[France] Rookgaard 8.6

9 posts in this topic

Hello OpenTibia!

Today start second edition of Rookgaard. The first edition was better than I could have imagined, so it's time for another! Some things changed, some not, so I'm inviting you to check out what's going on.

 

Website & IP: Rookgaard.pl

Port: 7171

Client: 8.60

Contact:
  • e-mail: info@rookgaard.pl
  • FB: Rookgaard.pl
  • forum: Rookgaard.pl

 

What has been changed:

 

1. Fixera and Hegera - contant and staged exp

 

Former worlds, Legera and Hegera, has been merged into Fixera - server where will be no any restarts and where experience is constant - 10x. Last two months shows, that more popular is a little higher experience rate, so that's why Legera has been permanently disabled, while Hegera will continue their work as edition server. Experience was a little lowered, so from tomorrow it will be:

update_hegera.png

 

This edition on Hegera will last until April 30, when all characters will be moved again into Fixera and their experience will be recalculated like this time. Hegera will keep it's server save hour to 07:00 A.M. while Fixera will be saved at 06 A.M.

 

2. New protection system

 

It's not possible to fully defend from all attacks, but we have implemented few solutions to protect our players as much as we can. From now, if you will be disconnected from the server, you character will be temporarily immortal, but the limit is one try per 2 hours.

 

3. New train system

 

On first edition if you wanted to train with Training Monks, you had to be connected to server. From this edition, training "on exit" will cost you soul points. 12h offline training costs 100 soul points, so 1 soul point will last you for 432 seconds of training. After that, you can regenerate your soul points by hunting monsters or by sleeping in bed like on RL.

 

4. Offline Messages

 

On server, where sometimes number of players are below 10, it's hard to catch everybody, to plan making quests together or hunting, so we have added offline messages. If you will send a message by command to a player and he will log into game while you are still online, message will show like directly from you, otherwise will be delivered from a postman.

 

5. Islands

 

Both starting islands, Rookgaard and Luminis gained a lot of new hunting places and houses, now there are:

  • Dwarf mines south from Rookgaard temple
  • Elf village south from mines
  • Rotworm caves under the Katana Quest
  • Tarantula caves deep in Posion Spider Cave
  • Amazon village east from Luminis city
  • Minotaur fortress north-east from Luminis city
  • Orc fortress north-west from Luminis city
  • Dworc caves near minotaur fortress
  • Apes west from Luminis city
  • Cathedral near Orc fortress
  • Scarabs on desert east from Elf village
  • Outlaws under the desert
Rookgaard now have 11 houses and a guildhall, Luminis 10 houses and also a guilhall.

6. New quests

 

We have added almost all outfit quests and modified to Rookgaard quests like The Travelling Trader (Rashid) Quest, Annihilator Quest, The Sneaky Joe (A Sweaty Cyclops) Quest, The Postman Missions Quest and we are still adding new.

 

7. Lotto system

 

We have changed numbers to choose to increase a winning chance. Now you have to pick three numbers from range 1 to 10.

 

Server is as always constantly in develop, so Bug Bounty is still on. Every player will receive a reward for finding bugs, just contact us if you will find any. Rest of content was moved to post below.

While being online, everyone can check their active stage by typing command /serverinfo. Both servers will be active only during first edition. Amount and activity of players from both of servers will shows which server will last for next editions and which will not be continued. Legera have its server save at 06:00 A.M CET and Hegera at 07:00 A.M. CET.
 
2. Starting islands
 
On our server, beside Rookgaard there is also island called Luminis. It's not the second city, but it have been prepared to be also starting island, so both Rookgaard and Luminis are "the first", starting islands, where you can find places suitable for lvl 1-5, 10-40, 60-100, etc. Every city have its own King and they are responsible to give players blessings, assign tasks and joining players to their cities. On Rookgaard King James has his chair where normally The Oracle is and in Luminis King John is north to the temple. For Legera free blessing have any player up to 15, and for Hegera up to 24. On level 16 (and for Hegera on 25) bless costs 2,500 gp for all 5 and is growing up to maximum value of 100k for all.
 
screen5.png
You have to, for example, belong to specified city, so King will listen you.
 
3. Outfits and addon bonuses
 
Because on there server there is no vocations, requirements for addons are fit to capabilities of islands so every outfit is possible to obtain. Full list of available outfits with bonuses is here http://rookgaard.pl/outfityand the list is still growing.
 
4. Quests
 
On the server there are every quest which is on RL Rookgaard (even item exchanging quests) with fully working Quest Log. Furthermore we have a lot more quests to enhance player equipment, buy better quality potions. We want to add in the future most of quests from mainland, which will be rewrited in some part, like Desert Quest, Postman Quest, Norseman Outfit, etc.

