Client update notes 7/DEC/17

  • Added an anchor option to skill tracker for anchoring bottom left or top left of the locked window when adding or removing skills.
  • Significantly reduced memory usage in situations where other players were in local. (This will include a rather large download of the graphics pack, but reduces the overall size and memory usage of the pack.)
  • Fixed not matching head and body colours.
  • Other general optimizations.

Patch Notes 17/NOV/17

  • 5 hours sleep bonus due to the skill rollback from last update has been awarded to all accounts
  • Player god missions should no longer spawn on Freedom.
  • Instead of being individually added upon branding, creatures will now have a special role for citizens with brand permissions on a deed. This will mean leaving the deed will revoke all permissions on branded creatures.

General Fixes

  • Bugfix: Permission window for bison should now correctly say Can Lead instead of Can Ride.
  • Bugfix: Fixed the issue with slay champion creature missions not advancing.
  • Bugfix: Libila animal sacrifice missions removed from Freedom.

WSA: Hotfix for skill transfers

During today’s update we performed a fix across player skills to correct those reduced from Epic skills. Unfortunately, during this fix another issue was caused, which led to large multipliers on skills. Due to this, we have made the decision to roll back skills to the time of the update, meaning a short window of skill gain since the update will be lost.

While we will not be providing any compensation this update, we will be providing +5 hours sleep bonus during a later update. (The cap will still be 10 hours, so as long as you are under 5 hours you will gain the full amount.)

We apologise for the downtime, and appreciate your patience while we address these issues.
