Paragon Chat 1.0.11 Patch Notes
« on: December 31, 2016, 05:33:20 AM »
Patch notes for version 1.0.11.1
Update branch: Release
Release date: 13 Jan 2017

Zones
  • Pocket D: Tweak positioning of some of the neon lighting to fix the worst offenders for graphical flicker. Rescue a couple in the green area that were buried in the wall.

  • Pocket D: Fix the hero and villain transfer areas beyond the elevators.


Patch notes for version 1.0.11
Update branch: Release
Release date: 13 Jan 2017

NPCs
  • Found a way to re-enable the default idle animations for many of the static NPCs throughout the game world. Mercedes Sheldon can finally get her legs out of the couch!
Powers
  • New power: Hover. Its movement speed values are set to simulate Hover slotted with 1 flight speed SO, plus unslotted Inherent Swift.

  • Super Speed numbers adjusted to simulate the power being slotted with 3 SOs, which hits the player run speed cap.

  • Super Jump numbers adjusted to simulate the power being slotted with 3 SOs, which hits the player jump height cap. It was already at the jump speed cap before this change.

  • Fly numbers adjusted to simulate the power being slotted with 3 SOs, which hits the player flight speed cap.
Zones
  • In conjunction with Aeon Corp, DJ Zero has commissioned construction of a new wing of Pocket D to cater to adventurous clientele.

    This is a community-contributed addition. It was put together by The Demon Hunter, formerly of Virtue server, as a "what-if" of sorts. It's based on an idea was regularly brought up on the official forums while the game was live as an alternative to the (baffling from a lore perspective) Rikti War Zone location. It's also a test not only of how feasible it is to modify content, but as an early trial of some new tech developed for Paragon Chat to help facilitate it. A huge thank you goes out to DH for developing and contributing this amazing content!

  • Added a map marker to the door in the Ski Chalet area that leads back to the main Pocket D complex.


Patch notes for version 1.0.10
Update branch: Release
Release date: 10 Jan 2017

Badges
  • Placed the Cage Fighter badge in Sharkhead, next to Tommy, so that there is a way to obtain it without needing third-party addons.

  • Added a way to obtain the Head of the Hydra badge in the Abandoned Sewer Network, so that it does not require manually editing configuration files to earn.
Events
  • The Mysterious Island in Croatoa should no longer sometimes be extra mysterious and fail to appear after switching characters to another already in Croatoa (potentially causing some epic rubber-banding). No visible change as the Halloween event is not currently active.
Zones
  • The Galaxy City Monorail stop is once again functional and open for business.

  • Various key figures have returned to their rightful places in Galaxy City.


Patch notes for version 1.0.9.4
Update branch: Release
Release date: 2 Jan 2017

Badges
  • Fix another dumb typo preventing the accolades from actually awarding when they hit 100% completion. Sigh.


Patch notes for version 1.0.9.3
Update branch: Release
Release date: 2 Jan 2017

Badges
  • Fix dumb typo in badge loading code that prevented the zone accolades from tracking/awarding consistently.


Patch notes for version 1.0.9.2
Update branch: Release
Release date: 2 Jan 2017

Badges
  • Fix one-off badge in front of the Imperial City tailor that does not follow the standard naming scheme.

  • Add hooks to the stats system to allow badges to register for callbacks.

  • Periodically refresh status of badges that have been affected by external events, such as stats callbacks, and re-check to see if the requirements have been met.

  • Implement necessary logic for badge hints to appear once there is some progress towards obtaining it, as well as badge progress meters.

  • Add Toy Collector badge for opening 200 presents scattered around the world.

  • Add system support for badges which depend on other badges.

  • Add system support for generic volume triggers that can be used to implement special handlers for multi-part exploration badges.

  • Automatically load and activate exploration accolades for the majority of the zones which follow a standard naming scheme.

  • Manually add exploration accolades for zones with issues precluding the automated system from working: Faultline, Independence Port, and all 6 Praetorian zones.

  • Implement Rail Raider and, for the masochists, River Rat multi-part exploration badges.

  • Implement Viva Praetoria meta-accolade badge.
Zones
  • Make zone doors that do not link anywhere, but are tagged with an "OpenDoor" beacon open when clicked. This is used for a few doors in the Underground Praetorian zones.


