Client changes:
Normal and specular mapping have been added:
Normal mapping is a system aimed at giving items a more 3d look, simulatings depth and shadows without requiring vast amounts of work by the GPU or CPU. This has been added to many areas of the game, including terrain, trees, houses and several items. Over time more normal maps will be added until everything is done, but it's a big process!

Specular mapping is a system that determines how "shiny" an object is, and is used on certain features such as clay, and marble pavement/housing. More will be added as time goes on!
Both these features are disabled by default incase of any systems that cannot handle them, they can be enabled via the settings under advanced graphics "use normal mapping".
The modern renderer is now an available option:
To enable the modern renderer, in the launcher settings (not ingame) go to the graphics tab, and under renderer select Modern, Legacy will be the old renderer.
The modern renderer contains a vast amount of changes and improvements, namely:
  • It can display unlimited amount of lights on the screen (addresses light flickering).
  • Trees and grass should no longer slow the client down on older machines.
  • Performance is overall better than the Legacy renderer.
  • Traditional antialiasing setting does not work with it, use the FXAA postprocess option.
  • New (and future) graphics features and changes will often be only available using the new renderer.
  • Activate keybind will now work in opened inventory container windows
  • Fixed clone characters and creatures
  • Fixed certain items going invisible when placed on another item
  • Fixed the image-in-image issue in caves
  • Fixed emissive models showing through trees
  • Fixed phantom tree collision after crossing a server
  • Fixed invisible/flickering players and objects
  • Grass will now fade in instead of just appearing tile by tile.
  • Fixed a visual issue with Oakshell casts on players.
  • Fixed fish a
    ppearing to be above water.
  • Fixed oversized flame on certain hanging lamps.
  • Bridge paving will now have correct season textures and normal maps.
  • Fixed items disappearing behind gates
  • Fixed invisible snow fall
  • Fixed certain cases of flickering lighting
  • Note: In order for the modern renderer to function on any graphics card, all options in compatibility must be set to core.
