A massive amount of content has just been added to our master repo thanks to @Dexter_Lexia

He has added support for the High Seas expansion. This includes the much sought after Galleon system.

This is all experimental right now and we need you to help us test. Please report any issues you have and they will be fixed asap.

So have fun!
Today I have finished my rewrite of the Art API from PHP to c# and asp.

The API no longer serves just art but will serve most client information a user requires. As time goes on more information will be added to the endpoint.

Right now what is available:
  • Item art
  • Gump art
  • Multi art
  • Animations (new)
  • Sounds(new)
I will continue to add to this list as time goes on.

Not only that but the API is open source now under the GNU v3 license and anyone is free to submit bug fixes and features or use it for their own needs.

Endpoints are available at: http://services.servuo.com/API
Source at: https://github.com/ServUO/Client-API
Have fun!

This week saw very little development work. All of the core team members are off doing other things. We'll be back to rapid development soon, but in the meanwhile we're just trying to keep the lights on. Thank you to all of the staff on the official server, and to everyone who continues to report bugs, needed features, spawn map inaccuracies, and decoration misses. This information is critical and really helps progress of the project! A small group of developers can't possibly find all of these things in a world as big as Sosaria.

The only fix that actually made it to the repo this week was a fix for Lumberjacking bonus resources. However there were two pull requests made that are pending review, and a third "unofficial" PR that has been offered by Crome of the RebirthUO shard. Thank you to kevin-10, jackuoll, and Crome for your awesome contributions! We'll get to reviewing and merging as soon as we can make the time!
Over the past two weeks the community has focused heavily on defects. The issue count keeps rising due to our awesome community reporting bugs, inaccuracies, and missing features. We also have a record number of contributors! The community is growing, involvement is on the rise, and things are generally improving. I am so grateful to serve such an awesome community!

We are making some major changes to the file structure of ServUO in an effort to reduce technical debt and make future development easier. However these changes mean that projects that have not forked directly from ServUO using Git, and are not using Git to manage merges to their projects, are going to have a tough time merging these changes.

If your project falls under this category, fear not! We can still help you get on the right path with a little Git trickery. Please post in the Script Support forums and we'll work on it.
Wow, did I really miss release notes for two weeks? Youch. Real life has gotten the best of me, but progress marches on! Huge thanks to all of the contributors and reporters that are making this project a success! I feel like the community is really coming together.

The past three weeks has focused primarily on fixing defects in existing content. As we get more players on the official shard, and as those players branch out into more and more content, we are getting great defect reports regarding what isn't working as expected and what needs tweaking.

This week saw a very troublesome bug which caused random lockups in the server. Most of the development team's effort was spent finding and correcting this bug.


New Features
The Item Insurance menu from OSI Publish 64 has been added. This menu allows a player to see all insurable items in their pack, toggle insurance, and view other details. This change also drastically lowers the price of insurance for most items. Insurance prices are now based on the item's magical intensities, vendor prices, and other properties.

Mage Armor now spawns correctly in the wild
Jacob's Pickax is now blessed

The Despise champion spawn has been reduced in radius a bit, please keep the feedback coming!

Known Defects
As of 3/7/2016 the server would print periods to the console every time an item generated with the Mage Armor property. This was since been resolved.
Starting tomorrow, around 2PM GMT both the site and official shard will not be available. This is to accommodate operating system updates on the server.

Expected downtime is expected to be about 2 hours for the website and 1 hour for the shard.
This week has seen an intense focus on feedback from the official ServUO shard. Come join us and help stamp out the bugs! A huge thanks to our players that have reported on these issues and helped us understand what was most important to them.

New Features
Animal Lore now works as intended. It is impossible to use the skill on anything but a tamed animal below 100 skill, and doing so will have no chance to gain skill. Below 110 skill it can be used on tamable animals. Above 110 skill it can be used on anything.
NPC vendors will now always be willing to withdraw gold from a player's bank account.
Random Item Generation is fixed! Yay! BIG thanks to Dexter for fixing this, and a big "I'm Sorry" for me breaking it repeatedly trying to integrate it into all of the other spawning systems we have. This is still disabled by default until we have vetted it out on the ServUO server. To turn it on, see Config/Loot.cfg .

Defects Fixed
The monsters of Britannia are no longer fooled by youthful looking grandmasters. Once a citizen reaches the Adept level they will loose their Young player status. Certain skills that are difficult to observe, such as battle focus or meditation, are not affected.
The Carpenter's Union has relaxed lumber oversight regulations, lumberjacks may now cut raw logs into ready boards without a Carpenter's oversight, even for rare wood types.
Many of the vendors of the Royal City have begun selling specialty wears for their own people, although some still only deal in human equipment.
The monsters of Britannia have gotten over their fascination with Mystic and Necromatic magic, and are once again carrying all scrolls in relative proportion.

Technical Stuff
Stealing from a monster carrying no gold will no longer crash the server
The Meditation buff icon will now properly disappear in all cases
The Alchemy menu has been updated for...