Patch notes for version 1.0.9.1
Update branch: Release
Release date: 31 Dec 2016

Badges (Yes, Badges)
  • Fix the exploration badges in Independence Port and Crey's Folly that were not awarding. These were broken because the original developers misspelled the zone in the badge name, but correctly in the volume name for earning it, causing a mismatch.
Powers
  • Fix a bug that would cause a crash while loading if two adjacent powers in the powers array were both NULL during compaction.

    The primary trigger for this was exchanging gifts with other players, using up all charges of both Holiday Cheer and Mystery Gift, then moving to another zone.


Patch notes for version 1.0.9
Update branch: Release
Release date: 30 Dec 2016

Miscellaneous
  • Go to place and thing happen. TODO: Write better patch notes.
Pocket D
  • Add a special handler to check for the spawn points used for the gravity geyser on the ski slope in Pocket D and spawn the correct entity. Now those who like living dangerously can take the fork with the jump rather than the teleport.

    There weren't that many different types of launchers and they were named consistently enough to guess which one goes with each spawndef. Went ahead and activated all of them so the other geyers in Pocket D should be working, too. Probably the Shadow Shard as well, but haven't checked if they're launching in the correct direction.
Powers
  • The default tray for new characters now includes Teleport. Existing characters that don't have it will need to drag it from the power window to their tray.
UI
  • Add a mapmenu macro by default to the power tray of newly created characters, to help new players get around.

It's the thing that other people had been trying to code as an external thing, but it's part of the main thing. It's a wonderful thing.
One of things i miss most is my whimsically named PB, general incompetence. With his battlecry of "I know what I'm doing!" he only achieved 30 levels of making villains look bad before the shutdown.
NPC: "I heard the Council museum heist was foiled by general incompetence!"

These updates are great! Especially the badges. Nothing makes me happier than being able to receive a badge again like the good ole days. Another update that I think would be cool is to bring back the cars that used to drive around in the zones and the pedestrians. I feel like they would liven up the zones since most of the time I'm the only one there and it gets creepy and lonely lol.. I wish the villain groups and monsters could just hang around in the zones again too and not kill you but just be there like NPC's. Especially in Croatoa, I used to go there and just watch the Fire Bolg attack and watch the Ghost wreak havoc.

Apparently, I am a masochist.  :)

Pick a few that are the most near and dear to you, and give them your all, trusting that others are out there handling the other causes with equal fervor."

Hah, I was right.

When Nyx mentioned upthread that it was a thing that people had tried to do externally, I knew that was a reference to my badgebot.  (The major other potential "go to place"-related external things were NPC bots; at least, my bot was place-related, being stationary.  I knew it wasn't NPCs, as Paragon Chat has had those since forever.)  Decided not to point it out and ruin the surprise.

The core functionality of the badgebot did work, btw, I just never got time to finish dealing with some of the wrinkles caused by handling badge tracking via a bot.

It doesn't mean the badge bot can't be used in other ways.  (Loc-based Fed Ex missions?  Call Boxes?  History Plaques?)

It already did history plaques, but yeah, it could be used for any number of things.  I have no problem with badges being part of PC, though; that was actually the preferred solution, and it's more transparent for the player.

I started the badgebot simply to try and give people more to do, allowing Codewalker to focus on higher priority things.  Just wasn't able to finish it.

Happy New Year to Codewalker, Leandro and Tony and all the dev' team flying the flag for CoH.  As well as a Happy New Year to the CoH community on here.

1.0.9 is a very intriguing release.

The best implementation of TP yet!  A nice dollop of seconds to pick your spot when site seeing.  Far better than the original in my view.

A basic powers framework (!) was the most thought provoking bullet point.  So we have...recharge...and targeting?  This almost teases the Paragon Chat community...  I guess the powers do 'feel' more like the originals.  (I looked at the recharge on the snowball...)

...and with that...'something' (!) finally to do.  A Christmas event which my honoury duo partner and myself participated in. 

Badges!  I got the Atlas one...and a few location badges in IP!  Yes.  More 'something' to do!

And combat...PVP style...with...snowballs!  And playing frisby.  I never had the snowball in the original game so I made up for lost time...

