News and Announcements / Server Wiped / New Beta Accounts
« on: June 09, 2018, 10:57:36 PM »
Hey guys,

I have wiped the server for the last time before the Open Beta. All the existing accounts that were carried over with their closed beta rewards are still intact. A few new accounts have also been rewarded the Bronze Closed Beta reward for testing in the most previous testing cycle and leveling to level 15+. These new accounts have also been carried over. NO CHARACTERS ARE SAVED.

Accounts that have been carried over are listed here: http://deloria.online/index.php?del=leaderboard

With more time to focus on Deloria again, updates will be produced at a much faster rate again. As always, I appreciate the patience.

Deloria Online General Discussion / More Info Soon
« on: May 16, 2018, 03:38:59 PM »
Hey guys,

I'll be posting some new info soon, but been a busy few weeks for me and Deloria coding time is currently limited. The last few things I added were the new Player Gardens and some new mobs in new zones. I'll be posting new screenshots in a few weeks and hope to have more time to code again. I posted some earlier screenshots/vid of the Player Gardens in the Discord channel.

Hope everyone is enjoying the start of the nice weather.

Deloria Online General Discussion / No Internet Still

Hey guys, for those who didn't read in the Discord channel, my internet has been out since Wednesday's big Wind Storm here in Ontario. I lost most my fences, some trees and my cable line. There was quite a few trees down and still not cleaned up/hooked back up yet.

News and Announcements / PvP and Ability Testing this weekend
« on: March 31, 2018, 01:04:15 PM »
Happy Easter guys,

I have the Private Beta Server up this weekend for testing new abilities and PvP. All existing characters will have their Ability Points reset. I have also doubled the Ability Points you can have so more abilities can be tested this weekend. You can now choose 12 abilities after completing your Mage Trials, instead of just 6.

I have also added a character boost in, so new players can boost a character to level 18 with moderate gear. This will allow them to jump into the PvP and abilities testing. Boosted players will also start with 10 AP (5 from quests pre-completed) and will also start with their final Mage Trial quest in their quest log. Upon completing this final Mage Trial, boosted characters will get 2 more AP and be able to choose a sub-class.

The new Grand Arena has also been added to Collingwood. This will speed up ability testing and offer some party vs party or free for all fun!

Appreciate the testing guys, and encourage anyone able to help with the testing.

Jeffrey

News and Announcements / Deloria Online Private Beta Starts!
« on: March 16, 2018, 07:54:38 PM »
Hey guys, just wanted to give a quick update on the final closed testing starting this weekend. This will be the last testing before the Deloria Online Open Beta starts. This is a fresh server and it will be up for testing this weekend (hopefully late Friday night) as well as next weekend. There is a bunch of new coding I need to test before the Beta, which is the purpose of this final test. It also gives players more content to explore, as well as experience a lot of the new features (Sub-Classes, Achievements, Stats, etc). Players can use the newly included Deloria Status Checker to let them know when the server is up. I will be working on the Party system during this test.

Players who had their Alpha accounts carried over (Only account, no characters) will have access to this final closed testing. If your account was not carried over and still want to be a part of the final testing, please join us in our Discord channel. I will be having open registration during select periods over the weekend and I will be posting in the channel ahead of time.

I have also included 1 more item to the Closed Alpha Rewards, a pair of level 1 boots. These boots have the same stats as the level 6 boots you can buy/wear from town, but you can wear them at level 1 and they are pre-enchanted with Autoloot. This will give a little extra defense to make early leveling a little faster, as well as save a little delets at level 6. The Experience elixirs in-game have also changed a bit. They are now 30% increased mob experience, instead of 15% increased experience from all sources. This method gives more experience, as 15% on mob kills was sometimes very minimum. They also have a level 5 level requirement, as they are pretty ineffective before that (too low of experience). I actually recommend waiting till reaching Rankin's Farmland or even Swindler Woods for a better value to them.


If you already have Deloria Online Beta installed from a previous installation, you just need to update. If you do not have Deloria Online installed, or if you have the OLD Closed Alpha client installed, please install fresh below. Make sure to uninstall any prior Closed Alpha version you had installed.

« on: March 02, 2018, 06:54:29 PM »
Hey guys,
I have updated the Deloria Online 4.4 Patch Notes. They have also been moved to a new topic below. I will update this page as new things are updated/added to the game. The Open Beta is approaching closer and I hope to have an estimated ETA soon. Thanks for everyone's patience, and remember to join us on Discord!

FULL 4.4 PATCH NOTES (with screenshots): http://www.deloria.online/forums/index.php?topic=158.0
DELORIA DISCORD CHANNEL: https://discordapp.com/invite/bVTPdSy

WHAT'S NEW 4.4 (Changes since Closed Alpha ended)
* NEWEST ITEMS AT TOP

NEW GRAND ARENA
I have added the new Grand Arena in Collingwood. This will help test PvP and abilities much faster, as well as some Party vs Party PvP action.

Collingwood Grand Arena

ALL NEW ABILITIES AND ABILITY TREES
I have greatly expanded the ability trees for all classes, adding more abilities and selection. Players will be able to customize their builds more and allow them to choose 20 abilities now (up from 15).

