Let me use this as an opportunity to remind people that the hacked OL Android clients out there don't have all the changes that have been taking place in Alroth, including the UW's that have gone live as well as the pending Portals & the new Realms once they go live! Even some Alroth maps there will be issues, likes holes etc.

I highly recommend anyone on Android to stick to Seridia at this time!

Update!

The 8 new Alroth Portal Maps are now complete, running on Test Server and in process of distribution to all players.

I believe the Inter-Realm Portal, Dwarven Portal and Human Portal maps will be released into game first while the remaining Realm Portal maps will be released, along with each Realm, currently not in game.

Hi Guys!

Over the last couple of months I've been working on the completion of  UW/Portal Maps for each Realm which has side-tracked me from my original plan...so, to get back on track my next step is the determine requirements for Realm underground(s) maps. I'm hoping to complete this audit over the next couple of weeks at which time I can revisit the 'TBDs'.

Regards
Z

Oh man oh man such an insane amount of work put in for a game with not much content(besides maps, thanks to you) yes, very fucking good work Zian, I just wish there was more things to do in these lands besides slaying inva mobs and returning to death bags which will probably take all of 14 out of 15 mins before bags poof

But yes Zian, thanks alot, mucho apreciado, you are not deserved.

This weekend I was exploring new Orchan Empire maps and some tags in Tab Maps are wrong:

In the tab map of Coennor, the exit to Thomak is called "Thirat".

And in the tab map of Haarien, the exit to Galoeviel is called "Galoviel".

Besides, in RL you can walk through the wall at these coordinates: 259, 292.

Finally, these changes are still pending.

Hello Zian:

You are in Alroth:Dwarven Lands - Zerimor - Goldenside South Farms [near 286,163]

Here there is a blank tile on the grass (closer to the rocks).

You are in Alroth:Dwarven Lands - Alkh-Endune - Castle Dulgoth [near 217,109]

On the tab map you can read the tag "Algotha Caverns" but that is the entrance to "Algotha Mountain (AM)".

The entrance to Algotha Caverns - North East is here:

You are in Alroth:Dwarven Lands - Alkh-Endune - Dulgoth Village [near 253,181]

Hi,
A couple of minor errors in LD
1) the florist at 313,235 has no map marker.
2) the marker for the Blacksmith is in the wrong location NPC is 244,100 but marker is 247,82.
The odd thing is that the marker was in right place before maps were updated, so not sure if it is the marker that is wrong or if the NPC was meant to have been moved but got messed up by the restore after the server fire.

If google maps deleted all the potential points of interest off their maps it would suck big time for the users of those maps.... In OL this "thinking" would not be much of a problem if users could share and utilise custom TAB maps between each other, however it seems that OL does not allow for this and will force players to use washed TAB maps instead.

I "think" if OL keeps deleting custom TAB maps then the game supplied TAB maps should have better details to them.

My use of the word 'think' expresses my own opinion which we can all agree everyone has the chance to express in OL forums.

If you compare EL TABs with Alroth TABs you must agree that OL TABs visually display significant details and interesting features.

Players have further options/features in the OL Client to customize their own TAB maps using the #mark, #markpos, #marker_color. However, it is my opinion that adding alot of info onto a TAB map may obscure, visually, the ability to locate a players location.

I'm looking at naming some of the larger mountains within Alroth. I've been playing with a name generator for a few hours but want to give you guys a chance to think up some cool names.

Post your suggestions here along with the applicable map name which best shows the mountain you wish to name if you want.  

I'll take suggestions till the end of the month :)

What "team" is looking after spawn development, harvest nodes and NPC locations?

I think it is a mixture of both Sawolf and ShadowGate?
