Updates of… everything

Hello,

Today there was a big update. The update affected the server, client, launcher, maps and game content.

Now one after another. The changes to the server aren't all that impressive from the outside. They involve mainly bug fixes and changes required for upcoming updates.

The client on the other hand, got a lot of changes you will notice. It now takes full advantage of Java 8 that was rolled out with the last update of the launcher. Also the client got an integrated translation tool. This one will be explained in further details in the forums. Hopefully this tool will draw the English and German parts of the community closer together.

Furthermore the client got the following changes:

  • All error reports generated by the last client version that were sent by the automated error reporting are handled and resolved as far as possible.
  • The light calculation was improved: No more flickering while walking or working.
  • Movement got improved: The strange jumps and jumpy movement when walking close to other characters and monsters is gone.
  • The transparency of some UI elements got increased.
  • Unknown characters are no longer called "Someone" but get a name related to their race.
  • Many of the books in the client were changed and updated. Nine new books were added.

The launcher got a couple of updates that mainly aim to increase the general speed of the tool. The launcher is now launching faster, is able to check faster if there is a new client version and starts the client faster. The bug that caused the launcher to remain active after the main window was closed it now gone too.

The game contents and the map got the following updates:

  • Intelligence now has a small influence on how fast you learn skills.
  • The "Mental Capacity" system now reacts much slower on changed player behaviour.
  • The description of Runewick now reflects the in game reality.
  • The German translation of Yewdale (Eibenthal) is now correctly spelled in the game.
  • Elstree forest is also now translated correctly (Elsbaumwald).
  • Some items were renamed.
  • The quality display of steel boots was corrected.
  • Spawns were updated in Igruk's Cave.
  • Spawns were adjusted at the Altar of Hatred and in the Dead Marsh, which are both southeast of the Hemp Necktie Inn.
  • You should now be able to socket all bows with magical gemstones.
  • The quest "A question of honour" in Cadomyr was fixed. It will now be recognized when you visit the Archmage.
  • The damage of the fire raptor got nerfed.

There are some more minor updates. But those are the most important ones.

Have fun in Illarion.
