Weather and construction
We are pleased to announce the launch of two new features this weekend.
Firstly is the launch of a detailed weather system, factoring in wind, clouds and rain, all of which will affect the temperature of your enviroment. As a result of this, clothing appropriate to the weather conditions is now required.
The second aspect, and probably the more interesting is the launch of the new player building construction, allowing players to build their own homes for the first time, provided they can gather the necessary raw materials. In this initial launch several house templates have been provided, with many more templates planned for launch in the future, covering everything from a wizard’s tower to a knight’s castle. Of course, besides being a symbol of prestige, these houses also offer some functionality, from larders which slow food decay to gardens where herbs can be grown safely.
Further details of both these systems can be found online.
