Patch notes: 1.7.0.0 beta - Archaeology changes, animal cages and items on tables

Posted on June 25th, 2018 07:15 PM EST


Hi Everyone,
This update brings several major things including updates to our archaeology system, animal cages, and the ability to place items on tables. As usual the beta will be available for a week or so before it becomes the live build which is currently planned for Tuesday, 3rd of July. As usual, any issues please report them via the forums.

-First edit.
We've bumped the version up to 1.7.0.0 as to avoid issues with new clients connecting to older servers.

Changes and Additions:
Archaeology changes:
  • Archaeology items can now be found in all metal types:
    • If you investigate and find a metal fragment that is NOT ore or a lump, it'll get the "metal" material.
    • If the fragment you found would have had the steel material (instead of iron), it'll get the "alloy" material instead.
    • Any existing iron fragments can be combined with metal fragments (they will be converted to "metal" material when you start the combine action.
    • Same deal with steel and alloy fragments.
    • When you complete an item from fragments of the metal material, the final item will have a chance to become any base metal type (iron, tin, lead, gold, silver, copper, zinc) depending on how well identified the fragments were - heavily weighted towards iron.
    • When you complete an item from fragments of the alloy material, the final item will have a chance to become any alloy metal type (steel, brass, bronze) depending on how well identified the fragments were - heavily weighted towards steel.
    • If alloy fragments are extremely well identified, upon combining they will have a small chance to come out as a moonmetal (seryll, glimmersteel, adamantine) - though steel is more likely again.
    • "metal" material fragments can only be combined with other "metal" fragments, and "alloy" material fragments can only be combined with other "alloy" fragments.
  • New:  You can now create an archaeological journal to help record your investigations. ( Special thanks to Wurm Unlimited modder Bdew for some ideas in implementing this!)
    • Add report pages to the journal by activating paper or papyrus sheets and right clicking on the journal - Add report.
    • 22 reports will fit into the journal.
    • Data will be added to your reports as you investigate and gather information.
    • New information will be added to the report as you continue to investigate.
    • Once you've found enough information for a single report, you will be able to use that report to help find that deed again whenever you want.
  • Changes:
    • New statues have been added.
  • Fixes:
    • Fixed a bug which allowed investigating to bypass max inventory weight.
    • Paved tiles should properly reset the investigate flag.
