The Work Done for Possible 1.9.5 Client

Recommended Posts

List last updated: Oct 30, 2016

This is a list of things that have been done for a possible 1.9.5 release of the client later only. There is currently no set date for a client update, this is only for informational purposes and to more easily have a list available when that day should come.


THIS IS AN IN-PROGRESS LIST. More is planned, this is just what's been done (or in the case of maps, some still being worked on but will be done).

Q: When will we have a 1.9.5 release?

A: When it's deemed enough is done to warrant it. Not even radu can answer this question at this time. "No time soon"

* Client updates and bug fixes are already available, if you are able to self-compile from the GIT repository.
(Yes, you are allowed to use a GIT build in the game as it is official code.)

* Client data (such as encyclopedia, graphics, readable books, etc.) that is not in the GIT code, as well as any map changes, will not be available until a new client is actually released.

1.9.4 was released May 8, 2015. This list covers changes made since then. Dates indicate when the commit was made in GIT.


Client Updates (available in GIT):
- Delete Recipe option (Aug 7, 2015)

- Increase length of item list names. Rename item list starts with current name. (Jul 11, 2016)

- Fix for mini-map not displaying shadows and creatures with their dot colour derived from their name. (Only effects some players) (May 11, 2015)

Map Editor bugfixes and changes:
(Yeah, don't expect much here)
- Fine Camera Rotation added: Holding Shift button while rotating camera allows for very fine adjusting of camera angle. (Jan 4, 2016)
- PNG icon file for the map editor added (Nov 5, 2015)
- Hacked-in external C usage fixed to allow the editor to compile properly (May 29, 2015)

Client Data (NOT available for update until new client is released):

- Fix an issue with the continent TAB map not showing when on a handful of guild maps

- Add another minor particle, used on new map changes

- Fixes to 2D graphics (edge and corner pieces of dirt/grass had a nasty line that also appeared, removed the line)

- 23 items getting new inventory/storage images

- One new readable-in-game book added, to be readable in new locations.


Server-side Updates:
- (none yet)

Map Primary Updates:

- A main C2 map has been extensively redone, with drastic changes to both the outside and its many insides, including new insides. (you'll notice it when you see it)
* No further details will be provided, this is something for exploration

- Another main C2 map has had parts of its externals redesigned, and several new additions added to the map (you'll notice it when you see it)
* No further details will be provided, this is something for exploration


- A "big change" to a part of Grubani Peninsula

- A new and dangerous secret location, quite possibly the ultimate "why-didn't-it-exist-before" secret
* No further details will be provided, it's a secret ;-)


- Another new huge cave... serving as host to a spawn among other things


- Glacmor - A small new inside area just for completion sake (the entrance is already visible on Glacmor, just not used)


- Isla Prima - Change made so IP creatures will remain on IP.


- Idaloran - Fenced-in area behind blacksmith (Horea NPC) made to be a Manu School area as it was designed to be.


- For pear hunters, many more changes to "unhide" harvestable items hidden inside walls/caves, and as well items removed from no-harv spots where possible, increases possibility of finding pear on many frustrating maps (most of these changes are listed in minor fixes below).


- EXTENSIVE work done on location information (info seen when clicking the compass). Much more detailed and correct info.


- EXTENSIVE work done on entrances and map changes and such, so character aims more for where it's heading when an item is clicked.

- Reduction of trees, bushes, and other various items in order to reduce lag/grue issues and/or increase ranging potential (without changing the map purpose or general design) on several maps. KJ, WVF, MM, Zirak, and more.


- Cleanup of lighting on various maps as determined to have too much lighting. Very little noticeable effect to players, but reducing the lights where they're overdone also reduces lag.

Since there are only three main C2 maps you haven't listed individually, I assume that two of these three are the ones that you have "extensively redone" and "had parts of its externals redesigned". If the "extensively redone" one is the one that I think it is (and I think it is, from your description "drastic changes to both the outside and its many insides, including new insides"), I just want to ask you to keep the roller coaster, but make it walkable, and make it so that if one clicks on a cave entrance where the track enters a cave, then one ends up popping up on another part of the 'coaster.


Of course, if the "extensively redone" map isn't the one that I think it is, then my request makes no sense, so just ignore it.

Already thought of that... the minor fix list can include the two mentioned major change maps. ;-) I wouldn't make it that simple, hehe.


Any maps not mentioned probably will be by the time all the work is done, it just means I haven't gotten to them. That's a lot of maps to go through.

(But whichever they are, the changes were primarily determined by Acelon with only some suggestions or ideas I had as we discussed them last year getting included with his approval. I'm just doing the actual work on them, so not something I can change by myself.)

Can we have icons for EEE and chicken feathers PLEASE? So annoying to grab and get wrong ones. I had so many EEEs at one point I grabbed them by mistake and died in invasion due to not having any EEs. I just dump them as fast as I make them now.

There's a hope to get some new storage images in. A few even worked on. So hopefully yes, assuming Roja approves them.

Through a massive cleanup of the server-side (def) files, something finally got done that people have complained about for the entirety of the game but nothing got done about it...


Compass clicks will give actual location info, both inside and out, on every official map.


Having done this, I fully understand why noone did it before. Even had to write a script to check all the location info to ensure it was done correctly. Plus working with square locations on non-square map areas wasn't always simple, heh. Took a couple weeks to get through every map... granted I was working on other stuff for each map at the same time.


But it's done, so location info will make more sense in the next release. (Secret areas will of course only provide very vague text at best.)

Are there any suggestions for the client that could be coded implanted at this time? And yes, I am asking about sub categories for the item list, but I am sure there are other add on's that would be nice too.

Implementing the last 4 achievement medallions requires an update to some client file(s). It would be nice to see that get finished in the next client update.

Is the artwork for them already available? Otherwise that light be the biggest problem.

(And: could you list the 4 missing medallions?)

Yes, you can see them in the file \textures\Achievements01.dds.. I talked with Radu about it months ago, and he said the only thing holding it up was some file change that had to be made during a client update. They are Harvesting, Engineering and Tailoring tutorials... and I don't remember off the top of my head what the 4th one is.

The client is bluap's area, I just do maps. He'd have to respond to this.

Contacted radu to find out what it is that needs to be done.





For best results, please don't use this thread to suggest new stuff. It'll get messy very quickly. Use new threads for new suggestions and bugs, they're easier to keep track of that way. This thread was started to keep track of what's been done, and show players that there are things being done.

Would it be possible to remove all the rules translations for the next client?

The current translations are hopelessly outdated (I think some are from before rule 5 was "no multiplay"...).


Ideally we would put in up-to-date versions, but for that we'll need to find translators..

That should probably be discussed with Aislinn and/or Radu on what should be done about them.


Then when something's decided, take it to Sir_Odie, he's been heading the data files.

Looks like Odie has handled this.

Achievements are being set up, should be available in 1.9.5.






Quite a few new inventory/storage images have been done as well. No more carrot for a vial mold, no more cabbage for a conglomerate, big chickens get their own feather instead of sharing hawk's... and you can guess what this is...





Many others also getting unique images.