...and....

Present collecting.  Lots of them.  I have candy canes! :D

A great release.  A sign post of things to come?

Azrael.

Late though it may be, I wanted to add my thanks for the latest update and the goodies included therein. Outstanding!

And very much thanks for not pulling the snow, or the presents yet. I did not get on until this week. I hope the presents and snow last a while, I have not gotten my fill of them.

Badge hunting, and present opening... earning an Accolade...

Yes, it does threaten to make me choke up a bit. Happy, though, very happy.

1.0.8 Patch Notes:

Quote
As the first week did not include any kind of persistence, for this year only the event has been extended to run through January 15, 2017. Subsequent years will run on the normal schedule of December 7 through January 6.

You still have time, but less than a week.  Next Sunday, it ends.

For great justice.


Patch notes for version 1.0.11
Update branch: Release
Release date: 13 Jan 2017

NPCs
  • Found a way to re-enable the default idle animations for many of the static NPCs throughout the game world. Mercedes Sheldon can finally get her legs out of the couch!
Powers
  • New power: Hover. Its movement speed values are set to simulate Hover slotted with 1 flight speed SO, plus unslotted Inherent Swift.

  • Super Speed numbers adjusted to simulate the power being slotted with 3 SOs, which hits the player run speed cap.

  • Super Jump numbers adjusted to simulate the power being slotted with 3 SOs, which hits the player jump height cap. It was already at the jump speed cap before this change.

  • Fly numbers adjusted to simulate the power being slotted with 3 SOs, which hits the player flight speed cap.
Zones
  • In conjunction with Aeon Corp, DJ Zero has commissioned construction of a new wing of Pocket D to cater to adventurous clientele.

    This is a community-contributed addition. It was put together by The Demon Hunter, formerly of Virtue server, as a "what-if" of sorts. It's based on an idea was regularly brought up on the official forums while the game was live as an alternative to the (baffling from a lore perspective) Rikti War Zone location. It's also a test not only of how feasible it is to modify content, but as an early trial of some new tech developed for Paragon Chat to help facilitate it. A huge thank you goes out to DH for developing and contributing this amazing content!

  • Added a map marker to the door in the Ski Chalet area that leads back to the main Pocket D complex.

Currently; Not doing any streaming, found myself with less time available recently.  Still playing starbound periodically, though I am thinking of trying other games.  Don't tell me to play mmohtg's though please :).  Getting back into participating in VO and the successors again to.

For great justice.


Patch notes for version 1.0.11
Update branch: Release
Release date: 13 Jan 2017

NPCs
  • Found a way to re-enable the default idle animations for many of the static NPCs throughout the game world. Mercedes Sheldon can finally get her legs out of the couch!
Powers
  • New power: Hover. Its movement speed values are set to simulate Hover slotted with 1 flight speed SO, plus unslotted Inherent Swift.
  • Super Speed numbers adjusted to simulate the power being slotted with 3 SOs, which hits the player run speed cap.
  • Super Jump numbers adjusted to simulate the power being slotted with 3 SOs, which hits the player jump height cap. It was already at the jump speed cap before this change.
  • Fly numbers adjusted to simulate the power being slotted with 3 SOs, which hits the player flight speed cap.
Zones
  • In conjunction with Aeon Corp, DJ Zero has commissioned construction of a new wing of Pocket D to cater to adventurous clientele.

    This is a community-contributed addition. It was put together by The Demon Hunter, formerly of Virtue server, as a "what-if" of sorts. It's based on an idea was regularly brought up on the official forums while the game was live as an alternative to the (baffling from a lore perspective) Rikti War Zone location. It's also a test not only of how feasible it is to modify content, but as an early trial of some new tech developed for Paragon Chat to help facilitate it. A huge thank you goes out to DH for developing and contributing this amazing content!
  • Added a map marker to the door in the Ski Chalet area that leads back to the main Pocket D complex.
Sholy hit!
One of things i miss most is my whimsically named PB, general incompetence. With his battlecry of "I know what I'm doing!" he only achieved 30 levels of making villains look bad before the shutdown.
NPC: "I heard the Council museum heist was foiled by general incompetence!"

I'm digging the "Green Side" of Pocket D.  Nicely done!

