RuneRebels 2.3 Aquila Launched!
« on: February 18, 2017, 04:14:02 am »



RuneRebels Aquila (2.3) is the second content update we've been working on.
Although there is minimal new content in this update such as new weapons and monsters, we are still very excited to share
what we have been working on. With each and every update regardless of size, we've been able to remove the many obstacles in our way allowing us to further progress in our development.


With this release we have fixed many doors and ladders, introduced The Restless Ghost quest and the Grand Tree, fixed numerous bugs but most importantly added many important Developer Tools needed to continue development. We have also increased our World reboot speed (something that greatly hindered the development process) by a whopping 400%. Originally the reboot time was 2-3 minutes, but now it has been decreased to just about an average of 22 seconds.



Quests:
We know most of you are heavily excited for the release of more quests that will lead to more content. Although with this update we are only releasing The Restless Ghost quest, the tools that we have added to our Quest Editor will greatly help us progress further in the other quests that we are working on. Not only that, but we are very excited to finally implement the correct Quest Complete Rewards window, as well as the proper music! It's the little things like these that we love adding to the game, which aid in the realistic/nostalgic feeling that we are trying to achieve.

- Added proper Quest Complete Rewards window!
- Added Quest Complete music!

We are glad to have you all here to enjoy these updates, and it will only continue to go uphill from here.  8)

This is great shit why don't you copy-paste this post onto a RuneServer advertisement thread smh it's like you're asking to not advertise your awesomeness..  :-\

There is a reason why we're not all out advertising just yet. RuneRebels was dead for the longest time, and before then even with a small community much like this one right now, the only updates pushed out lacked real content. If there even was content added, it would be half broken (no disrespect to past progress) and not only that but many false promises were made. So now that we have come back with a revamped staff team and process, we want to make sure that when we advertise new players will come to a server much different than what we had before, full of content and a true nostalgic feeling of 2006 RuneScape. There's is still more to be done before we are ready to start placing ourselves on the forefront, so for now we shall stay within the shadows until the time comes to rise from the ashes.  8)
