Patch Notes 220.127.116.11 - UE5What’s New?
Mortal Online 2 is now running on Unreal Engine 5. This upgrade brings the real-time global illumination system Lumen to the game for improved lighting in the world. Lumen is enabled for everyone. Temporal Super Resolution (TSR) is added as an alternative to NVIDIA DLSS and is supported by all GPUs.
The team has worked hard to optimize the game so that the performance is as similar as possible to Mortal Online 2 in Unreal Engine 4. UE5 is more demanding on the GPU and we have increased the minimum requirements to a GTX 1060 or equivalent. The CPU performance has gotten improvements in multiple areas. We have managed to stabilize the framerate to have less hitches and even increase the total FPS in some cases. Locations with many characters, such as large battles, is still a challenge and will be a topic for future optimization.
The upgrade to Unreal Engine 5 has not been without its challenges. Multiple areas of the game world got completely broken and we had to repair many parts of it. We're immensely grateful to our community for their patience and support throughout this transition. The future of Mortal Online 2 is bright, and together, we're paving the way for many more thrilling adventures and unforgettable moments in this expansive world. Thank you for being on this journey with us.

With this major patch comes a lot of additions, changes and fixes. The change list is very long, so here follows a summary of notable changes. You can read more about some notes in the full change list.
Murderers now have red names.
Added new Task NPCs with cape rewards for fulfilling tasks. Follow the markers on the compass to find them when you enter a city with Task NPCs.
Added Rewards button in the escape menu for claiming supporter items and streamer drops. Rewards cannot be dropped, traded or banked. You can destroy rewards from the inventory and reclaim them at any time.
Added new camps to points of interest.
Added Tindrem Vocal Theme song to Tindrem.
Added new zones: Guarded Areas and Wilderness. Guarded areas are placed in Tindremic and Khurite locations and guard towers will be present along the roads.
Fighting pit added to Meduli.
Updated the login screen scenery to signify version 2.0.
Added the ability to bring a partner when taking a new bounty.
Improved the buildable placement mode.
You can now gain stamina on a successful parry.
Equipment hits are removed for all equipment types except shields.
Increased minimum damage dealt by clicking to attack.
Clear weather is now more common all over Myrland.
Improved AI respawn times by having each AI have an individual timer for its respawn.
Only guild members and owners may now pay upkeep for houses, strongholds and keeps.
Increased the maximum Field of View to 110. The game now enforces the FOV value so that it cannot be modified outside the settings.
Added six sided dice to equipment vendors that allows you to roll a random value by right clicking it.
Added Sator, Outlaw, Outcast and Risar Commander heads as droppable items.
Updated prepatch Blood Kua fish and Blood Kua meat.
Full nudity is disabled due to issues with several payment providers. We are looking into a solution to this problem.
Terms of Service are updated and must be accepted in the login screen to play.
Changes to the Launcher and Game Startup
Both DirectX 11 and DirectX 12 are still supported. DirectX 11 support is likely to be deprecated in the engine in a future engine upgrade.
A splash screen with an EAC progress bar is now shown on startup. The game was previously hidden during this phase.
Changed the game startup sequence. An initial loading sequence is now shown before the intro movie with detailed information if something goes wrong with EOS or EAC. This should reduce troubleshooting times.
Flags and Standing
Players in your assault list (local grey players) are now lootable without turning you into a criminal. This does not apply to duels.
Fixed not seeing icons of alliance members' pets.
Fixed not seeing icons of guilded/enemy/alliance members loot bags.
Fixed a bug where the pets flag did not always update properly.
Fixed a bug where you would get flagged for attempting to take items off a lootbag, even if the item was already taken.
Murderers now have red names
Increased the number of murdercounts required to be considered a murderer from 5 to 10.
Murderers will now have red names. If you have more than 10 murder counts, your name will change from blue to red.
With a red name, other players will be able to attack you without turning criminal themselves, however the guards will not attack you on sight as a murderer. This means you are free to attempt to enter a Guarded Town you have positive Standing with, however the guards will not defend you if the players living in that town decide to attack you.
This means murderers are no longer favored by the flagging system, as you will instantly know if someone is a murderer or not when encountering them outside of a town.
This will allow more people to make better informed decisions about what they should do when encountering other players, while making the gameplay as a murderer feel more like your actions have had a tangible effect on your reputation within the world, along with bringing more action toward you.
Zones and Territory
The world map is now split into two different kinds of zones, Guarded Areas and Wilderness. An overlay has been added to the ingame map to show the new zones.
You will be notified by an ingame message when entering or leaving these zones.
The exact locations of these zone boundaries may change
Wilderness is a new type of area where players can not be reported for murder or lose Nation Standing. Certain areas on Myrland will become Wilderness, such as the Gaul’Kor area, the jungle, and some dungeons which contain bosses.
If you die while inside the Wilderness you will not be able to report your killer for murder, so come prepared, at your own risk, and with the knowledge that you will be in significant danger with no recourse from the NPC Nations.
Changed murder reporting so that you now always lose Standing with the Nation owning the zone you were in when you died. This means if you kill someone outside Tindrem, you can only lose Standing with the Tindremic Provinces for that murder.
Fixed Territories on the Map UI being shown half as big as they actually are.
Fixed an issue that allowed Keep Territories to grow into each other instead of stopping when overlapping.
Added the ability to name a partner when taking a new bounty. If your partner accepts, both players will receive the same bounty contract and can both use Seeker Corakis to locate them.
Added a distance limit when taking a new bounty. A random murderer within 5,000m of you will be selected, if there are none within that range it will expand the search until you find one, up to a distance of 10000m.
Added bounty tiers, which impact your rewards. These tiers unlock as you gain more bounty hunter renown.
Fixed issue with footstep ground traces causing sounds to sometimes not play. This was most noticeable on horses.

