LiF:Your Own 4 Year Anniversary! (1.4.4.4) https://life-is-feudal.org/blog/36/lifyour-own-4-year-anniversary-1444/ https://life-is-feudal.org/blog/36/lifyour-own-4-year-anniversary-1444/ Wed, 19 Sep 2018 15:40 CEST
A few words about the patch itself: we have addressed some recent issues that came up with the release of the previous patch, as well as including a working per object access rights setup feature. It is still a little rough around the edges and a bit difficult to use for now, so you can read about how to use it correctly in Your Own here.
Patch Notes (ver. 1.4.4.4):

New Features and Tweaks:
  • Added the ability to setup unmovable object rights
  • You can now reset your keybindings to the default state
  • All newly created worlds are now running ‘Red’ rules by default
  • Players that have entered the Town Claim or Outpost Claim outside of the JH period will be booted out to the border of those claims if they log in during the JH period
  • Default ability preset now depends on the mount state of the player - this means players can have different default abilities while they’re riding the horse, driving the Trader’s Cart or walking
  • Tweaked Flamberge default skin and added some premium skins

Bug Fixes and Optimizations:
  • Shader caching is now working as intended, which should reduce the second (and the following times) of entering the world
  • Fixed shrinking of guild claim on guild monument upgrade
  • Fixed partial invulnerability and inability to act after being knocked down (trampled by enemy, unsaddled while riding the horse etc)
  • Fixed client crash related to the inventory GUI

  • Updated the offset of drop bags so they no longer disappear in heavily terraformed terrain

The long awaited Life is Feudal: Your Own update, and Franchise Sale on Steam! https://life-is-feudal.org/blog/35/the-long-awaited-life-is-feudal-your-own-update-and-franchise-sale-on-steam/ https://life-is-feudal.org/blog/35/the-long-awaited-life-is-feudal-your-own-update-and-franchise-sale-on-steam/ Mon, 03 Sep 2018 19:56 CEST To celebrate the occasion, grab 50% off on all items in our two day full franchise sale on Steam in appreciation of your awesome support of Life is Feudal!

Patch Notes (ver. 1.4.0.1):
Important features and tweaks
  • Player owned horses that are left unattended in the world now take longer to decay (2 hours)
  • Reworked three gathering abilities (Search for something Edible, Search for Materials, Search for Herbs). All of these abilities work the same way as the original gathering of alchemy ingredients worked. ‘Targeting’ the tile triggers the visibility of corresponding plants in the area, which you now manually gather
  • Luck effects from different types of sources (jewelry, blessings and 5 ingredient foods) now have separate effect slots and stack separately
  • Movable objects can now be damaged by projectiles without a siege damage attribute
  • You can now rename unmovable objects
  • You can now give names to movable objects on your claimed lands - making your guild items management easier for everyone
  • Movable objects placed inside unmovable objects (warehouses, houses, keeps etc) can no longer be opened, looted or moved during JH raids. We’ve implemented this feature to prevent different types of exploits, which allowed players to squeeze into the warehouses and loot them while defenders were fighting elsewhere.
  • Incomplete buildings and objects now take significantly longer to decay and disappear. You can use the ‘Inspect’ ability on incomplete buildings to see their durability and how soon they will decay and disappear.
  • Reworked all shield visual geometry
  • Players should slip and fall down when they step on top of other players or horses
  • Minimum criminal status duration is now 10 seconds, giving you some time to hit the offender once or twice - make sure not to overdo it!
  • 5-ingredient food is now boosted. Eating complex foods like this will grant you an ‘Inspired work’ and ‘Luck’ effect and the duration of the effects depends on the quality of the food.
  • Resurrection sickness is now twice as long and healing effect duration is shorter, making it better to heal yourself now rather than dying
  • Warnings while looting graves should now work properly and warn you only if you really will lose the alignment upon looting

