The 1.0.7 beta should be going out to you Steam users with beta access in the next day or two [edit- or Monday for sure; whenever it gets pushed to Steam], provided little else explodes. We’ll keep you posted.
There are some other things going on too:
- For the purposes of the 107 beta, we’ve removed “bad weapon penalty” so weapon skills will be entirely about giving bonuses. Please tell us if this is a good idea or not. Dual wield restrictions still apply as usual.
- Some crazy mod support is going in; the way skill definitions work in XML is changed so it’s a lot more open to modification. You can, for instance, change the starting items given by a skill.
- I forget what else. Something is probably broken. Whoever finds it gets a prize?
Of Cosplay and Dignity
In other news, speaking of prizes, anyone remember that costume contest? No one has actually entered (which probably speaks to the wisdom of our players), so this may end up as one of those contests you win for entering anything at all.
Or we may just have to sweeten the deal a bit. If in-game rewards won’t do it, do you want a t-shirt or something? Hmm; well, we’ll think of something to convince one of you to sacrifice pride on the altar of fandom.
