Tamriel Rebuilt is pleased to announce the release of build 21.01.
21.01 is a maintenance release, requiring the use of Tamriel_Data v8 or later.
The primary focus of this release is to increase compatibility with the latest Tamriel_Data release, by means of replacing deprecated assets in our main release file, TR_Mainland.esm. It also allows us the opportunity to offer significant performance improvements made to Old Ebonheart and the Aanthirin region to the public ahead of our next content release. Of course, this release also features the customary bug fixes and no small amount of corrections to floaters and bleeders, as well as the additions of a small number of new equipment pieces and miscellaneous items to existing locations on the mainland.
Finally, some minor content additions have made their way into this maintenance release. Old Ebonheart now features the Ebonheart Bellman, a newspaper that reacts to some of the player's actions. The Bosmora Mages Guild Relay has seen some additional cluttering, and a well-guarded basement has been added to the Fane of the Ancestors in Necrom.
Some more unconventional content has been added to the inns in Akamora, Marog and Ranyon-ruhn: an interactive card game named Hortator, a prototype for more complex games to come...
Please note that our preview content, TR_Preview.esp, has been updated to recognize Tamriel_Data v8.0 as its master file, but only bulk replacements have been done to most deprecated assets and some might still remain. The reason for this is that the content in TR_Preview is currently the subject of massive development efforts; compiling our internal section files into a new, playable TR_Preview would have taken away too much time and effort from our next content release.
In short, if you see a red box marked "this asset is deprecated" in our preview content, do not be alarmed! We are aware of these, and TR_Preview will receive a proper update in our next release.
In other news, progress on our next planned release, "Dominions of Dust," continues. The release will focus on three regions: the Ascadian Bluffs, Roth-Roryn and the Armun Ashlands, with parts of the Velothi Mountains thrown in for good measure. Andothren, a major Hlaalu settlement, Teyn, an Imperial holding, and various minor towns and settlements will be the focus of the release. Two Ashlander tribes and two vampire clans will spice things up for those of an unusual and, dare we say, heretical disposition. While no formal release date has been set, the final interiors of Andothren are now under construction, NPCing of the city has picked up pace, and many quests are currently in active development.
