Herius

Quality Assurance Lead
Added:

  • Upgraded to a more recent unreal engine.
  • Re-added support for first person helmet overlays.
  • Added a bunch of new custom helmet overlays.
  • Improved UI and stat connection to avoid desync between the two.
  • Built a cheaper unified stat-calcing class. This sound speed up UI updates a tiny bit.
  • Added support for /option command.
    This command will set a booleon option in the options menu from the chat.
    Use /option ? to see what options can be set, this is mainly implemented to give player the ability to make a macro for their hot bar to quickly change bSwapAltFunction or bMouseCombatBlock based on what weapon they use rather then having to enter the options menu.
    examples:
    "/options bSwapAltFunction true" will set it to true
    "/options bSwapAltFunction false" will set it to false
    "/options bSwapAltFunction" will set it to true if it's false and false if it's true.
  • Added sound to deathFX
  • Added more checks to the swap-item slots UI part.
  • Using a pet receipt will now give a message to inform you that it worked.
  • Cleaned up and wrote a lot of skill descriptions.
  • Added bFootStepSound_Self to turn of your own footsteps only
  • Added full support for extra particles and sound when hit per hit group.
  • Added support for hit feedback on player legs.
  • Built better support for initial animations when you first load a character (such as sleeping, sitting etc).
  • Added support for weapons that can not be used while mounted.
  • Fledglings can no longer damage things that would make him/her a criminal.
    Instead they will get a message explaining what would happen if they did.
  • Fledglings can no longer loot things that would make him/her a criminal.
    Instead they will get a message explaining what would happen if they did.
  • Added new "burnt loot bag" this will be dropped by AI that burns up as their death effect.
  • Tweaked decapitation blood for more..blood.
  • Built a more unified options system to make it easier to add ingame options.
  • Added /oculus chat command.
    This will turn on the oculus rift rendering and control mode.
    Note that this is still very early work in progress and needs a lot more tweaking but is kinda cool.
  • Added description to horse shoes.
  • Added description to horse blinders.
  • Improved particle spawning for corpse that lost limbs.
  • Improved how the last damage influences rag dolls.
  • Added support for /emote commands that doesn't play an animation. These will show up as <player> <emote> and can be used for RP. Emotes have the same range as local chat.
  • Added support for /order commands. Order commands gets sent as a LOCAL guildchat and will popup on you guildfriends screens. This is useful for commanding your guildmates around in a hectic guildfight.
    Both of these now support "tgt" and "me" where "tgt" will be replaced with the name of your target and "me" will be replaced with your name.
  • Rebuilt gathering system, it's now based on the material of what you are looking at rather then the actor.
  • Added woodcutting and mining to the new material-based gather system.
    How does this new system affect the game? Using materials instead of mesh or actors gives us a much better way of handeling what you can mine/woodcut/pick. We can also have have more then one action on a single mesh. You can for example pick moss from a stone or mine from it depending on where you aim. It also makes it a lot more clear where you can mine since you can recognize the material rather then the mesh.
    Further more we can no support things such as being able to use woodcutting on different parts of a tree to get slightly differet wood etc.
  • Improved sound feedback when taking damage.
