Relaunch
« on: September 17, 2016, 02:43:00 pm »
TLDR
  • This is a giant update.
  • There's no wipe, you keep your characters and items.
  • We're back to active development and community building.
  • Now there's a wiki (work in progress) - http://wiki.monkeydynasty.org
  • You don't need to do anything, just let your updater update you to the new client.

Preface
Before the patch notes, a quick preface.

We know you have been waiting for a lot of these changes for a very long time. You deserved better from us, and from me especially over the past two years. I haven’t been focused on this at all, and that’s not fair to all of you. It’s no surprise most of the staff also lost interest and motivation.

As many of you have heard, we’re trying to turn that lack of effort and focus around. For the past 3 months, Perryl, Kaz, and myself have been working concertedly on bringing you the quality experience you had come to expect (and since forgotten) with the original Jade Monkey and Monkey Dynasty servers. I’d like to especially thank Kaz/Renya for her tireless work on all of the new content, the wiki, and her tremendous patience and good spirits. I'd also like to thank all of the testers and game sages who have provided fantastic support and feedback throughout this process. I will mention youu all specifically in final patch notes!

We’ve put our heads together to fix most of the outstanding issues and features that were not working and we’ve added a ton of new content. We’ve got a brand new set of hardware located in Central/Western Europe to provide you with better connectivity and a better gaming experience.

Finally, all of your characters and items are still here. This is not a wipe, but rather a revitalization of what was once a great server and community. We’re back to dedicated development, rebuilding the staff, and providing a great experience for everyone.

There’s a lot more that will be coming over the next weeks and months, but for now, we’re pleased to announce the first round of changes.

All you have to do is let the patcher update your client, then play. Its a big update and everyone is downloading it, so it may take a while.

Patch Notes
  • Improved Client - Optimized graphics and performance give you a better looking game using less resources.
  • Elysium - Elysium is back working including regular boss spawning, all out pvp and porting back.

     
     
  • Territory Wars - Territory Wars are fully working. The weekly battle for dominance over the server’s territories is back. Get your alliance mates together and fight for your place on the map!
  • Fort - Fort is back and fully functioning. Take hold of it and set your Marshals statue in Sunstream for all to see.
  • Alliance Bases - Fully working Alliance Bases - you’re now able to build a headquarters for your alliance, with your alliance mates. Complete with building up your city, daily quests and an alliance auction. Alliance Masters have the power to trigger events for their alliances.

     
  • Crystal Rift
  • Brand new Wiki - Brand new Wiki detailing many features and custom features. We have begun creating a full md-wiki for our community to enjoy. We’ve added all custom mounts, skyblades and pets, as well as some guides for you. We encourage players to contribute and good contributions will be rewarded. This should be a source of information, guides and all possible info.

    Check it out - http://wiki.monkeydynasty.org

  • 1000+ new icons - We have refreshed the whole custom content in the game, unified their looks, so no more missing icons on your items.  We have also added small convenient changes to make looking for items easier
    • Tradeable and non-tradeable Monkey Coin Packs have different colors
    • Sigil shards are the same color as the sigils they create
    • Higher sigils have appropriate refine color
  • New auction rewards -  have customized the daily auction rewards, making them a little more desireable hopefully. The rewards include several exclusive mounts, skyblades and fashion sets, as well as Banana shop items.
  • New fashions - Over 45 new custom fashions
  • New mounts - Many new mounts, most of which were requested by you, the community.
  • New skyblades
  • Etherborn Feather Exchange - Etherborn Feather Exchange - JD Dancing Youth Gift Pack, with custom rewards
  • New BG Maps - 3 new battleground maps available
  • Fixed Athan Brocade Chest in Jaden Shop
  • Added Everlasting Herb to Jaden Shop
  • ... and a whole lot more

Thank you All for the hard work you guys put into this update. I had quit a couple of years ago due to being just to busy with Life. Now i have some free time once again and was pretty shocked when i seen the "Re-Launch" tbh someone from another server mentioned it!
So, i am glad they did!! See ya ingame :)

After a fight to download the client, then a fight to get it to update, then a fight to get it to go online (server was down for a bit, it turns out) I finally logged in! Holy crap, it works!!!!!  :D

And it looks like the DC & lag thing is really gone: ran two clients botting/grinding/farming overnight.

I'm necessarily opposed to this, but I would like to poll the community to determine if they would like it first. With so many other things coming, this is unlikely to be reviewed until next Spring. That said, if we heard a lot of demand for it. That could change.
