Starfall++: Patch v44, v45, v46, and v47
« on: December 21, 2018, 12:02:44 pm »
Merry Christmas Monkeys!

For this holiday season we are very pleased to bring you one of our largest patches ever.  As of now, the patcher will update your clients to v47. This is a big update, so all full installers have also been updated to provide this new fully updated client.

A couple quick things before the patch details:

Unbans
All currently banned accounts have been unbanned. This only goes for accounts that were banned site-wide rather than just ingame, however we will likely be unbanning the ingame-banned accounts as well. What this means is if you were previously banned for something like vote exploitation or having too many accounts you should be able to play your characters again. Your bananas and Jaden have been wiped to prevent reaping rewards from your wrongdoings.

If you are still unable to log in to your account, please, take the time to attempt to reset the password before submitting a ticket for assistance.

Account limits
We now allow users to own as many accounts as they wish, but you still may only vote on one per 6 hours.

Testing & Reporting Issues
If you discover any issues, think something is not working properly, or discover an exploit of some sort, report it promptly on the bug forum. Reporting promptly avoids unnecessary rollback and also avoid banned for using an exploit.

When we started Jade Monkey / Monkey Dynasty back in 2012 the client was 10% of the size it is now, literally. There have been 10 times the maps, instances, content, even the classes have doubled! There is so much new content that it's hard to keep up. Please provide us with feedback about in-game content so we can improve it for you. We want you to have fun! That's the main goal here. So, please help us help you.

A fair amount of modifications were pushed without complete testing due to the enormous amount of work required to adequately test the content. As such, exploits and errors may exist. Please, report them immediately so we can avoid any potential rollback of server data. We will be available for the majority of the weekend to do quick patches as needed.


And now, the patch notes...

Patch 44 - Updating Hydran.

Item changes:
1. Made Dragon Elixir tradeable.
2. Made Spiritual Covenant tradeable.

Marketplace:
1. Affinity Beads have been removed from the marketplace as they are abundant in-game already and this will improve their value as a drop.

Instance:
  • Updated MTH rewards
    When you turn in a Champion Voucher you will receive the following:
    • 500 Taichi Pill
    • 1 bank note worth 10k gold.
    • A 10% chance for a 50k bank note!
    • 20 Dragon Elixir.
    • Affinity Beads increased to 10000 from 2000 and are tradeable.
    • Chroma Beads increased to 2000 from 200 and are tradeable.
    • 1 Drake Sigil Shard.
    • 50 Monkey Coins.
    • A 50% chance of receiving 5 Banana Peels.
    • A 10% chance of one tradeable Monkey Coin Pack


Drops:
  • We continued to rebalance MTH Jadeon for a good farming experience.
  • We removed transform gem from the drop lists for Overlord of Chaos, Evil Flora, and Empress Lunara.

Misc:
  • Changed the notification to world from the Chroma Bead Pack lotto to display the correct reward in chat.
  • Changed the notification from the Elysium Vessel to "You Win" because the interface was giving the incorrect prize details.
  • Repaired GM NPC.
  • You won't see traffic lights when the game crashes anymore, the software that did that was outdated and has been removed. 
  • There is a new `Clans / Alliances` forum for recruiting, posting videos, general discussions, etc

We were going to patch this a while ago, but new content became available. So, we went ahead and continued on with patch 45, 46, and 47.

Patch 45  - Starfall Expansion.

Starfall expansion has been added. This includes the addition of the Seira class, Clouded Kunlun, and lots of other new content.

Sunstream has changed, yet again. However, there are some known issues with autoroute that we plan to tackle in an upcoming patch.

We've also brought back a version of old Sunstream that is partially destroyed. We will have a vote to determine if we will keep this Sunstream or replace it with the version without fires and earthquakes and all that fun stuff. This is where you'll now find our custom NPCs, and there's more custom content coming soon.

Patch 46 & 47 - 1st round of updates to Starfall. 

Item changes:
  • When transformed you shouldn't be able to use your normal character skills in PvP. This isn't fully tested, please use the new bug report forum to report any issues you find with this.
  • Lunara and Overlord of Chaos gems have had their skills disabled.
  • When a new character logs into the game for the first time they will receive the Monkey Dynasty Starter Pack which has a variety of important items for early character advancement.

  • Taichi pills have been added to the first VIP tier.
  • Some nice rewards have been added to the final tier of VIP rewards.

Misc:
  • We've added an event system that will be used to automate PvP and PvE events and rewards. You will receive messages in-game that will update you on things like k/d, score, placement, streaks, and more.
  • Voidas had an issue where they were sometimes bald, that's now fixed.
  • Some players had issues with accessing their stash, this would result in a crash. This has been fixed.
  • Lottos have been cycled a bit at Jade Exchange Girl, notably, Hanebu Juice Box has returned.
  • The Understream Dream Journal exchange with an option to trade for sigil shards has returned.
  • Lady Linaska's spawn rate increased x5.
  • You can add port locations in MTH-Jadeon now.
  • Bank Note Exchange has been fixed.
  • Rift Gates in Garro are working now.
  • The chances of getting a higher grade Celesphere Sand Packs has been increased, with that said, we haven't touched crystals or looked at level 6 gems, this will be looked at for an upcoming patch and similarly edited.
  • The Flux and Ares shards are back at the Courage Exchange.
  • The Shady Dealer has an option where you can trade 9999 tradeable Chroma Beads for a Tradeable Chroma Bead box. Since a stack is now 30,000, we have added options for 30,000 as well.
  • The Soul Inverter you receive from Soul Inverter Shards is now tradeable.
  • You can now exchange Golden Letter for Sinister Orb, but not Firmus.
  • Reduced the time it takes to open Treasure Box, most chance packs, and Brocade Box.
  • Modified the Transform NPCs to have an exchange for almost all Transform Gems in the game.
  • You can now add locations in Dragon Mountain and Citadel to your Astrolabe.
  • Upgrading custom Skyblades is now fixed.
  • Fatecharm Sign has been modified so that you can trade the Eternals you get from it. This way if you get one you don't need, or don't want, you can at least sell it. Keep in mind this only works as long as you haven't opened the box with the Fatecharm inside of it. You can open the Fatecharm Sign, it will give you 3 Eternals, but they will be in individual boxes that are able to be traded. Once you open those boxes the Eternals cannot be traded anymore. I hope you understand how this works if you need more information before purchasing make sure to ask a GM. Refunds will not be offered if you "accidentally" open one of the boxes containing the Fate charms after you have opened the Fatecharm Sign.
  • The option to purchase Bank Notes at Stashkeeper has been renamed to Buy Bank Notes from Bank Note Exchange. The Bank Note Exchange is for exchanging bank notes for bank notes of larger or smaller denomination.
  • It will not cost courage to purchase BG gears, nor Gold Brick for Chu Han gears, however, it also doesn't cost Jasper Money or Skyline Pearls either. You will now use Ancient Coins for exchange.
  • Level 160 players should be able to enter any BG map now.
  • The Battle Exchange has had the following modifications:
     
