Welcome to Project Hybrasyl! Our aim is to create a well-documented and
exceptionally accurate private server
for Dark Ages. Look around, make an
account, and join us sometime.
Hybrasyl 0.6.0 / 0.6.1 Released!
posted by Hybrasyl Admin on 2018-03-04
Following the soft release of
0.6.0 (Bruce) in January, the first bugfix series 0.6.1 is here! It squashes a number of bugs related to statuses and casting.
0.6.0 added a huge amount of new features and bugfixes itself, including:
- Full status support (poison, sleep, buff/debuff, etc) added
- Castable support is now complete, with the notable exception of scripted castables
- Loot tables / loot sets implemented
- NPCs now support learning/forgetting skills/spells, selling/buying items, and sending/receiving parcels
- Support for elemental damage has been implemented
- Lua scripting is now supported (IronPython has been removed entirely)
- Cooldowns for castables have been implemented
- Many, many, many XSD/XML updates
- Fix packet throttling implementation
- Full support for monster spawning with variance (stronger or weaker monster) support
- Add support for heal/damage modifiers, reflect chance / intensity, element overrides (offensive/defensive)
- Monsters now support a rudimentary AI for moving and attacking
- Improved chat command support with a rudimentary plugin architecture. Also, /help now works!
- Begin to add support for multithreaded game logic / packet handling (controlmessages only, currently)
- Add a secondary HTTP listener for API calls for service requests (shutdown/restart server, etc)
- All extant network bugs should be fixed - assail not working, desynched sounds, etc
- When a significant number of monsters die simultaneously (>15) on a crowded map, a burst of server-wide lag could occur
We will be making a new launcher available in the next few days, so
stay tuned (please note: the existing launcher still works for
connecting to our staging server).

Project Update - August 2017
posted by Kedian on 2017-08-30
Just a quick post to say - we are in fact, still alive!
Work had slowed down significantly since the beginning of the year, with numerous other commitments making it hard to make sustained progress. Marriage, moving across the country, yadda blah. These things occupy time.
But we are indeed, still here and still working.
The release of 0.5.6
should happen within the next few weeks, based on testing. We believe we have fixed a serious bug that was making it nearly impossible for the staging server to remain online for long periods of time, and we are very close to having functional, albeit barebones, AI and monster support.
We have also added training (learn/forget skill / spell) support for NPCs. Our hope is to get the server to the point where it will support basic gameplay in the next few months.
The release of 0.5.6 will also be coordinated with a server wipe in staging. Sorry, but them's the breaks. We can't guarantee characters will continue to exist with any regularity until we decide to launch to production. But: staging should be far more stable and regularly accessible than ever before!
Future updates will bring a number of new features:
- Basic monster AI and monster spawning support. Spawning support is completed and working - we now need to make mantises, vipers, and mice actually, you know. Do stuff. Move around. Bite things. Say "Sssssss"'.
- Starting village! Get ready to put your Boots on, equip your finest Dirk, and do some crypt walkin', at long last!
Hybrasyl Server 0.5.5 released!
posted by Kedian on 2016-12-20
Hybrasyl 0.5.5, nicknamed Devlin, has been released
! Spell targeting, cast lines, creature and player death, status support (poison, sleep, etc), monster spawning, spell and skill usage, and more are included in this release. A lot of progress has been made towards making Hybrasyl a viable, playable game!
Hybrasyl 0.5.0 released!
posted by Kedian on 2016-05-25
Hybrasyl 0.5.0 released!
After a significant hiatus - Hybrasyl 0.5.0 has been released! Hybrasyl 0.5.0 brings a number of changes to New Temuair - changes you won't necessarily see, but build a strong foundation for a solid, scalable future.
