    ROFL

    Cancelled my account early this week and, after seeing that update message, I'm damn glad I did...

    This is from last week:
    April 29 2011

    Hello Xsyon citizens!

    The launcher and a the next client and server update are ready, however we're going to continue testing throughout the weekend and hold off on patching this out until I've arrived in Moscow.
    This is from Today:
    We are still testing and making some changes to our current build before we patch out the improved launcher and next update.
    I understand a small development team...I understand there are some challenges, but playing that card is getting old, especially with AAA Subscription prices starting up...
    Keeping my active accounts (and my support) around would have been as simple as delaying charging subscriptions until your first major content patch (and at least SOME of what's been promised is in)...If the company, at this point, needs the money THAT badly, then it's in bigger trouble than I thought...
    Hell, whether or not you like FFXIV, at least Square-Enix understands that their product isn't worth $15.00 a month yet (or, even better, they know they're keeping an active and interested playerbase by not charging them for it until it's ready)
    Perhaps I should be understanding and accept that they found something wrong with the ready to go launcher and client over the weekend...but I'm just too frustrated to keep hanging around waiting for something solid to happen.

    Best of luck to those waiting around for the miracle patch(s)

    Ya i hear you, this game is a joke if thats what you want to call it, "game".
    It was over amonth ago they said they were going to start implementing game features and were going to stop working on fixes because it is stable. This dev team is just one lie after another, and like you said if they wernt charging it would be somewhat acceptable, but they are. I'm just gonna flush 15$ down the toilet every month it will be more enjoyable, than this "game" or whatever you want to call it.

    They have been working on fixes.

    They have been working on the patcher mainly. Removing causes of time outs, reducing packet sizes etc etc.

    They have also been reworking tools tips and decay.

    Myself and a few others Have been testing both of these features. We had found a few bugs in the the tool tips that they have to sort out.

    I was addressing Laurik's concerns.

    What really bothers me is how not even 50% of the features on the feature page are implemented and the pictures in the gallery show a more completed game than what is in game currently.

    It shows at least 10 items that aren't in game now, that probably should be. Like the leather rack, benches, tables, boxes, the drum, many cool things that aren't in game now

    I think a lot more of the features need to be added to the "As Xsyon evolves, more features will come" list at the bottom of the features page.

    That features page has no business existing in the first place, its incredibly deceptive advertising. They should just do a short write-up, like an about type thing and leave it at that rather than listing off features that aren't in the game and likely never will be, at least not in the foreseeable future. Either that or be honest with the list (would be a very short list......)

    Bugs in tool tips should be a VERY low priority at this point.

    I completely agree. It IS false advertising, and if they don't hear from a lawyer about it, they are lucky.

    I'm sure glad I kept my sub going because they only updated like a few days later with all this!

    Hello Xsyon citizens!

    Please make sure to install using the latest installer. This install should remove your old data files and do reinstall the new compressed versions. The download servers, game server and client have all been updated.

    This update includes:

    Updated Installer

    The installer is prepared for future updates to automatically remove files that need to be updated if necessary. This will allow you to update easilly to new installers without doing a full reinstall.

    Updated Patcher

    The patcher uses compressed files and the total download has been reduced to less than 50% of the original size.

    The patcher allows you to connect to the main server or the test server, using a test client, when available. We will post when the test server is open for public tests. This will help us check out and balance some of the upcoming changes with combat and agriculture before patching the changes to the main server.

    -Issues causing potential time outs or disconnects have been fixed.
    -The patch order for removing, adding and modifying files has been rearranged to reduce total patching time.
    -The patcher now displays download speed.
    -The patcher should now display progress better through all steps of the patching process.

    Game Update

    This is primarily a creature update with additional data and systems prepared for the near future.

    -Creatures age, grow and breed.
    -Creatures hide when threatened and hibernate depending on the season.
    -Creature AI and pathfinding has been further improved.
    -All current animals are in game.
    -Item Tooltips are back on. Tooltips have been optimized to use client side caching.
    -Problems with creatures or players getting out of bounds causing the server to crash have been fixed.
    -Collision detection has been revised for speed.
    -Minor bugs with some armor parts and recipes have been fixed.

    In Progress:

    -Crafted object decay.
    -Crafted object additional properties and bonuses.
    -Crafted object repair.
    -Crafted object and building dismantling.
    -Revised tree data storage system to prepare for tree planting and farming.
    -Starting the full combat system revision. This will be made available on the test server as soon as possible.

    Enjoy!

    My guild would like to return one day. but this just shows that I made the correct decision of leaving xyson when we did over a month ago. the funny thing is all our belongs are still nice and secure. FAIL Hahahaha

    Time what is going to kill this game.
    It is taking way to long to implement little changes... the big stuff needs to start happening and worry about roken shit afterwards.. people are going to grow more and more frustraited and bored of the lack of evolution.. something that was supposed to be a big factor in this game.
