Landmark’s holiday patch introduces the Winter Holiday Party Zone

    
38

Landmark’s been eerily quiet since Halloween, but good news, everyone: The game’s just gotten a new holiday-themed update.

Senior Producer Terry Michaels told forumgoers that this morning’s patch will add new props to the voxelbox, including ornaments, wreaths, garlands, trees, snowmen, gramophones, and chests. The team has also fixed come client bugs, opened up a “Winter Holiday Party Zone,” and handed out holiday presents:

“Everyone will have a Holiday Outfit Giftbox in their inventory that, when opened, will give you one of the three holiday sweater outfits. The in-game mail slaugs have painstakingly worked to ensure you get a different outfit from last year if you received one. If you’ve already gotten all 3 from generous friends, you will receive a duplicate of whichever one the slaug working on your gift thought matched your personality best.”

You can read the complete patch notes on the official forums.

melissaheather deekay_zero sorry, other games have better less fps dropping water, and in the sea of small voxel games landmark is a grain of sand on the beach.

whatever the sales pitch was, forget it. it’s clearly not going to happen. we’ve had a year to ruminate on this. throw it in the bin with teh rest of the eternal early access steam small voxel games.

you can’t do 1/5 with the voxels you can do in minecraft either. 

and on the last paragraph: as the people asking questions on the forums and getting banned have noted- landmark was supposed to be us the consumers joining in on the ride of development of eqn. so if you’re right at all, which i doubt, let’s just drop the pretenses there.

Elikal Ialborcales They definitely aimed very high.  Landmark was probably necessary to test their theories and systems and see if they could even really pull it off!  But when you lose your visionaries, you might lose your direction and focus too, and stuff like “dynamic (flowing, that can do things) water” we were promised, maybe we won’t see at all, because it was probably too hard to do, and too graphic intensive.

deekay_zero No, let’s be honest and fair.  Landmark is Amazing.  Landmark is Incredible.  Anyone who’s stood by the oceans in that game is seeing the best water physics yet depicted in an MMO.  The quality of building structures, the palettes and tricks, put it so far above Minecraft and most other voxel games in quality of construction that it’s not even worth discussing.  Landmark’s 64bit game engine is a powerhouse.  What Landmark is not, apparently, is going much further in actual features.   The promises of giving us tools to create our own quests, trigger events/storybricks, rewards, and content of that nature may never happen at all in Landmark.   That falls short of promises, and so, it is disappointing.
Most people of course were more interested in, and waiting for, EverQuest Next.   I just can’t fathom how closed-lip they are about this game.  It’s like staring at the iron bars and the locked gate outside of Willy Wonka’s factory in the evening gloom.  Do we dare imagine wonderful surprises are being made by the little men inside?  I wish I may, i wish I might…

PaulFortunato oh, i dunno, even just doing that confirms that it’s real, and that they are actually working on it.  we’re in some baffling black hole of no information.   of one of the hottest MMOs IPs in history, one of the most hotly anticipated MMOs in years… it’s mind-bottling (will farrell voice)  ;) 
I can’t conclude anything but mismanagement from a PR point of view.

NASA is planning to build a 30m telescope on Nawaii, rumour is they will try and see past the event horizon of a black hole.  A NASA source said “We already have telescopes that see so far they are effectively looking into the past, the 30m telescope looking into a black hole will see the future, but not so far as confirming a release date for EQN, that is still beyond our scientific ability”.

But oooo oooo oooo a snowman.

josefreaksalem they patch in new textures and props every so often semi regularly.

don’t get too excited. they’ve been adding stuff like textures and prop sets semi regularly for the past couple years without doing anything much interesting in that time, in between fixing their bi weekly auth server bugs (library wide) they’ve had forever.

there was also the debacle with their forums for eqn the other week where threads asking questions about eqn and the state of landmark were deleted shortly after being posted and getting community receptions, while blatant spam threads were slower to be deleted (and this continues to be the modus operandi of their mod team apparently), though it might come as a surprise to those following the SOE/DBG drama that they still have forums for landmark/eqn at all at this point as it is.

landmark itself is one of a thousand and counting small block voxel games on steam early access that seem to be eternally beta, with the differentiation here being the mmo style hosting and cash shop monetzation, and very little to nothing else (at least that can be considered in favour of landmark vs those other guys).

Daybreak’s H1Z1 is consistently among the top selling steam games, Planetside 2 is the biggest F2P mmofps in the world, and they’ve been collecting “founder pack” money for damn near 2 years with landmark.
Yes, well funded.
