|Small Bug Fix

|We have a small bug fix that involved seeing many MySQL errors if your user name had a single quote or apostrophe. This should be all settled and fixed now. |
|Phase 2 Ground Travel
By: Talibar Zukro , on: 2020-01-21 14:03:55
|Ground Travel Phase 2 has now been entered. Now, when you walk about a planet's grid, you can also walk on the 25x25 grid or city terrain. That means that there are 497,722 planetary grids that can be explored and even have cities built on with a total of 12,443,050 squares that can be crossed and traveled to in-game. That adds a whole new dimension to the game that was not there before. |
Now keep in mind there are going to be a lot more upgrades to this system over the course of the development. This is by far not the finished product of travel. I am sure this is obvious, but want to keep it out there. So hang tight. More upgrades coming. The next thing I am going to fix is chatting at your location. Then will be city building.
I suspect the phases will be this way in complete:
Phase 3: Fix chat to make it more specific to locations.
Phase 4: Build cities
Phase 5: Focus on creating ship crew permissions
Phase 6: Allow room maps for entities to work.
Phase 7: Allow entity/facility building in cities.
Phase 8: Better entity scanning at your location.
Phase 9: Create System maps and sector maps.
Phase 10: Require ships for interstellar travel.
Phase 11: Create vehicle functionality for terrain.
Phase 12: Create terrain restrictions.
Phase 13: Create Timers, notifications and XP Mining for travel.
Phase 14: Error and bug fixes
Phase 15: Upgrade GUI Look.
So there is a lot to do. Hoping a lot of this, if not all of it, gets done within the next month or two. Stay Tuned.

|You now have some basic ability to move about the planetary Terrain/City area. This is being worked on more and more during the next few days. So stay tuned.|

|RSS Feeds fixed
By: Talibar Zukro , on: 2020-01-18 12:52:11
|The RSS Feeds have been fixed. You can now link them to your favorite news readers. This works now for regular News and Star Wars News. Enjoy!|

|As you all may have noticed, you are now located on the plane Xo II. That is our refugee planet from the Vong. You are also located on Coordinates 3,7. A city has been built there called "refugee city". I am working on city/terrain movement over the next few days. So you might see some glitches when moving going to your travel screen.|
|More credit transfer updates..
By: Talibar Zukro , on: 2020-01-15 12:22:52
|I updated the look ever so slightly of the form just to make it look cleaner. I also made these adjustments:|
-You can send credits anonymously. When you do so, it wont say credits received from so and so. It will instead read "credits have been received by an anonymous benefactor".
-You can also now add a message with your credit transfers. The message will appear on your notifications when you receive the credits.
More updates of course will keep coming soon!
|What I will be working on over the next couple of
By: Talibar Zukro , on: 2020-01-14 17:05:59
|Just a brief update: Your ship inventory will show basic stats for your ship.|
I wanted to share what the next few phases of work will be for me during the next few weeks. I am working on different things for the game at the moment. One thing that will be repeatedly changing over the course of the next few weeks is the chat system. At the moment, it functions appropriately for the intended purpose it has. I would love to add more commands and even some emoji's. But in the grand scheme of things, it isn't a deal breaker. They will be added eventually, but it isn't the priority. Here are the phases of updates I am working on in no particular order for the next couple of weeks to a month:
-Support for different currencies
-Support for anonymous transfers
-Setting up salaries, when to automatically disperse them and a forced dispersal.
-Adding support to set up automatic salaries for new joinies of your faction.
-Adding support to spend OOGP to add more forums and departments.
-Public faction forums
-Ability to add departments and department news and department forums.
-Ability to add live chat to factions and their departments
-Basic Ground to Ground Travel
-Basic Grid Travel within terrain or city.
-Basic boarding ships and having a passenger manifest
-Travel requiring you be on board a ship.
-Room travel within entity.
-Ship scanning so you can see what ships are there.
Chat(Once room travel is implemented):
-Clear chat window when you leave a location. Chat Window will only register the chats that occurred from when you last got to your location until you leave. Once you leave, it will be cleared and the next time you go, the conversation window will start fresh.
Chat Script for Droids, NPC's and characters:
-Basic functionality will be implemented so that you can create a basic chat or dialogue without programming. Advanced options will come later.
-Basic Make Over capability.
The idea is that these features are implemented within a couple of weeks to a month. However, one feature can take from 2 days to 10 days to implement. So be patient. I am the sole programmer and designer and runner of this entire site and game.
|We still need help!
By: Talibar Zukro , on: 2020-01-13 15:19:57
|There is still a lot to do around here. And helping out will allow you to earn the lifeblood of the game: OOGP. These points/redemption awards can be used to make special purchases on entities that can not be purchased elsewhere except for direct trade with another player or faction. OOGP can be saved to even purchase force sensitivity(It will take a very long time to earn, but possible). OOGP are needed to create factions and build cities. OOGP are also used to create more data for factions such as additional departments and forums, etc... Don't run out! If we were to create a different game at any point, OOGP would transfer between games as well. |
If you can help out, that would be great. An incentive to keep you active will also be to award players with OOGP every time you click on a page. Right now we use ads to pay server costs. After 7 years or so.. We haven't earned enough to cash out once or even earn enough to cover one month of expenses. So for the time being, we have added a feature where every time you load a new page, you will receive 100 OOGP. If you see an ad that is interesting, please don't hesitate to click it. This will increase our pay out. This OOGP award will not last forever though. So, take advantage of this now. Also note that clicking on ads will not earn you any rewards. In the meantime, we are working with affiliate programs where we can sell and promote Disney and Star Wars related merchandise. Our game is meant to not just be a place for roleplayers, but to also expose the fanbase to as much of Disney's Star Wars Franchise. So eventually, the ads will be gone. We will pay our costs directly by selling affiliate items directly related to Star Wars.
What else can you do? Host Role playing scenarios on the forums. This can earn you up to 1000 OOGP per post depending on the post itself and can earn you up to an additional 100,000 OOGP at completion of a scenario.
Want to join the administrative team? That also will earn you OOGP. Just private message me and I can get you set up with privileges and payment! This game can't last without you.
Of course, something you can all do is spread the news. Word of mouth is huge. Post on twitter, invite friends, advertise on facebook... The more people know about it, the more interesting the game becomes. As you have seen, we have made big changes and more big changes are coming.
|Next Phase of live chat
By: Talibar Zukro , on: 2020-01-13 14:05:18
|Some updates to the chat system. First off, the location chat will show you below the message typing area who is online at the moment and at your location. The live chat will show you who is online site wide. There are some commands created for the purpose of RP and fun. These are the commands you can enter in chat that will make your life interesting while chatting up with other players:|
/me Message - will return a description of what you are doing. EG: /me went to the store - will display:
"Talibar Zukro went to the store."
/trout name - will slap the named person with a trout. EG: /trout Keibak Aruu - will show:
"Talibar Zukro slaps Keibak Aruu around a bit with a large trout."
/away - will display an away message. It will also show an away status near your name on the list of online users.
/activity message - Will display that you are doing an activity and place that activity name near your name on the status. EG: /activity playing sabacc with a wookiee - will show:
"Talibar Zukro is now playing Sabacc with a wookiee"
Your name will show the activity as: Talibar Zukro[playing Sabacc with a wookie]
/back - will show that you are back and will clear whatever your status is. Play responsibly with these new features.
Faction chat coming next.
