  1. Hi Everyone, The skill transfer from Jackal to Freedom is now live. By now you may have seen a small tick in skills that transferred over. We have increased the amount that transfers as well as allowed for fight skill to transfer too. If you encounter any bugs please post them on the forums as usual! Keep in mind Fighting skill will not show the increase in the skill tab and instead updates the value directly in the Skills menu. Happy Hunting!
  2. Change: Renamed “Tie off” to “Hitch” on hitching posts New: Added title for 100 repairing. Bugfix: Fixed being able to rename not owned items Bugfix: Hitching posts will now use permissions for the Open option Bugfix: Fixed excessive rarity shine on armor Bugfix: Fixed dyed armor looking incorrect Bugfix: Fixed incorrect hair color Bugfix: Face skin tone should no longer differ from the body
  3. New: Emails will be sent to deed mayors when upkeep falls below 30 days and again when it falls below 7 days. Change: Decorative items in containers and placed on other items should no longer decay. Due to the situation with Xanadu not receiving the 5 hours sleep bonus after the rollback, we will be providing all servers with 10 hours sleep bonus during the regular restart on the 14th of November. Bugfix: Fixed a bug where some items made before the signature update didn’t actually show the signatures when over 20 quality. Bugfix: The volume of measuring jugs can be adjusted while the jug is in inventory or in an inventory subgroup. It cannot be adjusted if the jug is inside a container. Bugfix: Hitching posts can now be placed and turned when not planted. Bugfix: Fixed an issue where relatively new traders failed to have merchant and trader contracts in their inventory for sale. Bugfix: Fixed the issue with some decorations and light sources not getting heating to glowing in a fire source. Bugfix: Change stone shards’ description to match the name. Bugfix: Fixed blue terrain on certain settings Bugfix: Fixed some of the excessive shininess
  4. We’ve had to roll back the database to before the update earlier this morning. We’ve awarded 5 hours of sleep bonus as compensation. Additionally we’ve disabled Jackal skill transfers for the time being. We’ve fixed the exploit that caused the need for a rollback, however we are investigating the severe lag caused by transferring.
  5. Jackal change: Jackal skill transfer has been tweaked and re-enabled Jackal change: Premium time and login: Jackal requires premium time in order to transfer to the server. If you lose premium time while on Jackal, you can pay for more time in the shop and then log in again. Plan ahead to be sure you have enough premium time if you wish to continue playing on Jackal and wish to pay with in game silver. If your premium happens to run out unexpectedly and you wish you pay with silver, you now will be able to log into Jackal and will have 2 minutes to pay for premium in game. If premium is not paid for within that time, you will automatically be transferred back to the server you were on prior to going to Jackal. Change: Signature added to additional items upon creation: Archaeology journal Armour stand Banner Beautiful meditation rug Bow rack Copper needle Dioptra Explorer tent Exquisite meditation rug Fine meditation rug Flag Iron needle Kingdom banner Kingdom flag Kingdom tabard Large saddle Meditation rug Military tent Pavilion Polearms rack Range pole Saddle Tall kingdom banner Wardrobe Weapons rack Quality of life changes and fixes: Enchanted Grass can now be cultivated.

Hitching posts have now been added: Any creature that can be hitched to a large cart can be hitched to a hitching post. Hell Horses can be “Tied Off” to a hitching post at any age that is not a foal. A hitching post can hold 3 creatures. Creatures can eat from the trough of a hitching post, as long as there is food in it, that they are normally able to eat. Untamed Hell Horses hitched to a hitching post are docile and will not attack anything as long as they have food in there trough. A creature will eat from a trough at the same rate as they would normally graze / eat from pile. A hitching post cannot be picked up it can only be transported. Hitching posts are lockable and spawn with a 1ql lock on creation. You cannot load or move a hitching post with creatures hitched to it. Hitching posts have 2 main permissions, Manage and Use. A person with use perms can unhitch any horse by either right clicking the horse and clicking unhitch (singular), or right clicking the hitching post and clicking Animals > Unhitch (All of em). Only creature edible items can be placed into a trough (seed, meat, veg, fish and so on).
