    Peace Server Is Up


  • Architecture Snap Update!

    Hello Xsyon Citizens!

    Iíve patched the latest build with minor changes not including the upcoming graphics update. This build features the architecture snap feature that makes aligning similar construction parts to each other much easier.

    In addition this patch is a preparation for the upcoming graphics update and War System. A lot of the code has been cleaned up with many functions prepared to be compatible with the DirectX 11 changes. These changes should not have any noticeable effects on the game.

    If you do notice any issues with this patch, please report them on the Xsyon forums in the Developer Zone.

    Enjoy!

    Server Move Downtime: June 7 2023 1 PM PST

    Hello everyone!

    Our server host company will be moving the Xsyon servers tomorrow. To accommodate this move, the servers will be shut down at 1 PM PST and will be back up as soon as the move is complete.

    The current time estimate is that the servers should be back up by 8 PM PST. I will post a revised estimate if I receive one.

    Thanks!

    Xsyon Spring Update!

    Hello Xsyon Citizens!

    It's been a few months since my last update and I've been very busy working on the DirectX graphics update. As noted before, this is a full revision of the graphic engine and is the largest single task I've undertaken to the game. It's been a lot of work but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!

    Here's what's been updated since my last announcement:

    - Water rendering (expect for the waves caused by a player in water)
    - Shadow rendering
    - Distant terrain revised
    - Terrain bump mapping

    Xsyon New Year Update 2023!

    Hello Xsyon Citizens!

    I've been quiet lately as I've been absorbed in coding and there's nothing new quite ready for public testing.

    My focus is still upgrading the graphics engine from DirectX 9 to DirectX 11 and then DirectX 12. The update from 9 to 11 has been complex and time consuming while updating from 11 to 12 appears to be more straightforward.

    So far the following graphic elements have been updated:
    - Interface functions (panels, inventory, character creator, chat etc.)
    - Font creation and rendering
    - Sky rendering
