Thank you for your support!

Hello there Dear Backers!

Version 1.1 is here with fixes and translation support! From now on you will be able to play the game with unofficial community made translation mods.

Please note that these translations are not official translations. They are community made translation mods.

There is a Steam Discussion about the available community translations. We will update that Discussion with new translations as they become available. http://steamcommunity.com/app/424250/discussions/0/364040166672294575/

At the moment we received a link to the French translation:
-https://mon-partage.fr/f/XMgjdwFk/

We know about a Russian translation but we haven't received a link to the files. If you create a new translation please send us a link to it so we can add it to the available translations list. (our email: balcony.softworks@gmail.com)

How to install translation mods:
Extract the downloaded translation files. Copy all files into the appropriate files/dialogs/* folder. If you did everything correctly the folder you just copied files in should look similar to the files/dialogs/en folder.

Launch the game and you should be able to select the new language at the Main Menu. (lower right corner)

Fixes:
-Honey and Milk won't allow you to exceed the maximum amount of hunger.
-When creating Ancient Linen armours the selectable icons are now fixed!

For translators:
The “after_release.xml” file has changed.

A huge thank you for our great community for their hard work!
Thank you very much guys!

Have a nice day!

Yours,
Balcony Team

Hello there Dear Backers!

We are back with a small update.

Language mods support is almost ready! Pretty much everything is working. We are waiting for the translation mod teams to finish so we can add a GUI option for language selection.

Fixes:
-A more appropriate floating text will tell you about the requirements to use special books which grant you a skill.
-Sometimes wrong LP and Thaler costs were displayed in the Talking Panel.

Features:
-Added support for additional languages font kerning. (translators should notice a difference in font kerning)

To translators. These files changed:
gui/after_release.xml
gui/floating_texts.xml

Thank you for your support everyone!
Have a nice day!

Yours,

Hello there Dear Backers!

Update 1.09 is here! The new patch contains a few things suggested by our community! Thank you for your feedback!

There are features recommended by you that are still under development so if your suggestion was not added there is a chance it will be added later! :) Of course suggestions that don't fit the game won't be added.

Suggested by the community:
-Inventory Sorting. Right clicking a category tab in your Inventory now sorts the items in the clicked tab.
-Double click to harvest grown plants.
-Repair Statue. When reaching skill level 2 with either armour or weapon crafting you will be able to build a Repair Statue at your safeplace.
-Capture Wisps. You are able to capture wisps with taming traps. A captured wisp will be in your inventory and you are able to release it anywhere you like.
-Double clicking on items in the vendor panel now selects the whole stack.
-When equipping new gear the swapped old item will end up in the newly equipped item's slot in your inventory instead of an empty inventory slot.
-If you place down floor tiles that are already there no materials will be used.

Fixes:
-When the double mana usage debuff was active on the player the mana bar could display negative mana values.
-The dungeon minimap now properly shows the player and pet tooltip.
-Blind(melee) now requires a weapon.
-A few typos.

For translators. These files have changed:
gui/floating_texts.xml
gui/npcnames.xml
gui/after_release.xml
gui/gui_texts.xml
gui/objects.xml
grandpa/whathappend.xml

Have a nice day everyone!

Yours,
