Today we will be making some changes to the way ServUO accepts donations. Up until now when someone has donated they have done so without any return other than the knowledge they are helping keep ServUO alive. Today that changes. We will be offering a few perks to those that decide to donate to the cause.

Because everyone has different circumstances in their life and may not be able to donate a certain amount we will be offering three different tiers of donations for users to choose.

Silver tier
Donation required: $5 per month

Perks:
Silver member custom title below your username
Access to donator only forum where you can share ideas with other donors and staff

Gold tier
Donation required: $60 per year

Perks:
Silver member custom title below your username
Access to donator only forum where you can share ideas with other donors and staff
Access to Gold donor only scripts. Please read below for more information on this.

Platinum tier
Donation required: $100 per year

Perks:
Platinum member custom title below your username
Access to donator only forum where you can share ideas with other donors and staff
Access to Donor only scripts while they are in development. This is a great way to get to see these new scripts before anyone else and to get your feature requests in while the scripts are being developed. You will also get full access to completed scripts.

If you are interested in donating you may do so by click this link.

Q&A

Why the change?
The way ServUO traditionally accepted donations has been in place since the sites inception. It is not a perfect system and offers no incentive for those who donate. Today that changes. You will now gain access to specific perks for donating as a way to say thank you! As Well as that, the previous method did not garner enough donations per month to pay all the bills. ServUO has not be in the black for more than a year now....
Thanks to @argalep, we have Clean Up Britain, Exodus Encounter, and Blackthorn dungeon now active. Feel free to report any bugs or issues you may find!!!
  • Implemented proper mechanics for attackable items as per EA. Mobile Combatant property was changed from Mobile to IDamageable. Several Server/Scripts Distro edits were necesarry, as well as updates to AI. Damageable items now pass a new item flag to the client, enabeling health bar pulling.
  • Casting monsters no longer stop to cast
Changing Combatant in Mobile.cs was inevitable for EA like behavior for attacking items. Please let us know if there are any issues. I'll be looking at a pending pull request regarding Clean Up Britannia System. Also, will need some rigorous testing of the new exodus dungeon content.

If you have the latest repo running, due to the band aid fix for the previous attackable items, they will need to be deleted on startup. You can go to the invasion controller (InvasionController) located at the beginning section of the invasion in blackthorn dugneon, and select ForceRespawn to true.

Thanks!
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!

!!!ATTENTION!!!

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.