0.5.0 completely re-implements how Hybrasyl stores its data - instead of MySQL, XML is now used to store world data, and Redis is used to store user data and more. A number of bugs in item display and exchange have been fixed, and support for grouping, forum boards, mailboxes, assail, and citizenship were implemented. Hybrasyl's networking was also completely re-implemented from the ground up, and we have implemented damage, creature support, spawning and more. Hybrasyl also works with all current client versions in the United States (7.41).
For a full list of changes, please check the changelog
We also have a new launcher
which you can download and use to connect to Hybrasyl!
Hybrasyl Project gets Discordant!
posted by Kedian on 2016-05-10
We have set up a Discord server for users and developers of Hybrasyl, to learn more about the project and stay in touch with other members of the community. You can join us at https://discord.gg/0ziUhzij2THyYHXK
Stop by and say hello - and make your ideas heard!
We're still here, and work is still progressing on the 0.5.0 release. Stop by and get a status update!
Hybrasyl is now free software!
posted by Kedian on 2015-03-28
After long consideration and discussion, we have decided to release Hybrasyl's
source code to the world. It was always our intent to release Hybrasyl as free
software, and we have decided that the time is right to do so.
We have created a new Github
organization for the Hybrasyl Project, and we have released several
repositories which contain all of the extant code related to Hybrasyl. In
addition, we have been extremely careful about securing copyright from
contributors; all of the server copyrights are held by the Project, and kojasou has graciously agreed to
license both the launcher and the (still in its infancy) Hybrasyl world editor
as free software. We believe this will allow the project to thrive and provides
a solid foundation for future development - as well as allowing the Project to
vigorously defend Hybrasyl's licensing.
Speaking of the license: All of the code produced by the Hybrasyl Project is
covered by the same license - the GNU Affero General Public License,
version 3 (AGPLv3). We believe this is a perfect license for Hybrasyl, but, a
few words about the AGPLv3: it is widely considered to be the strictest free
software license in existence. By running any of the code in the Hybrasyl
Project, you fall under its licensing terms - meaning, if you download and use
Hybrasyl to provide a server to other users, you must make its source
available. This also means that any derivative works (changes you make) are
also covered by this license, and must also be free. We believe this is fair:
it means anyone who writes code for Hybrasyl is helping to build the commons,
and advance the goal of Project Hybrasyl: to develop and release a complete and
well-documented Dark Ages server emulator. For too long, the projects in this
space have foundered, collapsed, and been rewritten over and over - we are seeking
to end this cycle once and for all.
It is our intent to release this software to the world in the hopes that it
will foster a more rapid development of Hybrasyl and encourage other Aislings
all over the world to bring their time, energy, and thoughts to the project.
With that being said, today, we are releasing four GitHub projects to the world:
- Hybrasyl Server - Written by
Kojasou and Kedian, this is the server itself, written in C#. Due to the fact
that Hybrasyl still uses MySQL, you will need a version of Visual Studio that
supports MySQL for Entity Framework - as of this writing, that means
Professional. We apologize about that in advance, and as we are moving away from
MySQL as a data store, we hope that this requirement will eventually disappear.
- Hybrasyl Editor - Written by
Kojasou, this is a proposed editor for Hybrasyl. We intend to develop this as
a tool for world editing that will talk to an active Hybrasyl server. None of
that functionality exists yet. Contributions are welcome!
- Hybrasyl Launcher - Written by
Kojasou with small contributions from Kedian, this is the launcher tool that
allows you to connect to Hybrasyl.
- Ealagad - Written by Kedian,
this is the Rails administrative interface to Hybrasyl. It provides an
ActiveAdmin interface for many of Hybrasyl's data models (maps, items, etc). It
is in the process of being deprecated in favor of YAML files for most static data.
We have also created two new Google Groups to facilitate discussion:
- Hybrasyl Users - a
group for those who want to run Hybrasyl, or who are interested in discussing it.
- Hybrasyl Developers - a more
technically oriented forum for people who are actually interested in helping to develop Hybrasyl.
We can't wait to hear from you! Fork
us on Github
and start contributing today!
