Todays updates - 18 August 2016

Updated on 18 August 2016
> Having a GWD boss pet follow you around in the GodWars Dungeon will now make the minions belonging to that god unaggressive (either lucky or regular version), in the same way as wearing a piece of equipment belonging to that god makes its minions unaggressive.
> Praying at a GWD altar now gives +15 bonus prayer points if you have the boss pet from that room following you (either lucky or regular version). This bonus stacks with the bonus prayer points you get when wearing gear that belongs to that god.
> Praying at a GWD altar when transformed into an NPC from that boss now gives +30 bonus prayer points instead of +50 (aviansie for Arma altar, ork for Bandos, werewolf for Zamorak, priest for Saradomin, archmage/death for any altar including Nex). Stacks with pet bonus.
> The max hit dummy's defenses have been removed altogether for ranged & magic attacks so you can't splash on it anymore :P
> Transformation spells (bought from the Make-Over Mage as optional part of The Last Journey quest) now cost 1250 donator credits each instead of 1500. Keep in mind that the Morph Ring (from the magic chest in a player-owned house dungeon) also has these transformation spells included for free, provided you have enough charges.
> Fixed a bug where if the database connection fails, players log in as level 3 accounts with no stats or items. Everyone always gets their original account back when the database connection is restored, but now you'll get an appropriate error instead of logging in as level 3.
> Improved the way database connections are handled, so the server can easily recover itself when such failures happen. Up to now, we had to manually restart the server to fix faulty database connections, but as of now the server will be able to recover them on his own and any such issues should only last for a couple of minutes at the most before everything is back to normal.



Also, we're organizing a wilderness event this weekend! This means extra PkHonor Points, Bounty Hunter Points, combat XP and clue scroll drops in PvP, as well as higher droprates, slayer points and slayer XP on all monsters in the wilderness! Enjoy!

Keep in mind: we organize a weekend event every single weekend, but we don't always write a news post about it. Remember to check ::events every week to see what the currently planned event is.


Don't forget to follow my client upgrade progress thread for the progress of our new client. Keep in mind, everything stays the way it is (everyone gets to keep every single stat & item & all our NPC's and features remain the same). However, we'll be getting a fullscreen & resizable client, as well as access to every single map, NPC, item and object from 07scape :) I'm really hoping to release a first version on the testserver by next week, but that's only if everything goes as well as it did the past 2 weeks. I may encounter issues or roadblocks that take some time to get past, but I'm sure everything will turn out just fine!

Client source upgrade - progress thread

Okay, it's time to confess that I haven't actually worked on the Pest Control improvements and Elite Void as I had promised.


:cry: I let you down. I should take my responsibility and resign. You don't deserve a failure like me.


But, on the bright side, I didn't work on PC because I had my head stuck too deep into reworking the new client to become the new PkHonor client. The road ahead is long and treacherous, but at least I've made some great progress already. I'm hoping you'll forgive me for som...

Where was Mike the past 10 days?

On vacation in Great Britain :)

But now I'm back and eager to get back to work!

What to expect the coming couple of weeks? Me nolifing PkHonor.
More specifically?
> First of all, further fine-tuning of the Pest Control game & release of Elite Void equipment. I kinda wanted to release this before I left on vacation, but I was afraid there may be bugs or imbalances in the new PC game, which I wouldn't be able to take care of in my absence, so I chose to postpone it until I got back. The final release...
