The latest modpack from the Circle of Eight fixes bugs and addresses important gameplay issues.

Posted by Gaear on Dec 27th, 2009

The Circle of Eight is pleased to present the latest version of our modpack for The Temple of Elemental Evil - Circle of Eight Modpack 5.7.0 BETA.

Circle of Eight Modpack 5.7.0 BETA fixes a variety of bugs reported in 5.6.0, such as the masterwork inventory respawn bugs, the shopmap crash bug, and the charging crossbowmen bug. 5.7.0 also adds some new wizard robe and mystic garb designs and colors, as well as a variety of new colors of wizard hats.

Perhaps more importantly, Co8 5.7.0 BETA addresses the gameplay issues of balance and NPC interaction.  The experience point percentage modifier has been reduced so as to slow level progression, as progression had been proceeding at a more rapid rate due to Co8's earlier NPC/monster stats overhaul that brought everything closer to the D&D ruleset.  And many NPCs will now behave more intelligently when it comes to managing their gear.  In very simple terms, they will refuse to turn over starting equipment that has some gameplay significance, such as magical arms and armor, but they will not trifle over meaningless items and they will not horde loot and overburden themselves.  Note that because of this, the Humble NPCs setting (which allows player control of NPC inventories) is now automatically activated, and this setting cannot be altered.

For a full list of changes, please see the included release notes.

We sincerely hope that you enjoy this version of the Circle of Eight modpack.
