    Sophia, the Goddess - Containment Bay P1T6

    [​IMG]

    The walls surrounding the area are breakable, and it’s quite a height to fall from... But even if you fall, you can be raised!

    For Sephirot, it was like playing jump rope what with the hand sliding across the battlefield, but for Sophia it's more of a mind training game. The mechanics may feel easier than The Final Steps of Faith Extreme for some.

    PvP - Duels

    [​IMG]

    You can see straight away on the map, the dueling area is a large new addition. There’s a clear line before entering the dueling area. Cross the line, and dueling is possible.

    After targeting, you can request a duel in the sub command menu, Then you confirm in the next window that pops up. It shows item levels and jobs on this menu. Then we have a countdown after both players agree.

    When knocked out, it’s easy to get back up. There’s no IL sync for this either. If we get a lot of requests, we can consider adding an IL sync later, please give us your feedback.

    PvP - Spectator Mode

    [​IMG]

    There's a special UI for spectator mode. You can see both teams, including their adrenaline gauges and cast bars etc. You can also switch between 8 fixed cameras with the press of a button.

    The spectator mode that will debut in 3.4 is mainly for operational use.

    You’ll need three parties to utilize the spectator mode and it has to be a custom match. Group A and B fight, group C watches. The party leader of one of the fighting parties will need to invite the spectator party.

    Can be great for training in PvP, but also for people who would like to stream PvP.
    Also for custom matching, you can keep practicing with the same party via a retry button at the end of the match, if you want to stay with the same party members of course.

    Apartments

    [​IMG]

    An apartment block will be added to each ward and subdivision.

    The current plan is to include 90 apartments available in each complex, but this number can be raised as needed for each ward, so don’t worry about room availability.

    An apartment room can be purchased for 500,000 gil.

    Everyone’s chocobo will be stored in the one stable stationed outside the apartment. You’re able to tend to another person’s chocobo as well. There is also a shared space in the lobby of each building that you can congregate in.

    Aquariums
    While we understand players would like to place multiple aquariums in their house, it requires a lot of resources to use transparent shaders. It would probably be possible to place up to three; however, we didn’t have much people to test this with, so for now please let us go with one aquarium for now. During testing, because of the shaders used, when you move the aquarium, the water stayed in place while the furnishing moved, and followed afterwards, looking quite weird.

    The aquarium has it’s own unique user interface, you choose from either seawater or freshwater.
    This will also determine what kind of fish you can place inside of it. There is also a limit to how many fish can be placed in the aquarium and this will depend on the size of the aquarium, and the size of the fish.

    Don’t worry, big fish won’t eat the smaller fish, so you won’t encounter a situation where the M size fish ate the S size fish and turned into an L.

    Adventure Squadrons

    [​IMG]

    Recruits will join up with you by completing various objectives from the challenge log, and you’ll start figuring out which type of characters appear as you start to finish objectives.

    Once you’ve recruited four NPCs, you’ll be able to form your squadron.

    In the future, we'd like make updates that will allow you to take your squadron with you to dungeons.

    Wondrous Tails

    [​IMG]

    The content on the left page is content that Khloe wants you to do for the week.
    On the upper right are the seals you can obtain by completing objectives outlined in the journal on the left page. On the bottom right you can see the the rewards.You will receive a base reward for obtaining nine seals, and additional rewards for completing rows with the seals you obtain.

    You don’t need to go through the left-side content one by one focusing on it, you can naturally get through some of them by doing your roulettes each day, and then before the end of the week you can tackle the content that is remaining.

    Second Chance: Retry
    Retry, for example, would let you sacrifice one of the content objectives that you cleared in exchange for a clear on an EX trial you didn’t want to do.

    Second Chance: Shuffle
    If you feel the contents on Wondrous Tails is something you don’t think you can complete, you can use this feature to try and shuffle the board to test your luck. If lucky, it may line up the board where you would only need to complete one more to complete a line.