Hybrasyl 0.4.0 released!
posted by Kedian on 2014-10-01
Hybrasyl 0.4.0 has been released to production!
This release implemented reactor scripting, dialog support, natural regeneration, exchange (player trades), fixed (e.g. correct) accessories handling, and contained a number of bugfixes.
For a full list of issues resolved, please visit the releases page
Hybrasyl 0.3.5 released
posted by Kedian on 2014-08-23
Hybrasyl 0.3.5 has been released to production!
This release focused primarily on a number of bugfixes and new functionality relating to Hybrasyl's ability to scale and implement new features. There have also been a lot of new armor and weapons added. For a full list of issues resolved, please visit our new releases page
where we will be keeping track of upcoming and past releases. In the future we intend to be far more open with our development cycles and processes!
Hybrasyl pre-alpha goes live
posted by Heiler on 2014-08-08
We've gotten a lot of questions about whether this project is still ongoing as no major news has been announced. To address your concerns, we've decided to open Hybrasyl up to the general public.
In this build you'll notice there is still a lot (read: everything) missing. NPC's spawn, but won't talk to you. Monsters don't spawn. There is no method of getting skills or spells yet. In short, the game is still largely unplayable - but you will be able to log in as you please and see our progress, as well as report any bugs you might stumble across so we can get them taken care of sooner, rather than later.
In order to make the world interactive, we have added simple slash commands to create things, teleport, cause things to happen, and change things about your character. These are obviously things that won't make it into the finished product, but for now, will allow you to have some degree of interaction with the world. See the list at the bottom of the page.
From the launcher, you'll notice there are three servers to connect to. Localhost should not be used, staging is where new changes will occur before going to production, and production is where your progress will save and the game will be played. Both servers are available to connect to for now, but most players should connect to Production by default.Here is the launcher you will need to use to get in. Please remember to run as administrator.
Once you have created a character, log in, and use the following slash commands:
/gold <amount> - give gold
/teleport <map> <x> <y> - go to X,Y on the given map number
/teleport <player> - Teleport to a logged in player
/effect <number> - Show specified effect on player (e.g. /effect 35)
/sound <number> - Play the specified sound effect centered on current player
/music <number> - Play the specified map music
/mapmsg <msg> - Send a message to everyone on the map
/class <class> - Change class to the specified class
/level <level> - Change level to the specified leve
/guild <name> - Change guild to specified guild name (no real effect yet)
/title <title> - Change title to specified title
/item <item> <count> - Create specified number of items in inventory (e.g. /item Shirt)
Please keep in mind that not all items have been added yet. There are several thousand, so you will generally only find pre-medenia things and accessories, for now. If you run into any problems or find any bugs, please let us know the details via our facebook page, which you can find here
Hybrasyl 0.3.0 update
posted by Kedian on 2013-12-31
After a long hiatus, work is ongoing on the 0.3.0 branch of Hybrasyl. We thought we should share what
we’re working on, to let people know we are still here and still working on it!
- Scripting support
- In Hybrasyl 0.3.0 IronPython is fully utilized for NPC &
item scripting. A generic API has been exposed for script usage
and currently supports a variety of API functions for creating
dialogs and dialog sequences (groups of dialogs), dialog branching
(starting different dialogs based on input or script logic),
giving/taking items, gold and experience from a player, and
more. Currently, NPCs have handlers for click events as well as
when objects (such as players, items, or monsters) enter their
area of interest. Still to come are reactors (special tiles that
respond to events) and support for items responding to various
events (such as being used, dropped, etc).
- Live reloading
- Progress is ongoing to support live reloading - integrating
changes into a live server. At the moment, scripts can be
dynamically reloaded with a slash command (/scripting). In
addition, a feature has been implemented to get the status of a
script (if it had any compilation or runtime errors), which is
displayed to a client using an in-game popup window. Hybrasyl will
eventually support reloading maps, world maps, and more.
