Tiberius posted about a short downtime this morning, to squash a few bugs.

This is a small patch to fix a few bugs with the last update.
  • Fixed: Outfits are mixed up: elf outfit has santa gloves & boots; and vice versa

  • Fixed: Glacial Spike and Holy Bolt are not working in some zones (but rezoning sometimes makes them work again)

  • Fixed Gentlemen and Lady outfits to not say they can be gifted

  • Fixed: Angel wings were missing their texture

  • Boosted the reward for "The Art of Toymaking"

  • Auto-kicking when trying to gather with 0 vim does not happen until 20 clicks (up from 5)

  • The options button is now available to be clicked even before signing in

  • Changed the "Particle Clipping" slider so its range is the same as the "Object Clipping" and "Creature Clipping" sliders


UPDATE:
Unfortunately, after this patch was finished, the Christmas event zone was not working, so the game is in the process of being rebooted again. We will let you know when we hear any more info.

2nd UPDATE:
The game is back up, the Christmas zone is working again, and the patch has stomped those bugs.

The Christmas update went live this morning!

Image


    New Features and Content:
  • Christmas is here, and that means the Grintcha has returned to Ardent to spread his own unique style of Cheer and Joy. This time he has brought some of his cronies with him.

    Improvements:

  • The color of Whisper was changed to make it more distinct from moderator chat.

  • Necklaces that boost condemn will no longer drop, only necklaces that contain the actual spell will now drop.

  • Pumpkinize should no longer upset citizens of ardent.

  • New "Particle Clipping" and "Light Clipping" advanced graphics sliders for adjusting when particles and lights stop showing.

  • Graphics: The "Object Distance" and "Mob Distance" options in Advanced have been changed to "Object Clipping" and "Creature Clipping" and are now based on pixel screen size. Also, object distance clipping has been generally improved. Some players will see a noticeable improvement to the frame rate.

  • For the packs that provide extra bag space, we made the description accurate (explains which bag is unlocked, and correctly says 30 slots, not 25).

    Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed the bug with block so that now block works correctly even in the world chat channel (hopefully).

  • Fixed: Eating insects no longer causes Ardent Society Membership to disappear until you relog.

  • Fixed a very rare bug that would cause a gfx memory crash on some older cards on Ultra at nighttime (Fizzbin!).


Have a Merry V&H Christmas!

This past summer, the staff of this forum were encouraged to try a game recommended to us by one of our newer members. I approached this new game, Villagers and Heroes of a Mystical Land, with a certain degree of trepidation. I did not feel at that time that we were likely to find a game that would measure up to the one this forum began with, Free Realms, but I was determined to at least give it a try in the hope that it would mesh well with the theme of this site, and the expectations of its members. As I began to dig into V&H, I discovered to my dismay that I had overlooked one of the most fundamental aspects of what makes most any game a pleasure to play; the community within the game itself. In hindsight, it is a little difficult to overlook the V&H community. While I found the staff and moderators of this game were much in tune with its players, it was that tightly knit community of players itself that drew me in. The players welcomed us without reservation, and were quick to offer us assistance in a variety of ways. I do not think it would be untrue to say that we owe our current presence in this game to that community of fellow players; a community to which we now belong. We made many new friends beginning with our first day, and some of those friends went above and beyond our expectations. I would like to take the time to name them all, but I believe they will gladly stand aside so that I might mention one of those friends in particular.

Starry Knight, known at the Official V&H Forums as Snowy Kat, was among the first to welcome us into the V&H community. It is because of members like her that I became convinced we had found a community worth belonging to.

As most of you know, we lost Starry to illness on the afternoon of December 6th, 2014. Sadly, we did not have much time to get to know Starry, but it does not take much time to understand when you have stumbled across a remarkable person. The owners, staff, and members of the Legends of Mayhem forums would like to take this moment to thank Starry for that which she has left to us. The friendly atmosphere in-game, and at the V&H forums are fueled by the love and efforts of players like Starry. Regardless of where we spend our time, it is the Starry Knights that light our days.

