Stealth has been revised:

 

The new stealth system relies on the distance of a scouting character from an NPC to determine how quickly the creature will enter Alert and Combat states. A comparison of characters' individual Stealth skill ratings and creatures' levels modifies this rate.  N.b.: A character that does not have LoS on the creature is not considered to be "inside" their radius.

 

When characters enter the scouting state, they gain a Stealth Meter.  Currently, it's simply a solid circle completely filled with color (green or, if in colorblind mode, blue).  This is a basic implementation and the art will change. Every NPC in the world has one of five stealth detection ratings (from Oblivious to Supernatural) that correspond to radii in the game.

 

When a scouting character gets into a creature's stealth detection range, their Stealth Meter will start filling from green/blue to yellow.  This informs the player of how much time they have before the creature will enter Alert and Combat states.  If the meter fills completely yellow, the creature will move up to a constant-defined max distance toward the character (e.g. 3m).  At the same time, the yellow meter will begin to fill red.  If the meter reaches full red, the scouting state is dropped, the character is detected, and hostile creatures enter Combat.

 

We will have a base rate at which these fills occur, but they can be modified by two elements: 1) the relationship between the character's Stealth and the target's level 2) the character's proximity to the target within the radius.  The two modifiers both directly multiply the standard rate.

While this system is fully implemented, it has not been tuned and does not have final art.

 

This is so very much appreciated. :)

I am having an issue with the latest patch, it says disk full and is giving me an error through steam. Is anyone else having this issue?

Do you have available hard drive space on your computer?

How is the update overall? I spent only around 30 minutes looking at it. I can't seem to tear myself away from WL2.

I love the update. Stealth is way better, combat feedback is better, spellcasting is better, and at least for me the game is much stabler, though there are still some weirdness and issues.
