Alethea and BrassBot are currently offline. Discord has updated the way its API works, and this has caused a small bug, in which reacting to a message with an emoji causes the bot to crash. On its own this wouldn’t be an issue, as it would be solved by a small update of the library, however the problem is that the bots were built on an older version of the library, as the library is constantly being updated because discord is constantly evolving. You can read more about the bug here: https://github.com/Rapptz/discord.py/issues/2422
What does this mean? Obviously, we’ll need to shift to the new version of the library, and this means a somewhat major rewrite of parts of both bots. This is now my priority.
Hi everyone,I feel like I’m going to start writing these more often to give you a look behind the scenes at the development of BK RPG.Some of these will be Patreon only, others will be Public.
So today, I’ve been working on two things. One is the Death Log.
BK RPG needs a system that records all player deaths, both for reference, and also that I can revive the characters if death happened through a bug or some non-player fault related incident. This should hopefully be active within the next 24 hrs.
The other thing I’m working on the moment is the long anticipated Guilder Shop Sellback feature. This is a somewhat larger project, and involves adding the functionality of selling items back to the guilder shop for Diamond Dust, a Shop for using Diamond Dust, and also a few special things that can be bought with the Diamond Dust.
For each of those items, I need to code in the effects of those items, as well as add them into the game system. This is a preview of one of them:
The final thing that is happening behind the scenes is writing the actual text version of the storyline of the next few releases. Get keen for some surprises!I think that’s all for now, the first Behind the Scenes!
As promised, pets will be coming soon to BK RPG, and Patreons will be able to get them before anyone else!
Pets will be feedable once per day (assuming you have the food). These cute and courageous companions will also provide special effects, like buffs or extra damage!
The power of these buffs can be increased too! Just like you, your pet will level up as you gain experience, and feeding it can also speed up the process.
Some pets will be Patreon only, and Patreons will get early access to pets when they are released! As a special bonus to Patreons, if you show your pets love and feed them regularly, they may even give you a gift in return!
If you aren’t a Patreon, definitely check out our page here and consider supporting! As thanks, you’ll unlock a variety of boosts in BK RPG!
(Despite Sasha’s best attempts, there will be more than just cats available as pets in BK RPG)
