1.7: MARVELOUS MYSTERIES

Recommended Posts

Ylands - Update 1-7 - SocialMedia 1920x1080.png


HIGHLIGHTS

Exploration: Mystery Ylands

Let us introduce Mystery Ylands! You may find all kinds of dungeons, puzzles or just about anything that might be of interest to you. Polished terrain generation - finally we won't mix all the biomes together!


Exploration pack demo

If you want to know what all the fuss is about, just give it a try! The Exploration demo is not time limited and you can get the DLC straight from within the game without having to leave it, if you do decide to go for it! Others can visit you on your Starting Yland, but if you yourself would like to venture beyond the borders of your yland, you will need vessel in the form of the Exploration DLC. And don't worry, you can keep the progress you made using the demo!


Exploration: Starting Yland region map

The Starting Yland helped us utilize Mystery Ylands to be independent of the current yland limits. It was needed to ensure backwards compatibility for the players with exploration progress and will allow cross-platform save selection.


Exploration: crafting progression rework

When it comes to crafting, we have changed how it's presented to the players, to make sure crafting UI is less overwhelming and more to the point. Recipes have been split into core and optional, with core recipes getting unlocked with crafting progression, and optional recipes, which are mostly for decorative items, awarded for exploring random sites. You can now craft most items straight into the world, which is particularly useful for building blocks, so let your creativity off the leash and show us what you can do! 


Mobile exploration

It's finally here! Mobile players can now enjoy exploration now and meet together with PC players. There are some limitations for the mobile players, such as terrain modification. You can now start playing on the PC and continue on the mobile as well (or the other way around!).


Mobile ambient improvements

Improvements on mobile ambient lighting and unifying lighting during the day. For the 1.7 update, there is a big improvement of ambient lighting and water in the game now uses dealiasing normal map.


Mobile UI rework

Let's face it, it was very much needed. If you try the mobile version now, you will see significant changes, such as better legibility and a more intuitive UI experience.

 

Editor: Object Brush

A new tool allowing users to quickly span a large number of objects over the terrain. It works much like a brush for all the things you may want to place in your creations efficiently.


Editor: Stunning actors

Creators can now be made able to stun characters, animals and monsters with the script.


Editor: Custom UI

Allows to add buttons to the static game HUD and interact with them via mouse cursor. Now you have all the buttons under your command!


Editor: Text scripting 1.7 tweaks and improvements

Various small improvements and fixes as reported from users and QA. Polishing certain 1.6 features and added some more.


Editor: Documentation 1.7

With the automatization of the wiki documentation, we will make the editor a much friendlier environment. From now on, all the info will be at your fingertips within our Wikipedia, automatically right after the update.


Terrain generation additions

This is something we are still working on, but for 1.7 we were able to add some interesting mechanics which allow us to create a more interesting environment (not only for Exploration!).


AI: Swipe attack
Besides motion, light and heavy attack, a fourth AoE attack with low probability was added for all enemies.

I played briefly last night. 

I ran into some cool buildings.  Were these built by devs or from community members?  Can we alter them?

The island I first landed on was HUGE!  Thank you so much for that.  The terrain was so much better.  I prefer the more jagged old style, the new style is rounded, but I was so pleased to see that overall the islands  have much more variability.  I found myself marking places to come back to and maybe build. I haven't been inspired by the landscape in a long while.

I will spend more time playing to see the new changes.  Thanks for all you do, dev team.

Yes @bojo2736 the old jagged style was better imo. But this new style is also cool. I only checked 2 maps and I liked them.

Soon, i guess for 1.8 we will have flowing water. That will be fantastic 😁
