>_> Old account.
Just wanted to let everyone know that Zodiac will be going classic this Friday (August 18). It's a big accomplishment to be the first hosted server to move to the classic list. Thanks, everyone who helped us out. :)

Talk about quality checks. The gui is still a little confusing, monster graphics and their way of attacking could improve, and tileset could be better.

I won't start on the VAL2003 WANNABE LOL because atleast you tried to make it fun and good at the same time, and I like the server overall. Levels look alright, nice selection of weapons, and I like the party system.

Would be better to have the gui include some of the hotkeys..like the hotkey menu itself, class levels, etc.

The "W" menu also needs work, its all far too plain and looks underdeveloped. You want a nice level up style gui? Go back in time to Valikorlia in 2003. Ultimate. :(

How is this relevant to what I said?

If Zodiac in it's current state can be public might as well put babylon (which is in development) public along with zenkou and the rest. The standards are obviously quite low.

It's been like 10 mins since the server was shut down.
It was taken off the list, then put back on hosted for staff only.
I wonder what's going on.

coreys
08-19-2006, 01:59 AM
I beleive when a server is moved to classic its actually moved to a new server, under the same name.

Which is why classic admin accounts arent still "Admin-Playerworld#"...also would explain why trials can get on babylon.


And the day Zodiac goes classic is the day Stefan and Uniximad have officially lost all shreads of sanity they have left.

Theres no redeeming factors about Zodiac, and to boot it's a clone of Maloria.

Really? Cause when I got on Zodiac when it first went classic there was only 75 players.

And all servers get a huge player spike when they go classic. I guarantee it'll be down to like 40 by next week.

Not saying it isn't - but people normally don't leave there current server for another.

Zodiac will prboally consist of Era Players, and Maloria Players (due to Era resetting). Then of course you'll have about 5 players from GK, and about 5-10 from Zodiac. And about 10 trials on.

I'd think it'd hit a nice stable 50 pcount for awhile

At any rate, the server looks promising, and I wish them a lot of luck at success. They deserve it. It shows they have worked hard on it.

Zodiac is proof that server DO go classic I guess. although it didnt look as easy as it was for bravo evolved, and enigma, or zone.

I would be very interested in a Staff member who was staff of Zodiac the entire way to write up a report on what it took to get through ALL The inspections. Bad things and not, i think it would be a good perperation guide for others who want to follow in their footsteps.

Well actually zodiac went through alot. When we first started we were doing good till someone said it was all stolen so we removed it. Then basically everyone left and zodiac was dead.... Till my friend was like hey can I have zodiac so im like ok, gave him the admin account and never thought twice. When i went on one day we had some decent levels and alot of staff. Then one day he was fired for some reason so i took my account back. A guy name NeoXed came and made us a gmap. So we deleted all of our old levels.... We had no lats so their were no levels. One day a stolen level was uploaded and puppin came to say it was stolen. Then he decided to help us out. He made a full gmap (The one we used to become hosted). Then we started getting scripts going and such. I never planned zod to be like how it is. I was thinking of a server like era.... Wow i am off. Theres alot more to it but one time i felt like massing it and it took me like a hour to write. It was like 2 pages long (I should have saved it)

Best part of Zodiac: the rap radio station. Nothing like hearing Dr Dre singing about glocks and hookers.

For some reason I think this has to be violating some of Graal's rules.

what it took to get through ALL The inspections

There's an inspection for Hosted and an inspection for Classic.

You dont even have to be hosted to go classic, although I doubt any world would refuse hosted who was near qualifying for classic.

Some people argue the GST looking over your scripts for security is a separate inspection, okay, so a PWA inspection and a GST inspection...?

Doesn't sound so bad to me.

I'm starting to think Zodiac wasn't ready for classic.
I'm a level 36 ninja, and there are no skills left. That means I'm going to wind up leveling
to 50 without getting anything new, it's stupid.

Other classes like summoner and paladin have ONE skill.

_Z3phyr_
08-23-2006, 05:43 AM
I'm a level 37 Mage and I still have some things to get but I chose not to get them because I was smart enough to realize that once I got high enough in level I wouldn't have much to do. Everything in moderation, I say.


Then again if you're above level 35 at all by now chances are you've been playing constantly since the server was released, so rest assured that the staff didn't expect you to level up so damn fast and then ***** about nothing to do because you nerded your way to the top.

They've still gotta work out their kinks and it obviously wasn't easy to make what they have now so get off their asses about not having anything to do/new when you're near the highest level available because you've spent the past 3-4 days constantly killing **** and enjoy what they have to offer for the time being.

Sum41Freeeeek
08-23-2006, 05:53 AM
That's no excuse.
When going classic, "what we're working on is.." shouldn't be taken in to concern while
being inspected.
Also, it did not take "nerding" to level up so fast, some of my friends say when they join
parties they go from 1 - 20 in like, 2 hours. That's no where near "nerding"

So yeah, my point is, is that they should of had much more done before going classic.

Well, first of all.. If we're holding a 200+ playercount, we have to be doing something right.
Honestly, Zodiac will never be complete. We're bringing out updates every day, which in my mind is why we have such a high playercount.

I agree, there was a problem with leveling that was overlooked. A certain staff member screwed up a lot of baddy archetypes, which resulted in baddies that were level 30, 40, and 50 having the stats of baddies levels 10 and 20. We fixed it as fast as possible, but the damage is already done. Nothing can be done to help it.

It hasn't even been a full week. It's easy to hold people's interest for a while... but it's where your playercount stands after a month that shows the real validity. So no need to go bragging just yet. I mean, Zodiac is still fresh and new... for now.

Did you level down the people who got to such high levels through the bug/glitch/staff mistake?

People seems to easily forgett that ALL servers that just went classic will have the most playercount for 2 - 3 weeks, it ALWAYS drop after that.

But the question is; how much will it drop? I personally think Zodiac will keep 100 - 150 daily players.

I still think that if they waited and had people that played on hosted test new content

that things would of gone 10x better.
