Game Development: Rotating Wolfdog

Postby jorb » Sun Jan 16, 2022 10:12 pm

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

Image

New Implementations
-----------------------
  • Added "Wolfdog", sausage.

Key Fixes
-----------------------
  • Knarrs, Snekkjas, Battering Rams and Catapults, should all now refuse movements which require them to rotate into "hard" objects (houses, palisades, war flags, other siege engines, &c), thereby hopefully preventing various shenanigans with overlapping bounding boxes.
  • In response to this report about butchering tedium we made it so that the maximum time required for a butchering step is capped.
  • Village banners belonging to dead villages should be significantly easier to bash. In response to this report.
  • "Strongbox"es and "Wagon Station"s now require a setting time, much like houses and palisades, before reaching their full soak values. I.e. when first built they can be destroyed without much effort.

Small Fixes
-----------------------
  • Thingwalls now project a small building obstacle immediately around themselves.
  • Substances in "Granary"(ies) now show proper tooltips.
  • Fixed a bug by which claims would always flash when interacting with barter stands.
  • Fixed a bug by which one could drop wagons without error message.
  • Drinks now show their satiation reductions on their fluid tooltips.
  • Fixed a critical bug with the "Heave-ho!" experience.
  • You can now Ctrl-Right-click on tables to open them while holding an item.
  • Redrew the standard buttons in higher resolution to better support UI-scaling.

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

Today's Patch Item, for the fair price of $9 is the "Lettuce Hat".

Store Description wrote:Image$9 Let us have seen, lovely lettuce that, folded a hat, of salad green!


All Gold & Silver subscribers have been awarded the "Lettuce Hat", free of charge.

In the Pipe
-----------------------
  • Fully back from the holidays. Hope you all had good ones!
  • We are working on a conversation system for quest givers, which is currently our bigger project (tm). Making progress, but patches may not be weekly.
  • Again urging any custom client maker who wishes to stay relevant to get with the new rendering times. Support for the old resources will be dropped at some point.
  • Our primary development direction is toward object-controlled-objects.
  • Time to... like us on Facebook?
  • Time to... follow us on Twitter?

Enjoy!
