News / Patch v43
« on: October 11, 2018, 10:59:23 pm »
Hi guys, a few random adjustments for you. We have the next few patches planned out and will be delivering some regular updates for the rest of the year. Enjoy!

Items
  • Jumping Squirrel added back to Pet Master Ellan.
  • Ascended Menguu Relic added to marketplace for 20 Jaden.
  • Chroma Lotto added to Jordy NPC in Sunstream - Rewards range from 300 Chroma Beads to 300,000! Chroma Bead rewards are tradeable. Good luck!
  • Rayan BG Lumen armor fixed.
  • Bank Note Exchange has returned
  • The option to purchase Bank Notes has been renamed to Buy Bank Notes from Bank Note Exchange.
  • You can now stack many items to 30k!
  • Esper Gems now stack to 100.
  • We've made Soul Ash and Ice Orb of Vastness tradeable.
  • Most packs should open quicker.


Drops
Multiple areas have had their drops completely refactored:
  • MTH-Jadeon has been modified to have increased drop rates for esper related items, but you'll also find very rare items dropping there such as Monkey Coins, Ice Orbs, and Heaven Dragon Seal.
  • Inferna has had the drops rewritten to add in several new items and with improved logic that will result in a better grinding experience. We've also added some very valuable items into the drop list, but at a very low chance. Who will be the lucky one to pick up a Flux Sigil?
  • CP has had a complete recalibration on the drop rates. The mobs drop useful items, the bosses have even better chances, and Linaska has a better chance of appearing at the end of a CP. Further, the quest "A Dark Future" has been modified to give a better sigil shard than previously possible. The other quests for completing CP, the quests for talking to NPCs, etc, have all had increased rewards. So take your time and enjoy CP! Don't forget about the sidequests.

Quests, Events, NPCs
  • Custom NPCs are back.
  • Custom Auction is back! It might take a few days to kick in, but it is back.
  • Quiz Bowl is now in English.
  • Courage has been removed from requirements for BG gears.
  • Experience gained from monsters in Citadel has been increased.
  • The quest Blessing of the Dragon has been changed to Blessing of the Monkey, and now instead of rewarding a Coldmoon Essence it will reward you with 5 Monkey Coins, but it also has a chance of rewarding you with 1 Diamond and a small chance of rewarding you with a Flux Sigil Shard.
  • Purple spam fixed.
  • Sanctuary Jadescroll has been removed and replaced with some Monkey Coins for now.

More updates coming soon.

News / Patch v42 - Hydran T2, Assimilation, ...
« on: September 16, 2018, 12:36:16 pm »
More stuff fixed.

End.


Just kidding.

Hydran Tier 2 is fixed.
Lots of stuff is fixed that we didn't know was broken and was never reported so we can't tell you exactly what was fixed. lol
Upgrading some skyblades is fixed, realizing as I wrote this that I missed some. We'll probably do a quick follow-up patch tonight.
Assimilation issues are fixed.
Sigil shard exchange is back, I think
Banana Peel NPC is fixed.
Flux Sigil 4-pack is fixed.
Some items that were not tradeable since the Hydran patch are now tradeable again.
Some stacks were too low, those are fixed.

Definitely missed stuff that's fixed and I forgot is fixed.

Chinese spam is gone, but some other stuff is back to Chinese. This is temporary while we wait for an improved aipolicy editor to release. Hopefully this month. We might change it again, idk yet. We can change it back if you prefer the purple spam.

Talisman back in marketplace.
Provisions back in marketplace.

Lots of other stuff that I forgot about. Just look for issues and report them as you see them. We're planning to push another patch later tonight with a whole slew of small edits to improve various PvE elements of the game.

Oh and don't forget to enter the Ultimate Raffle on forums.

News / Patch v35
« on: September 03, 2018, 06:55:38 pm »
Oh look, we did 2 patches in 3 days. It's unicorn season.

You know, lots of stuff was changed. I forgot some of it, but hey, you'll tell me if something is wrong, right? Of course you might.

Custom NPCs are back. Yeah, they aren't perfect. Another patch will come soon and will make it better.

Drop rates are increased. Maybe not as high as they should be, we'll decide that after we do another modification to drop lists.

Perfect Tawen Gems don't work. No idea why, yet, but we'll find out. And when we know, we'll fix it. Until then, use the normal ones.

Hydran Esper Gem doesn't work. I don't know why, yet, but we'll find out. And when we know, we'll fix it. Like other stuff.

Keep reporting stuff. Slack remains the best place to do so.

Don't like the drops? Buy yourself that item... What was it called? I forget the name. Maybe someone in world chat knows. Kill 18 of those mobs in Kunlun, forget what they're called, and open an Elysium Vessel. It has pretty contents.


Another patch coming real, real, soon. More fixes, let me know what you think I should fix first.

News / Banana Shop
« on: July 26, 2018, 06:01:44 am »
The Banana Shop has been temporarily disabled for an update. We'll update this post when it's back live.

Thank you for your understanding.

