May 2010 - Producer's Letter

I’m often at a loss on how to begin updates …

So how about we make what we called in the Air Force a “sandwich…” I won’t say what KIND of sandwich we called it … but we press basically good information between the not so good stuff.

First,

Publish 66 is out the door, and by the time you read this, we should have a few changes that will address the issues with pitchers, bards not being interrupted by Pally’s, the Bard book in the paperdoll, and a few other things you’ve helped us find. We appreciate players actually getting on test center and taking a look before we go to Origin. (Yes not Origins!) J 

Also, we hope you are enjoying the attention to the Enhanced Client, as well as delivering on the Memorial Engraving Tool. We thought getting this out before Memorial Day in the U.S. would be appropriate.

We got a lot of work done this publish, however we didn’t have all the time we needed to get out all we planned … so we are planning an additional mini-66 before July.  Most of it will be a large client update. Derek and Grimm should have an idea on the size of the change in the next couple weeks.

The patch will have some additional art updates, as well as some juicy additions to the Live story arc we could not fit into this publish. Given that, this is a great time to discuss the fiction gaps and our intent.

Greetings!

We are aware a number of players are currently experiencing issues with missing items in their homes on the Baja shard. Due to this we will need to restore the server to the backup made at 8:00AM EDT this morning. We are bringing the shard down immediately to avoid any additional loss of progress and expect it to be online by 5:00PM EDT.

We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause you and hope to have the issue resolved in the immediate future, thank you.

Hey all,

This is a prelude to topics that I’d like to cover in a more expansive letter this week:

  • We’ll discuss house design and gozamats: History and future
  • Current Status of Pub 66
  • Event story arc and loopholes in the fiction – Giving EMs a chance to catch up before major Live Event
  • Status of the 3rd party program detection – We are ready to implement and will let you know our plan of action for repeat offenders


Also, right now we are doing our best to get Pub 66 to Test Center .. hope to get you an update in the next 36 hours.

After Pub 66 initial  we will have a follow up publish several weeks after as we couldn’t fit all of pub 66 in one palpable serving.

See you on the boards,
Calvin
