Version 126.96.36.199, a stable release, is now ready for download in the account manager.
I was already happily working on new features, but the last night revealed another client crash and entity inactivity issues. Not really sure what to do about that, other than to keep pushing bugfix releases :<
But to alleviate the constant update annoyance I made it easier to update for windows users. When you check "Other Downloads" in the account manager you can find an Update/NoMusic installer version of the game. This installer contains the full game, except for the music, and does not uninstall the previous version of the game. That reduces the file size by a factor of 10. Let's see how this goes.
You'll also be getting a few small tweaks that were supposed to be for 1.5.2. They are all minor and shouldn't cause more breakage. I should probably be doing proper stable/development branch style game development, but meh >.>
Let's see for how long I can do this until I shoot myself in the foot
On the price of Vintage Story
First of all, thank you for participating on the forum and twitter polls. I greatly enjoyed reading everyones feedback and it helped me weigh in the pros and cons. A surprising 73% and 87% respectively of you decided that raising the price is acceptable. Starting from 1.5.2, the price will be set to 10 EUR/12.5 USD on the Website and the Humble Widget. I'll also send out a 50% off coupon for everyone that purchased the game so far as a thank you for the early support. Whoever purchased the supporter addon will receive a second 50% off coupon.
Anyhow. Here's whats new.