The Banana Shop is live again. You will not see the changes yet, but there will be more lottos available when the patch has been completed. Sales will also appear more often than before.

There will be more changes to the Banana Shop around the time that the Hydran patch is released.

News / Registration problem - resolved
« on: May 01, 2018, 03:40:31 am »
We have resolved the registration issue.

I apologize for the late post, I'm very sick right now.

There was a technical issue affecting all outgoing emails and that prevented our registrations from completing and sending out activation emails. The error has now been resolved and protections have been put in place to prevent it from happening again. This was a very unusual error and likely won't happen again.

Thank you for your patience.

We're currently experiencing issues with registrations.

We do not have an ETA on when this will be resolved but we are actively looking for a resolution.

We will post when it has been resolved.

Thank you for your understanding and patience.

News / Recent Server Outages
« on: March 20, 2018, 10:36:29 am »
We had ongoing server outages for a few months, or longer. After months of monitoring the issue, we determined the issue must be hardware-related.

Our provider recently contacted us and let us know that they had replaced the CPU cooling system. This is likely what was causing these outages. As the server would overheat and automatically restart.

As rare issues like these pop-up, we learn from them and improve. Every year we have less downtime than the last year.

Hopefully, this issue has been fixed. However, we already did rent a replacement server anyway. So, when we do the Hydran patch, there will likely be a migration to a new server along with it.

We wouldn't be spinning up a 3rd server if we weren't that close. Still can't give a date, but we're almost there. You'll get a date when we add the new landing page with that information.

Events / Santa Claus is coming to Sunstream!
« on: December 18, 2017, 06:12:57 pm »
We all have a Child within us that gets excited when Christmas is around the corner and this is mainly due to gifting!
Here at MD we would love to give you an opportunity to unleash that inner child.


All you have to do is write a letter to Monkey Santa.

Tell us in the form of an actual letter what would you like to get in Christmas mail from your Monkey Santa, and why. A new skyblade? A mount you have always wanted to get? Maybe a pet that made you giggle every time you saw it? Don't be too greedy with your wishes, Santa's miracles are limited.

Please include your IGN in your letter! And have fun with it, make sure it's like what you would actually write in a letter to Santa.

The Monkey Santa is very generous. Who knows what he has in his bag of tricks?

Let's get into the Christmas Spirit together. We hope you all have a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Happy New Year.

P.S. While Monkey Santa was visiting Sunstream today, Kirito asked for x4 votes for everyone. Somehow, Monkey Santa was able to manipulate the rewards system to award 4x more Jaden right up into the new year! Enjoy!

News / Email issues and other news
« on: November 18, 2017, 12:47:57 pm »
There was an issue with our email server that affected all users. This prevented users from registering new accounts and resetting passwords. This has been resolved. You can now register new accounts and reset passwords as needed.

Please submit a ticket at http://monkeydynasty.org/support if you need more assistance.

Big changes coming before the year ends, as we prepare for our 5-year anniversary in February. No wipes, same devs, and continued development.

2x donations returning soon!

Hydran patch also coming soon, with new customs and much more!!

Sell / Real $$$ transactions
« on: October 20, 2016, 01:48:06 pm »
For obvious reasons, this is against our rules.

Further, it's not a very smart thing to do. You'll probably be scammed.

Do not post requests or offers for external trades. This is meant for in-game transactions.

If you post to sell your bananas, jadens, items or anything else for $$$, then your bananas will be wiped and your account will be banned. No warnings. This is your only warning.

We may add a feature in the future that will support transactions like these, but until we can log, moderate, and profit off of it. It will not be allowed.

Polls / Should "sex change" return?
« on: October 10, 2016, 02:41:50 am »
We used to offer an item known as "sex change". This item would allow you to change a character from make to female or vice versa. It was also included with a full change,

First of all, the goal of this option was to offer a workaround to offer same-sex marriage.

Second. This option was removed because people were using it to exploit fashion specific skills that are based on sex. This is also the main reason players want it to return.

Finally. We removed this because some players thought that it was unfair that other players could basically purchase extra fashion skills. The ultimate result of this option. We agreed that this was an exploit and therefore should be removed. However, we were unable to find a way to remove these skills from users who had already obtained them. So....

We want to ask you guys what you think about this feature returning? Let us know by voting in the above poll. Review the FAQs below for more information.


Some questions people will have.

Will it cost bananas ?
Yes. It definitely will. Most likely 500 bananas. Bananas are much easier to obtain free now than they were before.

Can you remove the skills from players that have already exploited this bug?
No, we can't. The only other option is to accept that some players will have a few extra skills.

Will you ban the users that previously exploited this bug?
No. This was our fault and we don't believe players should suffer due to unintended consequences.

Will you give away these changes for free?
No. We don't see any reason to do this. Anyone who has it has had to pay for it.

Will you remove "sex change" again?
No. If the community votes to reinstate this option then it will be permanently  readded.


Will you be able to buy "sex change" for other accounts?
Yes. Like with any gear change or faction change you will be able to purchase for another user.

