    Hello Atherys! I'm back from holiday! (which, btw. was fantastic! literally!, Orcs, Magic, Undead, Elfs and War!) And now back to work for Horizons, which is progressing slowly but steady. So lets recap where we are right now: 1. Map The Horizons Map is still a work in progress (a test of the Gennaian Isles can be found here: Map Topic). The map maker has been working tirelessly to create countless assets ( no, seriously, we got him to count them up, it’s crazy the amount he’s actually created thus far ). Anything from trees and mushrooms to rocks and crystals. You already know, of course, that we plan to use the Conquest Reforged mod. The Horizons map will utilize the new blocks to create truly breathtaking landscapes. For Some pics i would suggest to check out our Twitter which is regularly updated: https://twitter.com/AtherysHorizons Also you can join our build-server build.atherys.com to see what others are working on for Horizons and/or plan your own stuff! 2. Internal Coded Plugins/Mods AtherysTowns Plots. Gone are the days of having to deal with pre-determined chunks of the world. The new Towns plugin does not operate using standard 16x16 plots of land. Instead, each plot is an independently defined rectangular bit of land, with some caveats. Minimum size and maximum area requirements will be imposed. This is primarily to prevent the claiming of extreme shapes such as a 1x256 plot or a 1x1 plot. Obviously, these sorts of claims would be malicious or utterly inefficient, which is why the plugin would prevent them. This Plugin is basically finished and ready to go (but we want to add some more nifty stuff like automated town managing to keep town members on their toes to keep it active). It has all the positives of Towny + a lot more good stuff - the bad stuff of Towny. AtherysCombat One hell of a Plugin head is coding here. It will be far more versatile than Heroes was and its visual representation will also make it much easier to use. A lot of it is finished and head is now working on the database for it. I think he has a lot of fun with that part. Quests & PvE The Quest team has evaluated several Quest and Mob mods and settled for BetterQuesting and and CustomNPC. They are "training" on both and working on a unique Quest experience. If you ever visited the Baile in Aloreh you know that we have some talented Quest writes, and with these Mods i know they will do some truly amazing stuff. CustomNPC also allows for some very different Mobs for you to fight which will stalk the Shattered Lands. Mounts We are also working on custom Mounts (i posted a pic of one in an earlier diary). This work is going a bit slow because i'm not that experienced at mod making, but i still making progress. Even learning 3D modelling in Bender (fascinating stuff). 3. Lore Here i like you to visit this post, recently made by Xathas: 4. Your Story This part i'm also working on personally and its going great. Sadly i can't show you much cause seeing code isn't that interesting. You will be able to see all achievements in chronological order and all the things you did in the World + add your own story parts. People will be able to see what you did in the past, including things that were one time events. Hopefully making your story unique. Additionally stats will be visible too. 5. PR We got a bit of a reconstruction in the PR Department (see here: PR) which you should read and check out. At least follow our twitter for all the newest Infos: https://twitter.com/AtherysHorizons 6. New Gear We have some Artists working on Textures for new Armor classes and new weapon types! In Horizons you can run around with a Mace! This will also be part of the evil money making scheme, Some of the textures will be sold as skins in the shop (only skins. No stat changes). So i think this is it for today. a recap where we are right now and a promise that all is still going smoothly -Sellt

    Good afternoon everyone! Our map maker DarthEnigma (@TrueDarthEnigma) has been hard at work with a prototype version for the Gennaian Islands. Please see below for the planet minecraft link where you will be able to download the world. https://www.planetminecraft.com/project/gennaian-islands-prototype-weareconquest-conquestreforged-atheryshorizons/ This world is obviously available publically, therefore it can be used however you wish. These islands are also a prototype so probably will not be used in the final Horizons map, but hopefully you get a good idea of the quality and idea we are going for Thank you for reading. -Staff Team

    Hey folks just wanted to say that @Dannie has joined the PR team for A'therys, he will now be handling the social media accounts and for me I'll still be handling the graphics/music sides of things with @jonathanbak and @Aurek! We will bring you guys updates about A'therys Horizons, so please follow us with these accounts! Have a nice day!

    So I 100% fell off the once a week updates, partly because we’ve hit a few stop-and-goes, I moved apartments and had no internet, and then got slammed with the big summer festival tech rush. BUT thankfully there’s a team behind me making sure ideas are put in and moving forward. Nation Lore Kilnholdt nearly completed. Will not be adding to the Wiki until closer to launch. Daidama roughly 75% completed; undergoing large rewrite. Atvoria roughly 50% completed. Gennaian Isles and Dalkun-Tir still in notes & concept phases. Shattered Lands in concept & reference phases. Updates to Player Characters Early in, I promised to find a better transition means between player characters and canon characters. New system in the works. No, I won’t be going LOTC crazy PS: Highly disappointed their shit doesn’t even come close to the actual world of Lord of the Rings, which their name implies at a glance. Right, player characters. New system to be implemented (unrelated to “My Timeline” which Sellt has mentioned) to streamline PC’s into the Wiki. Working out system of checks & balances. Also working out plans of attack for storyline events. Goal : prevent the win or no goodies mentality Better means of prize selection. Possible point system based on factors of participation and individual achievement, rather than “my side won”. C is for Contest! Submit a Creature to be considered for the Bestiary of the A'therys wiki. Creatures submitted must contain the following information. Name Environment/Region Physiology/Description Height/Weight Breeding Habits Unique Abilities (if any) Environment/Region (Does this creature reside in a particular region, or is it broady found? Which environments does it thrive in) Organization (IE: a group of lizards is called a lounge) OPTIONAL : Additional Information, Sketch, etc. Creatures may not exist in another setting, world, etc. Submit by August 31st : winners will be announced on September 14th.

