Patch 2.2.5 Tulip Mania!

Postby JohnCarver » Mon Feb 12, 2018 4:09 am

Greetings Salemites,
Horses are still on schedule for February but with Valentines day around the corner it was time to put a little love in the air!

MAJOR WARNINGS
-----------------------------------------------------
A new Major Warning: Herbpots may not persist plants for long periods of time in the future. As we begin evaluating and addressing mechanics that encourage both hoarding and 'tedium' we will start by eliminating some abilities to 'bank' large amounts of resources outside of normal storage metrics. This means that Crops and pots may wilt if not harvested in a reasonable manner etc. etc. The herbpots will most likely be the first to go this route. IF you have massive herbpot farms you find yourself never harvesting for large periods of time consider this your warning to harvest them.

Mason Lodge Level 5
The Mason Lodge level 5 will be live. I will share that on this level there is the ability to sell Tulips for absolutely absurd prices. Rumors are that Tulips and the speculative nature of their value can only go up and never crash. As such, a rush of demand to what is clearly a stable investment is anticipated. Plan accordingly.

Fruit Tree Rewrite
Fruit trees will now bloom in an extremely generous nature. This means those of you with massive fruit tree orchards will have silly amounts of Fruit. As a possible alternative to this I may implement a diseased tree mechanic, or perhaps I should just nerf the fruit per tree? Open debate plz.. Just know I am not happy with how much fruit you are going to have now but the unreliability of Fruit Tree harvesting needed to be adjusted.

Further Animation Work
We have been working further on animations. Wander has been changed to the current Run. Run has been changed to a 'jogging' of sorts, and there is a new Sprint, which is faster than all previous run modes but will only be viable for those with tip top phlegm.

Valentines Day Events
I may send y'all something on Valentines day. But leading up to it a strange new NPC has appeared in town selling Periodicals. He will trade them to you for turkey hearts.

Superball Event
*Refereeman should be in town to deliver rewards to all those who bet on the Pelters in the Superball Event.

New Content
*New Skill: Tulip Mania
*New Skill: Catapults
*New Skill: Catapult Construction
*New Craftable Flag has been added.
*New Clothing item: Floral Shirt
*New Clothing Item: Floral Pants
*New Clothing item: Posey Shirt
*New Clothing item: Posey Pants.
*New Inspirational: Broken Masonic Necklace.


PVP Changes: Catapults!
*New Structures: Catapults: They can be used both offensively and defensively. They can fire over walls and their effectiveness will be dependent on the boulders thrown. On Expeditions they damage walls.

*P-Claims and Town Bells for Providence are now raidable without crimes if they are out of silver.
*P-Claims on Providence now hold 6 months of silver. Expeditions are still 2.



Minor Balance Changes
*Seaweed can now be thrown on haystacks.
*Brick Town Houses now require mortar.
*Pinescales now have their own unique ground drop graphic.
*Using the Bellows on a Finery Forge now makes a sound.
*Crafting Items now plays a sound effect
*Crafting Rags and Clothing now players a Unique Sound effect.
*Hitbox for Iron Ore Boulder has been reduced.
*Flaming Pinecone has been nerfed.
*Mason Lodge Level 4 should have better diagnosing abilities now.
*Dross Speed as a fertilizer has been adjusted down.
*Cementation Furnaces now require Coal to burn.
*Silver Buckle Trade Order now gives 8 Points up from 5.
*Scalping a player now leaves a theft scent similar to desecrating a skeleton.
*Bugfix: Scuttling Crab Legs now count as Shellfish Food.
*Bugfix: Buff display for Mighty Muscles now correctly displays the time left.
*Bugfix: Red Grapes now apply the same food debuff as white grapes.

Pactch 2.2.5.1

Valentines Day & Support the Patch
We will have a new Support the Patch item of a Valentines Day shirt as well as Valetines candy delivered shortly after the patch drops.

Concord is Under Attack!
*Concord is now officially under attack by Brambles. Shame on whoever did that, but as a result:
--Brambles will not encroach the primary town claim as teh light radiating from it is too much.
-- Catapults now destroy brambles.

Pavement Orders
*Pavement Tiles now remember their priority against each other so that they should no longer swap the order in which they draw against each other.

Herbpot Rewrite
*Bugfix: Herbpots have been rewritten to properly accept the concept of something dying inside them. This is likely to cause crashes and unintended side effects so please post if you see your pots doing anything funny like persisting humus inside them when you know its not there etc. etc.

Small Stuff
*BUGFIX: Witch Flag should no longer crash clients.
*BUGFIX: Posey Clothes and Floral Clothes should be working as intended now.
*BUGFIX: Tobacco Trade Order should be fixed now.
*BUGFIX: Shattered mason necklaces should appear on every break now.


Pactch 2.2.5.2

Concord: Stocks are now 6 hours up from 1.
Concord: Stocks now reward 250 Justice Points for stocking a player.
*Bugfix: Wilted Tulips shoudl display correctly.
*Bugfix: Makeshift Pickaxe has been nerfed.
*Bugfix: Plotpoles should indeed last 6 months on Providence, although grandfathered ones may need to be pushed a single tile to be eligible for this.



Pactch 2.2.5.3
--------------------------------------------------------

Stockades Changes
------------------
*His Majesty has become enthralled with the stock system and as such will now sell his Displeasure and His Pardon to those who are willing to trade him IOU's for Justice.

can we have catapults destroy townbells so people should hide them outside the range of players? ¦]

*P-Claims and Town Bells for Providence are now raidable without crimes if they are out of silver.

what does that mean? you can bash walls of towns out of silver without crime or TbF?

Awesome! Thanks!
I think I might be fine with fruit trees catching disease, if I'm actually able to harvest any at all prior to them getting sick. My fruit farm is considerably small (no more than 10 trees) and since I planted them a couple months back, one apple tree blossomed once.
Jesus died for our sins. You should do the same.
