Lusternia Development Timeline
Written by: Estarra the Eternal
Date: Thursday, January 10th, 2019
Addressed to: Everyone
As you know, Lusternia is undergoing some big changes in the upcoming months while maintaining events. Rather than make you wonder what we are up to and what we have planned, I wanted to keep you apprised of what to expect in the first quarter of the year.
Daily Credits - This will be an ongoing project that will be the main coding focus until its release. Players will be able to earn daily credits through questing and other means. We'll provide more details within the next few weeks with more details.
Special Project - There is a special project for a new system in the works (details won't be revealed until release) but should help give new meaning import to guilds, provide a commodity and gold sink, and provide daily (optional) conflict scenarios.
January 13, 2019 - 10:00 a.m. PST/6:00 p.m. GMT - Q&A with players to discuss upcoming changes. Bring your ideas!
January 19-20, 2019 - Great Hunt and double XP weekend!
January 2019 - Ability of certain trade skills to break down aethergoop craft items for a small portion of their creation value (i.e., cooking skills can break down athergoop candies, etc.). Review some of the great ideas on new aether crafts in other trade skills from forum ideas.
January 2019 - Village commodity production will be reviewed and adjusted. Commodity quests will not be touched!
January 2019 - Upkeeps to city/commune guards will be reviewed and adjusted. This may be a larger project that won't be released for several weeks because we will change the maintenance of guards from guilds to the main organization.
February 2019 - Daily credits should be wrapped up and ready for release, but there also may need to be several weeks of testing. The goal is for daily credits to be released in February, but in no event should it be later than March. More specific dates will be released at the end of January when we can gauge how far coding has progressed.
February 2019 - Ascension has not been forgotten! Events will start in February and run until the Final Ascension. Details of dates in time will be released within the next several days.
February 14, 2019 - Dolly Valentine Event!
February - Review aethergoop and commodity changes, make any necessary tweaks to stabilize economy.
March 17, 2019 - Leprechaun King/Queen Event!
March 2019 - Players have expressed concern about wonder items. Review and update wonder items with player input.
For the second quarter (April-June), the first review of player reports will begin (which we plan to do on a quarterly basis) and then focus on updates to druids/mages.
