FEATURES
  • Unlocked southern map section. New content and factions!
  • General performance improvement with Ogre 2.0
  • Smuggling is now a career option. Buy narcotics or illegal goods and sell them wherever they are illegal to make huge profits. (You'll have to find where to buy/sell them yourself).
  • Added narcotics production to the tech tree
  • Tweaked the camera limit so you can look upwards a little more
  • A messagebox now tells you what item caused you to get arrested for smuggling
  • Added some feedback arrows to stealth mode
  • Added options setting for displaying the floating damage numbers

  • COMBAT:
    • Unarmed combat added.
    • Added a block for "thrust" direction, so you can now block unarmed and animal attacks
    • Added dodging to the combat system. You dodge when unarmed, and it can also be used to break out of stun-lock states
    • Characters now have rear-direction block animations
    • Made block animation blending look a little nicer
    • Added a few more combat stance animations for different weapons
    • Armour can now have skill bonuses for unarmed, dodge, and fist damage.
    • Backpacks now negatively impact dodging
    • Characters can no longer attack with their broken arms, they have to resort to kicks or whatever they can do
    • Likewise if your sword arm is broken you can't block, so you'll have to resort to dodging
    • Defensive combat mode now applies the +20 bonus to dodging if you are unarmed

  • EFFECTS:
    • Tweaked the formula for character muscle visibility. Its no longer affected by strength (which now only affects bulk) or toughness. The idea is to make characters end up looking a bit different to each other based on their skills (as opposed to everyone just ending up big and muscular)
    • --the new formula is: max(dexterity, martialArts) * 3.f + (athletics + swimming) - (cooking + science);
    • It now gets wet when it rains.
    • Added sound effect for barefoot characters

  • GAME BALANCE:
    • Increased amount of food sold in bars

    • Duststorms strongly affect visibility and hearing range, and prevent tracking by smell
    • Rain affects visibility and hearing range a small amount
    • Certain clothing can protect you from the elements. Goggles are good in dust storms.

  • Some fine-tuning for stealthy raids:
    • NPC hear range is halved when you are indoors and they are not (or vise-versa). Range is halved again if the door is closed
    • alarm range is halved, and gets halved again if you are indoors, and then halved again if the buildings door is closed
    • stealth knockouts take into account your visibility more, and you can't knockout someone if they are in combat unless they are totally unaware of you
    • Tweaked the follow AI for escaping slaves/prisoners so if you make a run for it they will keep up rather than stay behind trying to fight everyone
    • guards standing outside of a building will no longer keep the door open
    • shopkeepers won't talk to you if you are an enemy
  • CONSTRUCTION SET:
    • The construction set now has a "translation mode" for using to translate the dialogue
    • Automatically fills out duplicated translation lines (eg if there are 30 different lines that say "ok" then you only need to translate it once instead of 30 times)
