Hardware Problems - Solved
The server harddisk just broke yesterday, taking everything down.
Fortunately, I've got backups and was able to restore the whole system. During march the harddisk was not writable for a while. Any achievements gained during that period are likely lost, because no changes to the player files could be stored.
Now we are running on a new harddisk and also a RAID 1, that may eventually help prevent such troubles in future.
New Skill Icons / Artefacts
The skill icons have been redesigned, in order to reflect both category and resource consumption visually.
Artefact dropchances haven been tweaked and overall increased. New artefact "titan's bracers" has been added.
The game world has expanded. Several new areas have been added to the higher-level parts, byond the river. There is lots of new stuff to discover: monsters, items, graphics, quests and skills. Try the new boss fights.
Content Update / Monk Improvements
A new area has been added to the fungus forest. Monk class can now upgrade the "Circle of Healing" skill. Several rebalances for the monk. Valor potions can now be found in shops. A new quest for all non-monk classes.
It is now possible to learn new skills despite lacking stat points. A debt of up to six stat points may be taken. A dept of stat points is subsequently cleared after level-ups. This change should help to make learning new skills easier. Saving up stat points (without spending them) was difficult and many players just didn't do it.
Mutant Class Rebalancing
Several changes have improved the balance and playability of the mutant class: There is now a confirmation process for mutations - which allows mutans to control the changes of their gear (body parts) in a much better way. New flesh items and mutations have been added - existing ones have been rebalanced. There is now much more high level gear for mutants available.
New skills and quests for the wizard have been added.
Client 1.0.10 - Windows XP
New game client version 1.0.10 released: Fixed support for Windows XP.
Monk Class Rebalancing
The monk class is now better balanced and thus more fun to play. Special quests for the monk class have been added. Valor potions have been introduced, to help monks build up initial valor after re-login or death.
Many minor balancing changes. Savebeds can now be found in two locations outside the starting town. Fixed a bug in the quest system, that would allow starting of quests which cannot be completed.
