    • Sprite XML file is data/enemies_gfx/coward_alt.xml
    • Sprite image file is data/items_gfx/normals_orb_base (note the lack of a file extension; adding .png to the file name will allow you to open/view it).
    • Their enemy file is hidden in data/entities/misc/effect_heart.xml
  • A new Celestial Scale structure is visible in the desert, dilapidated and ancient. Progressing the Uusi Aurinko questline will help you balance and restore the scale.
  • Omega Black Hole was added as a reward for balancing the scale.
  • Additional Achievement Pillars were added, relating to Toveri.
  • Modifications to Tiny (Limatoukka):
    • Added proper ragdoll sprites.
    • Now correctly drops loot, and drops one Tier 10 and one T6 wand, rather than two T10 wands.
    • Is immune to Touch of spells, freezing, and electric stun.
    • Is a little slower when turning.
    • Has a new projectile attack.
  • An array of "permanently drunk" creature variants were added, seemingly spawned in a rare easter egg pixel scene that has very specific spawn conditions. The spawn conditions are currently unknown, but may be related to the current date/time.
    • Beer Bottle items (previously seemingly unused) were overhauled and now contain a new liquid material, juhannussima.
    • Regular Potions can rarely spawn with the new juhannussima material if those same date/time conditions are met.
  • Haamukivi's ethereal enemies now all deal contact damage in addition to their regular attacks.
  • Toveri and Kauhuhirviö:
    • Both no longer have the final_secret_orb tag; it has been replaced with big_friend and small_friend respectively.
    • Toveri now gets extremely upset if you start killing his smaller friends. You have been warned.
    • Killing 9 small friends and then tackling Toveri is required to complete one of the new Achievement Pillars. You monster.
    • Now naturally spawn at 1 of 6 possible locations in the world, depending on the world seed.
  • Stevari and Skoude are now immune to suffocation / drowning.
  • The small controllable cart from the Racetrack (a.k.a. Karl) can be used to more easily move the Suns for the Uusi Aurinko questline.
    • Karl will no longer kill entities polymorphed into the small friend.
  • A pair of new Books was added, one each by the Coral Chest and Dark Chest
  • Giga Black Hole no longer uses the same passive visual effect on wands as the regular Black Hole, it has a new effect of its own.
  • Spatial Awareness perk now shows Dark/Coral Chest locations, and the location of the Friend Room where Toveri is located.
  • A new Book has been added near the Kuulokivi.
  • Checks looking for parallel world positions (shadow bosses and Guiding Powder mainly) have been adjusted and should work a bit better.
  • Perk removal via the Nullification Altar should work a little more effectively to neutralize the effects of the Lukki and Leggy Mutation perk.
  • Essence to Power was buffed immensely, and can quite easily destroy Kolmisilmä even at high orb counts.
    • This may be a bug / just overkill and is likely subject to change.