    i mean people with furry and creeper skins kinda turn people off, it ruins immersion. also you really just need a chatbox to do RP, nothing else really. RPPVP can already be simulated without a plugin. heres a very rugged example e.g. player1: player1 swings a sword at player2 player1: player1 rolls a 20/20 player2: player2 dies *player2 commits suicide to simulate he died* then initiate and start rp with someone outside of events, mby even join a rp town, rp won't just magically come to you by itself

    Point taken. I'm going to remove myself from the discussion as well. You guys are right, I did often times reply with some pretty disrespectful comments of my own, though usually in response to people who were already being disrespectful. And yes, this thread did leave me very much frustrated, which resulted in some very frustrated replies. As you have very well pointed out. I try to avoid being hypocritical, but upon analyzing my posts from this thread that's pretty much what I've done in the end. With that being said, I'm going to withdraw from the thread as well.

    RP PVP already exists. This is simply a method to improve or make it a usable feature for RPers. Also, please get this ridiculous idea out of your head that this RP-PVP feature somehow replaces or is equal to minecraft PVP. Many RPers don't PVP and wouldn't do so anyways so how does adding this make the community smaller?

    Insta is one of the best platforms to grow, so widely used, especially with the target demo of Minecraft. Really worth keeping up with. If you want any pics for it, feel free to take some from: http://www.gazamobuildteam.com/ Could be good just to get some content on Insta, there is a few old A'therys pics on there.

    You should probably read up on the new nations for Horizon as Aloreh won't be there. Also, from a former town owner to another, recruitment via application this early in planning rarely works out well. Especially a long one like yours. If you insist on an application keep it short with the minimum information you require (i.e their minecraft name and how you can contact them). I'd also recommend getting your soon-to-be town organised either via skype, discord or any other similar platform, as well as documenting various things in Google Drive or similar. As for a build server, you can go on the A'therys build server (build.atherys.com), where you can play around with buildstyles and the new blocks. It does require the conquestReforged modpack in order to work.

    It doesn't need to affect me, if I think it's a waste of time, why would I support resources being put into it? And if I disagree with something, I'm naturally going to bash it. What kind of argument is "This is awesome but I don't want it"? The RP community has always been the smaller aspect of the server. There is two reasons for this. RP'ers tend to be reserved and clique'y. they distrust anyone who isn't in their circle and don't do much interacting with the rest of the populous. Of course this isn't all RP'ers, but in my almost 5 years on this server this has summed up most I have met. The second reason is, frankly, we are outclassed by Lord Of The Craft. Why join a half-assed RP/PvP server when there is a dedicated RP server that is just as easily accessible? I don't want to bash Atherys but trying to lean towards an RP heavy server (which has been happening ever since Edd stepped down, whether it be intentional or not) only ends in a dead server. Atherys was most successful in terms of a sustained playerbase in the days where it was a PvP server with interesting backstory and other enjoyable elements like town building and community. We offered a vastly enriched PvP experience. What does Atherys do now that other servers don't? It's RP side is trumped by LoTC because they have more lore, focus and the player base for it and we're trumped by Herocraft on the pvp half because the people who log onto that all want to pvp and don't have to deal with clashes on conflict. Saying there doesn't have to be an RP/PvP debate is like asking someone if they want tea or coffee, then giving them a mix of both together. At the moment Atherys is a compromise of 2 major components, and until it is settled on what one focus it wants, it's going to be outclassed by more specialised servers such as the aforementioned LoTC and HC. It's not a positive view of the server, but its a realistic one.

    And then you guys ask why we don't discuss ideas with you prior to implementing. Even this tiny, insignificant change which will in no way effect PvP has essentially devolved into a discussion on RP or PvP elitism with an "Us vs Them" mentality. An RP PvP system may not kill the community, but this attitude may certainly do. Both sides are to blame here.

    When are we going to stop taking advice from people who threaten our community? When are we going to start servicing people who deserve to be here? When are we going to stop allowing the minority to have a greater voice than the majority? I'd like to not mention names but lets not forget that Zorin here is a complete and utter psycho. She/They/It/Retard doesn't deserve to have an opinion on this forum

    1. Not quite sure, but there will be a reduced ocean size as has been requested before. The nations are still fairly large. 2. 5 to choose from, and one unplayable nation. 3. There are a few concept ideas floating around, but the Econ staff will be working on that soon. Ideas and suggestions are welcome at this stage. 4. There is a literal duck block. @Dannie gone wild.

