  • Monsters now drop weapons so you can upgrade and replace broken ones, still no repairing yet
  • Fixed bug with ghosted monsters near the 50x50 edges. Players could see them but could not attack them and they never move.
  • Map sending staggered more. It sends one at a time, waits for the previous to end sending before sending next one. But it still seems to lag up the client. Need to rethink this method maybe.

  • Basic Usage: can repair weapons on the ground and cut down trees. Not much but it a huge step and opens the flood gate for much more.
  • Redrew some monster images, adding a smaller and larger image. Plus added some monster carcasses that rot. Will add usage on them some day
  • Added medium and high monsters versions for Mud, stone and snow golems.
  • Use /trainskill <name> to train a skill after player creation. Need to create a "train skill" screen still. Just Farming and Blacksmith are valid now. You also get the starter tools.
  • Maps were not getting saved sometimes when you exit the game. It now saves automatically every 10 seconds but after testing it on the production server, it has a visible lag. So, I need to work on that some more
  • In the Map Screen, you can click on the big map and the smaller map will show that area
  • Morale is now displayed in the Attribute screen. Jerky can raise it.

  • Can use a tool on empty ground. So you can now dig caves down and up.
  • Underground is working which means... Mining works too! But still can't do anything with the ores yet.
  • Auto-tool spot is now active but seems to only work for mining right now.
  • Been updating monster images as I go too, adding smaller and bigger versions and some carcasses.
  • Can use hand on items. Main one is using a Life Stone to set resurrect spot. But this opens up harvesting fruit... when trees/bushes ever get fruit.

Sorry I have not been keeping this up to date. April was a nasty month, full of a long, busy business trip, getting and being sick the whole month and the icing on the cake... a death in the family.

I haven't stopped working on Guild Vale though but it has been slow for sure. Did a few updates and let me see what I can remember...
  • Cave Quests: Cave Rats and Rat Nest are the only things now that give loot. Look for warp portals, one in each 100x100 area.
  • Wilderness monsters don't drop loot but still do drop jerky for food.
  • Search skill added for use on Rat's Nests. The better the skill the better the loot. V6 had this too. It a useful skill for combat types. Much planned for it.
  • Usage pick list with scrolling. For Blacksmith, put a bar on the ground with a hammer in your inventory and you will see it, show all you can make with arrow button scrolling.
  • Blacksmith can make all the tools and weapons
  • Refined the GUI, made it more consistent looking
  • Can drag items around on the map to move them
  • Dropping items easier, it allows you to pick the spot to drop to
  • The usual refinement and bug squashing

  • Walk and Run modes. Run moves twice as fast but uses Stamina depending on your Run skill roll.
  • Peace, Defend and Attack modes
  • Added wheat and corn
  • Cooking: meat from carcasses used on a heat source(only one now, the furnace)
  • GUI updates, graphic buttons
  • Can Train skills in a window
  • Major skill XP changes:
    • Skills can be: Untrained, Trained or Mastered
    • Untrained allows the lowest level of usage, up to skill 10 based on attributes, no XP gain
    • Trained maxes out at 100 skill level with 100% XP gain, can train a skill at any time if you have the skill points
    • Mastered (same as classic Specialized) has no max with 200% XP gain, need a mastery scroll and skill points to train, scrolls found in quests with Search skill
  • Carcasses for most(or all) monsters, some can get meat from
  • Updated Cave up/down images and Cave Quest portals
  • Morale loss disabled for now since not enough food/ways to improve it yet
  • Level up animation
  • Maps show quest entrances/warps with a purple cross so they easier to find on maps
  • Gold coins are now Copper coins, can't mine them yet, just from quests and searchables
  • Goblins running around
  • Bug fixes and refinements

WIPED the world and players.
  • Main reason for wipe was XP changes. Leveling, skill improvement and skill points have been slowed down. Was too easy to level and train everything.
  • Re-did the caves. Using a different, better generator. Added bats and shrooms too.
  • Added little islands throughout. Should match land claim plots and be good for player homes.
  • Mastery Skill scrolls for Mastering skills. Only found in Cave quests.
  • Ruins added on the surface with undead guarding it.
  • Added wheat and corn
  • Can train skills in game
  • Stone and wood wall making.
  • Added minerals and precious metals to mining. Fixed rarity too so there should be plenty to mine now. Before it was kinda empty. Underground also got scattered "Pile of Bones" which is NOT a monster but something to search for loot. I do plan other crap underground someday.
  • Camp fires for easier cooking
  • Lots of refinement and bug fixing

My goal is to try and publish an Alpha version on gaming websites by the end of the year or sooner.
Things I know I need to get there:
  • NPCs, small towns at start spots with trading/selling/buying
  • More Quests
  • What's New and Help
  • Missile weapons
  • Basic Magic system
  • Basic Alchemy
  • Armor
  • Elevation (maybe)
  • Line of Sight (maybe)
  • Day and night and lighting (maybe)
  • Crap... my list is endless

Lots updated...

********************************************************************

September 5, 2019

- bug fixes for the "delayed adding to map" change from yesterday
- added a "transition" screen for when moving to maps that require
  loading data from the server

- DAILY BONUSES!!! Randomly selected when server restarts at night.
  Includes Life and Stamina renewal boosts plus a boost for each
  attribute! They are modest right now to see how much they can
  affect gameplay. Server sends you a green text message on enter.
 
