Every time that they reply, it's more stupid questions that I've answered, or are irrelevant.
In other news, I've replaced Hunt with Escape (It's a mix of Blink, Invuln, and Dispel).
I've also completed the new Expansion pack (Trollheim) (Access to a new world FULL of trees, giants, and ores. Able to use the Runecraft mod), added new features to Wintermoor (Access to one of the new arenas...PvP will be open to everyone), and gave lava privileges to Premium players, only (Sorry, Drag...you'll need your title if you want to use lava).
I also fixed the Exp farming bug, and I will be preventing the placement of Gold and Iron ore blocks, so that they cannot be used for Future Farming (They hold no aesthetic value, anyway).
And, I even made the new donation method more secure, and it actually works now! ^.^
I no longer have to be online to do any of it, it's all automated. Tested and working.
At the rate things are going, I'll probably have the 5th Tier Classes ready for the release (It will be the full release, by the way. This means that prices will go up again, but I'm lowering some of them (I admit...some of the prices are kinda ridiculous...even though the double exp would normally be worth it. I got to level 50 Tier 2 in half an hour.)
Speaking of which...I'm lowering the exp rates a tad. I'm not resetting the levels again, but it will be slightly harder to level up (Even with the double exp), as I found it was just a BIT too fast. So I don't be halving it, or anything...just lowering it slightly.
I was talking about changing the method to lock things, but I changed my mind. It's staying.
I'm actually taking a break from working to type this out, as I'm working some slight server balance changes (You might notice some mobs not spawning in certain areas...though I doubt that I'll add that effect for release).
But I'm also taking a suggestion from the Minescape Forum, and I'm going to start working on new cities that you'll find new NPC's with harder quests...essentially making Bale a noob city, instead of the powerhouse that it is.
This means there will be no more armour being sold that's better than Gold. You'll have to move to other cities to get better armour from the shops. This also means I'll be making price variants, including the amount you can sell Gold Ingots for to the bank.
Speaking of this...I'm adding new items to the server, for use with Spout (this means I might actually FORCE people to use it for the server)...essentially this means new weapons, new armour, new food, new tools/items...
I've already made an Obsidian Sword, a wand that shoots fireballs (Without Mana), and various other weapons. I'm waiting a bit to start the armour, as it's not supported yet...but soon enough.
These won't be in this patch, though.
Finally...NPC's and Quests.
I've been holding off for too long now...and I'm going to see if I can get them working. They're kind of critical to play on the server...but I'm going to find a better way to do them...since they kinda sucked before. I need quest chains, not individual ones. So maybe I'll hold off, but I promise that I'll be working to get those done ASAP.
Other than all this...just some general administrative news.
1) I broke an Admin plugin that helps us fix things easily and repair large structures. I'm working on fixing that (Sorry, Chiral!)
2) I'll be posting more patch notes as I go on the Wiki, and in the forum (Sorry...anyone who cares!)
3) I'll be starting to hold votes soon (Probably will be one on the first post soon...maybe) for various things...make this more community-oriented.
4) I promise I'll start keeping people more up to date on changes I'm making. As there have been a few.
But yeah. Refund. Woo. Stupid customer service people...still nothing.
Nooooooo! Not the [Premium][Premium]!
I don't see myself using lava that often, so it should be alright.
I'm glad to know you're still working on this.
I should hop on teamspeak sometime.
Heh, just get one of your minion...errr...residents...to do it.
And of course I'm working on it, I'm not going to take your guys' money and just sit here waiting for something to happen ;P
I'm taking the time to make it better when it's actually up again.
And yes, you should ^.^
Come on Cav, put you AINGWY FACE ON! :angry.gif: Get that money back :biggrin.gif:
Oh and for nation names, how 'bout Kra-Zjiva? I based it off of "beautiful" in Russian (something along the lines of Kracivia) and added funky letters that look good in an old fashioned name.
Put on my angry face? :tongue.gif:
I've reached the point where they said "Our manager will reply shortly", and when they didn't reply after 37 hours, I sent them a dictionary definition of "Shortly".
They responded really quickly after that one...
But yeah. Shouldn't be too much longer.
Just more excuses to have me make this server better ^.^
Basically, I created a new world instance.
You go through a portal in Bale and end up in a small room.
You then go through a red-blue portal and it will auto-assign you to one of the teams.
Each team needs to race to the opposite end of the arena, steal the opposing flag (Break the wool), and take it back to their spawn.
This gets them a point.
Another way to get a point is by draining the other team's "Life Points" (Lives) to 0. You start with 20, and they reset when they reach 0.
First team to 5 points wins.
You get the default loadout (I'll be adding more soon) at the start, but your inventory IS saved for when you leave.
I'll detail everything on the Wiki when I can be arsed to do it.
