Changes

  • Replace rotate inplace behavior for all characters. It's now smoother and looks better for both the AI and other players over the network.

  • Adjusted skylight intensity transitions during dusk and dawn.
  • Adjusted look at character field of view for players and NPCs (when they start looking at others). Players will now only look actively at other characters when aiming closely at character faces. NPC FOV have been reduced to half to not excessively track every character in front of them.
  • Guard patrol paths have been updated in Haven.
  • Improve AI movement interpolations. This should improve stutters and sudden "sprints/teleports" mid combat during network load spikes and movement in general.
  • Update the mercy mode pose for Sators to be more readable by the player.
  • Adjusted movement for some creatures to be better synchronized with the ground.
  • Spiritism casting effects now have the correct duration when caster is on mount

  • Mental focus & offense xp gain is now based on mana cost,

Known Issues

  • Some particles and sound effects from NPCs and creatures leak into the etherworld. For example the troll will be very noticeable. We are working on piping all the effects through the same path to be able to filter them effectively.
