News / Patch 62
« on: May 09, 2019, 08:52:18 am »
This patch has been applied!

This section at the top of patches will be updated to reflect the status of the patch since we are now announcing patches prior to their release.

--

Patching Schedule
The issue that we originally scheduled a weekly maintenance reboot to address has been resolved. That said, weekly patching has been highly requested. There were some logistical challenges that we had to overcome before being prepared to commit to weekly patching. There are still many factors that could potentially delay these weekly patches, but we are going to try it out. The approach we're going to go with is:
  • Tuesday: patch work completed
  • Wednesday: announcement + patch notes + time window for patching
  • Thursday: Apply the patch in the planned time window

Patches will generally be smaller. However, the majority of you have suggested that you would prefer more consistent patching rather than large patches with many changes.

Community Feedback

We'd also like to remind you how important the community is to the development process. Please, take the time to report issues and make suggestions, even if you believe they've already been reported or suggested. When we hear it from more people we know how important that particular feature, issue, or suggestion is to the community as a whole, and it tells us where to best utilize our time. This server wouldn't be over 6 years old without your input, feedback, and ideas.

Now, on to the changes.

Website:
  • We built a torrent version of the client for download.
  • We updated the site and removed the quick chat, it has been replaced with a Discord chat bot. Let us know what you think of it.
  • We've done some clean-up in the forums.

Game:
  • Changed the look of Tcholok NPC.
  • Moved the Recycling Center's exchange to Tcholok as a second exchange option.
  • Removed the Recycling Center NPC from custom SS.
  • The Skyblade NPC has been revamped to have more room for upcoming additions, this should also make it easier to find the Wings, Flying Mount or Skyblade you're looking for.
  • The Butterfly Shadow Wings have been removed from the GM NPC and replaced with Prismatic Wings which were added in patch 62.
  • Shadow Falcon has been removed from the GM NPC and replaced with Golden Raven Wings which were added in patch 61.
  • Cloud Whale has been removed from the GM NPC and replaced with the Spring Inspiration skyblade  which was added in patch 61.
  • 6 new custom skyblade/wing items were added:
    • Blue Jellyfish Wings
    • Linden Feather
    • Prismatic Wings
    • Green Dolphin
    • Sapphire Moor Goldfish
    • Summer Inspiration
  • Some skyblades, wings, and flying mounts were unable to be upgraded. This has been repaired.
  • We've added a new pet battery that is significantly better than Wongzo Grape. It's called Wongzo Banana and can be found in the marketplace for 50 Jaden.
  • We've added an exchange at Stashkeep Tamsin which allows you to exchange items for crates or packs of those items.
  • We've added more descriptions to custom items.
  • Divination quest rewards have been modified.
  • Sometimes a class would appear invisible after a faction change due to fashions not having models developed for the respective class. We have changed it so that those classes will now appear as Anan or Velonous. Please notify us if you continue to experience this issue and let us know which fashion you experienced it with.
  • We changed the respawn timer on most bosses to 8 hrs.
  • Banana Peel NPC:
    • Banana Peel Crate has been changed to Banana Peel Coupon

News / North American Daylight Savings
« on: March 10, 2019, 06:32:22 am »
It's that time of year again. Daylight savings! At 2am tonight North American players will lose an hour as clocks jump forward to 3am.

The server runs in a European timezone so  server time will not be changing until March 31st. Until then, those who experience daylight savings time tonight will see a 1 hour different in server time relative to their timezone.

After March 31st the time offset between North Americans and the server will return to normal.

Polls / Re: PvP Event System
« on: March 02, 2019, 12:40:06 am »
Thanks for the feedback guys.

Which specific messages do you think should be reduced? The PM messages are only sent to those who are actually participating in the event. The broadcasts can be reduced but there's no way to filter those by player so those are all or nothing. I think we can remove the class messages that accompany the broadcasts.

Let me know any more specific suggestions around reducing unnecessary messages.

Tonight we sent out 3 free lottos to everyone as part of our 6 year anniversary celebration. We also went over some of the things we've accomplished in 2019 so far and some fun previews for things we have on deck.

Event Extensions
Due to popular demand, we're extending several of the 6 year anniversary events:
  • 2x donations will last until the end of the month.
  • 2x vote rewards will last until the end of the month.
  • 6 year anniversary video contest will last until the end of the month.

Shop Changes and The Final 2x Donation Event
Now that we are officially 6 years old, it's time to say good bye to the much loved 4 year anniversary lotto. This item will be removed from the shop at the end of the month and is 25% off until then. Good luck!

We're also changing  how we do donation events. We will be phasing out 2x donation events going forward and instead will have more frequent sales on different shop items, combination deals, and coupons offering various sorts of discounts. Over the past several weeks the prices of shop items have been adjusted to ensure fairness and affordability with this new 2x policy in mind.

So take this opportunity to stock up on bananas as this will likely be our last double donation event aside from very major holidays.

Giveaways & more
We still have several more surprises in store for you all. Keep an eye out for an email  this week with some exclusive giveaways and special announcements!