    --- Luck mechanics reworked---
  • Max luck on a character is now capped at 100 (originally 12)
  • Luck bonus on jewelry is increased 5x- this will only work on newly crafted jewelry
  • Luck bonus from skills at lvl 100 of training are increased up to 10
  • ‘Bless with a God's Love’ luck buff is increased to 8.5 (up to 10 on 100 lvl of the Piety skill)
  • 5-ingredient foods now provide up to 10 luck
  • The chance to craft an exceptional item has increased from 0.01% to 0.1%

  • Updated mature oak tree collisions so they can no longer form an impassable wall
  • Added FoV and Particle Settings to the Video Options of the game
  • Poisons tweaked so that they last longer (2 to 4 minutes) and the overall damage is also higher
  • Weapon tooltips slightly improved
  • Personal timers on horses are now properly ignored during JH

    --- ‘Battle Survival’ skill tweaks ---
  • Added a 60 second cooldown after ‘Fatal Hp Conversion’ proc
  • Skill raise from the ‘Fatal Hp Conversion’ ability was significantly increased
  • Luck now properly affects the chance of doubling the amount of fatal Hard HP damage that is transformed into Soft HP
  • Added a system message when the ‘Fatal Hp Conversion’ is triggered containing the information how luck affected this proc
  • Shields on the back should now properly lose durability upon being hit

    --- Beta Branch---

  • You can now choose between versions of YO that you want to play. If you want to stick to the latest update version, or choose the older one if you prefer. This can be done by right clicking on ‘Life is Feudal’- Properties - Beta.

Horse-drawn Carts and New Walls - AT LAST! (1.3.4.5) https://life-is-feudal.org/blog/28/horse-drawn-carts-and-new-walls-at-last-1345/ https://life-is-feudal.org/blog/28/horse-drawn-carts-and-new-walls-at-last-1345/ Fri, 29 Sep 2017 20:02 CEST ***(Hotfix) A small patch has been issued that should fix a bug that caused Guild Monuments to disappear after certain actions with a guild and its members.***

FINALLY!

After countless sleepless nights, frustration, desperation and strokes of hysterical laughter, we’ve managed to merge the four separate types of entities into one: a horse, a player, a cart and movable objects. The result of which has been highly anticipated by many players and is called: Horse-drawn carts!
Now you can fetch large amounts of items and certain movable objects around the map in an efficient and immersive way. Who knows, maybe you will not need a home anymore and can play as a nomad with all your stuff fitting into one cart? It is Your Own decision, after all! ;)

Also, we’ve implemented a new large set of castle wall models and new keeps! Recipes for building these are now available to you. These new walls should be more efficient and provide a wider angle of fire for the defenders’ archers. New keeps can now be built on top of your guild monument to provide an additional layer of protection for the “heart” of your guild.

We also would like to remind you that this major feature was one of the most voted features suggested by our players. We encourage you, our players, to visit this page and browse through the existing features, vote for them, discuss with others and even suggest your own ideas here[lifeisfeudal.com]!

Lastly, we’ve transferred all the current changes and features from the beta branch to the main/release branch. This means that you will be able to play with these features without a need to switch to the beta branch. The full list of features that are transferred from the beta branch and added with the current patch:

This mechanism is DISABLED by default. Server admins may to enable this setting by modifying the: $cm_config::Decay::HorsesDecayTimeMinutes preference

  • Properly implemented the swimming skill. It can now be skilled up and allows you to swim longer distances
  • Armor effects now properly scale with the armor quality
  • Archer Stand and Defensive Fence now set up immediately in a complete state

Spring is in the air and some of the animals in the Life is Feudal world seem to have ingested something bright and rather, well, psychedelic since they are laying unusually colorful eggs…

And don’t get us started on the reports from a number of villages that fluffy little bunnies are also producing equally patterned and rainbow-esque Easter eggs! Can we get a collective, ‘aww’?!

Send in your Easter screenshots or tag us using #FeudalEaster

Patch notes (ver. 1.3.0.8):

New features and tweaks:
  • Added Easter eggs and bunnies in game for the Easter weekend and the following week. The bunnies have a unique ability to lay easter eggs in coops!

We hope you all have a great weekend!

