New Mob Added: Archvile
New Rare Variant: Royal Archvile
New Rare Variant: Phosphorescent Chupacabra
New Chupacabra Model
New Cacodemon Model Added
New Dungeon Added: Aberrant Station

Dungeons now have a 25% chance to spawn large towers above them.
Added new Diamond Pit sectors to all dungeons.
New Creature Filled Soulstones Added: There is now one Soulstone per Creature Type such as the Imp Soulstone.
Undead Soulstones and Elemental Essencestones should both act as regular Soulstones, once tameable creatures are added to these groups, they will spawn in a random pet like the other soulstones instead (though I have different plans for the Elemental Essencestone).
Added New Craftable (Mob Free) Fluids: Rabbitooze, Sharacid and Vesspoison.
Added New Poison and Acid mob spawners.
Mobs now have Variants and Subspecies where Variants replace the color subspecies (Scarlet Pinky) and Subspecies replace the skin subspecies (Moloch Pinky). A mob can have both a subspecies and a variation as well (verdant Moloch Pinky). Variants have different textures and gain stat increases just like before where as Subspecies have different models and textures and different elements altering certain weaknesses and resistances they have as well as any buffs or debuffs they give.
New Command Added: /lm dungeons locate
The Pet Manager should no longer show duplicated pets and should be more reliable as it uses UUIDs to store pet data now.
Fixed a crash caused by some special projectiles.
Fixed a bug where dungeons would stop generating if no available dungeon scematics were found for a particular biome.
Fixed Pixen buffs also being applied on the client causing 'ghost effects'.
Moved Familiar Data Loading into a separate thread to prevent it from causing servers to hang.
Fixed a crash caused by Concapede Heads on Sponge Servers.
Fixed a random crash caused by the creature pathfinder.

Fixed sprite projectiles not showing.
Effect blocks like Scorchfire or Frostwebs have a solid black background instead of an alpha cutout.
Dungeon Generation is fractured, the Dungeons do generate but with missing chunks as other WorldGen cuts through it, this is because they are generating as Features instead of Structures, this is temporary and will be fixed one Structure WorldGen is working.
Updated all jsons to use "biomeTags" in place of "biomes" in order to prevent confusion with "biomeIds". I have made this change backwards compatibile so old json files with "biomes" set will still work but for tidyness I recommend swapping over to "biomeTags" whenever updating a json that has been customised.
Added "bossNearbyRange" optional property to creature json for changing the boss radius from the default 60 blocks (used by Asmodeus due to his larger arena).
Added a config option to control the Boss Health Damage Cap.
Added a config option to control the Pet Follow Distance (server side, will become a per player Beastairy setting later).
Added config option to disable sneak dismounting which is true by default, sponge servers may need this disabled to stop players getting stuck.
Item Drops (Mob Drops) now have the "amountMultiplier" property, true by default, when false, this prevents the drop amount from being multiplied by conditions like subspecies, etc.
Asmodeus' arena now uses the new Aberrantstone and their summoning altar is now the same shape as Rahovart and Amalgalich but using a new Aberrant Soulcube in the middle.
Added a status message to warn players that attack bosses from too far away that the boss is not taking damage.
Mounting a creature will now display an updated status message with both the new dismount and ability keys.
Added a config option to control the generation chance of dungeon towers.
Added blocks to the outside of dungeon sectors to improve their appearance, mostly for towers but good for exposed underground dungeons as well.
Added some extra spawners in empty dungeon sectors such as the pit rooms.
Added a voiceline to the Amalgalich event theme.
Added Mount Descend Key which defaults to Shift.
The native biomes and drops of each creature can now be viewed in the Beastiary at Rank 2 Knowledge.

Mob Events will now adapt the number of mobs spawned around clusters of players in order to keep the events challenging but not over the top in order to maintain gameplay balance and server performance.

The Hells Fury event now also spawns Belphs, Behemoth and Archviles (rare).
Reduced default mob spawn rates from ooze.
Updated the break down recipes of several Equipment Parts so that they all break down into Charge items.
