Do not assume that you speak for all just because you are the loudest voice; there are many who disagree that simply have no desire to waste words on you.

Ryzom Forge meeting report – February 17th, 2020

Storyline release

Tamarea (RT) – 20:38 UTC
Season 2, called "In Black against White", will begin on Wednesday, February 19 with its prologue, entitled "The one where you get informed".
During this prologue, which should last about a month, you will be able to interrogate (via right-click) all the NPCs that are not attackable and that do not belong to a tribe you come across, politely or bluntly depending on your reputation. Some of them will have nothing to say to you but others will tell you, in the form of rumors, more or less important information about recent events... which could also give you clues about those to come!
New rumors will be available from NPCs over time (one more every 12 hours). Your mission will be to gather all this information. A Storyline window in your mission book will allow you to follow the progress of your quest, through a progress bar. New bars will be added when informations about other themes will be available.
Then will start the first episode… But I won't tell you anything about it in order to let you be surprised ;)
Just know that the rumors (and thus the progress bars) will remain active even after the end of the prologue.

It's up to you if you want to take the floor on this topic!

Q: Will all NPCs be involved in this "Prologue", or only some of them whom players will have a list ?
A:
All non-attackable and out-of-tribe NPCs will react with you, but not all of them will have any information to give you!

Q: How many will be these rumor-spreading NPCs?
A:
To begin with there will be about thirty pieces of information to discover, then the number will increase as the days go by.

Q: Will only recents events in the History be rumored, or older ones too?
A:
Relatively recent events for the moment, but older ones may be added later, as rumors will remain. In the end there will also be several themes to discover, recent events are only the first.

Q: Will NPCs be able to spread false rumors?
A:
He he, NPCs are homins, so who knows! What if one of them spreads false rumors about one of your own characters, for example? ;)
Joking aside, NPCs can also spread rumors about player events afterwards. This way, your characters could one day be evoked by an NPC!
And, coming back to the prologue, the important information for the rest of the Storyline will be "real" rumours.


Q: Will players "only" be able to experience history/story in the game instead of reading it in the forum, or is Storyline a kind of scavenger hunt - with a goal to complete through clues gathering?
A:
Rumors will initially give you the opportunity to experience the story in the game and not outside on a forum, which in itself is already a significant change. In addition, the rumors will grow and lead to certain discoveries that will not just be information about the history, but will be very useful to access new gameplay or roleplay knowledge.

The next patch ⇒ https://app.ryzom.com/app_forum/index.php?page=topic/view/30283/1

Tamarea (RT) – 21:21 UTC
A client, data and server patch and a restart of the game server are planned on February 19th, 2020 in order to implement the following additions and fixes.

Change • A new loading screen will be used with the name of the Storyline season episode and the latest news about it.
Improvements & bug fixes:
• fixes on webig;
• teleport pacts have now a label to easily identify the destination;
• fixes on French translations for some occupations products;
• improvements and new option (in beta test) to locate fight Daily Missions objectives.

Adds
• new Rewards Delivery System (izams getting a boost and can now deliver more than letters!);
• lot of menus items (when you right click to made an action) have now an icon.

Storyline
• addition of a Storyline window information with current season and episode and the objectives;
• new loading screen displaying the name of the Storyline season episode and the latest news about it;
• new option to ask politely NPCs (or question roughly them if your fame with the nation is lower than – 30) which will open dialogs that will give you information sometimes useful, sometimes false or forgivable.

I give you the floor if you want to react!

Comment (Jorgensen): I like the idea of NPCs giving rumours that will lead to quests and discoveries.

New Ryzom website

Tamarea (RT) – 21:34 UTC
The new Ryzom website is being tested at this address: https://ryweb.larboard.net.
Some German translations and some links are still missing, but most of the job is done!
It is scheduled to go into operation in March.
If you have feedbacks and suggestions for improvement, you can share them now or later on the forum.

Your turn to have the floor!

Feedback and suggestions are given at the end of the meeting (after Cotare, in charge in the RT of the website, has joined) by Craftjenn (for the most) and Ashuleila. These are as follows:
• Too bad the events agenda is hosted by Google... But the new website looks good.
• The installers seems to be different per each system (so, less heavy in size ?).
• Good too: the site is responsive!
• I don't see a lot of SEO tags, on the other hand.
• And a suggestion: add a short paragraph about webapps.
• The calendar plugin refuses to translate itself.
On this last point, Tamarea, supported by Craftjenn, suggests getting closer to Ulukyn for a migration of the agenda of events to "our current free tool".

