Unknown deed - Wiczan
Another busy week with the dev team, with the new bridges out of the way, what might be next? You'll have to read and find out
With the release of the new textures and fences, many were asking about other possibilities, such as parapets, tall walls and other things.
As we stated then, this work requires several major changes to expand possible fence types, and would be a little more intensive than simply adding the textures.
I'm pleased to announce that this is a project currently underway, with the tall stone wall, portcullis, high iron fence/gate, stone parapet fences receiving the textures of slate, rounded stone, pottery brick, sandstone, rendered, and marble!
This probably begins some players third or fourth deed remodels, but with more options available, who's complaining?
This week saw the changes of champions and how they work, going from a cap of 3 per god and 3 per kingdom to 1 per god per kingdom and 3 per kingdom. This means all kingdoms have equal opportunity of choosing their champions, so choose well! With this addition, Mol-Rehan kingdoms can now choose Fo and Vynora champions as well, with Jenn-Kellon kingdoms able to choose Magranon as a champion. Of course Libila remains HotS only.
Midsummers on Xanadu
Tomorrow is the launch of our Midsummer event on Xanadu, with a special unique prize for those who complete it.
We have a sneak peek of the prize to tease you all with today!
This unique Midsummers themed mask will only be available through this event, which will be open until the end of July, so make sure you get in and solve the mystery!
Over the coming weeks we'll be adding extra performance monitoring on servers, starting with a smaller undisclosed server. With this system we'll be able to track performance better and identify any areas of concern, which hopefully leads to tweaks and modifications to address the issues.
This won't be run on the same server as the creature changes, but we'll of course continue to update you all as the weeks go on, showcasing the results and our goals for the future.
This is slightly older, but forum user Iberis (Hexd) has been all over Exodus and is showing off her travels!
Check out the sights and wonders of Exodus, I cannot wait to see where she goes next!
That's it from us this week, I hope to see you all this weekend! Until then though, keep on Wurming!
