Horse-drawn Carts and New Walls - AT LAST! (1.3.4.5)

29.09.2017
tags: yo yopatch
FINALLY!

After countless sleepless nights, frustration, desperation and strokes of hysterical laughter, we’ve managed to merge the four separate types of entities into one: a horse, a player, a cart and movable objects. The result of which has been highly anticipated by many players and is called: Horse-drawn carts!

Now you can fetch large amounts of items and certain movable objects around the map in an efficient and immersive way. Who knows, maybe you will not need a home anymore and can play as a nomad with all your stuff fitting into one cart? It is Your Own decision, after all! ;)

Also, we’ve implemented a new large set of castle wall models and new keeps! Recipes for building these are now available to you. These new walls should be more efficient and provide a wider angle of fire for the defenders’ archers. New keeps can now be built on top of your guild monument to provide an additional layer of protection for the “heart” of your guild.

We also would like to remind you that this major feature was one of the most voted features suggested by our players. We encourage you, our players, to visit this page and browse through the existing features, vote for them, discuss with others and even suggest your own ideas here!

Lastly, we’ve transferred all the current changes and features from the beta branch to the main/release branch. This means that you will be able to play with these features without a need to switch to the beta branch. The full list of features that are transferred from the beta branch and added with the current patch:

  • Implemented impact damage that is caused by a horse that tramples a player

This mechanism is DISABLED by default. Server admins may to enable this setting by modifying the: $cm_config::Decay::HorsesDecayTimeMinutes preference
  • Implemented a server-side setting that gives the ability to enable or disable all inventory items being dropped on the ground when a player uses the Homecoming Prayer skill ($cm_config::HomecomingDrop = 0;)
  • New tooltips system implemented - you can now see detailed information about items, character stats and active effects

  • Archer Stand and Defensive Fence now set up immediately in a complete state

14.04.2017
tags: yo yopatch

Hey everyone,

Spring is in the air and some of the animals in the Life is Feudal world seem to have ingested something bright and rather, well, psychedelic since they are laying unusually colorful eggs…

And don’t get us started on the reports from a number of villages that fluffy little bunnies are also producing equally patterned and rainbow-esque Easter eggs! Can we get a collective, ‘aww’?!

Send in your Easter screenshots or tag us using #FeudalEaster

  • Optimized and partially rewritten AI system. These changes may result in a slight server side performance boost, but they are mainly designed to be a foundation for Natives and horse-driven carts
  • Implemented parallax effect on terrain textures
  • Added ‘Maximized window’ display mode
  • You can change language in Game settings menu now, as well as guid invites, groups and barter requests
  • All types of damage affect movable objects now
  • Implemented ‘chopping’ type of damage for different axe-type weapons. This type of damage is more effective against small, movable objects than slashing, blunt or piercing damage

  • Combo, special attacks and attacks with Power Strike effect properly ignore parrying now (as it was originally intended)
  • Hit damage type transforms to blunt when hit is blocked by a shield
  • Practice weapons do not require a linen rope now in their crafting recipes. That should make practice weapons more available at earlier stages of development

  • Nerfed lances damage multiplier

Crops Growth Fix (1.1.8.1)

27.12.2016
tags: yo yopatch
Hey everyone,

In this patch, we’ve provided a fix to the crops growth algorithm, which was not calculating growth as intended. It now works as intended; crops receive growth increment once sunny weather changes into the shower weather and vice versa. All other types of weather are not taken into account. It takes 4 incrementations before you see the result of the growth (model change).

So let’s say that you have had the following weather in the last two weeks in game:
  • Day 1: Sunny
  • Day 2: Shower (+1 growth)
  • Day 3: Shower
  • Day 4: Sunny (+1 growth)
  • Day 5: Shower (+1 growth)
  • Day 6: Cloudy
  • Day 7: Cloudy
  • Day 8: Shower
  • Day 9: Sunny (+1 growth, you’ll see green sprouts)
  • Day 10: Shower (+1 growth)
  • Day 11: Shower
  • Day 12: Cloudy
  • Day 13: Sunny (+1 growth)
  • Day 14: Shower (+1 growth)
  • Day 15: Sunny (+1 growth, you’ll see fully grown crops that can be harvested)
After three more growth increments, fully grown crops will rot and disappear. So, as you can see, you need an ideal balance of sun and rain for your crops to grow faster. Spring and early Summer are the best seasons for crop growth, of course!

Plus, after this fix, crops should grow significantly faster now.
P.S. There are some minor tweaks to the skills progression speeds and stamina they spend.