Guild tiers now increase the max supply the guild can hold.
Guild related tabs in the Social window no longer appear if you are not in a guild.

Large decorations like wall segments and bookshelves should no longer be hidden when far away from a building. Other decorations will still be distance culled for performance reasons.
Build stages on guard towers have been temporarily removed. Will show as fully built for now.

Fixed a few meshes where the foundation of buildings were floating because the mesh did not match the full foundation depth.
Fixed missing LODs on player houses.
Placement of Buildings
Remade buildable placement mode to make it more robust and fix multiple issues.
Minor nonblocking foliage is now ignored during placement to reduce obstruction issues in places like the jungle. It also helps with placing siege tents and siege machines.
Updated multiple obstruction messages to clarify the reason why a building cannot be placed.
All tiers of a building are now shown at the same time. Future upgrades have a weaker form.
Placement will now show in red if the base tier or a future upgrade is blocked.
You can now adjust a building after a placement has been set using left click drag. Does not work yet when using the mouse cursor.

Weakspot calculation on daggers has been adjusted so that heavier daggers weakspot much less often.
Enabled cast shadows on the player torch in first person view. Torches from other players do not cast shadows yet for performance reasons.
Changed outofworld recovery so that it can't be abused as an elevator to get out of caves. Players will now return to their last known location.
Fixed issue where players could be pushed through walls by mounts and creatures.

Fixed an issue causing melee attacks after a feint to sometimes do incorrect damage.
Fixed an issue where you could not push or shield bash if you had a counter attack ready.
Fixed bug causing you to block until you did another block, if you were blocking while gathering.
Server and Networking
Rebuilt part of the login process for a smoother experience. Logins should now be slightly faster and more reliable with less waiting.
Fixed issue where players would load in on other clients but it would take a few seconds before they started moving because of missing movement updates. This made it look like other players would teleport/rubberband when first loading in. It was very apparent when loading in mounted players riding at full speed.
Multiple updates and fixes to player and AI movement updates to reduce desync issues where characters sometimes end up in outdated positions. This sometimes happened to pets that were following their owner and appeared in a previous location to other players.
Improved package handling on the server side.
Fixed several server memory leaks that were causing instability.
Reduced network overhead on the server side related to player movement updates.
Improved how the server handles player updates. This should lead to the server being able to handle more packages and more players.

