Released: 07/31/2018.


New Items for 5.7

  • Stoneborn Male is now a playable.
  • Half Giant Female is now playable.
  • Harvestable hunger crystals are now in campaigns. These hunger crystals cause other harvestable spawners nearby to become unharvestable and will add some snow and frozen FXs to the affected area. You must harvest and destroy these hunger crystals to unfreeze any nearby harvestable nodes. 
  • The following new mobs have been added to campaigns: Wolf, Elk, and non-hunger Hellcat.
  • Day and Night functionality has been introduced into campaign worlds including a Season Clock being visible within the UI. 
  • Added functionality for Day/Night cycle for mobs to now shift into a hunger version at night.

    • There are now slash commands you can use to set the current channel context. These commands are case sensitive. 
      • /Zone will change your chat panel to display Zone specific text.
      • /General is the slash command to set the chat panel back to its original settings.
      • The "Who" function has also been updated to /who + channelname. 
      • Clicking on a chat tab won't put you in the channel automatically. You will need to manually change it using /+channelname.

  • New lighting functionality has been added.
  • The first round of zoning has been implemented. This is the first step in allowing campaign worlds to have multiple zones (See Campaign for more details). 
  • Changes to the functionality of “F” to Interact have been added (See “F” to Interact for more details) .
  • New campaign map with hunger functionality, Aeryth has been added. 

Mobs and AI

  • Winter Hellcat Pounce now causes normal instead of execution class damage.
  • Summer Hellcat step now uses a soft target and shouldn't miss and causes normal damage.
  • Removed special ranged punishment mechanics from Ai strategy with Step since it is now a normal ranged attack.

  • Mobs can now “assist” other mobs.
  • Fixed an issue where mobs were only performing their first attack in a string of combos.
  • Code adjustments were made to increase the loot radius on a defeated mob.

  • Chat tabs can now subscribe and unsubscribe to channels and display text when it is broadcasted in those channels. The next step will be to mock up the UI for channel filters and integrate that with the game.
  • Updated the chat popup window to reflect the latest syntax of the chat commands. Also updated the /chathelp command to show the chat arguments along with the help text. In the past /who did not need the channel name because it was bound to the tab that we were typing into. Now since a tab can be subscribed to multiple channels, we need to provide the channel name to look up all the players that are in it.
