Devblog #9 Crafting, Models & Badges

Welcome to this weeks update, I know you have been waiting for Crafting all week, it is finally here for you to enjoy!

Crafting


The much requested skill is now here, some of you watched me live code it into the server, so here is a breakdown of what you will be able to do:

  • Spin wool into thread
  • Cut gems
  • Craft leather armor from tanned cowhides by paying Ellis in Al Kharid
  • Smelt jewellery with moulds: gold / sapphire / emerald / diamond, rings / necklaces / bracelets / amulets.



Badges


You can now earn badges, from being a founder/patron, being a subscriber to my twitch or donating bits, to being a youtuber or streamer! Pick up to two badges to display before your name in chat, show off your support for the server!

Doing '/badges' in game will bring up a list of badges.



Models


We have had a new model made, with more on the way! Some of you already received it and have been enjoying having it as your pet! With so much of the world left to make we are excited for the models to come.



New Builder!


Talking about the world left to make, everyone please extend a warm welcome and raise your hand o/ for our newest builder to the team Coblekay! She has already started building for us on the dev server, we can't wait to show off the builds she is working on <3

We have more builders to feature and are still looking for more, so if you feel up to the task please fill out the form in #rules-and-info



New Characters


Creating new characters is now possible, currently limited to members whilst we test, they will be available in the store soon!

Members can do the command '/characters' to create and view their characters.