Adjusted ranged bandits so they run backwards at a slower, more reasonable speed.
Made outcasts/outlaws slightly weaker and slower.
Reduced the aggro range for wolves from 50 m to 20 m.
Spawners now keep track of individual respawn timers. This means that two AI killed at the same time will also respawn at the same time, improving the rate that a spawner is refilled.
Closed doors in player buildings now block AI pathing again. AI was temporarily allowed to leave through closed doors due to a bug a few patches back where pets would randomly run into other player houses and get stuck there.
Removed the loud spawn sounds for Game Masters when they chose to appear.
Improved the issue where character parts are not completely synchronized in the animation.
Updated physics on all capes and hairstyles due to the physics engine upgrade to Chaos.
Fixed issue where Game Masters would not appear in the etherworld but still be targetable. Game Masters will now appear in both the living world and the etherworld when they choose to show themselves without being targetable.

Updated 'Territory' UI window to show more information and look better.
Added tooltips to the territory tab.
Added a timeout to the loading screen that forces a level streaming flush if the player is stuck for more than 60 seconds while streaming levels. This should fix some players getting stuck on 9899% loading progress.

Fixed a bug where title progression only updated once in real time.
Fixed broken grass gathering in a few places in the world.

Updated NVIDIA DLSS plugin for Unreal Engine 5.3 to 3.5.2b (nvngx_dlss.dll version 18.104.22.168).
Replaced the DLSS setting with a shared Upscale setting. DLSS is in this list when the GPU supports it.
Removed the Resolution Scale slider. Values are now controlled by the Upscale setting. We might restore the slider once some specific values no longer crash the engine.
Added Temporal Super Resolution (TSR) to Upscale setting. It is supported by all GPUs. FSR might be added in the future.
UI Scale slider range increased from (50%, 110%) to (25%, 200%).
Increased the minimum distance for enabling character shadows by 10 m for all quality levels. This ensures that characters cast shadows even on the lowest quality setting.
Tweaked all video setting levels for improved client performance.
Adjusted config settings to exclude small objects in the distance from shadow passes. Lower shadow settings increase objects being removed.
Removed the character distance optimizations setting. It is now always on.

Adjusted scalability settings to reduce overall VRAM usage.
All cities have received a dedicated art optimization pass to improve performance for UE5.
Updated all player/humanoid component LODs with lower detail and joint count to improve CPU performance (body, hair, beard, armor parts, etc).
Added a new render priority system where characters will be changed to a low detail state when far away. This version of characters is much cheaper. This mainly affects players and humanoids like zombies and guards. We will extend it to creatures in a future update.
The game will now target a max number of high detail characters using the priority system to maintain CPU performance.
Replaced parts of the engine level streaming behavior to eliminate loading stalls due to registration of collision shapes. Large areas of trees and foliage should no longer produce large loading stalls as the collision shapes are now streamed over multiple frames.
Improved buildable placement so that large structures like a stronghold no longer drops FPS to rock bottom.
Improved CPU performance by reducing the number of active components on humanoids.
Improved CPU performance by making some parts of the character static when far away.
Reduced the number of active bones in character skeletons for improved animation performance.

Optimized several world art assets.
Optimized multiple cities.
Improved multiple level streaming lines that caused game freezes.
Reduced landscape grass tick rate.
Fixed issue where spell effects could flush async loading and cause a game stall.
Fixed issue where an AI changing growth level would flush async loading and cause a game stall.
Fixed a level streaming issue where large volumes in sublevels caused a large loading stall, for example Morin Khur had a half second loading stall.
Fixed issue with particle systems in Tindrem Garden causing poor performance.
Fixed issue where the game would start loading levels from position 0,0,0 during loading screen before switching to the spawn location. This caused the game to load unnecessary assets when entering the world.
Fixed issue where player character render bounds were bigger than necessary.
The Republic of Nordveld zone around Hyllspeia is missing but will be added in a later patch.
Patch Notes 22.214.171.124Greetings Mortals!
Prepare for a monumental shift in the world of Mortal Online 2.
With the introduction of territory control you can now claim land for your guild, expand your influence on the realm, construct settlements and grow in power.
You will not be the only one vying for control of Myrland however, so be prepared to engage in large scale siege warfare as the strongest powers collide and compete for dominion over the land.
The two new groups of Emanation and Arrangement bring 20 new Elementalism spells to the world of Nave, allowing magic users to expand their possibilities and effectiveness with totally new mechanics.
All this and so much more is now available in this patch. Please give the notes below a read and let us know what you think!
We have also put together a helpful "Getting started with Territory Control" manual over on our website which we encourage you to view here: https://www.mortalonline2.com/help-center/gameplay-help/getting-started-with-territory-control-and-sieging-manual/
See you in Nave!
Added Territory Control mechanics with many territory control related structures.
Added Sieging mechanics.
Added two siege engines, the Manganon and Ballista. Both stationary and mobile variants.