Fall in, now! (1.1.7.4)

01.12.2016
tags: yo yopatch
Hey everyone,

We’re releasing the changes you may have seen in our announcement of the BETA branch patch notes. Now all of these changes are being released along with some few minor adjustments and fixes. Full patch notes below:

Patch notes (ver. 1.1.7.4):

New features and tweaks:

  • Falling damage has been re-enabled. Take care jumping now!
  • To satisfy demands of some users we have added new attack direction bindings in the Controls section of the game. You can bind each directional attack to a separate key. Thrusting with a mouse wheel feels so goood :)
  • Added barefoot effect. You need to wear any type of boots in order to reach fully intended character speed
  • Added a server setting, which can alter the speed of tree growth. It is intended that trees now grow slower. Also, server admins are not required to manually run scripts to remove trees stumps from the gameworld. It is possible to speed up forest growth via two ways:
  • 1. by changing TreeAgingSpeed setting in cm_forest_maintenance.xml before server startup (this will be persistent between server restarts)
  • 2. by changing script variable $ForestMaintenance::treeAgingSpeed via server console (the setting will be reset when you restart the server, may be useful for experimentation)
  • Melee attacks with insufficient skill are 25% slower now (instead of 50%)
  • Crops, trees and livestock growth now strictly depends on weather, which in turn depends on the season
  • Added a bunch of new ingredients and items for armor crafting abilities: "Make Armor" and "Leatherworking"
  • Buffed passive defense to a maximum of 70% if block is active and a maximum of 50% if the shield is in hand but block is not active
  • Fixed Shield block animation
  • The speed that you raise your shield is now dependent on shield weight
  • Crossbows should work more adequately now (reload, shooting, aiming). Crossbow bolts can now be equipped in lower slots.
  • Tweaked throwing weaponry projectile speeds to result in more realistic trajectories
  • New training field model added with tweaked recipes for it
  • Reworked alchemy herbs so they are now easier to spot and target in grass
  • Critical equipment weight is now dependent on Constitution
  • Critical equipped weapon weight is now dependent on Strength
  • Changed parry mechanics. Parrying has a limited duration and stagger chance depending on a weapon’s weight now
  • Added the ability to fight with a spear and shield (Both appropriate skills are required)
  • Added regions and the ability to craft with regional resources has been introduced
  • Veteran and Royal armors are now crafted with blueprints, you can acquire these blueprints by crafting regular armor
  • Inventory no longer has magical healing properties for horses
  • Some weapons now have a chance to stun or knockout an enemy
  • Stun resistance is now dependent on Willpower
  • Each point of Intelligence now gives 2 skill points
  • The quality of metal items is now dependent on metal type. The highest quality weapon is now possible only using Vostaskus steel.
  • Changes made to some building and item recipes
  • WIld animals now walk and turn properly on terrain with proper animations
  • copper ingots, bars, lumps excluded from Common metals group
  • specific metal in some recipes changed to Common metals
  • quality cap of metal items changed to 60-80-100 (iron - steel - Vostascus steel)
  • Sleeper’s moon night has been removed. Perhaps we’ll see it again …someday

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed multiple collision related exploits, where players were able to squeeze themselves through closed doors and gates
  • Multiple chat window related fixes and tweaks
  • Recycling of metals now should provide more adequate results
  • Fixed incorrect wild animal AI calculations that caused excessive lag on servers
  • Wild animals’ tracks now correctly lead you to the wild animal
  • Fixed a bug with incorrect weight calculation when moving containers inside your inventory
  • Fixed a rare network related crash
  • Fixed a rare shadows bug, when observing terrain from a high elevation
  • Implemented new webkit support. We expect that ingame tutorials should work properly and be faster and more stable.
  • “Pour on ground” ability will only work in a hostile claim area during Judgement Hour
  • Client runs more smoothly when launching and added a splash screen while the client is loading

Fall in! (1.1.7.0 (BETA))

25.11.2016
tags: yo yopatch
Hey everyone,


We’ve introduced some major physics refactoring, which has removed the “pit of death” collision issues. This has allowed us to re-enable falling damage for greater immersion and realism. Please do be careful now if jumping from your house roof or while slamming at high speed into each other.
As for tree growth speed, it is intended to be slow for enhanced realism. As a result, we have implemented a new server setting that allows you to tweak this if the default setting is a little too painful.

Patch notes (ver. 1.1.7.0):

New features and tweaks:

  • Falling damage has been re-enabled. Take care jumping now!
  • Added a barefoot effect. You need to wear any type of boots in order to reach fully intended character speed

Halloween ...is when the beta is released! (1.1.5.7)

31.10.2016
tags: yo yopatch
The Sleeper’s bloody moon, burning heads on sticks and infernal animals is a sure sign that Halloween has come to Life is Feudal!


