Elite creatures now have a large view distance and raid/dungeon/world bosses now have a gigantic distance setting. This change mainly affects dungeons/raids considering the majority of the npcs are elites or bosses.
The results are truly fantastic – Special thanks to Cyberium.
Announcements: – The first Arena Season will kick off this weekend as stated in the banner. We skipped Season 1 due to SSC being available at launch. – The Eye progress announcement this weekend, mainly concerning decisions on how intial testing will be preformed, such as whether it will be on PTR or Live and what will drop for testing runs prior to “offical” content release (if on live) and a rough timeline for releases. – Hyjal showcase screenshots in #pic discord channel (may need to scroll up). The place runs beautifully, big credit to the cmangos devs for their work in there.
General: On other notes, since adding the pvp vendors, the pvp daily and tweaking the system to ensure it’s balanced numbers wise it seems we are in a good spot. I’ve had some really fun and engaging WSG matches in the past few days. Lets keep them going!
Supporters: Lastly big thank you to the few who have donated. We have successfully covered this months server bill and a tiny bit of next month. Couldn’t ask for anymore ❤
And also all the groups who have provided feedback on the raids, plus our bug reporting members 🙂 We’ve come a long way and theres always more things to improve upon.
Issue Tracker: If you want to keep track of the more prominent cmangos bugs, feel free to following the offical cmangos issue tracker. Be mindful that it’s an area for development not discussion. https://github.com/cmangos/issues/issues
So here we are two weeks from open beta and everything is looking good. Profession assistance in Outland to get skills to 300 is slowly getting sorted and should be finished before open beta release. Plus SSC is extremely close to full completion. In it’s current state everything is ready aside from some trash packs being a bit to easy.
A lot has been going on recently. With our private server open beta looming and the introduction of a number of volunteer closed beta testers [who we appreciate very much :)]; the team is running on all cylinders and as a result development is in full swing.
Website: We have a new menu tab called About/FAQ. Hopefully this page will provide more insight to people who haven’t seen our posts on /r/wowservers or need a more personal answer to their questions
After announcing our arrival into the private server scene on the /r/wowserver subredit; we received a ton of brilliant feedback and this week has been really busy for the TBC 5 Man team as a result. A lot of discussions, brainstorming and farting around!
