Development News #44 - ‘Optimizations’ and soon the ‘Shrouds of History’ will begin to lift!’

Post by Arrakis » 24 Mar 2017, 17:02

Greetings Feudalists!

This week we continued getting the new LiF:YO patch ready and worked on crushing some nasty bugs.
In particular:
  • network optimizations;
  • fixing combat-related crashes;
  • tuning forest growth algorithm to fix the 'forest dying out' issue;
  • repairing terrain flattening mechanics.
Our artists have been busy with new castle walls, shield damage states, as well as characters and decorations for LiF:MMO starting islands.

Yesterday the art guys finished sculpting a gavran type vessel. Sketches of this vessel, which you might have seen in one of the earlier blog entries. This is a Slavard’s Rook - a type of ship that local NPCs on the starting islands will be building while the players assist them with various tasks. As previously stated, they are for decoration; you will not be able to sail it freely (boat-lovers, hold on).

We are also getting ready to unveil the new and completely overhauled game world history and mythology: the so-called lore. The first part of the lore’s main focus will be on the traits of the Gottlungs, Slavards, Khoors. This new information will showcase their religions, how they live, what they do and in whom they worship. Step-by-step our world broadens, adds depth and acquires new details as this lore grows.

We are sure you have noticed the intense visuals and symbolism within the world; huge swords thrust into the ground, the Eye of the Sleeper upon the shredded moon, peculiar tattoos on the backs and faces of people, interface background pictures - all of it serves a greater purpose.

More revelations are to come. Stay tuned.

- The team

Disponible en Français : sur Lifeisfeudal-fr.com


Will these ships or decorations be seen on the MMO continent, not only on newbies island ?

Hello, what exactly is meant by "repairing terrain flattening mechanics."?

I read the OP that this boat will only be 'window dressing' for quest NPCs.

yes, but I hope all this work won't only be done ONLY for the newbies island... I hope we'll see these in the capital city too... when we leave the newbies island, we land in the capital city, why not seeing these boats on a harbour in or near the capital city ?

Does it mean, that we should expect the MMO version to be implemented on YO this week or in a week? I suppose, everyone is anxious about it right now.
