Update #32.1

Hello. Due to the change of the domain configuration, it is not possible to continue using the old client or using the address rookgaard.pl to connect to the server. Those who used our client are asked to download its updated version (they will not lose their minimaps or hotkeys, because changes are only inside the exe file), while people using TibiaLoader are asked to change their address from "rookgaard.pl" to "play.rookgaard.pl". However, it will be possible to use the previous configuration for people who have missed the change for 3 days more.

Update #32

Not much time has elapsed since the last news, and I'm coming back with another portion of changes :)

Just like last year, the Halloween hosted two invasions on the server - The Halloween Hare and The Mutated Pumpkin. Compared to its previous version, it has slightly less HP, and after defeating, in addition to the prize room, grants a small bonus for players participating in the raid.

The page in the Library tab has a new NPC list present on the server along with an approximate location, role and list of purchased items if the given NPC is merchant.

For better contact on the line players - the server staff - we have added the ability to notify Tugaon on the Discord of Game-Chat in the game. All you need to do is enter his nickname in the message to be marked in the application.

Tomorrow around noon we will enable the first polls in which we will ask how you think the various aspects of Xyla, starting in 2 months - from the exp stage, through exp areas, ending on many quests you might know from Fixera.

In addition, we have standardly corrected some bugs, including too quick summing Cobra at the Lizards, or incorrect descriptions of active rings.

See you in the game, hear you in the chat :)

Update #31

Page from the diary:

I'm involved in this profession for many years and I think it's time to retire... I'm a bit tired now and now I can rest... Maybe I'll do something else? You have to find a job in your life... Just what would it fit to do next? Perhaps I will deal with breeding? No... This is something completely different than what I've done so far and I have enough of animals. Maybe I'll start spending more time with people?! Still I don't know what I could do... What am I good at? As if to think this shooting is a good option, but am I sure? Looking at the activities so far, there was no lack of them... Exactly! In addition, I will be able to tell a story from my life! I just don't know if anyone will want to hear about dead animals... Maybe tracking someone will be fascinating? Only who would listen about the tracking of the animals... Ah, the smell of land in the trail left by the deer... Her smell left on the broken branches... Whistling an arrow or a bolt flying towards the body, and then her skinning... However, you have to feel it, because the story is not so fun... Maybe I will keep some information for myself? After all, there will be no one who will want to become a hunter, nor alone come to me for advice... However, if this happens, I will recognize one of my own. After all, I've been a hunter for many years!

Gulzer, because this is story of him, gives everyone the chance to extend Hunter Outfit with another addon! After a long time we managed to complete everything and hope to introduce a long-awaited balance to distance weapons. What else has been changed?

We've added a system to distribute bonuses from addons. So far we have only used it with Hunter Outfit, but over time will join the others, so the bonuses will also be for a first/second addon, not just for both.

The quest that accompanies the acquisition of the second addon introduces the aforementioned balance of distance weapons and allows the setting up of armaments typical for this kind of attack.

To be able to collect all the items required to complete each mission, two areas have been added:

  • the cathedral on Luminis has been extended to new levels by introducing more powerful types of cultists
  • cave with lizards needed to collect lizard leathers

Of course, the list of items that the NPC purchases such as Yasir, Rashid and others has been updated with new items.

To the current list of invasions we added 3 new ones (existing on RL), which - to be discovered in the coming days. The site also received another portion of missing translations.

About 2 years ago the launch of Legera and Hegera started on January 1 has been announced, and almost a year ago we announced the start of Xyla in the Alpha version. Another year is another announcement - we are pleased to inform that the server will go into the beta phase on December 1, and the official start will take place on the weekend preceding January 1. What will the final version of the server look like? More about this in the next post, and for now we are actively working on its development:

  • the server has been moved to a new more stable location
  • chat on the discord has been linked to an ingame Xyla chat
  • we updated the datapack for missing actions and continue to develop quests from RL
  • At the end of the compensation for the last few crashes. Fortunately, the situations that caused the failure of the end of August have been averted, but our own cam system remains a spike. Another system that minimizes crash losses already on the horizon.

