  1. So what you say is that we can keep the banlist seeing it doesn't matter But yeah.. sadly some on that list would just come back to be "not nice" (i would use another word, but we want to stay civil here) to other players. Or hang out on forums to be negative and bring down others while even acknowledging that they don't want to play the game.
  2. Hi! Nice to see you around!
  3. Hi Atherys! RP-PVP I was contacted by some pure RPers that brought up a concern about how to handle RP fights between 2 people (1v1) in a non-combat zone (Capital or no-pvp towns or other zones). And so I am interested to see if there are actually enough people with the same concern that would like to play on Horizons. The basic idea would be to have an established system for RP-PVP for 1v1 situation which would be totally optional (so both players would need to agree to use it) and it wouldn’t be enforced by staff (would be just too much drama). To make this clear and simple: 100% optional, non-enforced RP-PVP System. Only benefit would be that people who want to use such a system don’t need to come up with it for themselves on the spot and just can use this system. AtherysTown Last Staff-Meeting the team got a chance to experience Headhunters Town plugin and wow, it’s just great. It’s a lot sleeker than towny (none of that stuff we never used) and got a few more features that really add to the convenience of using it. I don’t want to go into much details at the moment (still some work to do) but you will get a bigger article about how our new town plugin will work soon. Quests Our Quest-team has now been formed and are starting to develop the story lines which you will be able to explore. We have also selected a mod for the quests plus some additional stuff (NPC’s mainly) to be able to give you immersive and fun quests. And if you have a great story laying around that would make a good Quest send it to @Dani. Maybe the Quest-team can use it! AtherysMods We still work on a mount mod for Horizons but ran into some problems (mostly me personally :D). So maybe one of the readers here has experience with mod compiling for forge. If so I would love to pick your brain to get some problems out of the way. Coders I’m happy to say that we got one more coder to the team. But yeah we still could use some more -Sellt
  4. In case of Horizons its not a playerdata wipe. Just the game for which stuff was bought is going offline and a new game is coming. A sequel so to speak of. This won't be Atherys Ascended anymore with some added features. We redo everything. And yeah that option was always in the T&C. Stuff just got rewritten to make stuff clearer in January. And thanks for telling us about the addition we need to add. Btw. If you ever run into a problem because a site did change their T&C without notice and you got a problem because of that... you can sue. Several lawsuits were already successful because the "without notice" is rather assholey. (cause people can't accept T&C that weren't known at that time). So yeah. If we plan to change the T&C there will be a big notice forum topic about it.
  5. Hello Atherys! Welcome to my next Diary entry! Website First I want to tell you that In case you didn’t hear. We moved our website to a new hoster (mykinghost.com) because on the one we had we were very limited in diskspace which lead to crashes and other problems, which we now don’t have anymore! We are still tweaking the performance but it should already be more stable. If you find bugs please report them to us and we will take care of them ASAP. Talking about Website. We have a person that is making a new Theme for our Forum Software which should be a lot closer to an RPG feeling than the current one. Which most likely will be introduced with the release of Horizons. Overall Progress Right now the different teams are working on their stuff. Head is working on our own Town plugin (making it perform a lot better than Towny!). PvP Team is refining the pvp/skillsystem concept, the buildteam is working on the capital styles and on some dungeons (for current version and for Horizons) and the mapmaker is working on all the flora for the different nation biomes (including some cool glowing crystals). So right now all is proceeding at a normal pace and it’s mostly grunt work. But I think next week I can show you some cool stuff! The Artists We now got a new team lead by @Altairas which is working on pixelart for new weapons and armor. This will be used for higher tiers of gear but also as skins you can buy in the store then (only skin. Stats will not be influenced), staying in line with my promise that we will only sell cosmetics to finance the server. If you are a great artist (pixelart) don’t hesitate and contact Altairas. I’m sure we can use some more help there. More People We can always use more help in any form, but right now it seems that most of the teams have a good amount of people in it, only one group could really use reinforcement: Coders. I like again to call out to all modders, coders, plugin wizards and all around geniuses out there. Atherys needs you! -Sellt PS: SneakPeak on what i'm working at the moment: This is Spike, my mount
