I've completed (on schedule I might add!) map development for 3.1.0 and have just released an updated version of AtD to the maps section. In my opinion, this is one of the most important updates that I've worked on in a long time. Vexorian's TimerUtils system has helped tremendously to make the scripts in AtD cleaner and more efficient. This system means exceptionally accurate delays/waits, smoother-looking events and spells, less lag, and also decreases the chance of desyncs. I recoded well over 2000 lines to implement this system and I'm very pleased with the results.

In addition to this major recode, you'll also find a new Death Hunter Quest which required 1,000+ AtD Points. This is the first step towards making these points more valuable to help increase replay value. I didn't go all out with this because I want some feedback on whether or not it's something you guys are interested in. Regardless, I'm sure you will find the quest pretty entertaining!

This patch also contains balancing as well as some important bug fixes that will address problems brought to me over the last few months. As always, if you find new bugs/balance issues then please report them to me. Enjoy the mod and I hope to hear your thoughts on the changes!