Plus, in this patch, we are finally releasing a long tested beta branch with two systems, which have been completely rewritten from scratch: animal AI and forest growth algorithms with new bushes.

Patch notes (ver. 1.1.5.7):

New features and tweaks:

  • Implemented completely new AI behavior and spawning algorithms. Animals should be able to follow you inside buildings, not get stuck between trees, spawn better with less bugs and generally work more adequately, with better performance server side
  • Implemented a new forest growth algorithm. Bush growth is taken into account and the overall performance of growing forests should be improved. The visual aspect of the growth should look better too. Overall speed of forest growth has also been significantly lowered
  • Cells blocked by buildings/tunnels/forest visualizations are now client side only. It should increase the performance of ‘Observe Mode’ and make it more responsive
  • Added burning heads on sticks
  • Added Sleeper’s moon visuals. Wolves have demonic eyes now too
  • Added new ability - gathering nuts, which will appear as an inventory item
  • Primitive cooking recipes now available for the big cauldron and kitchen
  • Grass will not grow under buildings, around tunnels and on cells that are blocked by construction or tunnels

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed a notorious and elusive bug with tanning tubs and drying racks being bugged out in certain unusual circumstances. This may hopefully also fix similar bugs with campfires and other objects that have lengthy crafting processes
  • Players are now spawned exactly at the same coordinates they logged off from. This is to prevent exploits, which allowed players to log out near castle walls, only to appear on top of it after logging back in
  • Multiple fixes for improper movable objects positioning/drop
  • Traps no longer disable invulnerable players (I.E. spawning on top of the trap)
  • Fixed mines for copper ability duration
  • Some other minor fixes

Happy Halloween from the team!

Beta testing branch changes (1.1.5.1 - BETA)

07.10.2016
tags: yo yopatch
In this beta patch, we’re proud to introduce to you two systems, which have been completely rewritten from scratch: animal AI and forest growth algorithms. You may come across some small bugs and glitches here and there, as it is the first time we’ll be testing these new systems on a massive scale with real players, so don’t worry!

Patch notes (ver. 1.1.5.1 - BETA):

New features and tweaks:

  • Implemented completely new AI behavior and spawn algorithms. Animals should be able to follow you inside buildings, not get stuck between trees, spawn better with less bugs and generally work more adequately, with better performance server side

  • Traps no longer disable invulnerable players (just spawned on the trap)
  • Fixed mine for copper ability duration
  • Some other minor fixes
We want to warn you that migration from the current branch to the beta branch should be smooth, but you may have some issues migrating existing beta worlds back into the current release state. With this in mind, please save and backup your worlds before you switch from beta back to release!

  • Short Pike and Long Pike "wall of pikes" attacks now works as intended

A LOT of server and client optimizations in before the next MMO beta wave(1.1.3.1)

18.08.2016
tags: yo yopatch
Hey everyone,

Once again we want to thank our community for helping us to develop our game! Due to recent load tests that were performed along with our community members, we’ve managed to find some code that was not optimal. Fixing these code parts resulted in a significant server performance boost that can vary from 10% to 25%!

We’ve also implemented one of the highly-requested features by our community - an observe mode that can be used while running.

Patch notes (ver. 1.1.3.1):

Long Live LiF:YO! (1.1.2.1)

22.07.2016
tags: yo yopatch
Hey everyone,

It has been some time since our last patch - some of you may have even started to believe the one or two doomsayers proclaiming that we’ve abandoned the development of LiF:YO for the sake of the MMO - yikes. We think the best way to prove them wrong is by taking action! So behold our latest patch!

Patch notes (1.1.2.1):

Sit down and wait for the MMO Beta …please! (1.1.1.8)

27.04.2016
tags: yo yopatch
Hey everyone,

We know we said it last time, but this should hopefully be our last patch in the beta branch before we transfer it to the release branch - phew!

We’ve implemented proper sitting mechanics and animation for all you RP lovers in LiF!


We are still working on some issues in the MMORPG build, which is delaying the start of the first phase of Closed Beta tests, so unfortunately, we are unable to give an ETA at the moment - but we will keep you updated! :(

Patch notes (ver. 1.1.1.8):

Beta branch update #inb4MMO (1.1.0.1)

08.04.2016
tags: yo yopatch
Hey everyone,
 
Firstly, we want to thank you for your patience while we ensure the latest patch is stable. We have one or two little things we need to do but have decided that we can release today under the beta branch - so obviously please keep in mind that it’s still in a WiP state - (check out the link here to find out how to switch to beta) for those who are eager to try it out! 
 

