News / Server outage + Patch 55
« on: January 05, 2019, 08:20:41 am »
The server crashed due to a technical issue. While fixing it, we applied patch 55. Thank you for your patience.


Patch 55

1. Removed the world chat notification for receiving the title Returned from a Dream.

2. Added descriptions to faction change items.

3. Added Seira faction change item.

4. Fixed custom pets. If you purchased one while they were bugged then it will probably still be bugged, you need to find a GM in-game to get a refund.

5. You can now use astrolabe in Garro.

6. Coupon reset timer has been returned to the original status. We'll see how this works, we have detected 2 other changes that might ultimately be the issue. We expect the coupon issue to be fully resolved within the next week.

7. Dragonne(Pet) was reduced in size, this should hopefully fix the targeting issue.

Faction changes should return in the next patch. Possibly as early as tonight. Automated events will be going live sometime this weekend.

News / Bans and unbans
« on: January 03, 2019, 02:56:11 pm »
Today we completed the recovery of sigils that were obtained through the courage exploit. All of the users that exploited this issue have now been unbanned. 2 users that were banned did not exploit the issue, but knew about the issue and did not report it. We feel this was sufficient for a ban.

Further, we have begun a new ban policy surrounding vote exploitation. If a user is caught exploiting the voting system they will no longer be permanently banned, instead, they will be issued a 7-day ban and their Jaden will be wiped.  If they have no Jaden, we will pursue other consequences such as removing your bank notes or destroying your gear.

Today, 75 users were banned for exploiting votes, most of which were connected to just 1 person.

Please, do everybody a favor and just follow the rules. I'd rather be working on content than administrative tasks, and you'd rather that too.

News / Patch 54
« on: December 29, 2018, 01:10:56 pm »
This was an unplanned patch that we applied because the server crashed due to a technical issue.

1. We realized that the charge rewards were not as they should be for our server. We've temporarily removed them to evaluate them and add rewards that are more suitable for our server.

2. We're testing a fix to the coupon issue, the test is only on MTH coupons right now. It'll take about a day or two until we'll know if this resolution works.

News / Patch v43
« on: October 12, 2018, 04:59:23 am »
Hi guys, a few random adjustments for you. We have the next few patches planned out and will be delivering some regular updates for the rest of the year. Enjoy!

Items
  • Jumping Squirrel added back to Pet Master Ellan.
  • Ascended Menguu Relic added to marketplace for 20 Jaden.
  • Chroma Lotto added to Jordy NPC in Sunstream - Rewards range from 300 Chroma Beads to 300,000! Chroma Bead rewards are tradeable. Good luck!
  • Rayan BG Lumen armor fixed.
  • Bank Note Exchange has returned
  • The option to purchase Bank Notes has been renamed to Buy Bank Notes from Bank Note Exchange.
  • You can now stack many items to 30k!
  • Esper Gems now stack to 100.
  • We've made Soul Ash and Ice Orb of Vastness tradeable.
  • Most packs should open quicker.


Drops
Multiple areas have had their drops completely refactored:
  • MTH-Jadeon has been modified to have increased drop rates for esper related items, but you'll also find very rare items dropping there such as Monkey Coins, Ice Orbs, and Heaven Dragon Seal.
  • Inferna has had the drops rewritten to add in several new items and with improved logic that will result in a better grinding experience. We've also added some very valuable items into the drop list, but at a very low chance. Who will be the lucky one to pick up a Flux Sigil?
  • CP has had a complete recalibration on the drop rates. The mobs drop useful items, the bosses have even better chances, and Linaska has a better chance of appearing at the end of a CP. Further, the quest "A Dark Future" has been modified to give a better sigil shard than previously possible. The other quests for completing CP, the quests for talking to NPCs, etc, have all had increased rewards. So take your time and enjoy CP! Don't forget about the sidequests.

