Walked the AF map and found many 'shimmering' issues around the igloo path areas. Did not take note of the lag, but did find that turning camera angles was slow and jerky in some areas.

Can do a more extensive walk around to pinpoint the 'shimmers' and the jerky areas if you wish to give actual coords.

The shimmering areas not a big deal for me...however would you fight a clops' horde in those 'jerky' areas?

Hi Guys!

Note that as of today updates to Alroth maps (for access on Test Server) are being rolled out to everyone via OL's auto-update service.

More map details have been added to all maps and the shipping routes are now working. When you get the updates take a ship cruise around the Alroth Continent and have a look around.

Remember, that there are no Insides or undergrounds included at this point. Any cave entrance you find will not work and any door with a lock will stop access.

And...looking for all your comments, suggestions going forward.

Enjoy!

Regards
Z

Next opportunity will be after the next inva weekend unless I move unusually fast, since I don't like making updates to Main later then Thurs morning.

Also, I'm coordinating with IM's to make sure any of their .def files are fixed or not affected by the location renaming. So that adds a few delays as well.

Thank you for all your hard detailed work Z, it's appreciated!

Completion of the Orchan shipping routes/connections consist of updating 4 Alroth Maps; Thirat (TT),  Ibohand (ID), Jerieth (JR) and Mystic Haven (MH).

These maps will be placed on the Test Server and distributed to Players (via auto-update) at the next opportunity!

At this point, all Alroth Shipping routes are now in place. Once available, please explore and provide comments/suggestions.

Enjoy!

Z

To add to Z's updates, over the last months I've helped him gain many new features to help him in his work. Just recently he gained a way to specify in a Map .def that the TabMap should be published even if indoor or underground. That simplifies publishing the TabMaps and reduces the risk over overlooking those updates.
