Game Development: Oak Apple Gold

Announcements about major changes in Haven & Hearth.

Game Development: Oak Apple Gold

Postby jorb » Wed Jul 18, 2018 12:14 am

We've been developing, and here's what's new.

Image

New Implementations
-----------------------
  • Quest givers will now, occasionally, reward you for completing quests for them with a permanent, local quality increase to some particular herb.
  • Added "Golden Thread", and "Golden Cloth". You can now make thread from silk, gold, and quicksilver, and then cloth from that. Only decorative for the time being. Suggested here.
  • Added skeletons to Stallion, Mare, Foal, Wildhorse and Grey Seal.
  • Added "Oak Apple", curiosity.

Key Fixes
-----------------------
  • Disallowed building of Wilderness Beacons and Hearthfires if building them would imply a crime of vandalism, to prevent exploits. This is not the solution we'd like to use, but the actual fix is more involved.

Small Fixes
-----------------------
  • Quest rewards are now determined upon completion, rather than generation, so you should no longer get, for example, zero percent hunger reduction rewards.
  • "Land of Milk & Honey" should now actually boost quests as indicated.
  • "Weird Beetroot" should now be more common.
  • Reduced risk of Coaler's Cough and Beestings.

Image
As always, if you liked what we did here: Support the patch.

Today's Patch Item, for the fair price of $10, is the "Clap Cap".

Store Description wrote:Image$10 It's not claptrap, the Clap Cap really does clap! A big round of applause for an awesome hat!


All Gold subscribers have been awarded the Clap Cap, free of charge.

In the Pipe
-----------------------

Enjoy!

If that hat doesn't make the clapping sound over and over I'm gonna be sorely disappointed.

Gonna guess the local quality means in the immediate area, not just for the person who completed the quest? Does charisma affect the quality increase? Can the increase stack infinitely? Does this reward mean that other rewards are thus less likely to occur?

Sounds.... dank

This dreadful ailment's heavy toll;
The spleen is what the English call it,
We call it simply, Russian soul.”
