Additionally the enemy attacks will now random roll if the enemy attack pool max is set above 1. Lastly the damage random rolls as well (Min to maximum attack range for every damage type)!

Seems odd that the ocean map as shown in this update has no horizon emulation (e.g. terrain and objects don't 'curve' out of view). Right now, it just looks like everything past the horizon disappears in a very unnatural way. (Or, in technical terms, it's obvious anything off the water map's top border is not being drawn anymore.)

Just from observing games which do have horizon emulation, such as Mickey Mania (see Youtube.com and Youtube.com ), I have a few suggestions:

* Put the ocean map on a custom bit of geometry which bends at the end. With proper UV mapping and some padding of the actual ocean map to account for the very edges of it, the horizon emulation would happen naturally.
* Use a shader to progressively 'roll' the map as it gets closer and closer to the top (obviously starting at a point near the visible edge of the map).

Hope this helps!

Yes we hear ya there, and we have plans to improve the scrolling effect when in the overworld. Problem is this is not easy to implement unless we uproot the entire overworld map, not sure we have time for that, so another approach is needed. We are looking into how to solve this issue asap.
