PATCH NOTES 1st March 2021



Known Issues

Client Crashes
We are aware of a handful of issues impacting client stability and we're working hard to address as soon as possible.

Today's Game Update includes a potential fix for the recently reported black screen / loading screen issues. Please do let us know if you were experiencing this and if it has been resolved now.

Over the coming week the team are working on releasing further hotfixes to address client stability, with a focus on addressing the most commonly experienced crashes first. Thank you for your patience - we'll provide more information as soon as we can.

Graphical Settings Menu
This update includes a UI bug where by changing the advanced graphical settings of any feature can inadvertently change the settings of the feature before it in the list (ie. changing the settings for Lighting Detail will actually change the settings of the Water Detail). We’re working to resolve this with a fix as soon as we can.

Higher tier lecterns in the Player Owned House's study now increase the speed at which spell tablets are created.
