STATE OF THE GAME - Week of June 3rd

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone !

We start our weekly update on what's going on with the game, what we working on and what are our plans for next couple weeks. First of all let me start saying thank you to everyone who played game in our first Alpha week, and trust me we know it was a bumpy ride. While we've been patching game literally several times a day during this first week, going forward, we're going to switch to more stable schedule of releasing major patch every two weeks. It'll give us time to properly test everything, before it'll be released to you. Please note that we still be releasing HOTFIX patches solving critical game breaking issues right away as soon as we see them and solve them. 

Our first week was focused on a server stability, client stability and issues associated with it. by now game is fairly stable and it's time to get to those annoying issues. Here's what we're working on right now :

MAJOR BUGS/ISSUES:

  1. Horse lag issue. To solve this we need to completely rewrite horse code from scratch, we estimate it'll take around week and a half. We know how to solve this. 
  2. Boosts disappearing on death. Some server side code needs to be rewritten as well as some client side, including UI. We estimate around a week  turnaround on this one.
  3. Disappearing Land Lot control column. While this issue can be solved by logging out and logging back in,  we did figured out cause and it'll be solved ina few days and will go into testing. 
  4. UI bug that displays 0 research points. Okay this one is UI bug, so clearly we know what to do. Still in meantime log out/in will solve and issue plus even if it says 0 - you still can learn blueprints
  5. Fixing collision issues like inability to pickup certain items ( Metal alloys for being one )
  6. We also have list of around 50 smaller issues we intended to fix for the next patch. 
     

QUALITY OF LIFE / GAMEPLAY IMPROVEMENTS:

  1. MOST IMPORTANT - Tutorial video that will be shown to all players at the first login to the game. This is most important part you guys mentioned and we heard you loud and clear. It's coming SOON !
  2. Make it possible to craft resources even if your inventory is full. 
  3. Add more NPC/Quests with more consistent rewards
  4. Loot changes, blueprints, overall balancing. Basically some things were not finished and rushed, some things require tweaking, balancing. All this ison a plate for the next patch. It will not be perfect, but it will be better than it is right now
  5. Timer and icon on the map showing your tombstone
  6. Resource requirement tweaks for a building stuff. Lowering overall requirements. 
  7. While it's not something that happens in next week or two, but in next 4 weeks for sure - we're adding three instanced events for both PVP and PVE players. You'll be able to "queue" to event and as soon as event starts, you'll be transported to instanced map. 
  8. We have team working on a wiki for a game, but we guess it's for the end of June :)

 

Overall our main body of work is revolving around making more NPC quests, balancing building - including resource AND level requirements, balancing and tweaking AI, and fixing all crafting, etc bugs. 

Please let us know what's bugs you most, what we should prioritize.

Nice work. Given the state in which the previous team left the game there is a huge amount of work to be done and you seem up to the task.

I'll check your progresses once in a fortnight (no pun intended) because to be honest, there are other games that already do what you plan to do but I'll keep an eye on this one.

Not meaning to be negative, but should builiding be priorized this early? At the current state of the game there's so little to do, earn and achieve.

Well - building is the game :). At least this is what we're making kind of :). If you think there's a little to do in a game - I doubt that future development will make it more for you to be honest.

Please make this happen.
