How's everyone today?.. Sounds good.. Anyhow, I have important news for your ears! Throughout the weeks of our recent resurrection of DungeonRealms, we've worked extremely hard with our three ("3") man development team to provide the best possible RPG experience. However, we all known the death like rubber-banding that occurs after the shards ("Server(s)") have been running awhile. Well.. I bring you good news! Actually.. great news! We've started a backend re-code of the core infrastructure of DungeonRealms, now.. You may be saying.. "WHY", "WHATS THAT MEAN", or "HOW DOES THIS IMPACT US". Let me tell you. A re-code of the infrastructure will allow us to; 1. Make quick and fast changes. 2. Add content. 3. Quickly update between versions(1.8->1.9), and much.. much more.. What do you mean by re-code of the core infrastructure? Basically.. When DungeonRealms was originally created or shortly after it was created SOME of the individuals who were deemed as "programmers" were.. Let's say learning the programming language ("Java"). This led to the shifty backend of DungeonRealms and its outrageous conventions. This is one of the main reasons that we're re-coding the infrastructure. The re-code has already started and is about 50% complete. The "re-code" was started several days ago. This shows the amount of redundant and inefficiently written code.
Once this new backend is in place our team can personally guarantee the follow;
- Bye... Bye.. Sluggish Rubber-Banding
- Upward of 200+ per Shard capacity.
- Asynchronous Data Structure. (RIP MySQL).
And much more..
I won't spoil future updates but, I can say I'm really excited to see some Voxel 3d Models and hear Regional based Music. ;-) NO MORE INFO FOR YOU!
