« on: November 05, 2009, 07:11:40 PM »
Planes of Sedia  0.1.4.2

Plains of Sedia is an integration of MUDs and Roguelike games. Plains of Sedia is also used as a D20 storytelling module. All campaigns as they take place are implemented into the game. Creation of the world of Urd in the game is implemented through it's open-source game engine also created in VB.NET that edits the databases in real-time as the game is in progress. The project has recently been ported and restarted.

A few features:

    * Dynamic weather pattern algorithm.
    * 69 unique weapon types.
    * 140 unique armor types.
    * Standard, magical, rare, unique, and legendary item qualities.
    * 141 unique weapon and armor material types.
    * 129 different wearable item enchantment types
    * 99 different environment types.
    * 10 different tradesguild types.
    * 71 different creature types.
    * 9 different creature archetypes.
    * 15 different character races.
    * 14 different character classes with 70 including prestiege.
    * 12 different citizenship types.
    * 8 different military rank types per each of the 5 main cities.
    * 5 different clans.
    * 13 different rodes to follow.

Well, this should ultimately be pretty substantial should dev continue at a good clip.  Wasn't there somebody recently tinkering/decent at the vs 2008 vb.net slate of things around here?

Incremental updates the likes of which I can't discern aside, it seems the game will now take advantage of the historically HIGH budget, but now free/enhanced, Unreal 3 Engine as it is now being ported over/recreated to use it.

I doubt anybody would've guessed a month or 2 ago that a Roguelike/MUD hybrid thing would soon jump to such an engine, but it makes sense I reckon.  I mean, it used to cost $750K for about the level of access that is now free and being updated actively.

"PLOS 0.1.6.0 is live. Resources Beta 0.1b is live"

What this means in particular is unknown, but a good sign given the progress of events in terms of conversion and such that'd been ongoing.

Next

If StringsAreSame == False then

else
   Output(1,1,"I have the feeling this string will never see the light of day.")
End if

 :D  Well, let's just pretend it was me projecting an inherent commentary on the many planes of existence the Project space seems to envelop...