- Dialog support
- Related to the first item, Hybrasyl 0.3.0 includes full dialog
support for option, text input, and simple (just text)
dialogs. Work on shops is ongoing.
- Dialog scripting
- Dialogs can now implement callbacks, generic scripting functions
that will fire after the dialog is displayed. In addition, dialog
sequences can implement prechecks - a callback that will run
before the sequence is actually displayed.
- Gold handling
- Gold now exists in Hybrasyl, and can be acquired, dropped, and so forth.
- Reusable dialogs
- Also included in 0.3.0 is the ability to set up and register
dialog sequences that can be shared between NPCs. This allows
sequences to be easily reused between multiple NPCs.
- Minor improvements
- Display time since last login for players | use standard folder
in My Documents for storing Hybrasyl data | update MySQL Connector
.NET to 6.7.4 | better exception handling | better logging support
| EF 5 support now uses config files for MySQL connection vs
App.Config | lots of bug fixes
Latest and Greatest
posted by Kedian on 2013-05-03
Acht and I have labored to bring a number of new features to production (
- Doors are implemented and working. In addition, Hybrasyl's doors use map information to work (similar to how the client knows something is a door: by consulting a huge list of sprites) so no additional data is needed. If a door sprite is anywhere on a map, the door will function correctly.
- Signposts function correctly.
- NPCs spawn and display correctly, and are able to be notified of players entering or leaving their area of interest.
- Basic citizenship is implemented, along with spawn points. If you belong to a nation, you'll login there (e.g. for Mileth, you spawn in the inn).
- Music / sound / spell effect support.
- Emotes are implemented.
- Who list is implemented along with support for colored names.
- Many bug fixes.
Bug fixes & other work
posted by Kedian on 2013-04-27
A number of bug fixes and other new features have been implemented in
- Collision errors are fixed! You can no longer walk into other people, or F5 into walls, or etc (HYBSRV-4)
- Profiles are implemented! Clicking on others and yourself displays the correct titles, equipment, and other goodies. (HYBSRV-10)
- A few nasty bugs related to item weight have been fixed (HYBSRV-25)
- Distance calculations for pickup/drop are now equivalent to what you would expect
- Metafile support (thanks to kojasou) - correct support for client side data for skills, towns (nations / citizenship), spells, etc
Looking forward to the immediate future, we will be starting to implement support for NPCs and dialogs, which will also dovetail with the work to implement full scripting support in Hybrasyl (for those interested, we will be implementing support for Lua using LuaInterface).
Confirmed and proposed changes to content development
posted by Heiler on 2013-04-25
Alright, this post is gonna be absolutely huge. As always, any questions,
comments, discussions, threats, rants, or free pizza can be directed to
our subreddit or
As an ongoing part of our work, we are attempting to fix things that are broken
in our predecessor and not bring them into our game. This covers a lot more
than we had anticipated however, and we continue to conclude that a myriad of
gameplay elements are broken. That said, this news post is a culmination of
discussion to date about things that are broken and are definitely being fixed,
as well as some things that have already been fixed, and some things that are
up for debate and/or controversial.
Item changes were listed in a previous news post
- Yes, hybrasyl is and will always be free.
- There will no longer be a profanity filter. However, different
jurisdictions will be permitted to enforce their own laws against their own
definitions of profanity.
- Stat resets will be possible, but costly, once level 99 has been reached.
- Learning skills and spells belonging to a previous class will be possible.
The idea is to eliminate the need for things like adorations to sub useful
- Banks will function on a per-account basis instead of per-character.
- Gold will also function per-account.
- Accounts will be expanded to allow many more characters. The exact number
is not defined yet, but the idea is to eliminate the need for more than one
- Age-based rewards (for example, legendary aisling) will be enacted on a
per-account basis, not per character.
- Names that are created but never added to an account will be deleted after
a few weeks.