  6. Hello Atherys and welcome back to my weekly Diary! As promised in the last Sellt Chat I shall return to make these weekly updates to keep you folk up to date on what is going on in the wonderful world of Atherys. First let me tell you I’m absolutely blow away by the Support and offer of help we got since we announced Horizons and I just love seeing people planning for the future on this new and glorious new continent. Now to what actually did go on since the announcement. 1. Build Server Atherys now has its own Buildserver where you all can claim a plot or more and work on your projects for Horizons. You will have access to the complete ConquestReforged block palate and WorldEdit. When you join for the first time you will already see some great builds by the community and I’m looking forward to see more of this! Right now we host it on another (third) Server but soon we will move it to one of our main Servers. We do this because… 2. Overworld & PvE World We move the PvE World onto the same server as the Overworld. This will solve some issues we had with the Data Transfer between both servers. Originally I planned to shut the second server down and save some money, but now we actually have a use for the second server and so I’m Happy. 3. PvP Team After the Announcement the PvP Team opened up for applications and now it looks like we got a good bunch of people together to hammer out a fantastic PvP system. Some of you may have already seen MisChivs post on the forum about the concept they are working on. 4. Ticket System Ever got mad that you can't really write much in a ticket in game? Or attach screenshots? Then we got something for you. Soon we will launch a new ticket system that will work outside of Minecraft where you can write a ton more, add screenshots, get reply’s by staff, etc. We will beta test it for a while and if it’s promising we will work on connecting it to the in-game system. This will allow you to report bugs not just in atherys but also on the website, buildserver etc. 5. Nation Buildstyles I know many of you are waiting impatiently to see the different build-styles and while some are pretty much set others are still somewhat in the air, there are just to many ideas floating around at the moment. Hope we have it down soon. 6. More People We are still looking for more people, coders and artists (creating new gear!), to join our team! So if you are able to code sponge plugins/mods or are a great pixel artist or know someone, apply/tell them to apply! 7. Donations Because that was a bigger topic in the last few days I wanted to use a bit of today’s diary to clear somethings up. Some people wish we would make it very clear which dollar is used for what, but that’s just not possible seeing that these requirements are shifting all the time. I only can promise that the money would be used wisely and to the best possible effect. For example in a crazy universe where we would get hundreds of dollars of donations I would use them probably to get mythicmobs converted to sponge (the makers are asking for a lot of money before they would do it sadly), cause it’s just a fantastic tool to make some cool content (see xathas creations, and there is so much more possible with it). 8. The End So yeah this was it for this week’s diary. I hope you all are at least a little bit enjoying this journey to make Horizons and I thank you all for just being here! 9. Sellt's Kitchen Today I will not again add a recipe but a tipp! A while ago I had some chicken legs at home but no butter to put between meat and skin (to make the skin crisp and the meat moist) so I checked my fridge and saw I had some cheese (cheap sandwich cheese like this: https://goo.gl/iggIS1) and just put that between meat and skin. Safe to say that I will do this now always! It was delicious and the meat still didn’t dry out.
  7. Yeah totally understand that. And if it was a "get investors or bust" situation i would do that. But right now i don't want to back myself into a corner. If i split it up it quite easily can be that one feature is way over-funded and others way not enough. That's also way i'm not looking for Investors but give people who want an option to donate to help out Other way is to contact me directly then you can tell me for what you would like to invest and i can tell you if that part even needs investment
  8. The 5 player nations are together about half as big as the current Map. And the idea is of course that we get a lot more players again than as its now
  9. Hi, They are not needed per se. But if people want to support us in keeping Atherys alive and help us fund somethings then this is the option for it. We had several people asking for this so we put it up (keep in mind that we had that option open too in the past. We just removed all other options). I can't tell you for what the money will be used exactly in the end. Only that it will be used for Atherys (i think if you see what we remove from the stores for horizons to make the player experience better shows i'm not in this for the money :D). Possible uses: Mapmaker Additional Coders Artists (new items, pr stuff, etc) Webdesign Helping me keeping the server up (which i do gladly but i'm not above of accepting help in that regard :D) Etc. -Sellt
