Minor Updates and Bugfixes

?7650 (5th September 2023)

UI Adjustments
  • Woodcutting will now display all locked trees instead of only the next tree.
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed a bug where repair costs for Township buildings were factoring the total building count across all Biomes instead of only the Biome it resided in. This unintentionally increased repair costs by 2-3x.
  • Fixed an issue where starting a Golbin Raid would crash the game.
  • Disabled the CPU/GPU performance setting for steam temporarily until it is stable enough to re-release.
  • Fixed an issue where the Game Guide and Statistics for expansion skills would display in the base game.
  • Updated some translations.
  • Fixed issue where the Clown Hat was missing from the Shop.
  • Fixed some black progress bar issues in Super Dark mode.

?7668 (6th September 2023)

We want to preface this by saying we are always listening to the community. We have for the last 4 years, and that itself won't change.

We've been reading all the feedback on various platforms since the release of v1.2 and have re-evaluated some of the changes we made to the Township Trader boxes.

This update aims to add more Tasks to the base game, bring back Herbs to Herb Boxes, and slightly reduce the amount of Tasks required to obtain T2/3 Boxes (allowing you to skip many more tasks you don't enjoy).

The Task requirements themselves will remain, as it is an important requirement to balance the power of the boxes.

We appreciate the feedback we have received on this matter, and will continue to monitor it over the coming days/weeks.

New Tasks
  • Added 10 new Tasks to the base game, 2 per difficulty up to Elite, increasing the total amount of Tasks available in the base game to 110.
Township Trader Boxes
  • Reminder that there is now a total of 110 tasks in the Base game, up from 100.
  • Tier 2 Boxes now require 85 Task completions out of 110 total Tasks available to you in the Base Game, down from 95 out of 100 available Tasks.
  • Tier 3 Boxes now require 110 Task completions out of 130 total Tasks available to you with Throne of the Herald, down from 115 out of 120 available Tasks.
Herb (Seed) Box

We've heard your feedback regarding Herb boxes and how the new requirements were too harsh for a box of seeds. We're changing this box back to Herbs now that it has the task completion requirements.

  • Herb Boxes now provide Herbs again instead of Seeds, up to 75 per box.
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an issue where the building repair cost modifiers were not applying correctly during certain seasons, causing 100% reduced repair cost.

?7785 (12th September 2023)

Atlas of Discovery
New UI
  • Added an explanation of the Hex Mastery system to the View Hex Mastery popup.
  • The View Hex Mastery popup will now display how many hexes you have mastered.
  • The Hex Mastery popup will now explain what Hex Mastery is, and how it works.
  • The Hex Mastery popup will also display how many Hexes you have mastered.
  • Compacted some Mobile UI elements for Cartography.
  • Added Max Hex Level indicator to the Hex progress UI.
  • Hovering over the Barrier Bar or Icon within Combat will now display the Barrier information just like it does for the Combat Areas themselves.
New Settings
  • Added a setting to throttle Cartography Map frame rate cap while inactive. This caps the frame rate to 10 FPS after 5 minutes of inactivity.
  • Added a setting to set Cartography Frame Rate Cap while active.
  • Added a setting to toggle the cat image for undiscovered dig sites in Cartography. This is disabled by default.
  • Fixed issue where the Cartography Map Quality setting had no effect on iOS
  • Fixed hidden POI markers not displaying automatically when locating a required item.
  • Fixed issue with how Max Skillcape handled its requirements.
Base Game
  • Added a failsafe to the game which will prevent it from loading if there is a file version mismatch. This kind of thing can only occur during the 1-5 second process of a game update.
  • Ash no longer drops from Firemaking in the Tutorial. Should help prevent issues where players are getting stuck on Tutorial Island.
  • Tutorial Island will now allow you to purchase Feathers and Bowstrings after steps have been completed to unlock them. This should also fix issues where players get stuck on Tutorial Island.

A Steam Client update is on the way for Windows to fix some reported issues we have received.

?7809 (14th September 2023)

  • Removed hard coded properties that handle Skill level cap increases and Skill selections, moving moved them to the namespaced gamemode object. This change allows Mod creators to determine how their custom Skills are handled in Ancient Relics mode with ease, and increases compatibility of this adjustment when multiple custom Skills are installed.

?7841 (18th September 2023)

  • Heavily increased the sale price of all Barrier Gems. This in turn makes the Tortoise familiar in Summoning require less quantity of gems per craft.
