New Update for the Client, the Map and the Game Contents


Today there was another update of the parts of the game that are named in the title.

The Client mainly contains bug fixes of the reports that were sent to Mantis. Also movement is now automatically stopped after a teleport. This means if you use a portal or stairs you have to release the movement key or mouse button and press it again to continue moving. Also switching the attack target was sightly altered. It should work a little better now.

The game contents and the map got the following updates:

  • Made some changes needed in the Dark Hole Mine.
  • Making lamp oil now requires a new bottle.
  • Lantern inform modified.
  • Lake of Life dungeon available to roll out and will be made accessible during an upcoming quest.
  • Hints of the day modified to match new crafting distribution.
  • Using empty apple and cherry trees now starts wood cutting instead of an inform about not bearing fruits.
  • Buccaneer's Lurk modified.
  • The radius of one spawn in Akaltut's dungeon was adjusted.
  • Made a small map adjustment in the lower level of Mt. Letma.
  • When they have been attacked by archers, monsters will drop ammunition on their death again.
  • Treasures no longer disappear when player characters are too far away.

Update of the client, the maps and the game content

Today there was another update of the client, the game content and the maps.

The new client contains a load of small bugfixes that reduce the amount of crashes we were experiencing over the last few weeks. In addition to that, the entire light system was reworked. The light casting on the tiles is not smoothly interpolated and the entire calculation is working faster than before. The calculation of the day and night cycle was reworked as well and isn't doing any strange jumps any more. The length of a day also varies over the course of a Illarion year. The shortest days in the year is the 2nd and 3rd of Mas.

Changes at the game content and the map as usual as a nice and compact list:

  • Slight map adjustment to allow for the walking over the gates on the upper pathway of Galmair.
  • There are now two steaks, a raw and grilled steak. Only orcs can eat the raw steak.
  • Recipes have been adjusted for the changes.
  • Runewick homeland between dragon cave and Bear cave is more defined.
  • Map adjustments made to Galmair Arena. Monsters can no longer fire at the crowd or cast magic at them.
  • Hemptie Trader NPC stock is adjusted. It now sells level 0-10 weapons and armor and other minor miscellaneous supplies. The trader will buy everything he sells except for bags.
  • Clay and sand pits now utilize empty and full graphics.
  • A new mine shaft in the Copperhand Tunnel now makes trips to the Black Hole mine quicker from Galmair.
  • The map of the Volcano north of Runewick has been altered to decrease shadow and bugs eliminated.
  • Holes patched in wall in tower located in Sentry Forest, which allowed monsters to pass through.
  • Slime spawns near Galmair Harbour were adjusted.
  • Carrot plants and seeds received clearer names.
  • Spawn changes in Buccaneer's Lurk.
  • The development tutorial was improved.
  • The description of treasure chests was changed.
  • A graphic for empty shoals has been added. Shoals will replenish again.

Have fun with this new update! As usual you may discuss on the board if you have questions or comments regarding this update!
