  • Added the Pig Farm between Tindrem and Fabernum.

Known Issues:
  • Re-logging without closing the client will break chat.

A padded room.
Nice!

I am not able to check it out yet. But was female characters added? I don't see it on the notes and the wife is looking forward to when she can have a female character.

Thievery is not in the skills window (unless I've missed something), can someone from SV please shed light on whether we can expect it to be added at a later date?

Also, the night is way, way too dark. Before this patch it was just right, now it's almost like staring at a black screen. We need torches!

As long as there is something close with bright color it's pretty OK.

i hope this is something we can learn from MO1, making the nights super dark just forces people to up their gamma settings. IMO it was incredibly annoying to have to do so, i really hope this trend doesnt continue for MO2.

reducing the render distance instead is an interesting idea but the viewable area should not be so dark as to be un-navigable. it just promotes using gamma adjustments to see further than intended, and giving benefit to those that do vs those that dont.

night shouldnt be a time for players to logout because its stupidly dark and they cant get anywhere, and even if they do they're at a disadvantage unless they adjust their gamma.

I mean you could do what Escape from Tarkov does and that's ban people for using the GeForce shaders to cheat gamma

Couldn't log in too, it says server is unreachable. I'm guessing it's down for urgent maintenance, or something.
Issues with the login servers... Henrik is able to log in. I'm able to log in. Most others are not able to log in. For whatever reason...

Offline tests - best tests.

It would be nice to get some info on what is being planned in terms of clade gifts for all the different races.

also from the video i seen it looked like the 'gifts' got more generic as they went out from the center. stuff in the 3rd ring was all very generic 'increase' of the various attributes. also the cost didnt seem to increase when moving up rings, so if you get 20 points you can get more than half of the 'gifts' for your clade (30 total), which seems a bit much. i think a lot of balance will need to happen here

To be honest they all look pretty generic and increasing attributes a bit doesn't look that interesting at all. I would have expected it to be something more interesting gameplay wise, not just some number increases. What does faction standing even mean?

The new flagging system will be regional, faction dependent. E.g. you can enter Khurite Towns, but not Tindrem. And faction standing basically controls it.

They definitely have some work to do on the gifts, but it's a new system for them, so best we can do is give them feedback like mentioned here.

The fact that most of them are static stat increases is pretty boring, but I'm not sure what kind of things exactly are good alternates.

Maybe more like modifiers...like a gift that lets you recover hp when resting faster, holding your breath longer underwater, rezzing with slightly more health, slower hunger rate, quicker thirst recovery, holding a spell slightly longer, better magic resist, higher headshot dmg, slightly faster reading, gaining a little more skill from a book, slightly lower extraction times, slightly longer spell range, slightly lower aggro range, slightly lower bandage timer.

Not all of those are winners, some might be outright bad idk, just spitballing, but stuff like that so it's not overpowering but you can customize a little bit.

We also don't know how we're awarded these points or at what intervals so it's hard to say how significant the bonuses should be etc. Obviously we don't want them to be overwhelmingly strong because then you feel like you have to take a certain gift etc, but the more diverse the options the better, and I think since these are clade based then each clade should have different and some unique options.