- Going above max base stats will no longer be possible. Items will
still be able to give you higher than max stats, but adorations and anything
else that gives stats will no longer add stats to one that has reached max.
Dungeons, hunting, and leveling in general
- Dungeons will no longer feature auxilary floors; that is to say things like
floor 2-1, 2-2, 2-3, etc. All dungeons will be remade to match the format of
CR, i.e. floor one, floor two, floor three, etc often with multiple entrances
- To compensate for the above change, spawns may be increased as needed.
However, with a projected lower population than these floors were created to
deal with, that will probably not be necessary.
- The experience penalty from multiple group members will be removed, to
encourage social play instead of discourage it
- An experience bonus will be added to groups that feature at least one
of each class
- Social interactions such as politics, religion, and the arts will be
given realistic experience bonuses so as to encourage bringing these types of
play into the fold, as well as allowing players who prefer to engage in the
social to still further their characters.
- Every item dropped from monsters will have a purpose of some kind. At
the very least, they will be able to be sold to a vendor and thus worth picking
- To compensate for the repetitive long walks through major hunting
grounds, new "elevator" quests will be added to each zone with such a walk.
These quests will require proof that you've ventured into these depths yourself
several times, and after completion, will enable fast travel to these
- Ascension will be reworked to be considerably faster; including the ability
to dump all or a portion of your experience directly into either HP or MP as
opposed to clicking endlessly. The cost will remain the same, however, and
large chunks of experience will be factored into the cost identically.
- Similarly, stat buying will be possible in a much more expedited
manner, buying several stats or all possible stats at once.
- Ascension and buying stats will be completely disassociated; buying
stats will cost experience directly, and ascending will not be a part of the
process at all.
- There will be no rangers in Hybrasyl.
- To account for the game being completely free and account creation having
little to no restriction, clout will be limited per character per day. That is
to say you will only be able to be voted for an as-yet undetermined
amount of times per day, in an attempt to do away with clout farming. Ten votes
per day is the current limit.
- To compensate for the above limit and the projected lower population,
overall clout requirements will be lowered.
- Social interactions such as politics, religion, and the arts will be given
realistic experience bonuses so as to encourage bringing these types of play
into the fold, as well as allowing players who prefer to engage in the social
to still further their characters.
- New players will no longer start the game as Mileth citizens - pending
further discussion, they may not even start in Mileth at all. This is to try to
make politics something you 'opt in' to as opposed to simply being the default state.
This should alleviate a lot of problems overall, particularly in Mileth.
- Jurisdictions will be limited by mundane mandate.
- Many features exclusive to mileth are going to be moved entirely, or copied
elsewhere; functions of the temple of choosing, mileth college, and ascension
will no longer be completely off limits to you if you are removed from mileth's
jurisdiction via banishment or exile.
- Voting for ones self will be restricted to one vote per day to encourage
people who want to get into politics to actually go out and get votes. Voting
ones self into office will still be possible.
- More regions with active citizenship will be added.
- To make religion desirable for players again, participation in
religion will now carry unique rewards - higher ranking clergy members will get
unique and globally useful spells/items/abilities, such as increasing
experience, gold drops, etc.
- High ranking clergy will now be given realistic term limits, as well as
a period where you cannot take that rank again for a period of time.
- Each religion may allow a maximum amount of members to be a given rank
at one time; worshipper, acolyte, and priest would remain unlimited.
- Only high priest will require an award, and the requirements for the
other ranks will be further differentiated.
- Active participation in a religion will yield real rewards - this,
combined with the other changes, strives to make each religion desirable to
some degree as opposed to some being clearly superior.
- Religious enchantments on items have been reworked a bit so that some are
not quite as useless. (im looking at you, sgrios and deoch)
- Religion may eventually play an active role in buying stats/ascending,
pending further discussion.
- The college has moved! No longer located in Mileth, the college will reside
at the entrance in Undine. It's a lot more peaceful there anyway.