You will have to start a new server in the beta branch.

Next week we are going to release another small patch, which will enable automatic migration of your existing worlds. 
Once we have ironed out any remaining bugs, and ensured the gameplay is stable and balanced we will apply the current patch on the main branch (so everyone can join in) later on!
 
Patch notes (ver. 1.1.0.1):

Proper seasons and a herbalist’s garden (1.0.6.3 (420))

20.02.2016
tags: yo yopatch
Before we reveal the contents of the current patch, we’d like to make a short announcement: 
 
There is no MMO beta test going on at the moment! We will make a separate announcement once we have started the beta test, and once LiF:YO owners are able to join that test. Thank you for your attention! 
 
Additionally, with the current patch we are releasing Steam trading cards! We hope you will like them! 
 
This patch contains the art for all four seasons, you can check out some of the visual changes here
 
One particular problem that many of our players have experienced was the inability to quickly find, and gather, desired herbs for alchemy. This is why we have implemented a herbalist’s garden in this patch. Feel free to experiment with different types of fertilizer to achieve the highest yields. 
 
Patch notes (ver. 1.0.6.3):
 

Requiem for a client crashes (1.0.4.3)

28.01.2016
tags: yo yopatch
After literally months of bug hunting, debugging and code rewriting, we’ve managed to fix the cause of the most rampant client-side crashes we’ve had so far! It definitely won’t fix all crashes at once, but we expect that at least 60% of crashes should disappear. Please do not hesitate to send an automatic crash report if you experience a client-side crash during your gameplay session - it’s a big help! 
 
Patch notes (ver. 1.0.4.3):
 

In before first content patch (1.0.0.11)

24.11.2015
tags: yo yopatch
In this current hotfix patch we have fixed numerous client crashes that some of you might have experienced. You should also notice some slight - or even significant - improvement to your FPS rates in some scenes. Black textures on terrain are fixed in this current patch too. That is all along with numerous other small to medium bugfixes. 
 
We hope that this current patch will be the last of the series of our quickfix patches, which were aimed to fix most crashes and rendering issues that some players were experiencing on their hardware. We will provide optimizations and fixes on a continuous basis, but hope that the need for them will be significantly less now. 
 
P.S. Expect some new content patches to pop up within the next two weeks. We are going to concentrate on community voted features. We remind you that you can take part in deciding what to introduce next into the harsh world of Life is Feudal:Your Own. 
P.P.S Quality settings of water and shadow shaders will require a client restart now in order to be applied properly.

Second Aid (1.0.0.6)

19.11.2015
tags: yo yopatch
This current hotfix patch should fix all (or at least most) rendering glitches, as well as some of the crashes that users have experienced on some hardware. You should also notice increased performance in certain places where you may have experienced frame rate drops before. 
 
Black terrain textures seems to be partially fixed, but they still might exist in some cases on some hardware. We’re looking deeper into it. 
 
We really appreciate your patience and understanding and are very thankful for it!

First Aid (1.0.0.3)

18.11.2015
tags: yo yopatch
In this current hotfix patch we have provided a fix for server crashes when wild animals are enabled. Some minor bug fixes are included too. 
 
We are aware of numerous performance issues, video render glitches (broken geometry, GUI artifacts, black terrain textures etc.) and crashes that users experience on some hardware and we are working very hard on a solution to that problem. So far, it has been noted that disabling and reenabling of the GUI rendering (Ctrl+H, Ctrl+H) helps to temporarily fix most of them. We are working hard to provide a permanent solution for that issue. 
 
Expect “Second Aid” patch coming later this week. Thank you to everyone for being patient with us while we tackle these issues.

Back to the main menu … at last (0.8.2.3)

14.10.2015
tags: yo yopatch
Current patch contains the long awaited “Disconnect” functionality, which allows you to disconnect from your current server and then connect to another with no need to restart the game. That is along with numerous other bug fixes and some gameplay tweaks.
 
Patch notes (ver. 0.8.2.3):

New Barter system and more stability while creating Your Own world (0.8.0.6)

06.10.2015
tags: yo yopatch
We have completely reworked the mechanism of local world creation and hosting. You should not notice much of a difference, but, hopefully, there will be more stability while performing the task. 
Thanks to significant help from BasilMod’s author, we have included a barter system (player to player) into our official build. 
We had also SIGNIFICANTLY reworked skill progression formula towards planned concept of fast 30, 60 lvl progression, normal 90 lvl progression and INSANELY hard progression to 100 lvl of a skill. Make sure that you have altered your server skill multipliers accordingly. Enjoy! 
 
Patch notes (ver. 0.8.0.6):
