The Official Updates Log

Post by Dabony » 03 Oct 2019, 13:56

I've hashed out the main parts of The Rules, which should now appear under either "Quick links", or at the bar at the top.

Also, I've added the following perks to the perks page, here: https://new-terra.xyz/app.php/perks
  • Land Vehicles
  • Air Vehicles
  • Demolitions
  • Heavy Weapons

I've changed a few things since the last update. Namely, as you all know, we have a new domain: https://new-terra.xyz/

I've retroactively edited every link on the site to fit the new domain, but if you find any broken links, let me know.

Furthermore, we have a fancy new theme! Wooo! I'll try to make sure I have a dark theme for you all within the next week.

Next, I've added a few options for your profile. These are "Character Location" and your "Roster". To edit and access these, go to your user control panel (click your name at the top of the website and there'll be a dropdown option). Then, go to the profile tab. There'll be a few extra options there now that you can fill in. For the character location, "The Void" simply means your character doesn't exist yet, or that they're dead. For the roster link, go to the Galactic Roster forum and copy the link of your character's thread, then fill that in the box. It's very useful as it allows members to quickly see and access each other's character sheets.

I've done a few things recently, namely:
>Added a dark theme
>Added to the lore pages
>Added to the magic/racial traits pages
>Made purchase logs (more info on them will come when I do progression)
>Added spaces in your postbit for roster/purchase log links (and gone through and manually sorted those links out for everyone)
>Added a mention system.
>Added points and stuff.

Edit: Basically I did a lot. And I'm kinda tired so I'm not gonna formalise it this time.

I made two new themes New_Terra_Data (Dark Blue and Blue) and New_Terra_Space (Dark Blue and Purple). The latter is work in progress. Both are dark themes, and you can switch to them under the "Board Preferences" tab in the user control panel.

I added rules for having additional characters and character switching. I'll work on the faction rules next.

I've added the FAQ here (it's linked at the top of the site or in the quick links tab, and it's also linked in the rules): app.php/faq. If you have something for me to add, lemme know!

I've also added bonus rewards to the rules: app.php/bonus-rewards

I added an energy effect to magic, which could be used to let you power technology.

I fixed a slight bug in the points system that made everyone earn fewer points (~20% less) than they should have. This is fixed. (It wasn't counting spaces as characters, now it is)

I also lowered the cost and the strength of the shrinking and growth effects.

Lastly, I've added some lore and polished off some of the rules pages. The ship has crash-landed, and we're now in a more free-form part of the roleplay.

>I more medical equipment.
>I added the ability to increase the range of enhanced senses.
>I added the "cognition" tree under racial abilities.
>I made the storyteller account available to my Helpers/Mods - so they can write NPCs with it if they wish. It's not required to write NPCs with, but they may wish to use it just to help the narrative flow better or narrate events from another perspective. I personally find simply using the account helps me get into the right mindset for "dungeon master" posts.

We now have a wiki! wiki/index.php/Main_Page

It uses the same login info as your forum account. You'll need to be logged in on the forum to access it. I do need to manually give you the ability to write and edit pages, however, since I've yet to connect it to the "Roleplayers" group. So, if I missed you, and you wanna add to it, lemme know.

Also, don't worry, Dark Theme users, because I'm soon gonna add a dark theme for the wiki. Hopefully, that'll be out later today. Furthermore, I'm also working on an 'insight' effect. For those of you who want to be able to identify other magic spells/items and whatnot. It might also let you learn languages or other things. I'm currently just trying to make sure it's limited enough that it can't be too meta-gamey. Note that it also won't let you read minds.

I added a new page to the rules: Native Perks. Now Natives can "officially" be good at different things. You'll only need skills for more advanced things - you don't need a cooking skill, for example. If you're unsure whether something requires a skill, ask a mod.

@Sam Darkhon, @Haley Jane, and @Drāke Cliffell have all been added to the team as helpers. If you have questions when I'm not around, feel free to ask them. They won't know everything - especially with regards to new lore and systems - but they should be able to provide some help.

I've added a page to the rules about bases: app.php/bases

There'll soon be info there about advanced/expensive tech (I plan to work on that in a few days, maybe).

I've also added a "jumping" racial trait, as well as traits for generic enhanced vision and smell.
