Server Update 2018.2: "Banbury"

mikelaurencemikelaurence New York CityPosts: 5,366Member, Administrator
Small server update tonight!

NEW ACHIEVEMENTS
- Journeyman (This is a new beginner achievement that players get for completing the tutorial worlds)
- Grandmaster Scavenger
- Legendary Scavenger

NEW MECHANICS
- First mine/craft now gives 150xp instead of 100xp
- First kill of a creature gives 250xp

As you can see, there's some focus here to make leveling up a little quicker at the beginning of the game. That's by design to hopefully make the game a little more appealing to new players.

    I got the Journeyman achievement and feel inordinately proud of myself for it.

    Was it automatic?

    Totally agree!!!
    Deepworld is not the easiest of games for new players, especially when trying to figure out what exactly you should do!

    One thing that REALLY threw me off when I started is official quest worlds having a whole bunch of plaques overlapping each other and misleading. Good thing deepworld has so many players that are kind and helpful.

    It would really help if worlds with quests would have official plaques show up in different color on the map. :)

    I wish the quest line would continue a bit further! It seems like it sort of ends in the middle of something.

    Report from @ChatotTheParrot that "world search for generating worlds on pc seems to have stopped"

    Yes! It just binged at me the second I logged on. It was like a reward for simply EXISTING.

    Hopped on to see what all had changed, mined a single block, and then boom, 2 level ups out of nowhere, hurray for free XP!

    Yes Yes And Yes. Recently I entered Pocklington and I couldn't find the HQ for like 2 minutes http://www.deepworldgame.com/worlds/Pocklington first there are misleading plaques that say butler bot/real butler bot hq/etc.. and second there's just to many of them and the HQ's plaque is just a regular white one which gets buried under them

    I think replacing the old plaque with "new" red one will already make a big difference

    I was thinking that some of the legendary achievements be geared to some of our higher level players, meaning make it nearly impossible to achieve. I would like to do something other than set personal goals. I’m not trying to take xp from newer players, just want a random challenge. @mikelaurence

    Is Android still going to be a thing or nah @mikelaurence
  • TheBlindEyeTheBlindEye Posts: 684Member
    Hey @mikelaurence, since Science Update is there any possibility to actually be able to craft protectors using some machinery that’s already in the game? It’s seems like it’s a little bit unfair that you have to spend money to get protectors... is there any plans to make paid items to be craftable?

    Working on that this week ... I had taken a long break from it, but it’s closer to ready than I realized.
    Hype!!! But please make sure that android release won’t be the same as it was with windows

    Just trade with people who do buy them. Or loot them. Or get them with crowns.

    Yeah, but it’s way more natural to craft them than buying them with crowns... again, just an interesting thought.

    Also I think the “anti-patch” solution is great, except one point. The karma is again neutral after reloging. I think it would be better if it stays permanent or at least for a week.

    Tested in already explored world with no players

    Mike, could we have a way to see what worlds have our protectors, because I have stuff missing in worlds.
  • derpdeederpdee Dark side of the moon.Posts: 1,213Member
    @mikelaurence I have a null “9 to be exact”. Not sure how I received them or why I have them! I can not give them away, I can not trade them and I can’t place them. I think this is what has my inventory all fubard.

    Please help?
