Client 1.6 : Hobbies & Crafting
We are very excited to release version 1.6 of the NuVera Online client. There are many updates and fixes, but the most notable new change is the introduction of our new Hobbies and Crafting system.
We've had previous articles about the coming hobbies system and we're excited to say it's finally here! While there is still a lot more we plan to add the first introduced hobby is Scavenging. This involves finding raw materials such as logs, stone and ore and using those items to craft furniture for your home.
For items found on the ground, such as stone and logs, you simply need to explore, find and click on these harvest-able items. For items found in the ground, like copper ore, you'll need to purchase and use the Scav-Scanner.
The Scav-Scanner is a fun new technology that extracts raw materials from the ground. To learn more about the Scav-Scanner and about finding raw materials see this Knowledge Base Article.
Once you've collected some raw materials you can start in on crafting. In order to craft you'll need to find the appropriate work station which are publicly accessible in Sunset Isle and Tutorial Island. Clicking on a work station will open up the crafting interface where you can see the list of recipes available. As you collect raw materials and craft new items you'll earn experience which in turn will increase your Scavenger level making new recipes available to you.
The scavenger hobby has a current maximum level of 10, but we're certainly not stopping there. In future updates we'll be increasing the level cap and adding new raw materials and great new items to craft.
Scavenger is also only the first hobby we've added. We have plans to also add in a fishing hobby and a gardening hobby which will also have their own crafting counter parts.
There are a lot of tweaks, fixes and other updates in this release which make it one of the biggest releases to date. We're very excited about all the new changes and updates and look forward to your feedback.