Quests, Events, NPCs
  • Custom NPCs are back.
  • Custom Auction is back! It might take a few days to kick in, but it is back.
  • Quiz Bowl is now in English.
  • Courage has been removed from requirements for BG gears.
  • Experience gained from monsters in Citadel has been increased.
  • The quest Blessing of the Dragon has been changed to Blessing of the Monkey, and now instead of rewarding a Coldmoon Essence it will reward you with 5 Monkey Coins, but it also has a chance of rewarding you with 1 Diamond and a small chance of rewarding you with a Flux Sigil Shard.
  • Purple spam fixed.
  • Sanctuary Jadescroll has been removed and replaced with some Monkey Coins for now.

More updates coming soon.

News / Patch v42 - Hydran T2, Assimilation, ...
« on: September 16, 2018, 06:36:16 pm »
More stuff fixed.

End.


Just kidding.

Hydran Tier 2 is fixed.
Lots of stuff is fixed that we didn't know was broken and was never reported so we can't tell you exactly what was fixed. lol
Upgrading some skyblades is fixed, realizing as I wrote this that I missed some. We'll probably do a quick follow-up patch tonight.
Assimilation issues are fixed.
Sigil shard exchange is back, I think
Banana Peel NPC is fixed.
Flux Sigil 4-pack is fixed.
Some items that were not tradeable since the Hydran patch are now tradeable again.
Some stacks were too low, those are fixed.

Definitely missed stuff that's fixed and I forgot is fixed.

Chinese spam is gone, but some other stuff is back to Chinese. This is temporary while we wait for an improved aipolicy editor to release. Hopefully this month. We might change it again, idk yet. We can change it back if you prefer the purple spam.

Talisman back in marketplace.
Provisions back in marketplace.

Lots of other stuff that I forgot about. Just look for issues and report them as you see them. We're planning to push another patch later tonight with a whole slew of small edits to improve various PvE elements of the game.

Oh and don't forget to enter the Ultimate Raffle on forums.

News / Patch v35
« on: September 04, 2018, 12:55:38 am »
Oh look, we did 2 patches in 3 days. It's unicorn season.

You know, lots of stuff was changed. I forgot some of it, but hey, you'll tell me if something is wrong, right? Of course you might.

Custom NPCs are back. Yeah, they aren't perfect. Another patch will come soon and will make it better.

Drop rates are increased. Maybe not as high as they should be, we'll decide that after we do another modification to drop lists.

Perfect Tawen Gems don't work. No idea why, yet, but we'll find out. And when we know, we'll fix it. Until then, use the normal ones.

Hydran Esper Gem doesn't work. I don't know why, yet, but we'll find out. And when we know, we'll fix it. Like other stuff.

Keep reporting stuff. Slack remains the best place to do so.

Don't like the drops? Buy yourself that item... What was it called? I forget the name. Maybe someone in world chat knows. Kill 18 of those mobs in Kunlun, forget what they're called, and open an Elysium Vessel. It has pretty contents.


Another patch coming real, real, soon. More fixes, let me know what you think I should fix first.

News / Banana Shop
« on: July 26, 2018, 12:01:44 pm »
The Banana Shop has been temporarily disabled for an update. We'll update this post when it's back live.

Thank you for your understanding.

The Banana Shop is live again. You will not see the changes yet, but there will be more lottos available when the patch has been completed. Sales will also appear more often than before.

There will be more changes to the Banana Shop around the time that the Hydran patch is released.

News / Registration problem - resolved
« on: May 01, 2018, 09:40:31 am »
We have resolved the registration issue.

I apologize for the late post, I'm very sick right now.

There was a technical issue affecting all outgoing emails and that prevented our registrations from completing and sending out activation emails. The error has now been resolved and protections have been put in place to prevent it from happening again. This was a very unusual error and likely won't happen again.

Thank you for your patience.

We will post when it has been resolved.

Thank you for your understanding and patience.

News / Recent Server Outages
« on: March 20, 2018, 03:36:29 pm »
We had ongoing server outages for a few months, or longer. After months of monitoring the issue, we determined the issue must be hardware-related.

Our provider recently contacted us and let us know that they had replaced the CPU cooling system. This is likely what was causing these outages. As the server would overheat and automatically restart.

As rare issues like these pop-up, we learn from them and improve. Every year we have less downtime than the last year.

Hopefully, this issue has been fixed. However, we already did rent a replacement server anyway. So, when we do the Hydran patch, there will likely be a migration to a new server along with it.

