(12/08/2001) - A quick look at the soon to be released version
5.06 of Nexus TK!
This Tuesday morning, the 11th, Nexus will be upgrading to version
5.06! We wanted to show you just some of the things that you can expect
from this massive update to Nexus.
The interface has been updated with a whole new look, yet keeping the
same functionality that you are used to. We have also changed the way
the client looks and feels, improving some of the other interfaces as well.
Another great update is the newly improved FaceMaker application. The
new Face Maker application supports much more file types, and is much
easier to use. The new application will automatically save the users
portraits in the correct location, and format to be used instantly. The
new system also uses a better file type which will help reduce your
connection needs for this feature.
Please note that the old portraits
will not work with the next client, but don't worry, the new application
will convert the old format for you!
So what else can you expect from the new client? We don't want to
tell you everything, we want to keep some of the big stuff as a
surprise for you! However, here is a list of some of the smaller
things you will see:
- New creature effects.
- Friends online notification. (Yes, it is back!)
- Improved client stability.
- Lower bandwidth requirements, with options to reduce it further by disabling
some features for people on slow connections.
- And much, much more...
We look forward to this exciting new patch, and hope you enjoy it as
much as we have enjoyed getting it ready for you!