Of all the comments I have seen posted since Starry's passing, this excerpt posted to the V&H forums by Sarah Otter, speaks most clearly.

"This little game exists because of individuals like Starry, keeps us lit – her passion, her analytical critiques, her unending willingness to always help out others. A burning flame has gone out tonight. Thank you, Starry, for sharing your warmth with us." ~Sarah Otter

Sarah tells us the team of "Mad Otter plans on creating an in-game tribute to Starry, so that she will forever be immortalized within Villagers and Heroes."In addition to this, Mad Otter will assist Starry's guild, <Sapphire Dragons> in hosting "The Celebration of Life for Starry Knight," which will be held on Saturday, December 13th at 8 pm EST."

A follow up post will be made to this article on the the Villagers & Heroes board for those seeking additional information.



Our condolences to the family and friends of Starry Knight, and our gratitude to you for sharing her with us. She will be missed, and she will be remembered.

The holidays are officially on their way in Villagers & Heroes!
The game's version of an Advent Calendar started on December 1st!


Image

That's right, folks... it's now December! So when midnight rolled around in your time zone, the Ardent Holiday Calendar popped up!

Make sure to log in to your account each day, from now through Christmas Eve, December 24th. If the calendar does not pop up for you, you should see an icon for it by the mini-map, with the Shop Bag and Lucky Card icons.

Click on the present for that day and the item will automatically be added to your Inventory bag. Make sure to open it on the character you want to receive it, since it's only one per server and it's not tradeable.

The items have a count-down timer on them, which means you have only one week to use them.

I will be keeping a list of what I receive each day. As far as I can tell right now, the order of the items is random, but I would think that we would each get the same total list of 24. Please feel free to post what you receive, so we can compare.


Happy Holidays!

Attention, all Villagers and Heroes!: :king

UPDATED

The following patches have been made due to certain errors that surfaced after the Harvest Update went live.


English Patchnotes 2.37.0 - Wednesday December 3 2014

* Improvements:

  • Changed the zone loading progress to be slightly smoother.

  • Balanced the sale price of the golden sheep. It is now slightly lower.





* Bug Fixes:

  • Blocking
    1. Fixed a problem where the block list was simply not accurate (you can see the block list by typing /block).
    2. Fixed a bug where when someone would invite someone to party, guild, etc., and the gui would offer the options "yes, no, and block", that the block option did not actually work.
    3. Fixed a bug where some of the time when blocked another character who was not nearby, it simply did not work. Now it does.
  • Fixed: insects with the "Sheep Treat" description would cancel the Ardent Society Membership effects until you relogged.
  • One of the shapes in the game (Celestia's Savage Symphonic Bow) did not have a 3D shape defined properly. This was causing anyone who had that bow, AND anyone who came near someone with that bow, to force a verify assets the next time into the game. This has been fixed.
  • We corrected some quests that promised gold rewards using the old system (so the rewards promised were 10,000 higher than in reality).
  • In Mezzanine, we adjusted the position of the teleporter Kelund to make more accessible.
  • Fixed a crash bug causing by tracking any of these quests: Composer's Apples, Cherry Chest, and Lifelike Authenticity.
  • Fixed: the Lucky Card icon next to mini-map was not showing up.
  • Fixed several cases where items would be missing the first time their container is opened:
    1. Items received in the mail.
    2. Items in crates/chests.
    3. Items in the shared vault.
  • Fixed: enhancement runes wouldn't show up after being added until the player zoned.
  • Improved some navigation for Skarn
  • Fixed some typos and spelling errors.
  • Added an icon for Fish Eggs
  • Fixed: In the quest that requires you to get indigo in Memorial Pond, the quest journal tells the player to get gold dust, which doesn't exist in game anymore.
  • We fixed the bug nodes in Mounds. There are now 5 additional nodes that are specific and give quest items for Blasio. Only these special nodes will help in the quests. All other nodes now have a 0% chance to drop the level 15 quest items.
  • Fixed: I am stuck in a hole, my location is at 267 107 111 in Pyrron Courtyard. I tried /unstick but it only left me in the same place.

