Squidwolf > Blog > 2013 > June

We occasionally get days that hint that summer should be here – days like Saturday, when the sky was blue and almost free of clouds (in a way that I tend to think of as typically Canadian) and I sat on the grassy hillside referred to at the end of PH Blue Shadow’s long speech about how much she missed Hazel with a double latte, waiting for inspiration on what to code next. Naturally, it’s been overcast since then, and no ray of inspiration has struck me yet, so you’ll have to excuse a rambling blog.

Since the last blog, I’ve done the basics of taking some of the NPC modifications we did, and made them blend better with the original vanilla mobs which is why we will be seeing Faction Mobs this summer.

Meh actually I’m not in the mood for writing, see you guys later. x

Diary entry of the ugly dev, part two:

I read some rumors that Factions might get an overhaul in the feedback on my blog on Storyline, so I took up this hammer that is sometimes laying around in our office and did some research on what the frak I’m doing. Now I feel like sharing this secret information with the rest of the world.

Factions is getting crazy improvements for MIKA1, mainly because of its current crappy status, I mean … it’s just not worth much effort if you get far enough away from the spawn point or don’t like playing with others.

Mobs

Yes you will be getting your own personal Faction Mobs and yes they will be awesome. As to the rumours that you will be able to get Withers to work for you, hells no. Can you imagine that?! …actually it sounds pretty awesome but sadly we don’t be doing it.

Faction Capture Points

To give you more incentives on creating and working in Factions we will be dropping some of these mysterious-sounding capture points all over the world starting with Edge. Capture these things (only at night) with your Faction buddies and you will be rewarded with boatloads of Exp. Doesn’t that just sound delightful, eh?

Working on something special…

A power failure earlier today affected the routers that connect the datacenter where Edge is hosted. Connection to the outside world was lost for a while due to this, but restored as soon as the problem was fixed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Squidwolf Mail services were disrupted for a short time this evening due to an emergency maintenance procedure. In recent days, the Squidwolf Mail servers have been running at extraordinarily high levels. Since this procedure was performed, load levels have been reduced to more tolerable levels.

Unfortunately, this procedure left little in the way of redirects or external notification. We apologize for any inconvenience the outage may have caused.

We’re deploying some hotfixes and addressing an exploit in this extended downtime. We should be up and running again about 13:00 GMT. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Well You will have to give me a day of 2 to refresh my memory man. I am not even going to try to lie and tell you I remember the tags 8(

Squidwolf Minecraft is the best minecraft server of all time.

 

The sun is beaming through my open window and here I am, frantically trying to pull together the last strings that will bind another issue of Squidwolf Magazine. Anyway, you may like to know that the magazine will be available soon & will be bagged and ready for download on July 11th, along with a free voucher-code for some buckets of awesomeness for all current members and those who sign-in to Squidwolf Minecraft for the first time during the month of July. Although Squidwolf Store is currently unavailable we do actually have a plan for changing that and all will be made clear THIS THURSDAY!!!

Must dash,

A new member of HARR (Hazel Archives & Records Repository), HARR CameraMemories has joined us this week.

Initial reports say that she’s a complete noobie, and should be prodded with spoons over and over.

A passer-by said: “Well, CameraMemories’ just zis guy, you know?”.

On Thursday 20 June Squidwolf Syndicate will reopen its doors with Timelines IV. All websites will be back online and our new services will be up & running.

I hope you like! BIG THINGS ARE COMING THIS WAY!!!
