WQ 2.7.1 thread

Post by loboLoco » Tue Feb 23, 2016 1:41 pm

We're finishing up the next patch/update, which should be out within a day or so. It has several new features, so we're calling it 2.7.1.

What's new?
1) Emotes: E to display panel, then E to hide it. https://vimeo.com/155046526

2) Scent trails on pups and mate and other players in MP. (See screenshot)

3) Partial game controller support -- with some caveats:
• most gameplay controls, but you'll still need mouse/keyboard for graphic panel/button inputs.
• Windows only (due to some annoying complications with Mac support, but chime in if you'd want Mac support and we can probably add it later)

4) When laying down to rest, the camera remains in normal position, so you can use camera orbit if you want.

5) In Messages, new "Block" button will block all messages from sender.

6) Mouse control added back for steering your wolf.

7) Playernames are boldfaced in chat text.

8 ) Added facial expression to the Growl action.

9) New per-achievement icons. (We created these for the Steam version, but you all get them first!)

this sounds awesome! i love the addition of controller support-- even if it's partial, it's still great since i'm more inclined to play games with my ps4 controller than my keyboard and mouse. i'm also excited to see the icons :') also the steam release is still making me super eager lol

The patch will be for Macs and Windows both.

EDIT: Oh, sorry -- do you mean game controller support?
