It's me, xland this week! :3
We've made lots of progress on the mod side of the project, the past two weeks (In addition to a new coder who's done some cool stuff).
First off, Alecoz2, our best modeler, made a monster featured in the light novels, the <<Wind Wasp>>.
This monster can be found in the second floor, and has an 8% chance of dropping a Wind Wasp Needle.
That's all I can say for now without spoiling too much. On the right side of the page (Below the shoutbox) is the poll section. Be sure to tell us which version you like more - Blocky or smooth!
Kudos to alecoz for the amazing wind wasp models!
Think I'm done talking about Alecoz? Well you're wrong. He also made a teleport gate!
In addition to models, we've also begun working on a player database. The database shall contain lots of handy info, both for moderators, and for players. It will contain leaderboards (Such as 'top 10 most popular guilds,' 'Highest level player," etc.
Each player will have a page showing it's stats, name, appearance, etc.
Guilds will have pages showing the number of members, which members, the guild rating (Which is decided through a complicated formula) and such.
We've already began working on it. For now, everything has to be added manually, though we will later be adding the API to the server to make it add players & guilds to the database automatically. We may post a picture or two next week.
In addition to guild database, we've made a new skill that can only be unlocked/leveled up by guild leaders.
Basically, the skill, <<Influence>>, affects the member cap of your guild. The skill gains 2% exp every 50 hours in which the member cap is maxed out. If you kick/expel a member from the guild, you lose 2% exp for that skill. Don't worry though, you won't de-level from kicking members - It only allows you to kick a member if you already have 2% in Influence.
If a member is kicked or leaves the guild, the clock is reset - You'll need to wait another 50 hours.
