Hey folks! Today we want to show you some preview screenshots of the upcoming update.
It will introduce some hostile npcs, including groups of hostile bandits roaming the forests during night and also skeleton warriors guarding the dungeons. You will still be safe when staying home, but you have to be careful when exploring the world.
Of course there will be also an option to disable hostile npcs when creating a world.
On the other hand, the update will also improve the npc AI as well as the collision detection. As a result, animals should no longer be able to walk through walls.
Last but not least we're also expanding the plugin API, so it will be possible to create custom items (tools, weapons etc) for Rising World. We will prepare an example plugin which offers an easy way to load custom items into the game.
Unfortunately we have no ETA for the update yet. We try to get it ready as soon as possible, but recently there were some unexpected changes introduced to Steam which have a big impact on Rising World and its future development. We can't say much about these changes yet, but we will definitely keep you informed about the current status.
