    Chariots sound awesome; would that be a two person mount where one person drives while the second attacks?

    Well now let the theory crafting begin XD

    Thanks for a larger view guys. I'm sure we are all eager to see how you implement these things.

    I feel like housing was skipped over, it's a feature a lot of people care about and it could use some changes.

    So what about optimizing the game to run on multi-core CPU, adding millions of hand placed sound emitters, revamping all the textures, and maybe making the freaking map into a circle.

    Maybe all this and more in the Darkfall 2020 Patch "Agon Reborn" ???


    Soon as windows cuts support for Windows 7 & 8 this game will literally have 4 maybe 6 years before no ones computer can physically play it without using parts from our current time period.

    I just hope Darkfall sicks around longer then 3 or 4 years this time around.

    This confuses me. I read it as " no one will be able to run it unless they have old equipment" I'm just curious.

    Most of this has been discussed at various points in time so you never know. I don't really know where we stand on multicore support at the moment, though its something I think everyone wants. (I wouldn't hold my breath for a round map). I know it's not the answer you're looking for, but until we have absolute decisions we can't promise something.

    Optimizing the game is always going to be an ongoing task, this was more of a vision of our design goals.

    Not sure what you mean about Windows 7 & 8? The game plays fine on Windows 10 currently. Also the end of support for Windows 7 is 2020 and Windows 8 is 2023.

    crafting professions.... ROLES, you mean ROLES.

    wtf is it with you guys and screwing over crafters as often as possible. not only am i no longer going to log in due to the harvesting changes, i'm also going to encourage my friends to go elsewhere. to games that do not make changes that do not NEED to be made. you keep screwing with the game that we loved, and there will be nothing left but arena combat. AV remade, is what you guys are turning into.

    This is a fucking update! If you could actually do all that, this game will be even more amazing.

    Look at you guys eating this crock of shit. It's just a basic outline of what we all know the game needs. "Yeah Mob AI is bad, we want to make it guuuud". "Lore needs work, we'll do that". The only points in this "update" that gives a vision properly is the sandbox section, travel section, territorial control part, the crafting section, and the New player experience section. The rest of it is just saying this is bad, we'll fix it but we don't have a concrete plan on how to do that yet so we will give you a vague answer.

    At least in new dawn they give a full spectrum of what they want to do and what is to come. Under all those points should of been their plan and ideas where some of the update gives but most of it just is a generalized point we all know needs work.

    4/10 update. Needs work.

    Id like to see a revamp to magic, something like, lesser magic, greater magic, witchcraft, and spellchanting being normal magics, rest of the classes should be "rare" schools. With their spells only obtainable through mob drop/chest drop scrolls.

    would bring back that feeling of "oh shit" in the early NA days of pvp, when youd be fighting against someone with magic.

    would promote farming of certain mobs, as well as increase the time people will spend on developing their toons.

    ... a man can dream...
