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. 188.8.131.52):
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
- Added a server setting that 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
- 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

- 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 and tweaked recipes for it
- Reworked alchemy herbs so they are now easier to spot and target in grass
