Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Terra Monsters] Guild Wars Proposal Discussion

Reading through the forum makes me think I should put something up when it’s ready, and we’ll just continue to tweak and improve it over coming weeks. I’m at a stage in testing where I’m nearly finished with my first war and now I need to think about prizes.

I think that everyone in the guild should get the same prize so long as they were active for at least one fight during the war. My preliminary list of prizes include:

50 Terra Dollars
48 Hours Ranch Helper
7 Days Ranch Helper
1 Premium Evolution Stone
3 x Evolution Stone Light

Any other prizes people would like to see in?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Terra Monsters] [Guide] The Fruit Machine

I’ll try a rebalance of the Slot Machine soon. Especially as Narwhalite will be available to win from it soon. The idea behind the slots is that if you go after Honor Points, you should be able to break even or even earn a little bit of Honor Points over time. However if your after Prize Stops, the ratio between Honor Points in and out, it should be around 50%

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Terra Monsters] Guild Wars Proposal Discussion

I think one way to combat low level users being picked on too much in Guild Wars will be to have a “Cool-down” period after they lose. During this time, the user will be able to reject new battle requests from a guild they are at war with. There will also have to be an element of team work, between the guild. Even so far as a lower level member of the guild can run past an enemy guild member and “lure” them to a place where the guilds higher level members are waiting.

Good discussion and when I start to code this system (probably on Wednesday), I’ll have a good read through this thread and make sure I take the best of everyones idea

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Terra Monsters] Guild Wars Proposal Discussion

Some of you may have noticed the new guild feature over the past few days. At the moment this is just a collection of people who can have a private chat together within their group and win weekly prizes for being in that weeks strongest guild.

Once this is all working correctly, I want to add “Guild Wars”

Guild A will challenge Guild B to a “War”. When challenged, Guild B will accept or reject the war and then the guilds will have 24 hours to fight it out to win the most PvP battles vs each other.

On top of this, there will be a “territorial dominance” feature, where for every hour a guild member is in the game (active + not in their ranch) they’ll get +1 point for them in the war.

Each member of the winning team of the guild will be able to select an item from the “mystery” box.

What do people think about this? Any ways we should improve it?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Terra Monsters] Guilds in Testing

Hello all,

I’ve spent this week coming up with a rudimentary guilds system. At present someone can:

- Create a guild
- Apply to Join a guild
- Accept / Deny users applications for a guild
- Win battles for a guild
- Leave a guild, boot another member from the guild

What I still want to add to this system include:

- Guild chat
- Being able to set names / privileges for users in guilds.
- A central “Guild Bank” where guilds will be able to store and distribute their cash.
- Weekly rewards for guild members.
- Being able to upgrade your guild with powers / extra spaces in your guild.
- Whatever else people would like to add!

As it is in testing still, users will only be able to create a guild by hitting enter in the game and typing “guildcreate”

It will cost 500 Terra Dollars, the first 3 guilds that are created though, I will send 1 month of free ranch helper assistance to.

Let me know what people think / what can be improved / where stuff doesn’t work. It’s quite a big new system thats being added so I’m fully expecting it not to go completely smoothly for the first couple of days!

Sorry about this Vexram – I tried coding this up just now thinking it would be easy, but has turned into a stinker. It will be the next thing I add though

The only way to obtain an Arcaneo is to purchase him in the Monster Shop.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Terra Monsters] Discussion about Elemental Strengths and Weaknesses

It has been brought to our attention that the game could do with a little rebalancing in terms of whats strong or weak vs what.

We’ve come up with these 4 charts for strengths and weaknesses – which one do people feel is best?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Terra Monsters] What Happened + What we've done about it

terramo – I can see your account in Skyward, you should be able to login again now?

@ All the others – if you can’t find your account – Please contact me and give as much as the following information as you can:

- Last Map (A rough idea will be fine)
- If you had any extra ranches (this will speed up finding you greatly)
- The pets you had and an idea of their levels
- What your avatar looked like
- The last quest you remember completing.

I’m currently working through a queue of around 100 accounts. Accounts that have made it to at least Verdane tend to have a good chance of being found.

The server numbers that the recovery app refer to just say which computer stores your data

The system is set up with a gateway server, a realtime server (which everyone connects to and allows people to see each other), a credits / subscription server and all the player data servers.. At the moment there is only 1 world for Terra monsters for all

I’ve also had some messages requesting that I prove that backups are now working:

The tables on this database are backed up twice daily and there’s a back up to the back up system…

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Terra Monsters] What Happened + What we've done about it

I’ll briefly explain what happened. Firstly our back up software started failing on Wednesday but did not notify me that the backups it was now making were empty. The back up software only holds the last 6 backups and was overwriting the working backups. On Friday, our gateway server was hacked meaning the part of the system which links users to their accounts was wiped.

What I’ve now done to sort this issue is:

- Close the security hole that existed allowing the hacker to get in.
- Fix the issue with the back up software
- Created my own custom backup software to run redundantly alongside the main back up software.
- Created the Account Recovery System

We have separate records for users who have previously bought Kreds so we can assist those users in getting their Kreds back. The Account Recover System is much better at finding users who had at least 1 extra ranch.

I do take full responsibility for what happened and cannot apologize enough to all of those effected. Hopefully the above measures will hopefully bring back some faith in our system.

Sorry about that one CycloneM104 – Evolutions should now work again. Move the creature you want to learn a new move to slot 1, then hit enter in the game and type: learnmovenpc

This is testing a new feature where an NPC will be able to relearn moves that it missed.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Terra Monsters] Has Your Account Been Reset? Read this!

The number of users who are below level 13 is in the 10’s of thousands so allowing those accounts to be found would mean it wouldn’t work for anyone at all.

If you are one of those effected, please send me a message with how far you had got and I’ll send you a compensation amount in Terra Dollars and Honor Points

Ok, I’ve now uploaded a new version – All users have access to the ranch helper for this week. To those who have already purchased the ranch helper and feel that this is now unfair – You will all get an additional 30 days of ranch helper for free after this week.

Also now users who have purchased at least one ranch no longer need to enter what map they were on last to recover their accounts.

Sending a pm to you now vtsxbr

And @ all – I’m determined to make up for the events of the past 24 hours. Whilst we were attacked from someone else, I do take full responsibility for what happened as I should have been doing more regular checks on the back up system.

Firstly if people spent Kreds and they’re missing anything, contact me – I’ll make things right.

Secondly – if your unable to recover your account, send me a message and I’ll see what I can do for you

incitfulmonk21 – You don’t have to remember exact information, use the recovery system to try a few different maps that you could have been on last. If you can remember how many Terra Dollars you had, that would help speed things up greatly.

Lots of people do seem to be recovering their accounts now but I do realise there is a long way to go too.
