  • Mountains around lighthouse are no longer decreased quality on Mobile
  • Fixed some issues with collisions on the map
  • PSA: New updates may be smaller than usual. We have entered active development of ASV2, which will take up the majority of development time.
    • To talk a little bit more about why we are devoting time to ASV2: the current state of the game leaves a lot to be desired from real and active gameplay. A lot of time is spent being “AFK” while passively leveling up Etherians to reach high levels or prestige. We want to work towards a more active form of gameplay, where the reward for actively playing the game is greater than the reward for staying AFK to level up.
    • ASV2 will be the first major step to this goal. Once ASV2 has been added, we will have the ability to create enemy NPCs that can be fought as well as a Boss Battle system.
    • Because ASV2 is a ground-up rewrite of the entire Attack System, it will require a lot more time in development before we can release it. That’s why there will still be new weekly updates, but they will (probably) be smaller than normal.
  • When selecting mutations in the Traits menu, their models now appear. Then, you can go to the Skins menu and swap skins to see what they look like on mutations!
  • You can now drag Etherians on the choosing screen to rotate them (only on PC and Mobile, no Console support yet)
  • Explorer improvements in choosing screen: accessories are now applied, R15/RThro scaling is applied, and idle animation now plays (changes depending on your avatar’s Idle animation)
  • Added terms “level [number]” and “prestige [number]” to choosing menu search bar (i.e. “level 50” will show all Etherians at level 50, and “prestige 0” will show all Etherians at prestige 0)
  • You can now use characters “!” and “/” in the choosing menu search bar to negate search terms (i.e. “!level 100” will show all Etherians that aren’t level 100)
  • Updated command script for efficiency, and to fix an issue where roles with the same command would activate the command multiple times when used
  • The !sit command now moves your character downwards (if possible), which should help prevent you from falling over
  • The Ashen Church at Phoenix Gaze Village is now considered a Safe Zone (originally intended to be one)
  • Moved interact prompt for EXP Orb to center of orb, and decreased the radius that it shows up in
  • Updated CollisionFidelity and RenderFidelity for objects around the map to help boost performance
  • Remodeled the mountains around the lighthouse area to fix issues causing lag and improve the overall area aesthetic
  • Fixed an issue where prestiging an Etherian on the choosing menu would cause it to break the search bar
  • Fixed an issue where “Dig Spots” could no longer be interacted with after the interaction system overhaul
  • Fixed an issue where using the Axe on trees that are on fire would give Wood without actually cutting the tree down
  • Fixed an issue where cutting down trees with beehives would cause the beehives to float in the air
  • Beehives now disappear when the tree they are attached to gets burned down
  • Cleaned up animations on choosing screen so there is less of a “jump” in the animation when switching between Etherians/skins
  • PSA: LNY and Valentine’s skins coming soon!
  • PSA 2: The mountains around the lighthouse area on Mobile devices are temporarily decreased in quality until Roblox fixes a critical bug with meshes
  • New Etherians: Vacrunch, Bascurus
  • New Ability: Event Horizon [Hitting an opponent with a physical attack causes them to be Grounded and have halved jump height for 15 seconds. While Grounded, Wind-type Etherians can be hit by Ground-type attacks!]
  • Interact System revamp
    • Roblox recently released a new version of interactions called ProximityPrompts
    • We have updated the game to use ProximityPrompts instead of the old, custom interaction system
    • This gives us access to several new features (i.e. hold for 0.5 seconds to open a Barrel) and should hopefully be more efficient than the old Interaction system!
    • There’s a high possibility that some Interactions don’t work properly anymore. Please use the Feedback feature to let us know if you find any issues!
  • New Items: Axe, Wood
  • Bag Upgrade: Added “WorldSelection”
    • WorldSelection allows the user to specifically select Items that can interact with the world
    • For example, the player can Select the “Empty Vial” in their Bag. This starts the WorldSelection sequence
    • Then, the player can either click on the Terrain Water or Lava to bottle it up, creating a Vial of Water or a Vial of Magma, respectively!
