Game Development: Spring Chicken

Postby jorb » Thu Sep 12, 2019 7:38 pm

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

Image

New Implementations
-----------------------
  • Added "Coltsfoot", spring flower, curiosity.
  • Added a new spring experience

Key Fixes
-----------------------
  • Added support for logging causes of claim destruction.
  • Added support for displaying realm authority objects in the realm screen. May be a little slow in updating initially.

Small Fixes
-----------------------
  • Fixed a bug causing unnecessarily patchy snow. Should work next winter if not before.
  • Cattails and Spindly taproots can now spawn in wintertime, although they are less likely to do so.
  • Animals now have more fat during winter.
  • Beehives should now visually shut down during winter time.
  • Wild Beehives no longer spawn during winter.
  • Added a bird cadaver for the roasting spit.
  • Ice blocks melt slower in cellars, though you may need to move them to get the effect.
  • You can no longer raise fishing nets from frozen water.
  • You can now hearth home with a Kicksled.
  • You now fall off Kicksleds if knocked out while on them.
  • Kicksleds should no longer side face if you use a combat move while on them.
  • You can now leash horses to mine beams.
  • Water striders should no longer spawn during winter.
  • Reindeer should be more common during winter.
  • Bird Nests have more eggs during spring.
  • The Claim Pole is always visible when you have yeomanry, regardless of knowing the inputs.
  • Fixed, or at least improved, a problem by which disassembled wrecking balls would give siege warnings.
  • Fixed a problem by which a frozen over vortex could still teleport you away.
  • Fixed a few problems with various object types (caves, docks) erroneously sinking into the ocean come spring.

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

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

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

Enjoy!

what about all tree's having no seeds? what about underground tree's having no seeds ? hope this is not a mechanic where we only get tree seeds on certain season time, it's already hard to do credo's and having to wait weeks to get a seed sucks really bad.

Well, if food & level scaling is seriously flattened, there is a chance some (not all) issues with combat will be solved .

Any comment on viewtopic.php?f=48&t=66322 ?
It has been seriously negatively been impacting our little starting village. Also, are you dead set on your idea for the satistion rework? I think I might have a good suggestion later tonight for something alternative.
Highly opinionated, yet highly annoying. I have returned; and it is good to be back.