We wouldn't be spinning up a 3rd server if we weren't that close. Still can't give a date, but we're almost there. You'll get a date when we add the new landing page with that information.

Events / Santa Claus is coming to Sunstream!
« on: December 19, 2017, 12:12:57 am »
We all have a Child within us that gets excited when Christmas is around the corner and this is mainly due to gifting!
Here at MD we would love to give you an opportunity to unleash that inner child.


All you have to do is write a letter to Monkey Santa.

Tell us in the form of an actual letter what would you like to get in Christmas mail from your Monkey Santa, and why. A new skyblade? A mount you have always wanted to get? Maybe a pet that made you giggle every time you saw it? Don't be too greedy with your wishes, Santa's miracles are limited.

Please include your IGN in your letter! And have fun with it, make sure it's like what you would actually write in a letter to Santa.

The Monkey Santa is very generous. Who knows what he has in his bag of tricks?

Let's get into the Christmas Spirit together. We hope you all have a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Happy New Year.

P.S. While Monkey Santa was visiting Sunstream today, Kirito asked for x4 votes for everyone. Somehow, Monkey Santa was able to manipulate the rewards system to award 4x more Jaden right up into the new year! Enjoy!

News / Email issues and other news
« on: November 18, 2017, 06:47:57 pm »
There was an issue with our email server that affected all users. This prevented users from registering new accounts and resetting passwords. This has been resolved. You can now register new accounts and reset passwords as needed.

Please submit a ticket at http://monkeydynasty.org/support if you need more assistance.

Big changes coming before the year ends, as we prepare for our 5-year anniversary in February. No wipes, same devs, and continued development.

2x donations returning soon!

Hydran patch also coming soon, with new customs and much more!!

General Discussion / Real $$$ transactions
« on: October 20, 2016, 07:48:06 pm »
For obvious reasons, this is against our rules.

Further, it's not a very smart thing to do. You'll probably be scammed.

Do not post requests or offers for external trades. This is meant for in-game transactions.

If you post to sell your bananas, jadens, items or anything else for $$$, then your bananas will be wiped and your account will be banned. No warnings. This is your only warning.

We may add a feature in the future that will support transactions like these, but until we can log, moderate, and profit off of it. It will not be allowed.

Polls / Should "sex change" return?
« on: October 10, 2016, 08:41:50 am »
We used to offer an item known as "sex change". This item would allow you to change a character from make to female or vice versa. It was also included with a full change,

First of all, the goal of this option was to offer a workaround to offer same-sex marriage.

Second. This option was removed because people were using it to exploit fashion specific skills that are based on sex. This is also the main reason players want it to return.

Finally. We removed this because some players thought that it was unfair that other players could basically purchase extra fashion skills. The ultimate result of this option. We agreed that this was an exploit and therefore should be removed. However, we were unable to find a way to remove these skills from users who had already obtained them. So....

We want to ask you guys what you think about this feature returning? Let us know by voting in the above poll. Review the FAQs below for more information.


Some questions people will have.

Will it cost bananas ?
Yes. It definitely will. Most likely 500 bananas. Bananas are much easier to obtain free now than they were before.

Can you remove the skills from players that have already exploited this bug?
No, we can't. The only other option is to accept that some players will have a few extra skills.

Will you ban the users that previously exploited this bug?
No. This was our fault and we don't believe players should suffer due to unintended consequences.

Will you give away these changes for free?
No. We don't see any reason to do this. Anyone who has it has had to pay for it.

Will you remove "sex change" again?
No. If the community votes to reinstate this option then it will be permanently  readded.


Will you be able to buy "sex change" for other accounts?
Yes. Like with any gear change or faction change you will be able to purchase for another user.

Can you use free bananas or banana peels to purchase "sex change"?
Yes. You certainly can.

Is this an exploit?
Technically, yes. It is. An exploit is anything being used in a way that is unintended by the developers. So, yes. it is an exploit by definition. However, I believe that the best solution to this is to just readd it and make it easier to obtain. The "cat is out of the bag" so to speak, and I believe that the only solution is to allow all players the option to obtain these skills.

Let me know what you think.
