Particle effects have a great potential to add a very aesthetically pleasing appeal to your game. So I opted in and got to work. In the preview image, you can see my character having an active purple magic spell. Only other purple magic users or other players with a high awareness stat will be able to see the effect.
Players are allowed to create burrows now, which they can use as a shop or however they wish. Creative ideas: An arena/Colosseum for hosting fights, storage unit, a museum of all the hard to craft items you've created.
You can give your burrow a name which will be visible on the map. Anyone can enter your burrow unless it is in a locked state.
Once in your burrow with it locked (so you're by yourself), you can edit the internal map of the burrow. Adding walls, doors, and floor to it to give it your own personal touch.
Magic / Spells
I'm slowly adding in magic. Currently I've done some black magic spells, which are for casting hexes on other players or causing them pain. So Black magic is essentially a combat aid. Along with black magic, I've currently got a few purple spells in the works. The first purple spell so far is Swiftstep, which speeds up your characters move speed.
With the rapid development of Forest RP, I'm currently interested in getting two pre-alpha testers. Being a pre-alpha tester will give you the opportunity to shape how the game is made.
If you are interested in being one of those lucky pre-alpha testers, please watch the game and add me on skype: dgafcody
Along with being a pre-alpha tester, I will also award a permanent subscription to the game after it's Beta release.
