So we know that we just finished an event, but we've decided to do something special for π(Pi) day.
For the next 3.14 days there will be a .314 (31.4%) discount on all items in the Banana Shop.
As Neil Degrasse Tyson said;
"Enough Pi for everyone: 3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939937510582097494459230781640628620899862803482534211706"
For those who don't know this particular Pi day is special because it only comes once every century. The 15th year of the century is the only year where we can get to the 10th decimal of Pi! At exactly 9:26:53 it is 3/14/15 9:26:53 which are the first 10 decimals of Pi.
Don't know what Pi is?
Ever since the two year anniversary of the server we have been working towards reducing most of the prices in the Banana Shop.
You will now see that almost all items in the Banana Shop have had their prices reduced permanently, and the discount is applied on top of those new prices.
I took the server down earlier today due to spotting some potentially dangerous errors that were possible symptoms of critical errors. It turns out the errors were not as serious as they seemed, but I was unavailable for a few hours due to a family emergency.
Server is back up now, and most of the issues are resolved. Online player count is currently not working.
These issues are all related to the fix that was implemented for the cookie issue some were experiencing if they played both Sunstrider and Regenesis. We will work to resolve all of this minor issues that have been raised, and we have issued 1000 jaden to all accounts as compensation for the downtime.
I'm really sorry guys, due to moving into a new place I am restricted from accessing the server. I'm just waiting for Tcholok to wake up and whitelist my ip.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Also it appears Sunstrider has suffered some kind of error. Due to my access restrictions I am unable to resolve this until Tcholok wakes up. The server is down temporarily.
On a sidenote, the cookie issue that was affecting people who play both Regenesis and Sunstrider is fixed. All you need to do is delete your cookies for Monkey Dynasty one time, and the issue will be resolved after that.
As some of you know I moved to a new place just yesterday. The last few weeks have been difficult for me to balance the servers, my other development work, my family, packing, etc.
I'm happy to announce that I'll be able to resume a more regular schedule now that the move is completed.
I apologize for the constant delays this has caused with patching, faction changes, and whatever else has been delayed.
The patch we have been working on is simply too large to be done all at once. So we're going to split it into parts. I've been trying to think of people with low bandwidth limits and reduce the amount of times that they would have to download large files, however this is heavily delaying development and is really not feasible for this particular patch. I apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.
I will absolutely be doing faction changes and gear changes tomorrow morning, I should start them around 12- 14 hours from the time of this post.
I don't have an exact timeline on the first step of the patch, but it will most likely happen tomorrow evening for MD-Regen, and Tuesday for JM. Sunstrider's patch is entirely different and I have no timeline on that, however there will be a small patch for Sunstrider tomorrow for some critical fixes that should have been implemented weeks ago.
Can you believe it's been two years since Monkey Dynasty launched? I can't. And look where we are now!
I've been pretty far removed from the server for a while now, so almost all credit for the continued success and stability of everything is owed to the amazing staff (Perryl, EvilFlippy, Renya, and all the new faces I haven't even met!). Hats off to all of you and to the players and community for keeping everything fun and exciting.
There are plenty of surprises in store, but to get things started, enjoy some double donations!
Many of you have noticed an issue when logging into different accounts on the regen and sunstrider sites. This is because the cookies that control your login session are currently stored for *.monkeydynasty.org so they essentially overwrite each other (in your browser's cache). The result is annoying as you have probably noticed, but it is not dangerous.
I will be addressing this within the next day or two. Until then, if you regularly use different accounts on both sites, you could try using chrome for one site and firefox for another.
Thanks for your patience while we work out all the kinks of this upgrade + server migration. There are a lot of moving parts and a lot of things I setup over a year ago and don't have a great memory for it all. I imagine everything will be pretty steady in a few days.
There was an issue with voting that was caused by some of our protections, and has since been resolved.
I have also repaired item delivery and sent out the undelivered purchases from the last few days.
