Pirates of the Burning Sea : Fortaleza da Luz Devlog

Posted Jun 18, 2008 by Keith Cross

Flying Lab Software has posted a devlog detailing the design process behind Fortaleza da Luz mission in Pirates of the Burning sea.

Once the mission had reached a certain state (the state where we can show it to people and not be embarrassed), we started in on the testing of the mission. Major changes often come about in response to feedback from other developers, and from players. Luckily for us, this was the point at which our experience making Bey’s Retreat paid off.

An important reality of game content, and on-line game content in particular, is that it “ages”. This means that any encounter we can make gets easier with time, simply by virtue of being played. Players that are daunted by content the first time they see it find it extremely easy the fifth time they play through it, and that’s if they ignore strategy commentary being spread via the internet or by word of mouth. Our response to this is to have three people playing Bey’s Retreat or Fortaleza da Luz daily (literally every day for at least a month) with the remaining members of the group coming from a pool of people who haven’t seen the content nearly as much, if ever. This way the three people who see it every day get to see the mission age in fast-motion, while the other members of the group provide fresh perspective.

Shadow of Legend : New Crafting System

Posted Jun 18, 2008 by Keith Cross

The folks at Shadow of Legend have prepared an overview of the new crafting system that was implemented in v.0.8.7.0 of the game.

The release of Shadow of Legend v.0.8.7.0 introduced a new and improved Crafting System, designed to simplify the system’s interface, and make crafted equipment unique to the different races.

Like the old system, the new system will show you:

1.    Materials required to craft
2.    Item that will be crafted
3.    Progress bar while crafting item
4.    Option to cancel build

However, unlike the old system, the new system features:

1.    Varying attributes
2.    Less materials required for crafting

Varying Attributes
Items will no longer have fixed attributes after being crafted.  Instead, item attributes will fluctuate either up or down 30% from a standard, so you can either end up with a super item or a lackluster one.  But, not to worry!  You can always split the crafted items that you aren’t satisfied with.

Less Material Required
The material requirement for crafting equipment has been greatly reduced.  Combatants only need to find ores, Mages need only wood, Monks need only leather, and Archers need only cloth.

Go ahead and try out the new system.  Let us know what you think!  Suggestions go to solbeta@smartcell.com.  Thank you!

General : Beyond the MMORPG: The Continuum

Posted Jun 17, 2008 by Jon Wood

In this week`s Beyond the MMORPG feature, we take a look at a game called "The Continuum". The Continuum is a flash-based game currently in beta that comes down somewhere between a miniatures game and a trading card game.

Every now and then here at MMORPG.com, we like to venture outside of our genre to talk about a game that, while it doesn’t exactly meet our game list criteria, still might prove to provide a little bit of fun for our readers.

Today in “Beyond the MMORPG”, I want to introduce you all to a little competitive game called The Continuum. Being developed by a company called Seven Lights, The Continuum is currently in the beta phase of production.

One of Seven Lights’ developers, a man named Tim Harris, was kind enough to take some time out of his production schedule to show me around the game a little bit, so that I could share what I learned with players like you who might be interested.

EverQuest II : Dear Devs: Part Three

Posted Jun 17, 2008 by Jon Wood

MMORPG.com's Adele Caelia recently submitted some questions from EverQuest II players to the game's developers. Today, we present the final three answers provided by SOE.

Hello devs and thanks for taking the time to answer some of the millions of letters I'm sure you're getting. My questions is a simple one:

Is there a way to make it so that the Necromancer class can choose between the male and female versions of the sorcerer pet spider? I'd really like to have that option and not be stuck with the gender based one. Thank you very much for your time.

Lineage 2 : North American Server Merges

Posted Jun 17, 2008 by Keith Cross

NCsoft has announced that they will be merging several of Lineage II's North American servers because of earlier migrations to higher population servers from servers which already had relatively low populations.

Since we opened server transfers in February this year, we’ve all seen a noticeable shift in what servers the Lineage II population is playing on. Many players transferred from lower population servers to higher population servers in the name of greater competition, which is in essence what Lineage II is about. This has left us with a few servers with low enough populations that the communities on those servers have expressed their concern.

After looking at the servers, we agree that some changes need to be made to help us maintain the very highest quality Lineage II experience for all of our players. As such, we will be combining a few of our North American servers in early July. With the exciting changes coming in the next Chaotic Throne installment (which we plan to launch later this summer), we believe that merging some servers now will create an even more active, competitive Lineage II community.

We aim to make this as smooth and painless a transition as possible for our players and feel this will balance and revitalize the overall server populations.

Please see the forum posting here for all the details.

Pirates of the Burning Sea : Town Revamps

Posted Jun 17, 2008 by Keith Cross

The Pirates of the Burning Sea official site has been updated with a devlog which looks at the aesthetic makeover of the game's towns.

Hey all, this is Nate the Environment Lead at FLS. I’ve been with the company for 3 years now and have made a lot of towns/areas for the game in that time. Its an incredibly fun and educational experience recreating the 18th century caribbean. But alongside transporting the player back in time, we have also been striving to add even more of the fantastical flair that pirates are so synonymous with.

For this last milestone one our tasks were to revamp some of the towns from their previous art. Some of them had become outdated and needed sprucing up, which gave us an opportunity to really piratize them! Here are some examples of the revamp for Skuzzy Pirate Town.

Rappelz : Epic V: Dragonic Age

Posted Jun 17, 2008 by Keith Cross

The folks at Rappelz have released a preview of Epic V: Dragonic Age, the next update for Rappelz which will introduce fresh content such as new zones and a new dungeon.

The upcoming extension Epic V: Dragonic Age for the free-to-play MMORPG Rappelz, scheduled for the beginning of this summer, will introduce a lot of new content in the Rappelz world. Here are some of the changes regarding new areas and dungeons:

The main new zone brought by the Epic V is the Veiled Island. Once an untouchable and hidden fortress built by the Draconians to protect the secret of the Dragon's Powers, the Veiled Island has been discovered by explorers who opened the road for new adventurers and monster hunters. Without adventurers to control the monsters populations for ages, the creatures did proliferate and became stronger. The Veiled Island is now one of the most dangerous areas of the world of Rappelz, where only the strongest will be able to survive...

The Dragon's Lair is the dungeon of the Veiled Island, a deep cave full of agressive dragons and powerful magical monsters. Far more impressive and dangerous than the Donjon of Palmir, the Dragon's Lair is a challenge for the highest level adventurers and characters below level 120 may not even survive at the entrance of the cave. The Dragon's Lair will be the location to collect new equipements, but above all, it will be the only place to tame the new unique creatures: the White Dragon and the Cerberus.

Apart of these two new epic zones, many other territories have been revamped and changed in order to propose to the adventurers new hunting grounds. New monsters, such as the Blood Faeries, Twisted Succubus or White Wolf will also join the existing bestiary.

With several hundreds of thousands of players around the world, Rappelz is one of the major international free-to-play MMORPG. The extension Epic V: Dragonic Age, scheduled for the beginning of this summer on the French and German servers, is the first major content addition since the launch of the game in its European versions
