So lets go to UI improovements...

UI Changes

According to the feedback of friends and (and sadly only one customer, he's awesome!), they told me they dont know who gives you a quest and who not. I've added a Scroll icon over every NPC, at this point only for Storyquests, what take us the the next step, the Quests.

I'm coloring a Quest in 4 different types, it will be:

Yellow: for Story

Blue: for Start and Eventquests

Red: For Dungeons/Raids/Boss/Epic

Orange: Debug/Test/Alphatesting

every Quest will become a String with "[Story] Kill xyz!" and objectives/targets will be colored too (Mobs will be marked red and Items will be marked green)

Here are some screens:

Here are the Quests:

NPC IconQuest


Story


I've adding more Weapons soon, where you can choose of Items depending of your current class.

Minimap:

I have added a Minimap on PC version;

(i dont really think you need a minimap on mobile, I am glad if I can ever put a new button on a mobilescreen, there simply not enought space for that. :D)


When you press "M" key the minimap gets big into a Worldmap, you can zoom in and out with the buttons. (with + and - keyboard keys too!) Ive adding mob points and portal icons later.

Here are two screens what it looks like:

Minimap

World Map

Ingame changes:

I've started to adding a house interrior for the city, in this you will be chatting or meet people, a bank and guild managing coming later in the future. (The interrior will remind you from another game.., i used it bcause i very liked that)

Screens:

Interrior

Interrior2

NPC is bugging a little, but he works! :D

My friends told me i should definitely add a fly mount, so i did:

Item: "Reins of the Flying Drake" {Item ID: 37}, he's currently not added on any npc merchant, should i reboot the alpha quest and add him as reward? tell me your thoughts. :)

Fly

Fly2

>Watershader is glitching with another texture, water will be replaced later.

>Later i will adding more collision walls, in order to not flight out of collision area, so you wont be able to explore the hole empty continent. :D

Quit Dialog:

You can now exit the game without ALT+F4! Is that awesome!

Press "Settings" on the bottom right corner.

Dialog

Later i will add more stuff like change audio/quality/resolution.

Bugfix


Connection bug:

The bug was caused by an incorrect entry in the database. We need to update the client to take effect, you'll get it soon.

Character Selection Bug:

This bug is caused by a empty weapon (in other words, no object as a weapon), this affect every equipment like armor or weapons.

Yes, WoW is my inspiration. My goal is that to make it like classic, no copy, just recreate it. What i want is, to have the same difficulty as same as wow classic times.