We had also SIGNIFICANTLY reworked skill progression formula towards planned concept of fast 30, 60 lvl progression, normal 90 lvl progression and INSANELY hard progression to 100 lvl of a skill. Make sure that you have altered your server skill multipliers accordingly. Enjoy!

While we are developing multiple major features like Special attacks, the new GUI, new tunneling system, full DX11 support and so on, we must not forget about smaller - yet still important - features. Some of those features are implemented in this current patch, along with some bug and crash fixes. 
We would also like to mention that a serious bug has appeared in a recent patch, that we still can’t properly locate and fix https://lifeisfeudal.com/mantis/view.php?id=3570 . If you have any additional info about that bug, please, let us know via a comment on that page.

Life is Feudal Version 0.5.5.1 https://life-is-feudal.org/blog/17/life-is-feudal-version-0551/ https://life-is-feudal.org/blog/17/life-is-feudal-version-0551/ Wed, 01 Jul 2015 22:06 CEST
Dear Players! Efforts of our development and art teams have resulted in long work days with a strong focus on new player models, DX11 implementation and seamless integration of all of that into LiF. You can see a small glimpse of what's coming in our E3 trailer. Together with continuing bug-hunts, overall fixes and tweaks to gameplay mechanics it takes a lot of time. That unfortunately has postponed character customization and female models in our game. :( We know that a huge part of our community, especially the female players are waiting for it desperately. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and will do everything possible to put female models in the game ASAP! 

Nevertheless, now we almost have properly implemented mounted combat mechanics with lancing and a HUGE amount of different bugs and crash fixes in this patch! You are definitely going to like it! 

Patch notes (ver. 0.5.5.1):

New features:
  • Mounted combat is implemented. You can use any one handed or Hand-and-a-half weaponry while mounted to slash your foes! 
  • Lancing is implemented. Lance is the only two handed weapon that can be used while mounted. In order to properly use your lance, you have to coach it by reaching a galloping speed of your horse and holding the Attack button (Left Mouse Button by default). Make sure to release your attack button just before an impact of your lance with your enemy to actually couch it with a full force for a short period of time. 
  • Pike and polearm weapons now have more stopping power vs mounted players forcing their horses rear on their hind legs. That can cause a forced dismount of a rider 
  • Added tooltips for abilities in the Skill book and Hotbar 
  • Unarmed combat mode is activated instantly after depleting all throwable weapons ammo 
  • Ctrl+click in inventory will transfer a targeted item in your previously opened container. For instance, open your Inventory, open your warehouse, Ctrl + click a couple of items in the warehouse - and they will be moved to your inventory. No drag’n’drop is required. We will disable that functionality for loot bags and gravestones in next patches in order to make combat looting and quick loot longer and harder. 
  • Alt+click on an item in container will autostack all similar items into one pile only inside that container 
  • Player velocity is now taken in account for throwing and ranged weaponry. For instance Javelin will fly further if you run forward while throwing it 
Bug fixes:
  • Fixed a client side crash that prevented users from training warhorses 
  • Visible terrain seams should no longer be that visible anymore 
  • Knocked down characters now drop movable objects that they were carrying on their backs 
  • Inventory and Character GUI windows are now properly updated if any values are dynamically changed during gameplay 
  • Health and Stamina rates of players that you are inviting to a unit are not visible anymore, until they actually accept that invitation 
  • Watching someone attacking shortly after drawing weapon now doesn't result in playing a bunch of draw animations 
  • Sounds should no longer loop infinitely at random places 
  • Fixed and added a couple of sounds for different action 
  • Fixed incorrect doubling of weight, when moving whole containers (bag, sack, pouch etc.) in inventory 
  • Fixed a bug when you could parry with ranged weapons 
  • Some more minor bug fixes 
  • Fixed some serious client side crashes

This patch is mostly devoted to fixing several old and new bugs in Life is Feudal. We have also implemented collision detection of your hands with your victim - so if you swing your two-handed sword against your enemy at a point blank range, you will hit them slightly with your hands, rather than missing completely and performing a full swing into nothing. Clinching some two-handed weaponry is a more viable tactic now ;) 

Patch notes (ver. 0.5.1.0): 

