echo_silence_layoutHey guys,

I’d like to apologize for this week being kind of dry on the blog post front. I’ve definitely let some of the comm relays drop offline, and frankly, that’s unacceptable. Fortunately, we’ve been busy little raskvel back here. A brain-trust of our best and brightest has been looking over the Phaedra II planning document (formerly called Xandam), and Zeikfried promptly skewered half my ideas. Still, we’re laying some good groundwork there to have an alternate starter planet with a little more plot to it than Mhen’ga.

As an example, one of the ideas involves fighting your way across post-apocalyptic big-rigs driven by aggressive hyena tribals. Yeah, Mad Max and fallout influences will definitely be felt there. No actual writing is done for yet, of course (aside from a few Codices), I’m too busy jamming my face into Emmy’s crotch and hoping that I can find a completed quest somewhere in there. Last night I managed to work out 1,000 words or so of stuff to set up the last stage of her quest. I might be making it slightly more complicated than I originally intended.

Goddamn feature creep.

0.6.31 Changelog:

  • Kara Quest 2 Dungeon should be active. It might be super buggy, but it should also have a pretty solid chunk of new combat for you to play with – as well as some party-ish combat! (Thanks, Gedan!)
  • Lots of new items for the above Dungeon.
  • Some new busts were added to the game, by Shou and JayEcho.
  • Nonesuch’s Sera expansion is added to the game thanks to Jacques00.
  • Figured out how to set up a .swf wrapper to upload to furaffinity to skate around their 10MB restriction for posting public builds there. We may broaden its use in time, but the current version has issues with caching.
  • Tech Disruptor attacks are now AoE (I might revert or play with this one).
  • Overcharge’s multiplier now increases when the PC unlocks multiple attacks in order to keep it competitive.
  • Enhanced Dampeners now actually does something.
  • Shield boost has been tweaked.
  • You shouldn’t be able to start Emmy’s quest unless you learn her name.
  • An incorrectly linked room has been fixed.
  • Assloads of other tweaks and fixes.