- The entire college system will be reworked, and the details have not been
ironed out quite yet. Expect to no longer require 5 randomly given rare marks
from attending class, for submissions to be fairly voted on, and for fairness
to be enforced by the GMs.
- Nobles will now get department-specific rewards to encourage
- Warriors will be given a couple more interactive skills so that the
leveling process is not simply repeating spacebar and windblade ad
- Skills for this class will require slightly harder to acquire items, to put
it more in line with the other classes.
- Hubae will be severely reworked, if not removed outright, to a far
less annoying/demanding problem.
- Item requirements will be balanced for this class to be a bit easier to
find, either by reducing the rarity of the drop from the monster or by reducing
the items required.
- Gentle Touch will be made actually useful.
- Rogues will be given more assails so that in addition to their utility, they can be worthwhile bashers.
- Traps will be made to take less time to cast.
- Suain, puinsein, and dall have been removed from this class and given to wizards.
- Ao's will now remove all versions of the spell they are removing - ao
ard cradh will remove beag cradh, cradh, mor cradh, and ard cradh for
- Spell stat requirements will be adjusted to be a bit less idiotic.
- Wizard spells as a whole will have their mana cost severely reduced as well
as their damage inflated, ideally to allow wizards to contribute to damage done
in a hunt.
- Wizard spells will now pull not just from int, but also from their
representative stat (str for srad, for example) to formulate their damage done.
- Spell stat requirements will be adjusted to be a bit less idiotic.
- Suain, puinsein, and Dall have been removed from priests and given to wizards.
- Fas nadur ranks no longer offer varying degrees of amplification;
higher levels of fas nadur offer increased duration of the spell.
Items now fully functional; ongoing content work
posted by Kedian on 2013-04-15
HEAD on the
item-variants branch has fully implemented items: stats now update correctly when equipping / unequipping items, and gauntlets and rings now function as they would normally. A number of bugs have been fixed, and this code, pending testing, will be merged back into
Hybrasyl continues to grow by leaps and bounds, now containing 575 items with all variant types (tailored, dyed, religious) bringing that number up to thousands. Work continues on mapping out current Temuair with Undine, Rucesion and Abel coming soon.
Noteworthy changes to items
posted by Heiler on 2013-04-02
In the spirit of improving upon our predecessor and not simply replicating it pixel-for-pixel, a lot of changes have been made directly to items - some specific, some general - most of which are worth noting in public format.
All items are now, by default, able to be sold to a vendor. The option to disable that functionality is present, and will only be applied to specific items for which it is appropriate (quest items, etc)
In support of the above change, all items have had a 'proper' value assigned, and a trend has been established for items of a given level/quality/rarity to follow. With these two changes, an actual economy is now possible, and the primary source of income in the early days of the game will no longer be Fiosachd Prayer.
Extensive balancing changes have occurred; too many to list here, and many are forthcoming. From stats on items to weapons to weight to durability, everything has been tweaked such that, ideally, nothing is too overweighted in any one specific area. (Example: Spiked club, a level 66 weapon, now accurately does more damage than wooden club, a level 50 weapon)
Many cosmetic changes to items have occurred, most of which are simple convenience or common sense changes. Examples include; Nadurra necklace no longer shares the same sprite as a wind necklace, songs to different towns are now color-coded (Rucesion scrolls are blue, mileth scrolls are green, etc). Potions now look different based on their effect (ard ioc deum is now a smaller red potion than beothaichs, etc) and generally anything that shares the same sprite as another item has been changed, when appropriate, to more easily differentiate.
Consistency has been established among common 'types' of equipment. Examples; Mythril gear now either adds MP, or consumes vastly less MP than equivalent pieces. Hy-brasyl gear is now heavier, but grants bonus HP. Talgonite gear tends to improve AC more than equivalent counterparts.
