Deathwish Change Log

v1.0 Official Release | Sept 2018

  • NEW Sigil of Deflection -- a bouncy shield sigil that deflects approaching physical objects and avatars away. Dispels after a certain time period or if the target/caster leave it's 15m radius.

  • NEW Zombie spell -- This summons a Zombie that has artificial intelligence, allowing it to roam the sim and avoid obstacles. Currently, it serves as "target dummy", meaning it has a health meter that allows you to kill them with various spells and physical objects. Zombies will respawn back at the caster if they wander more than 45m, so try not to spam them. :)

  • NEW Color Change command for the glow-fx around the Necrobane. This is currently implimented in a very crude way, as it uses its own channel. Will be updated eventually. For now, use it by typing /7 dwcolor (ie. /7 dwcolor green).

  • NEW Now included with the system is a global dispel gesture. Default shortcuts are '/dispel' and CTRL+D but you can modify it to your liking.

  • Other Changes

    • Updated server connections and input/output data.
    • Removed unnecessary errors or debug alerts.
    • Updated documentation.
    • Added /8 changes command to open the browser to this page.
    • Added /8 help command to open the browser to the user guide.
    • Integrated CasperUpdate in addition to the newly improved Arcanum update system.
    • Check for updates by clicking-and-holding the Necrobane for >5 seconds
    • Several other things I cannot remember at the moment. TBD. Need sleep....
