Patch 882 2021-09-28

PATCH DAY!!! ATYS WILL BE CLOSED THE ENTIRE DAY!

A client, data and server patch and a restart of the game server will be performed on Tuesday September 28th 2021 in order to implement the following changes, additions and fixes:

Ryzom database

- The database of Ryzom will be moved to another server. This operation will take some time, thus the patch will have an unusually long duration (potentially taking all day).

Kitin's Lair occupations

- The 4 occupations which gives missives to be executed the Kitin's Lair (Larvester, Medic, Butcher and Scrollmaker) are moved into the Kitin's Lair.
- Addition of icons on the map to display locations of occupation NPCs.

Marauder mini-camps

- Addition of 3 Marauder mini-camps to complete the series of 4 scheduled. There will now be one mini-camp in each nation.
- In regions having a mini-camp, the Zinuakeen will be moved into the camp.
- All the mini-camps get stables and a mission giver.
- Addition of icons on the map to display the location of the mini-camps.

Boss refactoring

- Boss refactoring entering the second phase: The new boss system is implemented to Primes Roots, and Nexus gets a more normal respawn time for bosses.
The next step will be the generalization of the new system to all of Atys.


The Ryzom Team remains at your disposal for any additional information, and wishes you all the best!

Is it possible to have the technical reasons why this operation requires so much time please?

In a classic situation, it would be possible to use MariaDB's standard replication to populate the new server while the old one is still in use, then close the old server and set the new one as the main one. Such process would greatly reduce downtime.

Because I cannot imagine a situation where this suggested process cannot work, I'm really curious about why this isn't possible on Ryzom.

Because they don't use the automation tools that were originally built for Ryzom. They're configuring everything manually, and through hardcoded scripts.

Moving the game data is just moving a folder from the old Backup Service server to the new one. (Although, it's easier to just keep the BS on a separate cloud VM, it doesn't need to be on the dedicated game server box. That way you can just discard the dedi anytime.)

No idea about their proprietary web apps.

Last time I transfered my 5 shards to a new server it took about an hour tops.

I imagine some testing is involved as well as bandwidth limitations during replication? Are you all moving to aws or azure by chance? Or am I asking a stupid question that has been answered a hundred times already?

Here are some news: the database has been migrated as planned, which was to allow us to update the web server with less impact on the game.
But during the maintenance reboot of this web server, OVH alerted us of a critical flaw on the RAID disks and that an intervention was to be expected.

Not wanting this intervention, which could only be done tomorrow and would have taken at minimum 2 days, to block the game even more, we decided to rent a new server and to move the data there.

This is now done but there are still many checks to be done before reopening the game server.
That's why Atys will only be reopened tonight or tomorrow morning (European time zone).

News from Ulukyn, 02:00 UTC/04:00 CEST)

The Webig seems to be pretty much working. We checked the teleportation for Rangers and Marauders and it works.
The Wheel of Fortune has a problem, it only gives XL tokens as a reward (for a basic token bet). But this is not a block to reopening Aty as we can activate it later.
The Storyline missions and the daily missions have not been tested yet.
The Ryzom API backup is corrupted but this is not very important since it is just a cache and can be regenerated.
We should be able to open Atys on Wednesday (today), then fix the last problems one by one.

The new boss sytem does not work very well with the new server version, so we set it offline until it's fixed.

2 days of Premium time offered!

The game having been inaccessible and then very disrupted since the September 28th patch, we are pleased to offer you 2 days of Premium time as compensation!
This compensation, which will be activated shortly, will be available for one week via a window on the WebIG.
