Maintenance

November 15, 2017 (tlopo-rc-1.7.3)

Bugfixes

  • Potentially fixed several crashes with sailing (unfortunately, this does not include another shot at the infinite loading screen - we're still working on that!)

November 11, 2017 (tlopo-rc-1.7.2)

Features

  • We've heard your feedback! Many more female clothing items now have color options available in stores and in loot. And yes, this includes brights!

Bugfixes

November 7, 2017 (tlopo-rc-v1.7.1)

PSA

  • In a previous update, numerous players reported having their pirates deleted and inventories wiped. We have identified all players affected and have restored your inventories. If you discover that your inventory was wiped and/or your pirate was deleted and it still hasn't been corrected, please contact us and we'll get you all squared away.

Bugfixes

  • A limit of 16 quests is not enough space. For all you multi-questers out there, you can now hold 64 quests! We think you're going to enjoy this update a lot.
  • After many hours and several absolutely delicious pumpkin spice lattes, we have potentially fixed the infinite loading screen issue.
  • Journals were having a problem holding onto quests, so we gave them some extra grippers to prevent quests from randomly dropping. You should be able to complete quests now without risk of losing them from your journal.
  • We were sailing along on the High Seas enjoying the wonderful view and destroying bounty hunters when all of a sudden we crashed. Turns out that was caused by ship wakes. We've made sure that they won't make so many bumps on the water that they crash you.

Maintenance

  • Code cleanup.

October

October 31, 2017 (tlopo-rc-v1.7.0)

September 5, 2017 (tlopo-rc-1.5.3)

PSA

  • In regards to v1.5.2's update patching the PvP Glitch: The exploit was patched due to it causing a significant problem throughout the game where players would be killed randomly, as well as leading to large-scale killings on several largely populated areas of the game, which was disrupting our players' game experience. In order to do the glitch, exploiters would've been willingly doing the glitch with the intent to disrupt other players' experience, which is a direct violation of our Terms of Service. Which led to us patching the exploit. We hope you understand our reasoning for patching the exploit and our moderation decisions with those who had participated and disrupted other players' experiences.
