Rundown of Work

Hey all,

I decided to post a basic rundown of what I have done this week.

  • Worked on some room descriptions.
  • Back-end work on the server and game.
  • Re-added website to various search engines.
  • Finished the EMH.
  • Created and finished the EMoH (Emergency Mobile Hologram)
  • Created and finished the ESH (Emergency Surgical Hologram)
  • Added the medical flag for current/future game uses.
  • Added an in-game medical log allowing entries by different medical personnel.
  • Fixed various locked exits, allowing for appropriate global IC access.
  • Updated our TMC page.
  • Added the Timeline page.
  • Added the Specifications
  • Added an auto-updating list of Turbolifts to the website.
  • Updated the Starfleet Directives page.
  • Updated the Terms of Service
  • Added a complete listing of positions on Starbase 900.
  • Added various bboards to the game, for more variety in the future.

  • Opened up Guest accounts, so that people can try the game and check out the tutorial.

Well, that’s a basic rundown of what I have been up with NewHopeMUSH. I’m not sure if I’ll keep doing a summarized list or not, as trying to keep track of everything can be difficult, especially when talking about minor bug fixes, but hopefully this interests people as well. 🙂

April 2016 Update

Hey all,

This is an update about what I have been up to and where I have been.

Frankly, for awhile now, I had lost interest in working on NewHopeMUSH, due to the lack of on-going interest from other people (most people were joining then would leave), and this was very difficult for me because I got to a place of, “Why bother?”

Mind you, I’m not trying to blame other people, but trying to speak from my heart. I do apologize about taking so long to post here and explain what has been going on with me and NewHopeMUSH.

Further, while I can’t guarantee how many updates I come out with or how often they occur, I can state that I am working on the game again and have no plans to stop doing so.

I enjoy working on NewHopeMUSH and want to continue doing so. If anyone has any questions, feel free to contact me using the contact form on the website or by using the in-game @mail system.

Thank you,
Kimojuno.

About The Future

Hey all,

Just wanted to take a few moments to post about what changes we can expect in the future.

I have been working on the test game, in order to fully develop what I want from other planets, and how interstellar travel will eventually work. This excites me because it means that Away Missions will be possible and will allow for exciting and different roleplay to occur, once the game is where I believe it needs to be to be operable and ready.

I have also been working on the shuttles and turbolifts, to get everything where I want it, and where I imagine the game can and should be. For now, however, there is still for me to do. I expect that it will all take some time to perfect, simply because I am doing the majority of the work by myself, along with working full time at my job, and as such this takes a significant amount of work to progress and get where I want it to be.

Thanks for the patience,
Jeffrey.

Website Issues

Hey all,

There were some issues with the webserver today. I believe I tracked down the cause and have solved it, but should it happen again, please let me know. In any case, should anyone have any issues, please email me about it or contact me on the game via page or @mail in-game.

Thanks,
Jeffrey.

Gameserver Updates

Hello all,

Some updates have been applied to the gameserver, which NewHopeMUSH runs on, and all updates were applied without a shutdown. There should be no interruption to anything, and the game remained running while the updates were applied.

In any case, if you do see anything let me know, but everything appears to be working properly.

Thank you,
Jeffrey.

Sick Days

This week, I haven’t done much other then getting the +bio command to show where people are properly, along with fixing some general background-issues with security (such as allowing people into certain rooms, etc). This is mainly due to me not feeling to well, and taking more naps this week than normal, since I’ve been feeling under the weather and have been tired.

Thankfully, I can feel myself getting better, and the cold leaving my system as the week goes on. In any case, this week has been more of a rest time than anything else. Hopefully, by next week, I will feel more like myself.

Thanks for your patience,
Jeffrey.

Those We Love

Hey all,

This weekend has made me think about some things. There are many things I am grateful for, my family and friends chief among them.

It is weekends like this past one that make me consider how thankful we should all be for our lives and our friends and family that surround and take part in our life.

If we learn nothing else from life, and the lives of those around us, may we learn to enjoy our lives and to partake in the joy of being surrounded by those we love.

LLAP,
Jeffrey.

Week of 2-26-15

Howdy all,

This week, I have been working on finishing out the +map on the decks, and have completely added the descriptions to the empty decks on the +map command. I have also added new commands to the commands list on the IC Grid, along with some various bug fixes that I found revolving around that command (e.g., only styles that needed to be corrected/updated).

Furthermore, I did some more work on the Crew Quarters. I also updated and changed some more of the background commands and structures to bring them more in-line to what I want for the future. Furthermore, I am also working on some changes that will, hopefully, make everything much better in the future.

Finally, I also worked on the replicators and believe that they are almost ready. Just a few more changes and those should be ready by next week, barring any issues, but they should be ready soon.

I would request that people test out the Character Generator though, as I just want to make sure there aren’t any bugs with that. I have tested it myself numerous times, and believe it is fine, but just in case I would like some more eyes going over it. If you have already completed it, I can reset your character so that you can go through it again.

Well, that’s it,
Kimojuno.

What’s new this week?

Voyager

Hello all,

So far, this week, I have added the +map for deck 2 and worked on deck 1, along with various descriptions throughout the game. Speaking of decks, you can see a complete list of decks here.

Furthermore, there is now a FAQ page listed here, along with a complete listing of NewHopeMUSH players here.

As normal, I am requesting help with testing the Character Generator in-game, along with help describing the various rooms.

Thanks as always,
Jeffrey. 🙂

Server Reboot

Due to a reported security issue, I rebooted the server a few minutes ago. Everything is up and running now. Total downtime was about 5-7 minutes. Everything is up and running now.
