Patch 6.1: Devs Literally Want Only One Thing And It's F***ing Disgusting

40 posts in this topic

S'up LotC? Enjoying Atlas so far? Of course you are. However some questions remain on everyone's lips: When will the Dev Team actually take on someone competent? Why did these morons remove Nexus and not have a replacement for [my favorite feature]? Why don't links in Persona cards work? Is the sexist coder culture to blame for the lack of women on the team? Will Sporadic ever post nudes? Indeed, we have many satisfying answers to all of these questions today.

 

Starting off, the rumors were true. We have a new coder:

This guy is ******* amazing and you're going to see a lot more of his work so you better start sucking up to him now while he's still in his early stages of development. We have some plugins from him and that other coder today so hold on to your hats.

 

 

CardEx

CardEx is a Card Extension Obelisk Module meant to add some additional fields to your Persona Cards. It gives you a Click for More... option on your main Persona card to add a variety of new tags to your Persona. There is also the /persona more command to directly see the extended Persona Tags. The new features are as follows:

Bio: Link to your character sheet.

Art: Link to character art.

Creature: An ability to add your accepted CA to your persona card, The tag will be the creature type AND be a link to your CA.

Culture: The culture of your Persona. Cultures have become important for many players' RP (often more so than their subraces), and so we want to maintain a list of Cultures. Currently no cultures are registered (hence the command will not yet work), but we will have a thread up for you to add your Persona's culture.

 

For VIPs there additionally are:

Card Colors: You can give your card a different color starting at VIP25. This affects your main and your extended card.

Wildcard Tags:  VIPs can define tags of their choosing except for some 'reserved' tag names which would otherwise overlap with other tags. These can be both links or in text form. You are allowed at most 1 wildcard tag for VIP50, 2 for VIP200 and 3 for VIP300.

 

use the command /cardex or /cex to get an Obelisk help menu and learn how to use these features. Some of these options are VIP-locked while others are in progress.

 

Note: Currently in-game there is also a poll which lets you decide on whether or not certain creatures (as defined by this new CardEx plugin) will get the ability to not have to eat and breathe underwater, assuming the lore states they need not do so. Feel free to vote on that. Note that this implies ONLY those particular 2 features for said creatures, not any kind of PvP buffs/nerfs.

 

 

Rebirth: Fishing

Thanks to Haintrain we have development going for a new Fishing plugin. The start of which he would like to showcase to all of you today. We're foregoing some features like fishing nets here but are re-adding the biome-specific fish and some nifty new treasures you can obtain by throwing out your rod. It's a throwback to our Dev 3.0 days and I'm sure Hain would love to hear all of you how he did on his first project, so that he may improve both his plugins and himself. 1.14 has a lot of aquatic updates so we're hoping Hain to be at a level by then to really capitalize on some cool new features.

 

To use this plugin, start exploring the biomes and casting your rod!

 

Rebirth: Farming

Our pal InfamousGerman also working on the ruins of what was once Nexus professions to add some convenience features to farming, planting the seed for what one day be a bountiful harvest. Tentatively called NativeFarming to hint towards the super-secretive Project Native, you should notice the works of this plugin aiding you for all crops except Nether Warts (which you aren't allowed access to at least until we rewrite Alchemy Lore.) (Ok tbh the main thing it does is make it so you don't have to replant but hey that's something)

 

 

Load times and Persona Cleansing

Fair warning about something that may or may not happen as we move forward. As you can tell we have managed to somewhat improve the time it takes the server to start up. As you cannot tell this took a lot of effort on the backend. So first of all you're welcome. Second of all we are continuing to pull in hours to make sure that this accumulation of loading times will not happen again. Part of this requires a bunch of tard-wrangling with Obelisk and the way it handles our User files. Another part of it is taking the old Persona database and taking the broom through it. The issue being here that we accumulated a lot of dirt due to dev fuckups, old players and orphan database entries, bugs, and GMs using the plugin in ways they weren't supposed to. This has lead to a lot of  issues for us on the backend. And as we move forward, this may mean that we will have to perform technical maintenance on the Database. If so, there will be some downtime on the server.

Anything most likely nothing will happen and I will make another post about it if it does. But if you want to be extra-safe, make sure to log into Atlas at least once and make sure you have played at least 1 minute of all of your Personas. That marks them as still being in use.

Is these changes live live now? Or will they be in a very near future?

I love the idea of Rebirth of fishing, I'm a fishaholic, but are all the Biomes included and are all the fish named or will only some rare ones crop up? I admit immediately going to CT and fishing in the plains, but all I'm yanking out is just the usual Raw Fish/Raw Salmon. Same as in the Savanna Biome.
