8 ) It doesn't seem very clear how many ingots of material are required to create an item. This is complicated by the fact that ingots of different sizes will stack together.

Yeah, that is quite unclear in game.

When you craft any item, you need the item's volume in crafting material. Eg. a long sword has a total volume of 175 cm3, so you will need 175 cm3 of whatever material you are using to craft it. Ingots can vary in size, and different materials have different density, so you can't really tell by the weight of ingots. But I think you can go to options and turn on showing item volume.

I think leprosy is tracked per limb, so if you destroy the limb and only eat the flesh lumps, the leprosy will be "lost". Are the flesh lumps rotten/spoiled, or fresh?

Pickled zombie.

On that note, rolling pins. Equipped on Attnamese housewives so they can back up their talk. Also other such implements, like kitchen knives and pitchforks. Low level blunt, sword and polearms respectively. More variety in beginner items.

Have you recently checked what are the housewives carrying?

Press F to open a crafting menu, then you can use F1 to get help for the individual options.

You will to dismantle some items for raw materials, and then you can use these to create other items. Finding a forge and anvil for metalcrafting, or workbench for other types of materials helps.

Did we pinpoint the source of the imp bug in the end?

It's likely because their CreateCorpse() method is missing a SendToHell() call, so the mob keeps hanging somewhere in memory.

Sorry about thar, browni. Imps seem to be doing that quite a lot, now. :/

1) From the chat, what if some monsters COULD pray?

IDK about praying per se, but I wanted to add some form of "spellcasting" to priests that would be based on their god's prayer effects.

2) Mass applies to the weapon damage calculation. Does the mass of your gauntlets apply to your unarmed melee damage? 'cause it should.

Damage of all items is based on their material strength and mass. AFAIK the damage of your gauntlets is added to your unarmed damage, so the mass of your gauntlets already matters.

4) This one is out on a limb, it's a bit wild and game-altering. The suggestion is giving weapon skills unique effects, which become more effective with higher skill. They would be present at any level including 0, but unlikely to proc until you gain a couple levels in the associated skill. My initial idea was for kicks: granting a chance to kick any time you make another attack. The chance would be doubled for unarmed attacks and halved for bite attacks, and would increase with skill level. Other ideas I had were giving blunt weapons a knockback effect (like kicks), giving small blades a critical strike effect, and giving unarmed strikes a chance to attack again.

That would be pretty cool, like weapon abilities in POWDER or CoQ.

This past week the internet wouldn't give me a straight story for generating seamless periodic 4D fractal simplex noise in C++, but from what I can piece together from the few credible sources out there, I can say we are well on the way to being able to switch between continents and Pangea, and different world sizes.
I have a noise generator working in IVAN now (FastNoise library), which instigates the shape of the landmasses on the world map, in a way that can be controlled by a couple of parameters.
I'll put up some screenshots when I next get a chance.

That sounds great!

Here are binaries for Windows and Mac:

We don't have a binary for Linux, but you could use the Windows binary through Wine.
