Alliances

Bringing alliances, including alliance chat and member management, in-game; players will display Alliance name underneath their own.

Crew System Fixes

Moving to a better, more reliable backend that should resolve some in-game Crew system issues.

Public Test World

Releasing a test server that will have in-development versions of the game; available to all Founders.

Reviver Charge

To combat attackers having no consequences when attacking others' ships, revivers get a charge that partially depletes if player revives from distance; reviving when the charge is empty sends a damage shockwave across the whole ship. Docking the ship on an island refills the charge. This is waiting on fixing unfair deaths, in order to not punish non-attackers.

Character Crouching and Sneaking

Coming Soon

Features we're preparing to work on, tentatively for the next calendar quarter

Territory Control

Alliances can claim islands; with enough islands controlled, entire zones will belong to the Alliance. Contesting a territory requires attacking on foot as well as ship combat.

Alliance Emblems on In-Game Objects

Player & Ship Logout Rules Update

Player given option to log out alongside ship to ensure its safety; additional specific rules to lower frustration while preventing combat logging.

Log in on Moving Ship

Player logging in on a moving ship without falling behind.

Updated Cursors

Change mouse cursor based on tool equipped, and color based on object moused over.
