    I wasn't satisfied with how the mount system worked (controlling a spawned extra unit and making the hero unselectable while mounted), so I recoded the whole system from scratch.

    Result:
    You now actually control the hero instead of the mount, so that buffs/debuffs and any other effects still work on your hero and you can also still do non-combat actions while mounted like picking up items, dropping items, accepting quests, crafting, etc.

    While mounted, attacking and spellcasting is disabled, though (except for the special mount skill(s)).

    SO does that mean that the mount system is finished, and we're just waiting on a couple of skills at this point to test out the mount system and new ability system?

    Yes, but as I said, this is probably going to take a while, some of the new skills are pretty complicated to make in order for them to feel polished.

    Maybe give us a hint about these new spells? Hype is usually affected by such revelations^^

    Is it possible to have a giant chicken as a mount? This could improve the immersion of gaias.

    This time, I wanted to try out not spoiling too much before the release.

    ... uh... this is awkward...

    But seriously why can't the chicken be a mount?

    Like have us do a quest where we have to go find stuff to help this guy feed his chickens, he gives us a list, and one thing was scribbled down and misread by us and makes one of the chickens huge and he has to give the chicken to us because its too dangerous to keep. :D

    No, but if I make the chicken available as a mount, I am pretty sure that everyone would use it and that would look super dumb. :/

    That's a fair point, would any of the "Ancients" work, like Ancient of War and such

    I don't think those would be suitable mounts.

    At this point, I just roll with what I have so far, which is a pretty nice selection.
    If one of the 1.27 patches increases the map size limit, I always have the option to import more mount models from the outside.

    Where are u going to get mounts? Vendor, quests or drops? Or a mix of all?

    Loving the chicken, but I suppose chicks can be a bit too distracting when you're trying to save the world from a plague :wink:

    The final fantasy crews had no issues saving the world while mounted upon oversized chickens.

    But I could imagine a clickbait marketing slogan:

    "Ride all the cocks you can imagine."