    • It now takes 1 Medal to get 3 Soul Inverters.
    • The Moral Defender Badge now costs 10 Medals.
    • It now takes 1 Medal to get 2 Chi Enhancers.
    • Heaven's Secret Soul now costs 10 Medals.
  • Crafting only takes 1 second.
  • Quiz Bowl is back to our custom English version. There will be another update to the Quiz Bowl in the near future.
  • We've heard reports that the Fuwa Rayan level 20 skill for 2 clones was only generating 1 clone, after extensive testing we can assure you that there are two clones. The design has them using the same walk path, they are identical to each other. So it's quite difficult to see them, but there is definitely 2 of them.
  • Custom Auction has returned.
  • The items used for increasing Chroma Caps have been repaired.
  • Jumping Squirrel is back at Pet Master.
  • Hero Losken's Soul has returned to standing in town in Billows across from Skylord.
  • The Seal Exchange is found in Southern Border and can now be used to immediately exchange the required amount of Common Seal Orbs and Fine Seal Orbs for level 8 seals. Level 9 seals will be looked at in an upcoming patch.
  • There is a port in Sunstream at the Skylord that takes you to Seat of Chaos.
  • Added our custom GM icon. You will know a GM when you see our custom Monkey Dynasty symbol in-game.
  • Refining above +14 is now completely redundant. A +15 item has the same amount of power as a +14 of the same item. Because of this, you can now refine above +14. The rules have been updated to reflect this. If your account is banned for having an item above +14, please submit a ticket so we can make sure to unban your account.
  • Re-customized Fealty rewards. Basic Fealty Pack has a chance of a Drake Sigil Shard, Standard Fealty Pack has a chance of an Astri Sigil Shard, Advanced Fealty Pack has a chance for an Ares Sigil Shard, and the Ultimate Fealty Pack has a chance for a Flux Sigil Shard.
  • The prices in the Banana Peel Exchange for refining items did not accurately represent the exchange rate we were looking for. 1 Banana Peel is equal to 1/20th of a Banana and now most of the prices should reflect that.
  • We've also made some changes to how bug reporting will work, including the ability to upvote and downvote issues in our bug report forum. We will use the same format for suggestions in the near future.
  • Further, we've updated our ticket system and forum to the newest versions.

Known issues:
  • Dread Lab is gone, it'll come back, but it's gone for now. The rewards aren't gone, they were pushed to Shura Gauntlet. Those rewards have not been customized yet, it's currently slated for patch 49+. We will attempt to bring back DL in the same patch, but with some custom rewards.
  • The keys you sometimes get from Fealty may not work. Due to a lack of testers, we do not have very much information about why, but we hope to figure that out in a live setting and repair it for patch 49+.
  • Some of the new content isn't modified yet. We wanted to push this out so we could move on from the Hydran patch to something greater. We will make further improvements in upcoming patches.
  • There is a known issue receiving level 3 skills from some tomes. We have modified the lotto rewarding the items with the issue to reward coupons that you will be able to use to exchange for those items in the future.
  • The title you receive after returning from 30 days offline is in Chinese, we will update this soon.
  • ET, Orison, and other instances may not be fully modified. We do need feedback. These are slated for the next patch and will be updated based on your feedback.
  • You may find the occasional battery around the server. As this is a no-battery server, please report any you find.
  • We are aware that there may be need for updating custom potions. We need more feedback to determine if this is necessary and how we would do it.
  • When you first log in, the "what's new" menu is in Chinese. We were unable to determine how to edit this before we decided to push this patch. We will look into it further in an upcoming patch.

Patch 49

1. Fixed a critical exploit that allowed users to purchase a lotto for 0 gold.

2. Repaired the stack size on custom packs.

3. Fixed autosell crafting.

Patch 50

1. Removed Golden Statue from the marketplace. It was priced too low, but we considered having it in the marketplace at all a negative effect for the economy.

2. Adjusted the price of some lottos. They were lower than intended.

3. Added the Windy Gem to the marketplace for Seira players.

4. Fixed ability to port to Custom SS on realms 10, 13, 14, and 15.

Don't forget Kaz!

Old drop events will be looked at in the very near future. Yes, they will return and be used at different times. There will be a posted schedule in the near future.

The NPC chatter is super annoying and I did take a quick look for it before we patched, but I didn't finish. I do intend on removing it, however, I may use it for our custom NPCs, less often.

For now, yes, we do still need to exchange those manually, but we are looking at a way to simplify that process and we will be improving it in the near future.