New features:
  • Added player arm hit detection system that works while performing swings with any weapons 
  • Added beehives mechanics. Honey can now be extracted from beehives every morning. More about beehives: http://lifeisfeudal.gamepedia.com/Beehive(new) 
  • Implemented mead alcohol production 
  • Repair ability no longer decreases Maximum durability of buildings and objects 
  • Any 2 handed pole weapon can now be disarmed with unarmed combat 
  • Changed camera behavior on horses, on foot and in “overlook mode” (hold V) 
     
Bug fixes:
  • Provided a fix for random crashes while connecting and loading other worlds 
  • Fixed bleeding wounds blood loss speed to more adequate levels 
  • Horses should properly execute walking and running animations now 
  • Fixed client crash related with invitation to guild 
  • Horse sounds should no longer loop after its death

Dear players! According to your responses votes[lifeisfeudal.com] we are releasing a slightly unfinished version of basic horse mechanics. They are stable and you should not have any serious issues with them - still, it is Early Alpha after all, so be prepared for anything. We have warned you! 

Along with horses, we are presenting alcohol brewing (mead and honey making will be introduced later). Alcohol is a necessary ingredient in alchemy and excessive use of spiced alcohol will result in certain effects for your character ;) We all know that a large amount of alcohol might lead to some bar brawls, that is why we have implemented unarmed combat: a good way to solve your disputes without killing someone accidentally! 

Alchemy potions are now in fact alcoholic cocktails, which can provide you with a set of positive or negative effects. These can also be used to poison melee weapons! 

Jewelry now provides you with an increased “Luck” effect, and affects almost EVERY action that you perform in your world. Now is a good time for you to level up your Jewelsmith skill! 

Oh, and we have a weeklong -40% discount for our game. This could be the last chance to get a HUGE discount on our game before we have our full release launch. Make sure to let your friends know! 


Patch notes (ver. 0.5.0.1): 
    New features:
  • Horses mechanics are partially released. You can tame and breed horses and use a new building to train them into warhorses for riding 
  • Unarmed combat is implemented. It is available for everyone, but it can only be somewhat effective with a high level of Unarmed skill. Disarming of polearm weapons with unarmed parrying has been implemented 
  • Alcohol brewing crafting chain is implemented. Look out for new Brewing tank object in your construction menu 
  • The wine press can now be used to squash apples and grapes to produce raw materials for a Brewing Tank 
  • The cooking pot can be used to produce malt for further beer brewing in a Brewing tank 
  • You need any bottle of alcohol now to finish creation of your alchemy potion. Alchemy potions are now called “cocktails” 
  • Cocktails (ex. potions) will now give positive or negative effects upon drinking and can be used to poison your melee weapons 
  • Placeholder alcohol intoxication (“Full”) visual effect implemented 
  • Some crafting outfits now provide a significant bonus to several crafting skill values 
  • Luck now can be increased by wearing jewelry. Luck affects almost all crafting and combat abilities and actions now 
  • Tamable wild horses now appear in the wilderness 
    Bug fixes: 
  • Fixed a recent bug with some terrain textures appearing black and some fields becoming paved roads and vice versa. Server maintenance must be performed to have these textures fixed 
  • Fixed bug that allowed you to stack unit formation bonuses that resulted in an imbalanced amount of positive effects 
  • Fixed camera bobbing in some cases, especially during melee combat 
  • Fixed some cases where you were unable to see the blocking/parrying animation of your enemy properly 
  • Numerous minor fixes

After countless hours of development and QA testing we have finally achieved a stable and fast patching system for LiF:YO. You should notice significant decrease in time when connecting to heavily terraformed worlds. We have extensively tested this system internally, but there will always be rare bugs that slip past the team. We will be glad for any feedback, thank you! 
Keep in mind that at least one ingame midnight maintenance should pass in your world in order for our patching system to kick in. 

Along with this long awaited functionality we have also implemented explosive naphtha in our game. So you can create special naphtha grenades to throw at your enemies or load bigger naphtha barrels to mop up larger areas ;) Keep in mind, that our explosion tracks all fragment trajectories, so it is quite easy to hide from the explosions behind bigger trees, walls and trenches! 

