Announcements about major changes in Haven & Hearth.

Game Development: Breath of Air

Postby jorb » Thu Aug 11, 2016 12:13 am

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

Hearth Magic
-----------------------
  • Gilding Song: Adds a gilding slot to an otherwise finished Artifact.
  • Horse Whisper: Convert Horse energy to pony power.
  • Contemplation & Meditation: Halve the remaining study time on a curiosity.
  • Fishers Request for a Catch: Buff fishing success rate and speed.

Key Fixes
-----------------------
  • Pushed a fairly critical and invasive change to the plot handling system, in expectation of future needs. Keep an eye out for unusal claim behaviors. Feel free to test.
  • Expanded the map a fair bit in all directions.
  • Ice Spires and salt pools should now be initialized as more or less depleted.
  • Removed level caps.
  • Palisades can never be hand bashed after they have soaked entirely the first time.

Small Fixes
-----------------------
  • Reduced salt hunger reduction from base 50% to 20%.
  • Increase Mirkwood Offering costs to 100XP and 2hr study time.
  • Increased aiming speeds for ranged weapons by 25% generally.

Administriva
-----------------------
  • The moderation team has been significantly reduced.
  • The Inner Party has been reduced to include only the moderation team, and is thus functionally dissolved.
  • These changes are not motivated by personal dissatisfaction on our part, and we thank everyone who has been involved in either capacity for their help, support, and everything, over the years. We want a smaller crew and a change of pace, quite simply. Semper fi.

In the Pipe
-----------------------
  • We were actually doing something else entirely, which we'll hopefully have ready next week, but decided to try to throw some crazies at the wall tonight to see if anything sticks.

Enjoy!

There was a wise soviet conscript that was surrounded by the enemy on the battle of Stalingrad. A mortar shot teared his pants apart causing a big hole in his pants right on his right butt cheek. He felt a glorious cold ass breeze of wind on his butt cheek, like it would be sent by stalin himself, he said - hide your butts

I don't see much healthy PvP around anyway, so if people want to push stats I see no reason to stand in the way of that.