I apologize about the delay but here is the update for 11/14.


Optimizations

Occlusion

  • This optimization should improve frame rates in areas around complex player-made voxel geometry and cave systems.

  • We've done a lot of behind the scenes work on Texture Atlasing.

  • This should resolve the issue with materials sometimes showing as dirt or something else entirely.

  • Textures that are closer to the camera are actually being displayed at a higher resolution.

  • This also fixed an issue that would sometimes result in a very long shutdown time.

  • PC's that are on the lower end of the Min Spec should see an improvement in performance when setting their Texture Quality to Low or Medium.

  • On the Development side, this opens the door for a significant increase in the number of materials we can use at any given time.



Keywords

The first iteration of the keyword system is in! This system allows items and abilities to communicate with each other. This means that abilities will be marked with a keyword and items will have bonuses that apply only to abilities with the specified keyword.

Each ability on the already existing weapons has been marked with a damage type keyword that is reflective of its overall flavor. The keywords are as follows:

  • Soldier’s Blade is now Physical

  • Mercenary’s Staff is now Water

  • Slayer’s Bow is now Fire



Armor

There are several new temporary pieces of armor that are craftable for free on the Forge. These are gloves, helms (non-visible, sorry), and chest pieces. Helms and gloves are stat based items that grant base stats. Each chest piece has an associated helm and glove set.

Chest armors have major passive bonuses associated with them and many stats (some new). These bonuses can be keyword specific or generic and often times allow you to create a new style of play for yourself. The armors are as follows:

  • Battle-Forged Plate - Using a Physical Dash ability gives you a temporary shield equal to 5% of your maximum Health.

  • Barbed Armor - Opponents that deal damage to you are attacked back, taking (0.25 Offense + 5) damage. Can only be triggered every 1 second.

  • Blood-Soaked Leathers - While your Armor is at 0, your Critical Strike is increased by 100%.

  • Fiery Tunic - Your Offense is increased by 10% while using Fire abilities, but Fire spells cost 20% more energy.

  • Cloak of Quickness - Decreases your cool downs by 30%, but lowers your Offense by 15%.

  • Frost Coat - Each time you damage a Frozen or Snared opponent with a Water ability, they take an additional (0.05 * Offense) damage.

  • Pursuit of Power - You gain 10% Armor Steal, but your Armor is reduced by 20%.

  • Soldier’s Breastplate - Increases Offense by 55 when you are below 25% Health.

  • Slayer’s Vest - Increases Critical Strike by 200 when wearer is at full health.

  • Mercenary’s Robe - Scoring a critical strike instantly heals 25% of your maximum Energy. Can only be triggered every 2 seconds.


Accessories

There are also many new accessories available on the Outfitter’s Table. These accessories are created to support the play styles that the weapons have and the play style changes that the armors promote.

The accessories are as follows:

  • Reinforcing Charm - Incoming Physical Armor heals also restore an additional 2%of your Health. Can be triggered once every 2 seconds.

  • Ring of Shielding - Scoring a critical strike grants you a temporary shield equal to 5% of your maximum Armor.

  • Liquid Iron Orb – Fire projectiles deal (Offense * 0.09) additional damage every 0.5 second over a 1 second period. Can be triggered once every 3 seconds.

  • Band of Flame - Fire attacks deal (Offense * 0.12) additional damage in a 5 meter radius around the target. Can be triggered once every 2 seconds.

  • Crystal-Shard Earrings - Water abilities lower the cool down of your abilities by 0.2 seconds.

  • Sigil of Piercing Cold - Your Offense is increased by 10% while using Water abilities.

  • Earrings of Precision – Your Offense is increased by 8% while using projectile abilities.

