Barony V3.1.6 Update Is Out! Achievements and More Workshop!

Hi All,

All 60 new achievements are now available for achieving in the main client!

We've also merged our workshop features into the main branch so all users will have access to this by default.

V3.1.6 Workshop Changelog
  • Added models to workshop support to replace existing assets. To add models to a mod file, place the new file into the blank /mods/YOUR_MOD/models/ directory where appropriate (monsters go in models/creatures, boulders go in models/decoration etc). Keep the name the same as the original you are replacing and it'll be overwritten when you start modded game.
    • You can replace the filenames the game looks for in the mods/YOUR_MOD/models/models.txt file, however this is not cross compatible with other mods modifying the model files, so bear that in mind.
    • New guide updated for custom model in Barony:
    https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1383197562

  • Added books to workshop support. To add books to a mod file, place the new YOURBOOK.txt file into the blank /mods/YOUR_MOD/books/ directory. Each .txt file in this books directory will extend the amount of books present in the game and will automatically generate naturally in the world. Inside the .txt file just needs to be the text of your book.

  • Added sounds/music to workshop support. To add these to a mod file, place new files in the mods/YOUR_MOD/sound or mods/YOUR_MOD/music directory. Format must be .ogg files. For sounds - the same as models, you can choose to change the mods/YOUR_MOD/sound/sounds.txt file to change the filenames being looked for but is not cross compatible with other mods.
    • Music filenames are fixed so you can only replace the filenames seen in the normal music folder.

  • Added tiles (walls/ground textures etc) to workshop support. To add these to a mod file, place new files in the mods/YOUR_MOD/images/tiles/ folder. Modifying these essentially is a texture pack!

V3.1.6 Game Changelog
  • Added /brawlermode command for the new Brawler achievement to avoid accidentally using banned weapons (fists and throwing potions only, consuming other items is permitted).
  • Added nicknames from winners of the Screenshot Contest to the random player name pool.
  • Steam achievements are disabled if any modded map content is found, things like models/sounds will not affect this. A warning in the lower right of the screen will inform if achievements are disabled.
  • Humans no longer pick up dropped magicstaffs as they don't equip them.
  • NPCs now will wait 5 seconds before picking up a player-dropped item to avoid accidental theft of a dropped item.
  • Thrown items can now be caught mid-air by players with right click or alternately bound use key. Includes Tomahawks/Daggers/Chakrams/Shurikens.
  • Swamp Temple secret is now 100% spawn chance instead of 50%. Matches the other secret level occurrence rate with special loot.
  • Added 'Use Previous Character" button to the character select screen to quickly jump back into your previous created character's name, sex, race and class. Sends you to the single/multiplayer select screen.
  • "Boots of Speed" achievement now requires killing either boss instead of reaching the credits sequence.
  • Added confirmation window when deleting scores in the statistics screen.
  • Added new higher resolution editor sprites courtesy of Discord user Nubbie.
  • Added extended help in the Editor explaining controls and tools, accessible via H hotkey or in the HELP menu dropdown.
  • Rebinding right click to 'cast spell' no longer disables in-game menus and other UI breakages.
  • Fixed Skeletons spamming sound when waking from sleep.
  • Cleaned up some missing sound files and replacing with appropriate null.ogg file to prevent game logs being spammed with some missing audio messages.

This update is a rather large change to the way we handle files for Workshop support as well as a whole lot of game adjustments for new achievements, so please report any bugs you see here. There is also the Workshop thread here if you'd like any help with getting started with Barony's workshop.

Don't stop achievin', hold on to that feeling!

Upcoming V3.1.6 Update: New Achievements and Extended Workshop Support

Hi all,

You might have noticed some new Steam achievements pop up on the Barony page a couple days ago. These aren't obtainable in-game yet, but we are working on releasing V3.1.6 of the game client which will implement ways to obtain all 60 new achievements! We're aiming to get this update out within a few days.

In addition, this update will extend Barony's Workshop support to include custom models, tiles, sound and music files, as well as in-game books.

And as always there'll be a couple QoL and bugfixes bundled as well to look forward to.

Cheers,

Ben

About This Game

Barony is a 3D, first-person roguelike with cooperative multiplayer that brings back the cryptic and intricate designs of classic roguelikes such as Nethack and melds them with RPGs like Ultima Underworld, System Shock, and Daggerfall. Challenge is the calling card of this hard-boiled dungeon-crawler.

Features


  • Gameplay inspired by RPG classics like Ultima Underworld, System Shock, & Daggerfall
  • Roguelike mechanics such as perma-death, random dungeons, cryptic messages, and more
  • Meticulously narrated action that mimics the insane events one could expect to find in games like Nethack
  • A complex yet intuitive drag & drop interface to manage items and character stats
  • Cooperative multiplayer for up to 4 players over internet or LAN (includes Steam and direct-IP connections)
  • Hundreds of unique collectible items and loot, including several rare and mystical artifacts
  • Chock-full of secret areas, special levels, developer easter eggs, and more
  • Bundled level editor, exposed assets, and simple file formats for easy hacking, modding & tinkering

The Story So Far


Barony tells the story of an undead lich named Baron Herx, who terrorized the town of Hamlet in a previous life and is now holding out in a vast subterranean complex known as the Devil's Bastion. As a single hero or a group of adventurers, it is your mission to descend the depths of his abode, confront him in his hellish lair, and destroy him forever. Whether you will simply meet your doom in the dungeons as many have before you or rise to victory against the Baron and his hellspawn is ultimately up to you.
