Report RSS Changelog Draft for Underlord 1.1

Posted by on

What follows is the first draft of the changelog for all changes and additions between Occult BETA 4 and Underlord 1.1. This is incomplete, but I thought I'd put it up for those dedicated players who actually read the changelog. Please note that Underlord is built on top of the latest patch version 1.17a. Yerky says he may make a 1.1 and a 1.17a version of the installer, so those of you going from 1.1 to Underlord 1.1, please read the 1.17a changelog as well.
