Limitations

Role playing game set in a medieval fantasy world

Softonic Editorial Team

Recent changes

  • Characters turn transparent while sneaking to simulate the fact they are hidden. We are testing this new option, and we plan to use it also for spells or other situations
  • Added "pterosaur services" for travelling between cities. There is one beastmaster in each major town which rents pterosaurs for travel
  • Made shields functional. They are now part of the combat calculation, and allow real blocking of hits
  • Improved the way NPCs chase an opponent by using generated paths (navmeshes) for navigation. This is a major improvement to combat and allows them to walk around obstacles
  • Weather has been known to be cause of crashes on certain hardware, mainly intel chips and to slow down gameplay. It's now possible to disable weather effects from pslaunch! Be sure to enable it and test if it works for you before giving up on it!
  • Added improved snow effect. Snow now shows on ground! Start humming a Christmas song :)
  • Added the new Klyros city Amdeneir! It's actually one quarter of the city, which is located to the "left" of hydlaa, for now reacheable only by pterosaur travel
  • Added animations for attacking with bows on all characters
  • Added a new progress bar for crafting


  • Fixes and updates:

  • Changed item dropping and allowed arbitary rotations in all directions. This will allow better customization of guildhouses and events! To rotate, you have to hold the right mouse button and drag the mouse, or do the same by pressing shift
  • Removed the gossip channel from the Main tab in the chat window. The Main tab is supposed to be In Character and the gossip channel was polluting too much the text. Be sure to clear your old settings, or the gossip will stay there
  • Fixed rain
  • The view window of an armor now shows its stats
  • The view window of containers now shows the weight
  • Ability to disable active magic window notification
  • Removed need to specify a resource for dig/harvest/fish
  • There is a new auto-refusal option for marriage proposals in options
  • Failing to cast a spell may have a negative effect now
  • Support for automatic execution of commands upon logging in
  • Configurable tab completion. You can now speficy a set of additional words to be used in the autocompletion in the chat window
  • Improved the way the server handles randomized and creative items (saving memory)
  • Alliance channel may be added to main now as well
  • Sort item categories by name in merchant/storage windows
  • Added few new idle animations to stonebreaker female and ynnwn female

Notes

The developer requests that users use the torrent download links provided to save bandwidth.

PlaneShift is a free 3d mmorpg made by volunteers with Open Source code!

The objective of PlaneShift is to create a virtual fantasy world in which a player can start as a peasant in search of fame and become a hero. First of all PlaneShift is a Role Playing Game. Be sure to read the Roleplay guidelines or you will not be able to play this game. Focus your efforts in the reproduction of a real world with politics, economy, and many non-player-characters controlled by the server that will bring to life a complete world even without any players connected!

Connect to your virtual world at every hour of day or night to find the players and npcs wandering its realms. You will be able to disconnect and reconnect again without any worries, as the server saves the actual status of your character including his possessions.
You will use a client program to interact with your world, enabling you to have a 3D view of the surroundings.

Here are 10 reasons why you should become a player and a fan of PlaneShift:

  • Planeshift is a great place to find new friends from all over the world!
  • PlaneShift is a virtual world where you always dreamed of living
  • PlaneShift is the first 3D MMORPG to be free for players
  • Made by roleplayers to bring you all the immersion you need from a virtual world
  • A unique setting, realistic combat rules, great magic system with hundreds of spells
  • No budgetary constraints will stop development of the world
  • You can build your house, your castle, your realm
  • Live as an adventurer or as a normal citizen, both paths rewarded in game
  • Submit comments, ideas, bugs

"Game Master Abuses New Players And Free is not Open Source"

The game is OK for free.... what can I say you get what you pay for, right! Oh, right they call it open source, but it is a joke if you want to call it that, so don't. It's free, so live with the many bugs and game masters like Sarva who favor the long time players and ignores the new players questions and request for help. They have like over 511,000 registered players on the Planeshift forum, but there are no more than 50 or 60 players online at anyone one time. I hardly say this is a MMORPG and I have been told they actually don't want any more players. This is crazy! In my experience of 25 years of gaming... don't waste your time... many good MMORPGs out there, but this is not one of them.

Pros
  • Free... NOT Open Source (Please)
Cons
  • Crashes, bugs, players who are rude and unfriendly most of the time.