5. Shop and points
 
On server there is no sms shop and there will be no in the future at all. Players can gain points for use on website shop only for their activity. Points are granted for participating in events and raids, but also from Daily Login Bonuses. First day you will get 10 points, second 20, third 30 and so on up to max 140 points per day if player will keep logging in for 14 days in a row. If you will miss one day, you have to start from the beginning. 7-days premium rune was set to 150 points, so from simple math you can earn it for the first time in 5 days everyday login (10+20+30+40+50 points). Shop will be growing all the time so players will have a chance to change their gender or name, or even buy faster some items needed for an addon, but still only for points earned ingame.
 
rekl5.png
 
6. Raid and Events
 
rekl6a.png
 
For now, there is 9 unique boss raids and 8 area raids. Raids are randomly choosen during server save and are displayed on WWW http://rookgaard.pl/najazdyone hour after it shows in game. For participating in raids next to loot and exp profit you will gain some points for killing a boss depending on percentage damage.
 
screen4.png
 
7. Forum and contact
 
On server is simple forum where players can write posts and where are announced every news with details, more than on homepage. Beside that, players can write the messages using Facebook profile https://www.facebook.com/rookgaardpl/, e-mail address info@rookgaard.pl or just by PM in game to any member of support http://rookgaard.pl/support.
 
8. Editions
 
Server have been created with idea to create editions for every 2 months. At the end, every players with their equipment, skills and quests will be moved to "global" server where will be no resets, with constant exp and where show up players from every edition in the future. There is no decision if this server will be for the newest client or stay as 8.60, but there are also plans to start pure 11.0+ server next to 8.60 edition server. Players from Legera and Hegera during move to global server will get recalculated experience with reference to real experience, so noone will be harmed.
 
9. Map and spawns
 
On server beside full Rookgaard with all spawns there are a lot of custom places. I can't call myself a good maper, so experienced users will notice some familiar maps which shows here in the past in Download board and which are sticked together to make a harmony. So, to keep balance for both of islands we have added:
  • Dwarf mines south from Rookgaard temple
  • Elf village south from mines
  • Rotworm caves under the Katana Quest
  • Tarantula caves deep in Posion Spider Cave
  • Amazon village east from Luminis city
  • Minotaur fortress north-east from Luminis city
  • Orc fortress north-west from Luminis city
  • Dworc caves neat minotaur fortress
There is also an island called Glacius where you can find monsters like Mammoths, Frost Giants, all king of Chakoyas and after getting access, Ice Witches and even Crystal Spiders

10. Lotto system
 
Everyday at 9:00 P.M. CET on both servers on Santa Island there is mini-Lotto contest. Server randomly pick 3 unique numbers from range 1 to 27. In case if player will guess all three numbers (the chance is 1:2925 - http://m.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=27+choose+3&x=0&y=0),he will get 2,500 points to shop, 80k gp and signed Winning Lottery Ticked needed for example for one addon. If player will guess two numbers (with a chance 1:351), he will get 500 points and 10k gp, and for guessing one number (chance 1:27), he will get 3k gp. There is a limit to one ticket daily and you have to purchase it before 9:00 P.M. on the island and historical draws are here http://rookgaard.pl/lotto.
 
11. Highscores, library and other tabs
 
On server there is many tabs and statistics for players, for example how many player is online during a day (system is collecting amount of players every 3 minutes and making a table here http://rookgaard.pl/insomniac),quest makers http://rookgaard.pl/odkrywcy which counts every quest available and the list is still growing. There are training monks, but without an option to "exit" player, thats why amount of players is that low (before the change we had every day 20-30 logged in players, but 15 of them was AFK). Everyday during server save powergamers (http://rookgaard.pl/powergamers) and top powergamers (http://rookgaard.pl/top-powergamers) ranks are generated, so everyone can check how other players got experience and make a comparision.
 
12. History
1. The introduction
 
My adventure with Open Tibia Servers started more than 7 years ago on xinn server "Classic" and was limited only for Rookgaard. Simply I have prefered quiet life, cuz I didn't liked fighting in wars. After, there was a lot of other servers, like Huntera, Hexana, Brutal-wars, but also other servers with Rookgaard. As far I remember Rookgaard was only addition to any server, because "real" life was on mainland, so updates was focused almost always there bypassing the island. Then a thought was born in my mind to try something on my own and see if it is hard work to run the server. Unfortunately, my knowledge and skills were insufficient, and additionally beginning studies have forced me to abandon the idea and suspend play on OTSes for a few years.

