Updates

From Veloren Wiki

A page about all the updates in Veloren. All notable changes to this project will be documented in this file : https://gitlab.com/veloren/veloren/-/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md

The format is based on [Keep a Changelog](https://keepachangelog.com/en/1.0.0/), and this project adheres to [Semantic Versioning](https://semver.org/spec/v2.0.0.html).

Unreleased

Added

  • Setting for disabling flashing lights
  • Spectate mode for moderators.

  • Added a Craft All button.
  • Server: Vacuum database on startup
  • SeaChapel, greek/latin inspired dungeon for ocean biome coasts
  • Entity view distance setting added (shown in graphics and network tabs). This setting controls the distance at which entities are synced to the client and which entities are displayed in. This is clamped to be no more than the current overall view distance setting.
  • View distance settings that are lowered by the server limit (or other factors) now display an extra ghost slider cursor when set above the limit (instead of snapping back to the limit). Limits on the view distance by the server no longer affect the settings saved on the client.
  • HQX upscaling shader for people playing on low internal resolutions
  • Pets can now be traded with.
  • Crafting recipe for black lantern
  • Added redwood and dead trees

Changed

  • Use fluent for translations
  • First tab on Login screen triggers username focus
  • Certain NPCs will now attack when alone with victim
  • /kill_npcs no longer leaves drops behind and also has bug causing it to not destroy entities fixed.
  • Default present mode changed to Fifo (aka 'Vsync capped').
  • Old "Entity View Distance" setting renamed to "Entity Detail Distance" (since this controls the distance at which lower detail models are used for entities).
  • Present mode options renamed for clarity:
    • Fifo -> 'Vsync capped', Mailbox -> 'Vsync uncapped', Immediate -> 'Vsync off'.
  • Item pickup UI now displays items that members of your group pick up.
  • Improved shiny water shaders
  • Tweaked armor stats

Removed

Fixed

  • Fixed npc not handling interactions while fighting (especially merchants in trade)
  • Fixed bug where you would still be burning after dying in lava.

  • Client properly knows trade was cancelled when exiting to the character screen (and no longer tries to display the trade window when rejoining)
  • Cancel trades for an entity when it is deleted (note this doesn't effect trades between players since their entities are not removed).
  • Fixed bug where the view distance selection was not immediately applied to entity syncing when first joining a server and when changing the view distance (previously this required moving to a new chunk for the initial setting or subsequent change to apply).
  • Moderators and admins are no longer blocked from logging in when there are too many players.
  • FXAA now behaves correctly at non-1.0x internal resolutions
  • Pets no longer aggro on pet owners after being healed
