    Hello Xsyon Citizens!

    Xsyon is on sale (50% off) for Spring through next Monday! Invite your friends and grow your tribes!

    I updated the servers last night with database changes and more preparations for upcoming features. This should be the final patch with optimizations, preparations and crash fixes before we start testing upcoming features by the end of this month. I may have one more quick patch before then.

  2. 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 ...

  3. Developer Update 2018.10.01

    Hello Xsyon Citizens!

    Hello Xsyon Citizens!

    I've completed migrating and upgrading the server to use the latest versions of dependent software and libraries (primarily MySQL and DirectX). This was a grueling task as the old code relied on intermediate libraries that I had to remove or rewrite.

    I will run specific tests to make sure everything is in working order for the next few days. If everything checks out we'll return to public testing of pets, mounts and other upcoming features!

  5. Systems Upgrade Patch March 18th!

    Hello Xsyon Citizens!

    I will be patching an update this coming Monday, March 18th starting at 9:00 AM PST.

    This is the final preparatory patch for the upcoming creature updates.

    The servers will be down for several hours during this patch as it requires an update to the database system and software that Xsyon depends upon.

    I will run performance tests on this patch for a week and fix any reported issues. If all looks good, the first creature update ...