  10. Hello A'therys! Yesterday we had the Sellt Chat where I introduced what will happen with A'therys and where we are going. In two words: A'therys Horizons Yes, we are working on a new A'therys, it wont just be another iteration with small changes, it will be basically a new game. First, the bad things that will happen: All player data will be wiped, everyone will start new. This means no towns, no money, no exp and nothing that was sold in the Store. Now, the good things and why we have that wipe: Atherys will go modded. For what we want to do we can't stay with just plugins, but need to expand and going modded was the logical step. This also means a switch from spigot to sponge, which means our old plugins will not work anymore (no Towny and no Heroes). But don't fear, @HaedHutner is already working on our own custom town plugin (which incidentally allows us to have a town plugin that doesn't have a tonne of stuff that we do not need and also could possibly slow down the server!). Same will happen with the pvp plugin. Classes and skills will be entirely new, as will be the way you level. Store bought items, including towns, will not be available anymore for real money. All these things you will need to play for in order to obtain them. We will have some things we will sell, however, they will be entirely cosmetic. Towns will be more restricted than it's now. You will need to fulfill some requisites to create a town (how many players join, resources etc). Titles will also not be buyable from the store. You will earn titles through playing which also gives a lot more meaning to a title than it is right now. Map One of the big mods we will have is ConquestReforged which will add over 6000 new blocks. Luckily, we got one of the best ConquestReforged map-makers to make us a custom map and from what i already saw it will be fantastic. Size wise it will be smaller, while the landmass will be about the same, (a lot of ocean has been remove). A big part of the map will be the Adventure Zone (Shattered Lands) and so the actual land where you can build your towns will be about half of what we have now. Nations Another big thing: We are turning the globe and will move to another part of A'therys! You will be able to choose between 5 new nations and explore a sixth one that fell into ruins. The last one also will be the Adventure Zone with mobs, traps, dungeons, quests and an expanded Conquest System (for all the pvpers). The 5 new nations: Gennaian Islands: The Gennaian Islands are a collective of Kingdoms under a single national banner; akin to Ancient Greece. Daidama: Daidama is a ‘paradise’ of walled cities; where crime is swept away by justice, and atonements are swiftly dealt out. Dalkun-Tir: The lands of Dalkun-Tir are lowland scrub and rocky steppes, inhabited by the spurned and exiled; hardened nomads who navigate the harsh landscape. Atvoria: Once ruled by the god Nalageos, Atvoria is a land saturated with glamour due to the dragon Zahatmos’ tampering with fate. As such, the people are involved within a constant story, where superstitions and fables come to life. Harugraun: Rugged terrain of mountains and forests; a land that pioneered gunpowder and rivaled only by the Daggerlands in ingenuity. It is a shame, therefore, that they happen to take five steps back every generation from sheer spite and strife. More Information on the Nations will be forthcoming, including their buildstyles. My (your) Story We heard you and we want to give you more influence on the story of this world. As such, each player will get a profile page on the forum connected to the A'therys server. If you achieve something, (slaying the evil endboss, becoming Nationhead etc), you will get you an entry in your personal timeline and if appropriate in the Nations Timeline (Nationheads, Wars etc). You also will be able to add your own personal entries to your own timeline (only difference will be that the official stuff will have a "official" sign). Depending on all these things and our own ideas the world will also evolve. How far and in which direction, I can't say. Release Date We don't have a deadline. We don't want to do another Evo and actually take the needed time to implement everything we actually planned. Further Information I will resume my weekly diary where I will keep you all up to date. Additionally posts will be made to go into more details of what we are doing, what mods you can expect and what we are planning but didn't mention here (several things, but we need to be a bit further with it before it will be revealed). Callout If you are a coder, builder, artist, pr specialist etc. and you want to help. Contact me or use one of the forms (builders) to join the team! I can't promise your money but i can promise you to work on a fantastic game and the pride that will go with it -Sellt Pictures
  11. Hi Atherys! So to make this a bit more visible. This Friday we will have a Sellt Chat where I will disclose some news about the future of Atherys (don't worry, its good stuff :D). So if you want to be one of the first to hear it join the Chat! The chat will be held on teamspeak in the sellt chat room. ip is chat.atherys.com -Sellt
  12. Oh please... is this about the rumors going around? Already told you and others.. you can always ask me and i would be honest to some point. But doesn't matter, see calendar. Friday will talk openly about them and tell everyone whats actually true and what not
  13. until
    Topic: The future of Atherys! (a good one!)
  14. Mhm... as the time i asked you to talk to me cause I would have loved to hear it and you then wrote me "ykw, no. Ima drop it. Not giving you any ammunition later." I'm still not sure what you mean with ammunition.... Nobody ever got punished in any way for telling me what they think and what they see as issues... For all the others reading and to make this post worthwhile. My door is always open and there are absolutely no bad feelings from me when you tell me negative things As you can see we let everyone speak their mind (what he means with muted is that his posts are locked until reviewed by staff (for reasons i don't need to lay out here). I think almost all get through (as you can see)). And hi edd! good to see you!
