True, creating the base model is easy, but what I meant was, that getting it working properly (animations mainly), is the part that is probably going to take ages. You have to make your own custom idle, walking, death, skills, etc. animations and so forth. And these cant really be copied over from old models as (I assume) the new model would be completely different and if it had any copied animations, it would probably look rather bad.

Anyhow, good luck with it if you ever decide to add custom pets.

We have many custom pets. Haven't you seen them?

News / Registration problem - resolved

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.

Ingame / Re: sovereign order
« on: April 24, 2018, 12:10:28 pm »
is it possible to add sovereign order tier 2-5 to the monkey npc?
not because im to lazy doing tier quest but because i cant finish the quest when every time i click Special Ops Agent, my game always crass/ctd
i assume it was part of the base game file since this problem with etherkin patch do exist on other server too.

Next patch is different files, so, it should work then.

We're not going to add tier skips to a NPC, there are other servers that do that stuff.

Hello, i have an issue with one of my old accounts.... bucifer is account name. I can log the account in the web, but cannot log in game and get the "wrong username or password" error message.

If anyone can investigate, it will be greatly appreciated.

Submit a ticket for assistance with this issue.

I think it will be quite hard to find a character model for those... cant remember seeing any mermaid characters in jd ever. If the base model doesnt exist, I dont believe the admins/staff would bother creating such a model, let alone a model that would work in md.

The idea of requesting custom pets is good though. Perhaps the staff could implement such a feature and make it an event or something? and the winner's idea gets made into a real pet?
This way you get free work done (ideas, sketches, etc) and could potentially gain money and content through this.

If it existed in PW, FW, or other games using similar models, it's possible to rework them for JD.

Kaz did that, I know a bit about it, but someone who knows a bit about 3d modeling can figure it out pretty easily, I think.

The best way is to attack the monsters for your level and complete your daily quests.

You can also buy items from the shop and sell them, or sell your jaden.

hydran patch in 2020
im calling it

Haha, I've joked that before. Unlikely it will go that way, but who knows, my surgery tomorrow could go absolutely the worst case and I could die. So, there's that. lol

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.

Etherkin patch won't be random. You will see a new landing page when it's done, and there will be a countdown.

That said, done is never done and there will be things to change. Our intent, is to get to weekly or bi-weekly patches after that.

It's happening again and again. The fact that that happens is not the most important thing. But why nobody explain us what's going on?

We did and do.

Usually, we would post on the news page but everything has gone to shit since any time I have had to focus on anything server-related has been dedicated to Hydran patch or other forms of general upkeep.

We did explain it in Slack, though.

We thought it was a hardware issue, so we've rented a new server to replace it. That said, our provider let us know they just replaced some hardware on this server. So maybe it'll be fixed now? idk.

« on: March 20, 2018, 10:27:07 am »
i've got 4 characters in total and the only one that's making my game crash is my Incense Mage (alh). Whenever I try to get into the game with it, an error pops up saying "Monkeydynasty has stopped working".
Probably it only needs to be unstucked from wherever I left him the last time.
Please hellllllllllp :-[

Please submit a ticket and I'll look into it as soon as possible.

General Discussion / Re: When will class change be ready again
« on: March 20, 2018, 10:26:24 am »
New patch is expected to come in March. Let's hope that everything works out!

Trying, not to throw Tcholok under the bus but I'm waiting for him to finish setting up the new server!

He has a significantly more important job, sorry, and he's been busy with other priorities. Today, he told me he will try and have it ready by the end of this week. So, yes, let's hope everything works out.

Class changes will return soon after the Hydran patch.

I didn't mind the server, but how long has it been since you said the patch was coming? Havent seen any GMs log, admins, nothing. Server has dropped to an all time low. Is there actually going to be a patch, or is it better to just lose the hope?

Well, being 100% honest. There is a combination of issues that have resulted in a slower to complete patch. Some of it is motivation, some is just being busy, some is a lack of manpower, and there are other issues. I don't care to complain or anything, but I haven't been able to put as much time towards this as I would like to and we have had limited assistance with testing the patch.

I don't think you should lose hope. I am still here and I don't intend on seeing the server close. Neither does Tcholok, in fact, the issue has been more with me than him. I have been a little more busy this summer than originally planned. I have caught up on most things and am able to put much more effort into the server. Today, we confirmed that TW is fully working and one of the new instances. We will be posting some teasers soon.

While things have been delayed, we're not shutting down. We have no intention of stopping this project. In fact, we're in the process of testing the Hydran patch which will be applied very soon. I can't give a concrete time for release, but I can say that we're definitely patching it and most of the work has been completed.

I'd like to point out this post.

Motivation was a huge issue in Sept. of last year.  I was near-broke, in debt, stressed out, etc.

Soon after, crypto really took off. I paid off all of my debts, haven't been broke since, and have much less stress.

However, during the time that I was struggling to be the core in-game developer of this server, so much stuff built up that it took months to catch up, and we still haven't been able to.

In my opinion, this patch definitely could have been out by September if it had been handled by me when I first got into it, but I couldn't find my groove.

Being active in forums, in game, working on the server, doing social media, and everything else that goes with it. It's really just too much for one person.

That all being said. I am still committed to pushing this Hydran patch out. We really are working on it, but not anywhere near as much as we, read I, should.

I just got back from a vacation. Literally, my first real vacation ever. Visiting a city, being a tourist, not staying with family or something. I was able to take my kids to all of the places my parents never took me when I was a kid, in the city I grew up in. We were able to eat at some of the same places my parents used to take me too.

I have a surgery on Friday.

My life will always get in the way of development. I can't help that without hiring another developer and we don't even make enough to pay for the server.

We've been paying out of pocket for the server for nearly a year. We in this sentence means Tcholok.

I don't want to make any promises because I genuinely don't know what will happen over the next couple of weeks, but we aren't spinning up a new server for it for nothing. lol. We're not intentionally trying to pay for 3 servers when only one is actually being played on. Right?
