Known Issues

  • Crashes may occur when running the game in MacOS Mojave. A workaround is to launch the game with -force-glcore (which can be added to the Launch Arguments box in the launcher options).  There are also reports that 10.14.2 fixes this issue.
  • Elysian Illumination no longer damages undead, and has a broken range for applying heals.
  • Party/Companion nameplates can be visually obscured if enough buffs are added for icons to wrap to three rows.
  • Visual quest indicators may be missing from compass. Adding the data to support them is an ongoing design process.
  • Pets cannot follow players onto moving platforms.
  • If an item’s name is in Runic, its flag as “Private Property” will also appear in Runic.
  • Players with Tenant permissions on a Lot cannot place their own Player Vendors.
  • Some decorations placed in basements may shift through walls and end up in inaccessible locations.
  • Players may be unable to interact with objects via double-click if their framerate is poor. A workaround is to use the “E” interaction key.
  • Some spell VFX do not play properly
  • Some textures may look incorrect due to optimizations (white, black, pink, low resolution, pixelated, etc.)
  • Water lots in Dynamic Player Owned Towns cannot be placed on docks.
  • Some pledge, add on, and stretch goal items have not yet been built and/or do not yet have tech support.
  • Some virus programs with outdated libraries may attempt to quarantine essential game files, mistakenly identifying them as threats. This can have significant effects, including the client not starting at all. We recommend keeping antivirus programs updated frequently as they address problems. Workarounds include reinstalling and launching the client with the aggressive antivirus software disabled, or whitelisting the game directory in the antivirus list of exceptions.
