In this thread, you will get to know Atlantis and our plans better. I will be posting updates, and you can go on and ask questions or something. Awesome!


Atlantis


Atlantis was the only German playerworld that has ever reached the "classic" status. Now it's off the list. Why? Because we are heavily working on it! Once German-only, Atlantis will become fully bi- or even multilingual, with German and English as the first languages to be added, and maybe more to come!

On this new run, we will move away from the RPG elements that were implemented on Atlantis when it was about to die. We will be going to go back to the old, classic feeling the playerworld had in the past, while still maintaining a fresh and clean look and feel. No dated content, everything will be new :)

http://images.nukedstudios.com/uploads/atlantis11405.png

So, what does that mean? It means you'll get a lot of awesome events, many challenging and cool quests and content to keep you motivated for a long time. Everything in a non-default but still Graal-ish setting with custom graphics, sounds and (hopefully *crosses fingers*) music! Basic systems will still be the default ones, so you'll be able to get into sparring just like you used to ;)


http://images.nukedstudios.com/uploads/atlantis21999.png

Just recently, we've made some of the first few systems available to the public, so you can go check them out and see what the rest is going to be like. Hop on Atlantis (graal://Atlantis) and check out some cool levels (the town is mostly finished), the health display and our day-night-system, coming with a super awesome time display!


More screens, information and updates to come. Stay tuned!

Little info and updates, but more screens!

52189
The new market place with an awesome statue. Wohoo!

52190
The radio house.

52191
The building where most of your sparring needs will be fulfilled.

52192
Redesigned "Colagruft", our oldschool place to hang out and idle for a couple hours; or days.

52193
A wonderful part of the local beach.

The minimap you can see on these screenshots is not yet released to the public, but will be soon. The time display you can see at the top is already available though :) So go check it out (graal://Atlantis)!

Hmm the only thing I can't say I like are the hearts. They seem overly large, but beyond that my main problem is the angles are so sharp that they don't really look that good. Also, they could possibly be offset from the side of the screen some and spread apart a little more.

The time dial could probably look better flipped vertically.

Theodor
01-12-2011, 01:14 AM
i consider reshaping the border of the hearts, although the edgy shape was made on purpose ;-) as for the offset, i think it's fine like that, also the distance between two hearts is good in my opinion..

you know, flipping the time dial actually isnt such a bad idea, i've just tried it! the middle thingy of the time dial will be replaced with a weather symbol anyways btw. ;-)

The main problem I think comes from the borders of the hearts being a bit too large. With that much of a border you could perhaps do something more ornate. As far as the margin and spacing I think it comes down to the fact that it doesn't align very well with the time dial. When I look at a HUD I look at the whole HUD, and the time dial sticks out way more than the hearts, and it just doesn't flow right in my opinion.

Edit: Seems like you didn't and the image went straight from Angelu to Nitron and from there into the church. Or at least I think it's been that way; correct me if I'm wrong. Plans to redesign the church already exist, though, so we'll take that into consideration.

The map (including the minimap) has been released to the public! Go check it out. Also, we added bush items and a rupee display, so you can go farm rupees and other things; I know you guys and gals love doing that!

Hearts have been updated, like Nitron already said. I'll post a screenshot in a second. I don't think the rupees are taking up too much space, though. I'd have said that a couple years ago, when I was loving minimalistic interfaces as well. But I've changed :p

They only work on v6 but I think it will revert to Arial if it can't download the font (i.e. player is on v5).

sorry i have to say this but i'm really pissed finding people who cheat / abuse glitches to "explore our server" beyond the limits we set. this will be a nice server made from HONESTLY working staff, for HONEST players only. no excuses, no exceptions. we will try our best to keep our community clean from dishonest players such as cheaters, hackers, bug-abusers, etc.

i hope, you agree with me on that one, crow? ;)

there will be plenty of options to get money. you can get money from chests in houses/hidden places/quests/etc.. or just kill other players and take whatever money they drop.. (later, there will be baddies too.. so)

don't worry, we got some good plans ;)

Small update: there are a couple new sounds for items (rupees and the like). I suggest you also check out the new bushes. Tell us what you think about the leaves effect! :)

Finally, we are interested in your opinion concerning the day-night-cycle. Some folks said that the night was too long. Right now, a full ingame day is "worth" two real hours. Of those two hours, the ingame nights last about 35 minutes. What's your opinion? Is that too long, should we make the nights shorter? Tell us!