- minerals farther from the origin (middle start spot), have
  increased skill and work requirements

********************************************************************

September 4, 2019

- changed how a player moves to other maps, like down, up or to a
  quest map. Before it added player to the new map then sent data to
  the client. This opened the player up to attack, especially when
  the client took a long time (10-20 seconds) to get the map data.
  Now, it keeps the player off the map until the client signals it
  has all the map data and is ready to be added to the map. (I was
  tired of my trader getting killed over and over!)

- zombies have carcasses
- changed humanoid monsters to not drop weapons on death, you need
  to search bodies for loot. Also reduced copper coin from them

********************************************************************

August 23, 2019

- added Shields, requires the Shield skill
- shield skill value gets added to weapon defense value on defend,
  so if your Axe is 20 and Shield is 10, you get a 30 defend skill
- shield armor value determines how long it lasts and if the player
  suffers stamina damage, like if a shield value is 10 and a monster
  hits for 15 then you will suffer more than the base 1 stamina use
- not sure how I like how it all works, need to test it to find out

- on a disconnect, the client will ask if you want to reconnect

********************************************************************

August 8, 2019

- added sewer quests to villages

********************************************************************

August 1, 2019

- reworked Goblins and Orcs. Evened out the levels over sectors.
- Goblins use daggers now.
- added human Bandits which use Swords
- added Grayvyn which use Maces
- Trade screen shows quantities now
- traders only buy items that are 100% life, not used/damaged
- Village Guards were stuck sometimes cuz of burden, can move now
- added medium and higher tools to trader buying/selling
- on death, you already loose ALL items but now get starter items

********************************************************************

July 29, 2019

- villages with traders added to start spots
- reduced untrained skill MAX to 10, was 20

********************************************************************

July 15, 2019

- added what's new to menu screen
- zombies added to dead biomes
- deadwood trees added to dead biomes
- camp fires create smoke

  and also planned are tabs for seperating items by catagory, like
  seeds, potions, etc, basically items that can clutter
- scroll buttons work in carry screen
- can drag items around in the carry screen to arm, dis-arm and stack
- double click on an item will arm or dis-arm it
- red splat animation for attack hits
- white/gray animation for attack misses

********************************************************************

September 16, 2019

  was updated and not read yet

********************************************************************

********************************************************************

October 23, 2019

- ARMOR added! Metal only helmets, chest and legs for warriors.
- monsters have different aiming: low, middle, high. So make sure
  all your spots are covered
- published on itch.io and tgc a week ago
- humanoid monsters (goblin, orc, grayvyn, bandit) spawn in their
  own biomes now instead of ALL
 
********************************************************************

  day and reward with Prestige. Will be able to spend Prestige points
  on special things like creating a Guild, eventually.

********************************************************************

September 30, 2019

- Remember Me option in login screen
- Mastering a skiil now takes half the cost to train it, rounded down
  and all of the free skills (Run, Climb, Swim) are free to Master,
  made the cost reduction because the benefit of Mastering doesn't
  quite fit the cost of the full skill
- life and stamina potions "Use" buttons show up when not at max

********************************************************************

  still need a blacksmith to make you arrow heads.
- Bow skill used for melee defense but only at 75%
- Auto picks up arrow ammo if it matches what you have armed and it
  is one you shot or own
- When an arrow ammo is picked up auto or manually, it will auto-arm
  if it matches what is already armed
- plant growth is MUCH better but did some more tweaks to it to try
  and get them to create patches

********************************************************************

********************************************************************

December 11, 2019

- cave quests have brown walls and show up better in the Map screen
- balanced wilderness monster(s): sabre, viper, mud golem, stone
  golem, snow golem
- future sewer quests will get walls, might fix current ones
- arrows that hit, collect on the monster, dropped on death
- seeds directly plantable from player to the surface, just need able
  hoe and then select an empty spot on the map to get usage button
- added sounds for various things like attack, hit, eat, drink, walk
- volume control in the Menu screen

********************************************************************

November 27, 2019

- in the process of evening out wilderness spawns so levels don't
  jump too much and gaps are filled in, so beware of their level
  before you rush to attack, done: rabbits, rats, spiders, mongrel,
  scorpions, loken, gators, crab, dragon fly
- Line Of Sight was lagging a lot, so got it optimized and using a
  lot less CPU, plus it only is in effect for quests now
- added LIGHT! That includes day and night cycles with the Map screen
  has the time of day indicator
- candles(bought at traders) and torches (made with wood and coal)

********************************************************************

November 21, 2019

- added Line of Sight for visibility
- balanced sword, axe, mace and UA damages so the damage range is
  widest for sword then reduces as you go to UA weapons

********************************************************************

November 18, 2019

- Unarmed weapons added :)
- fixed auto arming ammo bug
- traders still get cleaned at restart but only dup items get removed
  thus it allows things to actually stay for others to get to, a 1
  day clean out didn't let me got see what people had sold lately

********************************************************************

November 15, 2019

- Bow Mastery Scroll added
- NPC Trader items get reset at each server restart
- items dropped on PLOT land (villages, quests, etc) get cleaned up
  after about 6 real hours, protected land is exempt thus items stay
  there forever
- Search skill XP was set to 200%, set it back to normal 100%
- chat screen, who list, will show everyone who has logged in that
  day, added this so you can see that others do play this... maybe
- sometimes if an update fails and the main source code byte file
  gets corrupt, I coded a back file that might get used instead and
  thus allow to update next properly next time. Otherwise, you need
  to reinstall if the update goes badly.
