Game Update V0.5.4

Today brings a massive overhaul to many of our underlying systems in a bid to improve server performance and enable us to produce higher quality content. Here's the list of changes.

Game Update V0.5.4
   
- Massive improvement to the games scripting engine, this will enable us to push future scripts to new limits. As an example, one of the biggest factors holding us back from this release was that originally the setup script which operates each time you load up a battle tower floor, which can be pretty often, this could take up to around 110ms with each...

Spontaneous tourney: Fun forest, fun!

Spontaneous tourney: Fun forest, fun!

The end of the summerbreak is allmost there for all of us, so what better way to to end it that with another spontaneous tourney? The idea is similar to 'Dissida's finest', you can only use pokemon caught in the three forests in Pdod: Everlasting forest(1 badge), Forest 2(3 badges) and Serenity forest (6 badges). You may also use pokemon found in the waters there (4 badges). You will, again, have to catch these pokemon yourself and they need an ID number thats over the one mentioned in the specific rules. If we are lucky, we might e...

Dev Diary: Battle Tower/Quest Master Launch Explained

I can't seem to get off a server message at the moment or apply a server fix without being bombarded with questions about the launch of the battle tower and accompanying quest master, so I will give everyone a small brief on what's going on behind the scenes at the moment and help you to understand the delays.

The main thing holding us back for the time being is that we managed to reach the peaks of what the scripting system was able to accomplish, this was when generating a map and crunching the decision making for the rest of the setup. Previously during events you may ha...

Extended Maintenance [ONLINE]

I will be taking the game server offline today at approximately 13:00 Game Server Time, this is planned to last for 3 hours. This will be the only service affected for the majority of the time although there may be a few minutes where the forums are unavailable as I join our services.

With this maintenance I will be bringing forward the V0.5.3 release and performing the required database conversions, without the battle tower/quest master changes. These will follow in the next 48 hours once they are ready. This means that when we do release the battle tower we don't need to worr...

What's The Wait About? V0.5.3 Release Info

As we've had a few delays with being able to bring forward the battle tower and quest master release, I thought it would be a good time to provide a little more information for what V0.5.3 will bring to the table. Most of the changes here will improve existing systems, although we do have the long awaited Quest Master and Battle Tower features included. Here's a small bullet point set of notes for what's coming, tell us what you think below :P

Dev Diary: Quest Master... What? Where? When? Why?

I've kept fairly quiet about this feature on both the forums and in the game, this is because it's going to be such a big concept for us that we haven't really been able to draw a line around the features which will and will be a part of the finalised version. What the quest master is for us is a new platform to provide you with extra game content, this will be released in three stages with each of these aiming to target a specific portion of the community.

One thing our recent spontaneous tournaments have shown us, is that we've been neglecting the newbies of the c...

Double Battle Coins - Legendary Perks

The Battle Tower has had to be delayed by a day or two so that we can bring it forward with the right amount of variety and quality. I've fallen a little behind in my schedule with the tasks I set out for this week and it all has a knock on effect :) In normal PDoD style when we advertise the launch of something special and delay it, we're going to do something to help the day stay enjoyable.

This means that for the entirety of Friday 31st July and Saturday 1st Au...

Windows 10

Just as a heads up, I did mean to address this at some point yesterday after I started to receive questions from people. So far we have not been able to do any testing to see whether the client  is working correctly under windows 10 so if there's anyone using windows and the only game they play is PDoD you may want to hold off on the upgrade at least for a few weeks, it remains free for a year anyway right :)

I plan to move my development system over to windows 1...
