Ever, Jane - Open Beta Release Notes, Update 5 – August 23, 2017
Good day to our dear friends of Ever, Jane!
It was a long delay since our last update and we are through those storms, excited for what we can share with you today. After this update is settled we’ll be sending a separate message about near-future plans. More details to come, but there’s much yet we want to add to bring the game experience and Jane Austen’s work together in a way you will want to engage with every day.
The previous game client will no longer be able to login. Your existing account will login normally to the new version of the game. Get the newest version of the game client from our website: http://everjane.com/download
Please keep a backup of your previous game client folder. Currently, any in-game letters you have sent or received are stored locally on your computer: ejLetters.yap. Copy this file and ejMag.yap between your game clients to preserve your letters and place in the Magazine. Your Journal of acquaintances is stored in our database and will be preserved with your character between updates.
Please see this article in the Knowledge Base regarding transferring your in-game letters and Magazine bookmark between game updates:
For any questions or assistance with the update please contact us at email@example.com
Chat-type Toggle Buttons
Instead of typing /shout or other chat types before your message use the buttons directly below the chat window to continue chatting in that type. Click the Shout button (which will then highlight) to have your chat automatically shouted, Whisper for whispering, etc.
Revised Main UI Buttons
We have replaced the main game UI buttons to be more clear and consistent. The button location and functionality has not changed; We have not yet replaced the button text or added mouse-over tooltips.
Card Game Table (first implementation)
Strategy games can help build a strong mind and as such Mrs. Hatch has placed a new gaming table in her entry room. Four players may play together free-form card games, such as Whist. (Rules and instructions are not currently implemented in game. Be sure to read more details in the Knowledge Base article.) The “North” position, nearest the cards on the table, is the dealer who selects the game and winner for each hand. This is the first implementation of this feature helping us find problems and get initial feedback.
Estate: Servant Area Improvements
A well-run estate requires the assistance of many dedicated servants. Explore the lowest floor of the Estate to see the kitchen and other important rooms needed to support the Lord and his family.
New Furniture Type: Accessory (first implementation)
With this update, we’re adding a special type of furniture that can only be placed on other furniture, like a tea cup on a table. When you move the parent furniture (in this example, the table) the tea cup and other accessories will move with the parent. This feature should allow you to decorate bookcases, tables, or other furniture surfaces. As this is a new feature there may be problems we did not find in our testing. Please tell us if you see any issues while placing or moving Accessories.
Marketplace Additions: Clothing and Furnishings
Today’s update also comes with many additions to the Marketplace!
Fashion: For the ladies we have two types of Spencer jackets in various colors to mix with Slender, Medium, or Full skirts. A new Maid’s Outfit is practical yet graceful. Our gentlemen will look especially rugged in four colors of a new Greatcoat.
Furnishings: As requested, we have added many choices to the Marketplace, including expanded color options for some pieces. And to support the new Accessories feature you’ll find a new selection of items named “Accessory: “ in the Marketplace Furnishings list.
Running low on PSR?
If you would like to refresh your wardrobe or furnishings but have already spent your initial PSR stipend we have an offer for you: send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your account name and the one most important thing you would add or change about the game so far. In thanks for your thoughtful feedback we will credit your account with 300 PSR to spend as you see fit in the Marketplace. (We will respond to let you know when your account has been credited.)
If you decide to generously purchase PSR and do not see your account credited within 5 minutes please log out and re-login to the website, then contact us if the problem remains.
New Website in Development
We have been working on our website, including improved functionality for forums, account management, Marketplace, and more. We’re working hard to ensure our current forums will be migrated to our new site. More details coming when we’re ready to test the new site!
As always, please email us at email@example.com or post in our forums if ever you have a question or concern.
With warm regards,
The Ever, Jane Development Team
