Howdy! This is where I’ll post entries from various civilians and VLT employees from before, during, and after the events of the Worlds Fair.

I forgot how much I loved this job. My team and I may have just discovered a way to breathe life into our creations! Using the coordinates provided by the Almira Abacus //ALMIRA ABACUS: A DEVICE USED BY VALITECH AND RIVUX ENGINEERS AND SCIENTISTS TO DISCOVER NEW “WORLDS”, ALTERNATE DIMENSIONS CREATED BY ######### FOR UNKOWN REASONS//, we were able to discover, well, I don’t want to spoil it, but... we found ghosts! I don’t want to reveal the how the ectoplasm //ECTOPLASM: A BYPRODUCT OF THE ECTOPLASM COLLECTION PROCESS; ABLE TO GIVE MACHINES LIFE AND GIVE TEST SUBJECTS UNKNOWN ABILITIES// collection process works (boss says it may “surprise anyone who reads this”), but I’ll say what I can say: this is big. Maybe the biggest since the lightbulb. Maybe even electricity! In fact, we may never need electricity again! I could do a happy dance right now!
Hey folks! As you are no doubt aware, I've been very busy with Real Life since the holidays. Over the last four years or so, I've had a full-time job as a software architect at an education company, which has had its busy points but was mostly a pretty chill job. This past December, though, I was promoted to a senior management position. As it turns out, that is good and bad! Good for career growth, bad for free time. Thus, Deepworld has not received the TLC that it deserves. That's just life, though, so we soldier on and do what we can.
Speaking of doing what I can, it seems like there's been an uptick in patchers and other gremlin-like activity. That's no good. So, I'm working on a few changes that will be deployed in the next few days:
Since I cannot commit as much time to policing bad behavior, it's definitely time (well past time!) to bestow trusted players with some moderation power. This great responsibility will come with two powers for now: time-limited muting and restricting. Each usage of this will also create a permanent note, so game owners (and soon, other moderators) can see the history of any given gremlin. This also means we'll be able to monitor usage of muting and restricting to make sure that nobody is going on an extended power trip 😈
New game restrictions to prevent "forced server lagging"
Extreme server lagging can lead to duplication glitches, so we have to institute additional measures to try and prevent such things from happening. For now, this will include:
- Maximum of five pandoras at once
- Maximum of two hundred spawned enemies at once
I will post later this week when these changes are live. Hopefully we can bring a little more stability and cleanliness into the game for y'all!
