This is the necessary and important one...  will be interesting to see where it lands.

The rest of the breeding changes have me worried about just how rigid the system will be from now on. Too much rigidity and too little randomness means new players will never be able to make fancy horses.

I think maybe by "generic" they mean "unisex". I have noticed some female horses samed Simeon, so maybe that's why.

what is a stealthed player anyway?

A player who has used the stealth option in the same place you would find your climb option.

There is an ability called Stealth that makes your character invisible and also not show up in local.

AH changes was mostly about the mechanics of breeding, i guess. With two traits being fixed to work properly.

 

I assume changes such as making the gear draft trait not be completely useless is quite a bit down the prio list. Oh well.

Yup that's what I said too. Literally a core trait in one of the two main classes.

Best thing to keep in mind, While they do post a good list of things that have been changed or fixed, there are likely things that were fixed but didn't make the list, for a variety of reasons. So just because it wasn't explicitly listed as changed, doesn't mean that it wasn't changed. No one wants to read a page of bugfixes. :)

I suppose there's a story behind this line of patch notes, even if i don't know what the story is, and i'm not completely sure how stealth even works but...

I never saw drakes or scales mentioned anywhere in the patch notes for a very long time. All suggestions or complaints threads made by anyone about the topic seemed to have been pretty much always ignored and i tought the topic was completely taboo or invisibile to developers at this point.

...But i assume it's not?

So... i guess that, besides this thing that has been changed, your stand is that everything is fine the way it is?


------------------
I never had a chance to try out the new AH yet, but heard many complaints about it, i'm glad to see what seems to be a lot of time and effort spent fixing bugs and polisithing it, i hope that makes it better : )

I do for sure. If you gave me a 10 pages long page of bug fixes for the game I'd jump for joy and read it all.

Generally speaking (not about AH), i agree with this.

Considering it's been less than 24 hours since Keenan addressed the much complained about poor/nonexistent communication, I certainly hope there are no uncommunicated changes. It would definitely make the "and we will await more feedback from you before we decide on future tweaks to this system."  part somewhat difficult.

 

p.s. I would love to read not one, but multiple pages of patchnotes

This is nothing new for us, or special for Wurm in the video game industry. There are ALWAYS changes that don't make it in the patch notes. 

 

It's also worth noting that in development, of anything, one small change to something could have unintended side effects. Hence bugs. :)

As far as im concerned, absolutely, patch notes are fun!
Especially for a game that tends to love and attract min/maxing in every aspect of its being, long patch notes and detailed changes are always appreciated i am sure!

---

not sure the negative needed touched they do need to show up occasionally.

 

seriously deeply sincerely thank you for the manage window change.

Also ty for

 

  • Speed/Draft/Output traits will now have a large chance to be ignored during selection if the creature has no use for those traits. ( please work right, also this has a chance to be a right mess on bison xD output/draft)
  • Improved chance to pass on dominant traits.
  • Existing traits passed on from 1 or more parents are more likely to pass than newly generated traits. ( tyty)
  • Sick trait is now much less likely to kill something.
  • Increased the chance a bit to pass on the color of the parents.
  • Bugfix: Beverage recipes will now add to the cookbook when the player is offline. ( woot! this effects one of our cooks)
  • Bugfix: Fixed problems with creatures packing grass and lawn. ( please work. please!)
  • Bugfix: Fixed situations where animals were not eating correctly when in mines.
  • Bugfix: Increased the chance of animals getting fat when they eat hay.
  • Bugfix: Pet Bowls will no longer drop through fences.
  • Bugfix: Pick Stuff Up trait and the Stationary trait should now work correctly. ( I want to know if this doesnt work on enchanted grass I got two with this trait so hoping to find out)
  • Bugfix: Animals can now breed when slightly hungry.
  • Change: The manage animal menu will no longer close when selecting options like un-tame or un-brand and will instead reopen the animal manage window after. ( ty omg)

 

--------

Congrats!!

  • New: Added the new title for 100 Large Metal Shield. Congratulations Neowyn!

-------

  • Negative traits no longer get a bonus to pass down to offspring. ( not sure how about this one. it does explain why they kept passing on more then the actual dominate trait on the test pair tho.)

 

started another spreadsheet round two here we go! I have a lot less animals then the previous spreed sheet. The ones listed here are the only decent ones I kept from the results bred from previous patch. Which is kinda sad considering just how many pairs I bred and the given the results I got.

 

please work as intended patch

 

Spoiler

the not fat sheep was on packed enchanted grass and I spaced that fact when breeding her so heres hoping she survives it xD.

All sheep listed are not inbred. are black, are hilariously useless traits :D. they are in the list because I want to see what happens with the draft/speed traits. basically I want to know if they roll off with the new change and what happens if they dont. Also not a bad way to test color inheritance since black sheep are kinda notorious for being hard to pass on. but I saw a noticeable improvement from the last color chance tweek. went from like 1/6 to 1/4. guess we will see if that changes.

I no longer have bison aside from one lone 3 draft male and my classics are dead. I plan on getting some donkeys to see how going from scratch will look. we got a person focusing deer and another cows/bulls. the results are going to be interesting.

 

also side note on packed grass I noticed it mostly showed up right after an animal aged up from baby to adult. so that is also going to be interesting to see if that got touched.

 

edit woops missed the date time on the last pair. but its close enough to the others I dont care enough to reupload.
