How likely is a 4rd update?
Should i wait or just play the game after update 3?

Update 4 is the update you should wait for if you're interested in seeing the "complete UA experience" and what we have to offer with NPCs. Update 3 is for people who would like to give the game a shot that's less buggy, has huge performance improvements, and so they can finally finish off the game before potentially giving it another go for Update 4.

We're working on Update 4, which aims to include more NPCs and other features. Update 3 will primarily be focused on bug fixing.

I enjoyed the NPC quest to return a painting (of her son?) in Ultima Underworld, and NPCs making dragonskin boots for us, giving recipe for rotworm stew, etc.. I hope we will have NPCs like that in this game too, without dialogue trees since that doesn't sound feasible.

Any ETA for Update 3 ?

Somewhere Flarechess wrote "before the end of month" and "but after GDC week"

Ah ok. Update 4 is too far away and i want to play the game now. :) I really hope that the performance is much better after update 3 as my i5 6500 + GTX 1070 is struggling with this game. I guess there are too many physical objects in the game world.

I would love to have some extended graphic settings not just some crappy unity presets. :(

Or to paraphrase it differently: "Almost half a year since it's release the game might offer the "complete UA experience", so thanks for sticking with us".

Wow. Cool. Looking forward for that. I think in the actual state the game already is very good. But its great to hear that you are still into developing it further :)

Is update 3 still planned for this week? Only 2 business days left.
Flare Apr 4, 2019 @ 7:15am 
Yes, still aiming for this Friday. Heavy QA these past couple of days, to the point where even I'm pulled in. Sorry for the radio silence! If Update 3 still isn't ready for show time by Friday, I'll let you know that day of what our next plans are. Obviously can't push it too far back, since that would interfere with our time to work on Update 4.
