This update is lighter on content but still contains some cool new changes and a lot of fixes.

This month the team focused on 2 major things. The first is transitioning into a game engine update without anything breaking for the players. This turned out to cost more time than anticipated but the first part of this upgrade will be in this update. The second is preparing for a showcase at INDIGOx in the Netherlands. If you'd like to come meet us over there, you can find all the details on the Indigo website: https://www.dutchgamegarden.nl/indigo/

Fortunately, there was some time to make the game better. The most notable change is the reworked trader mechanics and the introduction of the resupply mechanic. Traders now appear more often and carry a limited supply. Item delivery also has a limit based on your shop progression. The item delivery limit is reset daily. Alternatively, it is possible instantly reset the item delivery limit by using the resupply option but this comes at a cost.

While the primary reason was to make the buying of items more exciting and surprising it also addressed the exploitation of bulk buying crafting resources and converting them in high margin items.

Balance

  • Crafting - Crafting times for all items have been updated. (tailoring lowered, cooking and smithing increased.)
  • Events - Tweaked the effects of the ‘Tournament’ event to be less intensive.
  • Items - Rebalanced crafting level requirements for cooking.
  • Objectives - Objective requirements for cooking have been updated so they line up with item leveling.

  • Community Request: Restock UI - Moving the character will now close the Restock UI.
  • Restock UI - The Restock UI should now dim the quality outline if the slot is empty.

Changes
