  1. Developer Update 2018.10.01

    Hello Xsyon Citizens!

    Sorry for the silence this past month. I had some personal issues to deal with but am back in full swing now.

    As my main work system was starting to fail I've upgraded to a new system. In doing so I am upgrading all software that I use to develop Xsyon. In addition I am upgrading all systems that the Xsyon servers use. This includes the database and libraries that Xsyon relies on and it's taking a while!

    Once everything is upgraded we ...

  2. Developer Update 2018.08.27

    Hello Xsyon Citizens!

    Just a quick update for today. This week the server host company needs to run some maintenance and upgrades on the servers. The servers will be down briefly during these upgrades and I will announce down time in game with a 30 minute warning.

    I am wrapping up a few more features for the upcoming pet system and plan to resume public tests next Monday.

    Enjoy!

    I will be uploading files for upcoming patches this week (so if you notice patches that's what's going on!)

    The Test Server will also be open to the public but I am not quite ready for feedback as I will be turning upcoming changes on and off while running specific tests with assistance from the Guide Team.

    Once I'm ready for public feedback I will set up feedback requests in the Developer Zone forum section.

    Also, maintenance ...

  5. Developer Update 2018.05.28

    Hello Xsyon Citizens!

    I apologize for the silence this month. I'm out of the country due to family reasons and am returning home tomorrow (after 30 hours of travel). I've continued daily work and progress on the upcoming new creature AI and features and things are looking good.

    I am currently running timed tests on a closed Test Server. The new AI system can handle 15,000 creatures at 20 updates per second. In contrast, the current live AI runs creatures in combat at 10 ...
