@andrew bomy island's core gameplay is a lot different from iclassic, esp because of its economy

Ah ok. I don't think an economic difference is enough justification for another app. (If aiming for the iOS platform)

I recon it wouldn't be hard to create a game similar to graal/zelda using any modern game engine...

I'm considering an innovative approach to questing, where a portion of the questing content will be tied to the job progression. On Graal2001 there is a progression where it starts out difficult to make money and you have no equipment, but as you grind you are able to afford tools, and once you've done that you can craft more tools by mining, etc. My idea is to take the core idea for our crafting system and flesh it out to be deeper and allow for more things to be crafted in different ways, nothing innovative about that really. Then I will incorporate some items/weapons/tools that can be crafted or acquired via jobs to be necessary to enter or complete specific dungeons, in order of difficulty. The idea is not unlike the 3DS Zelda A Link Between Worlds, where in that game you could tackle the dungeons in any order. I want to make it so there is a difficulty progression and freedom to play the game in whatever order you please.

I am also highly considering implementing a system which will reward players for logging in consecutively once every 24 hours, and even give a bigger reward for 7 days in a row, etc. I could also implement daily objectives which pay x amount of gralats multiplied depending depending on how many days in a row the objectives would be completed.

Also another thing I'm looking at is a system which will add abilities and effects for specific hats. Think of it like Majora's Mask, where some hats/masks may have abilities and some don't. For instance if you're wearing a mining hat, maybe it would take less hits to break a rock or craft an ore, and the headlamp could have a light that can be turned on/off. Or if you have a chef's hat maybe you can make bread faster. None of this stuff would be that hard to accomplish.

Finally I have goals to implement smartphones to Bomy Island, but it's not like you think. Right now I am studying javascript every day and hope to create a companion app to the game that will allow players to check in while not via the client. This could include checking updates, events, daily objectives, etc. I ultimately want the game to have a lot of Animal Crossing-esque features where players feel connected to the game even when they're not playing it. This community aspect was integral to Graal2001 in those days and I think that is the only way to make it fully relevant going into the future.

There is now a second train that goes from South Bomboria to Santerrain through the swamps. I am considering also making it loop through Harmonia to The Slums in the future. The plan is to not have any stations that a train does not stop at on the overworld, which should be helpful and fun for new players to get around and explore.

There are also icons on the map that show where the train currently is, and signs at each station that tell you how long it will be before the train arrives.

Also for Christmas I am dropping presents all over the overworld periodically, not really an update but it's a good time.

Here's what the new map system looks like, showing off the new train route. Skyld and myself worked on this all day yesterday and we are super happy with the outcome. Skyld put together a custom system for train stations that calculates the amount of time the train takes between trips, so if I move any stations around it will always show the correct time. The map also tracks Manny and Paul or any other moving object on the overworld such as the trains in real time, so you can watch the train and see where it is.

Hello Graal,

Currently working on converting everything on Bomy Island to be able to use the amazing gani system for bodies Konidias created. If you're not aware what this is about, this means there can be over 20 different sprite attributes used for wearable, collectible, and trade-able gear. It's a lot of work but worth the outcome. The attributes are currently:

Quote:
back,
body,
shoes,
coat,
tunic,
belt,
head,
eyes,
neck,
hair,
hat,
gloves,
sword,
shield,
face1,
face2,
ears,
hold, // ?
bake, // ?
carry // ?
This will allow characters to have facial expressions to be used for new animated emoticons that will replace the default graal emoticons.

Here is an example of what the bodies look like, including a facial expression:



I was one of the people who worked on this system back in 2005/2006, and am really happy to be able to show everyone what we were able to accomplish. This is only a small sample of what has already been created, and there will be a lot more that I will be showing in the future.

I am tweaking jobs to be more polished and funner as well. Rock mining has been updated to have a better timing feel for the animation of hitting rocks. Baking will be updated so that players who want to press D faster to speed up the process can be rewarded for speed. I am also going to add the Scythe tool to expand the baking/cooking jobs by allowing players to grow, harvest and stock up their own wheat once they can afford it.

Cool stuff! Are the facial expressions frames built into the image file or are they layered over the head image? I kinda would like to keep using head826.png while having expressions that look right lol

Oh and as belt items don't forget tails heheh

The face and head are separate sprites, yes. So is hair. Everything on the list is a different sprite. As you can see though, this will not stop us from having any kind of look we want. Although many items will be wearable/collectible/equippable, faces and heads will most likely be user submittable (though subject to quality checking). Clothing may work in a similar way as how hats work currently on the server. There are also accessory items that are neither tools or clothing, such as umbrellas.

This can be done with the backs (backpacks) equipment, there are some creative ones that were made like turtle shells and wings.
