Update on the development of Lunaris

Recommended Posts

Hello Lunarians! We finally have a long over-due update on the current process of our revamp. Thank you for standing along side of us and allowing the staff to put time into re-developing and bringing you this project which will be better than ever.

To answer all your questions, yes we are still working on Lunaris 2.0, however the staff team has come up with a few ideas with regards to getting
the gameplay out to our players sooner. 

We will be revamping Lunaris 1.0 (The most recent Lunaris everyone has been playing) on the same code base. We will be making certain adjustments, and will be having a full eco-reset. We will have a transfer program for all of you loyal supporters, which will be released shortly. We figured it would be best to get you guys a server that you all have loved to play in the past, so that you can all enjoy the nostalgic Lunaris content. Please note, this is not a re-release of the exact same server. Changes are being made before it is re-released to make it better. This includes, but is not limited to: Changing the home area, certain drop tables, fixing the issues with the existing server and performing an eco-reset, since we believe this is the healthiest option. We would like to keep the classic Lunaris feel you all loved to play. 

Many players who we have spoken to, whom have played Lunaris in the past, have expressed the fact that they loved how Lunaris was, and miss
the tight community it had, as well as its code. This being said, Lunaris 2.0 will still be in development, and will be released. The reason why we are mainly doing this, is because we did not anticipate the high costs of Lunaris 2.0's development process. We will be using the funds generated from Lunaris 1.0, in order to invest into the development of Lunaris 2.0.

Now, although 1.0 will be released much sooner, and 2.0 is still in development, we would like to make something clear. We are not planning on shutting down 1.0 once Lunaris 2.0 is finished and ready to release. Ideally, we would like to run both servers at once,  and provide our player base with variety. Not only will you be able to enjoy the nostalgic server that you all loved to play, but you will also be able to take advantage of the vast excitement in the OSRS based server (Lunaris 2.0).

Lunaris 2.0 is taking a little longer than we expected, which is why we are making this move. We figured it was fair to our loyal supporters
to enjoy a server while you wait for the development of 2.0. We want to give the community a fun experience while you wait.

Lunaris 2.0 will be re-branded as a different server, and will most likely be re-named. It will however still be under the Lunaris brand,  known as Lunaris Entertainment. Please also check the thread below, in order to get a better idea if you haven't already done so, on what Lunaris 2.0 will entail and what our plans are for it's development.

We do not have an exact release date yet on Lunaris 1.0, however we are currently working on getting the new home map finished. The process is almost completed, so once that is done, we will provide you with a release date shortly. Most drop tables have been fixed, and once the eco-reset is complete, we will be sure to inform you all. Stay tuned in the discord and on the forums for more information on Lunaris 1.0's release date, as it will be coming very soon!

Thank you for your patience and continued support.

Regards,
Lunaris Staff Team

This seems like a good step towards bring everyone back guys, we all know how much time money and effort the whole administrator and development teams are putting into V1.0 and V2.0 and we all appreciate it, and I know personally, I do not want you to feel rushed into releasing something that you are not 100% happy with even if that means another month or so without Lunaris 1.0 or 2.0.

However, with the eco-reset I'm sure there will be questions that people will be thinking, and may not ask;

1) For those who donated, how will this affect them with the re-release, and will/how will they be compensated? E.G through store credit or in-game items

2) What is meant by a transfer program? Does this answer the above question? Or will this come in the form of a permanent advantage? E.G a new zone with increased DR etc or receiving increased DR boost on your account?

I do not know if anyone else, would have any more specifically targeted questions, and if these have been addressed elsewhere I know for players like myself who have not been able to keep up with developments and updates consistently due to IRL commitments might not know where that is or have seen and announcement for it.

Wish you guys all the best with the last hard slog before the release and keep up the good work!
