EXPERIMENTAL BUILD (0.3.26.0)

The primary changes are combat auto-balancing (monster levelling) and a new difficulty gameplay setting, hero AI so they use their abilities when not selected, and the addition of minimap location markers for all campaign quests.

We've confirmed that Sandbox is brutal (but not impossible) in this experimental patch following community feedback. We'll resolve this for the next patch, but for now you can turn down the difficulty level under gameplay settings.

Where can I get it?

Known Issues
  • Some Goblin buildings had incorrect pivots (especially the farm), and may need adjusting if level designers have used them in their maps
  • Scruplez and the Toadkin Sage aren’t fully implemented as they lack their ranged attack code. They have been added to facilitate the rollout of the next stage of the campaign

Developer Comments
Enemies now have their challenge level set when first emerging from the fog of war. It is now much more important to use hero abilities and potions. If it’s too difficulty, dropping the difficulty down from normal to easy will reduce the challenge level.

SubQuestLocator nodes in workbench are intended to update the position value on StartSubQuest nodes, and replace most cases where MinimapDecal nodes were previously used. Both the magnifying icon next to sub quests in the UI and the minimap decal are now set together. Please see the Shirebrook scripts for implementation examples.

As your heroes get higher, untrained military units that fail to keep up are going to become more squishy. It is therefore important to give these units combat experience to gain levels, craft better gear, and brew health potions at the Herbalist Den.

The construction kit pieces have been deprecated (still there but hidden so no existing maps break), and new modular building exterior pieces added that snap. Please see the tavern exterior in the sandbox Haven map for an example of how to use them.

Known Issues
When entering and exiting dungeons a lot, sometimes the fog of war will become impenetrable. To resolve this, please save your game, exit to the main menu, and load in the save. Please let us know in the forum if you experience this as we’ve not managed to recreate it during QA.

When entering Bonefinger’s Lair, sometimes grass from the previous map can be left over. It’s purely a visual glitch, and can be resolved for now by saving and loading.

Some minimap location markers are re-appearing after quests have been completed.

Developer Comments
We’ve moved the location of streaming audio assets which will make this patch larger than usual.

EXPERIMENTAL BUILD (0.3.24.2)

The primary changes are the ability to visualize the navmesh both in the Editor and in the player (very useful for level design), and the addition of the character activation animations system so that skeletons etc. can climb out of the ground when approached instead of standing around.

Fix: Stopped grass moving around significantly when the navmesh changes (e.g. when a building is placed)

Developer Comments
When viewing the navmesh in the editor, it might not always be up to date. Moving an object with a navmesh cut on it will force an update. Alternatively, save and reload the level. Where the navmesh appears to be more opaque, this usually means you have overlapping navmeshes which is bad and can lead to pathfinding issues.

When using the activation animations system, currently only the Skeleton prefabs in the Withering Dead character kit have animations, and the kobolds. We’ll be adding more in coming patches.

Overview


Both the Gladefolk and Withering Dead storylines are now playable from start to end, albeit in a rough first pass. Much of the work has focused on extending Workbench, the visual scripting editor to support the functionality required by campaign.


Heroes receive ability targeting including AOE circles and directional arcs, making it easier to see which monsters will be affected. Lilith the necromancer is now unlockable in the campaign by siding with the Withering Dead. Units can now also move short distances to engage in melee combat, reducing instances of them standing around while a battle rages just a few feet away.


The 'Needs Wall' (especially noticable with basic clothing and mead) has been addressed. Unhappiness is much slower to set in, is capped, and can be offset by doing well in other areas or through the use of rationing. Rationing now has a lagging effect. While the UI looks the same, indicators have been added to the rationing bars to indicate whether happiness is rising or falling. The yellow warnings have also been removed as they were a distraction.


The key binding UI is now implemented under the settings menu, especially useful for players with non-English layout keyboards (e.g. Sweden, France). Controls have changed slightly to be better aligned with RTS conventions. Holding down the middle mouse button and moving the mouse now pans the camera. Rotation has been remapped entirely off the mouse and onto Q+E or the LeftAlt key.


