LiF:Your Own 4 Year Anniversary! (1.4.4.4)

Feudalists, we want to celebrate with you - our players - the 4 year anniversary of Life is Feudal Your Own! Exactly four years ago, in September 2014, we pushed the ‘Release’ button on the first game ever developed by Bitbox Ltd. It was five of us sitting day and night in a tiny apartment, preparing the game of our dreams to be presented to you - our players. We want to thank you for staying with us all of this time with 40% off on all ingame skins!

A few words about the patch itself: we have addressed some recent issues that came up with the release of the previous patch, as well as including a working per object access rights setup feature. It is still a little rough around the edges and a bit difficult to use for now, so you can read about how to use it correctly in Your Own here.
Patch Notes (ver. 1.4.4.4):

New Features and Tweaks:
  • Added the ability to setup unmovable object rights
  • You can now reset your keybindings to the default state
  • All newly created worlds are now running ‘Red’ rules by default
  • Players that have entered the Town Claim or Outpost Claim outside of the JH period will be booted out to the border of those claims if they log in during the JH period
  • Default ability preset now depends on the mount state of the player - this means players can have different default abilities while they’re riding the horse, driving the Trader’s Cart or walking
  • Tweaked Flamberge default skin and added some premium skins

Bug Fixes and Optimizations:
  • Shader caching is now working as intended, which should reduce the second (and the following times) of entering the world
  • Fixed shrinking of guild claim on guild monument upgrade
  • Fixed partial invulnerability and inability to act after being knocked down (trampled by enemy, unsaddled while riding the horse etc)
  • Fixed client crash related to the inventory GUI
  • Updated the offset of drop bags so they no longer disappear in heavily terraformed terrain

The long awaited Life is Feudal: Your Own update, and Franchise Sale on Steam!

Yes, you read the title right! We are so excited to announce our latest Life is Feudal: Your Own update has dropped, filled with new features and tweaks, reworked luck mechanics and battle survival skill tweaks.
To celebrate the occasion, grab 50% off on all items in our two day full franchise sale on Steam in appreciation of your awesome support of Life is Feudal!

Patch Notes (ver. 1.4.0.1):
Important features and tweaks
  • Player owned horses that are left unattended in the world now take longer to decay (2 hours)
  • Reworked three gathering abilities (Search for something Edible, Search for Materials, Search for Herbs). All of these abilities work the same way as the original gathering of alchemy ingredients worked. ‘Targeting’ the tile triggers the visibility of corresponding plants in the area, which you now manually gather
  • Luck effects from different types of sources (jewelry, blessings and 5 ingredient foods) now have separate effect slots and stack separately
  • Movable objects can now be damaged by projectiles without a siege damage attribute
  • You can now rename unmovable objects
  • You can now give names to movable objects on your claimed lands - making your guild items management easier for everyone
  • Movable objects placed inside unmovable objects (warehouses, houses, keeps etc) can no longer be opened, looted or moved during JH raids. We’ve implemented this feature to prevent different types of exploits, which allowed players to squeeze into the warehouses and loot them while defenders were fighting elsewhere.
  • Incomplete buildings and objects now take significantly longer to decay and disappear. You can use the ‘Inspect’ ability on incomplete buildings to see their durability and how soon they will decay and disappear.
  • Reworked all shield visual geometry
  • Players should slip and fall down when they step on top of other players or horses
  • Minimum criminal status duration is now 10 seconds, giving you some time to hit the offender once or twice - make sure not to overdo it!
  • 5-ingredient food is now boosted. Eating complex foods like this will grant you an ‘Inspired work’ and ‘Luck’ effect and the duration of the effects depends on the quality of the food.
  • Resurrection sickness is now twice as long and healing effect duration is shorter, making it better to heal yourself now rather than dying
  • Warnings while looting graves should now work properly and warn you only if you really will lose the alignment upon looting

    --- Luck mechanics reworked---
  • Max luck on a character is now capped at 100 (originally 12)
  • Luck bonus on jewelry is increased 5x- this will only work on newly crafted jewelry
  • Luck bonus from skills at lvl 100 of training are increased up to 10
  • ‘Bless with a God's Love’ luck buff is increased to 8.5 (up to 10 on 100 lvl of the Piety skill)
  • 5-ingredient foods now provide up to 10 luck
  • The chance to craft an exceptional item has increased from 0.01% to 0.1%

  • Updated mature oak tree collisions so they can no longer form an impassable wall
  • Added FoV and Particle Settings to the Video Options of the game
  • Poisons tweaked so that they last longer (2 to 4 minutes) and the overall damage is also higher
  • Weapon tooltips slightly improved
  • Personal timers on horses are now properly ignored during JH

    --- ‘Battle Survival’ skill tweaks ---
  • Added a 60 second cooldown after ‘Fatal Hp Conversion’ proc
  • Skill raise from the ‘Fatal Hp Conversion’ ability was significantly increased
  • Luck now properly affects the chance of doubling the amount of fatal Hard HP damage that is transformed into Soft HP
  • Added a system message when the ‘Fatal Hp Conversion’ is triggered containing the information how luck affected this proc
  • Shields on the back should now properly lose durability upon being hit

    --- Beta Branch---

  • You can now choose between versions of YO that you want to play. If you want to stick to the latest update version, or choose the older one if you prefer. This can be done by right clicking on ‘Life is Feudal’- Properties - Beta.

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.

Current version of LiF:YO DOES NOT include the free Life is Feudal:MMO ticket in it now. Please, purchase it separately here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/700030/Life_is_Feudal_MMO/

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 molded 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.
