Release Notes for d20MUD v1.5

- Class system has been redone to be more in line with how d20 systems work, such as D&D and Pathfinder. Each class has certain abilities and feats unlocked as one progresses through that class. Each level gained in a class will automatically bestow one or more feats. In addition to that, characters receive one feat that can be chosen among any feats the character currently qualifies for.
- Empty clip ability is now a one shot type of ability, like overcharge shot. Also fixed a bug that did not properly apply the damage from heavy blaster rifles.
- Fixed a bug that prioritized the upgradedroid command over the hydrospanner upgrade command, making it impossible to upgrade ships with schematics found.
- New missions system replacing old bounty system. Allows the taking of missions that will award credits, experience, reputation and faction standing. Faction standing redeemable for certain items and benefits.
- Shop keepers now have a larger cap on what they'll pay for starship circuitry. Currently other items sold are still capped at 7500 with haggling enabled.
-Levelling process streamlined and improved:
--You no longer see feats or trains pages if you do not have feats/trains that level
--Feats obtained that level are displayed in the feat selection and level summary pages whether the feat is manually chosen, or awarded based on class or race and level
--Fixed some logic errors in the levelup menu process
--Feat list does not show feats available for selection, if already receiving the feat that level from class or race (or chosen manually)
--Feat list shows feats you will obtain in the currently levelled class's levelling progression, in Cyan and marked with a (C)
-Removed dexterity cap from armor altogether.

-Staff can now change a player's artisan type with the 'set artisantype' command
-Qualifying to fly a ship is now based on pilot level instead of pilot skill ranks

-Force Users can now be selected at level one again and do not require force unlocking anymore

What Our Players Are Saying:

"D20MUD: Star Wars is one of the most feature-heavy MUDs out there. Very true to her d20 roots! The game also reminds me a lot of my favorite MMORPG: Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic. Am and always will be a fan!"
-- Zusuk 

"This is, bar none, the best Star Wars themed MUD in existence. They really captured the essence of the d20 System with this one. 5 out of 5 stars."

More Player Testimonials

"D20mud is the best mud I've played in my 20 years of fingering a keyboard. It has everything any mudder could want and then some. From pvp to rich and interesting areas, mobs, class structure, to staff who are the most patient, fair, and helpful I've ever seen and player involvement in the direction the mud takes...I love it, and will always be as involved in it as life lets me be."
