Massive Terrain Expansion Released!

Rate this Entry
Hello Xsyon Citizens!

The massive terrain expansion patch is live!

This patch increases the playable terrain by about 7 times, giving players a whole lot of world to build in and explore.

his patch focuses on a greatly expanded terrain and includes a lot of new and updated features. Here are some the changes in this patch:

1) World Map - A large world map with layers that you can turn on and off display the world in detail, the zone grid and region boundaries.

2) Scavenging - Scavenging had been revised so that items found are grouped by region and danger level of each region. Regions are categorized in the same groups as architecture parts and the Mist Traders (Gadu, Pioneer etc.) With the revised system, it should be easier to find what you are looking for.

3) Mist Traders - Mist Traders will sell a greater variety and number of schemes so that it will be much easier for players to collect the patterns and blueprints they seek.

4) Interface interactions - Options have been revised to include various menu styles, key binds and settings so that players can further customize their game experience to play either in the current older MMO fashion or more like a current sandbox survival game in 'active mode'.

5) Revised regions - With the terrain expansion, current regions have been reshaped and increased in size. This will become more important for the War Server when the War System is released as each conquerable region will be larger in size than the current small regions around the lake.

Some of these feature (such as the map) are a work in progress and will be improved and completed over the upcoming weeks.

For all players: Please start by checking your Options and Keybinds as some defaults have been changed. In the near future I will set up a panel that will allow players to choose from two basic default sets of options when they start the game.

Xsyon will be on sale starting this Monday and I will announce this expansion on Steam along with the sale.

As there are many updates to the code with this patch, I expect that there will be issues found. Please post any issues you encounter in the Developer Zone.
