Greetings fellow Mages🧙🏼♀️🧙🧙🏿♀️🧝!
Most of you enjoy the relaxed pace at which life takes place on the planet Driftland, often taking advantage of a moment of reflection and planning during an active pause. On the other hand, the time in our game can be accelerated to shorten the wait for the effect of your decisions.
We got a lot of feedback that the middle rate of time acceleration changes too little, and the maximum acceleration is not enough so the game is still too slow for some players.
Improving a time acceleration mechanics turned out to be quite a challenge. First of all, we could not spoil the game to people who like to play in a relaxed way, and secondly, excessive acceleration of time negatively affected the performance of AI and game optimization. This would be unacceptable and put into question the possibility of implementing these changes...
⏩ 50% Faster Game
We did it! With version 1.2.8 in Driftland you can play 50% faster at a full speed, the middle time acceleration has been increased by 33% while maintaining full AI and game performance.
🎮 Beta Support for Game Pads
An alternative game control model supporting gamepads has been added. This is a beta version that we will develop but you can now try how it works. The control mode is changed automatically - moving any gamepad knob activates the alternative control mode. To return to the standard mode, just move the mouse.
