14th Jan 2020 archive patchnote

  • A new command /refresh has been added to aid with some graphical glitches that occur occasionally; this command will freeze you in place for a couple of seconds, while refreshing the view of objects on your screen.

It also aids with decorating objects on plots that appear to move up while adjusting them; refreshing after adjusting these items will subsequently show the objects in their correct position.

  • An issue preventing criminal timer from being refreshed during PVP combat has been resolved
    - Line-of-sight requirement for NPCs to call guards has been disabled for Stealing; normally the NPCs in town would wander around and change their perspective, making theiving more challenging and rewarding in some cases, but at this time the NPCs are set to not-wander, so we're doing this to balance in-town thefts until NPC wander has been re-enabled.
