Lacus is here!
After way too long, we now have a new area. Take the boat from Cooridat to Lacus and go beat the shit out of some tough mobs.

New mob status effect system! Easier on the server, full of less bugs, and now you can add three status effects to them.

Valor status went from needing 200 killed to 125 killed in order to fill up. No one was even getting to 125, 200 was way too high. To encourage people to play exploring in bursts, there's now 'boosts'. You can only use one burst a day. One is a cool rampage effect and the other is one that gives you more breeder exp.

Bonuses from having more monsters in the raid have been raised. Now it's [raid number * (0.1 for every monster)].

Zunram's city page is a bit cleaner now. World stats page now shows how many mobs people have killed that day. Cleaned raids up a bit. "amassing lots of SRP" is now a bit more intelligent.

Bugs
Fixed a monster-name-changing bug, and also made monster-name-changing a lot cheaper. Other bugs.

Dev Notes
And thus ends my little spree of coding MonBre. Back to MurCity! I will be checking in a bit for bugs and various tidyings, probably related to the forum. I'll likely poke around and kill some bugs tomorrow before my official focusing-on of MurCity.

My main goal here was to deliver old-player content because it's been a while since the oldbies got anything new. So I give to you a new land full of excitement and 100 x 100 tiles. lol seriously you can't really explore out of lacus's area. I'll probably fill up content a bit periodically. Anyway, enjoy the update, MonBre should be fine on its own until January.

Me likes lacus, but the flashing valor effect thing is kind of dumb, and I can't read it.

See, Killer, this is the attitude I was talking about yesterday. No, it's not dumb, it's awesome, you just literally can't see that. I wish people would understand that things they don't like are not instantly bad. I suppose it is too much to ask of today's society.

I thought I made a blind-friendly version but I guess it didn't pick up, so I'll fix it in about 4 hours now when I come back from school.

edit: and now it's done.

I meant that the fact that it just disappeared and no one could read it was dumb. But it seems interesting, but I just can't get 75 val points 'cause of schoolwork and meals and sleep and stuff like that

Yeah I dunno if 75 is very realistic, or if even 125 is. I'll have to actually play my game for once. It may drop down to like 60 and 115ish. But the max valor will still be 125.

I think that heres an idea:
Each day, you collect valor points, and it saves half of what you collected, I.E.
Day 1: You get 30 valor points
Day 2: You still have 15 valor points. YOu get 42 valor points that day.
day 3. YOu have 15+21=36 vallor points. YOu'll just keep adding on until you save then use a boost. BY the wa, is the bounty thing extra experience each day or what?

Too confusing to hold the valor points. Bountiful will give you a decent amount of breeder exp.

Hi people.

yes, checking In again. lovely to see monbre didn't get forgotten, sinse that was the reason I left, however if updates are indeed in the offing and the game is to remain active concern with new stuff coming in periodically then I'll be very glad to stick around for a bit, explore those mighty huge maps and beat up some mobs as indeed I like to do in these sorts of situations.

Welcome back Ekitrina!
Your excuse for coming back is a bit weak since you are only at the beginning of the game and left too soon.
Anyway, enjoy!

That is true, I do have more to do in the game, however it would be nice to see the last few bits polished off, the schools and campuses added etc, ---- and what about vip mode?

I usually like to support any good game financially, but I can't find any page to sign up for it, or indeed any of the bennifits other than what some other pages have said.

Lastly, are there any guilds still raiding? I'd love to try some raides sinse they sound fun, and indeed the auto sign up raide option might be nice in that case, ---- but I'm not sure if anyone are doing them or not at the moment.

I am in full agreement with that!
The only VIP feature currently active is the VIP board.
I'm working on getting Mina to make Heart of the Dragon accessible for all.
Raiders of Monbre was active until about a week ago but, I don't know what's happening there.

Well fighting raides could be fun so I'd be interested if anyone is looking for members.

though as regards monbre that's a shame on both counts.

This is sort of what I meant when i spoke about game items not finished, it just seems there are some rough edges with the game, good though it is, and it'd be great if these were fixed, ---- or at least if an accessible Monbre Ii was in the works.
i saw the comment about Ajax, ---- but to be honest there are alternatives, rather like the way that some parts of the current game have the choice betwene flash or normal text.

Hello Ekitrina. Yes I do have to admit that this game should be updated and it shouldn't be forgotten as this game is really good. And I do have to say that if Veil Victus or whatever decides to abandon this game and do something with flash and AJAX and shut this game down, I will! Not! be happy with that! I love this game and the creator should keep it alive!

I will never shut MonBre down. It is still played by quite a few people, particularly the blind community. I have no idea why it's appealing to anyone else, but hey.

The fact people still play in 2012 astounds me. And that there are guilds I haven't heard of, just raiding. I so badly would like to put out a patch for you folks, and in fact had considered a "MonBre 2" or "MonBre: reloaded" to fix some glaring issues. But the code is so bad, that it's actually incredibly aggravating to work with now.

Perhaps some day, the engine I create will house a MonBre alternative. I could do so much more with MonBre than what I did. I really wish I could've involved the breeder more in the battle, and why I didn't think that people would want to fight with more than one monster at once... I have no idea.

I'm glad you guys enjoy MonBre. But with everything I'm doing nowadays, it's impossible for me to justify patching it up. Unless there are some quick fixes you guys could think of.

... actually, if you guys want to compile a list of terrible bugs or annoyances, I may be able to review them and fix them for fun.

Well as long as this monbre reloaded is going to be accessible for the blind, I will be interested. As for annoyances or bugs there are none that I can think of at the moment.

I just started to look into building web pages and can begin to imagine the mess Vael has do deal with here. If only I knew more...
After the new splicing system I can't imagine a more then one monster fight.
As for annoyences, does missing towns count? Just kidding, I know it's more work then it seems.
But, what about the pay for Dice Rolling, Blackjack Dealing, and Door-to-door Salesman, it's always 150, 300, and 500 respectfully.

It sounds like it would be a whole new game.

Anyway, the pay is right for the base pay but when you do well and very well it's supposed to double and triple respectfully. And for some reason all hard work only goes to 1300 in stead of 1500 but, that's fine. The problem only seems to be with the luck raising jobs.

PS No matter how high the levels or stats the monster always does just fine.

Compared to the functioning script and/or source it shouldn't be too hard. But, don't waste your time. Just forget it.

Well as I said before their's no bugs I can think of, but am still loving the game. Really looking foreword to MonBre II, if you decide to do it. Also, If you wanted, I could design a Monbre IPhone app, although I'm not sure if it would be worth it.

It wouldn't. The way I can develop currently is such that what I make in the browser will scale to an iphone or any other tablet device.

As for a MonBre 2, I'm not sure it'll ever truly happen in the sense of a "Monster Breeder 2", but I can tell you that in the next major project for the BCN, which the engine will be creating, there will be a monster hunter. In that, you may find the spirit of MonBre.
