What style of dev frames would you prefer?

Serious - Strict progress reports without silly comments or emoticons
Casual - Similar to what we have now with occasional funny photoshopped pictures, etc.

Quote from: kinngrimm on Sep 13, 2016, 02:27 pmWhen epic would be life, would the current villages/castles/towns build by players being put into the map rotation?
I don't think there are any currently - they are only icons on the map.
what i ment, at a time the game has its castle building options included and people would be able to produce customized content themselves, if those then would also be included into the conquest rotation. That currently there are just placeholders in epic for later on customized content, i thought would be self-explanatory.

Development

Internal testing of the new Conquest map was a great success today! Few noncritical flaws has been noticed and will be fixed tomorrow. Muting feature has also been tested and no issues whatsoever have been found ;)

Here's a tiny overview of what some of the masterminds behind the game have been doing today:

  • Krom - working on Castle map improvements; made a beautiful new sky that adds distance feeling. Check out sneak peeks to see it!
  • Tolonar - adjusting square and round mail coif to wear with helmets, balancing weights of scale armour.
  • Logen - polishing combat animations. He says it's not that easy :D
  • serr - working on Skirmish game mode, which is more or less ready for open testing. Squads system is also mostly done, though requires more tests before releasing.
  • Igor - collecting players statistics - damage done, kill/death ratio, etc. All that will help coders and balancers to polish current combat system.

Man, finally! Nasal helmet without mail coif looks weird.

    New patch is up! Skirmish game mode, community polls, balancing and much more! Steam failed everyone by having extremely long downtime right after the update, although it's fine already :)
    You can find patch notes here: Link

    Wandering what Thomek is doing? I better not spoil it, just watch the video.

    There is more to come!


    Since it's patch day, coders were mostly polishing new features. But art team didn't waste time!


    • Zimke - working on new hand armor! Mail mittens, gloves, you name it. There is a picture in sneak peeks of his mail mittens with cuff ;)
    • Ozin - continuing his work on mountains. Now with more trees variety!

    Aladin, his friends and their boomsticks riding into the sunset on their flying carpet after spreading their love to a village far far away.

    Now they are on the look out for a new home, where they can bring justice and order for all of us.

    Hope you like new game mode and maps! Whole team has been working on fixing bugs, polishing maps' flaws, and dealing with other things that came up after yesterday's patch. Squads mechanic underwent different tests today and the team is very positive about it. Squad system will allow players to create parties in barracks and invite their Steam friends to join them on server. Overall, everyone is happy with last patch, bugs are being fixed, and new content awaits polishing :)

    Mysterious Balancing Team posted items balance changes today! You might have missed it so here it is: Link



    • Igor - polishing UI and fixing bugs related to polls interface.
    • Logen - still working on combat animations. He wasn't exaggerating, it's not easy ;)
    • Soundwizard - recording subsonic bullets. No, OKAM won't become First Person Shooter. Eventually, those will be used as new "hit" sounds since so many players complained about bad combat response.
    • Fin - building a table for his studio! Can't wait to hear more music written by him. Also, expect a picture of his masterpiece!

    Sneak Peeks

    Enjoyed new maps but want more? New screenshot of Ozin's mountains map!



    Yesterday Zimke showed his "Work In Progress" mittens. He's been working on them since! These are mail mittens with cuff.



    And these are next on progression tree - fine mail mittens with cuff.


    Siegbert

    Nice work as always! Thanks

    Damn, this mountains screenshot... Looks so inviting to take my horsie and stroll around the countryside for a while.

    Gotta love Zimke's attention to detail. Look at the dirt stains on the gambeson!