2. Old love never dies
 
A year ago I have returned to play on various OTSes, but while I was away, a lot has changed. A lot of new servers with Rookgaard (which was less and less by the way) had his SMS shop, resets was every 3-4 months when administrators decided that server is not making any profit and the whole island was still abandoned from updates. Having proper skills and knowledge, I decided to try again. I have found, that domain rookgaard.pl was unpaid since 8 months, so I have purchased them and with help of friends I started 3 month of developing server.
 
screen2.png
 
3. Three points to success
 
Here I am in this place, (hopefully) offering you something different. First of all, on my server will be only Rookgaard. Rookgaard with the custom islands, but still with no vocations. Next, there will be no donations for real money. There is nothing to hide, where is only Rookgaard I don't expect 200 players at a time, so I don't need super-full-pro-high quality dedicated server, also where the map isn't so big. Third, there will be no VIP status account - for that there will be free and premium account. Players will gain points from Daily Bonuses, participating on events or raids, and then have possibility to buy premium account from website. This makes the server full free2play and no pay2win.
 
screen3.png
 
Server is constantly in develop and in connection with high dynamics of development we introduced Bug Bounty, so every player will receive a reward for finding bugs, which are less and less, but still. More info you can get directly in game from support, who is online most of the time.

Hello after a long break. The server has come so many new things over the last few months, compared to its basic version, that I had to rewrite a few things to improve the quality of the game. All changes were thrown on the fly, and now it's time to make a summary:

 

1. Guides have been added, at this point they are available 5 (How to start the game, Lotto Draw, PACC, Offline News, Mines), and every tutorial is available in Polish and English. The full list of all is in the top bar of the page. I would like to invite you to read, the new tutorial will be added on average every 2 days.

 

2. Quest Log has been fixed for all current server quests, including: Annihilator, various outfit Quests, Postman.

 

3. The shop has been expanded with new options (including PACC for 30 days) and the next ones are in preparation.

 

update012_1.png

 

4. The option of playing with an unactivated account is added. Just register an account for your email address and for 3 days you can without any limits create a character and play on the server. After this time, if the player does not activate the account by clicking on the link in the email, the account is blocked until activated. This will help newcomers test the server and convince you, without having to check your mailbox.

 

5. A live stream has been added for main square of Rookgaard, located under the Community tab on the website or directly at this link. Access requires login on the site.

 

update012_2.png

 

6. Offer of Obi, Sam, Rashid and Tom NPC have been expanded to include items requested by players.

 

7. Fixed a lot of minor bugs such as ignoring the blessings for characters without PACC, moving items by butterflies, formatting messages at NPCs on ships after Postman Quest, Rachel's spell casting, offline messages, use of beds with combat status, in-house commands, griffinclaw restoration, account recovery from the website, some monster spawn changes, and many other minor fixes.

 

8. I have created a better translation panel, so soon the whole site will be fully translated into English, and where possible, also in Portuguese to fully open to players from other countries.

 

In the near future I will focus on developing a PVP system, adding a cast system, fixing monsters, and a number of longer quests (such as Norseman and Hunter outfits, which will have additional prizes in addition to the addons). Further news on the site should also appear in English.

 

I would like to invite you to play the game and I encourage you to advertise the server, we would also be happy to hear all your comments and suggestions here, on the website forum or by email / FB.

Welcome to a little bit smaller news. Little, because a lot of things are in progress, but all are slowly coming to an end. In spite of this, a few things are already on the server:

 

1. Points were changed for some bosses. The Dragon gained 100 points more, and the Zahgigoth 50. Also the loot of non-standard bosses (Zahgigoth, Ezio Auditore) was slightly increased to encourage hunting. In addition, there are two unique new and three normal Tibia bosses in preparation.

 

2. Online and highscore listings show the experience gained and level with respect to values during Server Save. The change is highlighted in the yellow line in case of increase and red in case of player death and loss of experience.

 

update012_3.png

 

3. All bookmarks on the player statistics page have been optimized, so maybe with the current traffic on the page, the difference will be imperceptible, but this change will definitely pay off in the future. In addition, next large part of the site has been translated into English. In the near future news will also be available in English and the entire site will be fully available in two of the three languages (Brazilian version will be also available).

 

4. Minor bug fixes and "immunity" error have been corrected when monster enters different types of fields.

 

Another update should include a longer quest and addons for Nobleman, Wizard, and Oriental outfits.

 

See you in the game, new quests are on the horizon!

 

I would like to invite you to play the game and I encourage you to advertise the server, we would also be happy to discuss all your comments and suggestions here, on the forum or by email / FB.