Patch notes (ver. 0.4.1.2): 
  • Implemented a proper (proper for LiF:YO scale) patching system. Client loading times should decrease significantly, and rely more now on internet connection speed 
  • Implemented an accurate naphtha explosion physics model. Multiple fragments can hit multiple body parts, depending on proximity to the epicenter of explosion and cover that might block shrapnel 
  • Shields should now properly absorb damage and crack faster under axe-like weapon blows 
  • Active blocking and parrying should properly slow the player now 
  • Pounce (jump on shield) can now be activated only if you are wielding 2-handed axes or polearms 
  • Implemented proper stamina consumption for shield bash, parry and blocking 
  • Shield bash can now be performed only with Shield Mastery lvl 60 and higher 
  • Shield bash now prevents character from moving, can not be performed while jumping 
  • Some minor fixes for the trebuchet interface and operation 
  • All crafting activities drop their results on the floor if your character is overburdened, instead of consuming resources and producing nothing 
  • Wild hares and domesticated rabbits now drop proper amounts of ingredients upon being slaughtered 
  • You can no longer heal already dead characters ;) 
  • Fixed a bug that occasionally removed some tree collisions 
  • Fixed the scale of some arrows and throwable projectiles 
  • Numerous other minor bugfixes

Dear players! Unfortunately this April patch does not contain all of the initially planned features. We have had to postpone the World loading optimizations feature because it affects very sensitive core program mechanics and we want to spend more time on polishing and testing. 

On the brighter side, throwing weaponry and trebuchets are here! Later in May we plan to implement explosive naphtha grenades and explosive trebuchet charges - our first AoE (Area of Effect) weapons! 

Patch notes (ver. 0.3.7.2): 

  • Implemented the first siege weapon - Trebuchet. Make sure you have at least 50 Intelligence in order to use it effectively ;) You can read more about its mechanics on our Wiki[lifeisfeudal.gamepedia.com] 
  • Implemented throwing weapons: knives, axes and javelins. 
  • Bugfix: Mallet now loses durability while being used for pavement 
  • Bugfix: All crafting devices are now properly damaged while using them

  • Bugfix: All crafting results are now capped by a Real skill Value of a corresponding crafting skill 
  • Bugfix: Already completed objects no longer use their contents if completed again in GM mode

While Judgement Hour is active ALL alignment penalties will not be active and claims protection is void. That is time for you to wage war with someone without fear of lowered alignment consequences. Otherwise, killing a member of any other guild will sacrifice some points towards progress of your own guild monument! 

Next month we plan to provide you with basic siege weapons, so Judgment hour will be your time to break into someone’s settlement or protect yours from others breaking in. 


Patch notes (ver. 0.3.3.3): 
  • Implemented Judgment Hour gameplay feature. Do not forget to adjust its schedule on private servers and ask your server admins to do that on a dedicated ones 
  • Made a major particle system rework. In current and following patches you will notice more adequate particle effects in our game (fire, smoke, blood etc) 
  • You can now grind in our game :) ! Quern-stone is now working and should be used as a tool to grind wheat into flour. Windmill with advanced mass grinding mechanics will be implemented later 
  • Slightly shifted camera position in War Mode. We will provide a more user friendly camera behaviour in one of the next patches 
  • Optimized network code - effect will be hardly noticeable, unless you try to gather a crowd of players 
  • Added voice chat indicator. You can move it or close it while in Interface editing mode (F10) 
  • Added Shadow distance video setting. You might want to tune it down to reduce “morning lag” that is caused by long shadow render. Shadow mechanics will be fixed in one of the following patches 
  • Added a button in your settings that will reset all “Don't pop up those messages” flags on your client 
  • Fixed private claim of objects (timer) that worked improperly under some circumstances 
  • Fixed multiple issues that appeared after a player in GM mode entered and left camera mode. (Still GM Mode is not really safe for all in game interactions.) Use it only when you actually need to do something godly and then turn it off for your and your world safety! 
  • Fixed a server crash, when you are kicking an offline guild member from a guild 
  • Fixed some damaged state assets 
  • Fixed map dialogue buttons 
  • Multiple minor bug and crash fixes

This current patch is dedicated to providing more fixes to our claims system and to client side performance in general. We have also implemented a Repair Ability, so you can now repair damaged structures and objects with different sized Repair Kits. 


