Patch Notes

Release 68

Welcome to Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues Release 68! “How to Play” instructions and game update notes on Release 68 are available here.

Build Number 1027 – August 15, 2019 9:05 AM

Updates

  • Fixed display names for some tamed wolf pets.
  • Added two butterfly VFX decorations to crown shop.
  • Update for next set of vault items in crown shop.

Build Number 1027 – August 7, 2019 12:45 PM

Updates

  • Added many new mannequin poses to the crown shop, as well as Ornate Viking Crossbow.

Build Number 1026 – August 3, 2019 5:00 PM

Updates

  • Extend player vendor permission list from 10 to 30 max.
  • Fix Tower (Village Home) crown shop screenshot.
  • Fix Empty Land (Row Home) display name.

Build Number 1025 – August 2, 2019 1:15 PM

Updates

  • Added new portraits and paintings to the crown shop.
  • Fixed bugs and confusing UI issues with house selection and default empty land or default row homes on lots.  It should now be easier and more obvious to switch back to the default home on a row lot.   Also updated display name and description for new crown shop item: Empty Land (Row Home) which allows removal of default row homes for empty land instead.
  • Known Issue: Current vault item – Tower (Village Home) has incorrect store name and images.  Previously it showed Wizard Tower, now it is still incorrect and shows Tower (Town Home.)  The actual item purchased, which you can mouse over and click on for 3d preview, is correct.  This will be fixed correctly in another patch.

Build Number 1024 – August 1, 2019 2:20 PM

Updates

  • Fix issue with not being able to remove dungeon pieces in player created dungeons.

Build Number 1023 – July 31, 2019 12:50 PM

Updates

  • Added an option for lots under Manage Lot Access on the lot marker for “Strict Deco Move Permission” which you can use to restrict movement of decorations to be the same as their remove/modify permissions.
  • Added permission list to player vendors context menu so that you can add characters who can list items.
  • Malice: Improved method to activate exit portal after rescuing Sequanna. Switched the Spirit of Regret ghost with a ghostly woman.
  • Optimization pass for Solace Bridge starting scene, Solace Bridge Outskirts, and Novia.
  • Fix issues with trading a new empty container (such as a mannequin.)
  • Fix issues with using wells and fountains in POTs.
  • Crown Shop – Added Empty Row Lot deed. Note that to use this deed in the house selection UI, you need to select “Empty Row Lot” and not “Empty Lot” which should not be in the list – as this just uses the default row house.
  • When dragging an item from a chest on a lot to the lot, the item is considered “placed by” the player who placed the container.
  • West Sanctus Forest: Fixed an issue where some barbarians were misnamed “Trained Wolf.”
  • Solania: Fixed issues with Merriweather’s “buy” response.
  • Blood River Massacre: Fixed an issue where a second Edvard was spawning.
  • Setup for August login rewards.

Build Number 1021 – July 29, 2019 12:00 PM

Updates

  • Fix for missing mannequin context menu when placed as a decoration.
  • Fixed error when placing a cash register player vendor.

Build Number 1020 – July 28, 2019 4:15 PM

Updates

  • Updated dungeon elves to not fight with other critters in the dungeon.
  • Fix an error that could cause you to be unable to create a new character.
  • Fix issue with hotkey slots in combat.
  • Brittany Graveyard: Owen’s mausoleum now has a compass marker discovery location.
  • Sanctus Spine: Moved a problematic ore node to a location where it could be accessed.
  • Added error dialog when setting permissions on an item fails.
  • Desolis: Fixedn an issue where Anya would have sparkly hands but no quest to offer.
  • Ardoris: Improved compass markers when on the quest to speek with Shaaria’s friends.
  • Added a bulk update permissions method for items on a lot. While standing on the desired lot, in the chat window, type /BulkSetItemPermissions {kindred|trustee|owner|private} to set the “Remove or Modify” permission for all items placed by you on this lot to the desired level. For example, /BulkSetItemPermissions trustee. This command should be used sparingly and with caution, be sure you understand what it will do before using it!  It has similar restrictions as Property Manager updates, sending characters on the lot to the front and causing a reload, and a five minute timer on repeat uses.

Build Number 1019 – July 26, 2019 1:00 PM

Updates

  • Added mannequin recipes – sold by carpentry merchants.
  • Fixed issue with salvage incorrectly rewarding metal instead of wood in some cases.
  • Battle of Solace Bridge: Fixed an issue where Charlotte had trouble passing through the gate.
  • Battle of Solace Bridge: Updated the journal entry that informs the player how to rotate their camera.
  • Fix glyph charge counter.
  • Flower Bed A now correctly place-able.
  • Some fixes for various mannequin issues such as clothing and weapon holding.
  • Caverns of Skrekk: Fixed an issue where Krishach wouldn’t walk up the stairs during his escort. Also, added compass markers for that point in the quest.
  • Ardoris: Fixed typos in the responses of Ker the guard and Dheng Zhou the public vendor.
  • Soltown: Emma the barmaid now refers to players by either “m’dear” or their character name.
  • Demig’s Battle Camp: The “barks” made by the guards now properly recognize the current state of the war.
  • Crown Shop – Added potion packs of 6 and 12 potions of various types.

Build Number 1018 – July 25, 2019 4:00 PM

Updates

  • Fixes for R68 Subscriber rewards – to be awarded later today.

Build Number 1017 – July 25, 2019 10:30 AM

Known Issues

  • R68 Subscriber rewards are not being rewarded – these will be added a bit after the first patch.
  • 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.
  • 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 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.