    As always, see you in the game, hear you in the chat:)

    Update #30.1

    Welcome to the next portion of the news. The last two weeks have been largely devoted to fixing errors and reducing their effects.

    For a long time on the server there was a system that saved items from the ground, so that in case of an unforeseen restart, load them back to the ground as if nothing happened. This time, it was also extended to run again invasions of bosses that have not yet been defeated, such as Dragon or Munster.

    The way of skill training with Training Monks has been rebuilt. Until now, it was based on the engine mechanism counting how much the character does not move, which was a mistake, because it was enough to change the outfit or use items to reset the idle timer.

    For the first time in the history of the server (or rather, since we added the donation option), the bonus for filling the limit has been activated. This month is active is called "Smaller can more" and it will join the new pool, which will be drawn in the following months after reaching the limit. The current bonus may be tempting to leave the cavebot afk, so we have slightly changed the prison system to a more severe one. From now on, Patronus may appear from the cocoons alongside the Spiders, and in special cases prison guards - Dementors. They have a special attack sucking gradually active blessings on a given character.

    On Discord, the sending of messages with Polish characters was improved - from the game client to the Discord application and vice versa. The error related to the use of objects from a further distance has been corrected, and we added many guides in the forum in Polish and English. We have collected all of these and described them, and then we have refreshed the advertisement on larger forums devoted to OpenTiba.

    At the end the contest summary. The name of my daughter - Emilia - has been guessed by player Nuviusz, congratulations. As always, see you in the game, hear you in the chat :)

    Update #30

    Welcome after the next break. 4 weeks ago my daughter was born and therefore we have prepared a competition described below. In the meantime, we've added the following things to the server.

    Extensive paintball corrections which took the change of the arena by Nie Gap Sie, a number of improvements in the mechanics of the event and its optimization. Paintball will continue to be manually operated by crew members, and when more events will be developed, it will be launched automatically.

    Dvarf Miner and Elf Overseer raids have been added.

    Discord bot has been extended to show the loot of a given monster.

    As the problems with the houses shows from time to time, I added some automations in the process of recovering items. This does not mean that objects have disappeared earlier to someone else, only that I will be able to restore them quicker.

    While Xyla is still without news, the Android client got a few important fixes. In version 0.2:

    • longer hold of a point on the screen works like the right mouse click (shows the context menu)
    • in addition to the existing panel with arrows for walking, a window with hot-keys from F1 to F6 has been added
    • icons in the upper belt have been enlarged twice to make it easier to aim at them, especially on screens with a higher resolution (in plans for the future there is a responsiveness of the whole client to adapt to the current display resolution)
    • has been changed the mechanism of downloading game files (spr and dat) using the system curl command

    To encourage you to test android client and report what it's need to improve (in the game or on the forum), anyone who plays with it will get a greater amount of experience gained. The client is available for download in the Download section from the menu.

    Almost all bugs reported through the bug reporting / complaints window (CTRL + Z and report offenses) have been corrected:

    • improving the appearance of cheese and monsters that drop them correctly
    • improvement of baking mechanisms
    • improving the loot bonus mechanism from Scrooge
    • adding water ball support
    • improvement of the Beagle Brothers spawn in the maze (some of them gained immunity to invisibility) and hole place
    • improvement of messages about current raids at kings
    • improve Rashid's mission to suit specific days of the week
    • improving the allocation of Tarik lottery points
    • improvement in the purchase of various liquids at the NPC, such as at Norma and Lily
    • expanding Rashid's offer for missing items
    • improving the display of the guild and the players present in it
    • map update on the page with missing spawns and locations

    As a miniquest we have added on the map the box from which every few hours you can get a random item, including rusty armor and legs, and then using a rusty remover to get a random armoury item.

    At the end, a small competition for the birth of my daughter. The NPC at Temple Rookgaard and Luminis offers everyone 5 attempts to guess the name we gave her. The player who first gives the correct name will be rewarded not with one, but with two skill cards! New players who have no experience with this item, I encourage you to ask questions on the Game-chat.

    See you in the game, hear you in the chat:)
