Blight Updates Blight Client 404.368.0 Istaria Community Manager
November 24, 2022
Features:
  • A new automatic pref backup system has been added - this system will automatically make backups of critical player setting files any time they’re changed - the following files are automatically backed up on change:
    • communications (UICommunications.def)
    • controls (UIControls.def)
    • hotkey_layouts (various)
    • hotkeys (UIHotkeys.def)
    • interface (UIPersonal.def)
    • inventory (UIInventory.def)
    • knowledge (UIKnowledge.def)
    • map_markers (UIMapMarkers.def)
    • notepad_character (UINotepad.def)
    • notepad_global (UINotepad.def)
    • planning (UIPlanning-*.def)
These backups can be found in the player prefs auto_backup folder (i.e. Istaria/prefs/[shard]_[charactername]/auto_backups) and contain a copy of the most recent version of the file as well as up to 100 (changeable with the ClientPrefs_Common.def pref maxAutoCharFileBackups) older versions. In the event of something going wrong with a file, one of the older backups can be restored to replace the original file. Currently there’s no ingame way to access these backups, but for this initial release Istaria support and power users will be able to use the files to restore older versions and will require copying of the old backup file to the appropriate folder.
  • The plot planning auto-save feature has been updated and will now automatically save the plan any time something changes (including moving and rotating a structure) and has been made more reliable.
  • If the game interface file (UIPersonal.def) is corrupted or unreadable, the game will first attempt to load a backup of it via the UIPersonal.bak file in the same folder. If this file was loaded, the game will notify you with a popup once you’re ingame. If there was a problem with the interface and it was unable to restore the backup, you’ll also be notified. The auto-backup feature saves UIPersonal.def too - in the future we’ll make a more user-friendly way to access those!

Community News Silvane Istaria Community Manager
October 17, 2022
We noticed that Silvane was near completion on Chaos. Congratulations for your dedication. We’d like to tell you more about it.
 
The Silvane event is a side content of Stronghold of Nature update, the main course being the story quests at the Tower of Nature. Its goal was to provide a one time shard scale event where adventurers could protect crafters during their work, to bring the players community through a common project and also to offer a teleporting system close to the tower.
 
We’ve heard you wanted more than just crafting and we have listened. We asked AmonGwareth if we could go further, he took a puff on his cigar and told us: “Come get some.”. We understood it as a yes.
Ghosts in the rebuilt structures were meant to be used for “future content”. They will be put to good use with the next content update: more stories about Silvane and unique purchasable items will be available.
We are sorry to not provide the new content earlier, but we need to admit: Chaos players were faster than we expected.
 
Thank you for your patience and for playing Istaria.

Live Updates Live Client 404.322.0 Istaria Community Manager
October 6, 2022

Fixes:

Live Updates Live Client 404.320.0 Istaria Community Manager
October 4, 2022

Fix:

  • Fix for Dragons being unable to gather logs and Bipeds unable to gather azulyte

Client 404.319.1

Features:

  • The Item creation window now widens the left pane instead of the middle when being resized.
  • The number of charges a Blighted item has now appears in the inventory grid view.
  • Added an error message if there’s an issue with the world cache that’s stopping the client from starting.
  • The “You remember you have a better tool” feature has returned and is hopefully fully working this time! This feature can now be turned off entirely via an option as well now.
  • The detail object system (which places objects within buildings and lairs) has been updated to function more consistently and ensure objects are always placed in the right location within buildings.
  • Right click on pets to set a custom scale so they can be much smaller

Fixes:

  • Fixed an issue where the inventory bulk and stack capacities on the client wasn’t matching what it really was on the server.
  • Fixed an issue where the invisible Casting bar can cover up UI elements, preventing those elements from being clicked (this was the cause of hotkey buttons that couldn’t be clicked or other window clicking issues).
  • It’s no longer possible to trade with NPCs who have no capability to trade (before the trade window came up, but nothing happened).
  • Consignor feedback message will always state the correct consignment period (28 days)

Linux Users:

If you are a Linux user, the updated patcher forces all the game files to be lower case, which may cause issues. Please see the KB for steps to correct the problem.

Live Updates Live Client 404.298.0 Istaria Community Manager
August 23, 2022

Features:

  • If the client is started and there’s no login credentials available, the game will properly close and ask you to use the launcher instead of crashing.
  • Miscellaneous updates to some flavor NPC scripts.

Fixes:

  • Fixed a crash that could happen if minimizing or alt-tabbing from the game, opening another program, then maximizing the game again.
  • Fixed an issue where a window could have visible borders but have nothing inside it, usually seen when logging in with the window minimized.
  • Fixed an issue where quest turn-in question marks would appear above NPCs that you do not currently have an active quest with.
  • Blighted items will now show more information in their name (such as the species restriction if there is one), this previously only displayed in trades and the Consigner window.
  • Mind Bolt now properly uses mind sounds instead of spirit sounds.

Sim Fixes:

  • Fixes to combat aug handling so attack mods are applied in the correct order for damage tags (most recent aug has highest priority)
  • Blight items popup details for loot
