Help Save Delteria.
 
Delteria needs YOU
Delteria is very much in dire need of quality developers. It is no secret at this point that this project has been under development for years now. Quite honestly, we've suffered many setbacks during this period. However despite such shortcomings, in some fashion or other, we've managed to hold things together and complete a large amount of work in the process. We currently have only a few staff members, largely due to real life obligations. The hour is late at this point, and, we require the strength of the Graal community to see things through to a successful re-release. Delteria's levels and gfx are nearly complete as a whole, but we are dramatically lacking quality script help and could use a gani member or two.
What Delteria is looking for specifically
Scripting Dev Team Members: Join Delteria's NAT department if you believe you possess an above-average knowledge and comfort level with GS2. Depending upon your activity, trustworthiness, and skill level, you will be working on things ranging from Events to Core Systems and Sub-Systems.

Levels Dev Team Members : Join Delteria's LAT department if you believe you possess an above-average ability to work with custom tilesets and produce aesthetically-pleasing results. Depending upon your activity, trustworthiness, and skill level, you will be working on things ranging from Events to main overworld level components.

GFX Dev Team Members: Join Delteria's GFX department if you believe you possess an above-average ability to create quality, custom works of pixel art, and are able to match or closely match our default GFX style.

GANI Dev Team Members: Join Delteria's Gani department if you believe you possess an above-average ability to create quality ganis. Familiarity with gani scripts is also recommended though is not required.

Administration: For certain "trusted" members of the community (globals, certain classic world administrators, select-few others) I am interested in having an assistant to help manage projects provided the turnout for applicants creates necessary demand. This would greatly help ensure that work can be assigned, completed, and managed in a timely fashion and would greatly relieve some pressure as I have extensive real life obligations and cannot simply be on "all the time."

Notes: As most of our Level and GFX work is already completed, I can't stress enough that I am looking to hire NATs and Gani artists almost-exclusively.
What is Delteria
Delteria continues to be a world where quality sparring, PK'ing, and events is to be expected. As we move toward an initial re-release, the goal is to maximize community immersion by way of assuring diverse gameplay and customization options for the players. We hope to achieve this by offering a hybridized combat system, allowing for classic activity to take precedence on the majority of the overworld while questing becomes more of an exciting, action-rpg adventure that will make forming parties a necessary function. This sort of atmosphere fosters activity for all player-types and ultimately will provide a way to unify those types and leave many functional aspects of the server to be decided by the players themselves. For clarification: The world will use classic swords everywhere EXCEPT quests and specific events initially, though we may try enabling our quest weapons everywhere except for the Port Town. We also plan on having extensive, customizable guild support concerning events and guild property.

Stop by Fishing Town, pick up some gear and get started. The fish you catch will be able to be sold at the Port Town market in the future.

Again, if you are a quality developer, please lend a hand and lets not have Delteria perish. I feel it would do a strong disservice to the community if we were all unable to play some of these fun things together.

It's been a while in the making, but worth every second of it. I really hope more people jump onboard to get it done a little faster.

I really like the Faerie Town screenshot, nice looking tileset.

warp2ukew 02-22-2010 08:28 AM

Wish I had any time to spare, i barely logon client as it is...

It's a damn shame that noone is willing to help out one of the servers that helped define the game, not only that but looks visually orgasmic

Stop making your inevitable to fail UC servers and help out Delteria, people.

smirt362 02-22-2010 11:28 AM

Damn that looks really nice, and I mean REALLY NICE. I love the tilesets, baddies, weapons, everything. A step above everything else I've seen on graal.

Crono 02-22-2010 11:34 AM

god damnit all those tiles gone to waste, you really need a better outside LAT and its a shame i dont even open the level editor anymore. FML

DrakilorP2P 02-22-2010 01:28 PM

The screenshots are rad.

cbk1994 02-22-2010 01:52 PM

Chat bubbles look stupid, some of the levels are weird, but almost all of the tiles are god awesome. Nice work and good luck finding people.

zephirot 02-22-2010 02:36 PM

Wow, rep +.
I hope you will find the peoples you're looking for.

Dnegel 02-22-2010 03:00 PM

The graphics are really sweet!

Imperialistic 02-22-2010 04:34 PM

I offered the other day to help with the levels, and you told me there is no point, since Delteria is dead.

DustyPorViva 02-22-2010 06:24 PM

I agree about chat bubbles. They're totally unnecessary on 2D games, and especially Graal. All they do is waste resources and clutter the screen.

Regarding chat bubbles see my response to Dusty below.

Thank you for the compliment in any regard.

I was really interested in whether or not people feel this way, as I tend to agree. We did get the resource usage down to being almost nonexistent, however if this is simply players do not want I am happy to get rid of them altogether. Currently, you can just choose to toggle them on/off. :)

What I said was that Delteria is currently 'dead' so hiring only LATs when we're in need of scripting help the most might not be prudent. If you're willing to accept that and still wish to work on levels for me I have enough work to keep you busy. :)



Again I would REALLY appreciate any scripting assistance that can be provided from people on Chris and Dusty's level. Any help at all is better than none.

dmhabe 02-22-2010 07:02 PM

Looks amazing Cloven, I hope you find the help. This could easily be the best playerworld :D

MysticX2X 02-22-2010 10:02 PM

Hope you get the help you need, Cloven.