Recruitment

Tamarea (RT) – 21:42 UTC
We are looking for volunteers to join :
• Translation team: ES and RU translators/proofreaders;
• Computer Graphics team: graphic designers (3D / 2D);
• Support team: EN and FR CSRs;
• Dev/Ark team: developers, as well as volunteers who will be trained on the ARK creation tool;
• Level Design team;
• Event Animation team: to write and/or animate IG events.

That was the last topic for today! Next time, we'll tell you about the future billing service.

Je pense que les réunions ne se font pas le dimanche car le dimanche est le moment privilégié pour les event ou n'importe quelle rencontre informelle entre joueur sur atys (OP, réunion entre joueur etc). Donc oui, c'est dommage que les réunions ryzom forge ne se fassent pas un dimanche, mais si c'était le cas, ça bloquerait un créneau pour le reste.

Thank you for actually addressing the complaint instead of ignoring it or insulting me or simply censoring me. That's more respect than I've got in a while.

I would bring the scheduling up at a Forge meeting if it were possible for me to do so, but this thread is really my only chance to have any input.... or so I thought.

While Sunday may be a special day, I think that RL jobs are more important than in-game events. The implication that OP battles and socializing are more important than including anyone more than a time zone or two from the server is a bit demeaning. It sends a message that non-EU players are, at best, second-class. My thought was that by moving the meetings to a time when all could attend, Ryzom could be a bit more inclusive.

But the last few responses I got (other than your's) indicate that the exclusion of others is intentional. Being told to stop trolling, or simply having my words deleted is no accident.

Ce n'est pas une réponse officielle, je ne suis qu'un joueur.
Et oui, vous pouvez donner votre avis ici, il sera pris en compte. Vous ne serez pas le premier ni le dernier à faire ainsi. De plus vous avez l'ordre du jour de la prochaine réunion pour vous aider.

Can you please stop with that lie? Thank you.

There's always that someone who *has* to victimise themselves, over and over again, endlessly. I thought you had to work ;-)

Ryzom Forge, is as I understand it, a collaborative project between volunteers and Ryzom team (more volunteers). Its meetings are mostly informative, the real work happening on varied schedules behind curtains. You're such a cry baby for not realising none of them have to meet any of these ridiculously childish demands.

Ryzom is already very inclusive, they explicitly request players to volunteer for them. If you don't feel included its because you don't want to be.

Well... If you'd stop spamming the forums over and over again with the same pointless argument perhaps your word would have more of an impact. But all you do is complain about a pointless informative meeting (which isn't the only space where you get the information either, its posted a few days later here) and contribute nothing to either team or this one project.

Maybe shift your criticism towards actual ideas and stop nagging about a meeting which out of pure convenience is held at a particular time instead of constantly victimising yourself about this very fact.

Alternatively do go to work (apparently you are always working to not be able to join any team or attend a meeting) and stop wasting your precious free time on forums posts.

Or stop following these threads dedicated to volunteer projects and focus on the actual current game instead???

Just an idea.
Azazor
This is not an official response, i am just a player
.. and one that gets easily fed up of mimimi on forums.

Yours truly,

I am aware, but that does not change the fact that I am thankful that you have shown me more respect than it seems some other folks here are capable of. I asked to be heard, you listened, and that is very much appreciated.

Sadly, I suspect that you may be the only one that would consider anything I have to say, and therefore have reconsidered both my desire to attend meetings, and to have anything at all to do with Ryzom Forge.

Which confirms the original thesis.

You're just a drama queen with no interest to contribute beyond void complaining.




Pretty much like me. Ironic :-)

#173 [en] 

Gidget, honestly. You'd like to attend the Ryzom Forge Meetings. Good. But writing and bitching and repeating doesn't really help. If you're really serious about it, try to help the team first. Be there and get to know the team behind Ryzom. The more people from your time zone there are, the sooner it will be possible to change the times for Ryzom Forge Meeting. That's a fact.

Don't demand, demand and demand again, but get involved. The fact is, people work here and they do it voluntarily in their spare time. In order to change things here, you need to show commitment, just like any other group of people. Show that the game is not only a pastime, but that you also invest time. In this way you can rather change something. It is only a small advice :-)

Think about it: Who are you more likely to listen to in real life? Someone who is constantly grumbling or someone who goes along with the game?

Get in touch with Tamarea :-) Whether it's translations, proofreading or tests in the game. People are always needed.

(I am just talking as a player and of my expirience in the team, not as official statement :-) )

By saying this I highly doubt you have understood Gidget's point.

May I ask why? The point was that the RF Meeting should be happen in times when people from other time zones than EU can be there also?! Or did i misunderstand?
