Development News #39 - ‘Custom Maps and Awesome Apps’

Post by Arrakis » 17 Feb 2017, 17:32

Hi, feudalists!

Breaking news! Second test run of LiF:ММО CBT(wave #1) will start on February 20th and we’re planning on it being held for two weeks - save the date and get excited!

rimg


The second bit of cool news is that LiF:YO custom maps are incoming thanks to a super smart users known as Teleon and Nyuton.

Teleon and Nyuton have opened two public testing servers. You can get involved and share your thoughts on the official forum thread.

rimg


For more information, check out the article.

We also want to touch upon the Life is Feudal:MMO app and the progress we’ve made with it.

The app is available on both Android and iOS and is compatible with the MMO only.

Keep connected to the Life is Feudal:MMO world while you’re on-the-go - featuring fun mini-games where you can store your results for later use in the Life is Feudal:MMO desktop app!

rimg


The mini-games in the app are: carpentry, forging, bowcraft, gathering, mining, logging, and materials preparation. The higher the score you achieve will give you a larger crafting bonus in the MMO. Check out the mini-game tutorial here for more information!

Thanks for reading this week’s development news!

- The team

I can't be the only one concerned about another 2 week mmo test followed by 2 months of nothing... wave 2 is already 8mos delayed considering the announced wave 1 end date of summer 2016

I think a lot of people are concerned about a lot of things but don't really take the time to say it.

I'm REALLY confused because the information I've been reading, including "official" information, and what is being announced doesn't fit....

Way I see it, whoever got to play in the first Beta will get another 2 weeks starting on the 20th of February.

After that, more downtime and a wipe before beta 2 / wave 2 / test run 2 / open beta / basically the launch because open beta is the launch.

Which would mean that open beta / launch would be next month and not (as said previously) "towards the end of 2017.

Either way I'm fine with but I think they could seriously improve on their communication, it's very very messy.

Nowhere even near that. They are still working on getting the stuff stable to a point where it can stay open for longer periods. Also there is so much content to be added before wipe and beta 2 can happen. It's the summer for now as best case. Till then wave 1 "phases" or "testruns" with much smaller downtimes.

If they move to wave 2 next month or so that will mean broken big promise that will piss so many players.

But it was confirmed that the one and only wipe would happen at the end of wave 1, which is relauching on the 20th and will end 2 weeks after.

So basically, wipe in 3 weeks or so... after wipe I don't know....

That's absolutely right, but who said wave 1 is ending in 2 weeks?

Image
As of that date the system wasn't even in development as there are more important tasks first.

In the announcement :

Breaking news! Second test run of LiF:ММО CBT(wave #1) will start on February 20th and we’re planning on it being held for two weeks - save the date and get excited!


doesn't "holding it for two weeks" mean that it will last two weeks?

This "phase 2" of wave 1 yes. The one in December last year (let's call it phase 1) was wave 1 as well.

whatever it is, wave 1, test run 2 beta 1, or whatever, it's starting again on 20th, it's lasting 2 weeks, and at the end of it, there will be a wipe.

And the wipe, was (again, "officially") confirmed to mark the end of closed beta and start of open beta, athough now it seems that it was pushed back to the begining of beta 2 so that the time line goes like this :

-> wave 1 suspended
-> wave 1 relaunch 20th of February
-> relaunch will last 2 weeks
-> servers go down again (probably 2 weeks)
-> full wipe
-> beta 2 / wave 2 (not open beta)
-> maybe servers down again (maybe not)
-> open beta / soft launch

So the wipe has moved from the end of beta 2 and beginning of open beta to the end of beta 1 and the beginning of beta 2.

Though of course, I could be misinterpreting all of this information, but really, how complicated could it be?

Where was there a wipe mentioned to be happening at the end of this phase of Wave 1?

I haven't seen that anywhere that I've looked so far, so unless myself and several other people like Sharana are wrong, then this is just another part of Wave 1 which will not be wiped at the end.

It seems to me they'll take the servers down, do some updates, and bring them back up again. Hopefully much faster this time.

here :

5. end of wave 1 means full wipe?
Answer: Yes, we've stated it in news.

As to your second paragraph, same post :

6. wave 2 will start immediately when wave 1 ends?
Answer: Well, might need a week or two to get everything prepared.

Yes I see. I think you're still not understanding their answers.

Yes there will definitely be a wipe at the end of Wave 1; I know it, you know it, everybody knows it.


However in 2 weeks it is NOT the END of Wave 1. It will be the end of one of the PARTS of Wave 1. Just as this rather long "holiday break" for the last 2 months was after the end of PART 1 of Wave 1, so too will this next break be between PART 2 and PART 3 of Wave 1.


Then the second thing you put up says that Wave 2 will not start immediately after Wave 1 ends. Which is fine, I never really expected that anyway.


Wave 2 is still not really scheduled to begin at any time. Wave 1 hasn't even ended yet! You're taking the end of another Part of Wave 1 and a break for them to fix things before another Part of Wave 1 into being the end of Wave 1. That's where you're getting things wrong.

I'm sorry but two weeks is not worth my time. I've been checking the forums daily to know when the servers come back on but two weeks. Time to move onto another game until at least wave two.

You are both providing info based on asumptions, there is no evidence for or against there being more phases of Wave1.

The truth, after these two weeks of Phase2/Wave 1 nobody knows what will happen next...

he is, I'm not, I provided a link to a thread in which Arrakis answered those questions, and I copy pasted the answers in response to recent questions.

The only thing that hasn't been said officialy (afaik) and for which it seems no one has official informatin, is how many parts Wave 1 / Beta 1 will have.

We all knew there would be 2, but it wasn't confirmed anywhere whether there would be 2, 3, 4, or 29 parts to wave 1..

2 weeks ? So our trees still won't be grown up at the end. :(

I mean ... we had like 2 weeks to "test" grinding up our skills. Now we have 2 weeks to "test" waiting for our shit to grow. At least speed things up x10 ..

Someone can tell my why it will be only 2 weeks open?
Just the reason. Im just assuming, they will colect data from 2 weeks, and closed server. So why they can't collect data from next 2 weeks and just dont closed server? Just dont get it. What that bothers?
What i have seen, that server running 24/7 they just closed, but not shutdown.

This is the latest roadmap that was postet from Arrakis:
http://lifeisfeudal.com/forum/feeling-enlightened-now-t21250/

But we want to clarify that, generally those stages/waves plan will be executed, just with a few corrections

In my opinion if they leave the MMO servers open, they will need to attend, solve issues, they will keep receiving bug reports etc. which will take away some of their effort from fixing the bugs and programming. In the end it would delay wave 2. There is the time of observing and then there is the time of working on what you have observed. You cant do both efficiently at the same time.
