Welcome to Closed Beta! For those you that played in Alpha, we have created templates of all claims you had when the worlds came down on Monday. You can see these templates in your template window with a name that matches your claim name. Currently, it will be nearly impossible to paste one of these templates in a new claim because you cannot see the actual edges of the template if they were air. We’ve got a fix coming for this and we’ll have it to you this week. Once that’s in, you’ll be able to overlap the edges of a claim with a template and when you place it, it’ll only paste the parts that are inside the claim. Until then, have fun gathering resources, finding the spot for your new claims and create all of the workstations, harvesting tools, and building tools that you’ll need to do incredible things! Added: Also, one more important change that Trailblazers and Explorers should be aware of. Claim flags are now crafted and no longer auto granted when you create your character! You can craft your root claim flag at any of the workshops, including the Basic Workshop at the Hub of any island. New Features Claim Ratings The first phase of Claim Ratings is now in game! Once a player has tagged their claim, you can visit them and give them a thumbs up. As more people upvote their claim, their Temperature Gauge will change from an icy blue to a fiery red. (Votes expire after seven days.) As this is just the first phase of Claim Ratings, we have lots more to look forward soon, including, but not limited to: Searching via ratings / tags / visitor count / recommendation count Filtering via ratings / tags / visitor count / recommendation count on the Map Sending Feedback / Tips to the owner of the Claim Claim Upkeep / Foreclosure Claims now require an upkeep cost. You must deposit resources in your Upkeep Bank to pre-pay for upkeep. To fill (or refill) your Upkeep Bank, press “U” to open the Claim Management window, and click the “Upkeep Management” button. Upkeep is due every 24 hours, but can be pre-paid for up to 5 days of real time. (tweet comment) If your claim expires, it is automatically deleted. However, we'll template up your claim(s) for you, and email you all of the resources and props that were present in the claim when it was foreclosed on. FOR NOW, the upkeep cost is 300 copper ore per claim - this will change in the future to use in-game currency. Character Create We've added new options to character create! Choose from a variety of faces, hairstyles, and facial hair for both male and female characters. New Islands We've generated a bunch of new islands for you explore and stake your claim on. Previously almost all (48 of the 50) of the islands were either Tropical / Desert or Tundra / Old Growth Forest. No longer! We now have all available combinations available! Want a lush tropical jungle that blends in to an old forest? Maybe you'd like the cold mountainous tundra, that smoothes in to the rolling sand of a desert? You can choose! Since we've also added new islands... how about a new Tier? Tier 4 is now available! You can now find Mithril and Diamond in Tier 4 continents. Founder's Pack Chest We've added a chest to the Spire that will automatically re-grant any Founder's pack items that you might have missed or accidentally deleted. New Outfits There are two new outfits that each come in 7 different color combinations that can be crafted at the Outfitter’s Table.