Ensure your email is set correctly so you don't miss out on any of these giveaways and announcements.

News / 2x Vote + 6 Year Anniversary
« on: February 14, 2019, 12:59:20 am »
Double vote rewards have been enabled from now until the start of next week to 1) compensate for the downtime today 2) celebrate valentines day 3) and as an early start to our 6 year anniversary celebrations. That means you get 1,680 Jaden for every vote!


This weekend is our 6 year anniversary. It's crazy to think that this server has been around for 6 years now, and Jade Monkey + the original MD for even longer. Thanks to all of the staff and players who have made us what we are over the years and especially for all of the hard work lately by Perry, Kaz, and the rest of the staff team building this server to new great heights. We really couldn't have made it this far without all of you.

We've been working extra hard since the release of Starfall and I think it shows. We've never been more dedicated (or skilled) and I can't wait to show you all of the rest of the cool stuff we have in store over the next few months.

For new and old players alike, enjoy the double vote rewards! And don't forget to check out all of the cool events our team has lined up for you over the next week that include:


Stay tuned for more surprises coming out soon. Cheers!

Hi everyone,

There was a failure with one of our server's disk's last night and the result has caused a more complicated issue involving the kernel. I am working on it now and will have everything up and running as soon as possible. Sorry for the trouble everyone.

News / Patch 58+59

Shop overhaul

  • Faction Changes
    • We've further improved our ability to perform faction and gear changes.
    • Gear changes used to cost 500 Bananas, they now cost 300 Bananas.
    • The single piece gear change used to cost 150 Bananas, it now costs 100 Bananas.
    • The Faction change used to cost 250 Bananas, it now costs 175 Bananas.
    • We are still working on bringing Chroma changes, Chroma refunds, Full Change, and more!
  • Jaden
    • The amount of Jaden you will get when purchasing Jaden with Bananas had not increased along with the amount of Jaden earned from voting. Jaden rewards from purchasing with Bananas have now permanently doubled!
  • Chroma
    • Chroma has been completely removed from the Banana Shop, permanently.
  • Bodhi Seed
    • Bodhi Seed was added in Patch 57 and is available now. This is our first release of Bodhi Seed with future releases TBA.
  • Lotto
    • We have lowered the cost of the 4-year anniversary lotto from 150 Bananas to 100 Bananas due to it being in the shop for 2 years and some of the items rewarded being of less value in the Starfall patch.
  • Teleport
    • The 25 slot Astrolabe, 30-Day Astrolabe Recharge, and the full year of Astrolabe charges have been significantly reduced by 80%!
  • Monkey Coin Pack
    • The amount of Monkey Coin Packs purchased has increased by 20%, prices have stayed the same.
  • Sigils
    • Sigls have had their prices reduced. As the server is going on 6 years old and rewards in-game continue to increase, the prices on the shop have to drop to reflect that. With Sigils having their prices reduced from anywhere between 10% and 60% depending on the level of sigil, and 4-packs receiving a greater discount than before.
  • Firmus
    • The Firmus pack found on the shop now has a chance to award 3 Firmus!
  • Ancient Blood
    • Ancient Blood Jade and Ancient Blood Charm have had their prices reduced to match Ancient Blood Seal, and the full Ancient Blood Pack has been reduced by 25% as well.
  • Supreme Gift Coupon
    • We've reduced the Supreme Gift Coupon by 50 Bananas to 350 Bananas.
  • Fatecharm
    • The Fatecharm Fragment packs have been changed to have a higher minimum amount when opened, but also to have a chance of increasing that amount by up to double!
    • Fatecharm Sign has been reduced by 20%.
  • Level 5 Sands
    • We've temporarily removed level 5 Sands due to changes to gem-making and improvements we will be making to these offers.

Other changes
  • Spring Rice Glue Ball is now being awarded with some lottos again. (add a list)
  • Changed some shop tab names in various custom shops due to a length limit change.
  • Adjusted the cost for late sign-in to be more suitable for our server's Jaden rate.
  • Added many new item packs for event and lotto rewards.
  • Added a new lotto to the Pawn Shop for 10k gold.
  • Fixed the exploration special areas. They can be accessed now. Exploration will be seeing a complete overhaul in the next few patches.
  • Some items that had wrong icons have had their icons updated.
  • The donation pack in the marketplace had the wrong description. We've adjusted the description of the current one to reflect what's actually there, and added a Donation Pack 2.0 with the contents of what it had claimed was there, for twice the Jaden.
  • All pending custom titles have been added. Custom title purchase will be re-activated soon. Users that are waiting for their custom titles will receive their new titles sometime over the weekend.
  • The Star Fetcher title has been fixed.

Can I download this patch manually?

Not at this time, however we'll consider adding this option if there's enough demand for it. Why do you want to download it manually? Are you having trouble patching using the patcher?

The crediting can take a few minutes some times. And if it fails, we'll keep an eye on it and see if it's failing very frequently.

Due to backlash though, GTOP100 was removed for now. We will revisit that later.
