Villagers & Heroes Patchnotes 2.32.4 - August 20 2014

Contributed by Ravix

This patch is what I would consider to be a rather huge update and there are so many exciting and great changes. There are in fact so many changes, that I have had to split them up in separate posts. Check out "Player Release Notes for 2.32.4" for all the changes.

Here are some of them:


New Features and Content

A very large pass at combat was done, including class balance and additional features surrounding combat. These were done to help balance combat and make it increasingly fun and interesting. Coupled with these changes is a huge improvement of social features and the addition of Rapid Crafting!


General Improvements

Shift-clicking while the vault is open now swaps an item into or out of the vault, and shift-clicking while a vendor is open quickly sells an item.

This includes "Rapid Crafting": You can craft in bulk if you have the resources you need and you can specify how many items you want to craft.

Weapons now have two additional paid gnogmentation sockets both for feats/spells and for abilities, bringing the total to seven.



Chat Improvements

The friends window now has buttons to quickly mail or whisper to a friend.

Some group commands now work even on players in different zones. They are used as follows:
/friend add King Leo
/friend remove Banshee Queen
/invite Calypso
/ginvite Marat



Combat Improvements

The changes include; "Bounty Assists", "Combat UI Improvements", "Damage over time effects can now critically strike", "All epic Elder feats and spells" and more!


Spell Fusing

We have added spell fusing! Spell fusing is the ability for classes to work together, combining certain powers (fusing) to create more powerful effects. This first implementation of this system has only a few 'recipes' but more to come later!


Class Changes

In general, the changes focused on a few areas; "Balance", "Fun skills and play styles", "Developing more options for each class to choose from so that each class has several different ways they can specialize", "No repeat talents (on talent trees and weapons/armor)", "Fixing critical issues with each class".

Landmark Update Notes For This Week's Downtime 08/06/2014

Dexella has posted that the planned game update has been rescheduled to Thursday, August 7 at 10:00am Pacific, 11:00am Mountain, Noon Central and 1:00pm Eastern. Here are the Update Notes for this weeks downtime. They were posted by Fairan over on the Landmark Official Forums.
The thing that I am most excited about is that guilds are going to be added.
<Mystic Mayhem> will soon be making legends in Landmark.
:nodding

Guilds
Guilds are here! Join up with your friends and make a name for yourselves in Landmark.
Click here to see all the details of this robust system.

New Materials
Glass Voxels are now here! This material can be crafted at a forge or smelter using sand. This material is located at the bottom of the Stone category.
New Ice Materials! We've taken advantage of the new tech we made to support water and glass, and made a new Ice textures that are actually transparent. Note that we did not overwrite the current ice texture, but instead added these new ones in addition to the old ones.
We've also made a small change to the Water material. We felt (and received feedback) that the water was a bit too static, so the material animates a bit more.

Multi-Screenshot functionality for Claims
Much like how you can take multiple screenshots for your Templates and Player Studio items, you can now take up to four screenshots to display your claim in the Gallery.
New Props

Since SOE Live is imminent, we wanted to release some cool props for you to decorate your claim with - so let’s have a party! (Images below!)

We've also added all of these to bundles that can be purchased in the Marketplace.

New Outfits
We've added Planetside-themed tints to the Commander's Gear, which can be purchased in the Marketplace!
Choose from the New Conglomerate, Terran Republic, or the Vanu Soverignty!

Claim Upkeep Change
The maximum time that upkeep can be paid in advance has been increased to 15 days, up from 8.
There will now be an upkeep payment reminder sent out 3 days before a claim expires. The previous reminder occurred 1 hour before expiration.

Voxel Vision
VV has received a bit of a revamp from the code side, in order to increase performance.
Curved / contoured surfaces should now display with more accuracy.
The client should no longer stall significantly when attempting to display detailed geometry.
Attempting to build with Voxel Vision active should not result in single digit FPS.

Steam Friends
Upon login, all Steam friends that are also logged-in will be auto-added to the Landmark friends list, as long as they aren't ignoring you, and vice-versa.
This only works if each player is logged into Landmark. A Steam friend that is logged in, but not into Landmark won't get added until they actually enter the game while you are also in.
Once added, a Steam-enabled user won't need to log in with steam to retain the Landmark friends association (unless a friend is removed, obviously).

Bug Fixes
Fixed an issue with the Sickle in the Starter Pack not functioning correctly.
Deleting your surfacecache folder will no longer result in missing terrain.
Addressed an issue that let you continue to swim in the air, after exiting a water volume.
