Bumping this. This was a promised feature and would be....really quite nice?


That's hardly a promised feature. Anything not being discussed in Runefest, development blogs, Game Jam etc don't have high priority even if somehow they are being work on in the future anyway.

It was discussed at Runefest though.


That was the Treasure Trail Rework which has been released, but there was no definite specifics on Footprints. They had some ideas on the Footprints rewards but I think they said too much work and killed it.

I remember in the RuneFest 2017 Keynote, Mod Mark had mentioned "Now, we're still planning to do the clue reward footprints that I talked about last year, but this needs some pretty complex work that my poor little brain couldn't hope to understand. And it will take a while before we're able to do that, as we prioritize other projects - but it IS coming."

That being said, with the big ticket items like mobile and bank rework having been released, the sunset of the Java client, and the "smooth movement" update, I would think that a lot of the technical hurdles have been cleared at this point. At the very least, if they plan to shelf an idea discussed at Runefest and emphasized that it is, indeed, still being worked on, that it is at least mentioned somewhere in a Weekly Update / Patch Notes post that the idea has been scrapped.

I bump this post in the hopes of hearing a response from someone - a dev, mod, or whomever working on these kinds of updates - who would have a confirmed status on this content via the game's actual forums. I assumed this would be the right place for that, as it seems quite a bit cumbersome to hunt down each Jmod twitter account and scope through what each individual may or may not have tweeted.

Good that you brought up Mod Mark's comments in Runefest. Obviously, the footprint feature was just an idea that they have thought of during the Treasure Trail Rework design phrase that even Mod Marks said it was complex and
"it would take a while before we're able to do that"
.

Incredibly obvious that the Footprint Rewards wasn't a promise as ResonantEcho called it.
