Game Engine 45

Cap'n did some boring behind-the-scenes stuff.


Game Engine 45.1

  • Added the ability for us to scale monsters' level to whatever we want, so that we don't have to make nine copies for all different tiers. Now we just need one tier and it'll scale properly!
  • Cap'n did some boring behind-the-scenes stuff.

  • The damage popup now has a different display when the monster hits an Unlucky Strike (like, a Lucky Strike when they have negative LUK).
  • Updated the graphics for the monster's SP when it's going to launch a skill attack next turn.
  • Player SP regen is now affected by your healing modifier.
  • Minor added functionality to make things easier for me.

    More a balance+status update than an engine update, but I figure I should mention it here.

    1) At the start of combat, your SP is increased to [one standard Melee skill] if it's less than that. That's 395 SP at level 150. Nothing's different if your SP is higher than that.

    2) The Initiative Boost status now gives an extra +50% damage to weapon attacks/spells/pet attacks/guest attacks on the first turn if you got the jump. Some terms and conditions apply:
    -- You need to have the Init Boost status active when rolling initiative.
    -- The boost is tied to the Init Boost status. If the status isn't active, then you don't get the boost.
    -- It doesn't have to be the same source of Init Boost. You can get the jump in Whispering Raiment and change to Abyssal Hydrocampus while keeping the boost. You can even change to Geocastellum in between and you'll still have the boost once you swap to Abyssal Hydrocampus.
    -- This only applies to the player. Monsters don't get bonus damage.

    I kinda coded up this fix, and then forgot about it, and then accidentally rolled it last update. Whoops!

  • Hypercrit now only affects player stuff. There's a new Hypercritical Pet status for pets (and a [currently disabled] Hypercritical Guest status for guests, but you'll probably never see it).
  • Hypercrit is now multiplicative. Instead of +50% crit rate, you now do *6. Either way you go from 10% to 60%, but now it interacts nicely with other stuff.

    (Thank you 133spider!)
  • Added colors to the Battle Log to better distinguish actions:
    Blue - Player
    Red - Enemy
    White - Everything else

  • The clear log button has been changed top to the letter C.
  • The hide/show buttons have been changed to -/+. - displays if the log is open and + displays if the log is closed.
  • While disabled, the battle log will continue to log in the background -- the battle log also clears after every battle.
  • When battle log reaches the cap of x messages (default 100 - changeable in settings), it will clear the oldest x/2 messages.
  • Fused the battle log damage messages into one.
  • Updated the popup messages appearance.

    Game Engine 45.77
    - Decreased stat bonuses to blocking from DEX/8 + LUK/40 to DEX/50 + LUK/50
    - Increased stat bonuses to BTH from stat*3/40 to stat*4/50
    - Monster blocking has been increased and monster BTH decreased to compensate
    - Increased STR's bonus weapon damage from STR/160 to STR/80
    - Fixed some messaging when the engine estimates attack damage.

    Currently in testing:
    - Ranged damage now starts at x0.75 damage and increases by x0.06 per turn, to a max of x1.29 damage. This applies to weapon attack and spells. Skills+spells get "half" the modifier, starting at x0.875 and gaining x0.03 per turn, to a max of x1.145
