Upcoming Changes with 1.3x or maybe 1.4? ;)

September 27th, 2011 33 comments

Hi all,

always when i look on the dev Blog i realize that i make to less posts 😉 But at the moment i can’t tell that much we are doing a lot of backend Stuff in 1.33 and trying to get out more server performance and we have some good results already achieved. In Frontend development there a lot of old screens transformed to the new layout some are good some are still bad and need some work, so we made a lot of rollouts on public beta and had a lot of bugs then we did a lot of bug fixing, rollout etc. But after that more maintain version 1.33 we want to implement some more cool stuff 😀

Stuff like the new Town overview and Building placement. I think zet posted some ideas long time ago and finally we have a concept but its not finalized yet so i can’t tell you that much. But you will be able to build your “own” town which means different graphic sets, you can place your buildings on other locations, you are able place stuff like trees, seas and some new things you will need some material for it. The other new thing to the town is our plan is that buildings can get damaged over time and you have to repair it or you will loose a whole building 🙂 I have also one screenshot for you guys (notice this is an really early screenshot and it is not completly :D)

Second upcoming change will be to improve the market i know a lot of ppl ask for it days? months? years? I don’t know but the good news are we will do something 😀 We have a really great list of improvements which are requested by the players and we hope we can improve the market so that everyone will like it 🙂 (In the next days i will write more about it, this is my hint to not forget about it)

Working on some GUI

September 1st, 2011 18 comments

First: Yep, I am leaving the The West team soon and made mostly clean up and minor improvement works in the past month. For example, the reload and minimize buttons for the new window gui is working now properly, I added a combobox GUI element and I’ve added some other minor stuff.

I am not so happy to leave the team now as there are still features that should be added and updated, like a new duel system, the character migration, and a new multiplayer event thing similar to fort battles and I would have really liked to do that myself. But after 2 1/2 years in the team, a project switch could do me good and gives others to step up.

So long then, I am looking forward for new updates in the game, I am sure there’s much to come in the future!
