Game Development: Glimmer Thatch

Postby jorb » Wed Oct 16, 2019 7:23 pm

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

Image

New Implementations
-----------------------
  • Made Glimmermoss a thatching material. Suggested on Discord.

Test Server Combat Changes
-----------------------
  • Added "Knock Its Teeth Out", arc attack. Costs one IP. Heavy damage. You can only hit people you have IP against, and if you hit several targets the cost will be subtracted from all the relevant combat relations.
  • Added "Opportunity Knocks", arc move. Costs two IP if you hit, and one if you miss. Adds a significant amount of special opening to the opponent. If you miss, the cost will be deducted from all fighting relations with available IP. If you hit you will only pay the cost in the fighting relation against the enemy you hit.
  • Added "Cleave", arc attack. Small angle, long radius. You can always use it, but it only targets the special opening given by "Opportunity Knocks". Deals massive damage if you hit.
  • Added "Rip Apart", loaded arc attack. Wide angle, variable radius. The radius extends while you hold down the attack button. Once you release, there is a short windup time, after which the attack will execute.
  • Initiating "Go for the Jugular" no longer interrupts movement, which continues along the trajectory you were on when initiating, making it particularly useful for pursuit. It may be too difficult to flee now, but there is some natural counter-play.
  • "Go for the Jugular" is interrupeted if you hit objects.
  • Kick has a shorter windup time.
  • Added graphical effects to indicate the arcs of area attacks.

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

Today's Patch Item, for the fair price of $7, is the "Bluejay's Cap".

All Gold subscribers have been awarded the "Bluejay's Cap". free of charge.

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

Enjoy!

It says "for the fair price of 7" and then it says it costs 10 in the image?

Does the UI show the openings and IP you have against people you aren't targeting? I know some custom clients already did this, so that sort of thing should definitely be implemented if so.

...Also wow, that glimmermoss change came in fast.
Highly opinionated, yet highly annoying. I have returned; and it is good to be back.

Sorry. Fixed.

Good point, probably. We're going to do a UI/Documentation/Icon pass when we're more finalized.

Nice hoping at some point you can add some animals for the people that do not PVP to learn how to use the new combat system as its closer to being done. Keep up the good work.

The thing is that animal AI is going to demand a rather total rework to work with this combat system, so we're saving that for when we're feeling more comfortable with the PvP aspects of it.

Look at the bright side. Cliff 'hunting' and boat 'hunting' might become all the more easier to deal with if animals outrange players.
