As the title says, this thread will be used to post updates as they happen. I will just be updating the main post so that there aren't 10 posts in a row with 2 things on them.

[Added Features]
------------------ January 5, 2018 -------------------
- Added dynamic shadows to NPCs (thank you to Solid for the idea and the render code. I improved it so AE and ER will use the same shadow code).

 

------------------ January 22, 2018 -------------------
- Added sub for getting all sub directories and files.

 

------------------ January 23, 2018 -------------------
- I have a rough draft of adding file names and categories to an array at the server load.
- I have the rough draft of loading files working.
- The file list now uses a class and collections.

 

------------------ January 27, 2018 -------------------
- I can now fill a collection with user defined types (this should speed the update up since I don't have to rewrite all the types as well).
- Fixed the file lists to use collections and UDTs instead of weird class collection mixes.

 

------------------ January 28, 2018 -------------------
- Clearing the collections should be working now

 

------------------ May 3, 2018 -------------------
- Handling new connections should be working (it's working well enough, but I'll be doing more tests later)

 

------------------ May 4, 2018 -------------------
- I have a working exampled of saving the data

 

------------------ May 20, 2018 -------------------
- Generic saving and loading data is working (in test project, not officially tested in ER)

 

------------------ June 16, 2018 -------------------
- Map Items, Npcs, Doors, and Resources have classes (holding collections) to keep track of

 

------------------ June 20, 2018 -------------------

------------------ September 28, 2018 -------------------
- Finished my pathfinding (it's working outside the engine, I need to add it in)

- Added my A* Pathfinding
- Improving/fixing some pathfinding code to work with the maps and blocks

 

------------------ October 7, 2018 -------------------
- Added functions to get the IDs of maps from the coordinates, and coordinates from the ID (Maps use coordinates to make unique IDs so I can keep track of them in 1D arrays/dictionaries)
- Added quick processing for NPC movement (used when a map goes from unprocessed to processed)
- Added fast process option (it won't help a lot, but it will cut down on some calculations) for maps that were unprocessed and need processing
- Fixed some code that applies buffs
- Starting to make Players and NPCs use the same formulas for max vitals, regen, damage, etc.

 

------------------ October 10, 2018 -------------------
- Added pools to handle the despawning/unloading of maps, NPCs, resources, and items
- Added scrlbars to server to set the despawn timer (option doesn't save yet)

------------------ November 6, 2018 -------------------

------------------ November 11, 2018 -------------------
- Unloading is now easier to call with other subs
- Added server commands (help and unload for now)
- Can unload things with the unload command
- Staggered unloading so it's not all done at once (less server impact/lag)

 

------------------ November 25, 2018 -------------------
- Added a chkDebug to server. Not checking this will make the server generate a random Rnd seed
- Added modRandom and RndArrOrder (give a random order for a range of numbers)

 

------------------ January 23, 2019 -------------------

------------------ August 15, 2019 -------------------

I'm planning on focusing on adding some server options for the screen as well as adding map protection so other mappers don't mess with your map.

Is this forum/engine dead?

This engine isn't dead, but I haven't had much time to work on it this past year due to my job.

The forum is another matter, and it's as alive as the community. There is more chatter on the discord.

Ah fair enough. Do you have a discord invite? I'm slowly learning vb6 as I really enjoy messing with these. 

 

Just to make you aware: The auction system on renewal dles not work. It is possible to bid less than the highest bid.
