Update 21st January 2018

Post by Valiance » Sun Jan 21, 2018 10:29 am

Hi all :)

Glad to see you all survived another winter on Mystic Highlands.

Ok so we have a nice little update for you, myself, Kaylie and Eloshan have been hard at work to bring this one out...

So first of all we now have a way to set timed quests on our new NPC Retainers, which means we can make quests only able to be taken once every set amount of time. this gives us a huge new playground to work with. Now we are able to implement many things which we have always dreamed of being able to do. This one took a lot of getting right, but we are there :)

We have now managed to find a way to modify our meditation skill gains, so you will notice an increase in the amount you gain from meditation. We will still be monitoring this closely for now.

We have implemented a Taxidermy mod to the server, so have fun with this one :)
You can now create a Taxidermy Kit with crafting.
Creating Taxidermy Kits and actually using them to preserve a corpse uses Fine Carpentry skill. The stronger the creature, the higher the Fine Carpentry skill you will need.
When you are preserving a corpse you can choose from 3 options:-
Lying Model - which is the normal corpse.
Butchered Model - which is the butchered corpse, remember some will only be bone piles if that is their normal butchered corpse look.
Animated Model - which is the creature standing and doing its idle animation. This option is costly as it uses Magic, and therefore costs 3000 Karma.

There is a new NPC in Safehold by the name of Raya Beaumont, people should go have a chat to her, she has something interesting to say.

That's it for this update folks, we do hope you enjoy it. We have a lot more on the cards, so please stay tuned :)

Have a great Spring on Mystic Highlands !

Hi all.

After seeing and also listening to Freedom chat after we implemented yesterdays update for Taxidermy we came to a decision.

We do not want our server to become like some other servers we wont name, with trashy looks and huge garish looking things everywhere, plus it would cause overheads which we do not want, so we came up with a solution.

We have made all animated preserved corpses as minitures, in fact 25% of normal size. This allows them to be displayed easily together, you can even place them on top of things !

If you have already created some preserved corpses and you do not like them as minitures, please PM Valiance or Kaylie in game, give them your preserved corpse to be destroyed and they will refund your karma and a Taxidermy Kit.

Lying and Butchered positions will remain the same size as first implemented.

Hope you all understand.

We actually feel this is a much better way to go.