Variations of items have been tweaked to be a bit more balanced. good/great/fine/grand weapons no longer add miniscule static additions to a weapons damage, instead adding much larger % bonuses, making smithed weapons a viable subtitute for two handers. A 5th tier of smithing/tailoring has been added - Regal - which conveys exceedingly nice bonuses. Once implemented, tailoring and smithing will no longer have abysmal (read: impossible) chances to actually acquire grand/great/regal equipment.
Moving forward, this is a trend we hope to continue long into development; item balance is atrociously subpar in our predecessor, and is seen as an area where much improvement can be made.
Any thoughts, suggestions, questions or comments are very welcomed and may be directed to our subreddit
Heiler and Kedian conduct advanced item research
posted by Kedian on 2013-04-01
Pushing the envelope, Heiler and Kedian can be seen here trialing any number of new and weird items, while wielding the deadly and very rare "GM Slipper":
On a serious note, however, most items in old Temuair now exist in Hybrasyl, with support being implemented for item variants (automatic creation of things like Magic Boots, Cail This and That, etc.)
Item implementation complete
posted by Kedian on 2013-03-17
73e61b in the
quadtree-implementation branch completes the implementation of items, including stacking. It's now possible to drop items, pick items up (i.e. loot), drag items between slots, combine stacks, drop part of a stack, etc. Now you can litter with the best of them! Too bad there's no support for gold just yet.
Items & entity work
posted by Kedian on 2013-03-11
A new branch on GitHub,
, begins the process of implementing quadtrees (thanks to the handy C3 implementation
) in maps for entity (item/player) storage. As a result, most operations for calculating distance, finding nearby objects, or searching, are now far more efficient. This work is also a platform for a general refactoring of Hybrasyl's entity / object inheritance & structure.
Items now (somewhat) work - you can properly equip and unequip items which are properly displayed to nearby players. A lot of work remains, however, including stacking, dragging and dropping items between slots, and dropping items on the ground (a classic Temuairan feature, in our opinion).

First round of refactoring completed
posted by Kedian on 2013-03-05
on Github merged
branch back into
. This means that the Rails application and Hybrasyl server are now in sync and operating on the same schema and database (meaning everything is now live). Hybrasyl server has been refactored to use Entity Framework 5.0 and now uses EF functionality to access / modify database objects, as part of a larger refactoring of Hybrasyl's object hierarchy. In terms of functionality, however,
now represents the same functionality that was achieved before the refactoring work began! Hooray. Onwards!
Ongoing admin interface work
posted by Kedian on 2013-03-02
665305c on the
hybrasyl-refactoring-1 branch adds support for tags, and some nifty autocompletion features. This allows you to quickly define a map as having a certain tag (i.e. "Mileth") and then also allows you to quickly search by that tag. Tag support is now, in general, able to be easily implemented with any object in Hybrasyl, meaning items and worldmaps can also have tags assigned to them.
New website implemented!
posted by Kedian on 2013-02-26
As part of a significant refactoring effort on the
branch, Hybrasyl now has a webpage that has been reimplemented in Ruby 1.9 and Rails 3.2, along with a modern administrative interface. Whoa.
If you're interested in helping make the page look better, or more importantly, "thematically correct" with regards to Temuair, get in touch with us
. This is all just some Twitter Bootstrap default stuff with a whole lotta Rails.
World Maps Implemented
posted by Kedian on 2013-02-20
on Github completes support for worldmaps. Here is Kedian, newly arrived in Rucesion, as a result:
World Maps Coming Soon
posted by Kedian on 2013-02-03
on Github begins support for world maps. The packet format for this is now well understood, but I felt that there needed to be a really slick way to edit maps. So far, with a little jQuery magic, including the Annotation plugin by Chris Wood
, this is what I've arrived at:
As you can see, you can basically point and click to put down points anywhere on the map. Once a point is put on the map, you can drag it around to its final destination, and also, more importantly, set up its destination. The points are saved / retrieved via AJAX.
