Finally, I find out to what degree my generational RP backstory doesn't match the Lore. It's so much less fun that way.
It's still to be applauded for its comparative wealth of detail, confusing as some of it gets:
Not more than five generations ago... * * * No one heard from them for many days until a carriage dragged by a mule came back. The bodies were beaten and mutilated almost beyond recognition and the little girl whom the saddler loved lay on top of the pile. Her blue lifeless eyes pierced his soul as he lifted her off the carriage and carried her slowly through the settlement and out to the open desert.
It all looks so empty... I think SV should add wagons or some kind of carriages or something so that a group of people can travel together at the same speed and quickly. (Without forcing people to go mounted combat everywhere)
Or Molva Bus! Cmon SV... pls pls pls...
The jungle part is the thing I'm most interested in (together with the AI update). But I don't like what I see so far. The textures and the object are nice. But I think there should be some kind of bushes like in the current jungle (but not that big). I think the special thing about fighting in the jungle is that there are a lot of places to hide. Also the jungle is nice to set up ambushes. And currently I can't see this in this picture. It's too open and the objects aren't high enought to hide behind them.
On the programmer side we are starting to see UI fixes coming in from the new dedicated UI guy and we hope that we can solve most of the UI issues before the patch. Apart from that most of the time right now for the programmers is spent fixing new bugs from the test server reported by the QA but also old things that have been floating around in the bug tracker.
