Rynelf's Dev Diary #2

Hello again. As you probably know, since HeadHunter's departure I am the lead (and only) developer now. I am not discouraged, however. This will be a brief update on what I've been working on recently.

I have three primary goals/plugins: Towns, Quests, and RPG (combat). These make up the pillars of gameplay and are what I'm striving to get feature complete as soon as possible. Of course, there are various other plugins that support these that need to be maintained, but these are the most complex.

Quests

I consider Quests nearly production ready. It just needs a few more features and polish.


What I've implemented recently:

  •  Timed quests
  • Repeatable quests
  • Dynamically hiding dialog options
  • A simpler but more powerful NPC system
  • Supporting a second scripting language (Groovy) that has better stability than the previous JavaScript version

What I'm planning to implement:

Towns
HeadHunter left a great foundation that makes it easy to add features quickly.

What I've implemented recently:

  • Most /town commands (name, invite, join, claim, info, motd, description, leave, etc)
  • Most /nation commands (name, ally/neutral/enemy, description, capital, etc)

What I'm planning to implement:

  • Plot "stuff" (owners, embassies, protection, etc)
  • Resident commands (not many of them)
  • The tax system

RPG
Much of the functionality in RPG is already there for the most part, but the main meat is missing: skills!

What I've implemented recently:

  • The base of how the skill tree will function (picking new skill nodes)

What I'm planning to implement:

  • More "types" of skills (toggleable skills, primarily)
  • The skills themselves, of course
  • Like Quests, a better UI (for upgrading your attributes and choosing new skills)

Conclusion
Hopefully this gives you an idea of where I am with plugin development. As always, I am always on the lookout for aspiring developers. I am Rynelf#8390 on Discord.

Finally, as poll suggests I have been toying with the idea of making the test server open to the public. I've seen many people try to connect but the server is currently whitelisted. There wouldn't be much to do except see how the current systems work, and there won't be a guarantee of saving progress as I have to clear the database regularly for testing.

If you have any questions feel free to ask.

      Hello, A’therys!
      This week we’ll take a look at our Development Team, and see what they’ve been up to in the code base of A’therys Horizons!
       
      Development Team
      Firstly, we would like to congratulate @CodeStripper, our newest addition to the development team! We are always looking for new members to join our development team, so if you think you can help please contact @Rynelf on Discord and see if your skills could be used to assist us! Here is our open source project on GitHub (https://github.com/Atherys-Horizons), if you would like to help!
      This past week they’ve been working on the Town Creation and Town Chats systems, which we have some pictures below showcasing what they’ve been working on.
      Important: Not everything is final though, so text and other things may be subject to change.

      (Town/Nation chat working)

      (Create a town via party vote)

      (Friends can build in your plot)

      (Others are blocked from building/interacting)
       
      Combat Team
      The combat team has come up with an idea to get people to try out the RPG Skills plugin without the need to gain experience, so that you can try out the skills and attributes systems more easily. This format will allow us to receive feedback faster than on the test server. The dev server can be accessed by using the command “/server dev2” while connected to any of the A’therys servers. 
      The development server will be open on Fridays so that you can test with us, and see where we can fix things or balance them out. All feedback is welcome. The server will be open for eight hours starting around 4pm US Eastern Time, 8pm GMT.

       
      Build Team

      A good way to join our build team is to log on to our “Community Build Server” which is build.atherys.com (it's modded) and find a plot to build on, simply do /plot auto and you will be teleported to the nearest plot available. You can work on a plot of your own solo or with a group of friends and when you are done with that build trial, please contact one of our build team leaders @skillet52 or @InsanibleLector on Discord, in which they will review your build and see if you have what it takes to join our team.
       
      Community Team
      The community team has been hard at work, working on getting information about A’therys out to the community. If you didn't know we’ve been streaming on Twitch around 5pm US Eastern Time, 9pm GMT for about an hour so if you’d like to join the stream, I'll be there to welcome you to the stream so we can talk and showcase some of the cool stuff that you may not have seen before and just have a good time with you all. I’ve also been uploading the stream on YouTube, I've called it our A’therys Horizons Showcase Series so if you have the time please give us a look on YouTube just in case you miss out on the stream, I usually upload them on Saturday at around 5pm US Eastern Time, 9pm GMT.
      Here is our latest video of last Friday's stream, if you have not had the chance to see it yet!

      And as always be sure to follow and join us on
      Discord , Twitter , YouTube , Twitch , Instagram , and Planet Minecraft 
      with more to come, so you’ll be able to see and share more about the A'therys Horizons development.
       
      Thank You for reading this post!

      Hello, A’therys!
      This week we’ll take a look at what the build team has been working on in Korth,the capital of Kilnholdt.
       
      Build Team
      Construction has been finalized on our newest edition to Korth. We’ve added a macabre work of art to the underground. Under the main palace of Korth lies a winding construct of catacombs, layer upon layer housing dead rulers, their families, as well as people of special import to Kilnholdts past. Tombs and tunnels both fresh and neglected, or wholly forgotten to time can be found here.
       

       
      You Can Help
      We have a new easy way to join the build team, you just have to log onto our build server “Horizons Build Server” where you can work on a plot of your own solo or with a group of friends, show us your best work and then after you are done you can contact @skillet52 or @InsanibleLector on Discord, in which they will review your build and see if you have what it takes to join our team.

      Hello everyone, new and old! 

      As you may or may not have heard, we have brought back a functional build of A'therys Evo onto the server. We've noticed that a lot of people have been wanting a taste of the A'therys experience and having a place in-game to relive some of your favourite memories will go a long way towards achieving that.
