February 2

Build 2118 - Stability, Official Modded Server, TDM Maps and More

Hey Folks!

A small build to ease into February - it's going through the build server now and should be out on all platforms within the hour.

As mentioned in the January Round Up, we've been looking into the crashes that have been happening for the last few builds, and working on some minor content changes.

The Official Modded Server was also put into beta in the USA - this build should make it the same colour in the list as the rest of the official servers. We'll be opening up a thread next week to get feedback on it, talk through any issues and start sourcing new mods for it now that it seems to be working - particularly mods compatible with the custom heads mod!

This build has a tentative fix for a nasty memory corruption bug that was causing occasional issues with deltas, as well as crashing servers on join if certain conditions were met. We hope to see improvements to server stability, and we'll be monitoring it in the weeks to come.

There have also been changes to the TDM map cycle - a few smaller changes as well as 3 new maps.

Dichotomy - one half of the map is randomly closed off each round.

Pressure Cooker - The map slowly floods from outside in, forcing players to engage.

Craggy Outlook - Cliffs overlook a central treasure trove with randomly selected entrances.


As a result of community feedback, sponges are now 15 coins in CTF, as they weren't seeing much use.

The "Mines Not Showing Activated on Join" bug may also be fixed, but this needs more attention - if it's not fixed this time around it'll need a reimplementation of how the animation is synced.

Last but not least, Norill has received his honorary special head for service through the THD intern program.
Congratulations Norill, and thanks for your work!

Have Fun,
Max

Full Changelog: [added] New RTDM maps + fixed some "bugs" in old ones [fixed?] mines not showing activated on join (issue with cmds vs sync(), if not fixed might need reimplementation) [modified] sponge is 15 coins [fixed] memory corruption due to race condition on join [added] USA modded server to official server list [added] norill head (king of horses) - congrats

Steam Trading Cards come to King Arthur's Gold!

Good News, Everyone!

We've been working over the holidays to bring you something people have been hanging out for since the release of achievements!

As some of you have already noticed, Steam Trading Cards support has been added to King Arthur's Gold. The set includes:

  • 6 Trading Cards
  • the usual 5+1 Badges
  • 6 Backgrounds
  • 10 (!) Emoticons.

First, a warning: the Cards and Backgrounds share art - and are probably the most boring part of the content. We only have incredibly-tiny-pixel-assets to work from, and the required sizes are enormous by comparison. Sorry in advance to anyone who was hanging out for 1080p pixel tapestries, but this was one aspect of the system we simply didn't have the time for.


The badges are all unique, new art with a KAG-themed progression - all the way from humble, wooden beginnings to a glorious victory, with King Arthur's Gold still being conspicuously missing from the game. We all know the real gold is the friends we made along the way, right? Guys?

Anyway, we're very happy with how they turned out and hope to see some of you displaying them soon!

Those who don't mind spoilers can see the badges over here! Those who do can collect them for themselves and feel smug, whatever floats your boat!


The Emoticons have been faithfully ported from the game, with a few touch-ups to make them fit with the dark chat and community background. We tried to pick the most widely-usable and fun faces. As animation was not allowed, you'll have to unlock the and emotes separately. I know, I know, the injustice, but that's just the way the system works.

We're keen to know what you think of them, so hit us up in the comments and get collecting!

Have fun,
Max

“No other game allows you to build a castle, actively fight off invaders, and then jump onto a catapult to be flung over the walls of your rival’s castle to claim its inner sanctum as your own.”
