  1. That is correct, about 15 to 30 minutes. I should have documented this, but it appears I didn't. Thanks!

  6. One of the things I really like about the real life channel in our Discord is all of the people posting pictures of their pets so I figured we should do the same here!
  7. Hello everyone! Today we are releasing the Beta Account Center. This new part of our website will allow you to activate and manage your own Beta account (rather than waiting on us to sync the database), as well as copy characters over from the live servers. The Beta Account Center can be found here and through the navigation bar at the top of the site, under Account Center. Specifically, this is what the new system will let you do: Create a Beta account if you don't have one already. This is done for you automagically when you visit the page for the first time! Synchronize your account information to match your live account. This does not include your characters, but does update your password. You can do this once every 20 minutes. You will not be able to access the Beta Account Center to copy characters while your account is being synchronized. Queue to copy characters from any live shard to beta. You can queue 1 character copy every 20 minutes (subject to change based on load). You are able to copy over any character that is above level 1. We highly recommend logging a character off before initiating a copy. - this will ensure that the copied character is up to date. You can copy the same character over more than once, but only if that character is not already in queue. So what's all this about a queue? Well, because of the load that we are anticipating before our stress test on Saturday, all character copies and synchronize requests are put into a queue. You will be able to see the characters that are queued up for copy on the homepage of the Beta Account Center though the estimated completion time will probably become somewhat inaccurate as the server load increases. Please use this thread to provide feedback and report bugs for the Beta Account Center. We look forward to any feedback that you all have on the new account system and hope to see you all at the stress test on Saturday.

  9. Hey everyone! I hope you all have enjoyed the winter event so far! If you still need any badges then make sure you get them before next Tuesday (the 31st) as this is when the event will be ending. Our legal fees this month are quite small and we do not have any additional expenses in January, so this month’s donation target will be more in line with where we were before. We have added a Google Voice line to our G-Suite account to have as our dedicated / registered phone number - this will be an additional $10 per month going forward. December 2019 Last month we accepted $9203.16 in donations - $46.43 over our target for the month. The new Google Voice line cost us $7.24 through to January 1st but will be $10/mo going forward. Additionally, the two 1&1 IONOS charges that got cancelled in November charged us early in December, increasing our bill with them for December by $20. Here is the breakdown of what the December funds went towards: $4,820.39 to OVH for our hosting $3,607.05 to our lawyers for their services rendered from Sept. 30th to Nov. 8th $96.00 for our Google G-Suite Business account $75.00 to renew our Invision Community license $50.00 for our 1&1 IONOS domain & outbound email services This includes the two domain fees that got moved back from November $10.00 for our Atlassian Jira Cloud instance (10-user) $8.34 for security / administration software $7.24 for our Google Voice line through January 1st January 2020 We received an invoice from our lawyers for their services rendered in November totalling $148.20; this will be paid in early January. We do not have any additional expenses in January and we have $20.70 overrun from December which will be applied towards the donation target for this month. In total, the donation target for January 2020 is $5,102.69. Here is a breakdown of how the funds are allocated: $4,820.39 to OVH for our hosting $148.20 to our lawyers for their services rendered since Nov. 9th $106.00 for our Google G-Suite Business account This includes the new $10/mo cost for the Voice line $30.00 to 1&1 IONOS for domain services & outgoing email $10.00 for our Atlassian Jira Cloud instance (10-user) $8.80 for the security / administration software We have met our donation goal for January. Thank you for your support! Our donation system will be open as of the time of this post with a donation target of $5,102.69 and will automatically close once that target is met. The past 8 months has been incredible and we’re really excited to see what 2020 has in store. We hope everyone enjoyed the Holidays and has a great New Years; just remember to stay safe! - The Homecoming Team
  10. Hey everyone! Winter is upon us and so too is the Winter event! In case you haven’t read the patch notes or seen it in-game for yourself yet - snow has covered Atlas Park, presents have been scattered throughout our beloved city, and the Winter Horde have arrived! You can read more about it here. As per tradition on the last Saturday of each month, it’s time to go over our finances and donations over the past month and the upcoming month. November 2019 Breakdown Last month we accepted $9,071.36 in donations - $36.06 over our target for the month. We had some additional charges in the past month which includes a 1-year DocuSign subscription which will allow us to handle more of our legal documentation ourselves (reducing our legal costs going forward) and a new business address from UPS to act as our primary business address. Here is the exact breakdown of what the October funds went towards: $4,820.39 to OVH for our hosting + $9.97 to sync the billing for the new A-1 purchased in October $4,251.75 to our lawyers for their services rendered up to Sept. 30th $240.00 for a 1-year DocuSign subscription $157.00 for our new business address from UPS (6-month renewal term with setup fee) $137.76 for some domains (used for our new legal documentation) $96.00 for our Google G-Suite Business account $30.00 for our 1&1 IONOS domain & outbound email services $10.00 for our Atlassian Jira Cloud instance (10-user) $8.80 for security / administration software Up $1.85 from previous months December 2019 We have received the next invoice from our lawyers totaling $3,607.05 which will be paid in early December. We will be including an additional $509.49 this month refill the contingency fund from the additional one-off expenses in November (DocuSign, domains, and UPS). Our monthly (recurring) operating costs have increased by $1.85 as cost for the security / administration software previously mentioned increased slightly. Otherwise, our other monthly (recurring) operating costs have not increased since October. In total, the donation target for December 2019 is $9,156.73. Here is a breakdown of how the funds are allocated: $4,820.39 to OVH for our hosting $3,607.05 to our lawyers for their services rendered from Sept. 30th $509.49 to cover the one-off expenses in November (DocuSign, domains, and UPS) $96.00 for our Google G-Suite Business account $75.00 for our Invision Community renewal (6-month) $30.00 to 1&1 IONOS for domain services & outgoing email We’re hoping to eliminate this after December $10.00 for our Atlassian Jira Cloud instance (10-user) $8.80 for the security / administration software Our donation goal has been met. Thank you for your support! The next donation window will open at the end of December. Our donation system will be open as of the time of this post with a donation target of $9,156.73 and will automatically close once that target is met. Thank you for your continued support; 2019 has been an amazing year and we couldn’t be happier to have our City and community back. We hope everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving and enjoys the Winter festivities. If you’re traveling for the holidays then please be safe! - The Homecoming Team
  11. I would be happy to create an endpoint for 3rd party developers to fetch the stats presented on our Server Status page without having to rely on scraping. I have a few things to do that take priority at the moment, but I can probably get something to you tonight 🙂
  12. We're actually already looking into expanding the colour system in the character creator. I have a short post about it here:
  13. Enabling or disabling the view of auras is a good idea and definitely something that we'll look into 🙂
  14. The current way I have it mapped out (and prototyped) is as follows: The existing palette remains but is moved into a sort of tabbed view that goes between that palette and the new colour picker The new colour picker as the following: An HSL colour square that you can use to pick colours R/G/B input (with text entry and sliders) H/S/L input (with text entry and sliders) A smaller palette of colours that are in use in the costume already (so that you can easily use a colour on multiple pieces by selecting it again) The HSL square / picker looks something like this: I could add a way to just enter / paste colours in hexidecimal (RRGGBB) form as well, though with the other inputs in place it may or may not be worth the UI clutter.
