Note: This patch does not contain all of the intended features, which will be added iteratively to the notes as they become available. Additionally, some features may be implemented in a partial state and as such are not ready for testing. When those features reach a playable state they will be detailed on the notes and added to the “Testing Focus”. Please issue council all issues related to those in testing focus and in general gameplay.
This new build has additional work to stow player entities cross shard if it is unable to unstow the player from the previous one. If you could please wait 4-5 minutes if it stays loading for a long time this should be enough time for it to detect and unstow from the other shard.
