Dev Log #11: Version 0.1.6.0. released
« on: January 14, 2013, 12:24:08 AM »
The game is updated to version 0.1.6.0 on Desura, soon to be updated in other places as well (GamersGate and Groupees). You'll find all the new stuff listed here and in the previous two dev logs.



  • Added creature respawning. Creatures in most places will respawn every two hours. Some bandits will also respawn, but most of the human enemies in the current areas will not respawn (since it wouldn't make sense in the context of these areas).
  • Merchants will now refresh their inventories every 90 minutes.
  • Reduced the frequency of base stat point gain. Player character will now gain an extra base stat point every four levels, instead of every two.
  • Fixed the problem with indirect kills not giving the player XP - all damage over time effects, ground effects and explosive barrels will now properly credit the player with XP.
  • Experience gains are now calculated against character's "potential level" which takes into account all XP gained to that point even if you stayed off leveling up.
  • Opening and closing doors in combat now cost 25 action points (up from 10) so no more open-shoot-close tactics!
  • Locked doors and containers will now display the difficulty rating on attempted use. Lockpicks and haxxors will display the max. lock difficulty they can handle in hands of the player character.
  • SGS merchants will now accept stygian coins (charons).

That's it for this patch. Be sure to let me know what you think of the changes and the new stuff once you get the chance to check it out.

I haven't decided yet. Currently it's capped at 20, but I'll probably increase that at some point.

Neat!

And with changes most of my workarounds are null again.

Also does respawn timer work only in game time, or is it two hours in RL? (may be a stupid question, but still somebody needs to ask this :P).

I'll be adding more side quests in the next update. As for the main plot, you'll have to wait a bit longer as I need to fix a couple more game mechanics/balance things first.

It only counts the time you spend in game.

Hello,

First i want to thank the developper for this very promising game he made. I'm looking forward the final release :)

For those of us who have it on gamersgate, what would be the timeframe for the new version to show?

Thank you!

That is awesome. I would also like to know about the feats. Will we have more of them later?

Yes, there will be plenty more feats.

Hi Styg!

Can we open old saved games with this new build??

The 90 minutes are "real life" minutes?

I mean, If I want more stuff from the merchant I'll have to leave the game on for all this time?

Keep up the great work!

Cheers