Added Campodon armor.
Added two new banner colors.
Added 20 new elementalism spells, in the groups Emanation & Arrangement.
Several client side and server side optimizations. See details below.

Added a guild rank 4 requirement for operating keep gate levers.

You no longer need the map item in the inventory to see the Myrland map when you press M.
You can now zoom the map and move it around.
Loot and Pickables
POI containers such as barrels, chests, urns etc have a bit higher refresh rate for new loot.
Make pickables easier to target and interact with by improving the collision to better match the visual mesh. (pickables are objects like karotons or salt crystals)
The effects of multiple Elementalism Emanation spells no longer stack.
Casting Crawling Hands will now flag you as a criminal.
Lava Flow base damage decreased from 2224 to 2022

Mounts and Pets
Updated the appearance of Campodon bags.
Fixed a bug where your mount would not take fall damage if you died from the fall.
Fixed an issue where a mount that changed between young/adult/alpha while swimming would drop to the floor and stay under water.
Mounts are now forcefully pushed towards the surface while swimming to ensure they stay afloat until we add buoyancy rules. There were a few scenarios where players managed to stay below the surface.
Fixed issue where mounts had a lesser step height than players. This caused mounts to be unable to step over objects that a player on foot would.
Characters, Creatures and Spawners
Rebalanced the Glory reward of many creatures. Hostile animals now award more Glory overall.
Multiple variations on dynamic spawners added or updated across Myrland.
Added an extra leash check to leash AI that is stuck.

Buildable Placement (put notes here and we’ll clean them)
Adjusted the placement rules for buildings. Buildings should now be a bit easier to place.
Adjust the way the minimum range between player owned structures is handled. In certain cases you should now be able to build houses slightly closer to each other.
The placement mode for structures now attempts to automatically raise the object being placed in order to clear any clutter on the ground (Rocks, tall grass, bushes, etc) when the item is activated.
Player owned structures are now easier to place on rough terrain.
Buildings will now display their correct names when placed, instead of being called “building”.
You can no longer place structures in the Necro dungeon tunnels.
Update the message that is displayed when you are trying to place a structure inside of a nobuild zone. It should now make it much more clear that this is why you are unable build in a given area.
Removed large no build zones in front of all keeps.
Adjusted several no build zones in the world to be smaller.
Housing and Buildables
Destroyed houses/keeps will now be lootable for only the owner after being destroyed, after 48 hours anyone can loot the content of the house/keep for 72 hours then the structure is removed.
Fixed being able to view the contents of unrelated chests of other houses when you unlock a chest with a password.
Fixed client side bug where the keep gate would be closed for some players even though it was open.
Various collision fixes and updates to houses, keeps, and strongholds.
Fixed a bug causing you to not be able to loot destroyed buildings.
Fixed issue where players could remain standing in the air if the object they were standing on got removed, for example a house or wall got destroyed.
Update house password system, a quick relog will not force you to retype password to access chests/doors etc.
When the client thinks it has access to a chest (by having an outdated password) you will now be able to retype it again instead of simply being denied access until relog.
Chest UI now closes when password failed or someone changed the password.
Fixed a bug causing ‘access chests’ to sometimes appear empty and not able to be picked up.
Fix issue with keep walls allowing AI to walk through them.
Fixed an issue which resulted in you being unable to place decorations on certain grid cells of a house when the door was open.
Increased item cap for Keeps by +100 for T2 and T3.
Players can now force open the door of a house by damaging it.
House doors have health, and a defence value that scales linearly with the health % of the house it is connected to.
This means only houses that are being sieged can have their doors opened in a reasonable amount of time. Players should be able to feel safe in their homes outside of a siege scenario.
The door will recover its health over a short period of time.
At 100% health, the door has a defence of 100%.

