A LOT of server and client optimizations in before the next MMO beta wave (1.1.3.1)

Hey everyone,

Once again we want to thank our community for helping us to develop our game! Due to recent load tests that were performed along with our community members, we’ve managed to find some code that was not optimal. Fixing these code parts resulted in a significant server performance boost that can vary from 10% to 25%!

We’ve also implemented one of the highly-requested features by our community - an observe mode that can be used while running.


Patch notes (ver. 1.1.3.1):
New features and tweaks:
  • Implemented new Observe mode that can be enabled by hitting F3 (by default). You can now see terrain tiles altitude and block status while moving.
  • Buildings that were destroyed by decay or by siege damage now destroy all movable object on/inside those buildings. Items that were inside those buildings and movable containers are being dropped into ruins, but partially lost during collapse.
  • Server admins can now setup telnet remote connection to their server console by typing telnetSetParameters(#port#, "fullAccessPass", "readOnlyPass");
  • Updated wooden keep model

Bug fixes:
  • Managed to achieve a significant server side performance boost
  • Fixed a couple of model collision meshes to be more adequate
  • Fixed an overpowered “lance-slashing” combat technique that resulted in enormous amounts of damage
  • Creating screenshots should no longer slightly freeze your client

P.S. We’re still working hard with MMO bugs and fixes along with a new Guilds system that took us a bit longer than we’ve expected, to make it work properly. We hope that in a few weeks we will be ready to start wave #1 of the beta tests. Thanks for your patience and support!

About This Game

Life is Feudal: Your Own is a truly hardcore sandbox RPG with captivating survival aspects. Described as a real life Medieval simulator, which caters for up to 64 players on a 3km x 3km gameworld, any and all paths are an option.

Included in your purchase, all Life is Feudal:YO owners will receive one character to gain full access to Life is Feudal:MMO - coming soon.

LiF:YO places you in a realistic feudal setting with the ability to host your own private world and set your own rules to suit your playstyle. There’s an in depth crafting system, a range of building features, and free terraforming across the map - meaning you can build your own house anywhere in the world. Team up with your friends and build a village or city and repel attacks by other players who want to ransack your lands!

The unique combat system is non-target and physics-based; the direction of your attack depends on mouse movement. Basic movements and directional attacks can be combined to create deadly combos with special harmful effects. Battle formations are also a new way to collaborate and control the situation on the battlefield with your fighting team. Co-operation and a good strategy within a formation will help you prevail against the enemy.

Everything is tweakable and unique to you, including how your character progresses. The skill and stat cap system allows you to design a character moulded to fit your style perfectly, for example. Even alchemy is unique; all recipes are randomized for each character thus the only way to learn is by experimentation.

Features

Unique Features:
  • Free Terraforming & Tunnel Building. 100% free terraforming and tunnel building means you can dig tunnels, mines and moats and expand them in all dimensions barely without limit! You can raise and lower ground levels with a landfall effect. Substances include soil, rock, granite, ore veins, clay, sand, and much more
  • Battle Formation System. Strategize for massive battles and provide your units with certain bonuses with the formation system. Keep organised and inside the formation shape to continue to reap the benefits
  • Unique Alchemy Combinations. There are over 40,000,000 alchemy combinations unique to each player! You need to learn, experiment and create your very own unique combinations. Complementing the hardcore feel of the game, alchemy is not simply a matter of character skill as it strongly emphasises spending time and resources on creating good recipes and combinations
  • Full Seasonal Weather System. Much like in real life, LiF features seasonal weather that directly affects your life in this feudal world
  • Complex Food & Cooking System. Cooking is no longer a secondary or non-existent skill. Being a good cook who knows many complex and tasty recipes means that you and your friends will be better fed and will receive skill bonuses
  • Realistic Player Damage System. Based on human anatomy, with fractures and bleeding wounds, you can create unique and deadly combat tactics
  • Double Health & Stamina Bars. Double health and stamina bars represent better information about the status of your body. Players can be knocked unconscious or killed. They can also be temporarily out of breath or totally exhausted
These are only a handful of the many features that make Life is Feudal:Your Own unique and true to life in a Medieval world. With hundreds of personal choices and customizations on offer to create endless combinations, your imagination will be your only limitation.

This game focus on creating a realistic environemnt which is the ultimate objective of an RPG game. There are many details like moving built objects and interacting with the environement in many many many ways that make thsi game really special. Another great aspect is the social.. I've been playing on an RP - PVP server and I can say the combination between not feeling to secured and not beeing ♥♥♥♥♥ constantly is very good. Yes buy it. Do it, you won't regreat it!

Really good game to play with friends. Best medieval survival game currently with awesome combat that requires lots of skill. Don't let the tutorial scare you away, I know its overhelming at the start but this game is really unique and you will have to find a lot of info on the internet to learn the game.
This game takes lots of time and effort, don't play it if you dont have lots of time to play.

This game right here has came along way from what they have started with, I got my basic hours in, and man i couldnt be more happy with this game, Honestly well money spent, But on a bigger note this game is a huge learning curve to new players, and I mean HUGE cure. But all in all this is one pretty badass game.

Honestly, at this point, it's hard to not recommend because it's so... bland. The game COULD turn into a game I've ALWAYS wanted - a medieval RPG with a player run economy, politics, and world. That appears to be the vision, but it stumbles in execution. I have two underlining problems with the game.

