News & Information / Skill Update (Patch Status)
August 07, 2017, 09:36:59 pm
As many of your probably noticed the start of the skill update was quite difficult and a lot of bugs were found that we were unable to find in the whole test period of the skill system. We are still discovering new issues daily but I worked till 5 am to ensure that at least most of the big gamebreaking issues are fixed. Please report all issues to me, best would be to add it to the forum post that already tries to collect all the bugs. If you lost an item due to a bug or your character wiped message me and I can restore the items. I know it has been a difficult start but I hope that we all can improve this game experience and make it bug free. I have 3 things that I want you to especially report to me:
- Dungeon boss rooms not spawning mobs and boss (should be fixed)
- Items breaking for no reason (dunno whether it still happens)
- Extreme lag (I looked into it and fixed some stuff but dunno whether that caused it)
- Character wiping (Describe how it happend)

I can't post a full list of issues I already fixed but trust me, there are a lot. I think it is at least playable right now.

All in all I wish you all best of luck for looting and I hope that you enjoy the new skill system.

Sincerely,
Jalau

Dear MysticRunes Community,
we are very pleased to announce that the skill system has been making great progress and is now ready for testing. For that purpose and for further update testing we are very happy to open up our offical MysticRunes test server.
The test server will be a place for the community to test new features and to allow the MysticRunes staff team to fix bugs and balance stuff properly.
After a long discussion we came to the conclusion that we will only open the test server to VIP and higher rank users.
Why is that? Well, firstly we want to have a small amount of people testing stuff to have a better overview and to pin point bugs and balancing issues more quickly. Secondly we think that this is one of the only small features we are allowed to give to VIP users and we think that it is a fair feature for the supporters of MysticRunes. Thirdly we don't want everyone to see all the new stuff before its official release.
The server will feature 10x EXP and it will offer a fresh start and might wipe at any time. Thus this is not a replacement for the normal MysticRunes gameplay and just a server for the community to test out new stuff. In the future other updates will also be pushed to the test server before releasing it on the public server. For example the level 40 - 60 region update will be tested on this test server before publishing it.

The IP: play.mysticrunes.net:23222 (1.12 only for now)

Please report all bugs on the forum or send a private discord message to one of the team members.

Sincerely,
Your MysticRunes Team

News & Information / Status Update: Skill System
February 21, 2017, 09:32:31 pm
Because the skill system has been taking very long I want to give you a quick status update.

We have finished designing all skills and are currently working in different teams to finish the system:

The_Real_Scotti: Sound Design
LimeSpice: Particle Design and Execution
Jalau: Implementing the skills into the server

All Warrior, Assassin and Hunter skills have been implemented and are finished.
As of now both LimeSpice and Scott are busy with studying and thus I am waiting for them to return to continue the design part. Implementing the 3 classes has taken us around 3 - 4 weeks which means you can expect the update to be finished quickly when they return.
I won't do nothing until then though, I will continue working on other features. For example there is a lot of code to clean up and optimize/move between the core, database and mysticrunes plugin to allow a more adaptable system for future servers and game modes. Furthermore I will also add new features to the game. Mostly small ones such as settings etc. I finished adding a particle quality setting that will allow players to choose a setting based on their connection speed and pc just now. Lowest setting will show only very close particles and ultra setting will basicly show all ones all over the map. I also fixed a few bugs on our list and will continue working on them too. Bigger features I will maybe start working on are item randomization (vote here: https://mysticrunes.net/forum/index.php?topic=334.0), pets, Guild Castles/Regions and/or some kind of arena pvp and pve (wave) system. I probably forgot many features but who cares. We'll see what the future will bring.

I hope this gave you a small insight into the current development and hopefully we will be able to finish the skill system very soon. The forest is also making great progress and will probably be released along with the skill system featureu level 40 - 60. Silversience is also very busy with studying though.

Sincerely,
Jalau

News & Information / Community Vote: Stat randomization
February 21, 2017, 09:15:40 pm
In forum posts titled with Community Vote we want to know your thoughts and your opinion on a certain feature.

Item Randomization

The feature that I want you to discuss about is the randomization of item stats. What we had in mind was to randomize every stat on an item within a range of ~+-5% of the original stat. This would still allow us to balance items as before but it would allow players to have the same weapon twice with a small change of stats. Basicly each item stat on an item that is dropped or somehow spawned into the game (crafting maybe etc.? Would love to hear your opinion on this especially) is affected by a unique roll.