    • If you’re on Console, you can use the Right Trigger to select items in the world, and the B button to end WorldSelection
  • Interaction System v2 (Beta)
    • The portals in the game lobby, where you can join either a RP or a PVP server, now use the new ProximityPromptService by Roblox
    • This system will replace the current interaction system in the game in an upcoming update
    • It is expected to be a lot more efficient, give us more functionality, and cause less lag overall!
  • Added item images for Sleigh Bells, Walnut (Shell), Walnut, Snowball, Ornament, Peppermint Tome, Mistlefoe, and Walnut Shield
    • Special thanks to Likey2003 for getting these finished!
  • Bag now defaults to ID sort, which means that items will be sorted from Oldest-added to Newest-added. This means that new items should be at the very end of the bag by default now!
    • You can click the “ABC” button in the bag to return to Alphabetical sorting, which was the old default. This change was made because it can be hard to find newer items that haven’t been given item images yet
  • Added a “Can Select” filter to bag
    • When enabled, any items that have the ability to use WorldSelection will appear: for now, this is just the Axe and Empty Vials
  • Renamed “Shelled Walnut” to “Walnut (Shell)”, because shelled walnuts are actually walnuts with their shells removed
  • Removed “Twisted Tree” crafting station
    • With the addition of Wood as an item, the Enchanted Lumber recipe has been modified accordingly
    • Now, Enchanted Lumber requires a piece of Wood and can be crafted from anywhere around the map!
    • This change was primarily because we realized the “Twisted Tree” crafting station didn’t make much sense, and was especially difficult for newer players to figure out
  • Fixed issues where several spawnpads clipped into walls (which potentially spawns players/items out-of-bounds)
  • Fixed an issue where the healthbar would appear full after mutating, even if the player did not have full health
  • Fixed an issue where the mouse would be stuck in the middle of the Death Screen if you died while fully zoomed-in
  • Fixed an issue where the sprites in the Crafting interface used the full item images instead of the actual sprites, which caused issues with memory consumption
  • Fixed an issue where the full item image in the Bag didn’t use a placeholder image if the actual item image didn’t exist yet
  • Other various bug fixes
  • Winter Holiday event has ended. We hope you enjoyed it!
  • 2019 Jolly Skins have entered the normal skin shop rotation, and the 33% sale has ended
  • Snowballs, Wisp of Life Essences, and Soul Fragments are all now given even if you die when collecting them
  • Updated Rainbow skin code
    • The transition between colors should appear a lot smoother than before
    • The Rainbow effect is now active on the ChoosingMenu when previewing skins
    • The new system was written pretty quickly, so it may have issues. Let us know if you find any problems!
  • Fixed an issue where 2 sets of buttons would appear for each Etherian on the choosing menu
  • Fixed an issue where SkinnedMesh models would keep their texture while mutating (causing them to not be completely black/white)
  • Temporary fix for an issue with SkinnedMesh models and the “Rainbow” skin
    • We can’t completely fix Rainbow skins because it’s an issue with Roblox itself, they know about the bug and are in the process of fixing it
    • For now, the Rainbow skin just swaps between color skins once a second without smoothly transitioning between the colors
    • Whenever the color changes, you’ll notice the entire model flicker for a second: this is the reason we disabled the Rainbow skin
  • PS: Presents will return in the future (to collect ornaments and shelled walnuts) once we fully fix the issue with presents causing lag
❄️ 1/2/2021
  • Added (early) version of fullscreen map
    • You can open the map by opening the minimap and clicking the magnifying glass icon
    • The map currently allows you to drag it around and (only on PC currently) zoom in
    • There is currently a waypoint set to the Town, and in an upcoming update you will be able to set your own waypoints
    • Waypoints will also appear on the minimap in an upcoming update
    • Mobile compatibility is about 50% complete, and console compatibility is questionable (but being worked on)
  • Added new crafting recipes to Peppermint Tome:
    • Frosted Snowglobe (boosts defensive stats by 30% while it’s snowing)
    • Laurel Crown (cannot be frozen, grass-types take less damage from ice-type attacks)
  • Walnut Shield now nullifies the effect of the ability Endothermic when equipped
  • Item images for all new items added in the event will be added in an upcoming update
  • Another possible fix for the “present lag” issue, please use the Feedback feature to let us know if you still experience lag when opening presents