Expanded Ability Tree

ON-SCREEN DEBUFFS
On-top of debuffs showing at the top left of the game screen, debuffs will now also appear above your character so surrounding players can see any negative status affects you are inflicted with.

Example of character being disarmed!

NEW LOGOUT PROCESS
Characters will now have a 9 second logout process when quitting the game. You can force quit right away, but your character will remain on the server for the 9 second duration. This will prevent players from disconnecting to save lives from stuns and other debuffs. Logging out in a town bypasses this countdown.

New character logout

NEW SHOPS/VENDORS
Some new shops and vendors have opened up in Collingwood. Josie now sells jewelry, accessories and capes, while Scarlet in the Magic Shop now sells a variety of enchants. The Collingwood Dock is now open as well, selling boarding passes to Merchant Cove on Killik Island. Some of the existing vendors in town had some of their prices changed (ie: potions and elixirs are cheaper now).

NEW RENDERING
I have updated the rendering code to process faster in some areas, as well as make the rendering more compatible for crossover software from other OS.

NEW COLLISION DETECTION
I have a new unit detection code that will prevent from your character from moving onto the same tile as an NPC. This was a client-side rendering issue which should be resolved now. I have removed the auto-refresh that I put in as a temporary work-around for this bug.

NEW CHARACTER PROFILE
I have completely redid the View Character screen as the new Character Profile screen. It is used to for both yourself and other players in-game. The new Character Profile screen shows a lot more information for players, including; character stats and attributes, bonus stats and enchants, character achievements and player statistics.

NEW CHARACTER STAT BONUSES
Included on the new Character Profile screen you will see new stat bonuses and enchants listed. This will give you more detail on new stats bonuses and enchants you can now get from in-game equipment and items. Some bonuses have multiple levels, while some are more an on/off. For example; Autoloot is an on/off bonus. Once you have this bonus stat once, it will not increase further. Other bonuses may have caps or limits, for example; Increased Regeneration and Resource Regeneration have caps. Once you reach these caps, they will not increase any further. Bonuses that are at max will show in yellow, while non-max will show in white. If you do not have this bonus at all it will show in dark grey.

NEW PLAYER ACHIEVEMENTS
I have added the new achievement code in. Achievements have various ranks and points and can be acquired from a variety of methods in-game. You can view other players, as well as your own, achievements from the new Character Profile screen. Although only a handful of achievements are currently in (with various ranks), later achievements will include rewards like outfits and titles.

NEW PLAYER STATISTICS
I have added in the new player statistics. Some of these statistics will be used for leader boards down the road. You can view other players, as well as your own, statistics from the new Character Profile screen.

Character Profile: Stats, Attributes, Bonus Stats, Enchants, Statistics and Achievements

NEW ENCHANT SYSTEM
The new enchant system was added to the game. You can enchant certain equipment pieces with various enchants. These enchants add to your bonus stats. Depending on the gear or bonus stats you have, you enchant choice may vary. Some examples of enchants: Autoloot, Various Increase Stats, etc.

EXPANDED ABILITYBAR
The ability bar now holds 7 abilities. (up from 5)

UPDATED D-AMP MUSIC STREAMER
The Deloria-AMP in-game music streamer has been updated with more stations as well as gives the player the option to modify any existing stations or simply add new ones.

UPDATED QUEST CODE
I have updated the quest code to include more parameters for different quests. For players who were in the Closed Alpha, you will also notice some differences in the quest chains.

NEW SUB-CLASSES
Sub-Classes have been added to main classes. Each sub-class will have 2 spec trees to choose abilities from, on-top of the base class abilities.

Sub-classes have different categories:
> DD = Double Damage: Full damage ability tree with no heals or support.
> FS = Full Support: Full support ability tree with heals and buffs and no offensive abilities.
> SS = Semi Support: Half support and half damage. A variety of both abilities available in this tree.

An example of the mage is shown below:

MAGE > ELEMENTALIST or CLERIC

 > ELEMENTALIST: FIRE TREE (DD) or EARTH TREE (DD)
 > CLERIC: BENEDICTION TREE (FS) or HERESY TREE (SS)

NEW CLASS HALLS
New Class Halls have been added. Main Mage quests will now take place in the Mages Guild (Mage Tower in Collingwood) and then expand depending on which sub-class you choose. Clerics have a Sanctuary in the Collingwood Church and Elementalists can teleport to the Apex of the Mage Tower.

News and Announcements / Open Beta Launch Delay
« on: December 16, 2017, 06:31:13 PM »
Hey guys,

Just wanted to give an update on the status of the upcoming Open Beta. I am currently still working on the beta, but it won't be ready in time for the holidays or end of this year.  Originally the Open Alpha was planned for end of year, but I skipped the Open Alpha all together and going straight into the Open Beta because of the great testing accomplished from the Closed Alpha. I won't release the beta until it is in a more complete state with more content. I aim to have the Open Beta start shortly after the new year.

I will also be having some sort of winter event after the Open Beta launch, partly because we are missing a Christmas event and partly because I already have the winter event mostly coded in :)

Stay tuned for updated info and screenshots coming soon.

Thanks for the patience guys and I hope you all have a great holiday season!