Hat tip to TheDemonHunter!

Lots of nooks and crannies in this place.  Go see for yourself. :D

Wow, seems like every time I log in lately, there's something even more fabulous!  Loving the new "Green Room" in the "D", and players have been really crowing over the getting Hover and Teleport!   Loving every bit of it!  Thanks, CW and Team, and Thanks, TheDemonHunter!!

By the way, does anyone mind if I share these images with the FB COH groups?

The green zone is incredibly well done! It feels like a natural addition to the game... and by that I men end-game addition where the Paragon team was getting much better at making new things.

EDIT: I looked around more closesly and there are some really cool nooks. It's such a clean design with fun extras all in a small space. It's just great! I hope Demon Hunter is reading this thread because as a web designer and UI advocate (unofficial... I just complain a lot when it's bad), I'm really impressed!

Great!  The game seems much more alive now.

Indeed, I am reading here! I thank you and everyone else who has had such kind words for the work I've done in Pocket D. The comments really mean a lot to me! :)

There is a PayPal donate link on the cohtitan.com home page.  But it comes with a huge caveat.

This has been discussed before, and probably bears repeating: we can't campaign to fund Paragon Chat development, since the project is lightly traipsing the border of an illegal client to City of Heroes.  (I won't go into the semantics of why, as that will make this thread become a copy of "New Efforts".  Literally 100's of pages have been dedicated to this already.)  Because of this, telling folks straight up that we're taking money for development would make a Cease and Desist order much more likely to occur.

Therefore if you want your money to go strictly to Paragon Chat, then don't donate. There is no answer that makes what you want to happen possible at the moment (laws do change, so I won't say never).

If you donate to PayPal, the funds go towards the general operation of Titan Network, which include the XMPP server that Paragon Chat runs upon (from what I understand, it's a vanilla install for the most part, there's no magic to it other than handling chat traffic), these boards, our host, the wiki, etc.  Unlike Humble Bundle, there's no 'control' on what your funds go to other than keeping the Titan Network and all of its associated sites rolling on.

If you're okay with that reality, then go for it.

It is a completely vanilla Openfire server. Nothing is needed on the server side, intentionally. All the magic happens on the player's computers.

Patch 1.0.11.

Warlock wizardry from he who walks with code.

Impressive release from Codewalker.  Is this map editing(?!) I spy? :o

Well done Codewalker and DemonHunter (impressive debut...take a bow.).  (Community contribution.  Intrigue...  Map editing.  Further intrigue.)

What teasery is this?  A test of 'new technology' to enable the above...

Lua scripting on the horizon? 

And 'It's Alive!  ALIVE!'  NPCs with 'cycling' animations.  Ms. Liberty looking more like her 'old' self.

What chance Paragon's mobs to spawn in situ running through idling animations?  That would look kind of spooky though.  Them standing there...idling...waiting for the day for pathings and combat to drop.

Hover.  Yes!  Very fast.

SJ.  Extremely fast.

Fly.  Is that turbo flight fast? ;)  I think I even got motion sickness switching between SJ and Flight.  Very fast indeed. 

TP.  Is that a new aura on TP?  Like the longer TP 'where shall I go...next..?' timing rather than the 'oh golly...hit the button quick...'  (Where?)  ANYWHERE!  Just don't fall to my doom quick. 

Any chance of TP's Recall Friend for Paragon Chat teaming?

I wonder when the 'RPG' map instance and NPC summoning with RPG powers is going to drop?  Be nice to summon NPCs like you could in Icon.  (Wasn't in on the timeline at 1.2?) 

I'm curious.  We've got all the maps.  Map making and editing technology.  Travel portals working.  All the travel powers.  'Chat' (and the back space 'beep...')  NPC animations...  Map editing.  Snowballs.  Badges.  Teaming.  SG Bases (on the developer edition of Paragon Chat...).  That's a remarkably amount of the game's infrastructure right there...

What's next?  Muses*

Pets?  The power tray list?
Getting SG bases into the standard PC edition?
Private Instance maps with static NPC spawning for RPG'ing?
Self affecting power auras?
Powers and combat dummies?


Watching Paragon Chat's Progress with Great Interest.

Excellent.

Azrael.