Soala

If the day-night cycle ingame has a purpose, nobody should ever complain about it.
A full ingame day on Ruins for exemple is 6 hours in real life, which can be quite long but useful when you know what you can do at night..

If it's just a classic day-night cycle, then 2 hours sounds pretty good imo.

Revamped sword ganis and sprite sheets. Sword sprite sheets now only need two sprites: an icon (to be used later) and the "main sprite" which is then rotated in the gani. Awesome time saver, that's for sure :) We also added a neat motion trail to the gani. New sound, too! Check it out!

Sword seems fine to me but I think you should lower the opacity a bit when the blade swings, also I have some sprite bug with my sword when I slash facing right.

DustyPorViva
03-22-2011, 07:57 PM
Sword is much better :) You might want to look into adding a wave effect(kind of like in Crono's sig). Probably only need a single one on the middle frame for the right effect.

The sounds are still meh. They are REALLY invasive on the ears... like, really. It's a constant banging when I wear headphones and for footsteps this is very bad. Footsteps should sound so natural and soft that I can almost forget I'm hearing them.

For slashed bushes, it might be interesting to see the leaves fly up and then slowly fall(like a leaf falling from a tree). Right now they look like they're exploding.

You should apply for hosted. It's definitely worthy of it.

Crow

Well headphones really don't have much to do with it, I imagine the effect would still be the same with speakers. Try playing Ocarina of Time or some other Zelda game to see how footsteps compare.

Theodor
03-22-2011, 08:04 PM
to be honest, i cant make the soundeffects sound decent on BOTH headphones AND speakers. ive been doing them on headphones at first, then speakers. and the sounds are very silent compared to the graal standard walksound, and compared to all other sounds. but if you have a suggestion of a soundeffect, feel free to show us, because honestly, i dont think i can do better - i've been sitting on those damn sounds for like 1-2 days, its really hard. :S

Like I said even with speakers they sound a little too forceful. Games like OoT and such can probably be a huge help when trying to figure out a nice balance. They're very, very low and soft in those games and eventually you just stop hearing them unless you listen to them. But at the same time they add to the overall detail of the games.

yes big rip o_o gj skyld / [crow?]

I still think Crow is an updated version of Skyld... Skyld v2.0 BETA
More faster, efficient and with an additional language

You've got to consider that Skyld has lots of other stuff to do.

Edit: Update! Lightning & thunder have been added ^^

This is a very minor issue, but in the "sign"s of many npcs, I see some squares where other symbols should be; I'm pretty sure this means that the symbol cannot be found in the font or something

Are you on v6?

This is actually an issue with v6, mixed with another problem. The squares are line breaks. NPCs done wrong, basically (line breaks in the editor's script window). Will fix them soonish.

I am, and I have the same issue.

Edit: Crow just pointed it out.

Update: windows getting "darker" when the weather changes/it gets dark outside, and windows flashing when there are lightning strikes! Wohoo!

Nice touch, those details give it a nice feel to it. Unless of course you're afraid of thunder and lightning then a simple game might just stress you out. :D

I'm practically in love with the weather effects which I expressed to crow via a flood of love mail while enjoying a heavy downpour. Good work crow & co

Best weather system I've seen on Graal. Now all you need to do is make quests that are only accessible when it rains, etc. Then it'll be pretty AND useful for content pacing.

Hmm, a few opinions.

1) The rain noise inside of the buildings(sorry, only have the video to go by) seems... wrong. Maybe if you halve the volume of it it'd sound more appropriate. Just seems opposite when you go outside and hear a much softer rain.

2) I take it the black clouds when it's sunny are cloud shadows? To me it looks more like a black fog. Every single wisp of it is attached, and doesn't give the impression of individual clouds.

Ya I was going to do something similar. Have puddles dry up on sunny days, exposing underground areas, or water expanding when it rains giving new pathways and such.
