[International] Sleepless Midnights |PVP|PVE|RP|Livemap - OLD CLAY & COPPER PROPERTIES!!

Post by Achaean » 12 Feb 2019, 12:27

Hello folks! Fresh, dedicated server ( hosted in Germany ) up looking to grow a solid community. All walks are welcome, be they oriented towards PvP, PvE, RP, or even a mix. We will do our best to accommodate all.

As of the date of this post, the server is completely uncivilized. At present the server is running the original map with the Umbrella add-on + Livemap ( https://livemap.feudal.tools/id/2155 ). The Nyu Island add-on may be added at a later date if more land-mass is desired. There are no rules save the following three;

1 - No building on the Ice Peak of the largest mountain ( building on the side of the mountain is fine. )
2 - No griefing.
3 - No monument destruction during judgement hour ( excessive base destruction should also be avoided ).

Those said, kill on sight is allowed, but continued harassment is not. Abuse of this will be at the GM's discretion. Roleplay is welcome, but as this is an international server, English must be used. Additional judgement hours may be added later on if desired. Alignment will also be reset as PvP is, as the title suggests, welcomed.

While PvP is welcomed, this is not a super fast skill server. Cooks and those who dedicate to be the best in their professions should be appreciated and sought out. We are set at x10 skill gain and everyone is welcome to do every profession as they should be with a maximum skill cap of 3000.

Additionally, OLD clay properties are enabled, meaning those of you who remember the classic base designs of the old days are welcome to get after it once more!

Once a solid player base is established, a market system and random events ( IE - merchant caravan laden with goods waylaid by rampaging bear waiting to be found, looted and either kept or turned in for reward ) will be announced!

Hope to see you in game!

Couple updates to the server to improve the overall experience.

- Tree growth doubled across the board.
- Deep clay pit added to the smaller island as a quality of life improvement for those wishing a little more isolation.

On a separate note, should ANY clay pit run dry they shall be refilled upon notification.

Another minor update to the server.

- Allowable height difference of rock face ( not to be confused with loose rock / mined rock ) to surrounding tiles substantially increased to allow dedicated base builders to really dig in to the side of mountains for a unique, imposing build.

That said, I also wanted to point out for those concerned; this server is here to be run indefinitely. Worry not about having your hard work lost on a whim.

With over a thousand hours in game years ago when the game released, I've found myself back at the gates of LiF:YO with the idea of revisiting what I consider the early glory days of YO. The days when you washed up on shore with nothing to your name but some rags on your back and a slimy fish to sustain you until you could carve out a piece of the untamed wilderness before you. Going back was not an option, only forward.

Do you yearn for the glory days? Don't wait; join up and let's revisit those days together; old clay properties included!

Not just another minor update...but a MAJOR update!

- 'Retrocopper'!

After excessive reading on the forums and what seemed an endless cycle of trial and error, classic copper properties have finally returned to LiF:YO, but only on Sleepless Midnights!

'Retrocopper' is yet another step towards bringing back the 'Classic' LiF:YO, which is exactly what Sleepless Midnights aims to do; provide a classic experience.

So what does this mean? It means that copper is once more registered as a 'common ore' and may be used to craft all but a few things in the world. Those few things that it CANNOT craft, as it could not in the classic days, include metal bands, metal sheets, and the hardened steel pickaxe. While there may be a couple other items it couldn't craft, memory does not recall.

BEFORE you get turned off to the idea, understand that one can play on the server WITHOUT 'Retrocopper', but they will be forced to play the game as normal; IE they will continue to have to make nails from iron rather than being able to also make them out of copper. The choice is ultimately yours.

Since LiF:YO does not sync client files with server files, it is unfortunate that one cannot activate the classic properties of copper without downloading the client-side files from the link below. All files are hosted at nexusmods, which scans the files itself to make sure they are completely clean. Files are provided to swap between modes.

https://www.nexusmods.com/lifeisfeudal/mods/8

So what are you waiting for? Go grab the files and log in to [International] Sleepless Midnights PVP|PVE|RP|Livemap for a TRUE Classic experience!

See you there!

+1 minor update.

- Any Slot Quivers.
- Classic Signal-fires.
- All optional modifications now available on the Sleepless Midnights discord server ( including 'Retrocopper' ).

Both listings are optional; the game will play normally without the above alterations. Any Slot Quivers is self explanatory, whereas the Classic Signal-fires allows one to once again turn their Signal-fires off.

Do it yourself instructions can be found on the Sleepless Midnights steam group; alternatively, pre-generated files are available for download on the Sleepless Midnights discord server; link also located on the Sleepless Midnights steam group.

Coming soon;

MAJOR, major update.

- New land in the south and southwest; the Levee and Haven ( in order ).
- Updated the optional mod 'Retrocopper' for balancing purposes by popular demand.
CHANGES
- Removed the option to craft armor and weapons from copper due to no quality cap.
- Removed the option to craft metal bands and metal sheets from copper once more due to
their prominence in shields and ranged ammunition.
- Defined parameters for copper crafting; in addition to normal copper items, copper may be used to craft nails, tools ( except for the hardened steel pickaxe ), toolkits, lamps, locks, metal components, and anvils.
- Added gold and silver crafting for true ballers; parameters match those of copper.
- Re-added copper ore to the Iron Market in light of the 'Retrocopper' balance update.
- Updated livemap with graphical improvements for seamless transition between the original land and the new.
- Tweaked forest script further, breaking up 'biomes' to allow for better density and diversity.

Many thanks to Nyuton of FeudalTools, who's time and dedication working closely with me allowed Haven and the Levee to become a reality.

Coming soon;

- Tradepost mod.
- Iron Hold; player driven, player built PvE village.
