bigger) Home Sweet Home

My Palia abode was starting to feel cramped, but Singularity 6 has made some extra space in Palia’s Patch 0.172. 

The number of items you can place in your house has gone from 2,000 to 3,000. And the party doesn’t stop there; the limit for total housing add-ons has been boosted from 15 to 30

As if that weren’t enough, you can now place multiple Main Houses on the same plot of land. Each Main House can have a maximum of 15 add-ons, and the 30-building limit applies. I bet those Palians who didn’t know what to do with their riches are having a blast now.
