  • fixed linux mouse
  • fixed linux 'null item tile' prob for cursed/unid objects

24 Dec

  • added xmas present for 2010

20-22 Dec

  • euo linux build

14 Dec

  • add dm command for locking maps to prevent people from entering them
  • added /delete command for permanently removing characters
  • added 'wand of happiness' - zap on your pet and it will never get unhappy and run away! (it will get no worse than 'rather unhappy')

13 Dec

  • added /arms (or /weapons) command to toggle visibility of your own weapons on your avatar

( it won't work client side, ie show your own av, until next patch - but you can hide your weapons from everyone else in the meantme)

9 Dec Moa 0.99.3

  • updated moagl with flipped sprites
  • rotating models in moagl!
  • agro/threat boxes darker in euo, transparent in moagl (to work better with the health bar)
  • pet dyeing - buy a 'wand of pet dyeing' from the pets merchant at the cash shop - zap your pet (or any creature actually) to allow it to be dyed. Dyes sold separately (same dye used as for chests) - only works well on greyscale pets - same system as for avs - so you can't dye a red dragon brown
  • wand of dragon blanking - zap this on a dragon pet to make it white and dyeable - does not affect the pet stats - combined with pet spell customisation, you can basically turn a red/black dragon into any dragon you like
  • added gnarled staff + artifact
  • renamed taming wand to wand of pet constitution

8 Dec

  • avatars and monsters that have a distinct profile now flip to face the correct direction when walking, attacking and casting - ie, you/they don't look like they are running backwards anymore - applies to cows, dragons, wolves, horses etc

(if anyone cares this was a lot of work in previous patches in the making - it required player facing directions ... first done with ships, then shields/block/mounts, it also required tile flipping .. which was added with visible weapons. I just added a flag to tiles.txt for tiles that need to be flipped, added monster directions and FOV updates ie client/server syncing)

  • client now draws self large properly

  • fixed binding item to 6 with inventory mouse click

2 Dec

  • tweaked ai spell selection so that a mob that only knows a 'rare cast' spell like XC won't spam it (this is so you cant strip all spells except XC off a black drag and expect it to spam it) - if a mob can't cast a spell, it will then instead attack or chase.

- weaker player must be 70% your level or less (eg you 100, them <=70) - attacker's xp is reduced to the average of the attacker & target's xp - attackers level & stats are then reduced accordingly - eg attacker has 100,000 xp and killed player has 50,000, then the attacker then has his/her xp reduced to 75,000 - their lvl is then reduced accordingly and stats scaled down