Patch Notes 188.8.131.52Greetings Mortals!
This patch brings with it the second batch of Elementalism spells. Many of the new spells allow you to manipulate the weather of the region that you are in, with some spells even requiring specific weather in order to be cast.
The roster of mountable creatures is also expanding. You are now able to ride wolves, direwolves, terrorbirds, and even domestic pigs! In addition to these new mounts, the new mount passenger system allows you to bring a friend with you while riding horses and molvas.
Speaking of Molvas, they can now be equipped with bespoke armor. Making these awe-inspiring beasts even more imposing than before.
Lastly, several new craftable pet bags have been added to the game. Allowing your furry and feathered companions to assist you in new ways.
And as always, there are a slew of changes and fixes to go along with all of the new additions.
See you in Nave!
Mounts and pets
We have added the ability for certain combat pets to be mountable. This includes their risen variants. Risen pets have rules in which you can only have one “mount” type and one “combat” type or they will vanish.To be clear, the current pets look like this;
Molva - Mount and Combat (Can only have them by themselves)
Other Rideable Combat pets - Combat
We will likely revisit these tags in the future and update you if or when they will change.
Four pets can now be used as a mount. Wolves, direwolves, terrorbirds and domestic pigs (this includes the risen variants).
Added craftable bags for several creatures.
Horses and Molva beasts can now hold an extra passenger.
Mounted Combat, Mounted Archery and Mounted Magic are disabled for mounted passengers.
Players can now offer other players to ride on their mount as a passenger if the mount allows it. Look at the other player and hold Ctrl+R to offer a ride. The passenger can then mount and dismount as long as the rider is on the mount. The passenger can be forced off the mount by using Ctrl+R and will no longer be allowed to ride again. A passenger will always dismount when the rider does (no AI riding).
Mounts now have a rider weight limit before penalties kick in, passenger included! E.g. Some horses can handle 180 kg without penalty at level 1. The weight includes the armor and body weight for the rider and passenger but not their inventory weight. The mount armor and bags are not included in this penalty. A penalty of 0.5% per kg will be applied to the speed and 0.2% to the turn rate beyond the weight limit.
Mounts carry an additional 0-40% extra rider weight between creature level 0-125. A creature with a 100 kg rider weight limit will have a 140 kg weight limit at level 125.
Fixed bug where the riding speed penalties from equipment and bag weights would sometimes not update properly.
Reduced the flee duration for mounts when the rider is knocked off from 3 seconds to 1.5 seconds.
Fixed bad volumes for medium-tier houses causing pets to randomly run into other player houses when running past them (or ignore parts of the house completely).
Fixed issue with broken corner pathing near houses. Pets would sometimes walk too close to walls and end up inside the house.
Fixed issue where pets would sometimes get stuck in the entrance until their owner moved far away enough for them to teleport.
Pets will no longer stop following their owner when blocked by a door. It will now keep trying until the door is opened again or the owner goes outside.
Pets should now navigate between sections in L- or T-shaped houses without taking shortcuts on the outside. Proper doorway navigation will come when we add in-house navigation around decorations.
Fixed bug where pets would not update their appearance when changing level. For example a young pet would not change into an adult appearance unless you stabled it or relogged back into the game.
Temporary change: Pets are now allowed to leave a building even when the entrance is closed. This change remains until we confirm that we have fixed the issues with pets randomly going into closed houses.
Fixed bug causing certain pet skills to not be properly checked if they are a criminal action or not.
You can give bags custom names by ctrl + right-clicking them in your inventory.
Outlaw bandit spawners added to the world.

Lootable sunken boats can be found throughout the Myrland seas.

The bonus chance of finding rare materials has been reduced from 25% to 10%. Clade gifts 'Stoneseer', 'Geologist', and 'Dendrologist' will now notify the player if there is a high chance for rare materials when mining or lumberjacking. In general this change will increase the speed of gathering rare materials.
