Hi everyone !

Update 0.3.2 is now available to download !
This update packs many improvements to existing features, and lays the groundwork for future improvements as well.

Players will be able to store their items in a chest now, there’s a new Character Sheet and Inventory UI. You can now check out your character attributes in detail, complete with tooltips !

 

 

The Resource Opposition System has been improved (see detailed post about this here http://steamcommunity.com/app/424370/discussions/2/208684375414324717/ ) and there’s a new passive blocking mechanic.

 

 

Affix generation for magical items has been improved with better and new prefixes and suffixes, so players should find more varied and interesting items now.

 

 

We also added new audio assets to the game, feature a zombie horde sound. You can expect audio improvements on a regular basis, as audio is being completely redone.

Another good news: it should be the last 8Gb update! We splitted the data into 68 files, so no need to redownload everything every time.

And of course there’s the usual bug fixes and optimizations improvements.
Here is the complete changelog for you to read :

GENERAL:

* New: Player chest ! The player chest is now available in Amarth. You will also find a player chest in the housing furnitures for you to access your gear from your house. The player chest is shared between your characters.
* New: audio assets and audio system, triggering “horde” sound according to the number of enemies around
* Improved: Many of the content has been splitted for better loading times and, in the future, smaller updates. It should be the last 8Gb update! We now have 68 .pak, and we plan to split the data even more.
* Improved: Faster loading times. We once again optimized many files and you should gain a few seconds.
* Fixed: Plants near the river will now only give ferns, so players will always have enough to complete “The Cure” quest.
* Improved: The camera position has been slightly adjusted
* Removed: Halloween event dungeon.
|
UI & VISUALS:
* The ROS has been reworked and the white overlay is now combined with arrows to indicate the current flow direction and bars to delimitate the different costs in the queue. Skills can now have different transferring speed from one resource to the other, and this will help us to balance resource exchanges in the future. Since we haven’t find the right transfert time for each skill yet, you may experience situations were lots of costs queue on the interface (lots of small bars in Umbra or Rage) but this will be fixed in the future.
* Improved: Some particle optimizations (rock polygon count and textures)
* Improved: timing of combo particles
* Improved: Character sheet UI
* Improved: Inventory UI
* Fixed: A player light was disabled when leaving a dungeon
* Fixed: A rare bug when the wrong time of day was loaded in a dungeon (finally!)

HOUSING:
* Modified: [b]Housing is now shared across all your characters. Due to this change, we had to wipe the houses. However, you can retrieve your house by going to Wolcen’s installation folder/user/savegames/ and by renaming your old house file (“YOURCHARACTERNAME_house.xml”) into “House.xml”.[/b]
|
HOUSING ITEMS:
* New: Chests
* New: Two wall cages
* New: Couches
|
AUDIO:
* New: crossbow shooting sounds
* New: sounds for each Ammo type
* New: impact sounds for crossbow
* New: zombie sounds
* New: “hord” sound system triggering different audio according to the number of enemies in an area
* New: Zombie Horde sounds have been configured
* New: Burning Hord sounds have been configured
* Fixed: Ambient sound wasn’t set correctly in game start
* Improved: Ambiance sound in Amarth was too loud and inconsistent, still WIP
|
ANIMATIONS:
* New: Idle_air for Player
|
LOCALIZATION:
* New: CharacterSheet Localization and tooltips, located in the text_ui_player.xml file.
* Fixed: All the “Zombies” strings in the Creatures file weren’t working since the keys were wrong.
* Fixed: issue with the “Key Color” formatting in Dungeons.
|
GAMEPLAY:
* New: A Block mechanic for shields and some other items. Shields have now a chance to block a physical attack (melee, shot or physical spell) at all times, and a “Block Efficiency” parameter that represent the Damage reduction from the Blocked attack (80 Block Efficiency = you take only 20% of the Blocked Damage). Channeling with the Shield will result in a 100% Block Chance on frontal attacks. Those new values will be affected by Passive Skills and Magic Effects in the future.

* Fixed: Shooting with Ammo Skills toggled on will now grant XP to the Skills.
* Fixed: Some skills were sometime spending several times the resource amount while being cast only once.
* Fixed: Some skills could be casted at the same time.
* Fixed: Two Handed Hammer charged attack was putting enemies on the ground for too long.
* Fixed: Many items could not roll with magical properties.
* Fixed: Some Magic effects in Passive Skills and Loot were stacking way more than they should in the first place.
* Fixed: Some parts of the Loot Generator were broken, resulting in high Legendaries drops and affixes spawning at the wrong level.
