Development News #9 - New Dangers Lurking in the Wild!

Post by Arrakis » 15 Jul 2016, 14:19

Hey everyone,

Welcome to this week’s development update! We sincerely hope you’ve been enjoying the screenshots and insight into some of the things we’ve been getting up to.

Check out one of this week’s WiP screenshots - this halfplate armour concept art:

rimg


We know a lot of you are really looking forward to our native NPCs, so we’re really excited to share some more information and concept art to entice you that little bit more!

According to old chronicles, the fierce tribes are dotted about mountains and mines in both the north and in the south of the Island. They’re vicious, stealthy hunters and have even been known to indulge in cannibalism. Their form seems less than human, leaving many to speculate that they are demons.

rimg


These natives may not be too happy with your arrival to the island, it is their homeland, afterall.

Look out for them, they’re coming soon™!

Thanks for reading this week’s dev update - catch us next week for more

- The Team

Personally, I am absolutely not for NPCs , I prefer the game to be completely run by players (remember , life is feudal and the Middle Ages , there was no NPC ... ) . Development should work on more important things, like the stability of servers , adding boat, develop guilds ( guilds in grade / relationship between guilds, ...), the drawn wagons by horses, etc.

*****************************************

Personnellement, je ne suis absolument pas pour les PNJ, je préfère que le jeu soit entièrement géré par les joueurs (rappelez vous, la vie est feodal et au moyen age, il n'y avait pas de PNJ...). Le développement devrait travailler sur des choses plus importantes, comme la stabilités des serveurs, l'ajout de bateau, développer les guildes (grade dans les guildes / relation entre guildes, ...), les chariots tirés par les cheveaux, etc.

These are not NPCs in the meaning you are thinking about. They are - or rather they will be - a part of PvE environment, enemies that players will encounter and fight. No small part of the community wishes for richer PvE experience, and here it comes, in the form of those very unfriendly, intimidating natives. ;)

Nice work guys, I think a bit of PVE environment won't hurt and might actually bring some people back to playtest the game.

more new content - more new bugzz....
what about progress of known bugz fixing?

so would be cool to tell us when it will be implemented.... for example - new armor for wave #2, natives for release, or something....
are natives for MMO only or for YO too ?

Others work on bug fixing while those who can't fix them work on the other stuff such as designing the npc models. :beer:

er... natives were in the original LiF:MMO design, far way before the gloria victis was announced...

there is nothing new there



but, why not finally... they remember me "13th warrior wendols", who could be the very last neanderthals but this is pure conjecture due to the lack of historic proof...

We can't give you any details on cart transportation yet. There' still much work to do.

As for sawmill, we have decided to temporarily remove it from the game until we can implement it with proper mechanics, and most likely in the form of a windmill. Steel sickle on the other hand, along with other, better variants of tools will be rebalanced.

64bits servers and clients won't improve the server side population limit... so, "more people"... ?

An Option to turn natives off seems likely ... at least as they´re lookin not tameable. :D

Developing should takes the time it needs. Don´t feel rushed, it´s quite better to get a Feature some weeks later, than getting it asap but with a load of bugs.

Hey, it´s LiF ... Patience is part of the gameplay. :good:

Clearly you are not reading. We get it, you are french and you are uptight.



what don't you understand ?

it has been asked several time, devs answered they won't improve it, and some modders tried... they cannot do it due to the torque 3D itself preventing people to mod the game to increse the server player limit... that has nothing to do with the 32 or 64bit client...

servers and the game will run smoother, it might bring people back to the game but, nope, you server will not welcome "more players"...

Actually, that is correct. We won't be increasing player cap for LiF:YO.

Its not an engine limit, it is a limit placed in code by the developers/
