This one is my favorite part afterall, going to show the players what I have been working in the last days, and hope you all like it! But before I start, I would like to tell you that soon I am going to college and will have less time to make big updates like these last ones, but will try to continue updating small fixes constantly, I hope you understand if I disappear for weeks and all, I think that studying digital games may take shitload of my time ... But I hope everything does fine and I can continue updating PWO as I have been doing since the last 6 years, btw, Felix Wind is going to be promoted to co-owner to take care of the things while I am out, so now lets talk about the good things, the news!
First, this update's tittle is gameplay review, I know I have been doing those updates since a long time, but this one isn't about changing, but increasing the gameplay quallity, mostly bugfixes. Alot of bugs have been fixed and improved the game to reduce lags, hope it works in full server, (it works fine at the test server), and its also about some items update, so the list:Furniture system:
Well most of you know that the first digits updates means new systems, and the decimals shows increases on details of that systems. Basically the 6.0 comes with 68 new furnitures and items but more can be added. The furniture system is a customizable housing interiors, and most of the furnitures have a function, like storing diffrent kind of objects, healing, lab stuffs, home computers and TVs, its up to make the gameplay a bit more RPish, and not always the same boring towns as we are used to. New Housing system:
The old one felt so OOCish, and I personally hate that invite system, so I decided to remake, and made a better and easier housing system to make more houses, so it won't take forever to add new houses, at the 6.0 comes with 26 houses working, more are to be added in the next fixes and decimals updates, so calm down, the new housing system works this way: You buy a house, you get a key, with this key you can close and open your house, so you decide if ppl will be able to get in or not, and you can give your key to someone else, it means this house is gonna be someones else... (the property will keep in your name, but the true is, you won't have acess to the key so, blah, you shouldn't considere that house yours). And with this new housing system you can customize your home, placing furnitures that only you can pick up, and customize your home as you want. New Study Books system:
Well, the old study book was completally bugged as everyone knows, and thats bad since book reading is the most used feature for new players, and that used to bring a bad reputation to the game *nods*, so I remade it, now its alot better with less bugs, and it also won't let you bored, since the new book reading is automatic and don't causes server lags, (atleast thats the theory, I hope it works, worked at the tests) And reading books gives a decent amount of trainer exp, but again isn't the only or main method to get trainer level.New Pokemons Artificial Inteligence:
Well, the old AI was shitty, everyone knows, so I remade it too, I know the new one isn't perfect but its infact alot better then the old ones, the pokemons are alot smarter and indeed chase for the enemy instead of moving 1,2 squares and attacking, and they attack only once the enemy is in range, this AI still have some problems and I will let you find out, but it surelly makes the gameplay alot better and funnier. (I hate making AI, this makes me feel dumb)New Items:
Like, trainer card. Yeah, you can have a sexy trainer card that lists the pokemon you have, your name, a trainer picture, and your IC job, role or whatever you think, this is to improve more RPs, and helps the visual effects too, I hope the job stuffs helps you to get into diffrent roleplays more then "trainer killing everyone".
Other items may comes with the decimals updatesSpeed:
Remade alot of things in the source to make the game faster, also fixed some common bugs. (I think) You will like the new gameplay with this thing, it feels like another game *nod*. xPCreated the Inutaishos Donation Circle:
Read more here: http://z11.invisionfree.com/Pokemon_World_...0#entry22000755
, I suggest people to donate before the update is released, becouse if you update before the update comes you will get the rare boosts and higher chance of having a house avaliable in the first wipe, since the next usage of rare boosts would come at the next update/fix. Exp bar and Levels:
Yes, they are back, removed the mods showing in stats too, so the idea is to help new players, since everytime a new player come and see no level, and no pokemon they feel like theres nothing to do ingame, once they see their exp bar they will enjoy a bit more the gameplay. Also its a fact that playing with the exp bar motivates us to keep playing, I don't know whats that, must be related to human ego. So, this makes the game funnier to play, enjoy.Towns:
Cinnabar is back, yeah whores stop asking for cinnabar, and probably I will be working at fuschia at the decimals, so expect to suddenly see a fuschia working. So basically yet the 6.0 comes just with cinabar.Admin room:
I bet most of you don't know or care about this one, but well, the admins may like, the admin room is now customizable as you want, so each wipe lets have a diffrent room for us to work
*Buys a coke fridge*Time:
With the furnitures functions I have made the watch, and that forced me to sepparate the day into 3 diffrent phases, day, afternoon and night, basically now in PWO is day/night system, but yet in this version the day night will work just to know if the day change is far or close to happen, maybe in the future the day night may affect the spawns! *nods*Pokemon Level Caps:
Well, thats it, head admins can set and gradually change the pokemon level caps, the minimum is 15, and the default cap is 100. (I want everyone to know that I deslike caps. This is becouse of alot of suggestion and etc.)
Remember, each topic may have small updates that increases them, like new items, furnitures, houses, towns, etc. But these informations are so everyone can understand whats coming in...
I hope you like it, and comment! The update will come as soon as we finish the test servers!