  • Excruciating Anklet - Your Offense is increased by 10% while using damage over time abilities.

  • Ring of Crushing Might - Physical attacks cause your target to bleed, dealing (Offense * 0.06) additional damage every 0.5 second over a 1.5 second period. Can be triggered once every 3 seconds.


Please check these out, test the different combinations and let us know what you think!


Flight on Claims

  • You can now fly on your claim, or any claim you have permission on! To enable flight, head to the Workshop and craft the “Builder’s Bauble of Flight.”

  • Click the item to activate Flight. While activated, you can use Space Bar to ascend, and X to descend.



Claim Expansion

  • We've increased the number of expansion claims you can have, from 5 to 8.



Notification Window

  • There is now a Notification Window that compiles all of your notifications (mail, upkeep reminders, etc.)

  • More important notifications (PVP Queues, etc) will still pop up in bottom right hand corner, in order to increase visibility



Props

Festive Props

  • The holidays are approaching, so we thought you might like some decorations for your claim!


Ogre Doors

Added two new Ogre Props for your Workshop builds:

  • Intricate Wood Door (Left and Right)

  • Intricate Copper Banded Door (Left and Right)

  • Miscellaneous signs

  • Construction Sign

  • Stop Sign

  • Direction Sign


Image


Modal Improvements

  • Added modal bars for prop placement / interaction.

  • Added button for Tilde (Change Mode)

  • Removed all of the tool hints from the right side, since the modal bar should cover all of those controls.


Bugs / Misc

  • Re-exported the icons for the Sci-Fi props to match their in-game tint.

  • Fixed an issue where the Grappling Hook location was too low when you grappled in.

  • Blocking and then unblocking another player from your Block list should now work correctly.

  • Added Control Hints on the map, on how to place Waypoints

  • The Halloween trophy should no longer flip when viewed at a different LOD.

  • Picking up a prop should no longer leave you in "Build Mode."

  • Pressing SHIFT with a Heroic Movement item equipped will no longer close all UI windows.

Image

It is a difficult task to post news when one does not know all the facts, but news is news, and here are the facts as I know them.

First, the Spooky Town event in V&H will come to a close next week. The exact date that it will end has not been determined, but according to Sarah Otter at the V&H forum, we will be given a minimum of a 24 hour notice. When I have the exact date I will edit this article to include it. In the meantime, if there are tasks you still wish to accomplish in Spooky Town, be advised that time is short in which to do so.

Second, when Spooky Town closes, the Harvest Celebration will be installed in the same patch. Out with the old, and in with the new. So, what exactly is the Harvest Celebration? Well... the only thing I am free to share at this time is the screenshot at the beginning of this article. I will share details as soon as I am allowed to do so, but the most important detail to share at this time is that a new world event will be launching in V&H sometime next week. I regret that I must leave it as something of a mystery, but new events and content are always something to look forward to, and I am looking forward to being able to share what the folks at Mad Otter have in store for us... "coming soon."

Third, If you have been following the discussion at the V&H forum, there are some improvements in the works for Ranching. It has been insinuated that these changes would be implemented ASAP in a future patch. Could this perhaps be that patch? On this particular issue, you will know as soon as I do, but be assured that we will do our best to post any changes to Ranching should they come to pass.

Looking forward to an exciting week to come in Villagers and Heroes, and hope to see you there.





* EDIT:

This just posted on the V&H Forum,

"Hi, Everyone,
If all goes well, the Harvest Patch will go live tomorrow (Wednesday at the latest.) So please consider this your 24 hour notice that Spooky Town will be leaving at that time. Thanks!"

Wizards of Level 60 or higher will need to speak to Alhazred in the Balance Classroom at the Krokosphinx to assist with the delivery of a mysterious (and possibly dangerous) package.

The greatest of challenges await Wizards of Level 100. Dworgyn, in Nightside of Wizard City, will guide you in accepting the challenge of a great (and familiar) foe within Castle Darkmoor!
