Yes, but walking can also help catch errors you may miss otherwise.

Hi guys!!

I'm leaving the Draegoni Realm maps for a bit while you all explore current version on the Test Server. I'm taking the next couple of weeks to do some maintenance on the Dwarven Lands maps.

I will be increasing/expanding walkable areas on each outside map allowing for more mobs being dropped into them (as L would say - hehe!).

Please take this opportunity to provide your comments/feedback on any/all DL maps so I can review and incorporate where/easily as possible.

Regards
Z

Hello all!!

Today I explored the new maps and I only found an annoying effect. When you follow the path in the snow, the edges of the path seem to "flash" (I don't know what to call this effect).

Regarding DL maps, you could move events house to another map. I think a good option is Roth's Haven. When new players explore this map and find this house, a message could explain to them the requirements to be able to access.

Best Regards

The 'flashing effect' is typical when objects overlap each other and they are placed at the same height. If you can provide a map_name +
map coord at the location I can fix it.

Thanks

The problem is this effect can be found on the entire path on any map.

For example, here a path begins: You are in Alroth:Draegoni Domain - Haade [near 145,226]

If you walk following the path you can observe the 'flashing effect'.

Thank you again for your work.

Ok...i see that effect too...its not where objects overlap, its along both sides of the road and not what I thought might be. I can see this anomaly in the map editor too and  can be seen in along the edges on the normal sandy road although not to the degree on the snow roads.

I can't do anything about this effect Yulin. I'm wondering if there is a graphics parameter in OL Client 'tools' that can mitigate this effect, maybe community can provide some info.

Update!

The updated DL maps have been released into Game as of this post. You will noticed that there are more open areas than previous versions allowing for more mobs to be dropped onto your little heads :)

Be sure to explore all Dwarven outside maps so your familiar with the changes...just a suggestion :)

I'm going to return to the Draegoni Realm maps for the rest of this month so they are available by end of Sept.

Ok...so I missed Nov 11th :o

A little background to what has impacted my last schedule. 6 weeks ago, I auditioned and was accepted to join a new progressive country rock band project. My time has been consumed on material selection (covers), rehearsals and auditioning other musicians to fill out the band requirements. Hopefully by next summer venues will begin to book bands again.

I have had some time to still work on Orc maps and I'm hoping to get something onto the Test Server in the next couple of weeks. Stay Tuned!! :)

Hello Zian:

You are in Alroth:Dwarven Lands - Zerimor - Goldenside South Farms [near 286,163]

Here there is a blank tile on the grass (closer to the rocks).

You are in Alroth:Dwarven Lands - Alkh-Endune - Castle Dulgoth [near 217,109]

On the tab map you can read the tag "Algotha Caverns" but that is the entrance to "Algotha Mountain (AM)".

The entrance to Algotha Caverns - North East is here:

You are in Alroth:Dwarven Lands - Alkh-Endune - Dulgoth Village [near 253,181]

Thank you very much.

As stated previously, the plan was to make this realm (maps) available for game release by the end of December, however its looking more like end of January, 2021.
