V1.0.3.0

[Major New Features]

  • The casting mechanic for all skills has been updated to be much more responsive. Casting a skill will now make the character cast it immediately in the targeted direction rather than forcing the character to run up to the skill's casting distance. If you prefer the classic casting mechanic, you can toggle it back in the game options.
  • Grim Dawn controller implementation has been completely overhauled with a redesigned control scheme as well as new controller exclusive UI. Controller skill usage as well as movement has been made to be more responsive. Steam Controller users will find a new recommended controller configuration.
  • Non-Steam Controller users will want to reset their keybindings in game to get the new recommended keybindings.

[Crucible]

  • Ashes of Malmouth Monster Infrequents and Rare Materials can now drop in the Crucible.

[Mod Tools]

  • Note to modders: to make the Asset Manager compatible with expansion files, please make sure your Additional directories are set as follows. You may want to check to make sure your Tools.ini file matches these parameters:
  • Additional browse directories=C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Grim Dawn\gdx1\
  • Additional source directories=C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Grim Dawn\mods\gdx1\

[Art]

  • Male and Female models have been visited by a tailor, with major tweaks to numerous armor models and textures:

  • Several textures tweaks on leg armor for improved color balance and tighter texture sharpness.

[Itemization]
