Christmas Events Resolved a problem in which the world alert (irc broadcast) was displaying some incorrect information. The chance to get holiday coins from event monsters has been increased across the board. Lower level creatures have had a small boost to their christmas scroll drop rates. Zombies will no long spawn when you die in the scroll events. For more information on the Christmas Event click here Christmas Monsters Monsters attempting to teleport to ranged attackers to defend themselves will now properly range check to the target. The 9 Reindeer minibosses are now vulnerable to provocation. Also adjusted their stats to account for some advanced difficulty vs non tamer players. Fixed a problem in which Bad Santa was dropping clothing items much more often than he should. He will drop a random clothing item 25% of the time now. Slightly increased the drop rates for holiday scrolls from low level monsters in the overworld and dungeons. Monsters Special item drops from monsters will be nullified if a monster is killed in a guarded region with/without the assistance of the guards. You will recieve a system message should this happen. Note: This will only affect special rare drops that are given directly to players under normal situations. Such as platinum, holiday coins, rare item drops, etc. Website Interface Completely re-designed the system that talks to the website every 5 minutes to improve performance. Removed 99% of the overhead in communication that takes place. This should help with server performance and processor overhead. Note: Rather than reporting banned/non banned accounts to the website we are now reporting total accounts. This is a simple performance tweak and overall was pointless as out of our 30,000 accounts, onlty 150 are banned (most for advertising) Designed the basic aspects of an improved control system for the website interface allowing more ingame control for the staff. This will allow us to enable/disable systems should any problems arise without having to patch/reboot the server. World Alert System Resolved a problem in which the world alert (irc broadcast) was displaying some incorrect information. Resolved a problem in which certain player names and page contents were not be provided to the staff Young Program Young Players can no longer access the corpses of other players. This has no effect on monster corpses. This will address the issues with young players looting the corpses of non young players in the new player dungeon. This will however not resolve the level of shame a player should feel having left a corpse in the new player dungeon.