Patch notes (ver. 0.3.2.6): 
  • Implemented a Repair Ability. Repair Kits of all sizes can now be crafted by anyone with Construction materials preparation skill.

  • Added damaged models to different objects and buildings. Most of these models are not final! 
  • Significantly lowered base decay rate for all objects 
  • Fixed a serious bug that caused some objects to disappear in certain circumstances 
  • Fixed and optimized network code 
  • You can now Inspect objects to learn about their durability data 
  • You can no longer use trash items and soil for sacrificing. They will not provide sacrifice points

Life is Feudal Version 0.3.0.0 https://life-is-feudal.org/blog/9/life-is-feudal-version-0300/ https://life-is-feudal.org/blog/9/life-is-feudal-version-0300/ Sun, 01 Mar 2015 13:55 CET Life is Feudal : Your Own has been updated to version 0.3.0.0 on Steam with guilds and their claims.

We are glad that we have finally achieved a rather stable implementation of the guilds and claims system! From now on, you will be able to build, and later upgrade, a special monument, which will create your guild and will claim an area around it to protect anything that is built there from EVERYONE except members of that guild. 

To learn more about claims mechanics, we suggest you to take a look at the updated wiki page here: http://lifeisfeudal.gamepedia.com/Claim 

The decay system has been improved to take claims into account. If your building is FULLYcovered by your guilds claim, it will be completely protected from decay. However, if ANY of the building cells are outside the claim, your building will start to decay and eventually will disappear in 2-3 in-game days. However, decay rate setting is set to 0 (no decay) by default on all servers, so it is up to you to change it or not. 

Nightime should be a BIT more comfortable since you can properly equip a torch now and even fight with it. In one of the following patches we will teach wild animals to be afraid of fire and run away. 

P.S. We RECOMMEND to server owners to wipe your servers. It is NOT required, but recommended, since gameplay has changed significantly with guilds and claims mechanics and a fresh start will take those changes into account.

Patch notes (ver. 0.3.0.0):
  • Added guilds, guild claims and guild monuments management mechanics 
  • Added “Trespassers!” ability, which will allow you to spot trespassers on your guild claim, thus marking them as criminals 
  • Added a new server setting, which changes rate of object decay outside of claims (0 by default) 
  • Added an equippable torch as a source of light and an improvised weak weapon 
  • Fixed a nasty exploit, where you could pass thin walls and doors with certain conditions 
  • Fixed randomly occurring weird animation twists and bugs 
  • Fixed some client crashes 
  • Numerous client side bug fixes 
  • Updated flax stem-fibers conversion. Flax production should not be so tedious now.

Life is Feudal Version 0.2.11.4 https://life-is-feudal.org/blog/8/life-is-feudal-version-02114/ https://life-is-feudal.org/blog/8/life-is-feudal-version-02114/ Fri, 30 Jan 2015 00:46 CET
Dear players! Sorry for the long patch delay. We are mostly consumed with bug fixes and the new claims system development along with all the PAXSouth-related rush. But we are working hard to stay true to our Roadmap and provide you with gameplay updates along with bug fixes and optimizations in a timely manner! 

P.S Roadmap updated. 
Patch notes: 
  • Small pits that are dug on terrain surfaces will mend back into a smooth terrain after 1 in game day. That is our first step towards a proper decay system and countermeasure against griefers that have dug random pits inside your castle to prevent further building 
  • Implemented untrained weapon usage. If your weapon skill is lower than 30, your attacks will be 2 times slower and will inflict less damage because of that 
  • Fixed a notorious rendering bug, when paved roads and some crop fields were rendered in black in a certain circumstances 
  • Some bag recipes are fixed and should work properly now 
  • Fixed numerous minor bugs and provided some optimizations
