Post news RSS EA-BLOG #7: Steel gear and dozens of fixes

This time we've focused on steel equipment and further development of survival features. New high level armors, workshops and building elements should be yet another step to prolong and improve the gameplay. In the meantime more than 30 fixes have been implemented as well as the first 10 languages and the whole script support to make them nice and easy to update.

Hi guys!
it’s high time to sum up the last days of development before changelogs reach more than 40 fixes and improvements:) Here are the highlights:
OoR EA7 1 IND


Some of you may already know this one but it hasn’t been officially announced yet. The new armor is currently the most durable one on the archipelago, but also the heaviest. Works best in situations when resistance to damage is more important than speed of withdrawn. As shown below - comes in several levels:


OoR EA7 2 IND

Since many players were not satisfied with the durability of bronze doors, we’ve sped up the development of another tier of constructions. In this patch you get Stone jamb and Steel door to feel a bit safer out there.
OoR EA7 3 IND

We’ve also decided to let you catch a glimpse of mechanics so raiding and defending is easy to understand. Doors don’t have health points, they have a 'chance to destroy' and it looks like this:

Average amount of hits needed to destroy wooden/bronze/steel doors based on chance percentage:

  • Chipped Stone 200/1400/3000
  • Stone Axe 33/233/500
  • Bone Axe 25/175/375
  • Bronze Axe 20/140/300
  • Steel Axe 14/100/214

More building elements including a new type of resource and completely new way to mine it should be ready in the upcoming updates!
OoR EA7 4 IND
The new workshop will be needed to craft certain gear made of bronze and steel. It’s a step forward to more realistic gameplay, makes the list of objects in „Player workshop” shorter, looks good next to furnaces and anvils and makes players do some more effort to get the best gear - simply the perfect piece of furniture:)
OoR EA7 5 IND

Stone furnace got an upgrade. A small part of its receipts is now moved to the new one. It will be also required to get that new resource that we’ve already mentioned but haven’t announcement yet.


OoR EA7 6 IND
