Lots of working people are going for vacation shortly while some already started their vacation.
We in RetroCores Staff want to wish you a happy summer and that you do things that make you happy and recharge your batteries before the fall!
The past year with Covid and all have been frustrating for us all and it's likely to continue for a while, which is why we'd like to tell you to be careful and consider your plans for the summer and the impact it might have on you and others.
Many will have their vacations at home this summer, but some will travel and if you will too, just be careful.
As for the staff, we're randomly around, we're trying to have some time off and relax to recharge our batteries for the chaotic fall that will go down for us, but other than that the staff is available little here and there.
Me as admin I'm checking status of RetroCores multiple times per day, and do emergency fixes/updates if necessary and randomly does maintenance work with RetroCores (mostly backstage stuffs).
Unlike last summer, I'm not moving this summer and additionally, this time I actually have internet so I can poke around when the weather is disappointing.
Which brings me to content updates,
Summer is a low tide, everyone is shifty and not as active for obvious reasons... the summer.
And content updates enter a state of pause during this period.
This doesn't fully mean no new things can come over summer-period, but rather that the pace of it is a lot slower compared to fall/winter/spring.
As you've seen, we've had a shitload of updates in RetroCores since winter, and more will come.. but slower during summer.
So, use the summer properly, enjoy yourself and relax, recharge those batteries.
Because come fall, you'll need them!
Today we're happy to present you with a few new hunting areas!
Wyrms and Dragon Lords
Both are located somewhere in south jungle of Port Hope
We'd also like to take a moment for everyone who's enjoying RetroCores!
It's thanks to you that the game is stable and long-lasting, and we'll do everything in our power to preserve the retro-aspect while trying to give you a flash of new things to explore!
We hope this will be glad news for necro-hunters!
We're happy to present you with update 1.24 which brings quite a few and nice things!
To begin with, we've added Mistrock in RetroCores style!
And we've also added Okolnir in RetroCores style!
New Tasks available for following creatures:
- Frost Dragons
- Cyclops Drones
- Cyclops Smiths
- Hellfire Fighters and Massive Fire Elementals
- Lost Souls
- Betrayed Wraiths
- Dark Torturers
- Diabolic Imps
- Undead Dragons
Additional to this update, a few new interesting items are available to be discovered and what they can do or be used for.
Along with that a few more items have been added to Rashid.
We have also updated the downloadable Minimap to version 1.24!
(With exception a few mystery areas that was left out)
We hope you're enjoying RetroCores and that you'll look forward to explore the new update!
ps: this client update is only available in Windows client until next full client-update.
You have two options where the loot statistics should get looted items from:
1: Only Looted Items
(Only items you move into your inventory from newly killed creatures will be added to loot stats)
2: All Killed Creature Items
(All items from your killed creature or party kills will be added to loot stats, without you having to open the corpse)
Adding all items to loot can be useful under many different situations such as:
- Party hunting, knowing exactly what the party have looted since you began the hunt.
- Loot Bagging, when you often aren't adding items to your inventory but throw them on the ground or similar.
- Curious, when you're more interested in what items monsters dropped than your own profit status.
Additional to this update, we've had many background updates improving everything.
such as improving the systems behind !reportbot that now will higher the chance for catching PVP-Botters
We hope you're enjoying RetroCores and that you plan on sticking around for a very long time!
