New version of NuVera Online brings some graphic updates to Tutorial Island, new starter tutorials, friends list update, new streaming radio song title and artist info and a whole lot more.

Posted by Danto on Feb 3rd, 2012

Version 1.1 of the client introduces some new features, fixes and has a big update to Tutorial Island.


Client Overview


Tutorial Island
We've spent some time and re-wrote all of the tutorials on Tutorial Island. Some sections have quite a bit more tutorials than before to both offer more information and shorten the amount of running between info totems.

We've also updated the look of the Info Totems as well as the Tutorial Info Windows which now include a reference picture.

Streaming Radio
We've changed up the Radio Volume tab that is available when there is streaming radio in the area. The tab itself is now just called radio and now also shows the currently playing song title and artist information. The volume control is still in there as well.

Other Interface Updates
We've changed how the home button in the main menu works now. Instead of showing the destinations screen the Home button will now simply prompt if you would like to teleport home and clicking OK will load your last loaded personal space.

The friends list now has a new button at the top called Add Friend. You can click this and send friend requests to other users by name without the other person being in the same area or even online. The Invite Friend button has been re-labeled to Teleport friend to be a bit more clear on what it does.

The My Avatar menu item when right clicking your avatar has been removed and replaced with the What Am I Wearing option.
