1.3.1 Holiday Cheer

Announcements of major changes to Salem.

1.3.1 Holiday Cheer

Postby JohnCarver » Sat Dec 17, 2016 9:52 am

Greetings Salemites,
The primary focus is still the new systems and Expedition 2 Content. However, even the pressing matters of the new Craving & Trade Order system must be put aside for a bit for the spirit of the holidays. Just a few nice things here and there along the code changes for this years holiday events.

Image

New Things
*Players may now craft Fur Pants.
*Players may now craft a reindeer mask
*Players may now craft Wreaths.
*New Fancy Chair added to Mystery Furniture Pack.

Hypothermia Changes
*When the season changes to an everbloom a loaded ice block player is thawed out of his ice and his Hypothermia buff is removed.
*New Help window will pop up explaining the effects of hypothermia and how to counter them the first time a character encounters the hypothermia debuff. This will then also be available in the character help screen in Paginae windows.

Bug & Quality of Life Fixes
*When a house with Scents is destroyed the scents should be displayed in the ouside world.
*Fields now round (up) on their upkeep percentages to be more accurate if they are going to require more than the minimum amount of humus or seeds.
*Typo fixed in the Plague Handling skill.
*Evil Snowmen can now be destroyed.
*Equipping fishing bait and removing fishing bait now makes the slotting sound.
*Blindfold now takes red dye instead of cranberries.
*Windchimes moved from the "Collections" Paginae Menu to the "Decoratives" Paginae Menu item.


Santa Marp
*Used Christmas Magic to put snow in Town that doesn't carry the same freezing effects of snow on high mountains.
*New Decorations added at the request of Santa Marp.
*New Toys and Gifts added at the request of Santa Marp.
*Implemented Artist Competition Reward that was long over-due for Marp's Art Contest.

*UDPATE*
As I was installing the changes it just appeared to me that my entire rework of the food c0dez were sucked up into this commit. As such, I just changed my mind about restarting the server without a hard back-up in the last week. ETA 30 minutes of downtime while I hard-backup just to be safe.

I'm really happy we won't be seeing any more noobsicles decorating Town Square. Some fixes to ease the learning curve for new players are well overdue and will make getting a hang of the game a lot less daunting!