    Gennaian Islands Vision Hello! just thought I'd submit something I've been working on. It's still a work in progress as I am waiting for the Gennaian Islands build style to be released but this was my vision for how the Gennaian Islands would look, terrain and atmosphere wise and judging on some of the screenshots I've seen on twitter I'd like to think I came pretty close! Anyway I hope you appreciate this is a work in progress and work will continue once I have the official build styles. But as for now I was just messing around with some terraforming and wall designs for houses and I'm pretty happy with how it's turning out, I've tried to use and incorporate the new Conquest Reforged blocks where possible but finding it rather tricky with the block ID's with WE (if anyone can help me out with that please PM me).

    Right now they are setup for everyone to use. To make one, hover over the Forums menu item and click on Clubs: Then just create a club by clicking on Start a Club: ... and modify all the settings etc. Once you're done you will be able to invite people to your club, make posts within the club and create your own calendar. This is something that we would like to use for town mayors in Horizons, but for now we will let everyone use it because we are still a ways off

    Completely unnecessary and clearly attempting to aggrevate. This thread is for discussion of the content of Sellt's diary, not petty arguments. Anyway, looking at the conversations that have gone on here, the opinion from the RP side is that it'd be a great addition to the server and would improve RP. The opinion from the strict PvP side is that it could detect from PvP and time and resources should be spent elsewhere. Now my perspective - a simple implementation would not take much in the way of time or resources, and is clearly wanted. It could also bring a few other interesting tools to the server, but we'll see. Overall, this could certainly be put on the list of things to do, although clearly as a lower priority than the core mechanics of A'therys like PvP.

    Question: What is the mechanic going to be specifically, cause nobody has said at all in this whole thread what it's going to be. Like I said earlier in this thread, talking about the addition specifically would help people discuss the mechanic instead of spewing chaos. All the staff has said so far is that it's going to be for RP, completely optional, and that's about it.

    My man, you literally entered the thread hostile. You even targeted someone by claiming they didn't know the definition of a word. You are equally or even more so at fault than others in the thread.

    Just a reminder on this as some of you have forgotten. This feature would be completely optional and not enforced by staff or rules at all. And if it is to be used, all people using it at the RP event would need to agree to use it. If you are just a PvPer who doesn't RP like myself, this won't affect you at all.

    That fight was annoying for both sides, building forts is usually not a good idea considering my group (the ones attacking the forts) had to use two GA's to even get into the box because of AOE's and then by the time we got into the box your team had blown a lot of their AOE's on us while we were GA'd leaving us at a huge advantage. I personally feel like that fight was really aids for both teams and overall wasn't a good fight especially for people new to PvP and the person I assume was your raidleader was someone who I can see freaking out at you guys because he tends to take PvP very seriously I honestly have kinda memed on this thread a bit, my b. I personally don't care if this is added, do I think the resources to make this could be better used in other areas? Yeah I do but at the end of the day I personally don't care. I think making blanket statements saying that RPers don't normally tend to be elitists is really silly, there have been many cases of RP'ers being Elitists throughout the history of Atherys, this has been shown to be true even in the eyes of the staff when Aloreh's government had to be dismantled and the positions re-filled do the the clique that had came to be the Orator court. I really actually think Fights with RP behind them have always been something that the PvP community has loved and I don't really see why those aren't done more, but I would disagree with you on saying that the PvP community "spam killing defenseless noobs for fun" is killing the server when at the end of the day the lack of advertising, lag that has plagued the server for all of evo, staff, the inconsistency and inefficiency in the pushing of heroes updates are all reasons that I personally feel like can be used to blame the low server population. I wouldn't try to act like the server can thrive without the PvP community without drastic changes because thats the attitude many players/staff members have had towards the PvP community and in the end it's always had the same outcome, a server with a less then desired population. I luv u <3 <3 Sellt asked for an opinion and he got it, I personally don't see a problem. If a player is going to argue his opinion on here and another staff member is even replying to him in this argument I don't feel like you should shut him down just because you don't like what he has to say. People are just using this thread to bash other people know and its getting pretty silly, I don't think it was @willbuilds who was the one who changed this into PvP vs RP, at the end of the day I don't think this caters to the most beneficial audience, and thats why I voted no because I personally do see it as a waste of resources but if in fact it wouldn't require much work to make then I don't see why its big enough to make a poll for and in fact should be added.

    I mean you're not wrong, but the other way around needed to stop too. But, don't get me wrong - I like lore, I like RPers and I like all the stuff associated with it - but it plagues me that some people what to be alienated to only one archetype on the server and not touch any others. I think staff should push people more to enjoy every single archetype of the server - not just allow them to stay hoddled in the RP archetype. I've enjoyed A'therys for so long only due to the reason that I HAVE played and enjoyed every archetype and role associated with the server, meaning, I've been a mayor, been a salesman, took part in running governments, and yes, I have RPed in events and just casually. I mean, yes, there's always going to be that one archetype that people favor more than others, but travelling and enjoying other archetypes of the server should be a requirement of the server - kind of how PvP and Merchanting or Building and Merchanting are both necessary to enjoy an archetype completely. I don't know what you guys are gonna end up doing - but, something to circumvent an entire archetype of the server just for RPers sounds like bullshit.
