RuneRebels Black Eye (2.8.7) - A New Year!
« on: January 30, 2019, 09:10:12 pm »
RuneRebels 2.8.7 Black Eye

After the extensive holiday partying, the RuneRebels headquarters was a mess. There were scrolls of code scattered all over the place, tons of admins passed out in various rooms, dwarven stout spilled all over the floor, and redberry pies with swarms of flies laying all over the floor. There was a lot of cleaning up to do, so the team quickly got to work! While they were putting things away, they noticed that their cabinets and drawers were a a complete unorganized mess. Onur couldn't even find the dish soap to clean out all of the pie dishes! "Guys, if we want to be able to live here this year, I think we are gonna have to do some serious cleaning" said Bill. With that, the team got to work scrubbing the headquarters to get it to be as clean as the water from Baxtorian falls!




Happy new years players! We are thrilled about reaching our one update per month goal for 2018 and are very excited about doing the same for 2019. While working through many of the updates from the past year, we improved a lot of the tools and processes that we use to develop the game, and I've been able to greatly expand the ways that the other developers can contribute to the game. As part of setting ourselves up for some very large content focuses updates this year, I took some time to massively clean up and modernize many plugins and the server game engine itself. There is a large amount of low-level code that I wrote back in middle and high school that still powers the game to this day that is starting to show its age and is making development harder. With this update, I've cleaned up, removed, or re-written a significant amount of that code, which is why you will notice that Marshmallow's summary at the bottom of this post is excessively long. Almost every plugin has also been modified or cleaned up as well. This not only makes it easier and faster for me to add new features to the engine and plugins, but also means that all of the things we build on top of it will contain fewer bugs from the start and cause less headaches for developers.

That being said, if you notice anything that was previously working that is now broken after this update, let us know via the forums or Discord and we will fix it ASAP. At one point during development I accidentally broke interacting with Npcs (including the bankers!) with a one line change, so if any other issues crept past us we want to hotpatch them immediately. Over 9000 lines of code in over 300 files have been modified:



We have some really cool features and content in the pipeline, and this update is the first step in delivering them to you!
- The RuneRebels Dev Team







Tools:
Added author field to quest files.

Castle Wars:
Fixed various cut off dialogue when talking to Lanthus.

Refactored over 9000 (literally) lines of code in the game engine spanning over 300 files.
Fixed a bug where ItemAddedToInventoryEvent could cause Blitz Errors in various locations, such as High Alching, Crafting, etc.
Fixed a bug where you could gain negative XP by auto retaliating against Flytraps.
Fixed a bug where you couldn't note or unnote claws.

Fixed a bug where you could follow players while wearing a morphing ring.

Commands:
Added ::teletonpc.
Added ::whereis to locate players.

Shops:
Fixed various incorrect shop prices.
Added the ability for shops to have multiple owners.
Fixed buying behavior so buying a greater amount of items than free slots available in your inventory will simply fill the free slots rather than failing.

Crafting:
Fixed a NullPointerException when repeatedly using the spinning wheel.
Fixed the amount of leather needed to craft Hard Leather bodies.
Fixed a bug with the spinning wheel animation.

Tutorial Island:
Fixed a possible Blitz Error in dialogue.

Fixed a bug that allowed you to smuggle invincibility off of Tutorial Island.

Farming:
Added the majority of the missing farming messages; you should no longer see "INSERT MESSAGE HERE" messages.
Made the number of roots you get from digging up a tree base itself on your farming level; previously you would only receive 1 root.
Fixed a bug where some farming messages were cut off.

Herblore:
Added the correct messages for mixing potion doses.
Added the ability to mix 3 and 3 doses or 2 and 3 doses to make a 4 dose.

I love and hate this update. a lot of the quirks of runerebels are slowly dissolving but on the bright side i can make 4 dose pots and i can buy vials in a more efficient way. Overall this is a much needed batch of quality of life updates. thanks for the work you guys have been putting in! We all appreciate it