Can you use free bananas or banana peels to purchase "sex change"?
Yes. You certainly can.

Is this an exploit?
Technically, yes. It is. An exploit is anything being used in a way that is unintended by the developers. So, yes. it is an exploit by definition. However, I believe that the best solution to this is to just readd it and make it easier to obtain. The "cat is out of the bag" so to speak, and I believe that the only solution is to allow all players the option to obtain these skills.

Let me know what you think.

We'll be working hard to keep up on tickets much better.


In other news, we have our testing server up and operational now. We'll be preparing a small patch for this weekend.

News / Database repair
« on: September 21, 2016, 11:02:25 am »
Last night we had to take down the server for a short time to repair the database. There was a pretty significant issue that had caused the database to "fork". Normally, this would cause a rollback or wipe for most servers, but we have a unicorn.

Tcholok was able to repair the database, and as far as we know everything is working correctly now.

Today we're going to be watching and waiting for any more issues. Please be quick to report them. We want to get on with more development! We have much more in store for you.

I know I've been pretty quiet lately. I'm sorry, you deserve better from me too. I did take some time to reflect, as well as I had a vacation. I also got hacked. My PC was hacked and my entire password list was leaked. It caused me some stress, and I now use a password manager for all of my passwords. Even stuff I don't care about has extremely secure protection, now. I am also using 2FA on most of my accounts, and hopefully, eventually will be using it for all of them.

The goal now is to get back to the regular development some old players know and love. We know MD has a great community that is excited to see what new and exciting features we will implement in the future.

We really can't stress enough, your patience with us has been fantastic. Through all of the ups and downs, there is a large group of you that really stood by us. We really appreciate it.

Changes, tickets, unbans, bans, and other administrative tasks are next up. A small patch will come out within a day after I have a test server, and that patch will have some of your suggestions. Please, submit your suggestions on the forums, via the ticket system, or even make suggestions on this post.  I will post when the test server is up.

We're also looking for staff! Active users with in-game experience are required. Slack is a requirement. www.slack.com to download.  Don't even apply if you can't/won't join Slack with us. Staff are our eyes and ears in-game, they help with things that include testing new features and enforcing rules. You have to be a GS before you can be a GM, but there are GM positions open!

We may open Slack to all users, we'll let you know more about that soon.

Thanks for reading. Let's bring MD back to #1 again.

News / Patch update
« on: February 27, 2016, 10:31:18 pm »
It has almost been 20 days! Time flies.

My math was off when I have the initial time, but that's fine. Either way, it's not going to be done in the 20 days I had posted. Although it will be right away, I'll post more about it soon. I know I keep saying that, but the screenshots haven't been taken yet, and it's 10 PM. They certainly won't be tonight either.

The delays are entirely attributed to the release of newer content that potentially changes the direction of the patch. I should be testing this tomorrow or Monday, and once the new content is tested I will update you further.

Simply put, this could result in working Psychea and Kytos ascension. So I don't really care how I look, or what people think about my promises and deadlines. I am testing this. All of the work that has been done on the patch so far can be easily transferred to the newer content if it works - this is part of what we have been working on. A streamlined process to move content from release to release.

Either way the patch will not include Hydran, unless some magical release happens in the next few days. Bottom line, the custom work that was the number 1 priority was shelved when we got our hands on this newer content. Our friend claims that this newer content includes both Psychea and Kytos ascension.

As you know, I have to wait for Tcholok to be able to finish a lot of the work I am doing, and his time is extremely limited. Please bare with us as we figure it all out. If this new content is not what we have been told, then we will immediately go back to completing the patch. Either way, we need to test some more new content that got added, we are completely finished our path reversal, and debugging our own client.


I'd like to point out, I was wrong when I said a year. It's actually only been 8 months since our last patch. We stopped patching out small patches because it was slowing me down too much on the bigger job, which at the time wasn't getting as much attention. Anyone who says it has been a year is rounding up by 33%, furthermore, in that time I have had much less time, as you all knew I would, due to the birth of my son. As he grows older I have more time free to be able to focus on my work, but over the past 8 months there have been many days where I haven't been able to do anything aside from daily maintenance and/or faction changes.


Another thing, I was supposed to do some unbans this week. That was delayed as well, also due to this new release. I am still planning on doing a large amount of unbans in the very near future, possibly even before the patch is released, but it depends on the time I have available. For example, there are currently 20 pending changes, at least 10 of which I will do when I wake up tomorrow, and there are about 60 pending unban tickets, give or take. Plus the regular 3 - 5 per day of various issues that need to be addressed. Managing staff, databases, servers, etc. This all takes time and effort away from the patch. My time is extremely limited, even if I spend no time at all on personal things like enjoying a video game or watching TV. So, unfortunately unbans got totally shelved for this week. I will try and get to them next week, but it entirely depends on the development work that needs to be done.

If you have any questions please post them in this thread, I'll try and monitor it and get back to you as I can.
