PlaneShift 0.6 Release !!!

header

Download it here

PlaneShift Team is proud to present another major milestone in the development of PlaneShift! Release 0.6.0 is now live.

Here is a summary of the 0.6 changes!

User interface

  • New Shortcut window. The quick spell bar has been combined with the shortcut bar. The new shortcut bar includes support for:
    • Icons in addition to text
    • Dragging of items from the spell book (the icon on the right) or inventory which will automatically generate use commands
    • Drag and drop of shortcuts to reorganise them (this option is toggled on/off with the lock icon)
    • Character specific shortcuts and key bindings. Now each char has its own set!
  • New active magic window. Whenever you have an active spell (buff or debuff) an icon will show in the active magic. Much more compact and user friendly than the old one. There are some known bugs in the bar, like the display of some icons may be duplicated.
  • Slight improvements to Quest book, guild window, chat window, options window.
  • "Basic chat" window removed to allow for setting of visible chat tabs without restarting the client.
  • Added ability to type in the chat window by just having the cursor over the chat window so you don't have to also click on it. This can be enabled in the advanced config chat window settings.
  • Added a new skin "Minimatuux", feedback is encouraged. You can select the new skin from the launcher.... read more

released tech demo

We finally released a first tech demo. You can walk around and chat on our server at the internet (srv1.gamiix.com). Unfortunately we have some problems in creating linux binaries and found some problems in the client. Expect an update soon, and a bigger announcement on gaming sites then.
This demo is at the same time a call for developers: We're able to produce something cool, come join and help us making planeshift a great project.
