    NEW
    • Sandfield dungeon re-enabled. Multiple floors will be added in the near future, as we're almost finished with a system for creating complex/fun dungeons fairly easily.
    • Grunty's grow (very basic) activate grunty food near your grunty and it will grow. Hoping to make it a bit more interesting in the future, and at some point add in a system to allow you to ride them around and ram em against people/walls.
      • Kid, Adult, Noble.
      • Possibly rare grunty's appear (haven't been tested)
    • Grunty food added around sandfield.
    • Two shops added to Mu Hel, one sells some potions not in Aqua Polis.
    • Gott statue in the dungeon. Falls apart when item is removed.
    • Right click inventory options. Drop item, delete item, inspect item.
    • "F2" Opens the character customization menu. Click colors to change the color, click the equipment name to remove or add it. Choose a class from the drop down list (currently weapons are setup for all classes, so there is no difference). Will become more developed as time goes on, proportion options, tattoos, hair options, eye color options, etc..
    • "F3" Opens the flash mail window. You will receive a notification in the right hand corner of your screen when you have new mail. Clicking the message opens up your flash mail. You can send new messages by putting in the name of the user you're trying to send to. Messages can be deleted by right clicking on them. Going to be implementing Member Address's at some point, so you'll be able to use those as well.
    • NPC Chatting, NPC's have basic chat functions.
    • Partying works fairly well. Message party members using "/party [message]" in chat. Leave chat by left clicking yourself and choosing to leave. Not sure if EXP distribution/treasure works correctly, so I would like to get some feedback if someone gets a chance.
    • Instant message "/[PlayerName] [message]" will send a private message to the person.
    • Quest giver, located where the old guild guy was. (Right outside aqua polis's entrance). Two example quests are there, they give reward money. More quests in the future. As well as much more advanced quests, the new system allows for near infinite variety of quest and will only get better with improvements.
    • Added some misc sound effects, and music changes. More to come, will add some of the fan submitted works, and will add some more actual sound effects, as things are a little empty atm.
    • Live event system started and functioning. (Admin will be able to setup events while game runs)
    • Added donations button on the front page. as well as a list of the things we need in case you're particularly interested. If you're curious about anything there, feel free to let me know.
    • Someone inquired about the saving account info. The game's setup to store and retrieve account info without any issues atm. But things are a bit tight, SO, until something changes we can't really afford a separate sql database atm.

    Thanks for the update, but the date in the title seems off :p.

    Also, thanks for reposting the controls. A lot of new members were asking for them on your last update.

    You're the best, and keep up the good hard work, and we will let u know of any more problems we encounter.

    *works faster at work so I can get home and try the new stuff*

    I was on a few minutes and my game and my PC started Glitching. I had to run my anti-virus on my PC in order to stop the glitch. (is this a worm?)

    also,I have feeling there's an AI in game.:(

    The death bug that teleported you behind the gate and looped your death was fixed. Now you correctly spawn back at the gate. But when I tried to fight, I didnt see my animations for attacking. Anyone else having trouble fighting? I have the sword equipped.

    I really wish I could edit my posts in this thread so I could add all the bugs and glitches I find can be added to my last post instead of posting more and more.

    Anyway, When I went to the holygrounds it ported me underground. I ported to the location again and it corrected it. Just wanted to let you know it is still doing that.

    Found a bit of a bug, when you are talking to a shopkeeper and you are done, after closing the menu I had a hard time moving around. My character seemed to be frozen in place but once I opened another menu such as inventory or the setting menu I was able to move.

    Also I've begun adding the updated thread link to the topic on the IRC channel.

    I hate to spam the thread more but I kind of have an idea for the next release. Along with putting the controls up here, why not also put them in a .txt file and throw it in the zip file? That way people could look at that as well as on the forums. Or at least until the in-game character mapping works.

    For those who don't know if you press PG DOWN it makes your character sit. Not really useful but it makes for awesome pictures.
