NPPAngband 6.0.0 released
« on: December 01, 2012, 08:41:40 PM »
The final NPPAngband 6.0.0 has been released.

I changed the version numbering system, as I recently realized that software programs numbered less than 1.0.0 are condsidered experimental or beta code. NPP has been stable and playable for over 8 years, so this version is numbered 6.0.0.

A complete changelist is below. The main features of NPP 600 are:

Revised mimic code.
Revised player ghost code.
Completely revised quest system, including 4 new types of quests.
Labyrinth levels (and Labyrnth quests)
Greater vault Levels (and greater vault quests)
Wilderness level quests.
Arena Level quests.

The links are:

Windows Binary:

Quest rewards are now generated when the quest is chosen in the guild, and the player chooses their quest reward from a menu after they complete the quest, rather than the game trying to figure out the best reward for the player.
