Dungeons of Dredmor Patch 1.1.2

EDIT: Steam is the first out the door with the patch, in the middle of the night no less. Huzzah! — Nicholas

Coming at you from all available angles: It’s a patch! 

Patch Notes

This should be up tomorrow morning on Steam, and trickling out across various other distributors as they get to it. (For some people it might be as late as Monday due to time zone changes, people taking the day off, the Pterodactyl Gods Festival, etc.) A collection of changes is below the cut.

A quick note regarding Desura: while Desura got correctly updated builds from 1.0.11 to 1.1.1 if you use the Desura client, the standalone builds didn’t get updated. This is due to a miscommunication between us and Desura about who puts them up; we’ll be putting up full builds on schedule for you from now on at the same time as we do the in-client uploads. Sorry for the incovenience. Many thanks to Andrew Ferguson for setting up our build machine so we can do this.

And now the changelog:

    Sweet. Do you know if this will this ruin savegames made using the most recent hotfix?

  3. Palpz says:

    Well, the lucky pick change was very poorly thought out. It automatically opens locked doors without a lock-pick. But they forgot to extend it to locked chests.

    • Kaidelong says:

      Actually, this is a welcome nerf to burgulary that was long overdue. Not spending lockpicks on locked doors is very handy, still.

    Well i went to my first post update wizardlands. i sawe changes right away although i didnt have long to enjoy them because of the floor 4 monsters that inhabited the lands while i was like level 3 so luckily i had steam rocket bolts and i could kill at least 2 mobs but it didn’t have a lively ending. So great job guys (deadly though) one question was this just unlucky and are there still easy ones or should i wait with the next wizardlands

  7. Evilmanmark says:

    Well i tried out more wizardlands didn’t run into high level monsters (luckily) i love the new rooms but it all ended when i stepped on a trap that lead to an anvil of krong (daring adventurer that i am) the trap warned me but would i listen of course not
    so good work guys

    No Lucky Pick spamming? What am I going to skol! in mass quantities now? ;) (Not like I got a whole lot of good stuff from the Lutefisk god abuse in a while.)

    Anyway, glad to hear the update’s out. I know what I’ll be doing this weekend.

    crappy stone axes and useless bolts that aren’t ingeniously scythed anything [/ yao ming face]

  10. Kicksumbutt says:

    Good gravy. What will I turn into lutefisk now? I don’t like this patch. I want my lucky pick to make picks like it used to. Revert this please!

    { reply }
  11. Renfar says:

    I don’t like the lucky pick change!
    I can’t open locked chests anymore, and I used to sell lockpicks when I needed to. I also changed lockpicks into lutefisk…

    Please change it back! The ability spamming didn’t bother me too much.

  12. Adam Atkinson says:

    It’s just appeared on desura for me. Thank you very much.

  13. Era Scarecrow says:

    Agreed. Although removing spamming of the lockpicks can be rather nice, not having lockpicks when you need them for chests can get annoying fast. If you’re always got a set, why can’t I open a chest without lockpicks?

    Maybe the lockpick one should automatically give you more lockpics every 30 turns or so, until it maxes at say 100? I was working towards having 1000 lockpicks to store away but now that’s not an option unless i remove the patch (which was forced on me from Steam)

    • Troacctid says:

      I’m playing a run with the new Burglary right now and trust me, when you can pick-lock doors for free, regular lockpick spawns are more than enough to open all the chests.

      { reply }
  14. Nick says:

    Think of it this way: if all the doors in the Dungeon are really easy to pick open then the “Lucky Pick” might really just be a thin coat hanger; and the chests have a complex locking mechanism that requires a real thieves kit to unlock!

  15. Name says:

    Ravens played new sounds at the start of my latest playthrough, but now a few floors down they’re using the old sounds

    { reply }
  16. Arron Syaoran says:

    As long as my lockpicks don’t get consumed when I lucky pick the doors with lockpicks in my inventory, I’m fine. Otherwise, I’d still have to drop my lockpicks to open doors, which is more annoying than lockpick spawn spam.

  17. Nikki says:

    Please could you update the Humble version?
