It's Christmas, and we are very honored to send you our best gift... a new PlaneShift release!! We just released PlaneShift 0.5.5 which contains a lot of nice features. This milestone brings us very close to 0.6, our next major release.

Here is a list of the changes:
New features:

  • Characters turn transparent while sneaking to simulate the fact they are hidden. We are testing this new option, and we plan to use it also for spells or other situations
  • Added "pterosaur services" for travelling between cities. There is one beastmaster in each major town which rents pterosaurs for travel
  • Made shields functional. They are now part of the combat calculation, and allow real blocking of hits
  • Improved the way NPCs chase an opponent by using generated paths (navmeshes) for navigation. This is a major improvement to combat and allows them to walk around obstacles
  • Weather has been known to be cause of crashes on certain hardware, mainly intel chips and to slow down gameplay. It's now possible to disable weather effects from pslaunch! Be sure to enable it and test if it works for you before giving up on it!
  • Added improved snow effect. Snow now shows on ground! Start humming a Christmas song :)
  • Added the new Klyros city Amdeneir! It's actually one quarter of the city, which is located to the "left" of hydlaa, for now reacheable only by pterosaur travel
  • Added animations for attacking with bows on all characters
  • Added a new progress bar for crafting

Fixes and updates:


  • Changed item dropping and allowed arbitary rotations in all directions. This will allow better customization of guildhouses and events! To rotate, you have to hold the right mouse button and drag the mouse, or do the same by pressing shift
  • Removed the gossip channel from the Main tab in the chat window. The Main tab is supposed to be In Character and the gossip channel was polluting too much the text. Be sure to clear your old settings, or the gossip will stay there
  • Fixed rain
  • The view window of an armor now shows its stats
  • The view window of containers now shows the weight
  • Ability to disable active magic window notification
  • Removed need to specify a resource for dig/harvest/fish
  • There is a new auto-refusal option for marriage proposals in options
  • Failing to cast a spell may have a negative effect now
  • Support for automatic execution of commands upon logging in
  • Configurable tab completion. You can now speficy a set of additional words to be used in the autocompletion in the chat window
  • Improved the way the server handles randomized and creative items (saving memory)
  • Alliance channel may be added to main now as well
  • Sort item categories by name in merchant/storage windows
  • Added few new idle animations to stonebreaker female and ynnwn female

We are planning to release more content soon! Enjoy the new release!

Access to the new Klyros city Amdeneir is now open! To reach it you have to speak with Krestal in the main Hydlaa city. Enjoy!
