The apocalyptic fantasy sandbox, Xsyon, keeps rolling out updates!
Earlier this month, we continued to enhance the architecture system with more new parts. The updated featured a new beam system that increases the flexibility of the truss support system and allows for longer spans.
Today a big Trade update was patched out!
This patch features the first of many upcoming building functions, the Trading Post. Players designated Trading Posts to trade with ‘tribes beyond the mist’ to obtain valuable patterns, schemes and blueprints for crafting and building.
This update sets the stage for many upcoming building uses including infirmaries, welcome stations, taverns, craft workshops and toll gates. Along with the current commissaries, trade totems and quest totems, these building types will help players create active town centers to bring together players old and new.
Last month, the apocalyptic fantasy sandbox MMORPG, Xsyon vastly improved its architecture system, allowing players to layout and build towering multiple story structures with ease.
This month, Xsyon continues this trend by expanding the architecture system with nearly 100 new building components and further improvements to the system. Parts include decks, railings, gates and various size floors and walls often requested by players.
Newly added beams add flexibility to the system, allowing players to place supports within trusses or span them. Part placement and movement is easier than before and players can now place tents, huts and teepees within structures at any level.
We’ve already witnessed many new and exciting player built creations since last month’s architecture patch. With more components, increased ease and greater flexibility we expect to see more amazing structures in Xsyon!
The apocalyptic fantasy sandbox MMORPG, Xsyon has always highlighted its architecture system and creative player made structures.
This year’s first major update to the game brings this system to a whole new level, accommodating new players and greatly facilitating multistory construction!
The patch features:
- Manipulation of architectural parts in air and from a distance.
- Added commands to move parts vertically and flip them in place.
- Adjustable placement distance and movement increments.
- Increased flexibility allowing components to sink into the ground and stack with ease.
- Initial placement and slope constraints removed.
