Test Patch: Deployment 8

Posted Wed, May 07, 2008 by Taea

A new full blown patch has come to the Test Server for Richard Garriott's Tabula Rasa. NCsoft has changed the patch terminology from the old 1.x.x format, to the more military-like Deployment naming system. Female avatars have gained more curves with the revamp of the Bio and Mech armors, construction on the Arena has been completed and players have a chance to earn Prestige. It seems the Target Lock mechanic has been improved as well.

...we have put in a Target Reacquisition system. The targeting system will remember the last hostile and friendly target you've tab locked onto. Then when you switch to a direct targeted weapon or ability it will automatically reacquire the appropriate remembered hostile or friendly target.

Years have passed since the cancellation of Tabula Rasa, but some fans still want the game back.