You could have the chance to have all stats on the item +5% which would make the item the strongest possible version. But you could also have -5%. However a mix would be much more likely. Basicly you could have a more dexterity heavy equipment piece or a more lifesteal heavy piece. Depending on the roll upon drop. We tought of this feature because we had a related system before but it was too hard to balance, too random and it didn't offered the possibility to stick to the basic idea of an item. For example a legendary magma wand will always have fire damage. In the previous system it was just a legendary wand that was randomly generated.
The core goal of reimplementing a similar system would be to allow players to hunt for the same gear over and over again to get a better or more fitting version of the item whilst still enjoying the hunt because each drop is exiting and unique. Furthermore there would be a wider range of items to check before simply purchasing a specific item.

The MysticRunes team would love to receive some feedback and if you vote in the poll provided please state your reason in a reply to this topic.

Sincerely,
Jalau

Recently we have been working on a new skill system, providing more skills and more individuality for each character and class.

In this post I will try to present the new ideas and features that haven't been fully finished yet but are likely to be added in one way or another.

Skill
A skill will still be unlockable by skill points, but it will be upgradable. That means each skill can be upgraded between 2  and 5 times and each upgrade will increase one or more stats of that skill. For example upgrade "I" increases the damage and upgrade "II" increases the damage and the radius of the skill. Upgrade "III" then could decrease the mana cost and so on. Upgrades will also be unlocked by skillpoints. There is no extra skill upgrade tree planned so the upgrades for each skill will follow a linear path. Each skill will probably only cost 1 skill point to be unlocked but we haven't decided yet whether upgrades follow that pattern.

Active skills
Active skills are the ones that for example all current skills ingame belong to. Every skill that needs to be manually casted by the player is considered to be an active skill.

Passive skills
A new feature of the system will be passive skills. These skills feature effects or actions that happen passively without requiring the player to cast the skill. Simple skills could heal the player if he reaches a certain amount of health or they could increase the speed, damage etc.. But there will be more advanced passive skills too. A player can at least equip one passive skill. If we'll add more "slots" for passive skills hasn't been decided yet.

The Skill Tree
The skill tree will feature different columns and it will feature both passive and active skills. Some skills require other skills in the same column to be unlocked and the skilltree will consist of rows. Each row can only be unlocked if the player has already spent a total of x skill points. A ton of new skills are to come and we currently are working on each skill tree up to level 40. An example would be the assassin skill tree:



The column on the right represents the passive skills. The other columns are active skills. The ↓ indicates if the skill below it requires the skill above to be unlocked. The column on the left side shows how many skill points need to be spend to unlock the complete row. Skills not featuring a ↓ can be unlocked as soon as you have spent the required amount of skill points. The number in brackets shows the max upgrade level of that skill.

Skill points
Each level up will grant one skill point. As mentioned above unlocking skills only requires 1 skill point. Skill upgrades might follow that pattern but they might also cost more than 1 skill point. At level 1 you will start off with one skill point.

Implementation
So you are probably wondering how we plan to add this and when we plan to add this. The date of the update cannot be said yet. We are working on it to allow it to be completed as soon as possible. But we want it to be balanced and working and this might take some more time. When the update is rolled out each characters unlocked skills will be resetted and the spent skill points will be set to the new value that is supposed to be owned at the given character level.

The End
I hope you like what we are planning to add in the future and I hope that this allows another insight into our current development.

PS: The new dungeon has been finished and will be released soon after all testing has been done. So stay tuned and excited.

Announcement: Alpha Weekend 04.06 - 05.06

After not updating and developing the server in the background for the past months we have decided to be ready to open it for testing. We are really happy to announce that the server will be open from the 4.06 to at least the 5.06. In this time we hope to find as many bugs as possible and we try to see how the game experience appeals to the players. Because this is only an alpha there will probably be some bugs. Wipes or other major things should not occur but we aren't able to promise it.

It will open on 04.06 at 0:00 am CEST, so in the night from friday to saturday.

We hope to see you on the mysticrunes server and that you are ready for an awesome weekend.

In this new forum post series the team behind mysticrunes tries to explain and showcase new features for those who are unable to watch the videos or want more insight into details.


