We made it! This month's update finally brings Sir's multiplayer out of the murky swamps of beta and into the harsh glaring light of general consumption. You no longer need to opt-in to the multiplayer beta branch to see multiplayer games as an option in your game. The new front-end launcher will appear for all up-to-date owners and hopefully this will provide us with a fresh influx of players to your servers and a growth in the number of servers themselves!
Importantly, we need to say a huge "thank you" from the team to everyone who participated in the beta, filing bugs and making suggestions both here and on the BR forums.
It's been a long road from single-player prototype, through Kickstarter, Steam Early Access, Single player 1.0 and beyond and now that the multiplayer component of Sir is stable and live and all those promised stretchgoals are met (phew!) we can finally take a step back and appreciate the journey. A journey we could not have made without you guys. So thanks!
As well as the new launcher, there are a range of optimisations and bugfixes: this 1.0 release adds the ability to trade directly with other players rather than use loot stashes to swap items. Players can make their inventories available for access by other players by holding down the "o" key (by default) until someone accesses their loot. Once a trade has been established players may freely GIVE items to each other but they may not TAKE items. This means that trade is never open to exploitation. You only get what the other player trading with you gives, there can be no stealing!
So this is it! Sir, You are Being Hunted is feature complete, but it's not the end. We are already working on a patch for the Singleplayer game to bring across all the improvements that have come about in multiplayer and of course we are still reading your feedback with great interest. The hunt continues...
We'll see you on the servers.
Firstly - as has become something of a standard for these updates - we've got a new NPC for you: the Scarecrow. His uniquely-creepy presence has been missed so it's great to see his return. Watch your back... Live on the Steam builds right now.
Now that the compliment of NPC types has reached 6 (!) we thought it was about time to give server admins some control over what you are faced with in any given game, also how many and when they appear. To whit we've brought over the NPC schedule manager from single-player and now you can tinker 'til your heart's content. Want a world filled to the brim with poachers from the get-go? No problem. How about no balloons EVER. Easily done. Or maybe you just want more of everything? Well, then you're clearly unsound... Whatever your preferences, the new NPC settings will let you create bot populations to suit.
We've also got world seeds working so you can now copy and save worlds that you like. Generated a particularly breathtaking Mountain biome you just HAVE to show a chum? Just copy the seed from the escape menu and pass it on. Remember, only server admins have access to the world generation and NPC settings. Use “#callvote makeadmin playername” in the chat window to start a vote for a new admin on servers that allow this.
There are also the usual tweaks and fixes, some of which are direct responses to payer requests (that stones timer volume WAS too loud wasn't it...), others are things we've had on the list for a while and have finally gotten around to now we're approaching an official v1.0 release...
Not long now!
