Announcements of major changes to Salem.

Patch 2.2.0 Saleming Along

Postby JohnCarver » Mon Jan 08, 2018 1:15 am

Greetings Salemites,
New Patch for you. We were able to keep a brisk pace of development which is hopefully realized in the content afforded here. However, I anticipate a lull in pace causing us to miss next Sundays patch so fair warning. The goal would be small things for you at the end of the month and 2.3 Sometime in February. Without further ado here is what we were working on though!

Image


New Sea Vessel
-----------------------------------------------------
*Rafts. Sail with more friends and bring more stuff than ever before!


New Mason Lodge Floor
---------------------------------------------------------
The 3rd floor of the masonlodge has been added in all its glory! Go check it out! Feel free to PM me when you are there and if you have a 4th floor necklace and I will discuss with marp dropping the next floor.
New Music Track: Mason lodge now has its own music track.
*Mason Lodge Guards now appropriately March in place.


Concord Non-Witch Event
------------------------------------------------------------
Merchants will not arrive until the first season after this post, namely the next everbloom/bloodmoon as of this post.

This Patch comes with the Pilgrim event to Concord! On the eastern beaches of Concord a handful of reasonable individuals who claim to be from from a non-profit organization have landed on the beaches. They go by the Pilgrims International Eating Rights or PIE-RIGHTS for short. Their foul mouths and pegged legs make you feel skeptical but why would they lie? Anyways, they claim that Grapejuice can be used to make a wonderful wine that will cure the sick in far away lands and wish you to bring them litres of it to help the cause. In exchange for doing so they will share with you a recipe for a Wine. Each season change the recipe they will share with you changes and they will be willing to accept another 10 liters of grapejuice! IN addition to this His Majesty has gotten involved with their operation and each time you satisfy their needs you will be awarded with 15 BONUS IOU's (these will not count towards the leaderboard but can be used to upgrade your Mason Necklaces).

Please note that Grapes are very tempermental on the soil they are planted in and they will not fruit if planted too far east. In addition to this His Majesty has declared that only him and hiw newfound friends may transport the liquid. As such, all Wine must now be traded in person and transported by foot. Any fast-traveling with Wine has been strictly outlawed.

Lastly, they heard that the settlers of Concord may have an interest in shipping some grapes back to providence. Each shipment turned in will reward them with Pieces of Eight. Turn in 50 of these bottles to a merchant who showed up in town and he promises to take grapes back to Providence!

Variant Creature System
------------------------
In an effort to make the world feel a bit more alive I have tampered with a variant animal system. These are not NEW creatures. But they are new textures for various existing creatures with slightly adjusted stats and combat. The first phase of this is rolling out to our dear friend the bunny rabbit.

*New Variant Kritter: Appalachian Cottontail. The larger of his Cousins, this bunny has higher hit points and exhibits a red-hue to his coat. He moves a bit slower as well.
*New Variant Kritter: Eastern Cottontail. These exhibit a greyish color and are much quicker than his cousins.
*New Variant Kritter: Mountain CottonTail. These exhibit a brownish coat and are positioned right between the other two stat-wise.


Transient World Objects
--------------------------------------------------------------
I've implemented a transient world object system. Things that exist but only for short periods of time. I'm open to suggestions on where you guys think we could go with this and what would be interesting but I like the idea that players can make an impact on the world around them and 'feel' the other players maybe even if you have that missed encounter. These of course have major implications in the PVP side of things as well so here ya go.

*Players now leave footsteps when they walk through the lands. These footsteps can be seen when tracking is enabled. This will both allow players to see if others have been snooping around their base recently, as well as leave little trails back to your base when you go out foraging. Seeing these footsteps requires that the character has indian tracking. Black footprints are innocent pilgrims and red footsteps are left by criminals with a crime buff.

*Players now leave small pools of blood each time they bleed from a bleeding effect.

*Players now leave small pools of blood each time they finish butchering an animal.


Nightcaps
--------------------------------------------------------------
Pajamas are not complete without Nightcaps. I shame y'all for not bringing this to my attention sooner.
*New Nightcap: Plaid Slumbercap
*New Nightcap: Twinkle Topper
*Jute Caps are now Jute Nightcaps and have an appropriate sleep bonus.


New Content
--------------------------------------------------------
*It now only takes 4 witches to complete Seance of the damned.
*Reagents for gravecrave reduced. Gravecrave now increases the difficulty of a players next craving by 'double' their humors.
*New Flag: Reedflag
*NEW ITEM: Players may now craft Bark Boots
*New Item: Rainbow Fishscale Cape.
*New Building: Webchest. A new Booby Trap fashioned with Spider Silks
*There is now a unique sound effect in Turkey coops that have Fertile Hens
*There is now a unique sound effect in Turkey coops that have a Golden Goose.
*Players should be sure to keep their coops far from their outer wall sso would-be raiders cannot hear your treasures and further entice them!
*Players may no longer enter houses when they are in combat.
*Players now make a yawn sound effect when waking up out of a bed. The session may not connect by the time this plays so only those 'around' the bed of a waking player may hear the yawn.

The patch looks very interesting, i'll make an effort to break as many of the fun mechanics as possible so we get them polished asap xD Footsteps and cannon sounds are best, been hoping for such stuff for a long while.
Exactly 6.022 x 10^23 worth of Lach molecules.
