Very nice---looks like the Alphabet Assault is well underway on the bestiary with probably not that many A's left unrepresented.   8)

There is a beta module available from te4.org - http://te4.org/sites/default/files/game-modules/veins/veins-0.11.1.team. Report any missing tiles in the Feedback section of the forums. I want to get the best tileset I can before 1st Dec (the ending of the modules contest)

A hotfix has been released because I managed to pin down and fix the cause of intermittent inventory bugs and/or lua error messages.

I just put up a new version, nicknamed "Can't see me".

* bug fix: decrease hp properly if your Con is lowered

Congrats on another release---good progress.  Here's to hoping 2014 sees a good number more release for this and the opened up (classic) Incursion.

A new version was just rolled out, grab it from Git now or from ModDB later - MD5 checksum still is nil, so nope, not getting a .team file on te4.org.

The version is nicknamed "A drow, a human and a halfling", here's why:


Inter-racial cooperation - those three adventures (human barbarian, halfling cleric and drow fighter) have banded together to slay my hero.

No, this is not a scripted encounter, just RNG at its finest.



CHANGELOG:
* bug fix - no more monsters spawning in walls

* point buy now working as intended and resettable
* stat increases every 4th level now working
* d20-style encounters of multiple monsters
* implemented Luck, which makes rare items more common
* ability to load/import/recreate older characters
* pseudo-ID, auto-destroying known cursed items
* item feelings when entering a level
* humanoid NPCs can now have character classes
* deities for clerics
* coded in a lot of new terrain

Nice gains!  Hopefully whatever issues keeping it from packing up nicely on te4 get sorted in the near future, as more visibility is always a good thing.

Re: The Veins of the Earth BETA "A drow, a human and a halfling" beta 4.6
« Reply #88 on: March 31, 2014, 10:36:58 AM »
Another Monday, another release!
This time, it's named "More power to fighters".

Get it from Git now or from ModDB later.

CHANGELOG:

* bug fix - reverted Luck influencing items
* bug fix - undead, elementals and others made immune to criticals

* new tiles: centipede, krenshar, displacer beast
* new feats: Armor Optimisation, Shield Focus; Improved Strength, Improved Dexterity, Improved Constitution, Improved Intelligence, Improved Wisdom, Improved Charisma, Improved Luck
* fighter bonus feat selection
* wizards can now select familiars
* improved starting equipment selection, now taking race into account
* magic items as starting perks
* magic items can now increase Luck, too
* types and subtypes now influence immunities

P.S. T-Engine still not giving me md5, reported the issue to DarkGod as Grey has had the same with his 7drl, DataQueen.
P.P.S. A lot of this wouldn't happen without access to Incursion source code, which gave me ideas on how to implement some stuff.
