As we announced about a month ago, we decided to discontinue LiteBringer’s development. Today, the final update has been released.
Removal of Subscription and Trading Fees
As of now, LiteBringer is completely free to play, there are no microtransactions or monthly fees required to play. The only ‘cost’ you will encounter is the mining fee which is paid to the miner who mines the block that includes your transaction.
Old sky shards can be converted into a new type of shard at a trader. These new shards can be used both for item and character evolves. They can be obtained with a daily limit per character. The evolve costs have been adjusted, too.
Furthermore, the equipment item UI has been reworked which should ease the evolve process considerably. It now allows several evolves per transaction.
Synchronization Performance Improvement
We also substantially reworked the syncing mechanism which improves syncing speed for version 16 and 17 a lot and allows faster syncing in the future without the preloaded blockchain service. Moreover, we added a preloaded game state. It will be downloaded once and is then used as starting point for synchronization. In case of a resync only the blockchain part after this point needs to be loaded again.
Zoomable Map and Character Deletion
The map is now zoomable and you can delete characters via the context menu
