Its about time I made a post about the games development while its been in development mode.
We want to show you what's been done, and theoretically it should get everyone excited (at least a tiny bit).
First things first, the new guilds and pvp arena's are almost done. They are solely designed for pvp, and the guilds are made to look a little more friendly and setup for battle.
The two new maps are Sky Warzone, and Underground Warzone. The Sky Warzone is a massive clan v clan map for large scale conflicts. The Underground Warzone is for smaller scaled battles between clans.
Aside from the pvp aspect, many new animations and sounds have been added to weapons to make each weapon feel better, feel unique, and offer a better experience when used in combat.
Exp gained when leveling has been reduced to 1 as opposed to the old 3 per level. This allows for a more balanced leveling system, and makes everyone a tad less powerful against monsters.
Hold on, before anyone's Jimmies get russled, this is not an announcement for the release of EverEmber. What this is though, is a progress post.
The game has changed vastly since its state a year back. A massive amount of new and interesting features, mechanics, graphics, sounds, a housing system, mounts, etc... have been added.
The games current version is 3.5, and we are nearing an actual release. Having a release allows us to have actual reviews and postings of the game on MMO websites, and it offers a better player experience than the Beta. With more features, stability, and an improved server (thanks to @Ozfer for the new server and internet upgrade!), the game is far more playable and enjoyable to the player-base.
What we're planning on doing is putting the server into development mode where only administrators and developers can access it, meaning regular user base players will be unable to play. This is so that no users would be stuck in areas that aren't...
I'm just here to share some news about the server, and where we stand with the current release of EverEmber 3.0!
The server status is currently set to -Admin Only-
If you notice in the recent update, on the client when you are logging in, there is a crystal in the bottom left corner, if you hover over it, it will tell you the current server status. Also, it's color coordinated, Green = Online, Blue = Admin/Maintenance, Red = Offline.
So right now, we are blue, or Admin/Maintenance only mode, but here is why!
We are currently finishing up the most recent addition to EverEmber, Player Housing!
With some hard work from @Slasheree , we now have a fully functional housing system, and already have over 300+ different furniture for you to loot!
