thebesplayers | 0.3.3 Patch Notes: Catacombs Levels 1 and 2

Clusters:

  • WARNING: Clusters are currently unstable. We may switch Azure Sky back and forth between a cluster and a standalone map as we work to improve the stability over the next couple weeks.
  • To see if Azure Sky is configured as a cluster, look at the list of maps on the Server Details at login. If it only shows,
  • This should not affect your pre-alpha house or character data. If you experience any problems due to clusters please contact us on IRC or via email (contact@citadelstudios.net)

Features:

  • Catacombs Level 1 and 2