The tutorial has been completely remade across two entirely new maps (including a short dungeon) to cover many of the new gameplay elements. The narrator voice over has been omitted for the time being as we'll be adding to the tutorial in future patches.


The Editor, and more specifically Workbench (the built-in visual scripting tool), continues to grow in power with new node additions and general improvements. Several new kits have been added and will be used in the next campaign faction storylines. New content assets continue to be added which we'll be using as we continue to expand the campaign.

EXPERIMENTAL BUILD (0.3.22.0)

The primary changes are an overhaul of happiness calculations to address the needs wall for clothing and mead, selected units (e.g. heroes) can move small distances to engage in combat instead of standing around, and the Gladefolk and Withering Dead campaigns are now playable - albeit in rough form - from start to end.

Where can I get it?

Known Issues
  • After a few hours play with a busy village, the frame rate may start slowing down. If you experience this, to restore performance save your game, quit, restart and reload your game.

  • Bonefinger does no damage.

  • We’re in the process of implementing spell tomes for Lilith. For now, opening her inventory will show a solid white icon in her hands. Please ignore this.

Developer Comments
The first rough pass of both the Gladefolk and Withering Dead campaigns is now available. Emphasis on the word ‘rough’. Bosses, enemy heroes and behemoths are missing their abilities, visual and sound effects. Monsters don’t currently scale their levels so the challenge may not be balanced.

There’s a lot of running back and forth in the campaign at the moment. This is where the world map will come into play in a future patch.

EXPERIMENTAL BUILD (0.3.21.0)

A list of characters and supported animations will be published at a later date, as it is still subject to considerable change.

EXPERIMENTAL BUILD (0.3.20.0)

The primary change is an overhaul of keymappings and camera control to follow RTS conventions. Holding down the middle mouse button and dragging now pans. This is going to throw active players off in the short term, and will require a period of adjustment.

Breaking Changes:
A number of loot items have been renamed for consistency. If you have referenced any items in chests/crates/pots etc, these may now show up as missing in the Editor Inspector. It is recommended you check your chests and destructibles.

Known Issues:
The crane is missing from the top of the Stonecutter Lodge
Willow sometimes gets stuck in the Goblin Village in the Sandbox (Medium) map - casting heal should release her
Ser Gregory’s Power Slam sometimes is out of range and won’t cause damage. Moving a little closer to targets will prevent this.
Kobolds in the towers of the kobold village (sandbox map) can’t exit
Zombie Harvesters will sometimes glide into combat

Developer Notes:
The new control system brings us more in-line with RTS convention, but will require a period of adjustment for active players. As combat gets more hectic players will start to see the benefit of having QWERT mapped to hero abilities. Unfortunately we’ve not had time to implement the keyboard remapping UI yet, but you can always edit the keymap.json file to suite your needs.

The new tutorial takes a very different tone to the dryness of the previous incantation. It’s very much tongue in cheek. We’re not recording voice over for it for a while, because the tutorial will be subject to change.

For level designers, there are several key improvements. The addition of the WorldText node allows in-world text to be displayed. Very useful for providing players with hints - check out the new tutorial kobold mines map to see how it’s used, especially on doors. The improved loot item search system now allows deeper access to the 750+ items we have. We’re working on a reference guide to list all available icons, and will release it once Workbench receives the ability to script the creation of magic items.

EXPERIMENTAL BUILD (0.3.19.0)

This is an update to the experimental opt-in build. The primary change is a continuation of the campaign, especially for the Gladefolk.

Please note, save games created with earlier versions are not compatible with this release.

We have re-enabled the unobtrusive Steam DRM to help reduce piracy. This requires that you have Steam running locally on your machine (which can be run in offline mode if you have no internet connection).

Where can I get it?

Known Issues
It’s currently possible to do quests in the wrong order.

Developer Notes:
* StoreCharacter has a valid context of the current script only. To reference a variable from one script in another, use StoreGlobalCharacter. It is best practice to use StoreCharacter, StoreBool and StoreNumber in prefabs or groups so that they can be duplicated.

** Changes to PortalEntry allow for multiple entry points into a map. Index could be 0 and 1, but the display name is “Bonefinger’s Lair” for both.
