State of Deepworld: Summer 2015

Hey folks! A couple random announcements for you all as we head into the heat of summer:

Game Updates

Deepworld is kinda weird in that it's a thriving MMO run by only a few people. I haven't really taken a break from it since 2012, so last month I decided I needed a little mental time off. It was nice to unplug for a bit, even though it meant we didn't make progress on our long todo list. But don't fret, I'm back in business now! I'll be working on new items (more world machines soon!) and Steam, Android, and iOS updates as usual this summer.

Forum Organization

@lisa realized our forum categories were a little out of control, so we've merged a few categories together to make a cleaner experience. The changes:

- Merged Bugs, Windows Bugs, Beta Discussion into "Bugs"
- Merged Press, Blog into "Official Announcements"
- Merged Forum Development into "Feedback and Game Ideas"
- Merged Forum Games into "Off Topic"
- Merged Goodbye Cruel World into "Gripes and Grins"
- Merged Unofficial contests into "Events"
- Renamed FAQs to "Questions"

World Resets

We've had some issues with world resets lately, but we think we've nailed down the issues. We'll keep our eyes on it, but I think we'll see a lot fewer of these going forward.

Daily Loot

I'll get the regular loot rotation back in place next week. In the mean time, a new server update rolling out will default daily loot to a random loot item if nothing specific is configured. That way we'll never miss out completely on daily loot if I forget to configure it :)

    Whooo. Cant wait for 12 gunpowder = 2500xp

    But the auto assignment of daily loot is a great idea.

    Will past loots be redone?


    Also. Good to have you back Mike.

    Great to hear you took a break, that is a healthy decision.

    @mikeIaurence

    I would really love to see the new crow ranks rolling out.

    Also im looking forward to new machines.

    Welcome back in business. Have the revenues made positive progress?
    I think the idea about a "treasure chest" that can be bought in crown store, to let players make their own "chest of plenty", that they can fill up with a certain amount of items , would be a good idea to boost sales.

    @mikeIaurence another world reset happened in Old Thumbsham- a competition world. I was the only one there but I did lose a bit of work and materials including a tesla coil. This is an issue only because it is a comp world and I am not sure how far back this reset went. Hopefully, no one else lost any work.

    Here it is

    1. You could have just wrote it in one comment, Not 4. 2. Just wait awhile, It'll come back by itself eventually.
