  1. Developer Update 11.21.2015

    Hello Xsyon Citizens!

    The Peace Server has been updated with a potential final fix for the server lockups that have been occurring from time to time (especially this past week). The War Server will be updated during the next maintenance.

    For a long time, the server has been locking up roughly once a month. Although with each lock up I would obtain additional clues to the problem, it's been very difficult for me to locate the exact cause.

    With the recent increased ...

  2. Developer Update 11.18.2015

    Hello Xsyon Citizens!

    The Test Server is open to the public to test out optimizations to object loading functions.

    Recently players have alerted me to increased loading times and lag during zone crossings (again) due to the amount of construction going on in game. I've spent the past several days working non stop on optimizations to speed up loading and better manage in game objects.

  3. Developer Update 11.16.2015

    Hello Xsyon Citizens!

    Just a heads up for today. I'm going to run some very specific data loading tests on the Test Server with the assistance of the Guide Team over the next few days.

    During this time, data on the Test Server will be strange (for example, all objects will appear as floors). For players that like to join in on the Test Server, you can just ignore the strange things you'll see until I post again calling for specific public tests.

    Thanks!

    I decided to wrap up the Welcome Station as it was ...

  5. Developer Update 10.05.2015

    Hello Xsyon Citizens!

    The Test Server is open for the first round of public feedback on the revised creature AI system in progress.

    The system has been heavily optimized with a lot of old, unnecessary code stripped out. This allows for more frequent updates which should result in better motion, synchronization and ultimately, combat. The revised system is much easier to tweak and adjust based on variables.

    I will be enabling and disabling functions of the revised ...