For more than two months we have been working on a dungeon generator that was introduced in the eighth developer log. In this post I'd like to explain the basics of the system and give you some insight into our plans.

The System
Dungeons will be generated on demand. There is a new option in the game menu that allows you to generate a dungeon. Currently dungeons will generate slowly in the background to allow players to play without experiencing any kind of lag. This takes around 5 - 10 minutes for one dungeon to generate and there can only be one dungeon generating at the same time. In the future we are planning to move the dungeon generator to another server to allow the dungeon to generate much faster. There is a dungeon queue that allows you to reserve a place in the dungeon and once the dungeon has finished generating everyone will receive a notification. When you join a dungeon lobby your location is saved and after the dungeon run has ened you will be ported back to that stored position. The dungeon lobby contains a Merchant, Depot Master, anvils and much more to put on the final touches to your equipment. You will have 30 seconds to spend until the dungeon run will start. Party owners have the possibility to join a dungeon and force all party members to join too, on the other hand party members are unable to join dungeons on their own.

[spoiler=Screenshots]


[/spoiler]

The Dungeons
There will be multiple dungeon types that each has a certain level range and player limit assigned. If your level is too low or too high you won't be able to join or generate the dungeon. Each dungeon can be created in multiple difficulties. Once completed the next difficulty level is unlocked for the characters that participated in the dungeon run and survived until the end. Each difficulty contains special mobs that only spawn in this specific dungeon. They also drop equipment and other items that are unique and won't be findable in other areas of the server. This should be very interesting for people who want a special equipment piece or maybe they need a certain item for crafting or brewing. This results in the dungeon runs always being important and it should be a "must attend" for most of the players.

Rooms
Our aim was to create a system that generates random dungeons that are composed of prebuild rooms. You might ask yourself, why would they want prebuild rooms and not randomly generated once? Well, we have talked many hours about the basics of the dungeon generator and came to the conclusion that completely generated rooms will not offer the same atmosphere as detailed custom build rooms do. Futhermore issues such as missing blocks or spots that are not reachable by either mobs or players will not exist.  Each room contains special events that each differs from the other rooms. Some rooms contain chests, mobs and some even contain breaking floors and exploding walls. Each dungeon contains one spawn room and one boss room. The spawn room contains no mobs or special events. The boss room contains minions and a boss mob that once defeated will trigger the end of the dungeon run.

Future Additions
The next thing we want to add are player based interactions to create traps and rewards that are based on the actions of a player. Puzzle or a simple button, we have many possibilities and we will implement them all in one way or another.

Instanced Dungeons
We are also planning on adding an instanced dungeon system to allow players to play the same dungeon over and over. There will be no random generator and each dungeon will tell a story. These dungeons will be completely prebuild and the boss fights will be much harder and difficult than those in the random generator dungeons.

The End
I hope you liked this new series and the information that was given in this post. Feel free to post any questions or criticism.

Application / Application Format
May 25, 2016, 07:08:58 pm
If you want to take part in our development team, as a builder, coder or something similar, you can apply here using the format shown below.
We don't require a minimum age but we do require you to be self-responsible and also be able to work on your own without getting instructions after you finished a task. Furthermore we want you to be capable of working with a team and to talk with your team about your ideas, tasks and things you've done.
Understanding and hopefully speaking the english or german language is also a part of our requirements. However we don't require you to speak it perfect, as our current team also has no native english member.

The suggested format looks as follows:
A thread named [Position you want to apply for] + your name
An example would be: [Coder] Jalau or [Builder] silversience.

You can also post your application in german but you then please add the tag [German] in front of your thread name.

We need to know the following informations about you:

IGN:

Do you have TS3/Skype/a working mic?

Why do you want to join us? We want to know why you are choosing us over other options. At least 3 sentences.

Experience. Give us an idea of your previous experience. At least 3 sentences.

Previous work:(Builder) Planet Minecraft projects, youtube videos which can be tracked back to you (proven they are your builds), or pictures where you can prove they are your builds. (Coder) Any coding work where you can prove that it is yours. (Anything other) Any previous work created by you. The rule the more the better always applies.

Timezone:

When are you online the most:

How many hours a week will you be able to work with/for us?

Do you agree that anything you build/create/code for our server belongs to our server alone, and that by giving it to us you are giving its ownership to us?

Anything else you want to add?

*Applicatants for the position of a mod or similar don't need to answer those questions.