1. the amount of time it takes to make things. Don't get me wrong, I understand where the devs are coming from. I think they're taking a similar approach to EVE Online, where acquiring new licenses for certain ships took literal YEARS to do. And that's fine. But it's pretty dull to sit there and watch my character take 3 minutes to cook a fish. That's literally half the time it takes me to cook a fish IRL. As the game stands, I feel like I need a book to entertain me while whatever is going on in the game takes its time to finish. It sounds like part of what they're going to do in the MMO is create mini games for everything to fill the time in, and that might help, but I still think taking 10 minutes to do anything meaningful is too long. The purpose of the game should be survival and construction, and you don't need to create mechanics that cause you to spend every moment of your free time to accomplish the most base tasks. The time spent should be spent on making things truly epic.
2. The game seems pretty empty. You walk into any town, and it is empty. Empty homes, empthy trading posts, empty "schools" - all the building are there only for aesthetics, with no real reason to exist. At the very least, being able to fill them with furniture would be nice. At the most, the furniture you fill it with should all serve some function. And all of this compounds problem 1. What point is there in spending 10 real life hours to build my first humble shack when there's no real purpose to it? I guess if you're into things like legos, and you enjoy building things because it's fun to accomplish something, than this might suit you. But I play games because they're interactive and allow me to do things I wouldn't normally be able to do IRL.

So we'll see, maybe the promised MMO will fix those two issues. But as it stands, I didn't really have fun in this game and don't recommend it.

Do not ignore the bad reviews. Do not listen fully to the good reviews, then again, do not listen fully to the bad reviews. Just listen to what everyone has to say before you made your choice. This game is bad. Not awful, just bad. It has so much to do, and so much to see. You'll find yourself for hours looking to build more and more and meet more and more people. Die trying as well. Regardless. I had my mouse inverted (who even does that anymore?) a screen glitch before I could begin the game, the reward to work ratio is awful, and it needs alot of overhaul. It needs new eyes. I feel like the devs focused on their own ideas too much and ignored what the players had to say. That and they have no idea how to bug fix, either that or there are far too many for them to fix. I do however, realise that there are a few really talented people on the dev team who are for the most part not getting enough work in. Ugh, I don't know where to start with this game. I'm kinda going off, but I'm so dissapointed. I had such high hopes, but its too much of a sh*t storm for me to play. I hope if you read this, that you won't be strayed away by little ol' me. Seriously though. Why is it so bad? Just one of those things.

My first life, in Life is Feudal: Your Own
(My life was feudal, it was my own)

Spawned.
Walked a bit.
Ate cookies.
Saw a guild in global chat, decided to look for them in the South.
Met up with a wanderer called Thorbjorn, travelled with him to The South.
We got hungry and tried hunting a boar.
It rekt us, and I fell into a hole with spikes and glitched into a jumping animation.
Relogged.
We decided not to hunt the boar.
Mysterious man on horseback appeared. He was silent.
Then another appeared. He started rambling and calling us mortals.
His name was Reaper. He was asked me if I was strong, I said yes. We dueled and I died.
Reaper said return to him for gifts.
I returned and found my companion.
Reaper gave us horses, armour, farming tools, weapons and food.
Me and Thorbjorn made a camp not too far from Reaper's fortress.
We got raided by The Kingdom of the North. All our supplies....gone....
We told Reaper's gang, they were on our side. Then we told the Kingdom of the South.
The South let us join, then we got free houses and I became a farmer.

This was my first time playing LiF and it was quite the adventure.
A great RPing game, with good community, and survival aspects.
If you don't mind lots and lots of hardwork, it the best medieval survival game on the market.

Don't listen to the mixed reviews, if you have people to play with then it's a very fun and good game. It's the most in-depth survival game I have ever seen and I haven't even done everything yet. The combat mechanics are solid, there are a few odd bugs but other than that I have very much been enjoying my time with this masterpiece.

Posted: August 8
Lets get this game back on track....

Reduce terraforming speed drasticaly (By 80%)
Make the progression overall quite a bit faster, afterall this is Your Own.
Keep in mind devs, you really need to find the right balance of work vs reward, right now it is so over the limit of work ther eis no real reward because most people can not handle that much work.

I built a lot in this game, and seen a lot. Please consider carefully weather or not you want to have a community ever again, listen to the players, they are who the game is for right?

I highly recommend this game, its gots some bugs which still need to be ironed out such as the Memory Leak and random crashing but this is still in Alpha and these items ARE being addressed by the Devs as they work on the MMO, which I'm sure these type of fixes will be applied simultaneously to both versions. This game provides a nice balance of Survival/Builder/PVP Slasher all rolled up into one package, think Rust/ARK + Chilvarly/Mount & Blade/War of the Roses All rolled up into one grand Mediaval Simulator.

Spent 700 hours hitting the ground with a sickle, all for someone roleplaying as a viking to tell me I have the haircut of a lesbian and then beat the ♥♥♥♥ out of me and steal all my secret herbs and spices.

Ive played this now for 54 hours and owned it for a week if that, I looked at the mixed reviews and figured that this game was another one of those Kickstarter scams. For years I thought this until my friend played it,

This game isnt the COD/Chivalry sort of game. It wont appeal to everyone and I advise to watch a few lets plays.
This game is complicated in comparison to most games being released today and I love it.

Would recommend this especially with the MMO coming out, hopefully it will fill that void I lost when Ultima Online went down that dark path.
